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.

Ornament #15 Snowflake
The snowflake was one of the easiest ornaments to make. I saved it for last as this can be so much for to make with kids on Christmas Eve. If you are one of those people who go out shopping after Christmas for the deals, then this is for you. I managed to pick up these glitter snow flakes that were intended to be gift tags. I took each one out of the package. The had plain white glitter on the front. I then added whatever embellishment I could find. Scrap booking do dads are great for this. I made many different kinds. My favorite is the snow flake on top of the snow flake. This is my little nudge for a white christmas!
