Altered wood accordian pieces using ADORNit and "Spring" banners for sale.

Hey everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Mine wasn't great simply because I caught the cold but that is going around.  I haven't gotten much of anything done this weekend at all, and to tell you the truth I've felt just cruddy enough not to care. lol
I had worked on these earlier in the week, so I thought I'd share them with you today.   While the girls and I were out to lunch one day last week, we stopped into a little shop, and I spotted these wood, free standing accordion fold pieces.  They had a design on them but nothing spectacular.... and that's okay, because it just made it that much easier to cover when I altered them. lol

I used ADORNit papers and stickers on both of these.  The one with five pieces I used to alter with our family photos .  ADORNit has some great paper collections.  You can see them all here.

I made this one for my sis with her adorable grandson on it.  They were so fun, I wish I had more of them to alter.  They are the perfect size for a gift for someone for their desk at work.  Well, anywhere, mantel, end table ect.

Is he a punk'n or what???

This is what I started out saying a few days ago.  I really thought I was just "a little HORSE" lol from sinus issues.  We are way past that now.  geeeezzz   This is nasty stuff that's going around. It doesn't help that I haven't had a cold or been sick for a while.... because I'm really being a baby about it. lol
I am a person who loves sleep and when something disrupts that ... UGH.. like this coughing, ... I am not a happy camper.  
Here is hoping for improvement tomorrow.

I mentioned a while back that I would have a few SPRING banners for sale. I had some orders, so while I was at it I made a few extras.  If anyone is interested just shoot me an email at

Each banner piece is approx 4x5.5   Lots of machine stitching with gold thread.  You can see in the close up shot below.  ( and you can click on this one to see it larger).

Stickles was used on the flowers and Diamond Glaze on the butterflies.

$14 plus $3 shipping ( US only)

Okay friends, it's back to the couch for me.
I'll be back soon
