Another year

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?"
    -Mary Oliver
   "The Summer Day"

I won this yard of Japanese cotton from the Sew Mama Sew blog - I selected it from their store, and the fabric feels so soft and silky that I know it will be a joy to sew. It seems that I am drawn to these colors right now as yesterday I stopped at Tuesday Morning and found a few wonderful skeins of ribbon yarn, and when I returned home, I realized that they were in the same color families. 
I made these little flowers from ultrasuede yesterday - I had gotten a wonderful book from the library, Fabric Jewelry by Teresa Searle, and plan to try quite a few of her ideas - not for jewelry but change them a bit for scrapping embellishments.
This is a layout that I made with SEI Monsterville - don't you just love those funky little monsters? You will be seeing quite a few new layouts done in the new SEI lines and the new Bella Blvd lines so stay tuned!
Hope you have a super day!
and thanks for reading!
