Great Dresser Re-Do : Centsational Girl 
A little paint goes a long way in this dress make-over from Centsational Girl. She found a lovely vintage dresser with Mid Century lines and painted the laminate top and restored the wooden drawers. Pleasing both the ‘wood purists’ and “paint all the things!”in all of us.

Clever tank top storage. I’ve seen shower curtain rings used for a few things (scarves, purses and even hair elastics) but this is the first I’ve seen them used for tank tops. I think it’s a great way to free up space in a dresser drawer.
I could not find a source for this anywhere, Google just kept leading back to Pinterest where just the image was pinned, not a website. So if you have a source I would love it, thanks!

I’m speechless. Almost. These are amazing. I only wish this Etsy shop had more so I could by one!
Also, I love how they tell you that if you don’t know a seamstress (pick me!) They would make great note holders on a desk. So very true.

This year I have became more immersed in the Indie Craft world and I have been blessed to meet some truly incredible and truly talented people. Anybody can sew or create something, but it takes someone of true talent to take the ordinary, say kitchen apron, and elevate it to a work of art and yet that is exactly what Modern Wednesday does.

It is funny how small the world is, when my family reconnected with an old family friend and I found out just how talented his partner is. Missy, the creative mind and hard working hands behind Modern Wednesday is one of the most talented seamstresses I have met. She has a flair for vintage style meets modern glam that is borderline badass, but then can turn around and create a plushy so adorable that any child (or child at heart) will swoon.  

Modern Wednesdays’ goodies are made with an overwhelming variety of gorgeous fabrics, some vintage and quirky (like the Popples apron featured above that I am VERY proud to own) and some that are glamourous enough that they could be sported to a black tie affair. 

To see more of Modern Wednesdays creations or to purchase something for yourself, check her out on facebook, Etsy or Indiemade:

Also, having placed several myself, I know that custom orders are welcome!

My friend and fellow artisan (photographer, baker and sewist) Chelsea wrote this sweet blog post about my creative sewing business Modern Wednesday. It would be just ducky if you showed her some love, and checked out my links if you haven’t already.

Storage Geek turned 3 today! Wow! Just..wow. I might get a bit misty eyed for a moment or three.

 DIY Jewelry Blocks | Emily Henderson
A little glue, a little block of wood and a brass dowel, suddenly you have some chic jewelry display and/or storage. This project can easily be done with found items like a kids toy block and a super light curtain rod. (Or am I the only one who has one or more hiding in a closet somewhere?)

This cassette tape change purse speaks to me on so many levels. One of which is that I am old enough to have owned a Barbie (and the Rockers) cassette tape or two. :) There is no tutorial for this one specifically, but I’m sure you could find a similar one.
