I am obsessed with notebooks and always have one with myself. Last summer I got a really awesome one in Toronto with sections. It was great but I have not been able to find another here. So when it ran out, I ended up just making my own buy printing out some lists. It was basic but pretty cool. It got my wheels turning.
I was pressed for time so I went on Etsy and Pinterest to search out some printables. There are TONS of them free and for a fee. I printed some of these file tabs, and these pages. And then I just got stuck at the ahhh-design website. Amanda Hawkins has all kinds of super cute printables. I ordered her calendar printables as well as printed a lot of her freebies.
I made a few other pages in my Photoshop program that were customized as well. Then I added some graph paper and some lined paper. Then for fin I added some colored papers. THEN, I found these awesome file folders at Target. I cut them apart to make dividers and covers for the notebook. Once I had the entire stack printed and ready to go I took them to my local print shop to have it spiral bound.
I have to say, it has been super fun to use. As soon as I fill this one up, I will be making more.
My patterns are usually 6.95 and 9.95 but until July 4th they are marked down. Yipee! You can get any of them you've been thinking about for 5.00 and 8.00 all month long. They can be found in my Jennifer Jangles Shop and my Jangles Etsy Shop.
So it's been a few months and several other projects later, but I have finally finished my Sewing Machine Applique Quilt. Now I haven't had time to "officially" photograph it but here are some shots from my porch.
This is a quilt from the blocks that are from my Sewing Machine Wallhanging Quilt. I stitched up 12 instead of 4 and then added a top and bottom border of about 8 inches. I sewed all of the blocks at once, but once it got to piecing the blocks together...well it ended up on a shelf. When I actually got to it, it took no time at all to assemble.
I am having a PDF sale just in case you need to pick one up.
So I am a bit obsessed with notebooks. I always have one with me. They are great for jotting down ideas, lists, and more. These are four notebooks I had made at my local print shop. They are small and fit in your purse kind of notebooks measuring 4.25" x 5". I got some extras made up just in case you needed some notebooks as well. You can find them in the Jennifer Jangles shop and Etsy store.
Then while I was sprucing up the shops I decided to create some wholesale packs. You don't have to be a store to purchase these. I have grouped them together in larger quantities and then marked them down.
I went ahead and did the same thing with buttons. You'll find some great buttons packs in there as well.
I posted a picture of my craft suitcase over on my Facebook page and some folks got excited. So here is my really long picture loaded post on my craft suitcase. I always take some kind of box filled with my craft supplies when we travel.
I had seen a few craft suitcases on Pinterest, and knew I needed my own. Because I LOVE to shop on Etsy that's where I went to start my search. I came across this little suitcase and scooped it up.
It's got room for all sorts of fabrics, ribbons, trims, beads, and more. I decided on a cork board for the top of the case that way I could pin things I was working on or ideas and sketches.
I made push pins by taking little tie tack pins and gluing buttons onto the pins.
They work really well and now I think I need more for cork boards at home.
It's all ready to take along on a camping trip in Lucy.
Here are some details of what I did on the inside. The case was in really good shape and I didn't really need to do anything. It was just a little boring so I had to spruce it up.
I cut a paper template of the bottom of the suitcase for my pattern. I ironed Therm-o-web's iron on vinyl onto the fabric to make it a surface that would stay clean.
