Merci! Paris Petite Inspiration Swap

Monday, July 5, 2010

Hello, I hope everyone's holiday was wonderful. Little One and I spent the weekend just puttering around together and doing lots of outdoor 'stuff' since it was beautiful in S.C. this year.

Heather hosted a beautiful themed petite inspiration swap about Paris. Ever since I was a child I have been full of wonder about art, beautiful castles, and countrysides in Europe. I do love working petite which is a recent recognition as I work my way back to the love of art I left behind for other journeys. It's been an interesting journey back with the technology, even with the types of art.

My lovely partners were Michelle and Cristina.

Michelle sent this stunning box with absolutely beautiful fabric images, lace, vintage bits and bobs, tags, glitter, sweet french themed glass and vintage papers. All in drool worthy shades of creams, taupes, and browns. The images I knew immediately I would be making a collage for my Mom who will swoon about this. I LOVE IT! Thank you so much Michelle!

Cristina sent this wonderous box full of yummy shades of reds, creams, taupes in the forms of fabrics, lace, buttons, papers, and the most scrumptious buttons, cards, and papers as extra goodies! Oh gosh, thank you so much Cristina!

I was certainly spoiled and appreciate the time and love that went into this swap by these lovely ladies. Please visit their blogs for more beauty.

This is what I made for the ladies-I love how we each received different theme colors. I have been loving the cream, white, grey, black, and blue lately.

I sent them a goodie bag made of a vintage hankie with vintage baubles and beads (seen above), then I made these pretty tags pictured above to go on top of the package.

Enjoy! Till next time, Kris
