Embroidered Sketchbooks

So I have this beautiful linen sketchbook and it’s completely blank and in the nicest white linen stock. I love it but I’ve been thinking I want to do something really special to personalize it a bit more. I’ve also been coming across a lot of beautiful embroidery work lately and the two thoughts intersected and now I really want to embroider this sketchbook.

How can you not want to try it with all the lovely inspirations out there for this kind of project? Wish me luck because I will probably cry if I mess up my lovely sketchbook. Ok. Not really.

My Birthday Gift!

My Birthday was this past Sunday, Decemeber 6th. I turned a WHOLE QUARTER OF A CENTURY! Pretty nifty, eh? And my oh so awesome boyfriend got me this lovely Singer Sewing Machine. Something Ive been wanting for awhile but of course, would never ever splurge on myself on a purchase like this. So it makes this an even more awesome gift because he knows that I would never buy it. And now my new machine sits on my desk waiting to make things. And oh the things I want to make! I dont even know where to start! And I have to admit I’m pretty intimated because I’ve never actually used a sewing machine before.

I love this adorable applique dress I spied over at Cakies. I bet I could try something similar. So cute. I’m sure my nieces would each love one!

Then there’s the headband project from Prudent Baby. This one seems like a good starter project I think. And I do believe I have some cute scrap fabric pieces at home somewhere.

Plus there’s aprons, curtains, mittens, pillo wcases, agh! So many things I want to make. Can’t wait to get started! 🙂

The Perfect Wedding

Well, at least it is to me. For my tastes and personality this is absolutely ideal. Everything is beautiful and has so much personlaity and it still feels fun and modern. Now, I’m completely aware that this wedding is you know, a bit old. Like every wedding blog posted about it MONTHS ago….but I dont care. I’m a rebel. Yea, that’s right. First spotted it via: Green Wedding Shoes.

Royal/T Cafe

The new Royal/T Cafe in Culver City looks awesome and I can’t wait to make it down there next weekend on my “stay-cation” 🙂  It looks to me like it’s a play off of the cake cafe’s in Japan where waitresses dress up like french maids and feed patrons cake and tea. Now, while I found that to be really interesting I’m not sure how comfortable I’d be in a “feed-me-cake scenario”. But no cake feeding goes on at this Culver City location, at least I hope not, that would be awkward…. anywho! Saw these gorgeous photos on Green Wedding while perusing around looking for inspiration while designing my sister’s save the date cards. I’ll post pics of those soon too!
