When Life Gives You Yo-Yos...

...Make brooches for a swap.


This one is mine.
I love the color brown and ochre runs a close second.

Not telling whose this is!
This is one of my favorite sentiments
which is why I have a hard time decluttering...
Created for the latest QB5 swap.
I still have to create some dangles
that will keep the brooches company
as they travel far and wide
in their cozy envelopes..

What a great use for these, if you're not doing a quilt. Love the colors of the browns. - J.

Had to come back by. I was the oldest of seven. At the time I was writing about "where I came from" I forgot to count my mother and father. The two youngest were born when the rest of us were teenagers. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. (is there anything better than a comment?)

Hello and nice to meet you! Thanks for popping on by and saying hi. Glad you like the collages - food for thought! Neat idea with the suffolk puffs! Make a brooch...hmmmm...now there's an idea. I see you are a fan of kiwi Carole, too.

I'm not a betting woman but I reckon I know which one's mine, hee hee!
Had a dream I bought vast amounts of stuff from your ETSY last night, what can this mean? doesn't my head know I don't have any money?!! I'll just have a wee look...

What fun! Of course we don't de-clutter - then we wouldn't have any good stuff!
