There is a beautiful shop, called RUSTY CREEK, in a giant barn just down the road from my house. (I love the convenience of this, BTW) Susan, the shop's owner, recently made a section of the store into a crafting area. She appropriately named it, "The Hens' Nest". Love it! Anyway, one day I was browsing and chatting, and she asked if I would teach a crafting class of some kind. I came up with this idea, and I just love it! Every year I read lots of magazines about Christmas ideas...crafts,recipes, cookies, and everything else you can dream up. My idea was that I would love to cut out the things that I like, and have them all in one spot. That way I am not wondering where that great sugar cookie recipe I saw was, or how to make the cranberry punch I made the year before. I also thought it would be a great place to make all of my "to-do" lists and write in new addresses I need to add to my Christmas card list. I decided this would just be the funnest thing to make and keep with me at all times so I can jot down everything related to the best holiday of the year!! So, I went a little nuts with scrapbook paper, vintage images of old christmas cards, old sewing trims, buttons,etc...and here are the results!! The class will be held on Saturday, November 7th from 10:30 am-1:30 pm in Fallbrook, CA. Please email me for more info if you are interested. Or, try your hand at making one at home...fun and easy. The best part of making this the last couple days was listening to Christmas music to keep my inspiration up!
Hello everyone! I am a homeschooling mommy of four who loves to dabble with different types of crafts, incorpoating vintage items I find along the way. I have a vintage red and white 1940's kitchen and love looking for things to add to it. I collect old red and white canisters, red and white crocheted pot holders, red and white enamelware, old wood or metal childrens play houses, childrens toy kitchen pieces, several milk glass dishes and mug patterns, etc. I'm just having fun mixing it all up in my kitchen! I am a Christian and I love Jesus!
