Happy Friday to you, crafty friends!

hop graphic
Some Odd Girl and Timeless Twine decided to get together for a little playdate, and we are SO pleased you’ve joined us!  We hope you’ll find plenty of inspiration as you make your way around to all of the designers’ personal blogs, and be sure to leave a little love at each stop along the way, because there are THREE gorgeous spools of Timeless Twine and one $25 gift certificate to Some Odd Girl up for grabs!
Our hop, now being lovingly referred to as “The Timelessly Odd Hop”, runs now through Sunday, March 17th at midnight EST, so you have plenty of time to make your way around the circuit.  It’s a big hop, ‘cuz we have TONS of amazing designers who were absolutely excited to combine their love for all things cute, quirky, clever, and crafty, so take your time and ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY!

If you've arrived here from the one and only Leah the Orange, you're on the right track. If not, head back to the Some Odd Girl blog and start from the.. start! :)

Thank you for stopping by to see what Timelessly Odd inspiration I've got for ya..

I decided to use the gorgeous Summery Mae on my project. I made a Google search a couple weeks back and was disappointed to see a serious lack of inspiration when it came to this sweetie, so I'm about to fill in that gap a little! :) This delight was released just over a year ago, back last March. Time for a revival just before the summer strikes, no?


I sat and looked at her a while before I chose how to colour her up. I counted seven stripes on her gorgeous maxi skirt.. seven colours in the rainbow. BAM! Off I ran with that idea. This is the first time in forEVER I have coloured an image with confidence before even looking to see it I had papers that match (luckily I did.. else this coulda ended much, much worse).


I printed Summery Mae out at about 4.7" tall, so it was a larger area for me to colour. I decided I'd then have to make a larger card to accommodate for all the goodness I wanted to fit on there! Including the gorgeous Black and Kraft Twist Twine from Timeless Twine.

If you’ve just dropped by randomly and haven’t been hopping from the beginning, here’s how it’s all going down:
So there’s your hop list!  You don’t have to visit everyone in order, but you do have to visit EVERYONE if you want to win the goodies!  And that’s your cue, friends!  Our winners will be announced on Monday, March 18th.  Happy hopping, and GOOD LUCK!
