Love is Wonderful XOXOXOXO




Love is wonderful - we always have plenty to spare & share - so share it as much as you can. Wear your heart on your sleeve and even your purse! Handmade nuno felt purse with many hearts is now in my Etsy shop. I wet felted it using the softest Merino wool, added prefelt Merino & silk hearts, silk thrower's fibers & then laminated it all into some pale purple silk chiffon hearts for added shine & color.

The Big Reveal - Craft Warrior Shop Open - Benefits Special Operations Warrior Fund

It's official folks - the Craft Warrior shop is now open. 8 wonderful items created by great artists with all the proceeds going to a great cause! Head on over to http://www.etsy.com/shop/CraftWarrior

I'm not thrilled with the photo of my bag in the shop, so here is my shot.



It's not really as crooked as it appears in the Etsy shop, at least I don't think it is. I used Romney & Merino wool, pink lace, various sheer fabrics for the heart and some great Swarovski crystals donated by Pat at Aussie Threads & Fibers. Head on over and admire the beautiful items & spend some dough for a good cause!
