DIY Wedding: Save the Date Cards

I sent out Save the Date cards for our fall wedding on Friday and I think they turned out pretty well. My sister and I were inspired by old vintage train ticket, circus tickets, and and, I would be a jerk not to point you to the great items on etsy that influenced by own design strongly.

How To: Craft Stamped Thank you Cards

The littlest of leftovers are often the hardest to work with. What do you do with one foot of yarn? A single lone button? Well, I came across these two fun ideas and decided to join them together to make my own leftovers project that uses up those littlest of bits.

I still owe some family members thank you cards from my birthday in April so these will be going into the mail as soon as this post is up!

How to: Autumn Textured Thank You Cards

This past July, I participated in a pencil rubbing swap on Swapbot. It reminded me how much I enjoy and how beautiful this simple technique is. With all the leaves blowing around, there are plenty of things to make textures from. When Kelly C told me she wanted to learn to draw textures, my mind instantly thought about pencil rubbings. I know, not exactly what she had been talking about, but a fun project for leftover paper all the same. Love the way the mind works.

Knit Pattern: Stripy Fun Time!

Don’t you love it when you have a favorite card game? It’s you can’t get enough of it. Every time you and your friends get together, one of you pulls out a worn box and starts dealing out the deck. I do. And I don’t. After awhile that super-worn box for your cards starts really falling apart and those precious cards start slipping out.

Well, for my favorite “flavor of the day” game, I opted to knit my own little holder for them.
