How romantic. My friend and I went to the arthall in Rotterdam and saw an exhibition called ICON DRESSED designed by Annette Meyer, each garment was made of paper and represented a decade of women clothing from the 1800's till now. I was amazed by a garment which looked exactly like the dress Keira Knightley wore in Pride & Prejudice, I went home got into a romantic state of mind, converted that into creativity and made this.

Did you know Mother’s Day is about a week and half away?? Eek!! I don’t know about you but I’m scrambling a bit here. ;) So I thought I’d help you out. Actually, Melissa and I are helping you out. :) Melissa sent in a Tutorial Request for a darling Boden Necklace – and I knew that it would be perfect for a Mother’s Day idea. Or a “I’m going to make that myself for Mother’s Day” idea. ;)
