Just thought I'd share...

...a little something I made at Chicks in the Sticks when I was home in Idaho in January with my "chicks".  

A sweet little collage made out of a vintage postcard with the Hawaii Mormon temple on it.

Simple and easy.

I made it from the inside of a book-cover that I simply tore off an old book. 
I decoupaged a page from the book and a copy of the vintage postcard on the front.
Then I glued bias tape along the torn edge and punched holes for a ribbon hanger on either side.
The flowers are made from a kind of fabric called silk essence.
 I curled the edges of several circles of fabric by melting them over an open flame, then stacked them and sewed a couple of seed beads to the center to keep it all together.
Put a little hot glue on that baby and voila!

You're an artist.

Oh yes, and what exactly is Chicks in the Sticks, you ask?


Let's just say, it's an event that causes so much laughter that the attendees go through a box of Depends in a weekend.


(More details coming soon.)
