still standing

I was procrastinating writing my Good Stuff column today when I stumbled across today's featured artist.. it just seemed like karma..
So without further ado, this is Amy of Julia Belle Vintage who also happens to be a member of CSST on Etsy.

Amy has created a niche in the vintage inspired jewelry game by incorporating vintage stamps and

ephemera along with buttons, baubles and charms into unique and affordable bracelets. Check out this darling chocolate and pink number featuring stamps and buttons in the chain. I also love this one with the coffee label since I am a die hard coffee lover.

Regardless of your favorite colors, if you are into the vintage feel and love unique accessories, Amy is sure to have something to fit your style. Check her out!

In other news.. I am finally feeling better. I had a bit of a relapse this week but slowly the cough it subsiding and I am not coughing up as much yuck. I have an intermittent sore throat but I guess that's pretty normal with this stiff. I am thankful that it didn't turn into the flu which appears to have reached epidemic proportions this week nationwide.

I have managed to get back into the studio and kick start my muse enough to finish up Lilia's book in our "Vintage Valentine" round robin. Lilia included a bunch of loose "folders" in a lovely fabric cover. This is my inside spread and then my outside pages. I liked having loose sheets to work on so I could get them in my sewing machine. I want to stitch on everything these days it seems. I hope Lilia likes it.

Hope you are all well. More soon...
