A Charming Day, A Swap & A-Dressing the Situation

Amber Dawn has come up with a great idea, but before you click the image below for the details, go visit Terisa at Running With Scissors to read her charming post - it's a lovely tribute to Amber and the perfect lead in to:



Love the idea ... if you do too, make sure to leave a comment on Amber's post.


Perhaps you've already seen this one:



... maybe you're even signed up for it ... well, I've thrown caution to the wind and me, TOO! At this point I have no idea if I'll be trying to create an actual doll or a softie sort of creature ... thanks goodness there's some time ... if you haven't already signed up, click the image above for the whole scoop


Finally, please visit this post:



It was Monica and her Pink Artist Project that inspired me to not only participate in my very first call-to-artist charity event, but to actually start my blog ... I will forever be grateful to her. So, even though I know zero about making a dress, you can bet I am going to learn. Either click on the image above or HERE for her unique request.

So I was intrigued by the Under
The Sea Swap when I read your post on Sunday, but after a houseful of company over the weekend I didn't think I had the energy for it. But it keeps haunting me--I'm such a swapping junkie--and I think I NEED (lol) to do this one. Looks like a good one...thanks for the tip:)
I'm already signed up for A-dressing the Situation--that Monica is always doing something good, isn't she?

Robyn said...

Looking forward to seeing what you do. Gotta hand it to you Michelle...you are certainly game...making a dress with no previous experience...good for you!

Bairbre Aine said...

Oh Michelle, Thank you!!!!
I love, love, love the links for Charms and softie projects.
I make charms and softie dolls and dresses too.
What fantastic inspiration I've found here...and it's because of you!
Much thanks..and another ta for visiting my page.
My wee students had fun creating the fairy houses. All natural items collected around our school grounds.
My favourite part, sharing with them about being more "GREEN" at home.
My wee attempt to make a difference in the world. :)

You are so sweet to share these projects and links!!! Oh...I'd really love to do charm day and under the sea swap...but have to slap my hand and say *no Lisa* and stick to my priorities. It is exactly what keeps getting me in trouble and *behind*!!! ~wink~ I'm looking forward to seeing your creature creation...what fun!!!

I'm in on addressing the situation though...and me too, not sure about making a dress but I'm going to figure it out! And, that is funny...Ms. Sunshine is the one who inspired me to start blogging too...she is something else and the biggest sweetheart!!! I wish my poor blog were better...I'm trying ~wink~...but I, too, will be forever grateful for her telling me to just do it...I've met such wonderful friends! I'm grateful that she talked you into starting too...you've got it going on girl!!!

Thank you for swinging by and leaving your sweet comments! Hope the sun is shining on you...~Lisa ;-)
