We're Moving

Hi, everyone!  I have been away from the blog for a little while, but now I can finally tell you why!  I'm so excited that Dreaming in Craft has a brand new home and it's so cute!  I want to thank Josh and RenĂ©e for all of their hard work.  They made this site to perfect for Dreaming in Craft.  Now you can find everything in one place!  I'm so excited! 

I will no longer be posting blogs here.  All of these posts have been moved over to so come visit me over there!  I will be blogging about things I write about here like Dreaming in Craft news, arts and crafts, music, animation and anything else that inspires me.  I have a lot of fun new things planned for the new site so I hope you will join me.

p.s.  I'm posting a giveaway on the blog tomorrow so make sure you stop by!  :-)

Dreaming in Craft News

Hi!  Sorry for being away for so long.  This was a busy week for me.  I had to finish up my plushies for Cupid's Corner so I was busy!  I managed to take some time yesterday to list some new embroidery hoops at Dreaming in Craft and I wanted to share them with you.

p.s.  The blog might be a little quiet for a couple more weeks.  I have lots of big changes planned so I need a little time to get everything ready.  Thanks for being patient.

I Heart Stop Motion - Matt The Electrician

Matt The Electrician is a musician in Austin.  Wondering how he got the name Matt The Electrician?  You can read his story here.  I really like his music.  I even backed his Kickstarter campaign to fund his latest record. 

During that campaign Matt debuted a video for his song All I Know and I was so happy to see that it was a really cute crafty stop motion!  Even better news?  I found out his wife is one of the founders of Future Craft Collective and she helped him make this video!  Future Craft Collective is an organization that aims to build family connections through crafting and creativity. 

Okay, back to the stop motion.  :-)

What do you think?   Want to hear some more?

Dancing Penguins

I  have spent the last few days making a bunch of these little cuties for a fun event I'm participating in this month.  I'll have more info about that very soon.

While I was sewing them I was reminded of one of my favorite scenes from Mary Poppins.

Wouldn't it be fun if the penguin plushies could dance like that, too? :-)
