Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Journal 22 Weeds in The Garden

Week 22 is titled Weeds in the Garden. I had recently purchased a new lens with the help of my friend Tim. He is a phenomenal photographer and helped me pick out my 100mm macro lens. Right before a huge thunderstorm I saw this dandelion sitting in my flower bed. I snapped the shot. Not perfect, but still one of my favorites. Not two days after I took this picture and article was forwarded to me. The article talked about "Weeds in the garden of medicine". It was addressed to those of us women who choose a life over a career. I found it highly entertaining, and so this quilt journal is dedicated to all you weeds out there. May you have a full life and enjoy every minute of it!
