I just want to create pretty things. by Rita Newmeyer

Sometimes I just need to keep busy with something creative. I have what I lovinlingly refer to as creative ADD. I am always in the middle of about 20 or so creative projects and I go back to them every so often. 

This is my current project: 


Now, I have not embroidered since I was about 12 and all I knew how to do was cross stitch. So this was a pretty big project to jump into.  

But, that’s how I work. I decide I am going to learn a new creative outlet and I just jump. I love emercing myself into something new and the challenge of learning a new craft!  

I have no idea how long it will actually take me or if I will even ever finish it, but I just want to make it for the sake of creating it.  

What do you do to keep your creative brain busy?  

Tea. by Rita Newmeyer

I love doing DIY projects and this one is by far one of my favorites. Hand me some tea and I will stain everything in site! I love the look that it can give old lace, tulle or even just a simple white piece of fabric. I plan on tea staining many things to be featured in my portraiture!
