My favorite Pinterest finds of the week (follow me here: http://www.pinterest.com/trappedintime/).
I’ve cited photographer/etc where possible–that’s the down-side to Pinterest. A lot of authership/ownership is lost in re-pins.

Ah, Friday again! Looking forward to a weekend filled with gardening, sewing & a crawfish boil! Here’s to hoping the rain holds off for the outdoor activities, and that you have a fabulous weekend yourself!
My favorite finds of the week on Pinterest (follow me: http://www.pinterest.com/trappedintime/):
(Madonnas by Katarzyna Widmanska)
(Vintage Edwardian era cape)
(With or Without You – Paul Lovering)
Obviously my feelings of being overwhelmed have continued on, undisturbed, as evidenced by my almost-complete disappearance here. Maybe next week will be better.
Until then, I give you my favorite Pinterest-finds this week. Have a lovely weekend!
It’s Mardi Gras day! And it’s raining and freezing cold out! And I’m under the weather!
All that adds up to me, a heating pad, a blanket, some coffee and photo editing/listing of newbies for the shop.
Just listed seven (SEVEN!!!) new capelets over in the etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TrappedInTimeDesigns
Here’s to hoping it’s warmer in YOUR neck of the woods!
I’m so excited to share that one of my designs is featured in a full page photo editorial in New Orleans Weddings Magazine!
Check out the image–that’s mine with the red bodice!!
Hopefully just the beginning of fabulous things.

So, I disappeared for a few days. It wasn’t intentional. It was a spur-of-the-moment-hiatus. From pretty much everything. G was out of town all week, leaving me and the kitties to fend for ourselves. The weather was all over the place. The orders were a little sparse. The audio-book wasn’t delivering. The stack of items to sew up wasn’t singing to me. I was waiting on mountains of fabric to arrive.
It all added up to me, a cross-stitch project that I’ve been working on for 3 years, lots of hot coffee and tea, a blanket and Netflix.
Also: re-arranging the living room.
But, I’m back, ready to go, if not raring. Maybe it’s the time of year? The not-quite-spring but not-quite-winter weather?
So, I’ll leave you with some pretty for your Monday morning. My morning started with my asking the universe why I couldn’t just have one more Sunday before starting the week. Ah, universe, how you vex me.
These are my favorite Pinterest images from last week. Come join me at: http://www.pinterest.com/trappedintime/
I’m rolling out the Trapped In Time Tuesday feature again, folks. Since it’s officially carnival time in these parts, I figured what better way to start than with a Mardi Gras accessory.
This is a tulle boa, made from strips of tulle that I cut and sewed individually to a sturdy center strip.
It has layers and layers of tulle sewn on both sides and is pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself.
You can find it in the etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/127893659/boa-mardi-gras-boa-mardi-gras?ref=shop_home_active_7
And in the artfire shop here: http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/TrappedInTimeDesigns/8421085/boa_mardi_gras_boa_mardi_gras_costume_tulle_boa_scarf/handmade/clothing/costumes/fantasy
New in the shop over the weekend:
The bustles are all being offered on a made-to-order basis, too.
I’m trying to beef up the shop in between orders. I have a whole stack of things that are ready to be sewn up, and I try to add to it every weekend, as well as subtract from it (ie: sew things up) every week. Problems only arise when I’ve fallen out of love with whatever idea I had had when I cut whatever-it-is out. Then….well, then it goes to the bottom of the stack.
So, like most of the world, I’m on pinterest (you can find me here: http://www.pinterest.com/trappedintime/).
While I sat here today wondering what I’d post on this Friday– this Friday that has me finishing up some orders, shipping some others, looking forward to this evening (movie night with G–and POPCORN!), doing the generally boring, everyday things–I figured I’d share some of my favorite pinterest image finds from the week.
It’s my way of doing a blog post without really doing a blog post. I’m sneaky like that.
