I'm Anni Schwabe and I create art everyday. I also love teaching art. I have many ideas in my head that need to be brought to fruition. Check back occasionally and see where my muse takes me.

Here's my Color Combo card for 365 Cards challenge. Speaking of colors, please note the ribbon and bow on this card.. I hand dyed the seam binding ribbon, and while that's nothing new for me, I wanted to share how I did these. I found out you can boil avocado peels and get a shade of pink dye. Yes, avocado peels: PINK
Avocado dye bath
Ribbon, silk and embroidery thread
More ribbon, coffee filters and cotton fabric
I will have a separate post for my explorations with avocado dying. (I've never eaten so many avocados in my life!)
