boys don’t make passes at them. :[
My vision has been getting worse and worse, so a few days ago I finally went to the eye doctor.
So cool news. Today I agreed to work at a local elementary school this year coming in once a week to teach a craft to the kids! How cool is that? It’ll be for the after school program. Now I get to flex my kids crafting muscle and I know there will be some great post fodder from that. That’s all I know so far…I’m going in for the first time in a couple of weeks.
My mind is already racing with ideas…which I LOVE. It seems as soon as I feel like I’m in a slump and getting bored, a new opportunity for creativity comes along. (Look out for those opportunities! Try to notice them!)
I’ll share some of those in the coming days.

There are two new items in the Princess Lasertron store today. Each bouquet is just vintage mother of pearl buttons. Ten stems per bouquet.

So I have had this vintage train case for about 8 years.
It was so gross. Like dirty, smelly, stained lining…every time I look at it, I thought “why did I buy this???”
A few days ago I felt moved to do something about it after so long of wondering what to do with it.
I removed all of the nasty lining–I think it had been a makeup case so you can imagine–and cleaned it really well.
Then I sewed some new lining from this (clean) vintage fabric.
The reason it doesn’t look like it quite lines up is because I sewed magnets inside the lining.
Maybe that looks weird, but this way it can be removed and washed. Then it won’t end up looking like this….
I dunno what to do next. But there are lots of possibilities.
-Make a needle case, scissor case, and pincushion and call it a sewing box
-Add a little rack with hooks screwn into it in front of the mirror and keep accesories in it
-Use some random trays I already have, sew a matching zippered pouch, and make it a traveling makeup box.
Yeah I am a nerd taking a mirror photo.
Thanks to everyone for your fabulous feedback about the felt flower craft post. I loved seeing the things you made. How satisfying and wonderful to know that you care!
