Hi Bloggerettes!  My head is still spinning from all the lovely creative spaces that you all have shared.  I was up really late last night visiting a few....fell asleep with my laptop on my lap.....come on admit it, I know you've done the same.  I plan to get right back on this evening and go drool some more.  I am totally blown away by the creativity and the beautiful spaces that are being shown.  Wowzer!

I just love Karen at Graphics Fairy, she has the most amazing images.
And she is so sweet to let us borrow them for free!
I found this galvinized bait bucket and knew it would look great as a  planter.  I also knew that one of Karen's mermaid images would look perfect.

I also managed to finish up a pillow and I think it turned out pretty sweet looking.  Yes?
I used a fern leaf image from Graphics Fairy!  Thank you Karen.

What did you manage to make, or find, this weekend?

Hi Sissie! It has been a while since I have had time to visit. I always enjoy your wonderful creative projects. I lost my friend Gypsy June 4th so have been busy helping her daughter empty her apartment. I posted a few posts on my blog if you check there you can read about it. I miss her, but I know she is no longer in pain. Hugs

Love the fern image ~ it is one of those things that makes me feel cool just looking at it, Sissie! I haven't found much for myself lately, but I have been shopping with one of my clients. A couple of stores I need to head back to on my own I think.

Hi Sissie, Looks like you have had a busy weekend, love all your creations, especially the pillow! You know I have a thing for pillows! Since deciding to make a big move to another state I can't think straight, nor have I had time to blog, I have major withdrawl! Miss all my blogging friend, but I will be back as soon as I can clear my head. I hope you have a wonderful week!

I always love your goodies and these are no exception Sissie! I have a bait bucket in my garden and Deb suggested I put a candle in it, I love the glow that comes from the tiny holes. Now I may have to head over to Karen's for an image! Thanks for sharing, Theresa

Hi Sissie,
I love them both!!! I had forgotten all about that mermaid image, I'm so glad you found such a fun way to use her. And that pillow is gorgeous!
I scrolled down to peak at your creative space too. It's fabulous!! Of course I knew it would be. So soft and feminine and pretty. I can't imagine a lovelier space to spend time creating in.
Thanks so much for linking up your pretty projects today!
