I'm moving!

This week I am moving! After a year and a half of living in my mom's basement, I've finally found a roommate and a cute duplex to move into! It may sound odd, but I've really loved living with my family this past year and a half. And if my room wasn't a cold, dark, damp, basement- I'd never want to move out! Luckily, I'm only moving a few blocks away. This is perfect for me as I didn't want to change neighborhoods. I wanted to stay close to my mom and my boyfriend and also keep my bicycle commute to work a short trek. The thing I'm most excited about is unpacking all the boxes of stuff that I haven't seen in a year and a half! It will be so nice to use my own kitchen stuff, my own furniture, and also decorate a new space. With that I'd like to leave you with some home interior inspiration...

Vintage Christmas

So I know its Black Friday and everyone is out doing crazy shopping. I personally am not at all interested in big department stores, no matter how cheap their products may be. Instead, I'm spending my day getting started on making my christmas gifts. Who would want a package of 50% off socks when they could have a knitted handmade pair? (Not that I know how to knit socks, but you know what I mean).

I love making people gifts and I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite sources for gift-making inspiration- vintage craft magazines. This one is McCall's Christmas from 1970.

Don't forget! If you live in Portland, to stop by the GIVE Handmade Sale on Sunday. Come by my booth and say hello and do some holiday shopping! 10% of local artist's sales will be donated to the Oregon Food Bank! Happy weekend!

Artist of the Day: Sia

Sia is a musician from Australia. I bought her first album years ago, a purchase I'll admit I made solely because of her album art. I loved the image of her with a fist full of crayola markers, coloring her face. Luckily, her music was just as compelling as her imagery.

I'm excited again for her newest album! Look at this album art! Any girl that wears pipe cleaners in her hair is immediately cool in my book. I love seeing people spreading the crafty love in unique ways.

Her music videos are just as quirky crafty as she is...

Check out her website: www.siamusic.net

PS. I will be announcing a little giveaway later this afternoon, so be sure to check back!
