She Wore a Bee Hive for a Hat

, I first want to thank all of you who wished me a happy, happy birthday! The last few days have been a treat and it is nice to have such a wonderfully community of friendly bloggers! Thank you all!

I also want to thank those of you who participated in my giveaway, which was so much fun to have and participate in myself! I am excited to say that I was lucky enough to be a winner in two giveaways and will be blogging about them very soon (... as well as a very special birthday surprise for both me and my grandmother, by another wonderful blogger!)

In the meantime, I just want to share with you all of the fun I have been having lately. I am working on a collection of lovely ladies with fabulous hats and here is the beginning pencil work of my first lady: She Wore a Bee Hive for a Hat.

I can't wait to begin working on her background! I have been treating myself to some wonderful birthday presents and can't wait to get to work on my collages! Here is a peek at what is in store for my future pictures, including this little bee hived lady:

I have never worked with rubber stamps before (well, at least since elementary school or just playing around with Gracie and some kiddie stamps) but am so impressed with how beautiful they are! I have been practicing and am currently rubbish, but I cant wait to master the whole messy ink thing and end up with some beautiful layered stamp collaged backgrounds!

I bought these (and more little goodies that you will just have to wait and see) from RhondaMum and am so excited to use them!! Her shop is just full of vintage paper goodies as well as some beautiful tags and wall hangings she has created from her vintage stash. So lovely!

I bought these labels, some from Covetable Curiosities and some from Art-e-ology, and just have to say that they are all FABULOUS! I am such a vintage paper addict!

And last, from Artsy, here is a handful of lovely vintage stamps... these will be fun to work with!

And for those of you who have been wondering what ever happened with my nursery pictures... well here is Little Miss Muffet, all finished up and looking quite startled! I don't blame her of course. That spider is quite intimidating! She will be off to the print shop and in Elegant Snobbery soon! As for Bo Peep and Jack Horner, well they are still being colored in.

Busy busy! But having too much fun to stop and take a break!!
