Bowl Buddies!

I hang out at the Alamo Craft Company in San Antonio; I have a booth and I also teach classes.  I started hanging out there when someone invited me to one of the monthly Crafter’s Corner classes, which are a lot of fun and are always followed by a potluck.  It doesn’t get much better than that: crafting AND food! At one of the classes, I learned how to make… Read More »

Pumpkin Patch

Amazing Gift

Last week, I went to the annual Stampin’ Up! convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, and met up with my dear friend, Lauri who presented me with this incredible thread catcher that she made for me.  It has a removal pin cushion weighted down by a ceramic tile, and the “bucket” has a handy loop for my scissors.  It matches some other sewing accessories that I have that I will… Read More »

Bowl Buddies – A Fun Sewing Project!

Last week, I attended the monthly Craft Corner class at Alamo Crafts, a local craft-mall store in San Antonio.  I look forward to Craft Corner because it gives me the opportunity to hang out with crafty people and I get to do a project that someone else has planned and prepped.  After we do a simple but fun project, we enjoy a pot-luck meal together.  A totally awesome was to… Read More »
