oh gosh, I first read that as "I'm buying a horse"  I think I need to get my eyes checked Cheesy

Congratulations!!!!!!!!  It is very exciting, enjoy the ride!

On the horse, or the house?  Wink Cheesy

Woohoo, sB!
Now for next STS, we can all offer home decor items for you Smiley

Yes, definitely! I'm dreaming up all the cool things we can do to the new space. I'm trying to settle on wall paint in my head...do I go obnoxiously beautifully bright, or subtle cool colors? hmmm.

I have two claims to work on this long weekend and then I think I may be done claiming for this round since I am in the process of BUYING a HOUSE! It's crazy and rather overwhelming lol. But the projects will be a nice distraction.  Smiley

trina - your paintings are so inspiring! I especially love "sunset after the storm".

So I've been a bit quiet around here because my life has been taken over by house hunting. Buuuuttt our very first offer was accepted so I can't stop myself from dreaming and planning what we're going to do with our soon-to-be house! I expect after we move in there's going to be a lot more houseware goods popping up on my list  Grin Grin I need to finish up the OWS swap claims I have, and then I'm going to be firmly in nesting mode haha.  Cheesy

Hi! I'm Emma, living in Michigan USA right now. I've gotten my BFA in art, and now am biding my time working til I figure out my next move. I love weird, random things, inappropriate humor, and beautiful art. My favorite colors right now are teal, bright red, mossy green, deep blues, and blue-green. I love all colors except neons and pastels. Right now I've been super loving geometric art especially crystal forms and chevrons, topography,  I have no allergies, so no worries there. My pinterest and profile should give you a good idea of my style and preferences, but I'm super friendly so please feel free to ask me anything. Big wishes are IN BOLD Examples of a lot of the items listed below can be found on my pinterest.


***Sewn/Embroidery Crafts***

CROSS BODY MINI PURSE - I'd like it to be the perfect size for my smart phone, wallet and keys so not too huge. In a ethnic style type print if possible. I've fallen in love with these kinds of bags! Here's some examples of what I'd love! If it could have an outside pocket that'd be awesome, and a zipper top instead of a flap. Thanks so much Averia!!

Need to organize my time better so I can make more claims.

Me too! Usually I'm pretty quick to get working on claims but I forgot right after I signed up that I was going to be away last weekend so that cut into my crafting time. But I'm about 60% done on my first claim and am aiming to spend a lot of quality time this weekend finishing up my first felt foods! I have a feeling this is going to become a bit addictive... Grin

I just got back from a weekend trip yesterday and have since then been playing with my felts, experimenting with different food shapes  Cheesy This is too much fun lol.

I'm heading out for a weekend vacay with one of my besties in Florida (though personally, the heat/humidity has already gotten a tad too high for my tastes!). I plan on mailing out the last of my claims when I get back! Thanks to AM and Loves for hosting an awesome swap!
