Window Shopping Wednesday – Spoonflower (and a GIVEAWAY!!)

Hi all!  So have you heard of Spoonflower??  Honestly I never had until one of my favorite blogs, Young House Love, featured them HERE.  I love the idea of being able to custom create your own fabric and I especially love it for the way the Petersik’s have used it… creating fabric from their kiddo’s own drawings.  Can you imagine making a quilt out of that someday (or, more realistically, paying someone to make a quilt out of that someday)?  Your kids passing it on to their kids and so forth and so on???  How incredible would that be?

They have all kinds of fabric options – Quilting Weight Cotton, Basic Cotton, Voile, Jersey, Canvas, Sateen, Silk, Twill…the list goes on and on!!!  Even better – they’ve branched out now and even offer Wallpaper and Gift Wrap!!!  You can view an entire list of all of the options here.

Not creative or don’t have kiddos to draw some art for you?  No worries!  They have tons of other peoples creative ideas that you can purchase as well (and they’re pretty darn awesome if I do say so myself).  Go shopping with me!!

Mermaids and Paper Boats

I think this Mermaids and Paper Boats fabric is just adorable.  I love that it’s girly without being all pink-and-sparkles-exploded-everywhere type of girly.

Urban Dragonfly

This Urban Dragonfly fabric would be great in a quilt.

Christmas with Love

I know it’s only February but Christmas is my favorite holiday so you know that this Christmas With Love fabric caught my eye!

Star Constellation

Wouldn’t this Star Constellation wallpaper totally rock if you put it on the ceiling of a kids room?

This Graphic Fall Leaves giftwrap would look absolutely amazing with metallic ribbon.

Cute baby dragon

I know several of my friends kids (and, ok, several of my adult friends too) who would squeal with joy if they received a present wrapped in this Cute Baby Dragon giftwrap.

Retro ski fox and grizzly bear

And last but not least one more Christmas themed item… this Retro Ski Fox and Grizzly Bear giftwrap.  Eek!  So cute!

Window Shopping Wednesday – Woolly Fabulous

I cannot remember how I found this shop but OMG I’m in love.  I just want to order one of everything and call it a day.  Odile, the owner, has wicked talent.  I’m super jealous!!  There will definitely be some of these babies purchased for some lovely ladies I know, and perhaps all of them a few for myself as well.

I know that Christmas just passed but as far as I’m concerned that just means that it’s time to start shopping for this coming Christmas!  I love this felt and zipper holly and berries brooch.  What a unique way to spread some Christmas cheer!!!

Isn’t this felt and zipper bee brooch just the cutest thing?  If you have a friend who is an elementary school teacher I think they’d absolutely adore this!

Ok… mom?  Husband? Are you reading this??? This white felt and zipper bird brooch really needs to find it’s way into my stocking next year ok?  Please?  (she’s got several other colors and types of birds available but I call dibs on this one!)

Know someone that sews?  I bet they’d love this whimsical felt and zipper mushroom pincushion.  Even better, it could double as an ornament with that nifty loop at the top.  Eek!  So cute!

There’s even a red mushroom (a la Mario Brothers) felt and zipper pincushion/ornament.

This one of a kind felt and zipper flower brooch could be worn even in the most buttoned-up work environment.  Wouldn’t this bring just the right pop of color and FUN to a boring black business suit?

Are you into the owl trend or do you know someone who is?  I think just about every teenage / college-age girl on the planet would love this brown felt and zipper owl brooch.  I love the little touches she adds like the little heart branch that this owl is perched on.

There are lots of other nifty goodies and amazing eye candy over at Woolly Fabulous so make sure you go check out her shop today!

Window Shopping Wednesday – Knot and Bow

Do you ever get to the point when you have all of this stuff that you know you should be doing, and even that you want to do but yet you still can’t find the motivation to get it done?  I’m there.  Mostly I’m only in that position when it comes to the blog though.  I have a ton of stuff that I want to write about and tell you guys about but I just don’t feel like putting in the work that it takes to get a blog post ready.  I’m not sure if that’s laziness or just my brain telling me I need to take a break.  Maybe some of both.  Nonetheless… I’m trudging on.  Go me.

I’m one of those people that totally believes that it’s the details that can make or break something.  I love adding that little extra pop to something that is just the cherry on top.  This wonderful Etsy shop (don’t you just love Etsy??) called Knot and Bow specializes in those little accessories.  Come shop with me!

This weeks featured shop:  Knot and Bow

Silver, gold and black & gold  bakers twine.  I’m in heaven.

Gold or gold Silver Glitter Twine DuoBlack & Gold Metallic Baker's Twine

These Red Parcel Gift Tags  would be so cute to use as tags on your Christmas packages this year.  They come in a variety of colors as well (neon pink, manilla, light blue, white, lemon yellow, neon orange, violet, pink, Kelly green, neon red, neon yellow, neon green, true blue, pumpkin, vivid green, gray and there’s even a multi pack)!

These Engraved Me & You pencils would be adorable as favors for a wedding (and totally affordable) or as stocking stuffers for loved ones.

Window Shopping Wednesday – Minted.com

So it’s about that time.  The holidays are upon us and that means lots and lots of parties to attend and throw.  Also, you’ve got to get your Christmas cards out!  Today I’m featuring this wonderful shop called Minted.com – they’re filled with all sorts of paper goodies to get you through the holiday season.

This weeks featured shop:  Minted.com

I love the idea of sending out Thanksgiving cards.  You could also use these as invitations to your Thanksgiving dinner.

Did you have a baby this year?  They’ve got several cards just for you!

Get married this year?  There’s cards for you too!

Have fur-babies instead of real babies?

Want to feature the entire family?

Are you a fun-loving, quirky couple?

Crappy photography skills?  They have lots of cards without photos!

If you happen to get engaged over this holiday season they also have tons of invitations, cards, etc to help you out with your Big Day!

I’m a total sucker for save-the-date cards in postcard version.  I don’t know if I could pick between these two.

I love these thank you notes – they’re versatile (don’t look all wedding-y and you could reuse them any time).

Thanks for shopping with me today!
