Scallop Headbands and Bursting with Ideas

I have been positively blooming with ideas lately! Which is nice, considering I was in quite the imagination-rut recently. For someone whose major enjoyment comes from writing poetry and creating things, when there's nothin' goin' on upstairs and that goes on for a while, I become a pretty miserable lady! But I made some headbands at the end of last week that I really like--that's them up above there. And also, a pretty Victorian-esque cuff that's made out of some jersey remnants from Salaam in Montpelier, VT. Plus a few little felted bits, some beads, some embroidery, and a trim remnant.

Yesterday it was all new yellows and greens on Frost, but today it's multi-color and bright (those headbands were new yesterday)! I am a total sucker for color even though I typically wear black and season with colorful accessories. In fact, that should be a post sometime-- "what to wear with your all-black wardrobe!" But it's getting warm up here in the Northeast and I am ready for raspberries and lime greens, aquas and oranges! I expect there will be a whole lot of color going on in the future for Atelier Frost on Etsy.

My ideas involve embroidered collars, patchwork scarves, and maybe even some garments!!! Up to this point I have only ever made clothing for myself, but I've been wanting to do some embellishment and reconstruction (and deconstruction) and even some making-from-scratch! So we'll see what comes of that. I'll be sure to keep you posted! Ideas are a balm for the soul!

Hi there Cyndle! Katie McIntire here, just thought I'd drop you a note to say hi. I've been following your blog for a little while now, and have enjoyed seeing all the creative projects you have been working on. Very inspiring! I would really enjoy an online (or in person) chat sometime on all things fiber, crafts, creative inspiration, and Etsy. Are you on Facebook? ~K

Hi Katie!!! :) I only really use Facebook to keep in touch with one or two people, but I would love to have a chat with you! It's so nice to hear from you! Are you thinking about opening a shop on Etsy (or do you already have one)? We could definitely hang out sometime too--I'm home with Sage every day, other than the occasional appointment!

Hopefully this will take you to my Facebook:!/profile.php?id=100001006572686&ref=profile

These headbands are super-duper beautiful! I am glad to hear that Sage's surgery went well. Thinking of your little family! Big hugs!
