Summer's Over.....

Yes summer is over, and so is fall, 
so I spent this snowy day remembering some places
I enjoyed this summer..... 

Oh what fun we had!!!
My plan is to share some creative things in a few days....

In case you are wondering what I have been up to.....
I have been spending time doing two of my favourite things....

 wandering in nature

and spending time with this girl. 

How lucky I am!

Yukon Flora Jewelry

My summertime jewelry has been a long time coming,
but I finally finished a few pieces. 

I collected leaves from wild plants growing in the area, and then
used them as stamps to decorate pieces of reclaimed metal. 

1st pair - stamped with Willow leaves
2nd pair - stamped with leaves from Jacob's Ladder
3rd pair - stamped from Yarrow leaves

I then displayed them on cards that included 
the name of the plant I used for stamping. 

I also made a few long necklaces....

...and still have a number of stamped metal pieces ready to make more jewelry. 

But, today I was happy to be able to take these pieces to
 Acacia Vintage  - a lovely little local shop that sells a few of my creations.

Grafted Collages

I continue gluing together bits of decorated paper to make these collages.
Here you can see the small 3X4 inch creations I shared on my last post,
beside the 6X6 inch creation I have just finished. 

I mounted these collages on wooden box frames 
that can be hung on a wall or displayed on a shelf. 

And here is the finished pile. 
I wonder where my creative muse will take me next......
