Featured in Fresh Style Magazine!

Are you enjoying the long weekend? I am and I don't want it to end! My husband was away on his annual fishing trip to the BWCA with his friends so I spent time with my magazines and craft supplies which have felt a bit neglected lately :) 

One of the magazines is Fresh Style and Country Mouse & I are thrilled to be featured! I spent lots of time on the phone with Country Mouse this weekend describing everything in the magazine, because she has been at the lake up North and hasn't been to the city to pick up her copy yet (she is very jealous!).

I love the layout and styling of the magazine, there are lots of diy projects and creative spaces to get you inspired. In fact two of our favorite fabric designers are featured: Amy Butler and Heather Bailey! There are lots of other talented artists and bloggers featured as well including Ashley Ann Campbell.

I was at Barnes & Nobel this weekend and wanted to show everyone in the magazine aisle our feature but restrained myself. So I know they carry it, but you can also order yours online here. Definitely pick one up for some easy diy projects and reading on decorating & creating! 

A special thank you to Karen who contacted us about this feature, she is a total sweetheart and joy to work with! And also to our talented friend Shanon who took the photo of Country Mouse & I; her buttons photo is next to our ironing board in the picture.

Weekend Photos

Last week flew by with Country Mouse. Here's a little recap...
Craftstravaganza! So many wonderful vendors and shoppers!

Spring Soiree in North Saint Paul with Design Vertigo, a fabulous shop!

Just a few of the items I purchased at the shows and local shops. We even got to have our picture taken at the Spring Soiree, we loved this idea! 

I took Country Mouse to a wine bar in Afton, yum!

 Just a few of the projects we worked on. My chair has a new cover :) And the quilt we started for my 30th birthday (back in January!) is almost complete!

Sewing and Shows

Some of us have been very busy. Others seem to tire out just watching the busy ones :) Country Mouse has been here since last weekend's Craftstravaganza show and we have been sewing, sewing, sewing! We are getting ready for one more show tomorrow, at the Spring Soiree in Saint Paul.  And we are trying out some new ideas and even sewing a few things for ourselves. We'll share more with you soon! Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
