Two New Projects

I have a whole list of projects that I need/want to post here.  Today I'm going to post two of my favorite recent projects.

The first is a set of tags.

I love projects that I can finish in one short sitting.  For these I used a combination of Crate Paper's Brook line and Elle's Studio tags.  Of course I added distressing ink to the edges and misting on the tags.  

My wonderful friend (and sister-in-law) Val came to California this weekend for her baby shower.  Matt and I can't wait to have another little nephew!  Unfortunately I couldn't attend the shower because I was in Arizona for Coralanne's wedding but I wanted to make sure she had something from me to open there.  I made her a set of burp cloths.  I got the idea and basic pattern from Susan Weinroth and changed it up a bit.  I like the look of sewing not in straight lines like I do in my paper craft projects.  I think it makes these sweet burpies a little more whimsical and they go along nicely with the bird.  

I wrapped the burpies up with some raphia...

and then added ribbon and a handmade tag to complete the look.

Both the tags and the burpies will be available at my etsy store that is opening this summer.  If you'd like to order any before then, let me know.  

As always, thanks for reading!  


  1. Huh! I was sad I didn't get to see you at the shower. The burp cloths were ADORABLE. Is it crazy that I want to order some for babies I don't have yet?! You're so talented, Huh! :)

  2. Thank you!!! I miss you! I was so sad I couldn't go to the shower. I tried to message you back on good reads but couldn't figure out how to do it! How are you doing??? No, not crazy at all :)
