I hope everyone here in the U.S.A. had a fabulous 4th of July!!! We enjoyed the fireworks in Boston and they were by far the most amazing fireworks I have ever seen (and I have seen many).
I am working on the video for the origami dresses..it's just a little tricky to find a time where I don't have my kids interrupting me for more than 15 minutes at a time and so I am trying to figure out how to get them involved in something so that I have at least an hour to set up the video camera, my supplies, my thoughts and then making the video.
Here is one of my 3D projects I made for the Artisan Award that did not win:
I picked up this cute embroidery hoop at Jo-Ann and used that pretty Sew Pretty Stampin'Up fabric that is now in the brand new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog. I originally wanted to use a photo of me wearing my wedding dress since it was made from scratch in Italy from an awesome seamstress but then I realized that one of the rules for the entries was to not use a picture of ourselves. My dear friend Giovanna from Sardinia came to the rescue when she told me that her dress too was made from scratch from a seamstress and amazingly enough her dress was from the same collection (different dresses but same collection) so she gave me permission to use a photo of her...I'm thinking about her often since she is going to have surgery on Monday and I am praying for her every night.
