Sometimes between spliting time between our newborn "snuggle-bug" and his active whirlwind big brother, I do get a chance to sneak away and do something creative. It doesn't happen often right now, my time is extremely limited, and I think that if I am able to sew five strips of fabric together that it was a really good day. My projects are small, and seem to take an eternity until they are finished, but for now I am happy for those few moments that I do get.

What is inspiring me these days is a project using paper, fabric and buttons. (Oh, how I love buttons!) Usually when I use any of my beloved buttons, it is hard for me to let them go. Yes, I admit it... I am a hoarder. I like to keep those special buttons because they are... well, special. So, I decided to scan them in instead... and thus no tearful partings with any of my beloved notions. Do you like to hold onto things too instead of using them?

Entdecker Rabatt - 15%

Before our newest edition came along, I had a very, very long list of things that I wanted to accomplish before our world got turned upside down... and now I get to share with you something that I was finally able to check off the list! It's been in the back of my mind now for quite some time to open a second Dawanda shop, separate from the fabrics we sell, with the things that I have made. So, without further adieu... just a sneak peek of our Still Water Designs Accessories shop:

A lot what I have listed, you may have already seen in some form or another here, but now I've sorted things into "collections"... either by colors or fabrics. I was able to whip up a few things before my September due date, and here a just a few things you'll find in my shop:
I've added my jewelry items in addition to my sewn items, and I have to say that getting back into this detailed handiwork is something that I find very relaxing. Sometimes it's hard juggling back and forth between two passions, but if there is one thing that can tempt me to leave my sewing machine, it's making jewelry.

So, with all that being said, now is the perfect time for Dawanda to run a "Entdecker Rabatt" (Discovery Sale). Essentially 15% is being offered to "first-time-buyers", and since the shop is just opened, you can all be a "first". The sale starts today, October 15th, and runs through October 21st, 2012.

Long Overdue Introduction

I suppose it is time to introduce you to the reason for my silence. Another sweet and precious boy with a full head of hair... just like his brother. I've been recovering slowly and have taken the time to ease into our new life status... so, let me intoduce you to:
