Design*Sponge, Country Living Fair, and a shop update!

Well, I have been a blogging bum. Sorry I haven't posted in so long. So, let's catch up! First bit o' exciting news is that my wreaths have been featured in the new Design*Sponge at Home book! Page   to be exact. It all started when I saw on twitter that Grace Bonney was accepting ideas, so I got bold and emailed her. Thankfully she remembered me from winning the DIY contest back in 2008, I think that helped a lot. She loved my photo, which was a total "happy accident," as I barely know how to use the SLR camera. My husband sets the settings and tells me how to change a couple things and that's all I know. It was so hard to keep the book "quiet" for 2 years! I mean...I told a few people but I couldn't broadcast it until it was in print. So, here is my page!

Last weekend I joined my friend Kelly McCants, of Sewing With Oilcloth fame, at the Country Living Fair in Atlanta. I cut oilcloth and laminated cotton yardage for her for 2 days it was SO fun. I loved meeting all the customers and making new friends like Suzanne and Tiffan. I also met another girl who made it into the Design*Sponge book...she's super talented. I also had someone purchase a pincushion with the intent of using it in the Willow Tree catalog to display jewelry. I don't know when it will come if anyone sees it...let me know!

I did a big shop update yesterday and there are lots of new things! Headbands, wreaths, and some cute little hand sewn animals. I hope you enjoy!

And check out a pic of one of my wreaths in a customer's home! So gorgeous! Casey used this 14 inch wreath in her sweet new baby girl's room.
