i love polka dots

I went to a fabric store this weekend and all I bought were stripes and polka dots (without even realizing it until I got home!)  I love stripes and polka dots.

Here is a little polka dot inspiration (in case you love polka dots too!)

shop update: distressed wood wall hangings

I've been playing with wood and paint and power tools (and I still have all my fingers).

I made some smaller versions of this project for sale in my shop.

I've loving playing with wood right now.  I have so many more ideas and a pile of wood in my garage!

smash book: new stuff

Part of the goal of my smash book project is to use scrapbooking supplies I already own.  However, I caved and bought a few new things that I "needed".

1. I bought these Smash book bands to hold the book together when it starts getting too full.  I have to admit I only bought this for the striped band.  I have a hard time resisting anything striped lately.  Actually I am having a hard time resisting all the cute Smash Book branded accessories in the scrapbooking aisle at the craft store.

2. These are library card envelopes that I bought to use as pockets for little bits of paper I might want to save during the year.  I bought plain envelopes that I can decorate however I like.  Only $5 for 50 envelopes is a deal when it comes to scrapbooking supplies!

3. Believe it or not I did not own any washi tape.  I'm not sure how I missed that trend.  Making up for lost time I bought some cute polka dot, zig zag, and numbered tape.
