I don’t know if I’m just now noticing them, or if they’re becoming trendy … but I’m starting to see dream catchers everywhere! Obviously they have a history that goes way back in Native American traditions and I love that they’re still around.
Whether or not you think they catch bad dreams and allow only good dreams to slip down across the feathers, they are still a neat handmade decoration. I know the meaning behind them is probably much more deeper than just that, but I am not too familiar with it. I love the idea of them though – so whimsical & charming!
Here’s a few favorites I’ve seen around lately, including illustrations of them and DIY. I’m convinced I need to make one now. But- we have a window above our bed. Does it work if we still put it next to our bed? :o)
What special details would you put on your dreamcatcher? I love the DIY ones made with doilies.

I was searching Etsy for hand-carved stamps, as Ryan and I are looking into packaging ideas for Two Are Better, and I remembered how much I love stamps! They’re not the most practical thing, but they are oh so cute.
I wish I could have a stamp collection – but what would I stamp? The walls? The love letters I don’t write? Ryan’s arm? Oooh – maybe I should get a teaching job so I have an excuse to use stamps on students’ papers. ;o)
Anyway, I got a bit distracted and just started searching Etsy for any handmade stamps that I liked. I started a Stamp Pinboard on Pinterest and I’m trying to justify a purchase of stamps.
We are planning on buying a few to stamp on packaging for Two Are Better – like maybe a camera one or custom logo. But how else could I use stamps? Any ideas? :)
Here’s just a few of my favorites below. The rest are on my Pinterest board so be sure to follow me!
