Bring some beautiful color to your days!
The stained glass effect of the paper will glow in a sunny window!
Ann makes the stars by hand-folding small squares of paper, overlaying the folded paper, and then gluing them together to create different patterns.
Each point on the star is folded 19 times. With 8 points on the star, that's 152 folds!
The star measures approximately 9 inches in diameter.
This beautiful heart-shaped window impression is made from hand-poured beeswax. The smell is both delightful and comforting; and retains the smell of honey!
The impression can be hung in a window year-round so the sun can shine through it,gently warm it, and release its scent. It also makes a pretty addition to a potpourri dish.
The heart has a border of flowers around the outside with two doves in the center. The birds are holding a ribbon between their feet. It is a gentle image...perfect for a home, nursery, or classroom.
The impression measures 5.75 inches in length,
5 inches in width, and 7.5 inches in hanging length with a pale pink ribbon
(or 12 cm in length, 12.5 cm in width, and 18.5 cm in hanging length).
Ann makes perfect "Greeting/Note Cards"
and they are even UPCYCLED!
The cards measure 5.25 inches x 7.25 inches, and are made from premium quality, archival white cardstock that is acid and lignin free. The inside of the card is blank so you may write a personal message in it.

…A Note from Ann…

My approach to homeschooling is rather eclectic -
I have always enjoyed crafting – especially embroidery,
Because both my daughters love to play and use their imagination,
Knowing they have quality, safe (and lead-free) toys and quilts is important.
Because the girls learn at home, I enjoy decorating the windows
I also love photography, and have some of my photos at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/picturesbyann/ .
