Top 5 Posts for It's Toile Good

I'm headed to SNAP! Conference later this week and to say I'm excited is putting it mildly.  I haven't been blogging or crafting much since returning to work a few years ago, but knowing I'm going to rub elbows with some of the best crafty bloggers out there inspired me to dust off this ole' blog a bit.

I was really surprised when I checked the stats from the last months and years. For being relatively untouched for so long, it surprised me to see there were still visitors coming to read about certain projects!  To recap just the highlights, I give you the top 5 most viewed It's Toile Good craft projects...


Used some old book page and one of the pie tins from my grandma's old kitchen to create a unique wreath for my walls.  We've since remodeled the kitchen and cabinets cover that wall, but I still love the look of that wreath!

Old shirt cuff with sewn sides, buttoned and tied with a bow - the perfect gift card holder!  Unique and handmade.

First ever blog swap with the talented Angie from The Country Chic Cottage.  Personal goal to meet and befriend this talented craft blogger this week!!

Cheap mittens + old jewels and hot glue = cute winter accessory

Simple flower vase turned hanging lantern.  This craft has become a favorite for anyone trying to find affordable ways to improve their backyard, porch, wedding reception or home decor.
This project was most recently featured on Zulily's blog - woohoo!

It truly amazes me that something I started as a hobby, on a whim, has been read and shared and Pinned by so many.  Stay tuned - there might be some more to come for this blog.  I can only imagine the motivation I'll have after the SNAP! Conference!!

Thanks for reading and supporting It's Toile Good!!

Hey there! What Choo Doin'?

Hi guys!
I've missed ya!  I hoped I would have crafty time when I went back to work and while I HAVE been working up some crafty goodness, I haven't had time to share it with you all.  LAME - I know.

I HAVE been blogging.  Just not here.  Let me introduce to you to the company that's getting my bloggy love right now...

This is who I worked for BEFORE I stayed home with my kiddos who drove me to crafting to stay sane!  I'm back with the parent company now and while I work for a different segment of the company, I still have had opportunity to blog for them a bit!  (don't hate! I know it's an awesome gig!)

Well, today I couldn't help myself and SHARE the awesome blog hop and prize give away they are having today!  Basically, you start off with Libby at the PSA Essentials know the guys who make these amazing stamps...

 Move on and dig into some eye candy on Monica Lee's beautiful blog...
