When I was out gallivanting yesterday, I came across the latest issue of Blueprint Magazine. The cover story, “Out-of-the-Box Organizing,” caught my eye promising “10 Ideas You’ve Never Seen Before (trust us).”
Have you never seen these ideas before? I’m puzzled.
So you’ve painted and decoupaged a bunch of wooden boxes. I was so hoping for some new ideas. Oh well—I still love ya Martha.
Luckily, a whole mailbox full of new books showed up to distract me. Lots of great ones which were all cheaper than the cost of a single issue of Blueprint.
My favorite was this cool simple book I bought about manufacturing children’s clothing:
It was written by the manufacturers of JM Originals, a successful children’s clothing company.
It was a very short book with just a page or two on each part of the manufacturing process.
Wow…look how many different patterns are on their rack! I’m jealous!
Here two employees are laying the pattern markers on the fabric.
Lots of different sewing machines and sergers are used.
And let’s not forget the Pattern Notcher…now I’ll be jonesing for a hydraulic pattern notcher…This one makes my handheld one look like a toy…LOL!
The hell with diets…I’m working out with my personal trainer three times a week…so I deserve a little caramel here and there. And I have absolutely no guilt…as they are beyond yummy. First arrived a huge brick of caramel from Crave on Etsy. It was very delicious. However, today these soft Vanilla Caramels showed up from Ebay seller, Sweets by Season…OMG!!! This sweet seller even threw in some of her magnificent Praline Pecan Caramels…I’m in Heaven! Check out all her different caramel varieties and other sweet treats…you’ll be hooked! She currently has a “Buy 2 Dozen, Get 1 Dozen Free” sale going on!
Like my new hand painted sign from Just My Luck Designs on Etsy? I love it!!!
