Abbey over at Aesthetic Outburst is doing a great series of projects called 20 in 20. It all started doing 20 handmade Christmas ornaments in 20 days, then evolved into 20 handmade valentines in 20 days. Now, she’s doing 20 handmade projects in 20 days. The best part of it all? She gives them all away! All you have to do is leave a comment on the project you like, and winners are randomly selected from that posts’ commenters. So fun!

For this larger installment, the project evolved to be more of a blog community project, and Ravenna Girls Vintage is excited to be sponsoring the project. We felt that it was a great way to support handmade, and simple measures of creativity. I love that its a showcase for how much you can accomplish in one little project with simple materials and easy methods. Go check it out.

So far, some of my favorites from all 3 of her series (Christmas, Valentines, and Spring Handmade)

Pendleton Glacier Blanket Pencil Box. Totally up my alley.

Security Envelope and Washi Tape Blank Notebooks

Felt flag Valentine (this was what initially inspired my Pencil flag Valentines)

Dala Horse Valentine

Heart Rocks!

North Pole Map Ornament

Reindeer Ornament

Also, her blog is awesome not just for cute handmade giveaways, but also in general. I love that she’s nicknamed her kids “Kicky” and “EZ E”.

Wow, Wednesday already?

This has been a terrific week so far, as I was on a mini vacation to visit one of my very best friends, her husband, and 21 month old daughter in southern Utah. There was a little bit of sunshine, a lot of toddler energy, and some great catching up.

I wanted to give a quick shout out to an event thats happening this weekend – a Seattle area blogger meet up hosted by Maggie and Michaela. We’re going to swing by with the hopes of meeting some awesome local bloggers and to bounce ideas off one another. If this sounds interesting to you, or as Michaela puts it, “you blog and like pretty things”, send an RSVP to the address listed below and come hang out 🙂

Don’t be intimidated by “Home Decor” bloggers, you know we don’t stay in that genre only. I think if you are inspired by design, this should be an interesting event.

Hopefully this will be the first in a series of great networking events. Plus, we’ll be heading out in lower queen after for some Mardi Gras revelry, so it should be a fun night!
