Rainbow Pancakes

Rainbow Pancakes, originally uploaded by death by cupcake.

I saw this on Flickr - isn't it amazing?! Eliana had green shamrock pancakes for breakfast this morning, but these beat those hands down! I want to make some!

Vintage Spring Banner

A new fiber, paper, and metal mercantile opened up today in Bozeman... Simply Fresh Arts! I'm excited about it! The owners are 3 of my friends, so I was up there taking a peek and giving a small hand last Thursday when I was inspired by all the beautiful products. Lots of vintage, lots of shabby chic, lots of fun! I came home and made this over the weekend:

The illustrations are from a book I have from the 1890's, the gems are from a necklace that was my grandmother's, the flowers made from another vintage book and hymnal... I'd been wanting to mix crochet with paper art, so I gave it a try on this project and I like it! I took it to the store today to show Kristii, since I'd been telling her about it, and there it remains, hanging on display by all the Prima goodness. Ha ha! I think it will become a class, and I'm actually excited about teaching some projects again, especially if they are as fun as this one was! Here are a couple closeups:

These illustrations crack me up, because they have such funny captions for seemingly normal pictures. The one of the boy says, "The most popular boy in the deaf school." The one of the two little girls says, "He kept pointing toward the fields." They all have pretty funny captions. Gotta love vintage!

The Craft Monster...

FlickrDroid Upload

The Craft Monster got bored one day and painted my wall. Who lets that Craft Monster out, anyway? Really Monster should have been contained so the house could get cleaned, or some more organizing projects tackled, but no... Craft Monster went on a teeny rampage.

The wall makes me happy.
