I'm Back

I can't believe I haven't been able to sit down and work on Simply June since December! But, I'm back and ready to create! As I have mentioned on, my husband and I have been in the process of adopting a little boy from Russia for over a year. We took our first trip to meet our son Kolya (Nikolai) just before Christmas. In all, we took three trips to Moscow and finally brought our precious son home last month. As you can imagine, we have all been adjusting to our new life together. But, we are all doing well and Kolya is a growing, happy and healthy 22 month old! My craftiness is now fit into naptimes and evenings and I am so inspired by so many crafty Mom's out there as I read their craft blogs. Thank you for your inspiration!

I have recently been working on these magnet sets for Simply June. The magnets are made from glass and come in a variety of fun designs. The actual magnets themselves are heavy duty button magnets and work great at keeping your favorite photos and artwork on your fridge. These sets will appear on shortly and will sell at $7.50 for a tin of six. These make a great gift to just let someone know you are thinking about them.

Here are a couple of new fabrics for a new product line I hope to create - dishtowels. I have to admit that I love dish towels. They can really add a lot of color and design to your kitchen. I especially love old retro designs and I am hoping to infuse a bit of that into this new project. I'm hoping to get a few done next week and have them up at Simply June. This fun blue and brown fabric is a design by Michael Miller called Disco Dot. The retro kitchen print is another Michael Miller design called Domestic Goddess. I have a number of other fabrics in mind for this project including some Amy Butler designs, but I need to do some searching online as my local fabric store was really low on their selection.
