Paper Lamp Shade

These lamp shades look wonderful, though I wonder about their ability to be a fire hazard. gives the origami instructions on how to make the folds for the shade. Now to make it fire proof, mmmm?

Another great project involving a camera, art of life and words, and the internet can be viewed at the website called, Take Me With You.

Heather Bailey

Someday I am going to make a quilt. I collect patterns that I want to try. Today I found this site by Heather Bailey that has free down loads for quilt patterns and quilt binding directions. How cool is that!

Diane Fayt

This ceramic artist is my find for today. Diane Fayt has as interesting story about herself as her creations.

This book is also inspiring. Not only the concept behind the book and the art inside the book, but the construction of the book its self is very interesting.

Places to go . . .

Hyper Bunny

These tummies made by Hyper Bunny are too cute! They are knitted and hallow so you can put your treasures in their tummies. I plan to give the one I bought to my cousin filled with things she will like for Christmas (shhhh, don't tell her!). She'll love it! So, of course now I need to get one for myself!!

Libraries are one of my favorite places to go. This web site has some awesome photos of libraries around the world. I think this library in Paris is the one used in the movie Va Savoir. I think I've watched Va Savoir a million times, and I hope to watch it a million more! It is a beautiful movie. Back to libraries -- so much information, so little time.

Triple-milled Soap

I love triple-milled soap! The ad for this Enjoy triple-milled soap says, "You will never go back to drugstore soap." It is true. This brand comes in heliotrope scent - how wonderful is that! This is on my blog list to souvenir.

More retro groove with this picture by Lusi. The smoke from the chimney and the house break through the rain, they are safe from what ever falls. I want to see inside this house.

Laura Osorno

I finished the 'big' update and decided to surf around flickr. I found this wounderful picture by Laura Osorno. It reminds me of the 1970's and sunshine, not sure why it just does.

Jane Jenni

This is my night owl mug from Jane Jenni that I found on one of my surfing internet cruises. I'm up late tonight, or early this morning, working on a update. I'm so excited! It is looking wonderful! Hopefully later today it will be up and running, but now I should put the night owl to bed.

The Paper Place

Wonderful, beautiful paper to spark your creativity on Queen St. West in the big TO. The Paper Place is a favorite place to stop while in Toronto.

pencil case

Every time I rearranging the sewing room, it feels like a new era. This 'era' started off with denim jeans. My muscial inspiration is from a CD of songs that arrived with the zine Broken Records. This case is now the vault for my $$ and credit card. It is too pretty to take the money out of it. Well, maybe some money slipped out ;)

Up coming show!

Here I am with my first cold of the year - in June, ugh. Enough whinning though. Our first show is coming up the end of July, so I have lots of ideas to bring to reality. Now to load up on vitamin C and some sleep.

The beccabags mascot! I found this doll on a clearence (shh, don't tell her!). She has no mouth, so she's quiet - like me.

Wednesday, May 24, 2006


Why does putting things off feel good? It doesn't feel good later when things are not done. I should be cleaning up, sewing, sleeping . . . but here I am surfing the internet, and enjoying it too. There are lots of beautiful and colorful things and little bits of information to spark my creativity here on the WWW. This beautiful blog is my find tonight. I edited this picture yesterday during my procrastination session, it was very 'important' thing to get done - and it got done ;)

fun with photoshop

Another little icon. I should be sewing, but here I am playing the computer instead.

Tuesday, April 04, 2006


This is the picture for the beccabags update, however publishing problems persist. I hopefully will have everything straighten out soon.

bag slide

this is the new slide

new website

The new website is up after weeks of hard work. I hope it is ever changing with new bags, just like cute little dot. The beccabags petite line will stay at cute little dot, while the bigger bags will have a new home at beccabags. Sewing and the web are my to favorite mediums!

the missed train

We just got back from our New York City visit. It was the first time I ventured the subway system without a fellow New Yorker to lead the way. We made it from the tip of Brooklyn to the American Museum of Natural History
in Manhattan, but missed one stop along the way. I missed the connection for the C train, so we decided to walk down 5th Ave and through Central Park to the museum. I look this picture along the way.

A friend emailed me this sweet, precious picture of a sleeping kitty. It looks so comfy. I think I'll take a nap.

I went to my first PhotoShop class today through the community education program in our town. We learned so much in one day, I can't wait for all the other classes! And, I can't wait to start actually editing pictures and making pictures!!

February bags

After taking a little break in Janurary, I feel more productive now. The beccabags petite line for February is up at Cute Little Dot. This episode of the dot story is winding up too. I'm thinking of writing the next dot story about a frog, a fly, and boy named Phineas. (I just found this cool site when I was trying to figure out how to spell Phineas!) Now to work on my next project!!

Sometimes I wish I could bike around town like they are doing in this picture by Vincent Mathy. Last time I visited Montreal, people were riding their bikes everywhere. It is good exercise, you can't buy too many things, cheap transportation, . . . the grass is always greener.

Majeak Ann

I love the pink and the wonderful little world pictured here by Majeak Ann. I want to visit this place.

I saw these today at Cecile Bon Bon. She has the cutest one inch buttons pictured in her blog, now only if I could read the French to see if they are for sale!

Sunday, January 15, 2006


This beautiful flower picture is from Savvy Seams. Other colorful sites to remember are Veer for wallpaper, Eyes on Design for Photo Shop, and Color Mixers for just that right shade.

This is just too cute!! I bought gift tags at Christmas made from Sarah at The Small Object with this little character of hers. They are just so precious, and the packaging is just plain
-- w o w !

ruffle messenger

This ruffled messenger bag is on its way to a very patient customer. I got a little burnt out during/after the holidays, so finally this bag is done!


This is my find on the internet today. It is by Javier Gonzalez Burgos. This looks like a girl on top of the world.

felt dolls

I had a picture of a felt mouse ornament here, but the picture was terrible. I need to learn how to take/edit better pictures. I enrolled in a community class to learn how to use PhotoShop. Hopefully my scheduling will work out, and I'll be able to go to all the classes. My fingers are crossed!
These are some of my favorite sewn felt dolls-- bagel47, Happy Dolls, molly chicken, and jamfancy.


While visiting for Christmas, my dad brought a trunk of things that I had saved. I found some looms that my friend, Amy's dad made for us. We used to send hours making hot pads with these looms. Today I made another one. It was interesting to me that all the things I saved in that trunk are still things that interest and drive me today.

Happy New Year!! This is a bag I made last year, well two years ago now. It is so pretty. I hope the person who has it, loves it! Reminiscing . . .
We went to the library today, and I checked out some magazines from a few years ago. I don't like the way magazines pile up in clutter when I subscribe to them. Though, I am thinking of subscribing to this one, Craft Business Magazine. I saw it on Amy Peter's Studio Blog. If you have read this magazine, what do you think?

Check this out -- a water powered alarm clock! This is on my wish list!
