My Favorite Ta-Dones

My tendency to look at the bad stuff and what my life may be lacking can have me never seeing the good stuff and what I’ve accomplished. So I thought I’d present a pictorial list of some accomplishments that I am truly proud of.

A remembered resume of really rockin’ deeds.

A round-up of ridiculously cool projects I nailed.

And a chance for you to see what you’ve missed or remember what you liked.

I am extremely proud of my redesign of Fiona’s room. There was a week’s worth of projects that I completed and posted. See the final reveal post here and there are links to the room project posts on the bottom. Fiona's second birthday party decorations on Shalavee.com

I endeavored to have it all done by the time we had her second birthday party and I succeeded. I was also pleased with the way her silhouette poster came out and that is now in her room as well. The tissue poms made me happy and allowed me to spend my money on flowers to arrange. See that post here.

First decorated rocking chair for Talbot Humane society on Shalavee.com

In 2014, I was asked to decorate a rocking chair for an auction to benefit the Talbot Humane Society. More pictures of this are here. And then there was this year’s version.The chair for the Talbot Humane Society 2015 on Shalavee.com

This was actually a child’s rocking chair. I wanted to be within the same vein of minimal collage on raw wood with white accents. It was whimsical and just what I was aiming for. See that post here.

Chandelier decorations for the Summer solstice service on Shalavee.com

Finished Floor cloth for summer solstice service on Shalavee.com

I was sooo pleased with how my first attempt at a painted floor cloth went. I had no idea what the heck I was doing but I bought paints and surfed Pinterest and then got to work. It’s still hanging in the hallway of the church four months later. Probably should take it down soon.

Suzani Table Top Design from Shalavee.com

Party design is one of my favorite creative loves. And I had the pleasure of designing party table tops for a dear friend this past Summer. I was inspired by her fabric to make these happy Suzani circles and scattered wild flower filled vases everywhere. See that post here.

And lastly, I was super excited to join a collage challenge a couple of weeks back to practice my “skills” and just randomly make stuff from an inspiration word. The Butterfly Effect, collage by Shalagh on Shalavee.com

I am comfortable with this medium and having a prompt made it easy to make without thinking. This one above is called the Butterfly Effect and was made in maybe a half and hour with 7 different pieces of paper, mostly old maps from a fifty year old “C” encyclopedia.

I don’t think I celebrate my accomplishments as well as I should and I’m truly trying to remedy this. I hope you’ve enjoyed the little visual tour of some of the projects I’ve been most proud of recently. Christmas is coming and that ends up being one of the most creative times for me and there’s be more pretty projects to remember and create. Stay tuned.

    For someone who doesn’t get much accomplished creatively, you sure get some amazingly cool stuff done.
