weekly wrap up + stitched constellation calendar

I’ve been constellation-crazed for a while now. I’m not sure why, but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with being a Gemini (jk). I keep collecting little constellation designs and this Stitch the Stars Calendar Kit from Heather Lins is a new favorite. Heather created a screenprinted 2013 calendar with corresponding constellations for each month. You connect the dots with embroidery thread to finish off each month and you came frame them when you’re done! Each kit comes with 12 calendar cards printed in glow-in-the-dark ink, one embroidery needle, glow-in-the-dark embroidery floss and is packaged in a muslin bag. This would be such a fun gift for the zodiac fan in your life- or just someone who wants a creative calendar for the coming year. Click here for more info and to order ($24 each).

My family is in town today so I’m heading out early to meet them- I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you on Monday :) xo, grace

Below is a summary of this week’s highlights:


  1. These are so cool!!! Awesome idea.

  2. This is adorable!!! I love stars…in fact, I have several personal paintings I’ve done as part of a “Cosmos Series”… This would be GREAT to have to compliment them.

    feels like an advent calendar for grown ups! I’ve been looking for one or two 2013 calendars. It would be nice to have a “best of”.
