Great News!

I have fun news to share...

1 - While I am in Italy, my sister, Victory, and my dear friend, Tori, have agreed to guest blog. The theme will be all Italian, in honor of my trip. I can't wait to see what they post.

2 - The collaged candles got some Dollar Store Craft love this week. Check out the fun blog -
there are always so many fun things to do at Dollar Store Crafts. I'm a beach glass collector, so I think I will be trying this one out soon, and I also LOVE using my washable swiffer refills made from a fleece baby blanket I bought at the dollar store.

3 - I've been a sewing fool! I seem to have gotten the idea that I need to parade around on my romantic vacation with a whole new wardrobe... and have been sewing dress after dress... I'm just loony. Will post some shots of the latest one later today.

4 - I've sold out of my scrap boxes! Wow. After 24 (maybe 25) flat rate boxes getting shipped out to you all - my scrap pile is down to 4 bags of scrap - no longer 10. I made sure each box was full to the brim with scraps (they weighed more than 5lbs each!)- and did m
y best to ensure that each one had a fun and exciting variety of good sized pieces so
people could have fun making things. I can't wait to see some of the creations made. If I am feeling the need to spend another week cutting, folding, shipping, etc... we may revisit that whole concept again. It sure was fun while it lasted. Thanks for taking part!

5 - one question. If I were to bring 1-2 of the following skirts for my trip to Italy... which would you suggest? And why? (just so you know, these 4 are the ones I wear most of all, though my closet boasts about 3 more)
The Original

But Seriously


Out & About

one of the red ones because it's your favorite color and Hollywood because it'll go with anything - including that great wrap that you pick up at the outdoor market

which wrap? hmmm... have I blogged about my thai silk wraps that I bought at the Night Market? or are you thinking of another?
I love that you know my wardrobe, Cat - and we've never even met face to face!

I posted a blog yesterday about the "scrap" fabric that you gave me...and pics of a few of the things I've made with it...
I'm not good at linking, but my blog is and it is the first post that comes up titled, "Bits and Pieces...and a giveaway"

Thanks again!!

But Seriously or Out and About. Having never been to Italy, I can say expertly say that they would fit in very nicely. :-P They seem to have more of a vacation feel to them... I mean, one of them IS called Out and About!

Hey Libby! (Sorry for the sporadic posts!) I'm all for "Out and About." It looks as though you could have pulled it out of the closet from an old Italian villa. Very vintage-European-chic. :) The pattern would also look great in b/w photos.

Have a WONDERFUL TIME! Also, don't forget to hit up the Vivoli gelateria near Santa Croce. Though it isn't exactly like you can hit a bad gelateria in Florence...

I am now wiping the drool off of my keyboard... :P Safe travels!

Hollywood and out and about - both stylish - B&W is always good and well you have to take a red one because it is completely you. Both can be worn with the same tops as well. Have so much fun - check out my flickr. I made B her first dress - inspired by all our talk in Jan. Anna Katherine
