I also spend countless hours with my girls creating, making and sharing. I want them to learn as I have the gift of giving a handmade gift. I also want to teach them the value of receiving something made with love. It's a full circle sort of thing.
Nothing is more exciting to me than visiting a wool shop, or checking out an antique store, and without a word of a lie the annual Christmas craft fair is in my planner, on my Crackberry and written in red on my kitchen calendar to make certain I don't miss it. I'm all sorts of
Anyways, I have this cousin Stephanie, who's crafty herself, Martha's got nothing on her. I can remember being a kid, and watching her create and craft beautiful Christmas wreaths and the most adorable dolls from mops (clean not dirty ones), I still have my mop doll. She, like many of us crafters has creative mood swings and changes from craft to craft, project to project. Adjusting her style to suite her lifestyle, which is what she's once again done.
She's gone into the salvage business, searching the earth and every garage sale on the continent for one man's trash to turn into another man's treasure. She's repurposes, creates, cleans and rebuilds the vintage into the beautiful and it's amazing! I have yet to visit her shop, but she's created a blog and seeing all her treasures is a pretty sweet deal!
That's what you could win! I love it! (ps, I totally snagged this shot from her blog)
ps, I'll have her link on the side bar should you ever want to go take a gander at her site again.
