my new etsy shop

Wheeew, I finally did it ...with the help of Karen Valentine setting beside me for hours. She made me take notes (thank heavens) and do it several times. What am I talking about???? my etsy store called Vondas Handmade Things. Today I added three more things all by myself YEAH so for fun go to my etsy store and have a look. She also created my banner..love you Karen. Tomorrow, after class, we set up my Ebay shop.
Stay tuned for some big announcements I am about to make. I am so excited to share them with. In the meantime.

Kiss and Love, Vonda

wedding invatation

I got a wedding invatation in  the mail two weeks ago. In thinking of what to give as a wedding present I came up with this idea. thought I would share it with you. I used one of my flower garland prints..Flower and Garland Mes Petets Bouquet #1 I have for sale. I had to enlarge the flower garland print to accommodate the size of the  invatation .I used three prints, cutting out pieces of the two prints, in a style we call elevations .I bought a shadow box at Hobby Lobby that had a beige fabric in the inside. I glued the invatation to the bottom inside and then glued the elevation flower garland around it. To finish it off I added faux French ribbon around the edge of the shadow box. To save you time and money you can simply cut out the wreath and use around the invatation.
