just realized i ordered 2x the amount of fabric i need.  arg, thats what happens when an almost-architect enters the world of sewing... thinking in terms of feet and ordering in yards, darn.

coming soon: kalea's travel kit

kalea is coming!  kalea is coming!  stay tuned for my DIY baby shower gift - it's quite possibly going to be the cutest thing ever.  below is a sneak peek...

DIY No. 07 - valentines for him

don't you love when a project comes out just how you envisioned?  :-)  the chip board gives a nice masculine/rustic texture and the red interior peeking through a cut out heart is just enough "i love you" to keep your man from blushing.  overall clear, concise and super understated...which i think makes it all the more romantic :-)

these little darlings were made by stitching fabric hearts to white cardstock. inspired by a bright idea, these valentines are simple with just the right amount of girly.
