No, I don't get to go to CHA this summer. Let's be honest. Between J coming home and an impending (less than 2 weeks away!) move to Rhode Island...it just wasn't the best time.
I have tentative plans to be at CHA 2013 Winter, though. YAY!
I have been feeling the creative spark returning. I have a desire to do and make and get messy. And I love that I'm now doing it on my own terms!
So here is what I've seen around the web...and what I've fallen in "deep like" with.
Crate Paper On Trend. I love every single bit of this one. Every single bit. Yes, even the animal prints. I love the colors,the patterns....I need all of this and I plan on purchasing it all:
Crate Paper Acorn Avenue. This one is a bit cutesy for me. I don't "do" animals so much...but parts of it I really love. I'm sure it's b/c I miss Sassafras so much. I love seeing Tim and Beck around so much this year (Crate,SC,BasicGrey):
Amy Tangerine. I love everything Amy does. These new books are at the top of my list:
American Crafts. I've never done a December Daily and I don't know if I ever will. But I can see myself using these tags for EVERYTHING. Crafting,home decor,gift wrapping:
Dear Lizzy Fifth and Frolic. It's no secret that almost everything Elizabeth designs is right up my alley, and this collection is no different. I particularly adore the embellishments and the darling albums:
Pebbles Seen and Noted. The colors? Enough said.:
Jenni Bowlin. I have loved feathers for so long and I have tried to make my own to no avail. These are LOVELY:
KI Memories. So happy KI is back and adorable as always. The second washi from the top is my favorite:
Simple Stories. There is an overwhelming amount of product coming out from Simple Stories. And I don't overwhelm easily. HA! The Sn@p stuff really caught my eye,though. Love these sticker sheets:
Webster's Pages. Okay, I don't know what I will do with these,but since when did that ever stop me? I want. hahaha!:
Lily Bee. Kristen is really consistently designing some awesome stuff lately. I especially like these cute doily journal cards:Cosmo Cricket. I hate to say this because I loved the Cosmo of the past. But...I don't know...I'm just underwhelmed this time around. Too muted maybe? But canvas number brads? Hello lover:BasicGrey Lucille. This shouldn't surprise any of you who know me. Vintage goodness. Graphic patterns,feminine and all around lovely. I love Lucille:Pink Paislee City Sidewalks. I admit it. I am a tag JUNKIE. I must add these to my stash. The Artisan stuff intrigues me too, but also scares me, as I'm not so good at techniques:
Farm House Paper Co. This is a new company I saw on 2peas. This is one of only 2 sneaks they have released, but I do have to say that it makes me eager to see more:
Maya Road. Oooh,hello floral fabric tape. And stick pins,and bows:
Studio Calico. Again, I love feathers. And teal. And numbers:
My Mind's Eye.I know, I know. I've already told you that I'm obsessed with The Sweetest Thing. Here are my favorite pieces. Sigh.:
Prima. Prima is much to frou frou for me these days. But I have to admit that these little wooden buttons are precious:
Hope you've had a beautiful and blessed weekend.
