hi, i'm melany and mom to a baby girl named penny. whenever she's asleep (or let's face it, watching cartoons...), i love to make things for my etsy shop. i also love to read, stalk design/craft blogs and bake (not cook). this blog is just for crafting/photo/media/ design inspiration...basically anything that looks pretty good to me.
i love vintage kids books. the illustrations are so classic. i'm always on the hunt for books like these to make some cute pocket mirrors. and the books are ususally damaged (with scribbles or pages torn out) so i don't really feel too bad about cutting up a book...and i save everything, so for the pages i don't use, i was thinking it would make some cute scrapbooking accents, or to frame and hang on a wall. waste not, want not right?
i really love the colors that no fuss fabulous chose for her framed fabric corkboard. i'm ususally such a monotone color chooser, but i always love teal. such a clever idea to layer some fabric over the corkboard. although i do like plain corkboard, too. and don't let the corkboard part scare you, you can find it at any office supply store, or even walmart and target, and trim it down to size.
i need to make one of these, instead of having little bits of important paper floating around the computer desk. that might be nice.
it wasn't your typical harrowing period peice, it was very refreshing actually. it details the beginning of victoria's ascent to the crown. she's only 17 when the king dies and faces pressure to assign a regent until she's deemed old and wise enough to rule.
i thought emily blunt did very well, and her relationship with rupert friend was very sweet. the costumes and sets were gorgeous and overall, it was just a very pleasant movie. so...RENT IT! (we redboxed it for a dollar.)
