Embroidery obsession- negative space

Smile embroidery for stitch swap

One of the things I'm obsessed with lately is embroidery in tiny little 3" and 4" hoops. I signed up for a swap and this is what I decided to make. I wish my photography skills were better, because it turned out really cute.

Pinned! Dresser makeover.

I've had a small wooden dresser for years. When I was growing up it was olive green and held paper and pens and school supplies. When I went to college I stole it, painted it black and stenciled a purple hydragea on top. Now it's badly peeling red and white from my son's room. I think when we move again and the baby gets a room I'll do something like this for her. How pretty is that!

Are you on Pinterest? The bulletin board of your dreams?

No? Just the bulletin board of MY dreams?

If you're not, you really should to take a look around. Meanwhile, I thought I'd start showing you some of my favorite crafts and boards.

Today's pick is... mine! This is my Crafty Inspiration pinboard. On that you'll find such delicious goodies as:

This cool Auburn War Eagle burlap pillow.
Patterns for a quiet book (MAN we need this!)
Completely cool thread storage. It does look like a pretty framed picture, no?

This adorable pink plaid horse. (Oh wait, that's my picture!)
