Alright, Here is the "Fancy Plans" I spoke of in my Coffee Filter Cakes Post. Thanks to the Special Issue of Stampington's Marie Magazine which I 'm sure is going to inspire us all to add a little Marie flare to our lives. I'm declaring April Marie Month on my Blog!
So here's how it will go...
I will announce a Fancy Fan and Trim Tags giveaway on the 15th. I will announce the Winner of the giveaway on the 20th.
A SOIREE!!!~~~~ Marie Inspired Decorated Shoe. The challenge will be to go to your favorite Thrift Store, Antique Mall, Flea Market, or use one you already have. and find a pretty & cheap! pair of shoes with nice form and a good base. or use one you already have. Then you will bring them home and lovely them up in a style that Marie would have loved!
Then on April 30 we will all Make our Posts on our Blogs showing our beautiful Shoe Creations! Doesn't that sound like fun?!
Please let me know if you intend to join by leaving me a comment. I will add you to my sidebar for the event so we can all come visit eachother on the big day!
So if this sounds like something you might want to do, add this image to your sidebar and invite some friends. Can't wait to see all of your genius Artist ideas!
I will be adding many Marie products to my Etsy shop this month..Here are some you can find there now...
In addition to all the events listed above I have teamed up with Indygo Junction & The Vintage Workshop to bring you a Fancy new Project each week in April. These projects will include Earring Cards, Hanger covers, Toddler Marie Dresses made with an Indygo junction pattern and Wallpaper envelopes embellished with Vintage Workshop Images.....And many more!
