Bamboo iPhone 4 Case by Grove

Bamboo iPhone 4 Case by Grove


Posted on Mar 28, 2011

  When I upgraded to the iPhone 4, I had to get a new case.  I wanted to get something special because, let's face it, my phone is in my hand pretty much all the time.  I wanted something that I enjoyed looking at.  These bamboo cases from Grove were exactly what I was looking for.

I've blogged about Jolie Guillebeau a couple of times now.  It's no secret that I'm a fan.  You can read previous posts here and here.  She is a constant inspiration by painting every single day.  I wish I had an ounce of her motivation!  Her current project is to paint 100 faces.  I sent her pictures of my cats a few weeks ago and I was super excited when I opened my email last week to...

  This is my last post about my cousin's wedding!  I'm still hoping to create a few tutorials based on all the things I learned during this project, but that probably won't happen for a little while.  I figured a picture of the Conga line would be the perfect ending note.     The last thing I made for my cousin's wedding were large pom-pom flowers.  Again, I used Martha Stewart as a...

I've been looking for the perfect pair off glovelettes for ages!  I just couldn't find a pair that called to me until now.  I found this pair designed in Toronto at Kensington Market. this neighborhood filled with local art, amazing restaurants and a laid back attitude reminds me a lot of the Hawthorne neighborhood and is such a fun place to visit.  I wish I could have spent more time there this trip. In the...
