Hey folks! It feels an age since I last posted, but I have been waylaid with a weird virus for a little while. The baby also got sick for a little while, so all in all, not much to post about, or energy with which to post! I do need to get back into the swing of things though, so today is the sort of post I started off Mondays with a few months back: that is, simply stuff I like!
First up, I liked this sweatshirt from My Little Belleville on Etsy. The lady behind the shop grew up all over the world and she puts these influences into her designs. This is her Face Time Sweatshirt and I think it has quite a unique design aesthetic. Continue reading “Monday montage: March 14th, from the sickbed”
Yeah, so Valentine’s Day is but a fortnight away. No, I don’t like commercial Hallmark-invented, pure consumerist bullshit holidays either. BUT… you know, I love my man very much, but the type of man who buys flowers and ad-hoc thoughtful little gifts he is not. If your guy/gal does – lucky old you! It’s the one day I year I can guarantee getting a bunch o’ flowers and I LOVE flowers. (Plus you can get the most amazing bouquets at Pike Market here for like $10. Crazy I tell ya.) So bring it on! It makes me happy and he loves making me happy, and then I focus on making him happy even more. We all win. Here are some cool Valentine’s gift ideas I saw:
I always think this is a cool idea. It’s such a personal and thoughtful thing to do to get a portrait of your loved one/ones. Continue reading “Monday montage: The month of lurvvve”
Well… it’s still Monday in Seattle! Just. A busy week – and the main persuing I’ve been doing this week has been for fabric. I’ve got a class coming up in a few weeks to make the Fen dress by Tiger Crafts and I don’t have any material for it yet. I’ve visited a few shops but haven’t quite found what I’m looking for, so hit Etsy for a gander. I’m not sure all these would be suitable, but here are some of my faves:

It’s getting a bit close to order anything for Christmas, so I’m going to round up some great things I saw at the Urban Craft Uprising show in Seattle recently. I must say that the goods and makes on offer were amazing compared to craft shows I’ve been to before. Continue reading “Monday montage: Urban Craft Uprising”
Well, it’s been a House of Viruses the last 10 days or so. First, I caught a nasty cold, then the baby caught a different virus – the first time he’s had a bad one and it was rough! How do I know it was a different one? Because I then caught that one too, so I was laid out again. Winter huh? Continue reading “Monday montage Dec 14th”
Yuck – Mondays. Whether you’re working or at home, Mondays are a dismal start to the week. To cheer myself up I do a little browsing on a Monday morning and make a little montage of stuff I like to dribble over. This week I took a look at Etsy and here are some of the lovely things I found!
