Bored? Here’s a quick and easy project you can do while sitting in your cubicle, like artist Angela Duncan. All you need is a lampshade and a pen. Choose a sharpie, or roller-ball for the best results. Use color, too! Any kind of marker will do. I like the eastern influence in this design. This is actually (and obviously) an excellent idea for anyone with a steady hand and a boring
This week’s giveaway was a great one, wasn’t it? I’d like to thank Terra Home for sponsoring it and ask everyone to take a minute to visit their site. They have beautiful handmade tiles and dishes.
And now, the winner of the Not Just For Sushi Dishes is….
Congratulations to Liz. She gets to choose from the three styles of plates and Terra Home will have them zipping on their way to her. Liz, are you going to give them as a gift, or save them for yourself? It’s a hard decision. My favorite style, by the way, are the fish.
Next week I’ll have another giveaway and then, two giveaways per week up until Christmas. It’s fun! So stay tuned.
And now I’m off to check out the Urban Craft Fair here in Detroit. See you Monday!

I will definitely see you there!
If any of you saw my post from yesterday about the upcoming Jr League Show House I’ve submitted proposals for, then you know I’ve been thinking about Liberty prints. They’re very distinctive, floral prints from Britain. Many patterns from the Victorian era are still made today. Typically, they were used for dresses. Now Liberty makes home decor items and has branched off into other things. But the florals will always be my favorite.
Today I saw that Marie Claire Id?©es’ blog has several holiday crafts you can make using Liberty fabrics.
The instructions are written in French, but you’ll get the idea. And if you need some How-To instruction, try an online translator to help.
They give instructions for the birdhouse and the tree with ornaments. Obviously, you don’t have to use Liberty prints. But you can buy them directly from Liberty and local fabric shops.
Can you help me out? If you know a shop that sells Liberty here in the States, can you let us all know by leaving the info in the comments?
Handmade? It looks like you made it with your feet. A friend sent me this link to Regretsy, a site dedicated to poking a little fun at strange handmade items. I thought you would enjoy this one.
I wonder if she could do the same thing with dryer lint. I have this favorite sweater…. That’s my laugh for the day. Enjoy.
