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.

Ballerina Slipper

Every year the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Petoskey Michigan has a Christmas Open House. The ballet dancers decorate their shoes to raise money for their summer classes. I purchased this ballet toe shoe. It was made by Joyce Richey. I got to pick from about 20 different styles. They were all decorated differently. The creativity was amazing. This ballet shoe hangs in my studio as a very creative piece of artwork. It also represents those young individuals with a passion for what they do and the hard work they put towards achieving their goal.
