D O N E!!!

I am finished with my Stichery Sampler!!  I am so excited it is complete.  I just need to find a cute old frame to put it in and hang it on my wall.

I wasn't quite sure what to do for my last three blocks, and decided I loved the polka dots from the yo - yo and I might as well try some red dots next to it.  It reminds me of the French General jewelry tool kit I bought.

Then I decided the little birdie would be a nice finish to the piece!  The orange and black weaving was an Ode to my October Tags I am making for the Silver Bella Year of Tags swap :)

Now I am sitting here trying to decide if I should spend time finishing the tags, OR should I sort out what I am putting together in my art journal??  I received the art journal from evalicious, and it is very cute.  However, I am thinking of using the papers in a bigger sized 8x10 journal since that is what I had in mind working with.

hmm, decisions, decisions.  Does anyone have an art journal they are working on now?  I'd love to hear about it and how you like to use it!

Happy Crafting,



  1. beautiful! I love it! I was thinking it would be fun to set up a grid and do one square per day, in order, for a month. Wouldn't that be a fun project? On days when you had more time, the square would be more elaborate...on days when you're running around like crazy, maybe it's more simple.
    I love your sampler!

  2. Amy I LOVE that idea. I may just get one set up for August and give it a whirl! Thanks for your comment :)

  3. I am impressed! I am horrible at stitching but all my friends are so good at it. I wish I was better! Yours is quite nice!

  4. I just love it Rachel! It is so cute!! Love the red dots next to the yo-yo! Did you make the yo-yo yourself?? The art journal that I am using is the junkin journal swap that I hosted last year at Silver Bella! There is a pic on my blog I think it is April or May. I think that I have some inside pics too! Mine is about 6x9. The pages inside vary from small to slightly larger than the book covers. Hope that helps!
