The Royal Wedding Collection

[twitter style=”vertical” float=”left”]

Hear Ye, Hear Ye:

Please forgive me, but I’ve not been following all the press about the Royal Couple, the Royal Engagement or the Royal Wedding.  I did watch some of the wedding (the part where they said their vows and a few minutes after).  It was touching and brought back fond memories of my wedding day.    I’m so thankful that my wife and I are still together after 24 years.  That’s a big deal, you know?  A VERY big deal.

I pray that William and Kate will live a ‘happily-ever-after’ kind of life.  Seriously.  It will be tough to be the ‘royal couple’ and have all those crazy photographers in their faces all the time.

And You Thought This Was a Bloody Crafty Blog, Did You?

So, what does any of this have to do with crafting?  Hang on.  I’m getting there.  I’m sure you noticed all the beautiful, royal colors in William’s suit/uniform/whatever-that-was he was wearing.  Reds, blues, yellows.  Very British, of course.  And the white on white on white of Kate’s dress was pretty spectacular too.  Kudos to the designers of both outfits.

Maestro:  Cue the Wedding March

In honor of the royal wedding, I’m making up some travel-sized tissue holders in royal wedding colors.  Bold and beautiful for those who appreciate big color.  White on white with lace for those who drink cups of tea (and wipe their nose) with the pinky finger extended.  (Now that’s proper British etiquette!)  I’m also going to offer them at a special royal price.  They are normally priced at $4.00 each.  I’m going to be offering the royal collection at three for $10.00 + $2.50 shipping.  So…for $12.50 you can get three specially-crafted, wedding-themed tissue holders.  Keep one for yourself and pass along the other two as special gifts.

Cheerio! Pip-Pip!

In my best British accent:  “Something borrowed.  Something blue.  Something special.  Just for you.”

Here’s the link to my shop.  I plan to have the collection available before the weekend is over.


“Come On, Let Your Colors Burst”

Thanks for the reminder, Katy Perry.  Color SHOULD burst.  Especially this time of the year.    Spring- and summer-themed items should be full of color.

Projects with a springtime theme can, of course, be a bit softer or even pastel.  Summer colors should ‘pop’ but not be overpowering (think red, white and blue).

My project plan board is full of ideas for the upcoming season.  Admittedly, I’m a bit behind.  But not for long!  I’ve scoured my containers of fabric and have several big-color items ready for production.  In addition to working with bright colors, I’m going to be making several items that have linen as their main component but will have bold, contrasting colors to mix things up a bit.

Be ready for tissue holders and tote bags in this motif.

What projects are on your ‘drawing board’?  I’d love to know.  Leave a message and tell the world.

Crafty, huh?
Messy?  A little bit. Fun?  Oh yeah!
