Weekend Happenings

I had a pretty busy weekend.  Busy enough that I didn't work on anything crafty.  BOO.

Yesterday was my and my husband's 6th anniversary.  We celebrated on Friday night by having dinner at the restaurant where we had our first date.

Saturday morning, I spent some time gathering project photos for a meeting at Miracle Hill Thrift Stores.  It was kind of mind-blowing to see all of the pretty things I've made, and luckily sold.  It means other people think my stuff is pretty too!  I say mind-blowing because I've never really seen everything all together before, and didn't realize just how much I'd done over the last few years.  It was also really motivating because for the last couple of years, I'd lost steam with working on this kind of thing, and have had it on the back burner. I've mentioned before, having a garage full of stuff that I need to get moving.  Seeing all of my finished projects has given me the push I need to get my 2nd shop, Sweet Caroline at Home, stocked with more upcycled/repurposed items.  I see A LOT of paint in my near future! 

I didn't work on anything crafty this weekend, but I did manage to get some thrifting in, and got some great stuff!  The best find was a 1st edition printing of Rebecca.  I picked it up because it looked shabby and I knew it would go well with some of the other books I've got sitting out.  I went to check the title, and seriously felt a jolt when I saw what book it was!  Rebecca is my no.1 favorite book, EVER!  

I also launched my Sweet Caroline at Home Instagram.  It'll mainly be covering the thrifting and upcycling/repurposing stuff I do, and will be linked to the Sweet Caroline at Home Etsy shop.  I'd love for you to follow me!  

My other Instagram account is more personal.  I share a lot of pics from my personal life, as well and any crafty stuff I work on.  Right now, there's a lot of quilting going on in my feed.  

Today, I'm starting on a quilt for my niece who is having her 4th birthday party.  Of course, she's into princesses, and loves pink and purple.  Shocker, right??  I found some really cute fabrics to use, and can't wait to get started.

Until next time...
