I am a designer, illustrator, and calligrapher living in Boulder, Colorado, USA. When I was a little girl, I was constantly drawing ... I would nestle myself into the craft room of our family home and draw a story while I narrated it out loud. The story invariably focused around a princess in some sort of peril -- mostly because I liked illustrating women in beautiful dresses! Not many of my clients request pretty princess drawings (their loss!), so I decided to seize the opportunity to make a fashion-forward, princess-like Crafterella for Cut Out + Keep. I had a lot of fun creating this piece!



This week the Sidekicks are trying out the Multipom in our Craft Test and making dozens of little pom poms to craft for a pom pom letter, Up house mobile and festive pom pom wreath.

Glasgow, Scotland •

The best thing about Glasgow is it is a big little city. Everything is so accessible and easy to get to. Even though it's a city, it's cheap to live in. The streets are full of people, but you're likely to bump into a friend along the way. There are so many events and activities to take part in all at your doorstep.

We head behind the scenes at Delineate Your Dwelling to tour Amy's office / guest room in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

It's amazing what some simple furniture rearranging and new paint on the walls can do! The space feels so much larger and brighter now. Then, I added tons of things that make me happy and feel creative to personalize it.

Dim from The Dim Pig recreates the edgy bohemian style of Vanessa Hudgens.

Vanessa Hudgens is a bohemian icon. Either spotted on the street or on a formal occasion, she always has that effortless boho vibe on her. Maxi dresses and skirts, long pendant necklaces and different patterns from florals to paisley are her staples. Her earthy style is constantly evolving and it always gives me inspiration.

    Screen printing has been on my to try list for a while now. I do wonder how durable the screen print is for items that have to be washed though. Thanks for the review of this kit.
