Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

L.O.V.E.Banner :~

When I am hosting an art retreat or workshop it’s nearly impossible for me to make anything…especially when I’m teaching.

It makes me a little sad but it’s just the reality of it.

On Saturday, after the luncheon was out of the way my friend, Cathy, kept encouraging me to sit and so I could get a good start on ‘my’ banner.

Thanks to Cathy I was able to get just enough of a start to get me excited about finishing it.


This is literally one of my first charms that I made {about 4 years ago}.  It’s  fun to just add them to a project here and there.  My craftsmanship had a long way to go but they make me smile!

Here are a couple of charms that I made yesterday…

Cathy’s birthday is this week so I snuck this picture off of her FB page so I could charm it up for HER!
