Well hey there long time no see.

It has been a busy summer here soo far. I thought I would catch you up on what has been keeping me out of the blog world these last couple weeks. I finished my rag rug (which isn't my fav I wish I had had funner colors to work with but alas the local thrift shop was drab )

I sewed some curtains for the girl cave...
I made the hubby hang the book case in my girl cave..

I decided to work on a tear sheet project

I got a candle stick from the dollar store a couple cheap clear plates from a store that starts with W.. and pulled out my silver spray paint and glue gun and viola!! I have a great cute little spot to toss my jewelry and smelly stuff on my dresser!

I have been super thrilled that me and my sister happened to fall into a amazing shop that has opened in my town called Italy Ava that is all re purposed and hand made things. It is amazing and I am soo lucky to be in the ranks of these great artists ! wow! I have put a few things in like the cupcake hats (0f coarse) and...

I also threw together some more upcycled tshirt purses ( I forgot to take pics with the handles on though sorry)

They were fun and are way cuter in person.

I also busted out probably almost a dozen owl cable cell phone / ipod holders by request.

They work great for your androids Iphones or Ipods.

I also started to work on some fall projects for the shop (they are surprises though!) All of these was done plus I read 3 books (not listened to on my ipod but read!) , took a four day trip to the cities ,driving there one other time (nice 6 hours in the car) and having company at the house twice! I am also doing a knit a thon for breast cancer tomorrow.
I am EXHAUSTED I have to climb into bed and watch a movie and finish a project so good night every one !

Ps don't forget to go to Italy avas facebook and like them so you can see all the great stuff she is getting in it is amazing!

  1. So good to see another post - I was beginning to worry about you!

    Love the curtains for the girl cave.

    How did the craft fair go? (I know - seems forever ago.)

    We'd love to have you stop in and join us at knitting when you're in town...
