Today is Rush day at the new "Bloggerete Sorority" ....

I've joined my first sorority ...



Karen, from the blog "Some Days are Diamonds" has come up with a fantastic blog party idea ... a bloggerette sisterhood !! And today we are being rushed .. relax ... it's all on the up and up, fun, and open to EVERYONE!! We rushees were presented with a challenge ... to take this photograph {below} and create anything we wanted to out of it ... okay that was the EASY part ...

Here's my almost finished project .... a vintage wooden basket purse ... painted and embellished with the photograph {altered slightly in Photoshop} ... some antique buttons, vintage lace, and a silk flower ... a little paint and viola ... done! oh right, almost done ... I still want to fix up the inside!



Like I said ... that was the easy part of being rushed ... the hardest part ... you HAD TO post a picture of yourself with your project ... yikes! I hate this part ... does anyone else feel the same way? ... I do not like my picture taken ; (

This was after a long, long day trip to the Renniger's Extraviganza Flea market road trip ... hot, sweaty, and tired!!

That's it ladies or sisters ... I'll be around this weekend to check in on all of my other sorority sisters and see what they came up with ... this weekend is full of blog hopping, I'm still in the mist of looking at everyone's creative spaces!




Have a wonderful weekend!...and thanks for all of the fun Karen!!

  21. Hi Jill, WOW!!!! You are brilliant, I love your sweet basket and the pic of you holding it is beautiful. I was a bad girl and didn't include a pic, I think I read the post wrong as I thought we were to incorporate our pic in what we made and that would have really ruined the whole project for me...hehehe..
