Creative Links…


I posted Wednesday about some QAL’s and CAL’s I am currently following.  I thought (after I posted of course) maybe someone might want to join one now.  It’s half way through the year (yikes!), so I can imagine joining something this late in the game would make ya’ll feel way behind!  That’s not what I wanted to accomplish!
So, I looked around the great inter-webs and found some great QAL’s/CAL’s that start in the middle of the year!  Yay!  These are really a fabulous way to learn new sewing/stitching techniques and tips.  It’s also a great way to meet people who share a love for creating.   Just click on the links below to sign up!

I was checking out my Pinterest page and noticed that the pin below has been repined (or saved) more than any other of my crafty pins.  It’s about making paper beads!  I think I’m going to try this out using some of the fancy, textured paper I’ve been hoarding saving.  I’ll let ya’ll know how it turns out!

One more great link!  I just got this great new pattern from the UpCraftClub, the Tea House top and dress.  It looks like a great summer staple and it’s on sale right now!


Oh!  If you got a “blank” email from me today, sorry about that!  I was just testing something out for the website and completely forgot other people would see that!


Until next time, what are you doing to survive life creatively?
