Toggle Commented Mar 14, 2017 on building furniture smarter at iseecerulean
Yes, Brae, exactly! Susan, you send me a diagram with measurements and I'll build you whatever you want. And Ester knows. She knows, and she uses it.

I build furniture more quickly than I used to. Not because I do it faster, but because I do it smarter. Yesterday I made three modern tables.... A dresser/desk combo.... And a kitchen unit...minus the countertop and sink, I'm not... Continue reading

I was getting something off the top shelf of my bookcase today when I took a good look at the dusty mess that is the flower garden of the Michigan Lake Cottage. It is a pain to clean without damaging... Continue reading

Batch done... I like these, I need to make more, but they're hand colored so they take longer... I had fun with these, but ran out of purple paper... This shape didn't work for me, so I stopped after the... Continue reading

Elderberry syrup? Off to google....
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind, but as it stands now I think I'll have an extra.

There is something very zen-like about mass production. I don't have to give much thought to what my hands are doing, so my mind is free to wander. Yet I am also in the moment....the smell of freshly brewed coffee,... Continue reading

I like those too. :) As soon as I'm done with the current batch I'm going to make a bunch of them.

Much better! I'm sick of sewing, so used double sided tape to adhere the fabric to the pillows....just don't look at the back side of them. ;) Continue reading

I sewed the pillows yesterday, while watching reruns of Archer, now I have to make pillowcases. I don't think you can tell in the pictures, but in person, the white of the pillows is not as bright a white as... Continue reading

I missed the point. That's okay, though, because I really like these markers. I've never owned a good set of markers before. Succulent burnout has already occurred to me and is being prepared for. :)

I'm going to be even more organized soon, I've got little storage containers coming. :)

I spent a few hours yesterday and this morning making my hands sore with punches. I knew the markers Nancy raved about were going to arrive today, and I wanted to have shapes ready to color. They did arrive, but... Continue reading

Thanks for the the tutorial, I read it. It's how I make my pillows already :) My mom told me to do it that way....blind stitch, I think she called it.
Toggle Commented Feb 9, 2017 on starting on the bed at iseecerulean
I am much too particular about having the pillows the perfectly correct size to fit just so on the bed. There is no way I'd hire it out and subject someone else to my compulsion.

I used double stick tape on the sheets, but pillows look best when they're sewn. I've tried to make them with that iron on hem adhesive stuff before but it makes them stiff and they don't look natural.

I started making the bed first, since it's the largest piece of furniture in the room. It doesn't look like much yet, but it will be luxurious (hopefully) once the base and pillows are on. I have to sew pillows... Continue reading

Life sized furniture may not be as fun, but it is more necessary. :)
