And finally I present to you my new carding station. The empty drafting table from the previous post has finally been inhabited with fiber, tools, buttons, jars, ribbon, a scale, and my drum carder. The world is happy again and you all can go on about your business. I haven’t used it for carding yet, […]

Holiday Ideas

I’ve got so many different Holiday ideas for my fiber shop swimming around in my head and no time to do them and it’s killing me! Okay, I’m making that up, I have plenty of time to do them, just not before my next show which is… uhh… two days from now! I had HUGE […]

I used to be the kind of person who needed the approval of others to validate what I do. If I made food, I didn’t really know if it was good unless someone told me it was. If I hung up some pictures in a way I liked, it didn’t look good until someone told […]

Knock Knock

Packy McPackertons

I packed up much of my crafty area stuff tonight. I almost packed my beads and yarn – but I couldn’t. Those will stay out until just before we start moving (which is only in a week). One advantage to moving your crafting area is you really get rid of a bunch of junk. I […]

To Do List

parsley found in my garden last week – it blooms! I sat down tonight to package up some bracelets to ship out and started to work on some earrings. That’s when it happened, I sat there for about 3 minutes just starting at my crafting table. I didn’t want to make anything tonight – not […]

Slightly off topic

I’m warning you, BeadedBombshell introduced me to embedding YouTube into blogs today… Okay, I think I mentioned that this blog was dedicated to crafting and baking… or maybe just crafting (I can’t remember) BUT I need to take a post to leave the norm and discuss something just as dear to my heart… if not […]
