Mix it Monthly

Hi, Happy New Year to all.   Conny over at Mix it Monthly has chosen Odd Hats for the challenge this month.  Its just what I needed as my brain is on a go slow at the moment and inspiration is thin on the ground.

Leading in the fashion stakes we have Olivia the Ostrich  desporting her latest headwear made of orange felt and white fresh flowers.............I like the bow as well Olivia........


Next we have Cecilia proudly showing us her Birthday Cake Hat.  Watch those flames Cecilia..................


'oops she looks a little worried about those flames

The colours Conny chose for the challenge were - Orange, Violet and Hibiskus, unfortunately the photograph is showing blue rather than Violet.............

I have so many journals and lots of themes get mixed up, so have dedicated the one below just for Mix it Monthly challenges, so the above two will be popped into it.


Am including these offerings into the pot for Paint Party Friday as well.   Before I go, would like to show you my new Owl, made of wood, steel and glass, he is such a cutie.


Sorry about the long post and thank you for staying with me.  Have a terrific weekend and take care of yourselves, hugs Annette x

What wonderful paintings!
I only recently discovered Mix it Monthly and am planning to participate for the first time this month. My point being, I like your idea of a dedicated journal. Hmm,

Merry creating!

Young lady, this is NOT a long post!! You are so avant guarde! I only hope the papers I sent you are not so traditional that you cannot use them. I love everything you do Annette and you always make me smile. Your thank you note is so pretty and I do love the hearts. I am hanging them in my craft room!!
