Support Handmade

I was able to participate in 7 different boutiques this season. One thing I noticed was the lack of handmade items. So many booths had retail jewelry, purses, clothes etc... Which is fine but, since I make all of my own things I can appreciate the work that goes into creating all of these fabulous products. I found this great purse for my daughter for Christmas at one of the boutiques. She loved it! It is well made and was only $36.00!! With all the classes and orders I have to make I don't have the time to stop and make something like this. It was worth it to me to buy it. Here is a cute little wallet that she picked out to go with the purse. It was cute and only $6.00! I absolutely love these!! My aunt used to send me her homemade washcloths every year for Christmas. She has gotten older and hasn't been making them lately. I picked these up at a boutique as well. The round scrubber is a washcloth on one side and scrubber on the other. If you have not tried these you are miss

This is so much easier!   Here's the problem:  It's ugly and my welcome mat/entry rug doesn't fit! No bueno!!   I looked for a rug that would fit but didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. So...I decided to make my own.   I got a canvas drop cloth from Lowe's for just under $10.00.    I gave it a good ironing to get the creases out.   I had some white house paint from another project and painted the drop cloth. (Tip: Even though this is a drop cloth the paint soaked through to the backside. I put a plastic drop cloth under it to protect my table.)   Then I stenciled it.  I was going to do a different pattern and transfer it on to the drop cloth but I already had the stencil and let's face it...
