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.

Fall is coming.......

Every day that I am in northern michigan I take a walk. I had the privilege of being up north for 6 days over this Labor Day weekend. Saying it was wonderful doesn't do it justice. As I walked each of those 6 days I could see the leaves starting to change and fall. It is amazing how fast things change if you only pay attention. I have been busy creating leaves for my tree, so I have "leaves on my brain".  I couldn't help but notice how amazingly beautiful nature can be.  I picked up a few of the fallen leaves on my walk this morning. I don't think anyone can create anything as exquisite as these. I am hoping that you can stop and enjoy the beauty of nature and may you enjoy the transition to fall.
