After reading the review on Apron Thrift Girl, I had to have a copy of my own. It is an excellent book and a quick read. (I am done with it already.) Added bonus points for making me even more excited about going to the 127 sale in August.
Craft in America I missed the first hour of it and I was highly skeptical after the crack vial necklaces , but, it improved (at least for me) after that.
Hystercine Rankin was so inspiring. Her memory quilt was truly amazing. My favorite line of the series came from her, "How far can a needle take you?" Apparently a needle can take you far, Hystercine. All the way to the White House in fact.
I have been looking high and low for the perfect paper to cover some cheap cardboard magazine files from IKEA. Shortly after Heidi was kind enough to send me a sample of the wallpaper she has, I started finding plenty of possibilities.
I tried several versions, but nothing was really speaking to me. Then yesterday was rainy, so Jack and I went wandering around for a little while and I found this awesome vintage contact paper at a thrift store we rarely visit. It was perfect. I love them. The roses, the polka dots, it almost makes me want to squeeeeeeeee.
In the interest of full disclosure, you can see an abandoned decoupage version on my flickr .
(I think I need a few more links in this post!)
