Welcome! My name is Heather Joy. My passion for being creative began earlier than I can remember. I love all things involved with home decor, vintage, fabric, and paper. Through blogging, I hope to inspire you to craft.
Have you seen these tiny glass bottles? At collage, we sell them and everyone is immediately enamored! But they also beg the question: How do I use them? So I thought I'd play around with them myself and also round up some ideas!
Wax Sealed Perfume/Potion Bottles
I made a little "potion" (various oils mixed together) to fill the bottles. But you could pour perfume or essential oils inside and use it as a perfume bottle. Here's how:
If that doesn't inspire you, here's a few more ideas:
I can't believe that I've made it to my 200th post! Looking back, it's amazing to see how much I've grown in blogging, and how many projects and activities I've accomplished and been able to share with you. It only ignites my passion to continue sharing and striving to inspire YOU to craft!
Here's a look back at some of my favorite projects and posts. Enjoy!
#10 - These Zipper Bags were the first that I had tried anything involving a zipper. It's not easy, but not impossible! Zippers really take practice and these little pouches are perfect for just that.
#9 - One of my first experiences of the Alameda Flea Market. I miss going here and the sunshine! But perhaps next time I'll be a vendor! ;)
#8 - Our First Booth at the Alberta Street Fair. Little did we know how much of a profession this would turn into for us! ;) This year, Chris and I will be combining our booth and assuming a fresh new name for our vintage sales. Come see us this Saturday at Beggars Banquet and all season at Portland Flea!
#7 - This Rainbow Chevron Quilt started as a challenge to use just 5" square solids (a first for me!). Cutting them up and making zig zags was only natural.
#6 - I loved making this Vintage Sheet Quilt. It's basically one block turned into one quilt. I just sold this quilt on etsy and I've been stockpiling more sheets, it's time to make a new one! ;)
Flea is back! Before Christmas, we had so much to do that going to the flea on Sunday mornings fell by the wayside. But now the holidays are over and we are getting back to a normal routine! Chris and I woke up early to a super foggy morning, layered up, and with warm coffee in our hands: set off!
We didn't find any big pieces, but a few good small pieces!
This sweater was only $1 and I plan to make a throw pillow out of it.
We can't resist super cheap blue, pretty bottles!
A white, sequin, vintage party bag?! Yes, please! You'll see me sporting this at Alt's Winter Wonderland!
