Just a Little Inspiration

I've been working simultaneously on three different projects (yes, my house is a disaster zone), but it feels so good to get in the groove and get things done. Here is the last of my Old World plaster projects, which I finished last night. I call them desktop blocks and sell them in my shop. They are made from scraps of wood we had in our garage. 

I love using these little blocks to try out new techniques and colors. These three have a color wash of gray over the plaster, which gives them a dreamy quality.


So, what else have I been working on? Well, here are some hints...

I have seen so many dragonflies in my garden this year so I love the block with the dragronfly! Does the "t" on the knob stand for "tease" because that's what you've done. Can't wait to see the project that it's attached to!!!

This is so awesome! I found it through Craft Gawker (That place is too addictive!). I pinned it - let me know if that is not ok. Your newest follower,
