Grosgrain puts the fab in fabulous


If you haven't checked out this website, YOU MUST GO THERE NOW. This woman makes gorgeous clothes and gives them away, as in for free. It is unbelieveable. And if there is any doubt of her awesomeness check at the Marie Therese dress she just gave away. Oh how I am kicking myself for missing the deadline on that one!

First posting

This is a month of firsts! Sew Mama Sew is my number one source for sewing inspiration and sewing products, they have the most gorgeous fabrics and patterns ( I have a few things in my wish list right now!). They requested links to projects, I sent mine in and today my beach bag made it to their pages! I couldn't be more thrilled. The online crafting/blogging community is so fabulous, I am happy to be a part of it.

First Festival

Well, my first festival was moderately successful, I think. I sold about half my stuff and it seemed like people were quite interested in my crayon roll-ups. I can use the leftovers for Christmas presents. Thank you to my wonderful friends, the Snyders, for coming to see me, buying a couple totes and taking some pictures.

I wish I had the time to do another one before Christmas, but I am too busy making Christmas gifts for my family, which I enjoy more anyway. In fact, I am slightly obsessed with coming up for something for my very hard to buy/make for hubby. I think I have an idea, but the execution may be the challenge. The ideas seem to be easy to come by, it is the skill and time to execute where I tend to struggle.

I did, however, just buy this adorable fabric (not for hubby) that is discontinued, but I had to have it anyway, don't be surprised to see this in some Christmas gifts:
