The beginning of my creative pursuits

Tomorrow night I have my first sewing lesson/course. I'm kind of nervous but I'm sure it will be fine. I'm going to try making a simple skirt for now. I had fun looking through the pattern books and wished I could one day make my own clothes. I will keep you updated.

Here are some envelopes I have been playing around with. I might put them in my Etsy
This is the one of my ideas. I'm thinking of making a few more of these envelopes. I will most likely have tags? Or a skinny mini note card.

I was playing around with my new Basic Grey stamps. I definitely need some new ink pads. I'm also thinking of playing around with embossing powders. 

This week I'm also getting my tabletop letterpress from Bespoke Press. This picture is a photo of some items I bought from Simple Song Design. Letterpress is beautiful! So I'm quite excited to try my own designs!!

Have a great week everyone xox

Hi Gracie!

Are you learning to sew?!! Oh, I am sooo jealous! I have had the worst urge to learn how to use a sewing machine for a few months now. There isn't anyplace to take a class around here, but I found a book online that everyone says is just the best way to learn without a class. Then .. I just need to find a machine :) I would so love to see what you create!

And look at your darling envelopes! I love the tree branch ones. How is Etsy going for you? I know how much you loved Indie Luv.

Sorry I haven't been by sooner. The flu hit our house very hard, me the hardest. It's fun to see everything you've been up to!
