I should be cleaning up but....

 Hello my dear friends,
it seems to me everytime I'm trying to clean up my studio I find things to create with,lol.Here is a fabric collage I just finished.Needless to say that my studio is still a mess and in need of a major clean up.
A few days ago my dear friend Julia from Vintage with Laces surprised me with this gorgeous
lace heart. I'm sure you all know Julia but if you never visited this talented gal go on over and have a look at all her beautiful creations.

Julia also included this lovely tag.

Thank you so very much,dear Julia - I just love the heart and tag you sent me.

Now I'm off to clean up my mess:) Wishing you all a wonderful Monday and as always thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.I hope to catch up with you all tonight.

Hugs and love,

Dear Marie,
What a wonderful collage , I love the egg shell...and branches you used and
Julia`s heart is so beautiful and vinterly white. Love her tag as well.
You are two so clever gals, that I`m very happy to know.

Lynne Moncrieff said...

We prefer that you create and not clean because we are then able to view your beautiful art.
Such a precious heart and tag from Julia.
Once you have cleaned you are welcome to pop on over and help me clean here!

Lynne's said it all Marie! But on the other hand my experience is when you start cleaning you usually find stuff that you're perfectly able to use one of these days ;-) Lovely collage and Julia's heart is gorgeous with all that lace! Hugs, Ira

Auch das Herz und das Tag von Julia sind fantastisch!
Viel Spaß noch beim Aufräumen:-)
Eine schöne Woche wünsche ich Dir

I do the same thing Marie. Start to clean and find things I forgot I had and I'm creating before I know it.
Maybe that's the way to do our art,just start to clean !

Rhonda said...

Oh Marie, you are too fun! Love your fabric collage, messy studio and all!
I did clean this morning and now I need to sew something.
Julia and you have inspired me!

Mosaic Magpie said...

Cleaning is just another word for treasure hunting around here. I find things I have long forgotten I had. Your collage is beautiful, you know I love the bird. Sweet heart gift!

sharon said...

Well Marie if cleaning up inspires you to create this then I don't think you had better stop! Birds and twigs and laces - gorgeous!
How sweet of our dear Julia to send those dear little gifts. She is a treasure herself.
I am so happy to have you both in my life through blogging.
Sweet love and hugs to you,

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Good morning, my dear Marie! Creating is so much more fun than cleaning up, isn't it? Your bird collage is fabulous. I love the nature elements you've added and the little nest. I'm glad you like my heart and tag.
Have a wonderful day and stay warm!
Big hugs,

Sonya Badgley said...

Hello my friend,
Your bird collage is breathtaking, Marie. Nothing better than creating with the nature theme.
Your heart gift and tag are very pretty. Julia is so talented.
I know just what you mean about trying to clean and getting sidetracked! :) I do it all the time!
Have a wonderful week.

Robin said...

Your fabric collage is beautiful, just like the heart and tag you received from Julia! Hope you are having a wonderful week Marie.


Joanna said...

Beautiful heart for one with a beautiful heart!

The tag is super too!

Hope you got your clearing up done (or more arting, which is really much better!).


Minna Perälä said...

Your bird tag is s lovely - reminds me of becoming spring!!Also Julia´s heart of lace is stunning - you both are sooo talented!!!!

Angie said...

Marie, I certainly can't identify with the need to clean up a scrap room .....LOL. I also want to just play because it's much more fun.

Love the pretty items you received. Your work is outstanding too.
