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.

Leaves 40-49

These leaves were part of the grouping that I did from upholstery fabric. Decorated, yet again, from the bin of treasures. (a.k.a. junk) The leaves are decorated with scrapbook items, old cigar rings, magnets, doo dads, and even a class pin from 1938.  Soon I will take a picture of the tree. Interestingly, my original goal was 52 leaves. The tree is at 49 leaves and it looks like November......bare. This is perfect for me, that means I get to create more and my garage gets funner and funner to pull into everyday.
