Windy sunday



I made these yesterday. I see many lovely things online that cost a lot of money like the brooch made of velvet ribbon, old lace and bauble below (I made this one after I saw similar ones at prices that made my jaw drop!). So when something appeals to me, I try it out for myself. If'n'when I put these up, they will be priced very reasonably. I believe in paying for the work, not the "name". I have this theory, that if people (are you listening big business??) took a little less, oh, say a yearly bonus of $2 million instead of $3.5 million, we could all have more. Especially of the important things necessary not just to survival but good survival.

  6. The brooches are lovely, Colette! I have been enjoying going through your blog- you are so creative!
    We go to craft shows just for the ideas mainly as things even at the local level are so expensive these days. We will indulge if it's something so absolutely creative that you have to reward, so to speak, the creator, but everyone can be creative in their own way!
    I just heard a CEO got a $56 million or so bonus from his company- ridiculous! The planet needs help, people are starving, babies are dying- it's so wrong...
