vintage may: roundup and features

Vintage May: Presented by Craftiness is not Optional and skirt as top

Vintage May 2 has come to an end…so soon!  it was so much fun celebrating vintage style again with you this year – thank you for getting excited with us and supporting this series!

i really couldn’t have done it without my co-host Jess.  it was even MORE fun collaborating this year, because we had a couple extra helpers – Sadie and Em have become cute little pen pal buddies, and we now show them what the other one’s mommy sewed and they get excited along with us!  last year, Jess was deep in the first trimester exhaustion phase with baby Ava and I helped with a lot of the back end work, and this year I was preparing for Quilt Market and was out of town and just had a bunch of stuff going on, so Jess totally stepped up and did a lot of prep work – i’m so grateful to her!

i also want to thank Cherie, who was in town staying with us the weekend between week 1 and week 2, who kept me company during late night sewing (and blogging) sessions and even reminded me i had a post to write a couple times (haha!).  man it’s nice to have a houseguest that really understands!  she even got this great “photo of a photoshoot” – i love it.

and of course, i want to send out a huge thank you to our guest bloggers – you gals are so inspiring.  i loved seeing everyone’s different take on “vintage” and, just like last year, the guest projects seemed to somehow pair up really nicely in color/style/era/feel every day!  if you missed any of the posts, be sure to click through to their blogs to check them out!  beautiful stories, great tutorials, and just plain fun projects!  you guys are awesome.

    Aww, thanks for the shout out, but you really don’t need to be thanking me! Definitely fun to see you “in action” and I’ve been in that situation many a times, so I can relate. Super fun series again – love the adorable vintage inspiration! The creations in the flickr group are amazing too!!
