Welcome to White Wednesday


Add Video"Where Women Create " Comes to Vintage Living on White Wednesday

hosted by Kathleen of Faded Charm...fabulous whites are waiting to be seen, check out her blog.








Today I am in the shop - just as I have been for 2 weeks literally night and day. I have been working on sprucing up the shop and my 2 studios. I have been getting ready for a photo shoot... I received an email from Jo Packham editor of Somerset Publications "Where Women Create" that she had been looking for someone in the Chicago area and that I was recommended to her by the wonderful KC Willis. She checked out my blog and wanted to come and shoot it for the magazine. All I have to say is what a lovely fun bunch of gals from the magazine...Dana the photographer is fantastic and such a sweetie and JO and Gina love you guys! I will keep you posted on when I will be featured and all the details!
Here are some of my projects that I put together...at 1am this week.














Lamp shades I made this week... they are pieced together with lace and fabric. I transferred pictures onto silk and stitched them onto the shades.





























I hope you have a wonderful white day...
Blessings
Rebecca

You so deserve to be in this publication. Congratulations!!!! Your talents and hard work are going to finally get the recognition it deserves. I can't wait to see it in print!
