Memory Canvas

Eliza is our oldest and this year she left for boarding school.  Making something for her when she was at home all the time was tricky to hide, so she didn't get to take it with her.  Now that it's done, I'm excited about posting it as I know she LOVES to receive mail !!   I'm really happy with the result.  HOPE she is too!!!

Memory Collage for Eliza ♥

parts of the girls' hats from when they were little, a family photo on fabric and our old dog Disco who died last year ... 


parts of the boy's hats when they were little... some of her favourite fabrics and an inspirational quote ...

... I incorporated a piece of fabric from her old shorts ... old t shirt ... a piece of music fabric and a photo transfer of the kids from when they were really little !

Vintage handkerchief with her initial ♥

say HELLO to February ...

So, how's your new year going?  I've managed to pull myself together now that our oldest is away at boarding school ... possibly the most difficult thing I have had to do (besides homeschooling) ...  She's settling in really well and I've been more upset than she has, but I'm getting better every day!

We've still got 3 littlies here doing homeschooling, so life's never dull and I'm so grateful for our lovely governess who's teaching this year.  I've decided to cut back a bit and am only doing 2 hrs a day in the hope that I can get my office work done and possibly more art on the side!

Here's some of what I've been up to as well as some pretty things I've been finding on Pinterest...  enjoy!
