Anyway, today's mini treasury's theme is one of my favorites! Its theme is Needlecraft! Obviously I'm slightly biased, as am I a sewer, but I still think it's a really cool category. I thought this might be a difficult treasury to make, since I figured most of the needlecraft pieces would be in the needlecraft category, but boy was I wrong! There are so many talented needlecraft artists in all of the categories it was actually hard to choose which pieces to use, rather then it being hard to find items to use at all. :) And without further a due, here is today's mini treasury! Enjoy!
Oh and I'm reposting the coupon for the Craft Fair in Ocean Grove, NJ this weekend. In case you missed it!
You can check out more info on the craft show in my last post here. Wish me luck! I'll probably post one more time before the show, but if not I'll see you all next week! :)

Wednesday I got a lot done including posting a bunch of vintage pieces & getting some descriptions written up. And today looks good for pictures (finally) so hopefully I'll get a bunch of stuff posted today and tomorrow as well! I also finished to new ornaments, a mask and a sun! They came out cute!
Also, there is only a week and a half left before the craft fair! And I'm not ready. :( I have a bunch of little stuff to make up, plus I just realized that all my table decorations are packed and in my attic! But I'm not panicking yet! That can wait till next week. :)
Anyway (long post today), in and amongst all of the stuff going on this week, I did get another mini treasury made up! :) This one is based on the Paper Goods category. I like the way the colors turned out on this one, and I hope you do to! Enjoy! :)
And of course, here's the link to the big treasury. :)
Since the craft show is sneaking up on me quickly, I guess I should give you guys some more information on it, in case you live in the area and would like to come and see my stuff in person. :)
The craft show is on September 4, in Ocean Grove, NJ right on the beach! :)

Just print this out, and bring it with you to the show. And if you forget it, that's okay too. Just mention you saw the coupon on my blog. :) There were a lot of people last year, and hopefully the weather will be nice and there will be plenty of people there again this year! Hope to see you there! :)
Okay that's enough fooling around for today. Time to get back to work! ;) Have a great day! :)

This one was actually a little tricky, because it was based on the Patterns category. What I ended up doing was using two different types of items. Half of the pieces were made using upcycled sewing patterns and the other half of the pieces are patterns or tutorials. I think it turned out really cute! I hope you like it!
And if you think that the mini treasury has neat stuff in it, you should check out the big treasury that matches it! :)

And of course the other thing I've been up to is my treasury making. :) Today's mini treasury is based on half of the Plants & Edibles category. I figured since they are two different things I'd give them two different treasuries. Enjoy! :)
here! Have a great day! :)

Anyways, today's mini treasury is inspired by quilts all over Etsy. My mom collects quilts. She has a million of them! So it was interesting to me to find quilts on Etsy that weren't really quilts. :) Enjoy!

So I thought this year it might be fun to remake some of the little advent ornaments into full sized ornaments! :) The first one I did was the easiest:
Red Felt Heart Christmas OrnamentI'm thinking of make up a pink one and making a listing for a pick your own color heart listing. We'll see. :) Then I moved on to a slightly more complex one (and my favorite from the calender):
Snow Globe with Red House Felt Christmas OrnamentThis was a fun piece to do, though for some reason, I had a heck of a time with the base! I just couldn't decide how I wanted it to look. But I think it came out really cute! :)
Then I made up a couple new pieces. I while back I had bought some yummy colored felt from TheDailyPincushion. I used some of it to make my sushi pincushions and ornaments, but the rest got lost in the shuffle when we moved. While the kids were sick, one of the things I did was organize my workspace a bit better, and in the process I found all my cool colored felt! So I decided to put it to good use and make this:
Strawberry Hand Sewn Felt Christmas OrnamentIsn't that strawberry felt delicious? :) I must have been in a food mood, because the other piece I made with the new felt was: bacon!
Felt Bacon Breakfast Hand Sewn OrnamentYeah, I'm not exactly sure why I made felt bacon either, but it turned out really cute! And on that note, I've made up a little bit of bacon heaven, for your enjoyment! Please don't eat the pictures!
bacon treasury! I hope you're hungry!
That's it for now. Have a yummy day! :D
