I'm having fun today discovering more fab blogs! Those clips are beautiful, so detailed. I love listening to The Lucksmiths - fun lyrics and upbeat tunes, great to sing along to while I stitc.

intastellaburst said...

I love to create all sorts of things; recently I've gained a lot more confidence about dressmaking (although I'm still definitely a beginner) and the satisfaction of making something to wear and be proud of is immense! I often find myself putting Frank Black's Teenager of the Year LP on the record player when the sewing machine comes out.
Thank you for the generous giveaway!

Clare said...

Wow - I am discovering so many new blogs today! I am also participating - but VERY new to this!
At the moment I haven't really worked out my "Craft Space" - so I sit in our dinning room (which is also hubby's office area) and we had a mix on this weekend using Spotify (love it) - my Fav at the moment is Copperhead Road by Steve Earle!
Thanks for the opportunity!

Thanks for the giveaway! I love making quilts! Usually in slience as the rest of the house is sleeping!

birrrd said...

so many nice colours combined in your stuff. adorable.

i just discovered how fun and easy it is to do rubber stamps. So I spend some time doing that.
At the moment I don't listen to music while crafting and working. There's always so many birds in front of the window singing. It gives a good and calm athmosphere.

now i need to have a second look at the owls and dots and puppets.

angelina said...

i put on bill monroe and got to sewing up my quilt blocks today !!! x

Mruna Mistry said...

The pics of the garlands just brightened up my day...I love the little matryoshka pins...they are adorable!

Tara Smith said...

These are all too adorable! I like to listen to all different kinds of music while crafting... depends on what kind of inspiration I need. But lately, just the sound of my wind chimes has been inspiration enough.

Mandi @ make it dear said...

Crafty like a Fish said...

I like to create bags, typically. Though I have embroidered things in the past. I have to say, those clips are absolutely gorgeous! As for music, I typically put on a movie I've watched a million times. That way I don't have to watch it to enjoy what's going on. Nothing's better than being in the middle of pinning a seam to hear "You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means..." :)

Sarah W said...

Your ideas are so cute. My sewing room is a pretty quiet place. I work as a musician and am happy to be without music for a while!

Melanie said...

Love the clips! they are beautiful

Sara said...

I love to create quilts and I love Doris Day music.

Jeannie D said...

I love to sew and knit and listen to classical music while "creating"!

Crystal Arcand (3Stairs) said...

Oh boy - I need those owls! I like to create whatever inspires me - it could be a handmade card, bookmark, Artist Trading Card, or crocheted item. I like to listen to Pandora radio while I craft - usually the Glee Cast station, but lately I've been listening to the Adele station.

BarbaraH said...

I've known to do some sewing and am currently immersed in the world of wool felting. I like to listen to Ani Difranco while I'm creating. ooh or Beastie boys. Makes me feel powerful.

Gabrielle said...

Your clips are so amazing! I love sewing with felt too, I love the texture and colours. I also make a lot of bags and purses. Thanks for the giveaway, you should check out mine.

PS: do you use a felt punch for those perfect little circles or do you cut them by hand?

Sarcastic Quilter said...

These are fantastic "prizes" thank you for the chance to win.

I love to create quilts and my favorite song? Well that's such a tough one because it depends on my mood but I actually enjoy Disney movie music and other "fun" stuff I can feel young at heart with. :)

Candice said...

Oh, the clippies are just sew darling- I don't actually listed to anything- I just like quiet to have some thinking time :)

Heather said...

I'm really new to crafting so anything that comes together as planned or at least not as a total disaster is good for me. :P On an Adele kick lately. Just plug it into pandora and let it go. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

deserae said...

Love the hair clips! I love to quilt. I just turn on my ipod and listen to a mix of everything!

Doreen said...

