What an amazing project!! I love how you transformed a plain white dress into something so bright and fun and original - you are SO creative!! The "heart on your sleeve" is ingenious!! And of course your purse is gorgeous! Yay for you to be so independent and take a few days all to yourself! I look forward to all of your posts! Have a ball!

Joanne, Lovely work as always. I'm impressed you had the courage to make an altered dress right before you leave for a trip- sounds like you are like me and thrive on time crunches to get your creative juices flowing.

You like to Dye? I need help with dying velvet for a project. Do you think you can help? When you get back of course. Enjoy the trip!


Jo, This is stunning! I want to see photos of yo using it in Italy. Bon Voyage, my dear friend! xoxo


Honestly, you are so amazing, so multi-talented that I gasp! I love your purse and duster -- both are terrific! So creative! Have a glorious time -- I know you will!

Your talents and creativity never cease to amaze me. And I think that Connie is wrong ... if you didn't have other - better - plans, you'd have knocked out at LEAST a dozen of these! ;-) Love that bag too.
