Today seemed like a good day to catch up on some things. I managed to get some photos taken of recent treasures and crafting as well as list some items for sale on TIB.

I made these fun coasters last week! They were a great project to use up some scraps. Here is the tutorial I used from The Sometimes Crafter.

Another great tutorial I tried out last week was from Make It and Love It for this camera strap cover! I used some of the great fabric I purchased from  Walmart a few months ago. This would be great project for using scraps but I didn't really have any large enough that coordinated!

Managed to find a little short tin out shopping to match the one I thrifted two weeks ago at Goodwill. Now the tall one has a friend!

Finally, one last thrifted treasure from yesterday, this lovely vintage fabric! It's actually a drape panel, but I shall be cutting it up to use as fabric. I want to make a pleated skirt out of it!
