From time to time I have customers send me photos of the things that they have made from my patterns. They also send pictures of their own projects and designs. I love to see these things because it is always inspiring not only to see how they may have changed or modified my designs, but their own creations too.
Since I am still finishing up painting on my mask project, I thought today would be a good opportunity to share some of these pictures with you. Maybe it will give you an idea or two for how you can apply them to your own projects that you are working on and make your own variations.
The first picture is from Lyman Hannah:
Lyman did a beautiful job on my SLD407 Elegant Slotted Ornaments
Edward Orr made this plaque that Keith designed:
I really like the blue he used for the Gone Fishing plaque!
Jeffery Oliver sent a picture of the Seashell Candle Tray that he made.
I loved that he put a rhinestone in each of the shells! Just a little bit of sparkle really makes this project look great!
Barbara Raymond sent her version of Keith’s Let it Snow overlay plaque:
I love it and I think she did a great job with the painting, too!
And Kevin Colf sent this picture of how he modified Keiths’ SLDK147 Heart Votive and Candle Tray pattern.
He redesigned the pattern to make one heart and bevel cut the center to make it into a really nice candy dish. What a great idea for Valentine’s day or an anniversary!
And finally, last week I received these beautiful earrings from Jerry Mc Guire:
They are not from my designs, but Jerry designed them himself. I LOVE the beautiful natural colors of the wood and they are very small and intricately done and not at all heavy. I thought it was so thoughtful for Jerry to send me these sets and I really appreciate it a lot!
I hope you enjoy seeing these. I know I am bad and don’t always get to posting the pictures that are sent to me, but I am going to make more of an effort to do so. I love seeing how creative people are with my designs and it really inspires me knowing that what I am doing is appreciated.
Thank you so much to all of you who take the time to send me pictures of your work. I really love seeing your projects and not only does it make me feel like people appreciate the designs I make, but it inspires me to make more. I have the best customers ever! :)
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
