Recently, my workplace changed to having swipe card access rather than the punch codes we had been using. We’ve never required ID badges for employees and I’ve never worked anywhere where we had badges or cards. So this is a new experience for me.Read More
I love this little kit. I get to dig around in my box of favorite paper scraps and collect up a series of patterns, text, and pictures to inspire both you and me to play with collage. The pictured kit is an approximation of what you will receive. Each kit is unique but are made in batches so contain the same style and amount of papers shown.

I’m excited about this project. It’s such a great way to use up scraps – this whole pile was from my “end run” type pieces. And then there is also the fact that it’s the first push towards re-doing the living room area… one area I have yet to tackle.Read More
The couch totally needs a redress. I really want to make a slip cover, but wow that’s a huge project. I think I need a baby step first. I want to do something to jazz up this bag boy on bricks (literally, but that is a story for another dayRead More

I really love this clutch for 2 simple reasons – one it is so quick to make, just under a half hour and you have a little clutch; two it is perfect for holding pencils, pens, and crochet hooks! Perfect!
