So I am just way too excited not to share with you my newest Spoonflower fabric design. I know I am a little crazy but it is so fun. I am awaiting my first order of swatches. Yay!
CraftStylish contacted Spoonflower asking for holiday themes designs they will use in a holiday mention of Spoonflower. So here is my submission. :) Let me know what you think!

So I happened upon an amazing new company Spoonflower while making my daily visit to Emily Martin’s blog.

Spoonflower gives individuals the power to print their own designs on fabric that they can then use to make quilts, clothes, pillows, blankets, framed textile art and many, many other things that might surprise you.

Right now they are in the Beta stage so you have to put your name on a list to be invited. And I got one! Yipee! I have been learning tons about Photoshop/Gimpshop and am having so much fun coming up with fabric design ideas. I wanted to show you a sweet example of a fabric design and the finished product.
Here is okiegirl97’s design
and here is the finished work.

I finally sorted through my button collection and added a few piles more. Some vintage some antique. Sorting through beautiful buttons I find myself wondering what sweater or dress they came from. Who wore them? Was it their favorite? Did they hate when their mom made them wear it?

Meet Ureshiitori. She is the newest edition to our family. I made another super amazing plushtastic trade with my friends at Dolls for Friends Jill and Erin. They are a super hero plush making team. Married with 3 busy children they have their hands full. Full of fun and love. Dolls for Friends use mainly reclaimed and recycled fabrics which they use to create amazing creative funky creatures. Each piece has such great texture, they are works of art. I just love how each of their characters has its own story and very layered personality. I am very happy to be called a friend with one of their dolls.
