some favorites....

This came in the mail yesterday
 big fan of hand made soap
I love ETSY

My favorite catalog
 so visually inspiring and this cover is just simply
They have an super cool website here
 I found an amazing skin care product and have been using it for 6 months
Best store bought cookie!
by Kashi.
Not too sweet and 1 cookie is like a meal
...amaze balls if you ask me
no guilt- absolutely not.

Found a clever way to do my prints
 easier than the lino cut

...and yes, I am up to something
So what is your new favorite(s)?


  1. How wonderful to be dyeing again!
    Also, what materials did you use for the printing? That looks like such a great idea.
    Thanks for sharing the inspiration,

  2. Wow, some great things in this post. The soap looks divine, and you are dyeing, can't wait to see what you are up to with it :)

  3. are you dyeing again???? wow! Love the soap and enjoyed clicking the links :)

  4. Thank you so much for the skin care recommendation Camilla, my skin needs help!
    With the weather bouncing all over the place, along with my hormones, my skin
    could use a little extra attention so I will have to try this out.

    Can't wait to see what you're up to!

  5. I spy dye!! Can't wait to see what you are up to.. I have some daffodils flowers soaking on the back porch. Need to do a bit of reading before I attack! Did order a few new colors from Dharma Trading for the wools... can't wait to try them out. LOVE your stamps. love.

  6. ooh we have a lot in common! love derma e, prana (we have a prana store here!) and artisan soaps, i'll have to try roots. love your print making and WOOL. yes! this was a fun post i have a lot of favorites and especially LOVE getting mail!

  7. I love the things you have there! Well my favorites are (were!) Twist and Twine yarn, mandala painting, yoga stuff of all descriptions and of course soap too!! x

  8. So many links to explore!! My current favorite thing is chocolate chip, brown butter, nutella and sea salt cookies!

    Happy Weekend!! :)

  9. The last pic had me saying a mental "yay!". Your yarn is beautiful, I've kicked myself several times for not purchasing any while I had the chance!

  10. Please explain the printmaking?? I am trying to make my own stamps for mixed media art and having a really hard time finding things that will make a nice print/stencil and not bleed to the other side. I would welcome your findings!

    1. Plexiglass & wonder foam found at Dick Blick art supply. Once you apply your ink- turn it over to the textile/paper and use a rolling pin to apply even pressure. The other thing you can do is use "soft kut print block" and speedball carving tools also found @ Dick Blick. Good luck!

  11. Oh my...those printmaking props have me very very intrigued!

  12. Love everything here. I am a huge fan of homemde soaps too. I need a new skin care regime, thank you for sharing yours.
    You know I love the last pic best! :)


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
