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.
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! ;)
Card-Making is probably my all-time favorite craft. It's quick, simple, and beautiful!
These pop-up cards are a perfect quick Valentine Card to make. If you haven't gotten a card for your valentine yet, try making one of these!
I opted to make the Love 3-D card. Martha Stewart Living always has links to pdf's to print out. It's super helpful and they are usually really high quality. Click here for the full tutorial and print outs.
I couldn't resist adding some washi tape to the front of the card, and then adding Chris' name onto the outside of the envelope.
If you're anything like me, you can't stop buying japanese washi tape! At Collage, we have it in truckloads as we've just received lots of new colors. I was inspired to try something with it and after seeing this pin, from a Norwegian blogger, Moa og kaffekoppen. I knew I had to make them!
I hope that these inspire you to make some cards of your own.