Hi Shelley
Love your work. I think my favorite are your owls. Your detail work is so beautiful. And so are your girls. We also have two daughters, and it is just so much fun watching them mature into young adults (they are now 22 & 18). My fave music is Keane and Cold Play. Hours can fly by when I sneak into my craft cave (it is tiny) and carve out some "me" time. Hope you visit me soon at http://altered-artworks.blogpost.com

Spontaneous Threads said...

Wow, everything is wonderful, I love the owls and the garland and the little dolls…… I listen to anything by Vampire Weekend. (and sometimes I sing along)

What a fabulous giveaway...a real treat...I like making jewelry and accessories and mostly watch a movie or a TV soap while I craft...Do come over and check out my giveaway too....jewelsofsayuri@gmail.com

Jessica Jo said...

Currently I love to create yarn, but I am also a sewist and a crocheter and anything else I can get my hands on. I'm pretty eclectic, if crafts and everything else as well. Musuc too, though I don't really like listening to things while I'm crafting for some reason. Never thought about it until now...

Jasmine said...

I fed your swedish fish:). I don't listen to music while I'm sewing, as my 60 year old machine is rather...rumbly. But, when I'm cutting out patterns or fabric (or just generally puttering about) in my sewing room, my toddler and I listen to Guster. My favorite song at the moment is 'Jonah' off their newest album.

Lulu said...

I love that garland (and am coveting some for my september wedding!) I love to create clothing whether it is knitting hats/mittens or sewing dresses and skirts

Micah and Catherine said...

I love making christmas ornaments. I don't have a favorite song I like crafting to so I just turn on Pandora and let it decide.

danette said...

I love making fabric flowers. Anything country.

Svenja said...

OMG!!! Cant believe what I see..

What I listen when I sew.. There is only one Song "Rockstar" from Nickelback. ;) Love it

Svenja

Caroline said...

I like making anything really, would love to get into making quilts but I don't have the time at the moment! Hmm, music-wise I don't listen to any, probably a safety hazard - knowing me I would sew over the earphones !!

Trinity said...

Your matryoshkas are gorgeous! And while I sew, I love to listen to anything by Beirut. They're so mind-mellowing. :)

shelly said...

I love to sew stuff, mostly clothes for my toddler and myself. I'm not really one for music. I'd rather have the TV on in the background. Seinfeld is my favorite.

Meryl said...

Oh, those owls! I love to knit and I like to listen to the Wailin' Jennys.

Catherine said...

First time to your blog...I love your art!! Everything is great but OMG those owls are so stinkin' ca-ute!!!!! Keep up the great work. My own art lately has focused mostly on paper goods and handmade cards, though I am trying to teach myself spinning as well. I have to listen to classical when I craft....if there's lyrics, I get too wrapped up in signing along and don't concentrate on my work enough lol.

Oh my I LOVE LOVE LOVE the owl clips! My favorite songs to listen to are by Jack Johnson, they really make me zone in on my projects and I seem to get everything done on time!

Jessica said...

I find most of my sewing is gift-related, so I am still figuring out what I like to sew best, but I LOVE to write and when I do I tend to listen to bands from the 90s like Fountains of Wayne. Thanks for the chance, and for entering my giveaway! Isn't it fun to find that you exist in duplicate online? :D

NinjaEema said...

Beautiful stuff! I make terrariums with my boyfriend and we listen to a variety of records while doing so, my current favorite is Nancy and Lee (Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood).

Alissabeth said...

Your felt creations are just adorable, oh my gosh! I could stare at those owls all day, I love how detailed and sweet they are.

I love to create all kinds of things---artist trading cards, tiny (and often lopsided...) handbound books, needle felted stuff, but I'm mainly a crocheter at the moment. Some of my favourite music to listen to while I create is anything by John Darnielle, who records as the Mountain Goats and is my favourite lyricist ever. I also adore working to Elliott Smith's sweet, soft, melancholy songs. (Good for cooking to, too, for some reaosn.)

Jessica said...

I love to create with yarn! Mostly I knit, but when I need a card I bust out some mean papercrafting. My favorite happy song right now is I am the buffalo

I love to sew and knit. I don't listen to music when I'm creating something; I actually leave the TV on and listen to whatever is on at the moment (usually crime shows). Thanks for the giveaway!

