MakeShoppe - creative musings

It's been a bit since I've updated. I've been blogging regularly at rubiesandlinen.com - a collab venture I've started with a dear, old (young) friend ;) My creative snowball has been gaining speed lately and I've been producing some fun things, sharing my love of creating with willing souls and well, I've been super busy too! I've started working toward my dream of a studio/makerie by just digging in and scheduling creative workshops--which I'm calling MakeShoppes-- on sewing, crafting and calligraphy.

I'm pretty excited. If you're interested in the calligraphy workshop (July 29th) or scheduling a private party/girls night to learn about calligraphy -- definitely get in touch! 

Sew Crafty is a MakeShoppe where we'll create this classy home decor piece with a verse I penned exclusively for the design. It's all done in gorgeous linen and neutral shades and the class will learn five different techniques for easy-to-sew fabric flowers, making straps and ruffles. This past week it was all about pillow in the Basic Sewing MakeShoppes.

I love that I've had some time to pursue some creative projects, work with my hands and renew my creative spirit! I love that my skills as a maker only strengthen my skills as a designer and vice-versa.
