I swear. But I can't help that I'm already thinking of Halloween and my costume. My obvious choice is Marie Antoinette. It totally fits into my Halloween costume theme. I always do super girly yet slightly trashy costumes. Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland. And now Marie Antoinette.

School started so needless to say my crafting time has been cut substantially. But I spent all of yesterday crafting in an attempt to cheer myself up. School sucked thats all I've got to say.
Anywho I made these yesterday!
I made this with some mementos from my Paris trip and I love the final product. I especially love the handles. They are so Paris to me. They remind me of my front door in Paris...
I also made this. It covers a plain boring composition notebook. I didnt really like the fabric at first but now I think it's really cute and fun. This was really simple and I made it out of one fat quarter. I know the tutorials call for more fabric but I feel mine is just fine with the amount of fabric I used. I cant wait to make other covers for things now since this was so easy.
Thats all for now.

Why on earth anyone ever lets me into a bookstore is beyond me. I always spend hours roaming the store and I always find tons of books that I later go home and buy on amazon. Im cheap and B&N is expensive. Especially since I was able to get the Marie Antoinette book I saw in Paris for 1.99 on amazon! Woot! I think its the idea of all these amazing works in one place that I could actually buy and own. Kinda like why I love museums, well minus the whole buying and owning part.

A friend of mine posted a link to a tea wallet tutorial and I immediately had to make one. I had screwed up a book cover a week ago so the already interfaced fabric was just waiting to be used. Now that I know how easy it is, Im gonna make another for my purse to hold store cards and stuff.

This cottage makes me swoon. I love it. Put this on the South Carolina coast and I would be a happy girl. I can already imagine it full of glossy art books and the low hum of classical music coming from some room. <3

Because of that fact I have a strong desire for this set of books designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith. There are 10 of them but they are super hard to find because they were originally only sold in the UK. Regardless they are drool worthy. I absolutely love them and they would look great on a shelf by themselves. Plus I don't have these books yet, well except for Madame Bovary but this set is worth it.
