Circular Weaving with Baker’s Twine

I have been wanting to try weaving for a really long time, I have a couple weaving looms that my mother-in-law lent me but I haven't gotten around to figuring out how to use them. They are ridged heddle looms and I'm intimidated by them. Instead I decided to try out circular weaving which was really simple once I figured out some kinks. Pam from Gingerbread and Snowflakes had a post I had previously pinned, but unfortunately her site is currently down. But through the power of Instagram, she helped talk me through troubleshooting how to do the weaving. I came ... Read More

Twinery and Ruby Rock-It Blog Hop!

Today is the last day of the Twinery and Ruby Rock-It blog hop! You should have gotten here from Denise Hahn If you're new, I would love for you to like my Facebook page and follow on Bloglovin'! I was sent the Oriental Chic collection and my first idea to make origami paper cranes was a bust. The card stock was to thick to easily be able to use for origami. So I decided this was a good time to pull out my new Silhouette Cameo! I remembered a post from Jesse at Art School Dropout where she made a paper planter. I bought the same file she used and ...

Mira’s Birthday Party!

For Evie's first birthday party I made a ton of decorations and then was so busy setting up that I didn't get a chance to take any pictures. I was not going to let that happen this time around, so I got all the decorations up the night before Mira's party so I could get pictures of them all! For the decorations I used a lot of Benzie Design wool felt and a lot of bakers twine from the Twinery. The pinwheels came from Land of Nod, I didn't even realize they sold party supplies until I saw a post on their blog about it. So last weekend we went to Land of Nod ... Read More
