I’m excited to share this week’s tutorial by Caila of CailaMade! Caila’s work is always beautiful and this tutorial does not disappoint. I love it on so many levels.

I had to throw together something cute and fast for this year’s teacher appreciation door (you can see last year’s here). I decided to go with a super hero theme. I almost got caught putting this up, too! As I was getting out of my car with a big bag of clouds and paper and […]

I’ll be at the Patchwork Indie Arts & Crafts Show in Santa Ana this Sunday, November 25th. If you live in Southern California and you’ve never been to a Patchwork show, you should definitely come and check it out. It’s like being able to walk around Etsy.

I wanted to share this fun, easy gift wrapping project I did over the weekend. I had some silver tissue paper and silver fabric ribbon. When I tied the bow, I thought it looked like a robot in a bow tie, so I took a bit of brightly colored cardstock and a black Sharpie and […]
