Crazy About Quotes by Sonja McLean

Each year, at our local craft fair, we visit Eileen Mosca's booth. She makes inspirational artwork. Her designs are inspired by Vancouver scenes and her quotes are amazing. Many of her magnets adorn my fridge and I read them nearly every day. A few of her framed prints are in my children's bedrooms as well. I adore her work (and she's a lovely lady also).

My point is, I love quotes. Here are a few projects I made using some of my favourite quotes.

This quote was taken from the television series "Firefly". This wall hanging is made from Technique Tuesday tiles which I've been hoarding for years. It's about 2' long and contains 4 frames connected by jump rings.

Supplies: Technique Tuesday tiles, Basic Grey pp and chipboard letters, Prima swirls and flowers.

This quote is from Lady Gaga's lyrics. Long before I heard "Born This Way" on the radio, my oldest son showed me this video on YouTube. I fell in love with the song immediately. These photos of my daughter posing for the camera while carrying her brother's wooden gun, Dora backpack loaded with toys & wearing a Christmas shirt long after the season, were perfect for the song!

Supplies: Bo Bunny pp, Echo Park & Adorn It letter stickers, My Mind's Eye diecut pp, Purple Onion Designs stamps.

This quote by Herm Albright (quoted in Reader's Digest, June 1995) is one of my all-time favourites. This 4x4 canvas is backed by a chipboard die-cut & magnets. It has a permanent home on my fridge.

Supplies: 4x4 canvas from dollar store, Crate Paper pp, Accucut die and black chipboard, Sojo Designs flowers.

Happy Friday! For all you locals, be sure to check out the Sewing & Crafts show happening this weekend at Trade Ex in Abbostford!
