I know I sound like a very broken record at this point. BUT a lot of time is invested into my other company 6 by 6 Arts most of my days and wedding planning too. I have set aside time to do what I love to do, make kanzashi. Particularly wedding bouquets. While I have a few readymade on hand at The Handmade Showroom in downtown Seattle, I haven't had much available online. I remedied that a little by listing this very timeless Burgundy and Cream Bouquet. I will post more selections as they become ready.
Since it is wedding season, I have pulled from my stash some kimono to deconstruct and begin the process of kanzashi making in different palettes. I am truly delighted when I find a beautiful fabric at the bottom of my storage bin and know that I can give it a new life.
*Full disclosure* and you already know this if you've been following me a while, I am fabric junkie. Since the day many years ago when I received a discarded kimono as a gift for quilting, I've taken a certain pride of bringing these beautiful pieces back to life. Out of all the things I do creatively, that makes me the happiest. How about you fellow crafter/makers out there? What do you create that puts a smile on your face? I'd really love to hear.
