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…

My March Hot Pad of the Month - a sweet spring bunny!

Quick Fabric Corner Bookmarks

I love giving a little something handmade with something store bought.  It makes it just a little more personal and special.  I don’t know how many coffee cup sleeves I’ve given along with a coffee shop gift card or travel cup.  So many, in fact, I think just about everyone I know has one and…

Hot and Cold Pillowcase

I love Oregon, but I find this time of year a little frustrating.  Don’t get me wrong, there are things I love about fall, like apples, pumpkins and boots.  Oh, the boots.  But the inconsistency in the temperature drives me a little nuts.  One minute I’m freezing, the next I’m roasting.  When you live here,…
