New work

Got some new hoops: new designs: new fun: totally upcycled too
This is a custom piece I did for a lady who , this is so cute, has a (I think) 5 year old daughter who cares for chickens, and loves to gather their eggs. She calls herself "Farm Girl". Isn't that just the custest thing ever?


I love BOULDER! They were so awesome there! Thank you Firefly, thank you!

Getting Ready

wow, who knew life gets so crazy with 2 kids, preschool, soccer practices, bed times, lunch dates, a house to clean, dishes to do, laundry left unfolded, or unclean, beds unmade, dinner NEVER made, husbands ignored, play dates cancelled, workouts postponed, showers postponed, and a show to get ready for? yeah, welcome to my life. Atleast i can say this is my last show for a while... till december at least. Can't wait to actually have a clean organized home again.... VIVA HANDMADE

Horseshoe market, it's back again!

This weekend: OCT 1st: 46th and Tennyson: 9am-4pm.

New Animal towels

Here are a few more towel designs that I made for an Etsy order recently. I thought I'd make a few extra for the shows coming up. These were all custum orders so they were all individualized and titled. Just an idea if you want to by a custom towel with a name sewn on. I can also add these to embroidery hoops if you want a framed piece to hang on the wall. just saying.

wow, the time has come again for the next round of fall shows. I'm not complaining, I love this weather! If anyone wants to join me this weekend I'll be at the Fire Fly in Boulder, here's the info:Next weekend, on the 24th, i'll be at the Sweet William Market in Stapelton with my good friend Jentry of Yaarnsavvy

Come one, come all

I'M BACK!! wow, talk about a looonnnggg trip that was. good to see California again though. but daunting coming home to a super messy craft room and a show less than 2 weeks away. yikes. but luckily i have some inventory made up so i don't feel like i have to completely loose my mind again. however, i do have some new things coming to the show that i'm pretty excited about that i've found over the last few months. i will be posting images soon but if you get a chance come and see me on Aug 6th! it's going to be a great show, i can feel it in my crafty bones. okay, their more likely just brittle bones but still, you get the point.

The Spring Horseshoe show

This show was awesome!! we had 110 vendors and over 6,000 people come and shop! And surprisingly, Denvers weather held out and it was a nice sunny day. bonus.
a few things i had on display, i ended up making a ton of dishtowels. so now they are going to go up on ETSY :) and i'm saving them for the next show, which is Aug. 6th so save the date people! I'm also hoping to get into the Firefly this July, so stay posted .
This was a happy me after the show, with my mom and hubby :) you probably wouldn't be able to tell but i was about to pass out. I think i got about 4.5 hours of sleep the night before, and averaged about 6 a night from the previous 2 weeks. good thing the bags under my eyes don't show much when i smile :)

Bunny Towel

so last night was our wards silent auction for girls camp, so i thought i would be nice and donate a "Sister Hipster" item. only after i signed myself up on the list i thought to myself.. what the heck am i doing? everyone in this ward is super crafty and sews! so the only thing i could come up with besides the typical burper and baby bib, was a..... dish towel! yey! kinda lame, i know, but if you know me, you know i make a lot of these bad boys. So this is what i came up with.. it's just like the mr. bunny i did but with fabric. I used the same techniques as this tutorial but again with fabric, not paper. obviously. And i backed the fabric with interfacing and sprayed it with starch. i have to say i had a lot of fun making in and wanted to keep it myself. but I had to put something in that i was somewhat proud of so thank you jenny for bidding on it!! it went to a great home :)

my little easter bunny

so my sweet sister called me the other day and asked me to make a rabbit like i made the fox. so here's the result. i'll have the whole tutorial on her blog soon. i apologize though, i'm really not the best at doing this kinda stuff, so just bare through it and try not to laugh hysterically at the photo quality, cause i know i would. but that's just me. hopefully you're all nicer than that. hopefully.

thank you Beatrix

looking for a little vintage holiday flair? well, i know i was. I found this really old book at the thrift store that i have a love/hate relationship with. but that's another story. but yeah, this book is awesome!! perfect size pictures for this kinda stuff. you can find them here on etsy

library cards?

So last month for this "supper exclusive" card group I was invited into (after some serious initiation i won't mention), we had the topic to do a "whatever" card. So this is what i ended up with. I got the super fun and fancy library card template here:
library pocket

The cards themselves i designed on photoshop then added some extra stampage for love:)
