The ReSew blog tour, day five: everyone flock to Crafty Nest!

 

Welcome to day five of the

INCREDIBLE

BLOG TOUR!

Today the ReSew tour is dropping by Crafty Nest, built by a woman with a sharp eye for style and a passion for doing chic on the cheap. I first found Monica's site when Jack and I made these fabulously huge snowflakes two Christmases ago, and I've followed her ever since.

Monica's had an impressive work history as a graphic designer for O, The Oprah Magazine, Real Simple, and Sunset. Just head over to her tutorial page and you'll see why she's a favorite to follow. Plus, she loves to upcycle! I got a kick out of what she says about upcycling on her blog:

"I attempt to keep my projects as easy as possible for people like me who don’t have a lot of time to kill. However, they invariably end up being more difficult than I plan."

Monica, I couldn't have said it better myself.

Head on over to Crafty Nest today for a Q & A with Monica and me, and enter to win a copy of ReSew while you're there!

the ReSew blog tour, day three: meet Amy, and her very creative side

Welcome to day three of the

BLOG TOUR!

If you are a quilter–or if you've ever wanted to be–you will love the view over at:

Amys-Creative-Side-large

I think I'd like to dub the woman behind Amy's Creative Side with a new name–Amy-zing! Her blog shot into much-deserved fame from the get-go; she has her own beautiful quilt book out, called Modern Basics; and she and a friend have singlehandedly created the Sewing Summit, a sewing and blogging conference for the modern sewist, to be held this October in Salt Lake City. Whew! (When I think about the Sewing Summit I get so excited I almost pee my pants. Seriously.)

Head on over to Amy's place to get her take on ReSew, see some interior shots from the book, and enter to win a free copy of the book too! And while you're there, don't miss the chance to check out this prolific quilt designer's work. She is a powerhouse of ideas for gorgeous, streamlined, modern style. I wanna drape my house with her quilts, inside and out. My grass and trees, too.
