Another Hooked on Fridays post, thanks to Julia for hosting this party ( and please visit the Inspired Room for her Beautiful Life post as well, she has a wonderful give away).
So I am sitting down last night to pre-order issues of Sew Somerset and Art Quilting Studio from Somerset Publications and thinking how much I am craving a bit of fabric art. I have been dreaming of learning new techniques to use fabric in my mixed media art. A seamstress I am not, but I needed some inspiration to put my sewing machine to use. Now I know I posted about how I was hooked on bloggers and one of those bloggers is my Silver Bella BBF Jodie leJeune of Everything Vintage. Well y'all (Jodie speak) won't believe what was in my mailbox today! That sweet as sugar Louisiana girl sent me a birthday gift. Not just any gift but a fabulous hand made, quilted, personalized mixed media banner. My favorite colors, favorite song and favorite family(mine).
Jodie is absolutely too much! Can you believe this piece of art she created just for me? I have to show you each little detail. I am so hooked!
My song "Forever Young"...
Me and my hubby. I think this was at the bar at the Embassy Suites in Omaha last year during Silver Bella. (Please disregard the double chin...I've had some work done since then...har har...snort....I crack myself up.)
The other part of my song...
My daughter Sadie...
And all this delicious detail, my kid's first initials used in clever ways and little snips and bits that suit each of us. Plus, red and yellow and black and white and touches of blue, all the colors I love in my home.
So you can see why I love blogging and art and Silver Bella because that is how Jodie and I became friends, and over the distance from Ohio to Louisiana I send her my admiration for her talent and my love for her as my friend. Thanks so much Jodie, I am hooked on you.
BTW, Jodie also has an etsy shop for anyone who would love to own a little Jodie art for yourself.
If you are going to Silver Bella this year we are going again too! Hooray, Yippee, Woo hoo!
Have a weekend filled with friends and creativity, P.
