I woke up to a sweet email this morning from Omega. She does a few trade shows here and there AND she has an Etsy shop called, Selby Lanes. She made bunches of stockings from my fun little Heirloom Stocking Pattern and sent me some pictures from one of her booths. I had to share because I love her fabric combos! The whole setup is charming as can be.
It looks like fun!
And her Etsy shop has even more inspiration. I'm loving this sweet wreath:
Happy Holidays, everyone!! And thanks, Omega, for sharing your creativity with us all!
I was so happy to stumble across this amazing tutorial from Tanya Whelan. It's for a wonderful Pleated Wrap Skirt. The picture caught my eye and I decided to share it with you. I could totally make these for my daughter... maybe for next Easter...
Isn't this lovely? That Tanya is one amazing, creative gal!!
I stumbled on the most charming little Etsy shop with some seriously good deals. Someone knows how to bargain hunt! So, as an Etsy seller myself, I decided to share a few shops I love. Nothing like a shameless shout-out, right? And she has some sweet vintage fabric, which makes it all fit in with my sewing theme, I'm sure.
The shop is called VauntyVictorian (don't you love the name??) Tara, the owner, is the mastermind behind this shop and she really has an eye for a treasure. Here are a few of my favorites:
...or at least make yourself a home.... ornament. Did that make any sense at all??
Anyhow, I found these amazingly adorable home ornaments over at retro mama's blog. I was so excited that I decided to try one. I was originally thinking a fun little advent tree with 25 of these babies, but I'm not so sure now. It' took a little time, but the result was amazing! Not as amazing as Kim's, but for my first try, I was happy and I learned a LOT!!!
Here are Kim's gorgeous house ornaments. NOTE: This must be like 20 hours of her life, so I hope you are as inspired as me.
I'm sure many of you have come across Kate's fun blog, Centsational Girl. I check 3 blogs every day and this is one of them. I love this gal and her creative spunk. She does the DIY thing, but it never looks DIY! Her creations are always beautiful, classy, and they will save you money!
She just posted all about sweater pillows and I thought it was perfect with Fall and Winter coming up. Best part, she made these from sweaters found at Goodwill!! This gal is seriously amazing! Way to go Kate!

So, if you haven't already, go check Kate's blog out. I KNOW you will be inspired!!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. I sure had a good time. I love that my neighbors come trick-or-treating with their kids and they stay and gab for 10 minutes! What great friends I have! It was also the most amazing weather ever for Halloween!
But, I have one last Halloween note before we let this holiday go... I found this over at Tula Pink's blog!
It's a new line, due out in April, called Nightshade. I have seriously enjoyed this gal's fabric designs and her creativity. I can't wait to see her quilt samples with this stuff! I'm sure it will be thrilling!
