I'm a huge admirer of everything artist Tracie Lyn Huskamp does, from her delicate butterflies to her stunning flowers. Try this card tutorial and you'll be a fan too.

Within five minutes of reading the CraftFail blog I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. Thank you, Heather Mann, for reminding us that perfection is
highly overrated.

Betz White
Betz White does so many
amazing things—she designs fabric, patterns, knits, writes books and makes incredible creations out of felt. This quick tutorial on taking tucks in sweater ribbing is
simply brilliant.

 

sew4home
PI have to admit, the fabric used on these cedar sachets drew me in—I'm a nut for those Melody Miller typewriters. But this Sew4Home project is great in any fabric.

How About Orange
How about wallpapering your door with fabric? How About Orange's Jessica Jones shows you how to do it (it doesn't look difficult at all).

 

Angela Liguori
I had serious studio envy after seeing Hillary Deane's gorgeous photographs of book and letterpress artist Angela Liguori's studio.

Quill & Fox
I fell in love with artist Yas Imamura's work the minute I saw it. If I had one- tenth of her talent I could die happy. This wedding suite she designed is one of my favorites, probably because the invitation looks like a little book.

 

Rambling Rose
Patty Van Dorin’s Little Chunky Rose Book, with its sewn pages made from vintage ephemera, makes my heart skip a beat. She's a fantastic jewelry artist
as well.
