cards for complicated people

January 18, 2010

Posted by in handmade

happy monday- and holiday!  how was your weekend?  ours was wonderful.  i got a lot of sewing done and was able to relax a bit as well!  the hub and i went to see avatar yesterday- have you seen it?  if it’s still playing in your area, you must go see it.  words can’t really explain how i felt about it.  not only is it the most beautiful movie i’ve ever seen, but the message it brings about the environment is overwhelmingly beautiful, and needs to be heard by everyone.  you won’t regret it- it’s definitely worth the tickets, and the 3-d glasses!  ok, since this is not a movie critic blog- let’s get on to some handmade goodness!

i love these cards.  simply stated, simply put, beautifully hand painted. cards for complicated people are designed for people who lead a life of many, sometimes not very perfect, layers. who does that not apply to?

happy friday!  what are you doing this weekend? i don’t have much planned other then spending some time in my sewing room.  i’ve got tons of projects screaming my name! if you’ve got some downtime, check out inkbloom- because you could get seriously crafty!

working

inkbloom puts design- right at your fingertips.  ever go to the fabric store and find that they’ve got your fabric- but in the wrong colorway? with inkbloom, you can create your own fabric, right at home. you can download designs, easily recolor them or personalize them and click print!

inkbloom offers downloadable designs and also inkjet fabric stabilizer and blank fabric, so you have everything you need to get creative.. and crafty!  the stabilizer sheets allows you to run the fabric through your printer, and you can use their blank fabric, or any fabric you have at home.  the stabilizer sheets also allow you to print double sided fabric and, once you’re done, can even be used to create beautiful matte stickers and labels.  they have an amazing selection of beautiful prints and patterns to choose from, and i’m thinking you could get pretty crafty with designing your own, too!

working-17

their website is full of inspiration and beautiful ideas to help you envision all of the possibilities.  this is truly, a designers dream come true!
