Hello and thank you for visiting! My name is Susan Van Horn and I am the artist behind My Sweet Imaginations! I am also the wife of a neuroscientist, the mother of two beautiful and talented girls, and a craft enthusiast!
little work in progress is not all me. First, a sweet and talented
fellow crafter has agreed to make me something adorable to use for the
project. As a matter of fact, the whole project is her creative and
wonderful idea (and I will show you her's soon!). The first step was
to pick out two sets of fabrics. Now this photo is going to make me
look all seamstress talented, isn't it? I'm not. My mom bought me the
cutting mat, ruler, and cutting rolling scissor thingy. And I still
can't cut a straight line! I cut them a little bigger than asked,
just in case! Aren't these pretty together?
In the "studio" today I am working on some new tooth fairy
boxes. I've received loads of lovely comments through my eBay
auction, so am motivated to make more! I need lots to keep me busy
while eagerly anticipating our move as I don't get to pack or any of
that fun stuff (not!) before we move in to the new apartment. I can't
m still here. My mom has alerted me yet again that I am a bad
blogger! I've just been busy off the computer and off the easel! What
have I been doing? Cleaning, purging, shopping (growing
children....updating me!), yoga, power walks, reading about nutrition
and shopaholics, and doing pretty much anything but working! I needed
I also finished my very last custom...at least my very last for a
long time. Customs always slow me down and stress me out, so I am
going to stop doing them and focus on all these other ideas floating
about in my head! I'm excited to get started!
Oh, I also had a death, a heart issue, sick kids, and all that other
crud that comes with life. But we deal. The death was my 99 year old
grandmother...that's pretty amazing to live to 99, eh? The heart
appears to be fine (mine...probably over did the jogging!) and the sick
kids are well (for now). The other crud isn't worth mentioning (you
know, like broken toilet flusher thingies!).
I will try to be a better blogger. At least I know my mom is still checking in to see what I write! (Hi, Mom!)
