Unlimited Amount of Items: may include Shirts, Sweatshirts, Jersey’s, Children’s Clothes, Scarves, Towels, Blankets, Tank Tops, Boxers, Pants, Ribbons, Patches, Button-ups, Hats…
as long as it’s fabric, I sew it into the blanket.. I send back the items I don’t use with the final blanket.

I try to use the front and back of all shirts, sleeves and all parts of special items.

Other Items: Pillows, Throws, Scarves, Duvets, Pillowcases, and any other suggestions or ideas you light have.

The Process:

Gather your items that you have… you would then send them to me.. I then, organize, sort and cut. I cut the size depending on the largest print. Each blanket is unique and made for the items given to me.

I will take pictures and email them to you..from there we can rearrange, change, take out.. so on.. each step I ask for approval..

– Cutting, Organization, design and Layout

Handmade Jewlery Box – plant themed, beads, buttons and LOVE

This week I have spent time unleashing my artist side through beads, buttons and a few other crafty items.. Here is what I made with a wooden jewelry box:

The little compartments are my favorite part, but I do like the slide out on the lower half.

I cut out plant images from a favorite magazine of mine and used some Mog Podge to stick the pieces on and also puts a shimmer glaze on top. I took beads and buttons and strategically placed them. The top right corner has a jubilee of beads.

Beads outline the inner part of the slide out accompanied by beautiful plant photos.

the upper compartments have been painted and embellished with photos and beads.

the sides of the box are photos of greenery from different outdoor plants and of coursed lines with beads.

the underside also has a full sized green scenery.

I had a great making this.. I think we should all just sit and create at times.. it’s good for the soul.

* thank you, Shon Lawhon for helping with the pictures..the blanket wouldn’t fit on our floor in the house.. it’s too big! So, we brought it outside and hung it over our storage garage.

Do you have a loved one who has passed away? Want to preserve their memories?

What a beautiful idea…

cuddling up tightly around your loved ones clothes, shirts &ย  items when you miss them or just need to spend time with them.

I recently made four memory blankets for a family whose father/husband had passed away..๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Colleen, wife and mother, kept all of his clothes, socks even!ย  and had me create these beautiful memory blankets. We also added digital photo ‘squares’ to the blanket.. I made a collage of varies photos of their dear Father plus their favorite photo of him in a field of sunflowers.. what a beautiful memory to hold on too.

I made this pillow to them as a gift. Here’s the other photos of the pillow:

His birthday would have been on Valentine’s Day! I know they miss him, but I do hope that these blankets brought an enjoyment to their hearts they haven’t felt since his own hugs. I do believe he is still with us and that I felt him a lot making these blankets.. very big warm hug to you and yours, Colleen.

Loving what I do….


Thank you Thank you Thank you… feeling blessed.
