Adding to an Already Sweet Creation....

Isn't this just the sweetest creation.....



Dawn over at the Feathered Nest has some beautiful toutorials that can be purchased. When I got these from her I decided to add something to her original design.  I love taking a Wonderful Idea and adding a bit of my own flair to it.... Have you ever done that?  If you are someone who loves to create, I think  you know exactly what I am saying.  I wanted to share with you how I took  an  unique idea, and added just a bit of embellishment to it. 


I had added some crystal candlesticks to my pincushions which you can see HERE.  I liked the look and decided to add them to the fairy jars.  I added a wonderful button to just finish off the look.
Isn't she the sweetest thing.....




I would have never thought of making a Fairy Jar until I saw Dawn's tutorial on her blog.   Now with the few embellishments I have  a new look. Many of us do not come up with the original idea.  It's exciting to think of ways to take a unique and make it our own!  Thanks for visiting.  Stop by the following links to see many creative ideas.  I'll be posting this to...

Good Morning Sherry,
You have really created something beautiful to look at. I would dare anyone to use it if it were mine. Looks only!
I like how you added the base, the ribbon and the little tag. All so sweet.

These are adorable!!
I love tweaking things, and putting them on the bases is a great idea.
Something about raising things up gives them that extra 'elegance'.

Blessings

Love your ideas! You are so creative!

Awesome! Just awesome. I totally agree with the feeling of taking an idea and adding your own spin to it. That's one reason blogging is so fun! I can not see an idea anymore and just copy it. I have to take it one step further and do something new with it. Just love the creative challenge.

BTW, I think your link on ASPTL is incorrect. I saw it and it was trying to go to your email.
