Paper Goods Resource

Any people into making their own greeting cards? Well, I don’t dabble with the embossing or flocking powder too much, but I came across a “Heat it” craft gun at the local Ocean State Job Lot for $3.99! I’ve seen Martha Stewart us it, so I figured I’d give it a try. Smoked the first couple of times I turned it on, but I’m sure that’s not too unusual.

So any of you Boston locals, I found mine at the Norwood Job Lots. I know they have various locations around town.

Quilter’s Buzz

Okay…so I don’t really consider myself a Quilter, but I just came across the Quilter’s Buzz website and was amazed at what a great fabric resource it was. There’s tons of information about Amy Butler and Denise Schmidt (both who’s work I drool over).

The site also introduced me to Heather Bailey’s work…check out her pics on flickr. She also has some great new patterns debuting Fall 2006 from Free Spirit.

Back to the discussion of Quilting though… I would love to attempt a Log Cabin pillow like Lisa over at A Bird in the Hand creates. I know certain family members would really appreciate it as a Christmas gift! Here is the research into patterns that I have done so far: Any thoughts?

I have tons of scrap fabric left over from projects that I can put to good use. I am just so bad with cutting straight lines! I’m worried that’s the key to quilting…or at least to making your life easier.

First Post

Alright…so I am busy trying to rebrand the Minty Print site, shopping cart and blog. Oh, and did I mention get ready for the South End Open Market that I am doing on October 1st? Man, when it rains, it pours.

So while I am trying to finish all that up, I figured I should go ahead and get this Blog a rollin’. I added a bunch of links of other cool, crafty blogs that I visit (why be a lurker any longer?).

Awesome new frangrances in at The Body Shop. I love the Minteva one; it smells like not just fresh flowers…but specifically a fresh flower arrangement (if that makes any sense). Plus they are so affordable that you can by more than one. The line is called Invent Your Scent, so they encourange mixing and matching. I haven’t been that bold as of yet, as the other scent I got was Chymera which has much warmer tones.
