Selvedge Dahlia: Amy Barickman’s flower of the day from her new book Fabric Flowers (and a giveaway!)

I was invited by Amy Barickman and Indygo Junction to participate in their Fabric Flower Blog Tour by creating one of the designs from their latest book, Fabric Flowers. I chose to create the Selvedge Dahlia, a pretty posie flower that utilizes all the tiny scraps we always tend to accumulate. I love that you can use so little fabric to make this flower, and I REALLY love how quick and easy it is. I didn’t have to learn any tricky new techniques, and I got to enjoy making a pretty flower with materials I had lying around my work table, so I give it a definite A+.

Tonight I made this flower with scraps from the lady bow ties I make for Hello Holiday. It all came together in about 30 minutes, and I’m sure it’ll be in regular rotation with the rest of my favorite flower accessories.

Amy Barickman also is sharing a copy of her new book, Fabric Flowers, and Clover’s new Fuse N Gather & Wrap N Fuse Piping tools. I’m talkin’ Nancy Zieman status, y’all. You can also receive 20% off of your next IndygoJunction.com order with code FFBK2. In this video you can see more previews from Fabric Flowers–there’s clearly lots of project inspiration in there, so if you’re a flower lover or a craft hound, you will probably find lots of fun things to in this new book.

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment. I’ll contact you at the end of the Blog Tour and get the book and some extra goodies sent to you ASAP!

New for March: My favorites!

It’s that time of year when we’re starting to get a lot of new things into the shop, but this season is even more exciting to me because so many of our designers are brand new to us as well. I’m noticing a theme throughout my favorite picks–lots of words and messages. I generally think…

1. A skull and crossbones drawn by Alice. “It means ‘Pirate.’” 2. Before dinner with Rebecca Forsyth at Gordon Ramsay Steak in Las Vegas, my favorite restaurant ever. Maybe we’d had a few by that point. I think Rebecca looks so gorgeous here! A true living doll. 3. Selfie of a selfie. 4. “If you want…

The Local List! Meet the Airbnb Team in Omaha

Airbnb is hosting an event for Omaha residents as part of their Local List series. It's all happening this Saturday, March 7th from 12pm - 5pm at The Living Room at the Mastercraft Building, my old haunt!

Things

I love my apartment so much. I'm near all my favorite restaurants, less than a block away from my office, and everything is exactly how I like it. I just cleaned and polished all my wood floors and today Alice washed all the windows. I enjoy taking care of my things and maintaining the space. Every thing is a nice thing, every thing feels more luxurious, and you want fewer things, when you care for what you have.

Creep on my apartment, a haven for all things feminine.

I just finished a particularly heavy cleaning session with Alice and wanted to share. It seems like 4 1/2 is when they really start getting useful...she did a GREAT job cleaning the dishes, wood floors, windows, tabletops, mirrors, and dusting. I just organized and folded laundry. New Airbnb guest (a radio DJ!) coming tomorrow, and we can't wait to host her. Until then, take a look. I love where I live.
