For some reason, I love the "Shabby Chic" look. I guess because it uses soft colors, a bit vintage looking, and reminds me of a "yestayear" I should have been born in.
Whenever I create something, it always seems to reflect this certain style. I know it's not for everyone, (just like my mother's "Early American") was not my style. But I think your home should reflect "you" and what is pleasing to your eye.
November is a busy month for birthdays in our family. I enjoy making my own gifts and cards. (I truly believe a hand made card or gift shows the love you have in your heart for someone)
Here are a couple of things I have worked on this month: This is a set of note cards and it's holder.
Here's another Domino book I made.
Here are some cards I've made for family members or friends.
So as you can see, "Shabby Chic" is muted pastels, very feminine and has a soft, vintage look to it. I hope the recipients of my cards and gifts enjoy them as much as I love to make and give them.
