SweetHeart

Wow, the wind is howling right now!  Our house is so old that when the wind really blows, the curtains billow in and out!  When the Christmas tree is up, sometimes the ornaments blow on the tree!  I know that sounds terrible, but it's really not that bad.  It's just almost impossible to keep up with all the repair these old windows need.  We love our old house - in spite of it being a money pit!


I just got a set of the sweetest heart collages from Iralamija's shop.   I glued one of the hearts to ecru notebook paper and trimmed around it with my old "seagull" Fiskar scissors.  I'm not sure why, buy that paper makes me happy!  

The theme at Paper Issues is All We Need Is Love.  Lots of inspiration to see and you can link up your own projects.  Check it out!

Right now I'm going to try printing on fabric using freezer paper.  Have any of you done this?  I have a little anxiety about it working, but after driving all over town to find freezer paper, I have to try it!

  1. You always have the sweetest images Lori! This is darling! Talk about wind, our house is practically shaking it is blowing so hard here in Victoria, it doesn't help that we are only a few blocks away from the ocean. My poor dog is lying on my feet as I type, she doesn't like the wind much!

  2. This is so sweet, Lori! I grew up with the wind howling through the windows, too. Gotta love the old homes.... Can't wait to hear/see how the printing comes out.

  5. I'm glad you finally found freezer paper! You'll have to let us know how it turns out.

    Goodness, it's been windy here even for Kansas. It even knocked Paul's motorcycle over last week.Thankfully, we're supposed to have really nice (unseasonably nice!) weather for the next few days.

  16. I can't wait to see what you made with the printed fabric. Oh no, I haven't done it myself yet. I wasn't kidding when I said, "you first!" LOL...
    But I'm so relieved to hear that it was successful for you. This gives me much hope. :)
