Honeysuckle Breeze:
Marlynn is such a talented artist. She uses a variety of materials to create her one-of-a-kind collages. I especially liked this post of a beautiful piece Marlynn created using found objects, and even one of sentimental value.

 

Diane Knott's Musings:
Diane truly makes the most delightful pincushions and pillows. This post
is a sweet sample of some of her beautiful work.

 

I enjoyed posting these photos of my Studio Haven because it gave me the opportunity to share a small glance into my heart for art. My love for vintage photos and fabrics blended together in harmony is the driving force for my fabric photo collages.

 

Marie French Marie French Guest Curator
I was first influenced by art at a very early age, as my mother is a very creative person and artist in her own right. We grew up in a very creative household. We moved a lot because my father was in the military, so we were creative in our household with everything from meals to Christmas gifts.
