it's october 5th! it's october 5th!!!
sorry, but i'm just a little bit excited! because, as i mentioned the other day, my dear pixie-in-chief kirsty vittetoe gave *ME* the very great privilege of assembling this month's pixie dust paperie kit--which is called BLUE MOON--and today is the official release!
here's the official kit photo from the pixie shoppe:
you can see loads more photos today on the pixie blog; or you can read the entire supply list here; or see some DT project teasers on this post! by the way, every day this month you'll see a new and different project on the pixie blog using this kit, made by me or one of my amazing fellow pixies! oh and be on the lookout for kirsty's special ANNIVERSARY ALERTS this month... because we've just celebrated an entire year of pixie goodness and when pixies party, EVERYONE has fun!!! :)
there's A LOT of good stuff in here, if i do say so myself; well heck, it *IS* a pixie kit, afterall! the papers are mostly double-sided and have loads of blue (hence the name!) but also touches of yellow, pink and red; plus lots of luscious neutral shades to tie everything together. for embellishments (the best bit, right?!) there are cardstock tags, chipboard birds ready to be decorated, fabulous super-fun epoxy stickers, a huge rhinestone and pearl flourish, gorgeous creamy linen flowers, fabric thickers, tissue tape... c'mon admit it, you would know this was MY kit just from the list, wouldn't ya??!
in addition to having all of my favorite kinds of stuff, this kit also has a little bit of my ACTUAL vintage stuff!
there's sheet music OF COURSE, because you know how much i love it--this particular book was from 1908, i believe. (the title is "modern music"!!!) you'll also get a beautifully patina-ed dictionary page (1950's, i think) with some cool little line-drawing illustrations; a page from a russian machinist's manual (i tried to specifically select ones with cool charts on 'em); some french vocabulary cards--bien sur; and of course you're going to NEED a few vintage buttons! finally, my absolutely favorite supply of the moment is denim "ribbon"--actually long strips torn from old jeans--that i think looks awesome nearly everywhere.
i hope you'll stop by the pixie blog and read more about it, and stay tuned for another pixie project of mine on saturday! ♥
