Sampling is my favorite thing.

30 Mar 2007

I love The Sampler! And I love Marie, who brings The Sampler into the world. Look at all this wonderful creativity from my March Sampler:

First, how adorable is this felt finger puppet (above), from abbey christine? I’ve been taunting the cat with it all morning. Be sure and check out her Etsy store for all kinds of awesome felt creations. Her Royal Tenenbaum family finger puppets made me giggle with glee.

Speaking of felt, here’s a fantastic little sewing kit from Wonderland Q. Tucked inside are all these great patches, screened on wool felt. How useful, and charming! I’m already eyeing my jackets and totes for opportunities.... Incidentally, you can get the patches individually on her website for a mere $1.50 each!

Now, look at this cuff, by AmyD. What a simple, effective design! I love wearing it -- it’s so comfortable, and looks great. She makes all kinds of great clothes -- and aprons -- check out her website.

I adore these little bird nest earrings from Yankee Girl Designs. Very vintage-y looking. If you like bird nests, as I do, there's a whole line of nest-inspired jewelry at the website.

Things That Make Scents contributed this wonderful-smelling Aroma Bag, which is for hanging in a closet, car, bathroom, etc. The fragrance is "Snuggle Soft," and it's just the kind of light, clean smell I like. This is destined for my closet. And, check out the genius scented wax-dipped bears at their site -- I've always thought these were cool -- a bear air freshener!

. . . And I know Susan already blogged about this, but ReproDepot also contributed to The Sampler this month, with sampler packs of squares. I love their fabrics so much! These two patterns absolutely kill me -- Cubicles! Sock Monkeys! Good lord!

holy crap those royal tenenbaums finger puppets are the coolest things i've ever seen! i'm planning to contribute to the sampler in probably 2 or 3 months, and i already can't wait to receive my first sampler package!!

my plan was to contribute some zines, and some wristbands/cuffs (kinda like this), but now i'm worried a lot of people already contribute cuffs...


thank you so much! the intern and I love listening to craftypod! and to be mentioned in your blog is fantastic! woot! xoxoxoxox


Yes, that AmyD stuff is cool. It's so simple. I got a "rock & roll" shirt from her to wear on stage and she sent along a bracelet like the one you mentioned. I like it. I'm getting a skirt for my wife's birthday as a surprise.
The Sampler is such a fun thing...
