Currently dip dye is in. It’s trendy, it’s in all of the magazines. Yesterday, I got an email from my mom with a trendy dip dyed shirt. But nothing really made me want to go out and buy paint and a bucket until these. I am super loving the dip dye baskets and the super awesome table cloth. Home Depot here I come.
I want to make these, plain and simple. Once it happens, I’m sure I’ll be able to give a full DIY breakdown. But just on first glance, I’m seeing two embroidery hoops (different sizes to fit inside of each other), multiple colors of streams and a hot glue gun in my future. So pretty much, my future sounds awesome.
There are days when you want something pretty to just appear on your doorstep, and then there are those other days. The days when you wished you owned a sewing machine and had every possible crafting item known to man-kind. At the immediate moment in my world, that has come out in the form of packaging. Then I found Knot & Bow on Etsy.
So for all those who love browsing through real weddings or sees awesome glitter twine on a design blog and wonders where they can get something like that, you’re welcome.

Due to work insanity (read: a four day conference exhibit) I will be delayed in getting out fun, quirky valentines. I am leaning toward the above two. That being said, I would really like a valentine (I would settle for a someecard or a blog comment) to distract me as I get to work at 6:20 AM tomorrow. That would be sweet of you.
P.S. So what is the best Valentine that you have ever received?
More information on the above designs can be found on  Oh Happy Day and on  Mer Mag
Conversation hearts. Everyone seems to have a love-hate thing going on with them. So why not make it a step better. Conversation heart cookies.
