Printer's Tray Finished!

It feels like I've been working on this project forever, but really I just started and then forgot about it lol.  Last week I finally finished and I LOVE, LOVE LOVE it!
I looked for inspiration on Pinterest but like my own soooo much better than any I found.  If I was starting over I might desaturate the color on the photos a bit more, but you know ... hindsight ... Oh well, I still love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

My First Pin Cushion

So after signing up for a Mason Jar Pin Cushion Swap, I was inspired to attempt my first pin cushion  before my swap creation.  One of the blogs I follow http://heartofagypssy.blogspot.com/ is Gladys Moreno who makes the prettiest pin cushions from vintage tea cups and anything pretty she can get her hands on.

 Sooooo . . . following her examples I started sewing and stuffing little cushions.  The first cushion I made was a little small for the jumbo sized mason jar I'm using for the swap, so I found this really cute pink ramekin in the $1.50 section and Michael's and created this little gem.  I absolutely love it!!  I use stick pins on the cover of most mini albums and on altered pieces, so having this pretty pin cushion to store them is perfect! 

I am not one to just sit and watch TV, so if there is a show I really want to see I will sit and make stick pins in different color combinations while I watch.  Now I can store them in a decorative way instead of just stuck into a piece of styrofoam and hidden.  I have so many stick pins still in the styrofoam though I think I need to make another pin cushion already.

My swap Mason Jar came out so adorable that I can't wait to show it off.  As soon as I know my swap partner has received it I will post the pictures.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my latest creation!
