New Love: Twig & Thistle

I have a new favorite crafter! Kathleen over at Twig & Thistle is fantastic. Style Me Pretty scooped her up as their newest DIY editor and boy were they smart. I can’t even wrap by brain around how she comes up with such adorable, perfect projects.

I mean seriously, look at this stuff….

Homemade vanilla


Lunch Sack Favors

Valentine’s Treats: here & here

Kathleen, I don’t know how you do it, but please please keep em coming!


Pendant flags!

Some new flags I’ve been working on the past few days……




Object artwork

I found this on Design Sponge a couple of weeks ago. Kate made it as a Valentine’s gift, but I just love the idea…I’m always collecting different artwork ideas for the day when I actually get things on our walls.

We have a huge baggie of keys left over from the original owners (they were a little obsessed with locking everything in the house) Maybe I could use those to make a pretty picture like this…hmm

If you’d like to make your own, directions here.

Pretty tape

I just bought $20 worth of this pretty tape! My husband doesn’t quite understand why I need this, but I know you all would. 🙂 I want one of each color, but knew that wouldn’t fly with the hubs, so I went with green, blue and red. You can get your own here at Ginko Papers. Better hurry, looks like the green is already sold out!

Zig Zag quilt

I stumbled across this beautiful quilt by Molly over at PurlBee. She made it as a gift for a friend’s wedding. I’m so jealous of her mad quilting skills AND of her friend for getting such a thoughtful gift! Bravo Molly!

Smitten mitten

How adorable is this? The smitten mitten allows you to hold hands even when it’s chilly out. And it even looks like a heart!

For you knitters out there, there’s a free pattern designed by Julie Weisenberger.
