Treasury Tuesday: Pride

I didn’t get to go to Pride in Boston this year (allergies… still…) but that doesn’t mean I can’t celebrate from home.  I enjoyed all the bright colors I found when searching for items with the tags: gay pride, LGBT and GLBT (funny to see the slight differences between the items for the two acronyms, I conjecture more women pick the first one, we like to put ourselves first!).

Treasury Tuesday: Picnic

I spent the weekend enjoying the unofficial start to summer.  Memorial Day Weekend is traditionally when the pools open (ours didn’t because weeks of rain delayed whatever prep was needed), people travel to the beach or the park and start up the barbecues.  This week’s treasury is filled with everything you need for a successful picnic:

Everything you need for a picnic: a cute outfit, dishes and utensils, portable sewing supplies (even on a picnic a crafter must keep working), plus bags and baskets for carrying everything!

What do you consider absolutely essential on a picnic? For me it’s deviled eggs (and not ones made from soap!).

Treasury Tuesday: Salem Etsians

Last Sunday I met with some local Etsy sellers.  We have formed a team called Salem Etsians and are proud to represent Salem, MA on Etsy.  We have plans for a craft crawl June 10 as a part of Etsy’s craft party, check out meetup to find a party near you!  While waiting to see what everyone brings to the party I decided to check out all of their Etsy shops.  Here are some of my favorite items from members of the team:

Are you planning on participating in a craft party? If there isn’t one near you just ask your local craft store, I bet they’d love to host one!

Treasury Tuesday: Birthday

My brother’s birthday was last week.  He told me not to get him anything since he never got around to getting something for me this year.  That wasn’t an option- gift giving is too much fun!  So, to make things easier for him I put together a treasury of potential birthday gifts I’d like to receive.  I now feel terrible for anyone who has ever had to give me a gift!  I knew I was terrible at shopping for clothing/shoes, but I didn’t realize exactly how hard it would be to think of something I wanted but didn’t have.  On the one hand, I don’t want much that isn’t practical, and it would be boring if he got me more yarn or a set of multi-color grading pens for my birthday.  On the other hand, I buy most things that I want.  I decided I wanted a sea glass necklace after hearing that it was someone’s most treasured possession, so I ordered one.  I regularly buy yarn and just bought a set of multi-colored pens!  After a couple hours of browsing and a good dose of soul searching, here’s what I came up with.

The only things I thought of that I couldn’t find on Etsy were the sculptures that I covet every time I go to Ten Thousand Villages:

5 Things Friday

So, I’m finding myself to be very jealous of Allison from the amazing blog Little Lovelies.  She has a beautiful blog set up and she shared her amazing craft room today (remember how I was just talking about Craft Room Envy?).  Plus she had a great idea called “5 Things Friday” where she shares 5 things about different topics each Friday.  I thought it was brilliant, plus it fits so well in my “easy for me, interesting for you” blog motto that I just have to copy her.  They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery, which is certainly my intention here.

This week’s 5 things will be all about the week’s accomplishments:

1. I started this blog!  I have some ideas for how to make sure that I have time to post, hopefully the posts I did this week will form an easy schedule to follow so I always have interesting content for you to read.

2. I found a lot more cool blogs to share.  Allison is probably my favorite so far, but I look forward to telling you about other people I’ve discovered.  Does anyone know how to create a blog roll in wordpress?

3. I learned both tunisian crochet and entrelac.  I only made a little sample that can hardly be called a bag, but it may work out to become a part of an upcycled vase… more updates on that soon.  Plus, the often promised but not yet realized post on both methods of crochet!

4. New yarn arrived in the mail!  I love this amazing colorway from BlueDogFibers.  And I got to spend a mindless evening winding it.  I love winding yarn when it doesn’t tangle.

5. I started crocheting a hemp basket (which I intend to finish as soon as I hit publish).  Hemp is a fun yarn to use and it’s not as rough as I remember from doing macrame.

That’s all I’ve been up to this week.  What about you?
