On a personal note: I'm so sorry to left things hanging, here. It's been on my mind more than I can say. Last week, we had to grab 'Mouse' the cat & the dirty laundry and head out of town to help with a serious family illness. I thought I had until the 28th to update you for the auction but I got it wrong (more about that below). It's been an emotional time, so please forgive my scattered brain.
Possible blog break, for the next couple of weeks: I did bring some projects with me, but I'm not sure if I will be able to get them blogged. I'll keep you posted. I hope to finish up my last 2 guest posts with Amber Ink this week.
Skipping Stones Design breast cancer auction:
I got the date wrong in my auction post. I feel like such a complete jerk! (Isn't it crazy how severe stress seems to cut off all of your regular brain functions?) So sorry, it's not the 28th as I had posted but the August 23rd. But there's still a little time to bid until midnight Mountain Standard time tonight.
First off, here's a photo of the secret box
that I built into the back for ya:
(Sorry about the photo quality; I'm away from home...)
It's a panel that slides out:
And here are the other 4 little flower sets
(There will be 9 of each style, 5 styles in total. You can change them out
for a different look to the canvas or use them for whatever your heart desires)
Book page flowers:
Pale turquoise flowers:
White with Black flowers:
...or I could make them into tags, if you prefer:
The winner will also receive these 3 large
shabby chic flowers:
(hand cut from a new template I drew
that I'll be sharing with you all soon)
a white one:
a black one:
a fringed white one:
[The white flowers have a soft flocked texture because they're
made with cardstock that I covered with Golden Light Molding Paste
and then texturized with a wooden Batik block.
The black one is made from Core-dinations cardstock.]
And you'll also
win these three notebooks:
One notebook with a teeny tiny envelope & letter:
(Measuring just under 3" wide x 5" tall)
It's got hand-coloured embossed canvas,
lots of hand stitching,
& a vintage black taffeta label:
One notebook with cut out shimmer sprayed poppies:
(Measuring 4-1/2" x 4-1/2")
The poppy background is one I made by copying & altering
the Wild Fall Poppy image from A Day for Daisies.
There are real poppy seeds in the flower centers.
And a third one with shimmer emboss-resist
using my fave Skipping Stones Design pattern:
(Measuring close to 3-1/2" wide x 4-1/2" tall)
It has stitched panels & a little hand-stitched
"notes" sentiment up top:
And that's it.
The whole shebang goes to today's winner.
