I have so many crafty things to share lately! I think my head might be spinning!
First up, I have joined the team at Show Me Handmade! Show Me Handmade is an awesome store at in Crestwood Court's Art Space. The store carries handmade arts and crafts by St. Louis area artisans.
I still need to get my banner for above my section which is still a little bare, but it is a start. I will be working like crazy to add more things until my shelves are overflowing with shabby goodnes. I will also have samples for many of my custom wedding items on display there along with ordering information.
If you love handmade items and are in the St. Louis area, I hope you will stop by and check out the amazing items in the shop. I will be hanging out and playing saleslady there once a week so if you get a chance, stop in and say hi!
I just wanted to share a quick note that new sample flower images have been added to the Posey Pin page. One of my new favorites is Holly Berry:
Posey Pins are available in 41 different colors, however I do not have a flower sample of every color on the site yet. If you would like to see the samples that are onsite, you can see them here: Posey Pins.
I haven't blogged in a bit! Oops. I rotated to the dreaded night shift at work which has me completely out of sorts and off kilter. It the time that I manage to stay awake, I have been so focused on some design assignments for BasicGrey and with creating new items for my various shops, that I have forgotten to blog!
Right now I am way over due to go to sleep so I will skip writing much, I am just too tired to try to make sense! I do want to show you a little something though I created last night though.
I have started making a whole collection of these fabric journals/scrapbooks. The covers have a heavy chipboard base that is padded and covered with fabric. The covers have vintage images printed on fabric and embellished with embroidery and beading. They also have bits of vintage goodness like fabric, lace, ribbon, jewelry bits, buttons, etc.
I am so excited to share that I had the pleasure of doing another project tutorial for Fiskars Crafts. This project is a part of their Summer School series of tutorials on their website. The line up of projects is so fun and vary from sewing to paper to more.
For my project, I did a tutorial featuring a vintage image printed on fabric and then embellished with embroidery.
The tutorial includes step by step instructions for completing the project. I hope you will stop by and check it out. If I do say so myself, I think it is a fun little project that is both fun and easy.
The image I used is from the free image section of my site here.
