HangingLace

November 25, 2010

 

Inspired by a set of earrings she spotted at Anthropologie, Miss Demi-Brooke (of ´╗┐LoveBirdsVintageNest´╗┐) asked me to create her a pair of dangling lace earrings, and I must say, I do like how they turned out…

A hundredth and a first

August 31, 2010

Do you celebrate a 100th post when all 99 before have just been ramblings and unimportant photographs and craftings? heck, why not? And to celebrate properly I decided its time for a first… my first giveaway!

so, remember my photograph envelopes? I made a special little set for the giveaway! It’s a NYC envelope set, and they came out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself! It’s a set of 5 in varying sizes and cuts.

All you have to do to enter is to tell me your name and your favorite thing(s) to make (whether its food, craft or whatever!). Winner will be chosen randomly on friday!

Sneak Peak

July 21, 2010

Me and Miss April have been practicin’ our sewing skills lately. We’re just about done our first project and cannot wait to start our next ones! Will definitely be posting some more photos once I get a little “neater” with my sewing:)

Two loves

July 13, 2010

Today was my day off and, of course, it rained.

I was in a crafty mood and was looking for something to do when I came across a book someone gave me a while ago. It’s one of those thrift store 1970’s travel photography books with cheesy picture of sunbathers in bikinis and “artistic” views of fountains and tall buildings. Wondering whether to throw it away or send it back to make rounds at thrift stores it then occurred to me… ENVELOPES

I love envelopes.
Like most kids I adored getting mail. Even now I still love it. I adore that my grandparents still send me valentines day and halloween cards and the biggest smile stretches across my face when my boyfriend sends me a letter or postcard while he’s away for work.
I used the pages of photos in that book to make these little guys. I like how they turned out a lot… they’re each so unique.

I love photography too, of course.
this little craft made me want to make stationary out of my own photographs (don’t worry, that’ll be another post for another time) and really just made me look at photos in a whole new way. Its fascinating to change your perspective sometimes.

I made many more of these little guys from the pages of that book, but these are just a few of my favorites.

Feathers and Hair

July 3, 2010

Got some pretty little feather charms this week and have been trying to decide what to do with them… aren’t they lovely?

I’ve made a hair pin out of one so far that I am loving…

Terrariums

June 30, 2010

Finallyyy,
It’s about time I posted some terrarium photos right?
I’d say that I’ve been busy (because, well, I have) but I’ve also been slacking a bit too…

So here they are! My terrariums
I got both jars from a local thrift store for 25cents each. I love the cork tops and the shapes of them. April brought us all these adorable figurines to put in out terrariums and I couldn’t help but pick the little fawn of course…

Make sure you check out Demi’s photos of her terrariums too – they are too cute!
