What are you all up to this weekend? I've actually been VERY creative lately which is a huge change from the last few weeks. The coming week includes the last 5 days leading up to my Spring Break in which I EXCLUSIVELY plan to be creative. :) So in the meantime, I'm trying to keep up the newfound creativity by drawing in my sketchbook every day and making sure to read some inspiring blogs! Here are the results of the creative bursts I've had the past few days:

I made this moleskine sketchbook cover from the Style School class pattern! It turned out SO much better than I thought it could and I had been saving this fabric for something special! It's awesome to have colored pencils on hand with me at all times. I chose pencils from my Spring Palette to tuck in the front of my new cover!

Here are some plushies that I've been dreaming up for awhile now and I finally had the time and motivation to MAKE them! They turned out SO cute, especially the owl which my friend Tori lovingly named Gertrude. :)

Tori, Ian and I were also able to hit up the thrift on Friday too! Here's some of my great finds from the last few thrift trips:

I love that vintage woven handbag! It's going to be my new go-to purse for a night out to dinner. :)
Well I wish everyone a happy and productive Sunday with lots of creative ideas on the horizon! I know mine will be!

That Moleskine cover is adorable! I want one badly now. Unfortunately, I can't sew. You should make some more and sell 'em on Etsy! ;)
