Is it Springtime yet?

Monday, January 21, 2013
Everywhere I go, I am seeing signs of Spring...the fabric stores are chock full of bright colored fabrics, clothes are showing up in soft pastels that look like ice cream (yum, and SO tempting to buy the entire outfit right off the display), and Target, well Target has had their swimsuits front and center since Christmas. (For those that know me, don't worry, swimsuits are still my most unfavorite (wow, that isn't a word!) piece of clothing.)

Anyway, what I'm getting at, is that even though retail stores are trying to make us think it's Spring, IT ISN"T!! You know when you go outside and think, 'wow, it's warm' only to look and see that the temperature is finally in the 20's, that it has been COLD!

I've been staying inside, working on my pillow covers that are going to be on P.S. I Adore You in February, and I'm going to let you have a little peek at what I'm sewing...

Does anyone love yellow and gray? Hope so!

Thanks to all those who purchased Temple Treat Boxes from my Etsy shop. I was completely overwhelmed with the love! I have taken them off Etsy for now while I work on pillow covers for a few weeks, but they'll be back, I'm sure. Have a great day and I hope the sun is shining where you are!

Treat Boxes

Wednesday, January 2, 2013
I've had this idea floating around in my head for a while now and finally have it all done and taken care of. You see, I've been into making tiny boxes lately, (although, anything paper and box related are long time pals of mine) and the thought came into my mind that it would be adorable if I could make tiny boxes shaped like temples. I don't know why this came to me, but it did, so I sat down and tried it...and after about 8 fails, I got the box just right. I love it! And love having the urge to make it out of my head. 

I really think they'd be adorable wrapped in washi tape, but, I haven't found the perfect pattern yet, and think the ribbon and twine is cute too. They go with the Mutual theme for this year of "Stand Ye in Holy Places" and I think they'd be adorable to gift to your Young Women's group. They're for sale over in my Etsy shop, check it out!  :)
