this and that

I have a few things I want to share with you guys, just bits and pieces. Sorry, no tutorial or project. With all the holiday craziness and work picking up, crafty things are being back burnered right now. I have a couple things up my sleeve though, so keep an eye out. 

First up, who is on Instagram? It is a pretty fab iphone ap that lets you take pictures, pretty them up with filters, and share them with friends. 

oh-so-pretty! It makes even the lamest of us (me) look trendy and cool. My instagram name is allisonmaestri if you would like to add me on there. I will add you back - I just looove looking at people's photos. I am nosey, I will admit it. 

Next up, I discovered one of the funniest blogs. It is called Handmade Ryan Gosling. I can't really explain it - let me just show you. 

Ryan Gosling, crafts, poking a bit of fun at all of the crazy things we crafters do - a winning combination! Check it out {here}, you will not be disappointed! (Photos used with permission from the blog author).

Last thing - I would like to do a little shout out to all of you lovely ladies who have made some of my projects.  I have gotten several emails and comments that you all are making things inspired by some of my tutorials. If you are, I would love to see and possibly feature you in an upcoming post. So, if you have pictures, you can leave a link in the comments or send me an email at littleloveliesbyallison (at) gmail (dot) com. Sharing is caring!

Random enough for you? I hope so. Have a great week everyone. Mine will be full of work, work, work, some Christmas shopping and wrapping, finishing some work-in-progress projects, catching up on housework, and maybe about three hours of sleep.



  1. Ha... we must be on the same brain-wave. I've been obsessed with instagram and the ryan gosling blog all weekend!

  2. I love imstagram, too! (Clearly, since we already follow each other. I'm nosy, too!)

    Thanks for the tip on the Ryan Gosling site. I'm gonna go check it out now!

  3. I'm definitely going to have to check out Instagram. I'm so behind!

    Ryan Gosling is too gorgeous & the "Hey Girl" phrases are hilarious!


I appreciate each and every lovely comment you leave!
