let's talk trends...


Check out this fun little article I'm in that was just published on the inside source. Marni was kind enough to ask me to particpate in the column, so I gave my two cents about my love for granny chic. Love the other bloggers in the article, Jessica and Eva.

What's your favorite crafting trend right now?

I like the trend of re-doing or "upcycling" clothing by adding ruffles and embellishment - I can buy a cheap shirt at a yard sale or thrift store and add a quick ruffle and make it look like an $$$ Anthropologie shirt for a fraction of the price!

Speaking of up-cycling... I love finding almost-trashed-treasures and turning them into wall-dolls. My newest mission is actually to buy no more art doo-dads and use, instead, found objects.

My latest favourite trend is the old furniture that gets repurposed. But I love seeing everyones crafts...I just dont have time lately!

Great post, Kari.I am loving upcycling jewelry with my girl.We seem to be doing little else. I just got a sewing machine and, when I have the time, I would love to fool around with clothing. Kat and I are also going a little crazy with flowers of various kinds, made with vintage material.

I can't seem to buy enough doilies and trim. I haven't done anything with them but make one banner. I just love them. I can't imagine ever making one!

i have never heard the term "Granny Chic"...think I live under a rock!

Do I have to pick just one? Re-purposing clothing. I took some old t-shirts & used the fabric to make shoe bags for travel, An old mat from a diaper bag into a wet-swimsuit bag (washable too!).
