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 missing out!
They are my favorite. The woman that made them was crocheting
behind her table as I bought them.
Let's support handmade!!
I will be setting up an Esty site soon.
More info. to come!

From Drop Cloth to Painted Rug

I had a wheelchair ramp built going into my house for my 6 yr old who is in a wheelchair. I have loved having it. He is getting so big that it was getting difficult to get him in & out of the house. 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...
