Posted by 1 on

Happy Father’s Day! This morning while the rest of my household slept, I opened up my laptop and felt inspired after a wonderful Saturday night spent cooking and eating and jewelry making with friends. I immediately went to Etsy; where I usually go to fuel my inspiration further. And in doing so, I created a treasury. Click here to see my treasury. My treasury is entitled “Clouds”, it is best to keep it simple and descriptive.

Spring Inspriation

Posted by 1 on

I have been loving this city! All morning it was pouring rain and as I adventured out into the downtown core, the rain broke, clouds parted and the sun made an appearance! I found this amazing website with links to other craft sites and an entire blog universe I had been wholly underutilizing. Four hours and fifty plus bookmarks later, I was swimming in new craft ideas and projects. I dreamed of making my own yarn from old tshirts and revelled in the thought of sewing clutches to give to friends.  Before I went out for my morning americano, I endeavoured...
