A Few Creations and a Moving Break

I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA. We’re in the middle of moving and I have been busy packing up everything. The studio took me the longest time. Who would have thought, lol. So this is just a quick post to show you a few gifts I made before all the hustle and bustle had started.

The images I’ve used for the inside of the tin and for the fabric collage had been provided by THE GRAPHICS FAIRY. Thank you, Karen!

I’ll be off for the next couple of weeks. I guess I’ll see you in May again. Until then have a wonderful and creative time!

Huhu meine liebe Julia,

Du bist ja noch da. Ich dachte Du bist schon weg.
Ich wünsche Dir alles Liebe und pass gut auf dich auf ok ??
Deine Werke sind mal wieder einfach traumhaft schööön.
Mir fehlen die Worte.

Bitte melde Dich, wenn Du angekommen bist. Bis dahin ganz liebe Grüße und *winke*

Hello Julia
I was starting to wonder if everything was okay in your life but of course, a move is so time and energy consuming.
Beautiful creations you shared with us today. We certainly miss you when you are MIA lol.
Take care and I will be awaiting your return.

Angela Richardson said...

Best of luck with your move Julia.
I've moved several times over the last few years and have one more move to make at the end of April.
Gets rid of all the clutter though!!
Love your makes.
Hugs, Angela.

I have been thinking of you and was going to email you this weekend and here you are!! Everything is just so lovely, Julia, but I especially ♥ the bits and bobs box filled with little treasures!!!

LOL, I cringe thinking of one day having to pack up my creative space! It'll take me WEEKS!!!


Rostrose said...

Liebstige Julia, so schön, dass du dich auch hier noch einmal meldest, und zwar mit solchen Hübscheiten. Deine Geschenke sind wieder einmal traumhaft!!!
Ich wünsch dir bzw. euch eine möglichst stress-arme Übersiedlung in euer neues Zuhause!
Auf Wiederlesen im Mai! Küschler und Büschler an dich und den lieben Cecil, der hoffentlich seine süßen fransigen Öhrchens steif hält :o)
Herzlichst, Traude

Beautiful and inspiring Julia.
I hope that your move goes well and that you are all settled in with your studio ready for action next time we hear from you.

Rhonda said...

I was thinking about you just this week, Julia. I have been so busy and I thought I had not see a post from you in a while. I'm so glad you posted today. Those studios take the longest to set up, don't they?

Your art is so beautiful. I cannot wait until May. See you then. xo Rhonda

Oh My Sweet Julia
I can't thank you enough for showering me with all of these beautiful gifts (except the cards) you so generously sent me.
They look so beautifully photographed here on your blog!
I have been thinking of you so much with all the packing and thought that you must have finished and would now be on your way.
Look after yourself and don't forget to get some rest in between! You have so much to do when you arrive at the other end!!!
Love and big hugs sweetie,
Hope to hear more soon!
Suzy xxxx

Carole said...

I have been thinking of you getting ready for the big move. It's a daunting task but I know an exciting one too. What adventures you will have and I'm anxious to hear about it all.
You are so sweet to whip up some lovely gifts before you go. I love the lace in the flower shape you created. Funny how I was drawn to that:)

Have a safe trip!!!


Cassie said...

these are all so pretty! i can't wait till you return!

Unknown said...

I LOVE these!!! I cant help drooling over any lace and your stuff is just to die for! :D


Lululiz said...

Oh sind das tolle Teile, wunderschoen, jedes einzelne Stueck ein wahres Meisterwerk. I really really admire your creations.

Jillayne said...

I hope your move goes well and you are settled into your new studio in no time.
I will miss all your lovely posting you do but look forward to your return in May... enjoy feathering your new nest!

Shane Pollard said...

Oh my!!!
Such exquisite gifts you've made Julia.
I love everything you do, they are so feminine and with beautiful laces and images!
I always mean to have a day making a stash to have on hand as well, to send my blogging friends who are always so generous.

I don't envy you moving - if only it could just happen magically overnight... -
... maybe we could wave our magic wands for the "MOVING FAIRIES" to take over the whole operation!!!!

Hallo Julia,
huch...ihr zieht um? Hab´ ich garnicht mitbekommen. So ein Umzug ist ja schon ein ganz schöner Kraftakt...aber auch aufregend....alles mal wieder neu und anders. Ich wünsche Dir, dass Alles gut über die Bühne geht..... ohne Streß.
Deine Kreationen sind....wie immer...traumhaft!! Besonders das letzte Teil....konnte nicht erkennen ob es ein tag oder ein journal ist....hat es mir angetan.

Alles Gute für den Umzug und ganz liebe Grüße,

Marge said...

Dear friend,

I was wondering, where are you:)
But now I understand:) I wish all good to your move!!♥
I love these awesome handworks, they are just so nostalgie, which I like so much!:)

I send you many warmy hugs,

Lynn Stevens said...

Lily's Lace said...

My dear Julia I thought of you while I was at the biggest flea market in Round Top Texas. There was lace everywhere, antique buttons and paris papers. Maybe you have something like that where you are but I think you would have had so much fun there. Of coarse it was so hot I thought I would have to find a fainting couch!!

When ever I need inspiration, I just come to your blog, you never let me down! Many lacy dreams to you! xox-cindy

AppleApricot Wen said...

Dear Julia, this is all so lovely and beautiful. I adore your altered tin and am in awe by your lace collage, so beautiful. I saw Dorthe's blogpost on what you had sent her and just had to come over to your blog to leave a comment and see more of your stunning work. You, like Dorthe, inspire me. Thank you. Have a lovely day, hugs, Wendy

LauraO said...

Beautiful, beautiful work. Good luck with your move.

Lisa said...

I miss you girl! Sorry I've been away for so long but I just caught up on your posts. So much eye candy! First of all, where are you moving to? Are you relocating for husbands job? I hope you will be together more & not so much going back & forth. I saw the beautiful gifts you gave Dorthe on her blog. You are so talented. I need to go see Paula's shop. Hope you are having good weather.

Beautiful Julia...

Lisa said...

Hi Old Friend!
What beautiful things I've seen on your blog tonight. I had to back-track to Valentines day. Your workmanship on those hearts is perfect. I have such a hard time with hearts. Even tho I trim at the inside point they still pucker. Yours are so beautiful. Good luck with the move Julia & if you have time email your new address.

Ioana-Carmen said...

Amazing blog! Would you like to follow each other? ;X

Rosa C. said...

It's just a coincidence that I find your beautiful blog. What a happy surprise. Everything is so beautiful. I would like to put you with the links on my blog. Is that allright?

Just found my way here via Pinterest (of course!) and I find your creations to be very pretty and inspiring. It's "artists" like you who make me want to take a dip or two in the creatve pool. Thanks for sharing your talent with me! - BeeJay
