First up: this doesn't have anything to do with anything I've done, but I was so inspired and so in love with these plants I saw when I was on a retreat:
I want to live in them!
I got super sew-y and made some bibs for friends who are having babies! It was so fun to mix and match the prints. If you want the tutorial, you can find it from another Jamie Young here!
Then I sewed some fabric envelopes for a friend. You can find the tutorial for these here!
And I started learning calligraphy! I'm just learning from books right now...maybe I'll find a local class some time but for now, I'm just obsessively practicing in a little notebook and learning from an old book I bought used. I ordered Molly Suber Thorpe's book and have browsed it but haven't had time to sit down and read it yet!
Ampersands are really fun! It took me awhile to get the hang of them - as you can see above!
What creative things have YOU been up to lately???
