It's me! That's right.... I'm still around. I've been MIA for months but with really good reasons. After the holiday season I took a seasonal office position that kept me busy through the better part of March, then it was back to the craftiness that is me. I have been crafting up a storm lately! My latest crafty partnership venture Apple Sprouts started out so well, but after a few months I've had a huge out calling of followers and customers asking me to bring back the Paper Pixie, (paperpixiecrafts) So I have decided that I need to stick with my original plan and focus solely on PPC. That being said, with me just returning from our semiannual family beach vacation, and fall & holiday craft season just around the bin, I figured now was as good of time as any to catch you all up on my journeys.In the past few months I have took to sewing more that I ever expected. Mainly focusing on children's items and women's accessories. I just love the feeling of a finished project. I can't believe the improvement I've seen in my own sewing skills since I've began to do it more often. I can finally say that I feel confident in my abilities to sew just about anything now. (with exception to zippers! they still make me cringe. Shhh.) My livingroom officially looks like a sewing sweat shop. I'll have to get that studio back in order before the holiday's so I can replace my work tables with a twinkling tree. ( =
During the sewing rush I have filled my crafting time with plenty of earring making to break up the monotony of constant sewing, and of course I make hair bows to go with each and every little girl outfit I make... because who doesn't love a matching bow?
My plans for the upcoming months include hosting a DIY wedding (this weekend! EEP!) as well as fall craft shows for almost every weekend in September and October. I'll be one busy gal!
I hope to start checking in here more often, but I'm sorry to say that the daily themed post was a bit unambitious for my blogging style. I'll eventually find the time to reformat the sections of this page, but don't worry... I'll archive all the goodies I posted during my days of themed post. (=
Now that you have listened to my year in the life... I guess what you'd all really like to see... is the projects I've been working on. Here's a quick run down in photos.
