My mod podge desk...

For those of you who don't know who Meg is over at Brassy Apple, you need to get over there and say HI! She is one of the most creative people I've come across. She has the neatest tutorials and DIY projects on her blog. I've been wanting to try this project of hers for a while but just didn't know what to do it on. Well, duh!! I was cleaning my messy office last night and it dawned on me - MY WORK SURFACE - I can do my work surface!! So I tackled it last night with a bottle of mod podge and some Amy Butler paper and here is what it looks like from beginning to end!

For my first time, I thought it turned out pretty cool. A few bubbles here and there but that is ok. This is where I have my cutting mats plus I need to put a few clear coats on it too!
Thanks Meg for your great ideas!

I just rolled my eyes at him and started snapping pictures.

Aren't these the cutest? I've been whipping up a bunch of these cute headbands the last couple of days. I've got about 20 of them done. You can see a few of them in my Etsy shop, so be sure to stop by and see the many ways you can wear these cute little things!

Aren't these the cutest models too? These girls live in our neighborhood and are the sweetest! Thanks Kenz and friends for modeling!!

I'm getting ready for Saturday at Avenue for the Arts Market. It should be a good time. I've never been so I'll let you know what goes on down there. ;) The market will take place from 4pm-9pm on Saturday down the 100 block of Division in downtown Grand Rapids so if you are in the GR area come on down and see us!

The Fabric Fairy has come to town...

...well she is actually just the mail lady but I call her the fabric fairy because just about every day she brings me some pretties! Check these bad boys out - I got these beautiful goodies over a span of 3 days last week. YUMMY! Sandi Henderson out did herself with her newest line - Farmers Market.

They are all just beautiful and I cannot wait to start creating with them.

My first project was to make a purse and a snap purse for my MILs cousins daughter - did you follow that?? You're one up on me if you did. Anyway she was at my house swimming the day some of these pretties arrived. She grabbed the ones she liked and picked out the pattern and WHALA - here it is!! I thought it turned out super cute. Tomorrow it gets shipped out to Iowa! Bye bye cute little purses!!
