More Laptop Covers – EEE PC

This is the laptop sleeve that I made. This is the teeny, adorable EEE PC that sits in the laptop sleeve that I made. This is the poet/mom/blogger (Jan!) that writes on the EEE PC that sits in the laptop sleeve that I made. This is the company that will be publishing a book of […]

I Run on Dunkin

I will admit it right now, to you, here on the Internet, that I am addicted to the delicious iced tea produced by the little purple and orange roadside stops between here and everywhere, called Dunkin Donuts.  Not being a coffee drinker, having a Dunkin Donuts habit is fairly new to me – say, since […]

The Bee Bag

A friend recently got a very adorable EEE PC and asked me to make her a bag to tote it around town in.  It’s a version of a bag that she asked me for ages ago, with specific requirements for many, many, many, many (did I say many?) pockets, a nice long strap, and ample […]

Etsy Store Filled Up With Goodness!

Great news! I’ve got a big shop update over in Etsyland, filled with patchwork belts, pencil cases, and padded laptop sleeves like the one above.  If you’re interested, you can take a look-see over here… I think one of my fave items in the store is the above padded laptop sleeve.  We are a wee […]

Weekender Bag – Off to Maine!

Well, the Craft Room Makeover has to take a hiatus.  I’m going to Maine!  And I’m taking one of my most favorite bags along for the ride.  The Weekender!  And doesn’t it go so well with Asparagus?  (You will get very sick of this color, if things keep going this way on my blog!) We’re […]

Maroon Grommet Bag

In the theme of the craft room makeover, this maroon grommet bag photo shoot involves the ladder that I’ve been lugging around for the last two days to scrape, mask, edge, and finally paint. Isn’t the bag cute?  It’s the “real” bag that this grommet bag prototype was meant to prototype.  I actually owe the […]

The Demitasse Bag 2 (or: Timtex Challenge Part 2!)

Here’s the second bag I made to test out the old and new Timtex interfacing from C&T Publishing.  This one was the proud recipient of the old Timtex, in all of its coveted glory. Just like the first Demitasse Bag I made, this one used the entire contents of a Timtex craft pack, ‘cept this […]

The Demitasse Bag (or: Timtex Challenge Part 1!)

This is a bag design I’m calling The Demitasse. It reminds me of something you might carry with you when meeting your friends for brunch in a cute little cafe, maybe drinking something out of a small demitasse cup… you know? Or maybe not.  But the name came up and off it went to become […]

Laptop sleeve 2

Another laptop sleeve!  Simple, snug-fitting, protective cuteness! The outside is Amy Butler, the inside is Tula Pink’s Flutterby (my newest obsession).
