Crocheted and Clear Flowers

I've been crocheting my little heart out over here making these cute little flower embellishments. They are coming out really nice! I will be making a 2 layer crocheted flower with a Swarovski crystal center. These are just gorgeous and they catch the light just right!

I also have been making these clear flowers. They are great for layering over a stamped flower image. I like how you can see through them so it doesn't take away from the project. It adds great dimension though.

I'm Dreaming About Flowers!

I've been busy making flower sets for my etsy shop lately. I wake up thinking about colors and shapes. How funny that my brain just doesn't sleep when I think I am! Oh's good to be creative I guess. Somehow it's a great stress reliever when it's not quite warm enough to enjoy a day outdoors yet.

I'm trying to make a couple new sets of Benevolent Blooms a week so I can get back to painting gourds. It's sure wonderful to have the time to decide what I want to do instead of fitting it into a crazy schedule. Did I say I LOVE retirement? LOL

Have a super day,
