winter frost

january has begun with a new frosting of snow. i love beginning a new year, it seems as though every day stretching forward is fresh and filled with wishes.

it is a time for dreaming up new plans and leaving behind the used ones. 'meet the robinsons' is such a charming movie, the ending is my new motto: keep moving forward.
two new things for me this month:
i will be the guest designer for artsymama's new inspiration blog 'a year of color'
i chose the blue and white month as i am continually drawn to these colors. i will be posting photos, a craft tutorial, and ideas all month.

my etsy shop even gets a few new plans for the year. i will be featuring a limited number of petite art kits, one for each month of the year. january's kits is 'winter frost' i have gathered together a collection of beautiful things to celebrate the frosting of winter. inside the box lined with vintage flocked wallpaper you will find a collection of vintage trims, millinery stems, and fabrics all tied up with a sprig of flocked winter buds.

february's kit 'cupid's kiss' is a sweet pink and white kit i will be listing next monday. two other new additions for the new year will be color themed vintage wool bundles, and pretty bits, tiny art treats always under $2.

happiest new year wishes, julie

I discovered your blog through Artsy Mama and what a treat! I'm sorry that your fabulous blue and white frosty kits are all sold out. booo hooo.

I haven't designed in this lovely color scheme before and I'm so inspired to make a lovely crown or tiara.

Thank you for your inspirational blog. I love it!
