Sequins!

Today is the big blog hop sponsored by Sarah at Saturday Sequins.  Check out her blog to find other Artist participating in a hop to show you what can be done with those lovely little sequins.  No matter if they are vintage, metal, plastic, big, small, or shaped, sequins are marvelous things that have been used to embellish clothes and bags for ages.  There hasn't been a sequin that I haven't loved.  Please take a moment to look at some of my blast from the past pieces where I've used sequins. You never know where I'll be using those delightful little sequins next.    dot



Please visit the other bloggers who adore sequins as much as I do...Sequin Blog Hop

I love, love, love the owl. So cute.

Thanks so much for joining us for the blog hop! I'm thinking of doing another one in April, and I'd love it if you joined in on that one, too. I'd love to see some more of your sequin work.
