Today I’m really excited to show you what I did with some vintage pillowcases that I got from a friend. I bought these not knowing what I’d use them for and then the thought occurred to me – they’d be really cute as a purse! Ready to see how I changed a pillowcase into a tote? Here we go!

It never ceases to amaze me the way that God gives me exactly what I need at any given time. I have been blessed with a growing business that has kept me busy since I went full time as a WAHM. In fact, the weeks have come to the point where I’m working every day during Little E’s naptime to keep caught up (and I am so grateful for that). Until this week. Sales have really slowed, and I have no doubt that God gave me this downtime to renew and refresh and remember creativity FOR MYSELF.
It’s been so long since I’ve just created for me. Not to post a tutorial. Not to sell. Not to give to someone else. Just creating freely without taking pictures every step along the way. I have been so annoyed at myself lately for feeling like every craft I do I have to photograph instead of just enjoying the process.
So that’s what I did a few days this week. Sure, there was some creative time where I made OOAK pieces for the website, but yesterday was entirely about being creative to bless my family and myself. I woke up and made the family cranberry-orange scones. While Little E was napping I made a bag for myself from vintage fabric that my grandma gave me.
I made banana bread and a skirt. It was an absolutely wonderful, relaxing, creative, somewhat selfish day. And I think that’s exactly what I needed.
I’m refreshed and ready to create beautiful pieces again for friends & strangers to enjoy. I’m ready to bless others with the gift God has given me through creativity. I’m so grateful for the lack of business God gave me the past few days. But now I’m ready to work (and I’m going to TODAY)!
A few items of business:
~ I’ve posted a ton of new items this week, you can see them all here
~ I have sponsor spots left for September – sign up now and you’ll get the last week of August for free!
~ I would LOVE to have some guest posters again on the blog – if you have a craft you’d like to share please contact me for a possible guest spot.
~ In order to make room for new items, I’ve clearanced out a bunch of stamped items. Some have just one left in stock so be sure to check on your favorites!
Side note: I do have a fabulous new “line” of items for next week. It’s not a Fall line, just a compilation of many new ideas going around in my head that all came to be at the same time. They don’t all fit together, but they are all new and are all FABULOUS. I can’t wait to show them to you! Three were photographed today and the others have to be made this weekend. I hope you’re having a great week!!
