calligraphy wedding invites

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

There's been a lot of weddings this summer, like every summer.  I know I'm not getting married yet, but a girl can still dream. These invitations with addresses in calligraphy are so awesome and I'll definitely use them....someday!

lotta jansdotter

Monday, August 15, 2011

So if I could be anyone when I grow up it would be               Lotta Jansdotter.  She is a textile and print designer living in Brooklyn.  She is just so creative and inspiring and has beautiful designs. Whenever I feel in a rut and need some kind of jump start creatively, I look through her designs and always get inspired to start something new.  She has great projects that either a beginner or someone who feels more advanced could try!

Check out a video here 
and her website is here.

new journals in my shop

Thursday, August 11, 2011

A couple new journals that I listed today....that I'm loving!  I love the simple leather covers and the size.  They're small and chunky with lots of pages.  I think I'll start making more in this size if others enjoy it as well.  There's also fun ribbon bookmarks included.

Find them here and here.

fishtail braid

Sunday, August 7, 2011

So I was remembering the days when fishtails were all the rage.  I still think they're so gorgeous, just not as common, which I love!  I've always been in favor of parts of the 80s...so world, I'm bringing them back into my life. 

They're so easy to do.  Here is a really great tutorial if you want to try and I suggest that you do!
