Keep your eyes open

I was strolling through the thrift store with no real projects in mind, just kinda browsing. I found myself in the curtains area and saw the COOLEST retro print fabric. I knew right away when I saw it that I would deconstruct those curtains and make a dress. I got them home and realized I would have enough for two, maybe even three dresses. So I made a couple summer dresses for my girls. What was once curtains in some one's 60's themed room are now groovy little summer dresses. The moral of the story? Keep your eyes open, you never know what great stuff you may find where you least expect it.

Attack a shop!!!!

The cafemom Etsy team is having a weekly shop attack. This is to help get word out about a handmade merchant. This week is twokazoos. What a cool shop!!! She has great felt magnets and little felt tic tac toe games. There is so much to choose from!!!
So help get the word out, go visit her shop, buy something and tell everyone you know to buy something too. This is a great way to support someone in the handmade community.
