Pinterest //


Pinterest has been spreading like wildfire! Many of you have an account and are addicted to Pinterest! I've talked to lots of gals who love scrolling through on their phone and computer looking and pinning all of the pretty pictures. It's such a great way to share amazing finds! 
My favorite use of Pinterest is to use it as a bookmarking tool. I'm easily able to save articles, blog posts, good tutorials etc to access for later. I've been pinning for about 6 months and my boards were rather messy and not thought-through. It's been bugging me for awhile so I've spent most of this morning, re-organizing and editing the boards, and applying my brand to Pinterest. Since I love and blog about crafts, I've made individual boards for each craft. Within the boards are tutorials, inspirational photos, and great ideas for each type:

Another aspect that I love about it, is to catalog ideas. For example, I'm in the process of designing a new quilt design for our bed. I've made a board entitled: Bed Quilt Design and I've been pinning images and fabrics that I might use to guide my design process. Finally, I love holidays, so I've started boards for the current (and some past) holidays to pin crafts and projects that I like that have to do with that holiday. 
I'm really excited to share this with you! Follow me pinning on Pinterest, I hope that you'll continue to be inspired and begin more crafting! ;) Are you on Pinterest? Have you been bitten by the bug yet and are addicted? If so, how have you found it useful?




Friday Favorites << 05


Who isn't in love with Lotta Jansdotter's new line echo?! I love this dresden plate made by Claudia from Machen und Tun.
Mr. Bazaar introduced me to Marks & Spencer's new collection this week. I simply couldn't take my eyes off of it! I love the sleek design of the furniture, along with the bright bold pattern of the rug! 
Modern Findings featured these beautiful Cathrine Holm spice canisters.  I'd love to find these someday   soon! 
You might have seen Luke Lamp Co as he was featured seller on Etsy this week. As a browsed through his shop, I was stunned by how he clearly showed his aesthetic through his photos. I love old lightbulbs and his style subtly transported me back in time. 
Those are my favorites from this week! Hope you have an amazing weekend! 
I have a list a mile long, as Chris gets ready to sell many of his pieces in Seattle on Saturday, and I'm getting ready the last minute pieces for Alt: (custom bag, business cards, packing, outfit planning, etc.)
See you Monday!

2012 has gotten off to an amazing start!
Here are a few of my favorite finds from the blog world this week! 
While searching pinterest and some of my favorite sites, I found this brilliant heart necklace tutorial. Can't wait to go to a bead store to get the right supplies!

Chris and I love a good chair! We happen to have two of these Selig chairs (reproduction Eames) and we still love them! What draws me into this home is the rug and I love the combination of black/white and warm browns.

Check out this shop! Nancy has so many beautiful printed textiles! I love the spring tones in this fabric.
Chris and I dream of going to the Rose Bowl Flea Market...but for now I'm living vicariously through Danni from Oh Hello Friend!

This is my perfect idea of a cosy chair! Mid-century rocker with warm textile and some woodland creatures to cuddle next too! Found via Design*Sponge's Sneak Peek into Andrea Bricco's home
Love this vintage print! I'd love to make this into a christmas card!  I found it on pinterest, photo credits unknown. If you know, please leave a comment. 
I stumbled across Doodle Birdie Imaginariums while looking for glass and I couldn't take my eyes off these terrariums and these beautifully styled pictures.
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've enjoyed some of my favorite finds for this week!
