Wallpaper Projects

Do you get the Martha Stewart’s Organizing Tip of the Day? If so, you are probably familiar with today’s newsletter, but for those of you who don’t receive her daily e-mails, here’s what’s on the menu today: decorating with scraps of wallpaper you have left! I have to say I’d never thought of that, but good ol’ Martha is always full of fresh ideas:

Aren’t they just gorgeous? Head on over to MS's website to take a look at all of the lovely ideas posted there.

In the meantime, I’m working on the first few items that I will list for sale on Etsy very soon. I actually have the first four completed.

Hope you’re having a fabulous week!

this looks cute!
btw did you feel the earthquake??? I've heard on the news that there was one in the Black Sea just a couple of hours ago and it felt in Sofia as well.
Anyway.. hope you're good!

Happy Wednesday!

Nah, we didn't feel it. I wasn't even aware until she told me that you had posted something about it.

Then again, I was probably plugged in at the time, blazing away at the keyboard while riding a coffee-high. Is it possible to differentiate between the coffee shakes and the trembling of an earthquake?

Great post! I love all the ideas...

If you get a chance, stop by my Blog and say hi. I just put up a post from the San Francisco Gift Show where my Pillows were featured.
Have a great day,
Aimee

How have you been doing Evy?? Seems like August was a busy month for most of the bloggers! Hope you're good tough! Stop by when you get back to business;)

Happy Wednesday!

Just an update, because I know she's been very busy.

Things are going great :) We just got back from a seaside holiday last night, and are enjoying our tans and looking forward to working off those extra few pounds from excessive eating/drinking.

Her crafting is going along nicely, albeit slower than she originally planned, due to an increased work schedule. She has been gaining popularity at her job, and has started receiving a large number of clients asking for her personally, which means she's been working longer shifts and has less time to dedicate to her crafting than she planned at first.

Her Etsy shop is set up, I believe, and we have a few items that are going to be going up for sale in the next week or so. More items will show up over the course of September. Believe me, she has a notebook full of ideas, sketches, and otherwise, so there is a lot to come, it's just a matter of her finding the free time to work on this stuff.

So, to her followers, never fear! Evy is still here, she's just very busy. Thanks for the continued support, and she'll be in contact in the near future :)
