Janome

Guess what was waiting for me by my front door the other evening? Yuppers...my NEW Janome....I've sooo missed sewing on my cards! I'm hoping that I can talk one of the guys at work to see if they can fix my other Janome. If it can be salvaged, I'll have one for paper and the other for fabric...yes, I want to get into "real" sewing...thanks to the super fabulous Amy Butler...how can anyone resist??? I've also recently discovered Heather Bailey via Craftzine.





I love cupcake shops....Yes, I love to eat cupcakes but I really love cupcake shops because of their fun interior design! Way back when I was younger and starting off in community college, I took interior design classes...unfortunately, I wasn't focused enough on school/studying so I ended up with a non-transferable general business degree...what the heck?! That totally came back to haunt me when I decided to pursue my bachelors degree a couple years ago...I "had" to take the math and science that I was trying to avoid when I was younger and yes, I did graduate with an Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences degree with a concentration in Psychology...whew! Anyways....sorry for detour...This sweet Cupcakes shop is by Stanley Park in Vancouver. Isn't it absolutely a-dorable?? I **love** all the pink & brown teamed up with the oh-so-cute retro look!!!

  1. WOW, the store is FAB!!! Ok, so tell me, why a Janome? I have a regular, Singer I think, sewing machine. Why is this nice? I've seen two ppl getting this in the last week.
