 Just Add Sequins ~
Where did these shiny little guys come from?
Sequins can be traced all the way back to the one and only King Tut.  According to Smithsonian magazine, when Tut’s tomb was discovered in 1922, his garments were covered in “gold sequin-like disks.” Historians believe they were meant to ensure his financial stability in the afterlife. Eventually, they became purely decorative, popping up on the intricate garments of Victorian women and men and experiencing a resurgence in the 1920's. A man named Herbert Lieberman worked with Eastman Kodak (yep, of that Kodak) to develop acetate sequins inspired by the acetate film the company had been using. They were eventually coated in Mylar and then dumped entirely for the vinyl plastic renditions that we’re used to today. Pretty crazy that the history of something we use today to decorate our cards and such go back that far, right?  Whenever I feel one of my cards is missing something, I almost always say.....Just Add Sequins!

For this challenge, show me some of your  favorite Sequins and inspire us all on how you use them.  Biglittle, a whole lot, or just a few will do.

The winning entry will be crowned with the title of Princess Dragonfly, and have you and your blog featured in Challenge No. 118 ~ Remember any type of project you're working on is welcome here (cards, scrapbook pages and albums, mixed media, etc.) and you could see your way to being the next Princess Dragonfly ~ That's it!  You can still join and win if you don't have a blog.

 April Showers bring May Flowers ~

It's one of my favorite sayings for Spring, and the proverb "March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers" was first recorded in 1886, or the shorter version that we use now "April showers bring May flowers" is part of a poem recorded in 1610. The phrase is also referenced in the general prologue of The Canterbury Tales.
 It is a reminder that even the most unpleasant of things, in this case the heavy rains of April, can bring about very enjoyable things indeed -- even an abundance of flowers in May :)

For this challenge, show me some Showers (umbrellas, rain, boots, baby or wedding shower, etc.) or any kind of Flowers as we all welcome Spring!

~ Challenge No. 115 - Baker's Twine ~

Bakers twine wasn't always the colorful arts and crafts material we use today.
It's history is actually quite simple: it's called baker's twine because its earlier use was for bakeries to tie paper wrapping around loaves of bread, cake boxes, and the like. Plain brown or white was probably the cheapest to have around rather than the colored ones.  Fast forward to today, and you have twine bursting with colors, with uses that go well beyond just for tying.

Twist it, wrap it, or tie it in a bow, just a little or a whole lot, and baker's twine is the perfect product to give your cards a special finishing touch.
