While in NYC, my husband and I were inspired by some artwork we found in Chelsea Market by Ashleigh Verrier. We absolutely loved her work and found that you can purchase it through her site called Verrier Handcrafted. I highly recommend you take a look! We thought for a fun art night at home, we would use her work to inspire us to create our own pieces. I produced the perfume bottle and books/purse and he produced the lady in the dress. I think they turned our really fun!
Today I learned a new skill thanks to a fantastic teacher via a youtube video, Gretchen Hirsch. She gave fantastic step-by-step instructions on how to sew these cute little clutch pouches. She is very lively and skilled at sewing and gives great explanations while doing each step. I am a beginner when it comes to sewing and I realized that doing these make-up pouches, which seemed intimidating at first, was quite doable with a great teacher along your side. So, I would like to say thank you to her and encourage anyone to challenge yourself and explore a new skill or talent!
Do you have a place to feel pretty? It may be fancy or not so much, but how fun is it to create a place to feel pretty? I remember as younger girl loving watching my mom sit and do her makeup in her space. It was simple, but it was her go-to place to get ready and so it was special to me. Now I have a place of my own for my daughters to admire. I love this pic because you can see the cross-stitched picture of a couple holding hands that my grandmother made for us for our wedding.
