Coffee | Art | New Projects

Starbucks banner

Hello! I’m back with fresh new ideas and wonderful projects coming up! Last week I was able to get caught up on some projects and now this week I’m wanting to start working on an art piece for a local Starbucks. I have several ideas in mind and I can’t wait to see where they take me! I’ll be blogging about this project once it’s completed and when it’s at its new home. Starbucks opened its first store in 1971 across the street from the historic Pike Place Market in Seattle and that is one of my focuses for this project.

In other news, I have been sharing some fun mixed media pieces over at my Layered Facebook Page and a video on a technique for a Mixed Media Altered Journal Page a dear friend asked me to post.

Lately I’ve been inspired with new projects and I look forward to featuring them in the near future. Be on the lookout for that and stay tuned for upcoming book reviews! I hope you all had a lovely past weekend and keep smiling! -Stephanie Hopkins

Better Late Than Never

I meant to post this blog post live earlier but better late than never. Yesterday was full of good coffee, great friends, binge watching my one of my favorite YouTube Channels-while working- and crafty adventures.

A few of my friends wanted to see more patch designs I’m creating with my Grandmother’s quilting scraps for my denim rag quilt. Here are a few samples of what I’m creating:

Also I am making the quilt bigger so tonight I’m cutting my denim squares. There will be a lot of sewing involved but I’m excited about it. This project is being done when I have down time which isn’t often. I was able to cut out three rows worth of squares last-night.

After I completed my tasks of denim cutting,  I started a rag rug with my denim scraps from my denim rag quilt-currently making-and old t-shirts. What I have so far is the start of the center part of the rug. Don’t worry, I will make the circle tighter to close that gap hole in the middle. These rugs are so easy to make. You just braid your fabric together and I’ll show you soon how you can attach it all together. There are two methods to sewing this rug. I’m going to sew by hand. I tied the end with a hair tie to pick up where I left off at a later time. More to come!

I met my local Poshmark Tribe Copper Coin (400 Chambers St, Woodstock, GA 30188, USA) yesterday morning for the Poshmark 8th Birthday celebration and gift exchange. What a blast we had! Our Posh community in Atlanta is the best!
