Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

a little sea shell and tell

for christmas gifts for friends, near and far, wedding gift/first christmas gifts for 3 newlywed couples, and hostess gifts she did not sell sea shells but she glittered them all sparrrrrklyyy.

steph and i saw a martha stewart episode on ombre glittering shells and knew we had to do this ourselves.

i learned how to ombre, and i also learned that you are not going to make a hole in a sea shell very quickly if you have the drill spinning in reverse.













i just realized going through the pics i had not played show and tell with these luvlies. 

with this said and done this arty girl is off to take her perimenopause enhanced pms off to find something salty and something sweet to medicate herself with. 

bunches of love to you,

mwah.