My favourite kind of craft is refashioning... I am also currently about to finish a giant granny square blanket and have started a Therapy Quilt using paper pieced hexagons... I like most creatives have about 5 WIP on the go...lol Fav song at the moment to listen to is Jason Mraz Make it Mine!!

Your felts are adorable! I love Mika and the Mama's and the Papa's They are so much fun still after all these years.

Irina said...

I love your work, it's so colourful and lovely! I like sewing, quilts, bags, pouches and clothes... also paper crafting. I like lots of songs... but maybe lately I like listening to trad music

LaraM said...

I love trying out new techniques - right now I have a little pudgy baby, so I'm having fun potato stamping onesies for her. I love listening to happy songs like Feist's Mushaboom while I do so :)

Lolinkins said...

Oh, I would love to win all the 3 things! They are so nice! I normally don't listen much to music while quilting or sewing... I prefer to have the TV on to any program that may be playing at that time.

Hi, this may just be the cutest giveaway i've seen so far!

I'm still a novice crafter, so i tend to stick to little projects, but i love to have my 'sit n stitch' playlist going in the background, full of the old songs i remember from my childhood and other mellow stuff like coldplay - it helps me stay relaxed when i break ANOTHER thread or stab the needle into my finger!

thanks, emma007(at)iinet(dot)net(dot)au

Oh wow, those babushkas and owls are to die for, they are so cute!!!

I am an eclectic crafter so love to create anything from jewellery (my main love) to sewing totes, soft toys and vintage doily bunting to upcycling crockery into new creations. My musical tastes are also eclectic, LOL, but I usually listen to the latest pop or rock music while I craft. :)

Tas said...

I sew but at the moment I can't stop knitting. Cardigans, dresses, scarves, beanies. If the kids aren't home, I ramp up my ipod faves- everything from daggy 80s music to Lady GaGa and Pink to theatrical music.
(Oh, those matroyshka brooches are divine!)

Jennifer Ladd said...

I love to make bags ... all kinds of bags. Favorite song to listen to? Hmmm ... I have this album of Motown love songs that I adore - always fun to sew while listening to that.

Thanks for the chance to win! I love all the prizes!

I love to make dresses for my girls, and food for all the family. I like to do one thing at a time, so I don't listen to music while I work! I usually work when the kids are sleeping, and silence is NICE. Thanks for the giveaway!!

I love to knit and sew and crochet and stitch. Tonight I'm going to be cross stitching a card for my brothers wedding and I'll be listening to some Bob Dylan albums as he's 70 years old today.

Love your stuff. I'm going to etsy now to look to your shop

Deb said...

This is so fun! Thanks for the chance - great giveaway! I love to sew...lots of little baby things and embellished things and quilts and such. I don't listen to much while I'm sewing...usually just the chaos my three boys make. Or, the washing machine/dryer, as my sewing space is in the laundry room!

Jingle said...

I love the garlands - they would brighten up any room - and the matroyshka clips are darling! So detailed. I like to create custom paper dolls of friends and card with old photos - and I just started trying to sew. The Gossip is a great high energy band for creating! Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

Laura said...

I love to quilt but I usually listen to audiobooks if I have the luxury of alone time while quilting. If not then I am listening to whatever disney movie is playing in the background for my daughter (on whom those clips would look adorable by the way!)

sandandstarfish said...

How fabulous! You have such an eye for detail! Amazing amazing amazing!
I just started really making bags/purses but I LOVE making them! I always have such different moods when I sew and Pandora really seems to help me through them ;) but I've been listening to a lot of Adele lately. LOVE her!
Thanks so much for hosting!

I am all about jewelry-making. I love to listen to The Cars while crafting. I found this CD at Best Buy for less than $2, Best of The Cars. The awesome cheapness made me wonder about my choice in music but I dont care!
