Hi! Remember me? My membership in the "Infrequent Bloggers Club" must have kicked in. Never fear, all is well on this end. I have several freelance projects going on at once so I've just had my hands full. I haven't sewn anything in weeks, but that hasn't stoppped me from buying handmade things. Here are a few Etsy beauties that became part of a birthday extravaganza package for my younger sister.
Allyson Hill makes these fabulous car litter bags. Almost makes me want to buy a car. The design is really clever and is decidedly more elegant that just using a plastic bag. Or, if you're my dad, throwing used apple cores into your backseat.
These leaf notecards were made by Abbie of Damsel Designs. I'm glad I gave them away as a gift because they are just the kind of card I find too pretty to actually use and I would most likely hoard them for the next fifty years and then my grandchildren would use them to thank people for coming to my funeral. Abbie has closed up shop for the summer as she awaits the arrival of her baby!
Speaking of hoarding, I bought these super sweet potholders from Squaresville at least six months ago with my sister in mind. Aren't they just the friendliest potholders you've ever seen?
And, finally, I want to make a recommendation for www.picnik.com. It's an online photo editing site which I have come to use all the time. I have Photoshop on our workhorse desktop, but when I'm on my laptop and need to crop or re-size images, this is my savior. And I'm in love with the auto-fix button.
