A Myriad of Mushrooms

What? Another post about mushrooms? Well, a week ago, Design*Sponge featured an article about mushrooms, wild mushroom gathering, and a super cute mushroom-focused centerpiece project!

I was so inspired!

That last photo there had me especially enamored! I love the silky purity of the white mushrooms, and the way they grow clustered together like that!

So that very afternoon I went into the studio and did some experimenting with mushroom shapes, and here’s one of the results:

What do you think?? I am very pleased with the way they turned out 🙂 Very fun and so simple, but they just make me smile! I think I’ll be making more, and of course, they’ll be posted in my Shop.

I don’t know why I have such a thing for mushrooms! Oh well! Happy Friday!

Fun with Felt – Gift Bows!

One of my favorite daily indulgences is checking out the hugely inspirational blog at Twig & Thistle. There are just too many creative things that pop up there all the time, and I love it.

This week they are doing a really fun daily feature on felt crafts and Monday’s was such a perfect example of an idea so simple and inspired, it’s sheer genius.

With Christmas just around the corner, I know I will be scrambling to get all my gifts wrapped and adorned with care. I believe it’s the extra step with the wrapping that makes the recipient know how special they are! With the tutorial from T&T, you can make beautiful packaging bows that not only adorn the gift, but could be used over and over again, or even used as festive jewelry!

So thanks Twig & Thistle, for this inspired innovation! I’ll be pulling out my felt scraps for a few of these, to be sure! 🙂
