Okay, I wasn’t sleeping. (Sleep? What’s that?) I was working, and we’ve been putting up some awesome stuff at Whimseybox. Just in case you missed it -
Check out our new office!
Make this DIY leather glasses case!
Enter this home décor DIY contest!
Whimseybox is looking for blog contributors!
Make these papel picado votive holders!
Surprise ending to the DIY duvet cover in this video!
A DIY twine stand!
And truly, this isn’t even the half of it. More good stuff on the Whimseybox blog and in the Whimseybox projects section!
Later this week – the behind-the-behind-the-scenes from our new office!
Hey hey, took a little break there but I’m back. Things that have been going on:
- Boulder: perfect city is perfect.
- Aerial fabric: Alyssa (Whismeybox design extraordinaire) and I are taking an aerial fabric class and are obsessed. If taking over the craft world doesn’t work out, we can literally run away and join the circus!
- Biking: everyone, all the time
How was your weekend?
Circus Circus- named for the coolest place we always wanted to go as kids. It was a Chuck E Cheese type place we looooooooved. Some Googleing resulted in falling down this rabbit hole where someone has commemorated the old strip mall it was in with a really long, detailed post. Why!? I suppose for he same reason that I read every word of it.
…GREECE! I’ll get back to that in a second.
First, you should check out the new DIY leather card case project posted on Whimseybox. It’s the updated leather card case project I taught at Craftcation, and you can download the pattern for free.
Second, this morning I picked up the keys to our NEW OFFICE! Wouldn’t it be awesome if I saved up that news until we were moved it and it was decorated like some kind church of DIY and technology? Maybe, but there’s no way that was going to happen. I’ll do a longer post soon once I take some pictures and we move in. Can. Not. Wait!
Third, I’m going to GREECE to speak at a conference next month. How awesome is that? It’s great to look forward to, since this my house looks like this right now…
It is snowing today, AGAIN. Argh. On the bright side, it was beautiful this weekend. Come on spring, stay a while! In other news, I think we should be moving Whimseybox into an office this week. You have no idea what a relief this will be. Sorting everyone out of the moving boxes finally, having room to work on projects and having some separation between home and work. Cross your fingers!
1st Column: Skylights, bracelet
2nd Column: Glass, sculpture, straws
3rd Column: Wall, fireplace
I’m working on a woven DIY, so I have it on the brain. How was your weekend? Mine went way too quickly, but was a much-needed respite from the week. I got my hair chopped (like 4 inches!), hiked up Green Mountain (love having this stuff in the neighborhood!) and caught up with our families. There’s still a huge backlog of work, but I feel more rested and ready for the week. Bring it on, Monday!
1st Column: Colorful, shoes, heart
2nd Column: Basket, texture, loom
3rd Column: Cowl, chair, basket
PS – So many ugly prom dresses on Pinterest when I was looking for some of the images above. Ugh, 16 – 18 year olds, DO NOT BUY THIS CRAP.
