Quotes & Notes

I just discovered the exquisitely lovely Quotes & Notes via Craftgawker. The mix of printed basswood, creamy fabrics, and unique quotations (some even in French, HELLO?!?) make me kind of swoon. And get me excited for Christmas. (Yes, I know it’s not Halloween yet, but just look at the images below! You’ll see what I mean, I swear.)

Wordshop Wednesday (on Tuesday): Jamaica Makes…

Have you guys all seen Jamaica? I’m not talking about the island, though I hear that’s lovely, too. No no, I’m talking about Ms. Jamaica of the wonderfully awesome blog Jamaica Makes (crafts when she should be making dinner)! She and her blog make me smile for all sorts of reasons. For instance, yesterday she posted the following:

If that thank-you card doesn’t qualify as “rad,” I don’t know what does. Actually, wait, yes I do: all the old-school paper and fabric goodies in Jamaica’s Etsy shop and on her blog qualify as majorly rad. Here, check them out (be prepared to swoon):

Fabric Cuffs and Stitched Type from Ponder & Stitch

Thanks to the always-wonderful Xenia from Found Paper Co. for introducing me to these lovely little fabric cuffs from Ponder & Stitch earlier today. I am in love with the postcard cuffs, but absolutely ALL of them are adorable and beautifully crafted. The stitched type especially inspires me, and serves as a lovely postscript to my Stitched Type post earlier this year.

Check them out, please:

Spoonful of Chocolate Hope

I posted about Spoonful of Chocolate Hopes adorable recycled book handbags over on my other blog, Pauvre Plume, today. But I’m guessing a lot of my Words&Eggs readers would express equal interest in her literary creations, so… here you go.

You’re welcome.
🙂

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ChapterOneThe other day, I was very graciously introduced to the lovely recycled book handbags of Spoonful of Chocolate Hope. Haven’t you always wanted Jane Eyre or Anne of Green Gables hanging on your arm? Yeah, me too.

And as if the literary awesomeness of these bags weren’t enough, Ms. Spoonful’s mission proves even more admirable: all profits are going to her father, who is currently struggling to keep the house that he built with his own two hands when he immigrated to America.

On her Etsy site, Ms. Spoonful assures us that no books were harmed in the making of these lovely little handbags:

I take gently used books and only use the covers. I then take the sleeve and wrap it back on to the fully in-tact book and donate it to a Refugee Center here in Arizona called the IRC.
However, if you would like for me to make a new matching cover for the book, please let me know it would be an additional $15. You can view an example of the book cover here:

Some of my favorites, all of which are available in her Etsy store:

I am in love with the toile lining of this one...

Did I mention that Ms. Spoonful takes custom orders?? Yep. I’ve already been in touch with her about a Frenchified handbag… 🙂

Go forth and visit, please: SPOONFUL OF CHOCOLATE HOPE!

Thanks to LittleBrownPen for introducing me. In fact, you should probably go visit her as well, please.
