Seunghee Suh did a feature on DIY blogs, including my own, for a story for the Columbia News Service. I was really flattered to be included (and quoted so extensively!) alongside such amazing DIYers like Grace of Stripes & Sequins, and Rosie Martin, from DIY Couture! Check it out below…
Thanks so much for the feature, Seunghee!
In other news, my in-laws have been visiting this past week and I’m still in the process of catching up now that they’ve gone. I’ll be sharing the tutorial for the DIY Awning Wrap Skirt I featured last week on my blog super-soon, promise!
Along with fellow DIY bloggers such as P.S. I Made This, I Spy DIY, A Pair and a Spare, Studs and Pearls, Glitter N Glue, one of my DIY projects was recently featured on MSN.com’s online magazine Glo!
See the whole slideshow below:

And if you’re looking for the how-to for that sequin tee I’m wearing, it’s right here:
Thanks so much to Glo.msn.com for the feature!!
Materials:sequins in leaf shapes or snowflake shapes / pearl-head pins in red or pearlized / round styrofoam balls (you can paint them different colors before using if you don’t like the white showing through) / glitter ribbon
Tools: glue gun / scissors
1. Cut a short length of ribbon, enough to go around the styro ball and create a hang loop.2. Use the glue gun to attach around the ball at the center. Loop the end of the ribbon over itself and glue together to hang.3. Use the pins to attach sequins all over the ball. For the holly ornament, use 2-3 leaf sequins strung on one pin, and for the snowflake ornament, use 1-2 sequins on one pin.4. Keep adding pinned sequins until the ball is completely covered.
I had the pleasure of taking a trip to Portland’s own Museum of Contemporary Craft awhile ago to contribute an article to Cut Out + Keep‘s online magazine Snippets. And it’s finally live!
Thanks so much to Cat and the whole Cut Out + Keep team who included me!
Though the museum is small, it does highlight the strong craft movement and history of a variety of disciplines, mainly focused on the Pacific Northwest. It was really interesting to gain a sense of time, place, and handiwork as displayed there.
Have any of you ever been to Portland’s Museum of Contemporary Craft?
