The Rise of Burlap
I'm noticing burlap everywhere. Burlap artwork, burlap totes, burlap flowers. I *heart* burlap! This burlap craze isn't new though. Want proof? Go to the lovely Maya's blog, maya*made, and read this post. Maya had burlap items in her etsy shop back in October 2008. I have an inkling, though, that she had been playing with burlap for some time before that. Why do I love burlap? It's natural, so versatile, and just fits in with my love for reusing "stuff". Just by reading maya*made my love for burlap has grown. While I haven't had the chance to get my hands on a supply of burlap yet to try out some of her tutorials, look out when I do! Here are some of my favorite burlap treasures you can find at Maya's blog.
I can't wait to make one of these and pin all my ideas and inspirations to it.
I know the love for all things burlap is going to grow. Just remember that Maya was doing it long before it became the "in" thing. She is a very talented and inspiring lady and if you're not reading her blog, you really should add it to your faves.
P.S. This post was completely unsolicited and I received nothing in return for it except a nice email when I asked Maya if I could use some of her pictures. Thanks Maya!
