What's This Toile About?

It's Toile Good is my tiny space in the blogosphere for sharing craft projects. Crafting has always been a favorite past time of mine – some of my most fond memories of summer camp were spent at the craft table making tie dyed socks and feathered dream catchers.  Now I love to sew (easy projects), paint, hot glue, upcycle anything for my kids, my home or create handmade gifts.    

What you’ll find at It’s Toile Good:
·        Quick and easy craft projects – not only does my attention span fall short, but with 4 kids and a full time job, I have to maximize my crafting time.
·        Links, ideas and suggestions for other amazing crafters – I learn so much from other talented crafters, it only makes sense to share – we’re all friends here!
·        Affordable craft ideas – there’s nothing better than making something with your own hands that’s uniquely personal to you AND looks just as great as something you’d find for much more in a store.
·        A sizeable dose of hilarity and clever sarcasm – crafting is fun and brings out the best in me ;)

It's Toile Good: What’s that name all about?

from Websters...
Toile [twahl] -n. 1. a linen cloth or fabric

(note: one of my favorite patterns)
Example:

from Urban Dictionary...
"It's all good" [a platitude or statement] 1. despite any possible doubt, everything's cool.

Putting that together…It’s Toile Good is pronounced like "It's All Good".  This title embodies the type of crafting that suits me best – a bit refined with a comfortable side. I like to take what I can afford, and make it into something special and if it doesn't turn out perfect - It's Toile Good.  It’s hand made with love - what could be better?
