My favorite new blog: Markers and Thread

Peace and Blessings folks!

I am very happy to share with you a new love of my life. 

Her name is Markers and Thread! 

It's a wonderful relationship so I am shouting it out to all of you. Go check out and love this site which has so many inspiring creative projects. 

The best thing I like about it, is that all the projects are extremely practical, eco-friendly, and interactive. You can really tell that the author does her research and puts her heart into what she does, which makes everything have a touch of earthy chicness. 
 
One of my favorite posts ( I go raving about it to random ppl yeah) has to do with preserving herbs. I don't know about you but whenever I buy a bunch of cilantro, parsley, or mint I sadly end up wasting so much if I don't use it immediately. 

In this post she teaches how to preserve them as cubes in the freezer for later use. 

WHY am I nearly 27 and haven't thought of that??

I also like her post on stovetop potpurri. There are many options for natural products with nice fragrances..it really makes me rethink using all the chemically febreeze stuff. 

I have to admit I have a special love for her, because I met the author face to face and she is an amazing and accomplished mother. Also, she seemingly uses principles of upcycling and minimalism in her projects which I believe in strongly (a lot of my pieces are upcycled for my business). a

This is site that presents you with projects that will be hard to ignore!
