{Fun Finds} For the new year…

I feel a like I’m jumping into the new year in slow motion. I have so many ideas swimming around in my brain but I need some time to sit & ponder a bit before I start in on anything new. Sometimes just letting my brain ebb & flow between creative thoughts is what I need. One of the things that I like doing to let me brain wander is create an Etsy Treasury. This time I started with these three cool items & went from there. 

I got Sayer a smaller version of this Peg & Awl chalkboard & it’s fantastic. With kiddo’s love of pencils & drawing, I couldn’t help but be drawn to these adorable & cozy scarfs from Sara Carr. I also really love these prints from Blanca Gomez & can easily envision them on our wall.

Happy Monday!

{Fun} a new year…

When I saw these recycled letterpress paper chain kits by Something’s Hiding In Here, I was immediately smitten with the packaging & the idea. It inspired me to make a “New Year” treasury of images, textures, & colors that I’m drawn to in 2012. Happy Chinese New Year – bring on the dragon!

{Fun Finds} It’s looking a lot like… December.

So, today was that super hyped shopping day – Black Friday. While I know it’s good for the economy, it’s just not my thing to brave the crowds or big box stores for that matter. Instead of dealing with the long lines & craziness, I locked myself in the studio & worked on orders. It was nice actually- I was sort of oblivious to the hubbub going on outside. I did need to get my fix of looking at cool things though, so tonight I decided to make another treasury to celebrate small businesses. It’s funny how these collections sort of put themselves together. I was particularly struck with texture, pattern, & color in this one- it’s my December dream list of characters & props. Oh, & the number “36” isn’t particularly significant. Sayer is just really into numbers lately & is counting all of the time & posting numbers all around the house. So that painting was for him. Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

{Everyday Inspiration} I love paper…

It’s been a year since Cardboard Man was officially born. The wonderful, cardboard Halloween costume that my husband came up with last year really became his hutch studio uniform & Cardboard Man is really who he becomes in the studio. This treasury is all about my love of all things made with paper & dedicated to Chris on this weekend before Halloween. Hope you are enjoying spooky festivities & making cool things with paper this weekend!

{Fun} little cheerful…

While on vacation, I found myself mindlessly surfing Etsy one evening. I suppose out of habit more than anything. Warm, happy colors & characters were catching my eye & a few minutes later, Little Cheerful treasury was created. The vintage Humpty Dumpty fabric started it all.

{Fun Finds} little girls…

I’ve been spending a great deal of time on Etsy lately & got a bit distracted last night as I was uploading things into the shop. It was really hutch studio’s sweet room & The Measure’s adorable petticoat that got me started on this vintage inspired, girly treasury.  It was a much needed break to think about who the little girl would be, that would occupy a room like that-  in her sweet petticoat & boots. Hope you had a nice weekend!

{Fun} mellow yellow…

Yellow is the color of the day here. I find that I really gravitate towards the happy hue. I needed to mellow out last night & I decided to create an Etsy treasury (making them is sort of how I go to my  “happy place”). So here you have it-  a summery yellow collection of things that caught my eye. Speaking of yellow… the sun is finally out here in the NW – so Sayer & I are going to go outside & enjoy it! Hope you have a nice weekend! What colors are you gravitating towards lately?
