200th Post!


I can't believe that I've made it to my 200th post! Looking back, it's amazing to see how much I've grown in blogging, and how many projects and activities I've accomplished and been able to share with you. It only ignites my passion to continue sharing and striving to inspire YOU to craft! 
Here's a look back at some of my favorite projects and posts. Enjoy! 
#10 - These Zipper Bags were the first that I had tried anything involving a zipper. It's not easy, but not impossible! Zippers really take practice and these little pouches are perfect for just that. 
#9 - One of my first experiences of the Alameda Flea Market. I miss going here and the sunshine! But perhaps next time I'll be a vendor! ;) 
#8 - Our First Booth at the Alberta Street Fair. Little did we know how much of a profession this would turn into for us! ;) This year, Chris and I will be combining our booth and assuming a fresh new name for our vintage sales. Come see us this Saturday at Beggars Banquet and all season at Portland Flea
#7 - This Rainbow Chevron Quilt started as a challenge to use just 5" square solids (a first for me!). Cutting them up and making zig zags was only natural. 
#6 - I loved making this Vintage Sheet Quilt. It's basically one block turned into one quilt. I just sold this quilt on etsy and I've been stockpiling more sheets, it's time to make a new one! ;) 
#5 - This was the first project I made from Martha Stewart Living for my new project "Living Martha Stewart Living." This Astronomical Tree Topper will be donning the top of our Christmas trees for many years to come! 
#4 - Teaching Glass Etching at Portland Bazaar was such a great experience! Loved working with Kate from Portland Flea, and getting to share a fun craft with over 30 people. 
#3 -  Going to ALT was one of the best decision I've made! I learned so much and met so many amazing people. Making this DIY Tote Bag to help brand myself was icing on the cake! 
#2 - Interview with Emily Henderson// Secrets from a Stylist - Part One, Part Two, Part Three
#1 - My favorite project to date: the Tissue Paper Wall Heart. It casts an amazing spell over any room! 
I hope you've enjoyed this round-up! Over the next 100 posts, you will see many more DIY projects, vintage finds, and inspiration to begin/continue crafting yourself. 
Thanks so much for being a reader, I appreciate you so much!



3-D Valentine Cards // Living Martha Stewart Living


Card-Making is probably my all-time favorite craft. It's quick, simple, and beautiful! 
These pop-up cards are a perfect quick Valentine Card to make. If you haven't gotten a card for your valentine yet, try making one of these! 
I opted to make the Love 3-D card. Martha Stewart Living always has links to pdf's to print out. It's super helpful and they are usually really high quality. Click here for the full tutorial and print outs. 


I couldn't resist adding some washi tape to the front of the card, and then adding Chris' name onto the outside of the envelope. 
I hope you all have a special Valentine's Day! 



DIY // Washi Tape Valentine Cards


If you're anything like me, you can't stop buying japanese washi tape! At Collage, we have it in truckloads as we've just received lots of new colors. I was inspired to try something with it and after seeing this pin, from a Norwegian blogger, Moa og kaffekoppen. I knew I had to make them!



I hope that these inspire you to make some cards of your own. 
Happy Friday! 



Friday Favorites << 03


Beautiful and simple tutorial to make your own bows. Found via 100 Layer Cake
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!
