I absolutely love the message heart I ordered from Stephanie Lee. You must go read about them here. I inched in an order just in the knick of time via e-mail on Monday. It came today! I can't wait to hide it in just the right place.
Lookie at the little bag it came in! I asked for acid green~she obliged!
xoxoxo Stephanie!
Here are some pages I have left over from the the Plaster Pages class I took from Stephanie at Art & Soul in Hampton last year. It was a fun class, and she is an amazing teacher. We used plaster of paris, which I hadn't used since grade school; and Rigid Wrap brand plaster gauze. It is really cool stuff, AND I had forgotten how much fun I had using it in her class...until my little heart came in the mail today!

A long-time blog friend in Kansas, commissioned me to design a simple choker to wear with a vintage cameo brooch from her grandmother. She sent a picture, and I went to work. I used lacey vintage bead caps, faceted lemon quartz rondells and Swarovksi bicones. She loves it.
Happy Valentines Day
