A New Bag

Late last night I got inspired to sew myself a new summer bag:

I used a mixture of some brand new fabrics and some blue gingham I picked up at the thrift shop last week. I love it so much (especially that bird fabric).

If you're here from Sew, Mama, Sew looking for my giveaway, it's right HERE.

A Satisfied (and adorable) Customer

Our friend Gabriella enjoys some olives while wearing a Waldeck Dry Goods bib. Her mama says that her "lello el'phant" bib is one of her favorites!

These brooches are made from bits of fabric and felt that have been rescued from my scrap bin. They are lots of fun to create; I don't make them with a plan in mind. I just start layering and layering. There are a few listed in my shop, and I'll be selling them at Crafty by Nature in June.

New Cards

When I saw these cards last week, I knew they were something I wanted to make.

Luckily, Ava is talking up a storm these days (like, non-stop), and we have been keeping a list in the kitchen of all the things she comes up with.

I haven't used a store-bought card in ages, but lately I've been spending so much of my crafting time working on sewing projects. I haven't had (or made) time to work on cards. These are quick and easy, and still satisfy my need for making and sending handmade cards.

Sorry for the poor photo quality. It's dark, and my hubby with be working on his thank you notes and sending them out tomorrow morning. Right, dear?

Crafty By Nature has been canceled for today, but I'll be there next month.

I will be adding some things to my shop over the next few days. I also have lots of ideas to work on that I just didn't have time to get to for today's show.

So today I'm enjoying an unexpected day with nothing scheduled. We've made plans to see some friends and their new baby this evening, and until then I'm relaxing with coffee and a few books while Daddy entertains Ava.

Sunstone Soap (and a shameless self-promotion)

(image from Sunstone Soap)

Last week I entered's weekly giveaway, and I won! Kim from Sunstone Soap sent me three bars of delicious smelling soap that I can't wait to try. Sunstone Soaps are all-natural, 100% vegetarian, and they donate a percentage of their profits to animal welfare organizations. I'll definitely be shopping here in the future.

P.S. I just saw that I'm featured on HandmadeinPA's Vendor Spotlight today! =)
