a circle book, annual fabric stash acquisition + a VERY cool IKEA hack

I’ve been wandering a bit all over lately so I thought I’d do a little this + that kind of post. I’m settling my grow stands in my studio for all my plant friends and it’s caused some chaos in there that I need to address. With the onset of autumn, it’s time to start bringing the babies back inside to adjust for the long winter.

In the meantime, I’ve got some randoms. Here goes.

Circle Book

I’m addicted to experimenting with little books. I think I like them so well because they are something I can work on from the sofa and I’m enjoying the 3-dimensional goodness of them. Here’s a little circle book that I added some fabric that I had printed at Spoonflower. I’m experimenting with fabric design again too. It’s a love that I just keep coming back to.


My annual fabric stash enhancement

Every year I swoon over the new releases of Halloween fabric. And every year I pick up some more and add them to a stash and lament that I don’t know what to do with them but I must have them. This year is no different. And now I’ve added Christmas fabric to the game. You guys have to help me out, tell me/show me what you make with these beauties!

Because I’m not going to stop buying them. They are just too adorable to resist and I regret nothing.

I’m so doing this IKEA hack!

I saw this on facebook and did that little gaspy thing when you get ridiculously excited over something. Here is the link to the entire how to and the site itself is new to me but I’m going to spend many coffee drinking sessions trolling through it. It’s too cool to resist.

Revisiting Intentional Printing

I’ve started outlining a revision/follow up to the first book I wrote, Intentional Printing. Now that I have three books under my belt, I have a better idea of what I’d like it to be. My plan right now to is self publish the new version, seems that there is a belief that hand printing fabric has a very  limited audience. I don’t know about “very limited” but I will admit it’s a niche. One that I’m thrilled to be part of.

I’m hoping to have an outline done in about another month and need to get rights reversal back from IP before I begin. I am going to give it an updated name, something more obvious of what it’s about. I’m SO looking forward to it! Paint flingers unite!


And that’s all I’ve got right now. Loads of ideas and working through them and just hanging out with you guys. Love ya! 🙂

    You know you have to have two of those Ikea carts. One for fabric and one for plants
    Good luck with the new Intentional Printing – that’s how we met!

    I love that IKEA hack. I have one of those carts, but the top bin is reserved for our cat to perch and watch when I am sewing. If I had see this hack before the “Reserved”, it would be very different. haha.

    Love the little skeletons fabric!
