Instax Printer





The Instax Smartphone Printer has been on my wishlist for a while, and I was excited to get one for my birthday.  It's a wireless printer that uses Fuji Instax Mini film.  The printer works with the free Instax Share app.  You can choose photos from your smarphone's camera roll, Instagram, or Facebook.  The app also allows you to add text and a few filters to your image.  I'm absolutely crazy about this printer.  It combines my two photography loves:  editing + instant film.

Words in Wire




More wire trials.  I now have bracelets (or necklaces) that spell hero, love, and fly.  Look for these in my shop.

A Cuddly Hedgehog


A while back, this sweet little hedgehog came to live with me.  He was made with lots of love by local blogger/knitter/non-profit queen Ashleigh of Dearly Ashleigh.  She doesn't actually sell them, but maybe you can talk her into a trade.

Chicagoland





A sea of buildings.

Punk Wrap Skirt




Another t-shirt skirt variation.  This one takes less time to make, but the con is that the waistband isn't necessarily an exact fit.  I didn't include any measurements for the rectangles, because that is based on your size.  For my skirt, I actually used medium sized shirts so I needed four rectangles.  Let me know if you tried this out.  I'd love to see the results.

Oh, Deer



Lately, I've been leaning heavily toward silhouette pieces.  The photo is of a large pond in the middle of a farm here in Indiana.  You can see the full image here.

This necklace can be found in my shop.

Wrigley Field







Wrigley Field is celebrating its 100th season this year. The ballpark is known for its ivy covered outfield wall, the hand-turned scoreboard, and being the home of the Chicago Cubs since 1916.
