My Top 10 Favorite Podcasts to Sew to
Ok, this is a bit of a departure for a sewing and vintage blog, but lately I've been really into podcasts. I especially like to listen to them when I sew (see, it is relevant!). They're a little more engaging than just listening to music, but I can still fo...

Graphic Design Projects
Hey everyone! Yes, I'm still alive. A big reason for the silence around here this last month or so is that the Fall semester is in full swing and I am back in school full-time. I know I sound like a nerd but I'm so excited about my classes! I'm taking Photo...
