PayPal Must Love Me

As I started typing this entry, I decided that I should start a catagory entitled ‘purchases’. However, somehow that would probably entail disclosing how much money I am putting into my crafty hobby and I probably really don’t want to know that. Why bring this up? I’ll blame it on the enablers at Pattern Review and Ebay.


There was some discussion the other day about the new Ottobre magazine being online. I really miss Burda’s kids magazine, they had such cute and trendy clothes. So, I decided to hop on over and check out what Ottobre had to offer. That’s when I fell in love with this:

As soon as I saw this, I decided that Taylor needs a trench like this. I also liked the older kids clothes, trendy and stylish, but without being Britney Spears like. Needless to say, I found a seller on Ebay and bought myself my first copy of this magazine. I’m going to let Taylor sift through it first to see what grabs her. Hopefully, she’ll pick the trench too!
Speaking of recent purchases, my Emma One Sock onionskin arrived. It’s so perfect. I love the colors and she just packages everything up so nicely, I didn’t even want to unfold it! Now to decide what I’m going to make with it. Has anyone ever tried making a dress with onionskin? Do you think that it’s too sheer? I’m also drawn to her Mona Lisa stretch, wouldn’t this make a fantastic jacket? Alright, I’m hiding my credit card now…..

    At the beginning of the year I started a fabric tally on my blog. I also keep a spread sheet of how much I spend on crafts. Not pretty. I haven’t updated my blog stats in while (since I’ve been on maternity leave) and I’m scared to know where I now stand. YIKES!

    Very cute trench! I hear you about Linda’s packaging at EOS. She does such a great job. I think the onionskin could be a dress if you use a lining. I think you could get away with a shirt unlined, but I would be a little nervous to have an unlined dress.
    I think you should blog about whatever you want. It’s really nobody’s business to judge what another spends on crafting.
