I’m a Winner

I recently won a fabulous giveaway over at Daisy Janie’s blog. She had a week of giveaways last week and I was so excited when I got her email that I had won a stack of fabric! Yippee! What a happy surprise! This is three inches of 5″ x 5.5″ of fabric, totalling 3 yards. […]

Gearing Up: Lavendar Sachets

I spent a large chunk of last week getting ready for the two Craft Shows I have coming up. I made a few dozen of these beautiful lavendar sachets, and I have to say, they have made my whole studio smell amazing. I just wish you could smell them through the screen! You can get […]

Big Weekend for Handmade Goods!

This weekend there are two great opportunities to get your holiday shopping done while supporting your local community! Check out the Book Arts Festival at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.

Holiday Fabric Wine Bags

Finally, Crafty Planet

I went to Crafty Planet last week for the first time. The first TIME! I can hardly believe I’ve been sewing for almost a year and knitting for a few more, and I’ve never been to the delightful Northeast Minneapolis shop! Jen gave me a gift certification for my birthday (in July) and we finally […]
