*new and improved

this stack of cream felt circles is what occupied my time for about thirty minutes yesterday.
It would have taken me much, much longer had my husband not sat down with me and helped.
Did I mention that I love him?
I love him for so many reasons, not the least of which being that he has no problem cutting out cream felt circles.
Let me also say that he is left handed and we have no left handed scissors.
And I didn't hear a peep out of him complaining about that fact.
I could name a few men that probably would rather die than cut out fabric,
but it is one way that my husband speaks his love so loudly to me:
spending time with me even if it is helping me with a project.
*Single men, take note.
[married men, it probably wouldn't hurt you to catch on too]
But since this blog does not have a large following of men, ignore the past 3 lines.
So, can you guess what I'm working on?
This time, it does not rhyme with *flockings..........
It does happen to rhyme with camp jade.
I'll post pictures this afternoon.
I have a few more circles to cut!
yay! I finished cutting out my circles in a pinch
and I am so happy with the finished product!
now on to lamp #2...........


  1. no-world-way! that is awesome, sarah.
    where, oh where, is your etsy shop????

  2. are you EVEN kidding me!! This is so fantastic......I can't stand it! I totally need one for my lamp at the studio.......

    ....seriously you need to start an etsy shop so that you can sell such brilliance:)


  3. Wow! You are so creative. Love that lamp shade. I think you need to start your own magazine - Martha Stewart move over. = )

  4. WHAT?!! YOU MADE THAT?? Holy moly! I love it! You are way too crafty! Great job! :)

  5. thanks pals! I really need to say that I saw something very similar at IKEA a few months ago. I really wanted to buy the lamp shade, but was told it was just a demo and not for sale. So I took "good notes" and decided to try it at home with a few variations..........I love the result!

  6. Wow, Sarah...quite amazing! I love it!

  7. Sarah,

    I "ditto" Laura's comment -- You are just amazing! AND Steve, too!

  8. It's great, Sarah! So inspirational :)

  9. Your lamp looks soooo wonderful! I just had to share that on Sunday I was trying to save time in choir, so I planned to mark all the breaths, etc. of a new song in everyone's music beforehand... And my Steve sat down and helped me so sweetly too. Your post about your dear husband was such a blessing. God is SO good, isn't he?!?!
    P.S. Graeme is so cute I could eat him up. So maybe it's good we haven't met him yet. Hee hee.

  10. Okay, you're going to think I'm absolutely crazy for this, but when I first saw the title "New and improved" and then the picture of the circles, the first thought that popped into my head was "nursing pads?" You can tell what stage of life I'm about to enter.

    And I do love the lamp shade. My comment is not intended to take anything away from your creativity and ability!

  11. nice! looks amazing.

  12. Sarah, so good to hear from you! Do you know what you are having yet? I hope you get to use your girl name....you know I love it too! ;-)

    Karis, hahahaha! your comment made me giggle! It made me laugh even more that you wrote it down--I love it! ;-) yes, I can totally see that connection now! ;-) Hope you are feeling well and that the baby comes sooooooon;-)

  13. I too thought, nursing pads at first, but when I saw the finish product I said outloud with no one to hear me "wow, thats cool". What an awesome idea :)
