Romantic Heart

Valentines may be over but the trend at the moment is heart banners that are year round decorations. Since Romance is the theme for Miriam's Crafting Supplies and I entered a heart banner swap I thought a marriage between them was the perfect answer!

Miriam's The Craft Source store (her brick and mortar) has Tim Holtz fabric and Wild Orchid Craft flowers that I ordered and used to create this. The embellishments are from both heronline supplies store and my Gone Artsy store.

Thanks for stopping by today and I appreciate all you wonderful followers new and old!

Love ya,

Romantic and Warm

This month's challenge is all about Romance at Miriam's Crafting Blog. Romance does not have to be all kisses and red hearts. 

a quality or feeling of mystery, excitement, and remoteness from everyday life.

Romance can be an elegant piece of jewelry, it can be a beautiful sunset, or it can be soft and warm like this piece I am sharing today. This infinity scarf would add just a touch of elegance and warmth on a winter day. It can even be doubled up to create a tighter neck area for additional protection on very cold days.

To create this I started by crocheting with a good quality nubby yarn. When I got it to the length I wanted it I looped it and added in 3 loops of Ivory Crochet Ruffle Stretch Lace. I bound it together with another loop of crochet and stitching to make it durable. On top, to add some elegance and romance, I added a Long Stem Rose Metal Embellishment and I embedded a 10mm Pink Flat Back Pearl in the center. That is stitched on as well. It was a fun project and I plan to make more designs available for sale in the Gone Artsy Store.

Speaking of Gone Artsy...I'm having a 20% off sale this week. On top of the everyday 25% off MSRP that's a lot of savings. Everything in the store is marked with only a couple of exceptions so if your interested in some beautiful things, Hop on over and take a look. Sale ends Friday at midnight CST!
