Thank you all for the thoughts, prayers and well wishes for my sister, I really appreciated it. Sorry to say she lost her battle and passed away Aug. 31st. She was more then just a sister to me, she was a second mom, sister and a great friend! I think we are all still in shock and trying to deal with it. She was a very special lady and will be missed by all!! After two deaths in the family less then two weeks a part, I have been emotionally drained. I'm getting better and I'm sure it is just going to take time.

Before all this happened I had signed up for a ATB swap on All Things Tim yahoo group, luckily I had started it awhile ago and managed to get it put together and in the mail before everything got real bad. I was inspired by Linda Ledbetter for the embossed dress form and spools, so tryed my hand at it and I really liked the results!! Thank you Linda!!
I embossed the dress form stamp on grunge board, the flower is a prima flower dipped in utee and the flourish I first inked with peeled paint and then covered it with peeled paint stickles. I used Tim Holtz paper and embellishments. The needle was a blue plastic needle and I colored it with Adirondack alcohol ink mixatives silver, it doesn't show to well in the pic but it worked great! Now seeing these pics I wish I would have also stamped on the back of the little sign!! Next time!! lol




So hope to get back to some creativeness here in the near future and get back to normal a little! Thanks again everyone!
Have a good one!


  1. oh Donna, this is fabulous! So sorry to hear of your losses. It is so hard and especially multiple. I lost my brother and my father 3 weeks apart a few years back and it was just such a blur and roller-coaster for a while there. You are numb and just going through the motions. Time heals but it is still hard and I miss them dearly as I am sure you do. Hang in there girl. I'll say a prayer for you and your family.

  2. Such a wonderful and unique piece. I'm so sorry to hear of your losses. Hoping you will comfort in memories. I know there are no words good enough but I'm thinking of you.

  3. So sorry to hear of your loss, Donna! Such a difficult time for your family! On a lighter note, well done with the ATB, it looks fabbilicious!
