(the return of…) 10 Things I LOVE Sundays!

today was a lovely Sunday. i got to sleep in, work all day on RVA projects & hang out with Mr. Larson’s family (we even had a bonfire!!!)… it was wonderful!

10 Things I LOVE Sunday: 

1. finallyyyyyyy, i have a new kit! i have been craving a good scrapbooking day & between this and my Italy projects I had lots of fun creative time this past week….



(plushie album patterns)

(boy+girl wood cuts)
(word bubbles & felt hearts)


(my favorite sticker i’ve everrrr designed. it says “I’m so in love with you. Let’s have a pancake party!” and glow in the dark hearts!)







(more of my favorite stickers ever. i got a new printer for these & i love them even more than my old ones…. i designed these with pen and colored pencil and the texture looks SO amazing. we could barely tell the original art from the stickers!! i’m excited about them.)

k… you can see more details on the kit here.
2. making faux polaroids with a free iPhone app.

my good friend, Will, added it to my phone the other day & i think it’s so much funnnnn!


3. Silje’s knitted owl sweater! She’s so rad!


omg… and speaking of knitted beauties… Vivianna made these for our store. i love them!!


4. Listening to Clark Howard on the radio.

(yes… we are very nerdy! so nerdy, in fact, that i named this teddy after him this past week.) 😀



5.our daily Starbucks trip.

Actually, we faithfully support every coffee shop in this town. HA! 😀
6. Possibly my most unattractive photo of all time (that makes me love it even more for some strange reason….)!
7. Polyvore.com
Big THANK YOUs to the person who linked me to this site last week. It’s super inspiring. Here are some ‘looks’ that i created…


i love this kind of visual inspiration! it makes me feel like painting, scrapbooking, making cute pillows for my bedroom & reworking thrift shop clothes all at once! it fills my mind with ideas for creating cute things. 😀

8. Holly’s new tattoo!!!!!!

She is now donning one of my pretty ladies on her right arm.
it’s a huge honor to any artist! i LOVE it!!!
 (She’s a trooper! This tattoo took 6 hours! :D)

10. and the prettiest photo…

  • I’ve been eyeing that owl sweater for some time at Ravelry. I’m very tempted to cast it on soon. I’m also designing some cute knitted bows like the one your friend designed for your store. They are just so cute, they’re irristable !

  • ahhhh I can’t wait to buy a kit!! Its sooo cute 😉 Your so inspiring thank u!

  • Maybe I missed you already posting this, but when is the craft weekend going to be??

  • new printer? i’m jealous…i’m a little disappointed with what i have right now, and they’re new! what kind did you get for your stickers?

  • I heart the tattoo design. Who what of thought your art would be on skin?? You can sign me up to be your next canvas:)

  • i am absolutely in love with your blog! wow! instantaneous inspiration! i am adding you to my faves!



  • I love that tattoo, but I don’t want one. I would love it on a t-shirt instead. Your an amazing artist. You got to do what you love. You have fun friends who also do the same things like you. Sigh…I’d love to be in your shoes for even one day. 😛

  • Would you consider drawing a canvas for my man & I. We will be together 10 years, trying to think of something to get him… Just love your drawings:) Let me know if you would consider it. IT WOULD MAKE ME SO HAPPY!!!!

  • The loft is beautifully done and is almost the best nook of the house.Great furniture pieces to add to the romance there.

  • Brilliant! What a great read. That was a good post – informative but not too heavy. Thanks for taking the time out to write it! I think spirituality is really important too, we certainly agree on that point. A leader without spirituality is missing a key element.

  • I like that saying, thanks!
    Thanks for posting this. Very nice recap of some of the key points in my talk. I hope you and your readers find it useful! Thanks again

  • I really thank to one who wrote this article. I have always been reading and writing texts like this in blogs. Also, I, as a daily writer, present my respects to everyone. I just watched videos like this in research in all areas.

  • And, I’ve usually seen Hanukkah cards that are more “fussy”, perhaps elegant. I wondered if I could do a clean and graphic card. I was really happy with how it turned out. I used a computer font, a Quickutz die and some gems. That’s it.
