Weekly Wears: Alley Cat

Dress: Dear Creatures c/o Emerging Thoughts;  Tights: We Love Colors;  Shoes: c/o Ugglebo;  Bow: Red Velvet;  Bag: c/o Alphabet Bags 

I'm a Dear Creatures fangirl.  I'm coming to terms with that.  Sometimes I try to play it cool... you know, it's kinda (really) dorky to be SO INTO anything, but this Fall line of theirs is just too good.  I'm pretty much smitten with all of the pieces.  Have you seen it?  What do you think?

Weekly Wears: Day of the Cape

Sweater: c/o Lulu's;  Collared Shirt: c/o ModCloth;  Jeans: Levi's;  Cape: Vintage;  Shoes: c/o ModCloth

I bought this cape during the summer and I've been eagerly anticipating the day I'd get to wear it.  Capes aren't super practical... I mean... you can't really move your arms much and the pockets are maybe on the tiny side, but boy are they cute.  Ugh, I hate myself a little for saying that, but I really do love this thing.  ;))

Posting will be a little on the heavy side this week since we have Internet at home again (yay!).  I'll be back soon!

Mollie Makes Stop-Motion

I just wanted to pop over and share a little stop-motion that the crew at Mollie Makes made with my hedgehog!  I love it so much!

A huge thank you to Helena and Lucille at Mollie Makes for bringing my hedgie to life!  You can check out the Mollie Makes blog here.

Here We Go: Catch Up!

Here's a little bit of what we've been up to this past week or so:

*Spray painting a lot of things! 
*Enjoying the little bits of our home.
*Taking Poesy to her first movie!  (Hope was there, but too concerned with missing any previews to be in the photo.)
*Waking up to rainy mornings.

This is has also been a major recipient of my time:

Ghosts!  I'll have ghosts available in the Etsy shop and the Big Cartel shop starting October 1st!  I'm so excited to be able to offer a good number of ghosts this year!  :)

 I hope your week is going great so far!

I Got Another Job.

I'm so excited to announce that I'm the newest team member over at A Beautiful Mess!  I'll still be busy sewing animals and blogging, but when your dearest friends offer you a job in a fun and inspiring atmosphere, you almost can't say no!  (I couldn't, anyway.)  Here's a peek at my first project:

I know this might seem a little confusing since I've been a contributor in the past, but now I will be working steady hours in the studio and making many more projects.  My first week has been tons of fun!

You can see the full tutorial and downloadable template here.  :)

New Work!

Hi, friends!  Here's a little peek at what I've been up to:

I made a set of fox cake toppers for a very lovely couple.  I can't wait to see pictures of their special day!

I also made a little hedgehog for the cover of Mollie Makes!  You can find the pattern inside, and the best part is this little guy can be made from scraps you have around your house!

The issue comes out September 28 (in the UK).  It was a lot of fun being a part of this magazine!

Have a wonderful day!!

Weekend Roundup

I'm possibly the least qualified person to do an online roundup this week, but it here it is anyway!  ;)

First off, I'm so, so proud of my dear pal Elsie for her collaboration with ModCloth.  I think this dress is absolutely DARLING!

I loved Tieka's Autumn Effect Tutorial for Photoshop.  The end result is so pretty!

I think I may need to acquire this lovely piece of artwork from Paper Sparrow.  It's wonderful.  :)

Maiedae has been one of my favorite blogs for quite a while now and happens to be one of my featured sponsors this month as well.  Savannah's blog is absolutely gorgeous and full of inspiration... I hope everyone out there reads it as regularly as I do!

I hope you all have the best weekend!

Weekly Wears: Pumpkin Spice

Dress: Dear Creatures c/o Emerging Thoughts;  Shirt: Marshall's;  Tights: c/o ModCloth;  Shoes: c/o Lulu's (last season);

Right now I'm sitting here, sipping my pumpkin Americano, enjoying M. Ward playing over the speaker... it just feels perfect.  Sure, I'm sick and I'm blogging at Starbucks (again/still), but I'm enjoying even this little bit of transitional period.  I guess when the weather changes it's hard to feel anything but joyful and sentimental.  I love it so much.

We are still powering through unpacking and our house seems to be magically taking shape.  I've mostly been disconnected from the internet for the past few weeks, so I'm eager to get all caught up and see what all of you have been up to!  There are so many new babies and e-friends moving into new places-- it's an exciting time!
