This identity program for 3 Little Birds Salon by Lifter Baron is amazing. It’s just so fresh and beautiful I instantly fell in love!

I want to go to that place

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

Going to a sign museum doesn’t sound like the most exciting time but it is when you’re in Las Vegas, neon central! Photographer Greg Meadows has taken some drool worthy photos documenting the Las Vegas Neon Museum’s Boneyard.

Lisa Rupp, a surface pattern designer, sent me a link to her amazing work yesterday and I couldn’t resist sharing! I just adore her patterns, color palettes and all the whimsical details in each illustration.

Lisa is graciously offering a free printable calendar for March and will continue to offer a calendar every month for the rest of 2009! Since I missed the calendar boat this year I couldn’t be happier! The two that are available for February and March are absolutely stunning! Be sure to check out Lisa’s blog here and see more of her concept work and patterns on her Flickr page. Thanks to Lisa for sharing!

Sewing Pattern Twinkle Lights

I was searching for Crepe Paper Crafts over the weekend and stumbled onto this beautiful tutorial for Sewing Pattern Twinkle Lights over at Everyday Beauty. The simplicity and charm of these took my breath away. These lovelies are made with old fabric patterns and white christmas lights. Good thing I just happen to collect fabric patterns – I knew they would come in handy some day! I can’t wait to find an excuse to make a garland of my own. Be sure to check out the full post for complete instructions.

Twig & Thistle Etsy Shop!

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

I am SO excited to announce that I’ve opened up shop on Etsy over the weekend! I hope to be able to share more templates and other craftables in the future but for now I’ve got just the one project (in 4 colors). I’ve received several requests for my Baby Quiz Scorecards from my friends shower that I designed and hosted, and I thought it would be a good place to start.

These PDFs are editable, so you can fill in your own questions and answers and then print and cut. The best part is that once you’ve downloaded the template it’s yours to keep and use again and again! Below are some pictures from my first listing at the Twig & Thistle Store on Etsy.

To see pics from the shower that these were originally designed for check out Baby Shower: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. If you have any specific ideas on what you’d like to see next or more of, I’d love to hear from you! Just leave a comment below.
