This weekend is the annual SWISS FESTIVAL in my town...I love the Swiss festival! Today we are going to the parade, eating yummy festival food like fried Swiss cheese, apple fritters & gyros and riding rides! Crappy weather be damned....I'm going to Swiss Fest it up!

Inspiration Workshop: DIY

Another week of Inspiration Workshop & I am excited about this week’s prompt: DIY.


I LOVE doing DIY projects, the sad thing is that lately, I have had no time. Which is good and bad. Good because my business is growing and growing, bad because I crave some free time to be creative & dig into my long list of DIY projects I want to do!


Here are a few DIY projects from my
DIY Pinterest Board just waiting for me to try:

We are in the process of finishing a room that will be half playroom half my studio! It is so exciting! And I have so many DIY projects lined up for that room! I can't wait to get started & Share them with you!

Come Follow me on Pinterest...I will be adding more DIY projects to try all the time! And HOPEFULLY I will actually get some completed soon!
Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!

You can find some of my completed DIY projects here.

What's on your DIY LIST?

Freshly Pinned: Fall Fashion & 2 Tutorials!

Welcome to another edition of Freshly Pinned...where I share some of my recent Pins

Since Fall is here, and I LOVE shopping for fall clothes, I created the pin board "style me pretty" to keep track of my fall outfit ideas & today I am going to share some of my favorites AND teach you a new trick I learned!


<------- See that CUTE outfit & that nifty color palette beside it? I always wondered how people made those.  So I did what anyone would do and googled it...and found this post, which led me to THIS sweet site: OMG A Color Palette Generator! {THRILLED over here}

The first tutorial on how to use the Color Palette Generator is SUPER easy to follow...so I won't re do that tutorial.  But I will show you how to get rid of the ugly text it creates! 

Example of what my palette looked like. {I didn't want the font #'s}

The second tutorial is taking a "screen shot" and cropping out the ugly text! So when I had that screen up I hit the Print Screen button on my keyboard to do a "screen shot" & then opened paint & hit paste. It automatically pastes the entire web page and then I just cropped out everything I don't want! EASY!  SO super happy I know how to do screen shots now!! :)

Now, on to the fall fashion:

It's the weekend & you know what that means... it's time to Strut Your Stuff!  

Last week we shared our favorite blog posts from the week & there were so many great ones! Here are some features from last week's party:

Kris from Vie a la Table shared these adorable baby gifts she made for her best friend! SO cute! She even shares where she found the tutorials! Another reason I need to learn how to sew pronto!

The Lovely Poppy shared pictures of her adorable booth from a craft show she participated in!


<------------- This picture inspired me to find an old wire hanging basket to use in my new studio space! 

I will have limited space and thought this was a PERFECT and cute solution for some more storage! I am thinking my twine, some tools and my fabric will look perfect in one of these!

The Hollie Rogue shared her day in a photo journal! Such a great idea! One of these days I have to try that!

Friday Freebie: Your Story.

I absolutely love this FREE printable from Heather of Life Made Lovely.  I love the colors, the tattered look & of course the message of it! 


I am definitely printing and framing one for my studio that is currently in progress! (I CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE IT WITH YOU) Okay, it is not so much a studio as it is a section of the playroom we are doing, but it is more than I have now...which is the corner of my living room and the basement floor! :)

Print yours over at Life Made Lovely & show her some love by leaving her a comment and let her know that I sent you! 


Pssssttt..... I'm guest posting today over at Yellow Heart Art!  Come over and say Hi! There may even be a discount to my shop! ;)
