quick collages

{i am four}
{i am four}
Last night I worked late. I ran by my house earlier in the day to grab a small bag of items (I wasn't picky) so that I could do some quick collages while the kids slept. This is one of the two I made. This morning I quickly finished it up at home by gessoing (is that a word?) the card and sewing around the edges. In total this took me less than 15 minutes. I really like it. There is something fun and explorative about working with a small amount of items in a short amount of time.

This little tag book was the other one that I made. Most of these items came from a package of goodies that Heather sent me with the exception of the printed paper from Katie and the words which were my own.

♥ I have today through Monday off. How awesome is that? :) Today I plan on cleaning and organizing/unpacking. Tomorrow I am taking my mom on a date to see Tim McGraw! Sunday we're going to visit my sister, Deana. No plans for Monday yet but over this weekend I literally have 18 items on my project list to try and tackle. :)

Joleen, Its exciting to see what you have done with your HannahGrey goodies! I look forward to being able to share these lovelies on the website. Is that bingo card heavy like the ones I sent or lighter weight? Love the stitching.
