Treasury Love!

For those of you who practically live on Etsy (and blogs) like me (whenever I'm not glued to my sewing machine that is), I love treasuries! They're super fun to create, browse through, and be featured in like I was today!

My ADALYN bag was featured in this treasury 

Tasha created this beautiful treasury, and I wholeheartedly agree with the title! I'm so honored to be featured among so many talented and creative people! Check out the great items HERE

A great tip from a great blog!

Okay so here is a perfect example of why I love blogs! I am always inspired by everyone's creativity, and I love tips like the one I'm going to share today!

Ruffles and Stuff is a wonderful blog that I highly suggest following! The post today was so helpful to me I just had to share!

I may be the only one with this problem, but when it comes to taking pictures of aprons or clothes on people, I have the biggest issue with creating a nice, clean backdrop. Since I live in the desert and my backyard is a lovely backdrop of block walls, it's hard to find a professional, clean background to my photos! I can hardly wait to try this idea!

Your simple project starts with these:
Yes, those are shower curtain rings!

Eye Candy

Some days, you just need some eye candy! Anthropologie is always a great resource for inspiration. These items will get you in the mood for spring and summer!

I love how feminine these shoes are!

This dress is bright and sunny, yet delicate and vintage inspired with the ruffles! I love the combination!

Would love to make a knock-off of this necklace!

I am SO in love with this color!!

I hope that eye candy inspires you to create something beautiful!

I'm baaack!

I cannot believe how time has flown by since my last postings! Christmas came and went (and I scored a new sewing machine from my sweet husband!) Now a new year is here and all of a sudden spring has sprung! I am truly blessed with the wonderful life I have, though not without its trials! There have been many changes in my life the last year, and lots of creativity I have been slack in sharing! I plan to change all that! Keep tuned in for tutorials, links to other great blogs and ideas, new projects, shop news, and other randomness!
