Deb made the most beautiful recipe boxes and inspired me to try some of my own. Deb is crazy about paper like I’m crazy about fabric, and when I see what she’s done with paper, it makes me want to a) copy her or b) try the same thing in fabric.
Of course, they never look as perfect as hers do, but here’s my first attempt – a Christmas gift for my sewing student:
And now I’m thinking it would have made sense to fill it with sewing stuff . . . oh well. Maybe next year. Here’s what’s inside:
Don’t you just love those chipwood letters? They’ve come in so handy. More on that in a future post.
And for my nephew who’s crazy about basketball:
And the inside. I love ModPodge!
And look what Karyn sent:
A beautiful set of paper-quilted cards. For being a supportive blogging friend. Supportive blogging friend? There is much inspiration at your blog that I can’t NOT visit! You are so kind. Karyn and I share the same affliction: migraines. But her creative drive is so strong she somehow manages to craft during a migraine. I can not. She opened up an Etsy shop recently and has sold bunches of her card sets. Thank you, Karyn!
And Lera, how do you manage to get anything done while managing your home and new baby? If I were you I fear this blog would not exist. But manage she does, folks, and she makes soap. Chocolate. Chocolate soap. Mmmmm. Delicious. I mean, delicious-smelling, since I’m not allowed to eat it.
And little wreathe snowmen. This little guy is too cute. Do you care to share where you got your itty-bitty wreathes?
On the schedule for tonight? A diaper bag. Stay tuned. )
