5 bits of blog goodness

I read a lot of blogs filled with great ideas, DIY’s, lovely pictures, and inspiration.  I want to share some of them with you, because I’m certain you’ll find something to spark your creativity… and you know me, I think everyone could use a bit more creativity.
Here are 5 little bits of blog goodness.
-I love this post on A Merry Mishap, featuring one incredible playroom for children.  I mean, if I had a room like this, I’d never ever want to leave it.  The original article is found here.
- My friend Jessica from A Little Gray inspires me everyday to figure out what in the world is wrong with my sewing machine.  She is always sewing incredible things for her little boy and pretty much everyone she knows, like these cute bags and this super fun play mat.
- I always enjoy seeing the cute projects and inspirations on One Pearl Button, like this little  cosmetic case.
-Reading this blog, Freshly Picked, makes me want to have a working sewing machine all over again, with all the fantastic tutorials like this.
-I enjoy the incredibly, inspiring photos that Lexi shares on Love. Obsess. Inspire.  So many great images like these really make me want to draw more.
I hope you enjoy these blogs.  What are some of your favorites?


  1. a. you are so sweet! thanks for including me in your list!

    2. How have I not been to freshly picked yet?

    C. I can't wait to see this project you are working on involving canvases, yarn, AND cute old people?!?! (maybe they are all unrelated, but either way, pretty anxious to see.)

    d. What kind of machine do you have? would it be expensive to get fixed? I have an old kenmore I could bring you next time we visit my family. It's not the greatest, but it basically works...

  2. Jessica, I have a basic Brother L2125i, I think that's it. I just can't seem to get the lower bobbin device (so technical, I know) to do anything. The needle moves and all but it the bottom thread doesn't feed... nothing moves down there?

    I don't think it would be too expensive, but I don't really have the extra money to fix it right now... I'm trying to see what I can do.

    I really want to sew.

  3. hey, have you seen this? totally a giveaway worth entering:


Here's the thing: I love your comments.
So thank you.

Have a lovely day.
Drink some coffee.
