brown eyed fox

I found this blog today............brown eyed fox............I was instantly attracted to the banner. Then the rest of the design..........hmmmm, I wonder why.......We'll get back to that.

Then I saw these stockings! The colors bursting in my brain, wishing I had Christmas Stockings in those colors. So hip, so fresh, so cute!

At first I thought "oh she sews cute things on t-shirts, like that one.....she claims to have whipped it up from a few of her scraps....(i secretly hate women like that)........then I quickly realized that Carissa, brown eyed fox is a very very artsy girl. So effortless. You all know by now that I don't sew. I wish I could sew. And if I could, I would be doing cute wonderful things like that t-shirt. But mine would have sweat marks on not on the underarms.......that's gross......but drips from my forehead while I tried to create such a masterpiece..........still gross? Sorry.....

Then I saw this. THIS! Isn't this the most perfect piece of art? I squealed with delight when I saw this. Not because it's something I could do with minimal sweat, but it's so perfect for my photo wall. Perfect for documenting a families moment in time. I love it! I must copy.
Carissa is also a mixed media artist. She sells some really original, creative and interesting pieces in her Etsy shop, things you can hang, wear or stick. Carissa has a whimsical spirit.........She's a girl with a song in her heart.

Speaking of her heart........Love the frame, the aged look, the colors.
She also paints these cool signs. So authentic. Like it's been aged to perfection hanging outside the families cabin for the past 50 yrs. This would be perfect for a friend of mine........her last name is White.
And why do I love her site design so much............I realized that Shawn designed it. Shawn designed mine too! Small blog world.
So off you must go, to get your creative soul tickled by the frown eyed fox.

Wow Kim... thank you soooooo much! You're the best!

I sooooo appreciate all your nice comments! I feel like a star!

Thank you SO MUCH!

p.s. Girl... I don't know how to sew either. I wish I did! The t-shirt was made from fusible fabric scraps! They are the best... and really great for those of us who are "sewing challenged"!

Big bright smiles to you! LOL!
