Great Etsy Seller

Who loves framed illustrations like I do?!
Found this new seller on Etsy, ishandchi and I wanted to share her artwork. 

So be sure to check out ishandchi's etsy shop and her awesome blog here.

I think I am going to start working on a layout for this blog. I'm thinking it needs a mod vintage twist. Sorry I don't post very often. I'm too busy with my etsy shop and working about all the grad applications I waiting to hear back about. Anyone else dying from the application process?!

So I was looking at 's blog and they have some books listed on the blog. I am really interested in these.... Anyone know if they are any good?

I think the covers alone are just beautiful enough to buy!!

Elephants and Paddington!

I just ran across this fabric in a magazine ad. Isn't it too cute!? Owls are a current big crazy on etsy, could Elephants be next? I think they should be.

Here are a few more great fabrics from Karen Neuburger 's Ellie Fun line:

Ohhh! And look there's Paddington Bear Fabrics! Did anyone else just love him growing up?!? I still love that cute little bear! Here is some of the fabric from Paddington & Co.

Vintage Women

So bad storms are headed this way... yuck. Here comes the rotation clouds. I hate living in tornado alley. I figured I would get a post in while I wait and I'm forced to turn off the computer.
I love all things 50s vintage. I would like to show you some of my favorite vintage women ETSY items:

I love the Light Switch covers from msouliere. Isn't it Great!?!

Here are some fabulous pin up pins! From ticklebuttons.

RobotCandy has some great coasters from vintage pattern images. There are several and they are definitely on my list of things to buy.

Any sellers want to make a deal hahaha.

I will be back with some more great items soon, that is if we make it through this storm....

Support Independents!

So I haven't be posting on here much at all. I'm excited that we crafters have postponed the CPSIA! Now on to another issue. Please help get Independent programming back on TV.

Did you know...
Since 1995, the share of Independent TV production on prime time television has fallen from 50 percent to 18 percent. Why? Because a few giant media conglomerates - News Corp, NBC / Universal, Disney, TimeWarner, CBS / Viacom - have combined TV and cable networks, movie studios and distribution channels to control as much of our entertainment system as possible, leaving independents gasping for air time. The result? Less quality programming for the public and fewer options for creative, talented people across the world.

Help get the word out and sign the petition below to help get independent productions on tv! I work independent freelance film and sport broadcasting and I know a lot of you are freelance writers, artists, etc. So lets work to make these opportunities available to all of us and not the greedy corporations.
