finding a bit of time for creating....

 I really love creating these mini journals....perfect for springtime gift giving. Someone recently told me she loves using her notebooks to jot down prayers....and with the state of the world....a perfect use.

 These scrappy cards are so fun to make....it is a great way to use up all those bits and pieces that you just can't bear to part with.

 I really love sweet pastels....but lately bolder palette shades have been calling my name as I see spring emerging from the grass in pretty shades of purple and yellow.

I also have a fond affection for scrappy pillows, blankets and all sorts of other sewing creations. This sweet pillow cover is a fun way to welcome springtime. It has 4 different fabrics throughout....with a fun polka dot print on the backside. Welcome spring.....I can't wait to see you emerge in all your fabulous colors!

vintage fabric love...................

Vintage fabrics....so many options as to what to create with all the loveliness. I recently stumbled across a vintage terry cloth table cloth and knew I wanted to create some lovely guest hand towels....love how these turned out.

You can also use your vintage fabrics to cover and create lovely greeting cards...this one would be perfect for a birthday, get well, thank you or wedding.

And who doesn't need a sweet lil' ruffle pouch to hold all your little tid bits?! Pouches are a must have in our household....they are used for pencils, markers, organize tid bits, makeup and as gifts for dear friends.

And a sweet little notebook is always handy...jot down this and that. Another sweet gift to have on hand for a dear friend.

Seems like there is always someone I know who is having a baby....so bibs and baby items are always in the making at our home. I love using all the scraps to create these scrappy bibs......just too precious. I am in sewing mode as I fill my shop with oooodles of new springtime goodies this week....stay tuned for ruffled bags, coasters, shoe bags, pillow covers and more.

vintage flair.......

 I really adore vintage books....especially ones with lovely graphics....and birds....could it get any better?!

 I have a fondness for vintage plastic pieces that can be remodeled and transformed. Yet...this bowl looks lovely as it is...but wouldn't it be divine with a fresh coat of yummy yellow paint?

 This vintage plastic organization station is one of my fave finds.....love the sweet mushrooms! I was tempted to keep this since it is extra lovely....but alas I have posted it in my shop for someone else to love and cherish.

 These vintage plastic bumble bees are a first find for me....I have never spied these before  and absolutely love them. They were originally a pale off white....now a lovely pale lemon yellow.

 Vintage trims...oh how I love vintage trims!

A pillow fit for a princess....extra luxurious and super duper fancy schmancy....pretty, pretty.
