Window Shopping Wednesday – Pink Chalk Fabric

One of my goals for 2013 was to spend more time crafting.  So far, that’s been a success.  I spent one weekend in January crafting and my February crafting day is coming up soon.  I haven’t actually gotten much accomplished… it’s more like sorting through all of my projects that are in some stage of started and figuring out where to go from there.  I’ve made a few things though.  I promise I’ll show you pictures and what not soon.

I have a bootie-load of fabric in my fabric stash so I’m not actually in the market for more.  I’ve succeeded in not purchasing any for several months now but that’s mostly due to avoiding places like Joann’s like the plague.  Haha.

I did run across this cute little shop called Pink Chalk Fabrics online the other day though (completely by accident, I swear) and I thought we could at least virtually shop for some fun fabric.

Window Shopping Wednesday – JulieAnnArt

So I don’t know about you guys but I have a ton of birthdays on my calendar for the next few months.  I swear, more than half of my friends and family were born in September.  And don’t even get me started on anniversaries.  It’s going to take a whole paycheck to send out cards and gifts.  Not that I’m complaining.  In fact, I love giving presents.  I get a total kick out of finding fun stuff to give friends.  I also love to send cards.  I think they’re a great way to send people a little reminder that you love them, especially in this technological era.

I found this adorable shop on Etsy the other day and although the humor is dry I still love these cards.  Super cute.  If you don’t like the dry humor there’s still several cards with adorable hand-drawn illustrations that might be up your alley.  Go check out Julie Ann and her amazing talent!

This could be used as a cute ‘thinking of you’ card for a spouse/significant other or even for a kid if you have one who still crawls in bed with you frequently.

What about this birthday card?  The delivery cracks me up.

Don’t we all wish for these things?  I love this card for a bridal shower.

So I realize it’s a little late for graduation cards but keep these guys in mind for next year!

Face it ladies – if you’ve ever gotten married or been in a wedding you totally know that this is a true statement.  We’re all friends here right?  We can be honest about it!


This is totally a card I’d send to my girlfriends.

If you have a good relationship with your mom like I do then hopefully she’d get a kick out of this…

If you’re single then this would be a hysterical card to send out to your other single friends as long as they have a sense of humor!

I think this might be my all-time favorite card EVER.

Mail a card to a friend today – whether for a birthday/anniversary or just because!
