My Fabric Journal for Artfest

Since we all need to bring a journal for Artfest, I decided to make a fabric cover with the Artfest logo sewn on there. Since i learned this quilting technique from Teesha Moore, the host of artfest, i felt making this type of journal was very appropriate!

ATCs for Artfest

So i am getting ready to go to Artfest and I have made about 100 of these Artist Trading Cards to swap with other artfesters! What you can't see from the photo is that i embelshed them with glitter and sparkley pens. This is my first time going to Artfest so I hope they are good enough to trade.

Lace Knitted Scarf

Sometimes I find knitting very meditative. It occupies my mind enough so I don't get too hooked up in my thoughts or the television. I have made 2 of these "lace" scarves already in brown and blue. i just love them. They take awhile to make because the yarn is so thin (i used cashmere) but it is well worth it. they go with everything.

Gift Boxes

I have made several gift boxes like the one above and each time I feel that I get better at them. This one I made for my mom! These are so fun and easy to make and I think they really add to the gift and in making someone feel special! I basically us ink, decorative papers, brads, stamps and doodling!
