Fabulous Fabric Friday pt. 2

Today I'm highlighting some very popular fabric designers who have inspired so many crafters, new and established! The first is probably the most famous and is why my own fabric obsession began.

I adore Amy Butler fabrics and patterns. And her website's fabulous too don't you think? I wish she had a blog. I still want to have a Little Daisy's flower nap pillow made for Sugar & Spice. I found the pattern online today so I'll probably order it and then see if I can find someone to make it for me. Any volunteers? :o)

Anyhoo, here's a sneak peek of Amy's new Spring 08 collection called Midwest Modern:

The collection will be out this April. To see the rest of the colorways click here!

The next designer became an instant favorite with his first 3 collections in 2007.

Surprisingly I don't have anything made with Joel Dewberry fabric! I really will have to rectify that. :oP His newest collection called Ginseng will be out this May. It looks beautiful! Here's a sneak peek:

To see the rest of the colorways in this collection click here! Once again he has a beautiful website but alas no blog.

Lastly, I wanted to share a fabric designer who is new to me but probably not to most of you sew crafty ladies. ;o) Her name is Tina Givens. She has a blog too. I had seen her chandelier fabric here and there but when I found her blog and saw this fabric colorway...

...I fell in LOVE! I can't wait for her new collection called Chloe's Imagination to come out this spring. It is soooo my style! Check out the other colorways in this collection on Tina's blog.

Stay tuned for more "fabric love"...next Friday! :o)


Random Fun!

I've been a "busy bee" this past weekend and have a number of jewelry pieces done. Yay me! Unfortunately I haven't been able to take pics yet. I'm hoping to get that done this week and then list them on ETSY this weekend. I'm very excited! It's a spring collection and I have to say I've been very inspired lately. I can't wait to show you! :o) I'll also be revamping the design of the store banner to reflect my new "style".

In the meantime, here's some random fun!

Why God Made Moms
(Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions)

How did God make mothers?
1. He used dirt, just like the rest of us.
2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
3. God made my mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.

What's the difference between moms and dads?
1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.
2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3. Dads are taller and stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you ask if you want to sleep over at your friend's.
4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.

Who's the boss at your house?
1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goofball.
2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.
3. I guess mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?
1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.
2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it's my sister who did it, not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

The above was in my Moms of Multiples group newsletter. I just had to share it. :o)
