October Etsy Round-Up

Ah, October. Arguably my favorite month, and not just because it contains my birthday (woo!). In Austin especially, the weather is my favorite in October – still warm and sunny, but not sweltering. Colors transition into my favorite palette, and it just feels like the season of getting things done. And of course there’s Halloween. So many reasons to like this month. So today I have two Etsy collections that speak to me of October – one around Halloween (unavoidable) and one with a muted color palette that makes me think of fall. Modern Halloween Orange Earrings, Drizzled Black Earrings, […]

Reusable Handwarmers

Between sewing lessons improving my skills, and being sort of broke when it came time for buying Christmas gifts, I tried to think of things I could make to give family. Now, my mom is a kindergarten teacher up in Ohio. They have outdoor recesses even in the winter. And my aunt lives up in Michigan, and has two young grandchildren (my second cousins?) that I’m sure love to play outside and in the snow. So when I stumbled upon this tutorial for reusable handmade handwarmers, I thought it was perfect. I had a bunch of coordinating fabric squares that […]

Friday Favorites: Handmade Shops I Love

necklaces

In case you still need to do some holiday shopping, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite online, handmade/small business shops. Of course, they’re good anytime, not just for the holidays. But I’ll use the season as an excuse to give shout-outs to these ladies and their wonderful products:   Mama’s Nest Designs run by the fabulous Tricia. Unarguably one of my favorite shops. I own 7 – SEVEN! – necklaces made by Tricia. If you’ve been following my What I Wore series for awhile, you’ve seen some of them. Anyway, Tricia is awesome to work with! […]
