been busy

i haven't posted in a while, but i have had alot on my plate lately. we've been working on finishing/furnishing our basement, working on some design projects and just trying to keep up with life in general. but, in between all of that work i have been able to get a few moments of joy such as purchasing these pretty cards at the egg press sample sale...
...making a pillow for my friend/co-worker Katie's baby room...
...and wrapping it and other baby necessities in colorful bags to match...
...scoring some great buys from bolt and fabric depot. did anyone go this past weekend? all cotton prints were $5.99/yard! note: the red polka dot fabric i bought from chelsea. what a lovely person with a great blog to boot!
also portland peeps...paper source is coming to nw 23rd avenue in august 2008! for those of you who are not familiar with this awesome store, they carry a huge selection of paper and envelopes in many hard to find sizes and are available in the the most beautiful saturated colors. they also have a nice selection of japanese papers and diy kits. i designed wedding invitations and programs for my friend/co-worker alissa and we bought all of the paper + envelopes online from paper source. i'm so happy that they are coming to pdx!

Hi Bernadette!

It was fun to meet you!I had no idea about Paper Source- thanks for the heads up. All your projects look really great. You are seriously a multi-talented crafter!

Hello Bernadette! It was a pleasure to meet you yesterday at Second Friday (I'm the photographer with the mini prints you purchased). I went to that store SCRAP the other day and scored a bunch of upholstery samples. Got big plans for them.

Once I find time and all.^_^

I hope to see you around again! Good luck with everything!
