I was inspired to make this photo star as a thank you to the wonderful folks at The Stitching Elmers. The Stitching Elmers is a marvellous place, from where I buy a lot of my buttons, ribbons and charm embellishments.
I would have never thought of how to decorate this star without seeing what was out there to spark my imagination. I feel more creative when I browse in person, and I just feel better being out in the world connecting with such a passionate, friendly and creative community.
If I can achieve one thing with this website and my workshops, it is to encourage people to buy locally and feel incredibly uplifted by doing so.
