About


Hello hello,

I'm happy you have found AppleApricot,
my home in Blogland.

A very warm welcome to you.

My name is Wen.

Here's my story and photos of some of the things I made.




I'm a French girl by birth,
but didn't grow up in that beautiful country.





My childhood memories of France
are of family gatherings in the vineyard
or under the apricot trees.





I should have named my blog Grapes and Apricots :)




What I love about the world of blogging
is the sharing with each other of ideas, inspiration, how tos





as well as the generosity I encounter in so many crafty bloggers.
It's truly inspiring.






I started blogging because I wanted to participate in swaps
and share with others the beautiful things I received from my swap partners.





Next to drawing and painting I always loved embroidery.





But when I discovered fabric and lace collages and books...
Oh my, a whole new world opened up to me!





So, in a nutshell what my blog is all about:
fabric and lace crafts / needlework






paper crafts and mixed media
and some thrifty finds.




Oh, and I LOVE making little journals!



My style can be labeled as romantic, vintage, shabby.




Wishing you a beautiful day
and sending you happy smiles!
