I love Pinterest. A little too much. I can get lost scrolling down through endless recipes, amazing photos and clever tutorials. Sometimes I feel like they created that site just for me, so that I can get nothing accomplished in my day 🙂 But my addiction is getting better. And now I actually step away from all that scrolling to create something I pinned and intended to create. I plan on filling the entire hoop with flowers…or maybe just filling in one half of it. Either way….I guess this is my fall wreath.
So I’m getting things together and getting excited for my first craft fair in Long Beach. The event is to help raise money for mission projects, which is why I was so quick to jump on board. I’m still in the process of figuring out how to display everything, but I got really excited and inspired when I found this old green vintage suitcase for $7 at a thrift store! I was even more excited when I opened the luggage up and found that it was pink inside! (i Sewpose colors are pink and green in case I forgot to mention that part :)) So yeah, it will be awesome to get one under my belt, support a good cause, and meet some new peeps 🙂
Remember when I said that when I moved to CA the goal was to get organized with all of my crafting/embroidery junk…eh…materials? Sure you do. Well I’m not totally there, BUT…I’m getting close. I found a great little desk at World Market (hello new obsession) and I am still in the process of giving every button and needle a proper home. I still have more things to hang, and I plan on painting the shelf on the wall red. But I’m glad to have functioning workspace. This is just in time too…I just got 2 requests for custom pieces 🙂
It’s been a while since I’ve set up a new place. Forgot how long it takes 😉 But at least our bedroom is taking some shape. Just thought I’d share since there is some embroidery hoop love in here.
