Ikebana Attempt

Flower arranging has never been a strength of mine - but I almost always have some flowers in the house. I had some left over orchid stems from a larger arrangement that were still beautiful so I tried a new arrangement.

I do believe the secret to flower arranging is having the right container! We purchase this one years ago at a craft show. It is a beauty.

I have been busy with my paper design again. This week has been heart inspirations. These can be used for either Valentine's Day or wedding centerpieces. I showed my Scandinavian routes with these straight-forward heart designs.

First a wreath.....

Then some trees........

Then combine the two!

The cutting files are available here and
 the tutorials are posted here and here.

A New View.... Drone Photography

Do you remember the 587 foot stonewall I built back in 2008-2011? I photographed it and blogged about it here and here.  Over the holidays my daughter and husband spent some time flying their drone over our home and taking photographs from new angles. I especially loved this one of my stone wall.

I love this photograph and the texture of the trees. The stonewall starts in the lower left, turns right and continues out of the frame in the upper right. It is a long stonewall! If you look carefully you can see the top of our sculpture creation from Sculpture Week 2015. I never blogged about that but it is on my to-do list.
