Starting last weekend, I realized that I spend a fair amount of money on fabric on a regular basis. I'm not concerned with this, just something I never really thought about before I went on "the diet". I then made the decision that I am going to try to hand make all of my birthday gifts this year. (Phew - those of you with January birthdays are safe!) This week I worked on several things and am very happy with this decision so far. I am sure somewhere through the year I will mess something up and have to make an emergency trip to the mall!
I also now have accumulated quite a list of favorite sellers on etsy to indulge my fabric obsession - of course I am withholding...for now.
Sewbettie was also featured in the NY Times article about Domino closing from Wednesday, which as BCK also noted, has some cute fabric.
In other areas, it wasn't a very difficult week mostly because I was home crafting for a lot of it! We did have some amazing dinners last weekend at Roots and La Merenda, which is somewhat of an indulgence but at the same time, we found a gift card from our wedding for Roots while cleaning the office that we simply HAD to use!
I will predict that sometime(s) during the next couple weeks I may fall off the wagon. I have been accumulating lots of coupons for various places due to my approaching birthday, and I don't know that I can let a perfectly good coupon go to waste on account of a diet! ha ha ha.
Speaking of which, isn't Anthropologie's birthday present so so cute?!
Here is the outside:
and the inside contains a 15% off coupon and this:
Sure beats the paper cards that the other stores send!
I may just have to take a closer look at some of those items from the February catalog including these:
