While I’m Away…

I thought you’d be interested in checking out Whitney English Paper and Little Pretty Studio’s new collection of hoop.de.doo bulletin boards. Aren’t these adorable?


Thanks Whitney!

{update: This blogger wrote about her idea on how to make these in her post back in early March, so if you want to DIY a hoop for yourself — instructions here. Thanks, Jessie!}

    oh wow, I love those! That’s an even easier way to show off really nice fabrics than just stapling them to frames. This way you can actually take out the fabric and use it if inspiration strikes you!

    such a great way to have a bulletin board without having an office feel. Love the patterns.

    so cute! I ran over to etsy (virtually) and bought myself one! Can’t wait to get it.

    and for you to get well soon.
    I read everyday and it’s not the same online without you!

    Have you tried Oscillococcinum – it’s a homeopathic flu remedy – works really well.

    take it easy.
