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.

Christmas Ornament #12 Thread and Bells

This ornament was so much fun. I have a lot of "do dads". I have been waiting to use them for something special. After 5 years of nothing special coming up, I decided to use them for some Christmas ornaments. I had this collection of small old spools with thread on them. I thought the red and green would look great together. I also thought that this bell would round out the Christmas look. I plan on making a few more of the whimsy ornaments out of some of my older treasures. May you jingle all the way to Christmas.
