Welcome to the creative home of artist and maker Charlotte Lyons.

J is for...

J_is_for_1_1 Jake.

He is home from the salon and sooooo clean. He hates baths, but he sure likes the way we all love him when he is so soft and clean. This felt letter is from his Christmas stocking. I am going to post the whole thing soon--it's mighty cute. It was originally a project I did for my column in Create and Decorate a few years ago. Lately, I have been doing Easter crafts --dyeing eggs in November!-- for another magazine and am ready to go full tilt to Christmas. Best time of the year to be crafty. Let's get to it.

Note-- The sun finally came out and we had a lovely walk at the pond this morning. See the handsome fellow in the photo album titled dog walk.
