Feature You Friday - I'm Feelin' Crafty!

Good morning StitchStealers!

I have a sneaking suspicion that you are all going to LOVE today's feature.  When we took one look at the blog, I'm Feeling Crafty, we knew that we had to feature it, and its creator Louise. I'll let her introduce herself and her blog to you:
I'm a full time working mom.  I'm an architect for my day job, then I come home and play with my almost 3 year old son.  Once he goes to bed I become a jack of all things crafty. Since I'm an architect, I do have formal training in that aspect of my life. After 5 fun years in architecture school, I graduated form Tulane University and have traveled and moved around a bit until settling here in the mostly dreary Pacific Northwest in Seattle. For all my other interests: sewing, quilting, photography, parties, crafting and my art, which is primarily 3d collage art (and which I haven't done in ages!), I don't have a bit of formal training!  My favorites at the moment (because they do change every now and then), are sewing and quilting! I love love love sewing things and figuring out how to put them together. To me, it's almost like figuring out building drawings. Except for the fact that the drawings for buildings are pretty straightforward, and with sewing you have to think about putting the pieces together backwards to get the finished results!

I started my blog, I'm Feeling Crafty, as a way to share what I make with my best crafty friend back home and with my mother, both of whom live about 3000 miles away.  Later, I switched gears and became a real "blogger" hoping that there would be other people out there that would enjoy the things I make and would give me feedback and inspiration. Once I went "public' with my blog and started getting feedback, I got addicted!  I love all the comments I get, and blogging has become a way of inspiring me to keep making things and make them better and better - to "step up my game"!
I asked Louise to share her fave projects from the blog so we could highlight some of the fabulousness you'll find at I'm Feelin' Crafty - and here they are...

Here is a Super Hero Ensemble: (Moms of boys, you will love her blog because she makes a lot of boy-centric clothes and costumes due to her little boy)

Owl favors for the party planner in you:

And this is Louise's current personal favorite (and I think we can all see why!) - adorably sweet pillowcase dresses that she made for a friend's granddaughters (I think Louise and I need to become friends!):

So, as you can see, there is a little something for everyone and something to make for everyone! Go visit Louise at I'm Feelin' Crafty and give her some love. As an added bonus, if you head over today you can find out how to take part in her blog giveaway - of a StitchSteals gift certificate! Even without the chance to win, you'll love looking around - guaranteed!

I hope you all have a great weekend and find the time to get a little crafty yourselves!
