These chunky felted bead necklaces are so cool! I love how they look, and you know they probably are fun to touch as well! Kleas made the ones shown above with her pre-school class, who then took the necklaces home to their mothers!
She put together some very nice how-to instructions for making the felted beads and the jewelry! It looks really easy and fun, check it out!

I love all these animal charms by Happy Owl Glassworks! There are so many different animals I could never pick one; they’re all too good!
I can’t believe you can get them as night lights, too – that is so awesome! Check out their site here.

crochet lip balm holder!

Ah! Almost too cute- Carina of Carina’s Craft Blog made this little crochet holder for her lip balm! It’s so pretty, and if you are the type that needs your lip balm always handy, really useful! Check out the tutorial she made here!

I love this awesome idea for a deer head decoration from doe-c-doe! She used the pattern from a vintage transfer (the middle picture) and embroidered the deer’s features onto the fabric, then backed it with 1/2″ foam core. Doesn’t it look awesome?!
Be sure to check out doe-c-doe, it’s good!

These blankets from Moxy Crochet are just so amazing and intricate! I think part of the appeal for me is the color combinations – too pretty!

I couldn’t resist posting a few of these pictures from a little editorial in the April Jalouse Magazine! They are stitched representations of various designers by Olympia Le Tan – I wish her website were finished! I also wish these pictures had scanned a little better, because in the magazine they are just so cute!

I really like these cute little stools from All the Luck in the World, don’t you? I especially like the cream colored ones! The crafty hand-embroidery really makes them!

Our May catalog drops tomorrow, and we are so excited! The pieces in it are really fabulous, especially our new Riding Hood Convertible Tee and our Convertible Cape! We are extra excited for these two pieces because they can both be styled in a number of different ways! They’re like 4 shirts in one!
We’ve made a little video to show off the different ways to wear these two items, and how to create the looks! Check it out!

carrot cake treats

Elsie Marley made these delicious looking carrot cake cookies using this recipe, which I am really excited to try! Apparently when Elsie made these cookies they got eaten right up, and no surprise – just looking at them is making my mouth water…

silkworms

Craftzine found a really interesting article about how silk is made over on True Up. It’s definitely worth checking out!

That is so cool! What a great idea for a school project! I wish I had gone to your elementary school :)

I had a pet silkworm as a 3rd grade project ha ha how random. But it was so cool and it was the first (and last) time I was brave enough to hold an insect. We kept them til they transformed to moths then I really don't remember what happened to them after that :)

You may remember a while back when we talked about all the cool sequined and embellished tights that hit the runway during fashion week… Well, Park & Cube has a really handy tutorial showing how she embellished the fabulous tights shown above! It has awesome pictures and some handy tips for those of us who feel the urge to DIY some cool tights for ourselves! Check it out here.
