Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results


I made a new ‘ornamental’ for my tree.  Again, I love these personalized soldered Christmas ornaments.  They are so much more meaningful when the faces belong to you.  🙂  I LOVE these faces…I’ve been so BLESSED by these faces and the hearts and souls that go with them.

My daughter wrote a post on her blog for an assignment in school.  If you have a few minutes check it out and then she has a few ? that you can answer at the end.   easy~peasy!  This girl continues to amaze me with her life ~even though she has some time-management issues…(you asked for it)   🙂 she’s done with that assignment!

Be Merry!

Merry stockingI am making another one of these hand-pieced stockings.  I sent the other one off ~ never to be seen again and it made me a little sad so I decided that I could just make another one….it’s just that easy!  🙂

Be Merry!…is my favorite Christmas sayings…it sounds a bit demanding but it goes along with the whole ‘joy’ thing.  ~Sometimes we just have to choose it.

Be Merry~

fabrics used in this stocking are Daisy Chain by Amy Butler purchased at QuiltHome.com ~ for added embellishment I have used portions of an embroidered vintage piece of linen, old buttons & silver thread
