It’s time for this week’s What We Love! Today is American Thanksgiving and we are a couple days away from December…so it’s officially okay to celebrate all things holiday! Pinterest is definitely a main source of inspiration for DIY project ideas, impeccable Christmas decor, and just all things pretty. We’ve also been starting to search for gift ideas for our loved ones – always the best part of the holidays for us (aside from the yummy food!). Inspired by geometric shapes, the holidays, and more…this is what we have loved most this week:

We hope we have inspired you with our What We Love! We’d love to know what you have been loving most this week… Oh, and another thing we’ve been loving? Our Spectrum Giveaway ;)

Hi everyone,





Happy Thursday!! And, Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends! We wish you all a wonderful day filled with lots of love, family time, and delicious food. Because today is our weekly Thankful Thursday, we thought it would be the perfect time to share what we are most thankful for…


We are so thankful for our wonderful and supportive families – thank you for loving us unconditionally and for always being there for us, especially when we need it most. We are so thankful for our incredible friends and significant others – we will forever cherish all the fun, crazy, special, and laughing-till-our-bellies-hurt times; you are our chosen family. We are so thankful for the place in which we proudly call our home, with all the necessities to live comfortably, happily, and safely. We are so thankful that we get to do what we love everyday, in a place where we are encouraged to be creative and inspired (and of course, play with lots of pretty colors and fabric ;)).


We are so thankful for our talented artists – Vita, Allison, Jackie, Heather, Andrea, Jane, and Alisse – so much inspiration, creativity, and awesome-ness. We are so thankful for all the fantastic people that we have gotten to partner with, including the magazine features, blog collaborations, and project pattern designers for our free projects program. And of course, we are so thankful for all of YOU - thank you for letting us be a part of your lives, for sharing your Camelot Fabrics projects & tutorials with us, for your sweet and positive words & comments, and for inspiring us each and every day. We are also thankful for chocolate, tea, online shopping, pretty pens, adorable kitties, post-it notes, and glitter hehe.





There are so many things that we are thankful for, that our post would be a novel (haha). But, we hope that all of our American friends have a relaxing and lovely day – eat lots of yummy turkey and apple pie for us!! Have a great day, everyone! :)




Happy Sewing!
