:: Weekend Sewing Book Tour
Heather Ross' much anticipated book Weekend Sewing is now available in bookstores and online! She'll be kicking off her blog tour next week and I'm so excited to announce that Heart Handmade is part of the tour. Heather will be stopping in next Wednesday to say hello and to give away a copy of her book to one lucky reader! For a sneak peek of Weekend Sewing, visit Heather's blog Weekend.

:: The Bright Side Project
Add a little sunshine to your life by checking out The Bright Side Project II. Over 28 days a new accessory designer will be featured every day and each designer will pose a question to the community. Site visitors are invited to submit their answers and will be entered to win a piece of work from each designer. Check out the site for more information.

:: The Be Present Retreats
Born from the belief that creating is a meditation of the soul, each retreat is an invitation to pause in your life and gather in a supportive environment filled with like-minded individuals in a creative, playful, and meditative atmosphere. The June retreat is called Self-Portrait Excavation and is centered around the journey that is the self-portrait. Gathering at The Lodge at Gearhart's Little Beach on the Oregon coast (about 10 minutes from Cannon Beach), we will immerse ourselves in paint and mixed media, words, photography, and the beauty of our surroundings. Please visit
for more information.

:: Gajillionaire Show
Stop by and say hello to Brandon (this week's One to Bookmark) - he'll be showing his work at the Wellspace Gallery in Oakland (show opens today). Go to for more information.
