The holidays came and whizzed by so quickly, I hardly had a chance to decorate my own tree! I’m a bit behind on my blog.

For posterity (*my kids*) I wanted to post about the honor I had of having my “Cupcake Liner Butterflies” published in Germany in 2017.

Das Haus’ Ideen Magazin is a wonderful publication in Germany with engaging pictures and wonderfully creative ideas. I only wish I spoke German! It is a compliment to the publishers that the magazine is so engaging, even to a non-German speaker. It’s a lovely magazine from cover to cover!

I want to thank the publishers of Ideen Magazin for including my project in this publication. I was surprised and delighted to have my first international publication and they did a terrific job including just the right photos and tutorial information.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy 2018!

I was thrilled to have an article featured in this month’s GreenCraft magazine! The article is a tutorial on how to reuse shower rings and turn them into sweet miniature flower frames. The editors of GreenCraft continually produce a publication that is as lovely to look at as it is informative. You can find GreenCraft in America at Michael’s stores and Barnes and Noble Booksellers. Hope you can pick up one and flip through it, at least. My article is the second one, page 12. Have a blessed week! ~Scarlett

I’m thankful to be part of the first issue of Somerset Life to hit the stands in 2016.  All my gratitude goes to the publishers at Stampington~ they present my idea and creations with beautiful photography and exquisite detail.

This article features my idea for Needle Case Valentines~You can see the original post and process photos here.DSCF4567 DSCF4562 DSCF4569 DSCF4561

My Etsy shop that I began in honor of my precious son Knox, who passed away in 2014 from Cockayne Syndrome, is still up and features pieces of original art and many pretty card sets for sale. All proceeds go to fund research for CS.DSCF4565

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to check out this gorgeous new issue.

Published in Somerset Studio Jan/Feb 2014

I’m surprised and delighted to see my Bandit Girl and the Ladybugs paintings( I, II, and III)  featured in the current issue of Somerset Studio!  My heart-felt thanks, once again, to the editors over at Stampington for including my work.

Be sure and check out the current issue at your local bookstore.  Here in central Texas they can be found in Barnes and Noble bookstores and they are also carrying them in Michael’s stores!

And speaking of Somerset Studio, the current challenge for Jane Austen inspired art is due by Feb. 15th. I know there are many of you out there who create beautiful work (I see your blogs!) and have never gotten up the nerve to submit your work for publication.  Let 2014 be the year you put yourself out there!  Create, send it in, and see what happens!

I’ve got some sweet “Thinking of You” cards I just added to Knox’s Etsy shop. Remember all proceeds from his little shop go to CS research and to the aid of families with a child suffering from this syndrome.  Check out Amy and Friends for more information on the charity I support with these funds.

 

And now for a bit about my Knox.  The hard truth is he’s been declining since his 3rd birthday last July. He was hospitalized twice recently, once in late October for dehydration and then immediately following for his first case of pneumonia.  He has been weakened by illness and is now becoming ill frequently. Over the last 3 months he’s lost weight and now weighs a mere 12 pounds, 10 ounces.  He continues to eat well by mouth but his body does not absorb the calories.  Today, he is recovering from an ear infection he developed last week and is finally feeling better.

We had the chance to attend a special birthday party in December!  Knox’s little friend, Miss A., who also has severe Cockayne Syndrome, turned 2 years old and we had a wonderful time celebrating with her family.  As far as we know, Knox and Miss A. are currently the only children in Texas with CS2.

For those of you that have been following my blog for a while, I appreciate your prayers and kind thoughts on our behalf.  This road is getting harder.  The company I keep each week includes Knox’s nurse, his therapist, and the hospice staff.  I’m thankful for them.  Maybe I’ll write more about Knox later, but right now this is all I feel I can share.

Don’t forget to click over to my FB page and like it! I don’t have as much time to blog as I used to, but I try and post on the FB page every other day or so.  I’m also in Instagram as scarlettclay.
