What’s on my worktable ?

Hello my dear friends,
today I would like to share some exiting news with you!  I will be the FrenchKissed  October Artist-in-Residence and I’m really excited. Above are just a few images I will be working with. Trisha Jacobs from FrenchKissed has the most wonderful images and it was hard to choose which one I wanted.If you haven’t checked out her Zibbet store already go and have a look. ( just click on FrenchKissed )  So every Friday starting October 7th I will do a tutorial on her Blog. I will keep you posted on that:)
Here is the dustpan converted into a chalkboard and I’m happy with it.  An overdue thank you to Rhonda and Anni.
Rhonda sent these adorable altered matchboxes a few weeks ago. Merci Rhonda -  I just love them. And here is what I send to Rhonda in return.
From Anni I received this beautiful fabric Thank you card.
Thank you so much Anni that was so sweet of you and I love it.
Above are a few soldered charms I made  to be used in a future project.
A warm welcome my new followers  I’m  so glad you’re here. As always, thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. Hope to catch up with you soon.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and love,

Dear Marie
I am beaming with delight that Trishia and you will be working together. So excited at the prospect of you working with her images. I used the English Lady for one of my AIR projects (an altered tote).
Trishia is such a gem of a woman.
(the notebook and birthday hanging I made for you were Trishia's images so you can tell I am a huge fan!)
