some recent thrifty book finds

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?

tutorial tuesday: framed fabric corkboard

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.

tutorial tuesday: hand-stamped muslin bags

well, this isn't really a tutorial because it's so simple. it's more of an idea that i've been seeing everywhere.

step 1: buy some cute little muslin bags. most craft stores should carry them. i buy mine online in bulk here. (i use them to package the pocket mirrors in the jellabee shop).

step 2: slip a piece of cardstock inside the bag, like a little cardstock sandwich. this will prevent the ink from bleeding through to the back side. (regular paper is too thin.)

step 3: stamp any old thing you want on the bag. (be sure to let dry overnight before you stuff the bag, just to be sure.)

here's some examples:

a lavender sachet.
valentine's gifts.

an amazing wedding favor.
i love this super easy cute way to personalize any gift bag!

*new* keepsake trio snap clips for jellabee jr...

these last 2 are my favorite.

all of these are listed in the jellabee jr shop for $3.50 each!
tutorial tuesday: fabric circle baby mobile

i really love this tutorial from sew she sews.
such a simple and pretty mobile to hang over your baby's crib.

i love the circles the best, but it would be fun to try with different shapes. and if you made it longer and horizontally, you have a cute, quick garland for a baby shower or birthday party.

saw "the young victoria" a couple days ago...
...and i say two thumbs up!

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.)
