I’m so very excited!  I ordered some lovely Ann Butler fabrics from Fabric Shoppe on Etsy the other day.  She’s already shipped them, so I’m hoping they arrive today or tomorrow.  Is there anything better than getting new crafty materials??  I’m hoping I’ll be able to make some coordinated pillow sets using these fabrics and some solids.  Does everyone likey?

Have you seen Patricia’s work over at A Little Hut?  She does wall art and cards that are definitely on my ever growing list of crafty buys-to-be.  I particularly love the new alphabet wall art she is working on.  How sweet would some A, B, C wall art in a baby/kids room? 

Btw- I totally tried to make something along these lines for Satin Taffy this past Christmas.  It did not get close to comparing to Patricia’s, but I really enjoyed the process of making it!

Check out Tizzalicious’ workspace!  I love all the color and patterns involved.  This has definitely inspired me to sort out my workspace this coming weekend!

You know that question about if you could have any talent in the world, what would you want it to be?  I have to say that Kristen Doran’s artistic talent might have to be my answer.  I love every print she does, and wish that I could design something as beautiful.  And, the print stays incredible whether it is on a bunny, a notebook, a purse…

I’m totally awed everytime I go to her site, and have to share with you some of my favorite pictures from there:

Beautiful, perfectly packaged notebooks:
