Guess what! I’m excited to share that Winds of Whimsy has it’s own spot on Aunt Bea’s Attic website! I will share a link where you can find my creations on consignment. Here are some ideas of what is available.

I am incorporating more of their product supplies into my work. I am hooked on IOD- Iron Orchid Designs and Debi’s DIY paint, Paint Couture, and the many many decoupage papers available. They have a nice collection of gifts and handcrafted items. Plus a small boutique with cute women’s and children’s clothing.

Stay tuned, more to come! ❤️

Here’s a fun wreath headed to Locust Hill home. The elf is hand crafted from muslin cloth and craft paints. They are a labor of love. ❤️ 💚

Fall Fairy Door pumpkin

More to come but I am thinking my next project will be an art makeover. I love taking old Home Interior framed art that is past it’s prime and turn it into something completely new and different. This is one that has been sitting in my basement for a couple of years waiting for the right time. I picked it up at Goodwill for a whole $3.

The Fairy Merry Christmas IOD Transfer is soooo cute and I can’t wait to use it on some projects. My thought is to also incorporate the new IOD stamp, Winter Adornment in the background of this wreath. One of these sweet fairy’s will sit in the center of the wreath too. Debating if I keep the green outer mat as is and just lose the pink/burgundy picture? It will become more clear once I have a solid background to work off of. Layers and texture…that’s my vibe.

Stay tuned!

I have had a blast putting this pumpkin project together the last week. It is from a class called Elegant Pumpkins and Toadstools by Old to Ooh La La using IOD mounds. I also used DIY paint and Golden Ticket patina for the golden sparkle. I had to improvise a bit since my background was a bit larger but I am super happy with how it has turned out. I purchase IOD products at a gem of a shop in little West Salem Ohio called Aunt Bea’s Attic.

This dresser has been up for grabs across the street from me for a week! I can’t see it go into the burn pile. This will be a great project to play with decoupage and IOD moulds on! Stay tuned.

Fall crafting is complete! Here is a snippet of one of my projects for this season using a vintage embroidered tablecloth that has been sitting my the basement for longer than I care to admit. It had some stains but was perfect to piece out and create some simple pumpkins.

I discovered this year that k***s and hardware make fun pumpkin stems. Maybe you have some vintage finds or you can visit the Hobby Lobby hardware aisle like me.

More whims to come soon. Stay tuned.
