Every 6 months or so I get to the point in my studio where my works in progress, stash, gifts, random house stuff, and hid-away-so-guest-won’t-see-it” […]
That’s right, I’m showing you a picture of how my fabric should look. It’s so bad I’m not even going to show you the current […]
Thrift Kitchen Each Thursday I post about ways to be thrifty in the kitchen. To me, it isn’t just about being cheap, it’s about living […]
Here are the filofax printables that I laid out in InDesign. You can download them by clicking here. I like to plan out the main […]
When I first thought of making my own zine library I was at a loss as to what would fit them all. How could it […]
Every winter I have a nice pile of handmade items to keep me warm when I head outside. With that pile comes a dilemma: Where […]
I wanted to follow up on the post I wrote two weeks ago about my sketchbook organizing dilemma. I’m happy to say that thanks to […]
I draw a lot. For every issue of Craft Leftovers Monthly, I burn through about 2 dozen pages or so of my sketchbook, drawings, notes, […]
I can count on just my hands the things I’ve bought from the craft/yarn store this year: painting supplies for a painting class, yarn for a pair of socks, yarn for a present for my mom, fabric for a shirt and dress (I actually made both, so that’s good.), a small fabric kit.

Yikes! Look at that pile of tangled up mess. I have a bin that’s specifically for leftover yarn and over the last few months I’ve […]
I’m sure I’ve mentioned my tendency to say “yes” to everything. “Can you help me do ________?” and “no problem” is my default response. This […]
It’s been a month or so since I moved out of my home studio and into the office space. I decided to leave a workspace […]
It’s strange to think that I moved into my studio just 2 (well, okay, getting closer to 3) months ago. How could I ever have […]
Since getting back from San Francisco I have slowly been catching up and getting things back on track. It is so annoying how 2 weeks […]
We have all been told since we were kids that we should clean our workspace as we go along. That we should put things away […]
I really like these envelopes because 1)They are just the right size & 2)They have folding tabs that lock into place and unlock with ease. Oh and they are made with old paper bags! Even Better! Download the free template….
So I went to my fabric stash, which is all too massive and out of control in my bedroom and I found amazing things. I […]
It’s great having a place to put all my stitch markers instead of just putting them into random little pouches and bags and cubbyholes.
I redid the wooden 4 drawer set I had mentioned yesterday. It wasn’t really hard to do but made me feel really good. Kind of set the rest of my day on good footing you know. Here is what I did:
