Club Anya Blog Hop

Oh I have been waiting and waiting for this!!! Counting down the hours, and deliberately postponing posting anything on my blog lately so I could hoard them up and show them off tonight!

So here it is!!! my Club Anya Blog Hop entries!!!!

Many of you know I am a HUGE fan of Joni's!!! and she totally inspires me all the time, but especially with her great and unique house magazine racks!!!! So I HAD to make some of my own! some of you remember the wixard of OZ onw I made a little while back well to keep with the fairytale esque theme I have going throughout my craft space I had to do little red riding hood and of course peter pan!!! I think little red needs a woolf in her upper wondow now that i look at this house so that will have to be a later addition, but same as the wizard of oz house i did the designer wood paper using Joni's technique. And the one I am most proud of and the one that I don;t think I will ever repeat again!!! lol is my london house with peter wendy and tink. I did the brick by scoring the pattern into a brick red paper and then distressing it with brick red ink and a hint of white ink as well. It looks great! and I am so proud of it but I will never do it again!!! lol. also on this house I designed layered shutters and layered steps by hand and I added fabric to the inside to give it some soft satin curtains! and as I look at it now I think I need a little something on the side, maybe a captain hook sneaking around the bend but a little element of surprise. But I worked so hard and though I though they were done before I looked at these pictures I had to share them with you now even if they may need a little something extra now.


And just some great cards using my fav girls, the Miss Anyas!

So like this one says...It's Party Time! so get on to the next blog! I can;t wait to see everyones creations!

Marji Johnson said...

I found this link and while I like the houses.... I think you need to give credit where it is due.... I know I have seen these houses and this design on another blog ~ by Joni Wilson~ hers were designed months before yours. Please do not plagiarize, is it not right or fair to not give proper credit to a muse! Just to you guys know they have been in her header for months and the blog link is http://astickysituation.blogspot.com/

Have a nice day~

Lindsay said...

Marji, I could just delete your comment but I wont, IF you read my text above it I totally gave credit to Joni and linked her blog to her name, I love Joni's work and I DO NOT plagarize anything I give credit where it is due, and if you also read the comments you would see that Joni herself commented and was flattered I was so inspired by her. And how dare you have the audacity to tell me I am plagarizing someone elses work and not even have the courage to allow me to contact you back, by making this an annonymous comment and can;t even visit your blog that is just rude. so next time why don't you try reading what someone actually takes time to write and see that I did give her credit and you falsly accused me.
