Brimfield Antique Show

Brimfield Antique Show

I am back and mostly recovered! Over the past week my brother and I have been vendors for the first time at the Brimfield Antique Show. The show is the largest and oldest outdoor antique show in the country. It is about 2 miles long on route 20 and about 1/4 mile back on each side of the road. Imagine that then imagine it bigger! We have been going to Brimfield shopping for many years and last September decided we could do this! So we went for it! And I am so ecstatic that we did.

New England Artisan Gallery

New England Artisan Gallery

Recently I stopped by the New England Artisan Gallery. Now I pass this show atleast once a week and yet I had never been in. I wasn't even sure what was inside. I am so happy I stopped because this store was meant to inspire me. 

I find it only appropriate that the week that I am heading out to Brimfield, the nations largest outdoor antiques market, that I share this gem with you.  It is also the reason that I have been a little MIA in posting this past week. It maybe a little quiet on here but I am constantly posting on instagram if you are missing us.

March Silhouette Challenge– Wedding Shower Gift Heart Map

March Silhouette Challenge– Wedding Shower Gift Heart Map

It's that time again! Time for the Silhouette Challenge! This month's theme is paper. Make sure you stick around until the end to see 43 other inspirational projects.

Now choosing a project to complete for this challenge was actually kind of hard. With paper the options are just endless. Recently I used an old atlas to make cards for a cardswap. When I was choosing pages from the map book I had set aside Massachusetts and Texas knowing that I wanted to do something with them for an upcoming wedding. You see one of my best friends is getting married in July she is from Mass and her fiance is from Texas. With their relationship initially being long distance their states are a significant part of their story.

Oh The Places You'll Go Card and a Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!

Oh The Places You'll Go Card and a Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!

Cards are something that I have always tried to make. Let's face it cards are expensive and if you aren't sentimental the ones off the shelf usually end up in the garbage a month or two after receiving them. This is why I try to make cards. One I think they are a little more meaningful and two I like to make a card that you would want to put out on display! 

This month I joined up with a group of 26 crafters and bloggers for a card swap. How it works is that I make 26 handmade cards mail them out to the organizer and two weeks later I will get back 26 unique handmade cards. How fun! Now I have been diligently working on these cards for the past couple of weeks and am finally ready to mail them out and anxiously await for the unique 26 to come back in the mail. I'll be sure to share them in the coming weeks. 

Make sure to stay until the end of this post for a chance to win a Silhouette Portrait!

DIY Filing Cabinet Makeover

DIY Filing Cabinet Makeover

I was lucky enough to be gifted a hand-me-down filing cabinet. Recently my craft supplies have just outgrown my craft armoire. I was excited to have a new storage solution but I never imagined myself to have filing cabinet. I knew there had to be a way to spruce this up and give it new life. 

With a lot of googling I managed to come across a slew of cabinets that had been painted and linen wrapped with fabric. This was exactly what I needed to do and it would actually turn into the accent color and piece I needed for my craft room I am putting together.
