Spring is in the air and Jennifer Ramos is a busy lady! Not only does she author a fab blog, but she has a cheery online shop called Made By Girl that many of you already shop at for prints, posters and cards. Today she has added some perky butterfly prints that she made by hand using some of her favorite fabrics from Amy Butler and Tina Givens. These are so crafty and cute!
P.S. – If you are looking for more inspirational work spaces, visit the Made By Girl studio here.

Dainty die cut clocks are a nice way to begin the week don’t you think? These feminine beauties are brand new over at Decoylab this morning and ship worldwide. I wonder if the’ll give me a few more hours in a day, like eight additional hours? Most likely not, but at least one would look pretty in my home.
I ordered the flower clock for my apartment in Hannover because well, it is hard to write about so many pretty things without sometimes pulling out my wallet. How can a blogger resist? And a clock is an absolute necessity. Oh yes, absolutely. And so I justify…

Neighborhood, sharing, networking, hope, recycling, helping, taking a more proactive and less reactive approach, collaborating, showing kindness, cutting back materially but stocking up spiritually, a shift happening in the world… These are some pretty dominant ideas and feelings circulating out there right now. That is why We Are In This Together, a limited edition print by Lorena Siminovich at Petit Collage is such a beautiful thought for 2009 to remember and put into practice as we deal with others.
Beautiful thought, Lorena!
Would you like to comment on something that has shown you lately that we’re all in this together? Think hard, anything that comes to mind? Personal experiences in how we can apply We Are In This Together in our life? I’d love to get your thoughts on this topic. It’s important to think about.

Kristybee is another Boston local for you to love this morning, and what a delicate feminine view of the world she has! I just love looking through her lens, I really like her point of view. Her work has been described as poetic, warm, touching, and sensitive. I found Kristy via Flickr and haven’t been able to take my eyes off of her many gorgeous folders there. I’m so pleased to share her work with you today because I know that you’ll really like it too.

Speaking of books, I added Wallpaper Projects: More than 50 Craft and Design Ideas for Your Home, from Accents to Art to my wish list last night. Doesn’t this look like a great read? It’s by Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith who are co-owners of the Curiosity Shoppe and have a blog called Smarts and Crafts.
It showcases, “Contemporary and vintage patterns, plus instructions for over 50 wallpaper projects ranging from quick scrap crafts (book covers) to more involved design upgrades (headboards) to big impact makeovers (walls, window shades).” You can pre-order a copy here at Chronicle Books. The book will release sometime in April.
