Warm and Cozy

I am not sure if I have ever welcomed the month of January so warmly. 2008 is off to a nice, slow start so far. I've been crocheting, knitting, sewing and planning some new projects. I've even got some Valentine's day projects in mind. It's nice to feel prepared for a holiday rather than panicking at the mere thought (ahem, Christmas 2007 for example).

The craft room project is now underway after being abandoned for coaster making and order processing way back in September. We're back to choosing paint colors. I'm still liking grey it's just a matter of finding the right grey. Who knew there were so many shades of grey?

I've been making these coffee cup sleeves from sweaters. Super fun to make and totally addictive.

There's all sorts of new stuff in the Little Acorn Vintage Shop. Stop by and take a look. I've listed some vintage and Japanese fabrics, trims and housewares. I'm trying to add new stuff daily.

Wow, those coffee sleeves are really cute! What a great idea. They would be all cozy and warm in the hand. Sounds good right now.

I dig the coffee sleeves!

I didn't realize you could sell items on etsy that weren't handmade or supplies for handmade stuff. The new shop looks great.
