how to make a custom stamp (and a feather stamped pillow)

metallic feather pillow

Our lovely guest of the day, Cherie from You & Mie, is amazing, y’all. Just a few of her projects that I am smitten with (though it’s hard to choose)- her mini boden jacket knock-off, the oh-so-stylish color blocked tank top, the faux leather clutch remix and the most fabulous of all Fantastic Mr. Fox film [...]

kojotutorial- anthropologie knock off flutter curtains


This isn’t a surprise to you, but my “Repurposed” entry for So You Think You Can Sew Week 2 is the flutter curtains (they’re a knock off of Anthropologie’s Tender Falls Shower Curtain).

anthropologie knock-off flutter curtains (SYTYCS week 2)


“Make new curtains for the living room,” has been on my to do list for months. Anthropologie’s Tender Falls Shower Curtain has been on my pinterest for about that long.

Once upon a time, when I was just discovering the wonderful world of craft blogs, I stumbled upon, and immediately fell in love with, a little spot called mmmcrafts.  Larissa has a great eye for color (love the needle books she’s been making for her shop lately- though it looks like they’re all snatched up!), [...]

kojotutorial- interactive world map

Our family loves maps. Everywhere we go, we collect a map. We use globes in all our decor and our girls would rather look at maps than have a bedtime story (seriously). For awhile now, there has been a huge blank space above our sofa in the living room. I wanted to fill it with [...]
