A New Game to Play!

These Three Things....

Ok, this will be a really fun one!!
This kit , which is actually an inspiration pa
ckage and I will offer a different one every month, is called "These Three Things".
Just three elements, which will usually be vintage , or not easily found fun type treasures .
Then, you add absolutely anything at all (new or old) to these three elements to create your own work of art. Add as much or as little as you want to your creation.
Is it jewel
A wall hanging?

Something sewn, beaded,painted,soldered,glued ,died,tied ... I have know idea , but can't wait to find out.
Then the whole following mon
th we will post pictures of our creations on the Flickr group to see what everyone came up with.I love to create , but sometimes get a little block and need to work with something different....

So let's Create Just to Create!
~Not because you have to mak
e inventory for your
lane ,
make mine pin

(I sincerely apologize for any of our completely wonderful shops that I have left out but you get my drift. )
Not because you need to make a gift,
are in charge of school craft project
make a deadline,
design a Ju

Just because it got your creative juices going and was a lot of fun!

Now , if you decide to put your fabulous creation in your wonderful shop, or the June wedding, that' great too! (Mark one off your to do list)
Make a teachers gift : ) ( oops,I forgot
it was that time of year too!)

This inspiration pack will include:

~Vintage salvage german doll (these are from 1890s era and each one is slightly different)
~1920's vintage millinery velv
et cream flower

Marie Canvas Book
ion Kit

The Marie Canvas book inspiration kit comes with oodles of vintage elements including antique lace, beads, 1920s millinery. The binding for your book is actually from a wonderful early vintage flour sac , and the inside covers are from 1930s wallpaper as shown. Due to the vintage elements included in each project, the kits offered on Creer Avec Moi will be very limited. Once I have used up my supply of a vintage element included in each project , that will determine the number of kits I am able to offer you.
