First, let me back up and explain. For those of you who are new to reading my blog, my oldest daughter attends a unique Christian school that is a hybrid of classroom teaching and homeschooling. The kids go to school 3 days a week and are home schooled two days a week. This community of parents and teachers work together to teach our kids both biblically and academically. It truly is awesome.
So two times a year, the school holds two fund raising events. A golf tournament in the fall and a gala in the spring. The gala is super fun and we hold a silent auction where local businesses donate tons of gift certificates, products, and baskets. Part of my contribution is to make several things that can be auctioned.
So this is my first COMPLETED (all others are "in process") item...these pretty napkin rings!
paper and button flowers. I decided to make 6 since it is rare to find that many in a set. I know there is only 4 in the pic but I made 6. Honest to goodness. Each flower has a different button sewn in the middle and I love how it makes each one a little unique.
Again, I am addicted to texture so I am loving all the contrast of rustic twine with the sheer, feminine flowers. LOOOOOOVE it. Is that OK to say about your own creation? But I do love it.
I am also working on some art pieces that I am pretty excited to share with you. Nervous...but excited. :)
