Crafty Weekend Recap (and Giveaway Winner Announced!)

Here in the U.S. it was a long weekend, so I took a vacation day on Friday and turned it into a four-day-craft-extravaganza! It was bliss.  I felt like I was bursting with creative energy, I was totally excited to get up each day.

There was raspberry-blueberry-almond-cake-baking:

Much circle-cutting for fabric-flower-making:

A new adventure in card-making (swoon, new obsession), and the aforementioned flower-sewing:

Painting for the Spill It! Workshop I am taking online with Carmen Torbus (a post about this is coming soon):

A couple of other little (unfinished) friends I am working on:

Two Etsy sales!  Yay!!  Here they are packaged up for mailing:

And a winner of the necklace giveaway!  Congratulations Jenny :)


  1. I am so thrilled to have been chosen!!! Thank you so much Averil, I love your jewelry and I will proudly wear my necklace! Looks like you had an awesome weekend, the cake looks sooo yummy! I love the saturated color in your lean in painting, very pretty. Hope you're having a happy day!

  2. what a wonderfully creative 4 days!

  3. Wow! That's what I call a great weekend! I love when I have those super woman days when I can feed my spirit and my family too!

  4. I like your paintings.

    I read over your posts, and noted
    your feelings about the jewelry you make.
    Then forget it.
    Besides, a zillion people are putting together stuff like that.

    But your paintings.

    You're paintings have charm.

    I like them.
