Tassel Graduation Card

My husband is the youngest of seven children, and every one of those families has two or three kids.  That sounds like the beginning of a story problem, but what it really means is that high school graduations have been coming fast and furious for the last few years.  That’s not even addressing the bunch…

Hot Pad of the Month–May Ladybug

May is always crazy around our house, and this year has been no exception, so I’m sliding in sideways at the last minute with the hot pad for this month.  I think she’s pretty cute, so hopefully  you’ll find she was worth the wait. You’ll need this pattern, which is the same basic outer shape…

Star Wars Pillowcase on Undercover Tourist

This may be a little weird, but sometimes my family travels with our own pillowcases.  It’s not a germaphobe thing and it’s not a comment on the boring bedding provided by our hotel.  Okay, it’s a little bit of that last one, but it’s also just a cheerful thing to add a little personality to…

Craft Show Vendor Apron

First, can I just say how happy I am that craft shows are so popular again?  I remember the school and church bazaars from many years ago, and in fact participated in a few when my kids were very small.  They were always an eclectic mix of products, most from people just looking to make…

Glass fusing projects made at Aquila Glass School

Glass Fusing at Aquila Glass School

I happened to see an offer recently on Living Social, which is still available here, for the Aquila Glass School in Portland.  I’ve worked with stained glass for years, but I’ve always wanted to try glass fusing, which is exactly what they offer.  My husband and I had decided that since we only have one…
