craft : handmade floral collages




i like to make petite floral collages and have more than 20 of these everlasting bouquets. not sure why i haven't shown them before? they're made with tiny paper flowers, beads, bows and vintage trim all assembled on a hand painted watercolor background. an online shop might be nice to sell some? i really get hung up on the packaging and shipping part, though. wrapping is not my forte. i'll work on it and study the excellent posts by paper n stitch and modish.

scott doesn't know it yet, but i'd like to go apple picking this weekend, but not sure where. or, the queens county farm museum fair. or, the new bright star and the informant! movies look good. hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

xo, cindy

your first comment is killing me! i am so sorry but that made me guffaw. was there a big lag time where no one commented for a while? i know this feeling - sometimes there's a big delay before a first comment on one of my posts and i think, "oh, i've finally done it. i've driven everyone away."

but not to worry, we all love you and will not run away from quaint handmade. darling collages and excellent plans for the weekend, even if scott doesn't know about them yet.

Cindy, If you guys go north of the city towards Highland and the other towns along 9W, you'll get a lovely view of the Hudson and some of the best apple picking ever. There are orchards and orchards and orchards.

raspberries and apples sound great! that's exactly how i felt, aimee! i guess i'm spoiled and needy. thank you pj, i will check it out for sure.

and, i drive myself nuts when i leave a comment and then it winds up in my in box tricking me into thinking it's from someone else. it's going to happen now, but i'm ready for it ;). i need to go out today and get a life ;).

Have fun apple picking!
Sounds like fun, and if I were doing it, a great way to keep my mind off of the fact that my baby is already 4 days past due!

a quaint handmade shop would be fantastic ;)

when i was a teen i collaged everything i owned with magazine clippings and glittery nail polish.
i love to collage, these are adorable!

Wow Cindy, my fave part of these is the eye-catching watercolor background! I am a HUGE watercolor lover, and the jewel-toned drops of color make the whole piece so unique! Very nice! :)
