Oilcloth Place Mats

This week I worked up some pretty placemats to brighten our eating area. I bought this pretty print in Austin, and previously used it to transform my air conditioning box into a “table” (nice camoflauge). Since I don’t need an air conditioner in Montana, I once again had the pretty fabric. It was a royal [...]

Hot Stuff: Patchwork Oven Mitts

I picked up some vintage cocktail napkins at a craft swap this summer, and I’d been dreaming of making new hot pads ever since. I finally got my craft room all set up last week, and here’s what happened.
I started by determining a layout and piecing a patchwork square that was as large as the napkin. Next, [...]

Crocheted Earrings in my Etsy Shop

I updated my etsy shop this morning with some earrings I made on the way back to Montana. (It’s much better than writing cover letters) .I have a couple more pairs to post once I figure out how to photograph black thread.  If you purchase a pair, perhaps you’ll have good road trip karma, since they were made in: [...]

Recent Craftiness

Still settling in here…my craft room is coming together, although it needs a lot of organizing. I finally have all of my craft books on one shelf, which is nice! I’m really enjoying Bozeman, although I must confess I haven’t been outside very much (barring my 2 mile walk to the grocery store today. It [...]

Back from Texas

Just a quick note to say we’re back from Texas. The above photo is of a Century Plant we saw in beautiful Big Bend National Park. The plant (which looks kind of like aloe) grows for about twenty five years, blooms (as above), then dies. I saw such an array of plantlife in the desert, [...]

Wrapping Up

After an interesting two weeks in Texas (no one ever figured out what my mystery illness was, thought apparently, and thankfully, it wasn’t lyme disease) we’re about to wrap up and head back to Montana. I have not been home for this amount of time in years, and it’s been so relaxing. I think all of those [...]

Inspiration on the Road: Beading

I finally uploaded some of my photos from the trip down here (all out of order, of course!) and wanted to share these two from the Utah Field House of Natural History. Mostly, the place was full of fossils and dinosaurs, which, after seeing all of the shifting layers of earth on the drive down, is [...]

Imaginary Crafternoon

Since my vacation has turned out to be a lot of sitting around trying to calm a fever (and now, waiting for blood test results. I miss you, health insurance!) I have been thinking about all of the things I would like to make when I get back to my craft room. I purchased some [...]

New Adorn (On Newsstands August 6)

I’ve been pretty darn sick these past few days, so here I am popping in again. Today the new issue of Adorn came to my mom’s house, which was so exciting. I’m used to getting to see the first copies and this time I had to wait like everyone else! (No matter how many layouts [...]

Tiny Choices

Just a quick note to let you know about a great new eco-blog run by two friends of mine: Tiny Choices. Kari has always been my inspiration for doing little things that can help the environment (she composts with worms– in her apartment!), and the blog is about those things. Maybe we can’t do [...]
