Homespun Parties + Events Studio

You can now buy Quivver arrows in a brick and mortar shop! I'm super happy to announce my arrows can be purchased at the Homespun Parties + Events StudioWhoo-Hoo!

They have an amazing looking space that's "an inspiring place to come read our books, drink tea, use our FREE wifi, learn a new crafty something, rent our photobooth or our space, and shop local + handmade for that special gift."  Oh, I wish I could drop in and check it out in person. I really love that it's not just a store, but multi-purpose creative space!

Old World Primitives

Are you ever completely bewildered when you find yourself liking something so completely out of your normally accepted style range?

I can't even remember what I was looking for on Etsy when I discovered these ornaments by Old World Primitives. I find them so compelling for reasons I can't explain! They make me giggle!

Let's buy some!

Erin from operation paper cut and Houzz just pointed me in the direction of society6, another great place to buy art inexpensively!

I particularly like "Voyage Home" by Joe Carr

and "Wild Dog" by Corinne Reid

New Finds: Marimekko Kaivo & More

I love going to garage sales outside of metropolitan areas, prices are more reasonable and people aren't aware of the trends so it's still possible to get a good score! When I was home a few weeks ago in upstate NY, my mom and I hit up a few sales and here's what I scored for $5, yes - $5 for all of it!

String/twine tin with the hole on the top - been wanting one of these for a while, plus tiny metal tool drawers which are perfect for sewing supplies!

I also got what I think is a big piece of Marimekko Kaivo fabric - as far as I can tell, it's the real deal, except there's no markings on the selvage edge (?) but is definitely screen printed and good quality cotton, so I can't imagine it's a knock-off. (Are there fabric knock-offs? does that even happen?) Anyway, I plan on making a small throw blanket out of it!

While trying to look u p more info about the fabric, I stumbled on this interesting book about sewing/crafting with their fabrics - with patterns!!!

Marimekko Surrur Book: Make Your Own Marimekko: "Named for the humming sound of the brain or a sewing machine busy at work, the Marimekko Surrur Book is filled cover to cover with clever ideas, instructions and patterns to create clothes, toys and accessories from the larger than life color and imagination of Marimekko."
