I so enjoy being transported back in time each year when we visit. It always makes me wish for a simpler life. Thought I would share a couple pics that I took as we walked along.
The large white building is the Eagle Tavern where we enjoyed a delicious 1940's style harvest meal. Don't know why I didn't take pics inside! It is such a delight.
I hope you enjoy these pics!

Right now, I'm finishing up a few orders and then I absolutely must re-arrange my desk top. Wouldn't you know it, but I was forced to go out and buy a new printer. I didn't want to get a new printer. I wasn't 100% happy with the old one, but these are the times of "making do" and "getting along" with what you have.
When I went into the office store (for the 3rd time), this particular salesperson told me my old all-in-one is about 6-7 years old. What??? Where did the time go? I am not one to throw away good for the joy of purchasing all the latest, greatest new goodies. I try to get every bit of mileage I can from what I have. What about you??? Are you a frequent upgrader?
Well, anyway, I bought one printer and brought it home to my studio and it just wasn't doing the job. It was very clunky sounding - even tho it printed better quality than my old printer.
Now.........I am not going to name names (brands, that is) but back it went to the store.
It interests me how you can go to one store three times and get different salespeople who tell you different things. Why didn't I research on the net? - I did - yup - but that just resulted in confusion too. Anyway, I'm making this into a longgggg story, I know. In the end, I bought another printer and .............drumroll...............I love it! I have been upgrading my materials for several months and now have upgraded my printing.
Bottom line (thank goodness, right?) .........better quality for my customers. Yay!
Well............til next time...........

I just couldn't wait to jump in there and start making slippers. Here are a couple I've made so far. These are made from decorator fabric, but just imagine how adorable they would be in flannel, or fleece, or cute cottons. I encourage all you sewers and non-sewers alike to participate. The pattern is soooooooo easy - I am not kidding. Anyone can make them.
Stop over at http://www.pinkslipperproject.org/ and download the pattern and get to work. I know you'll enjoy yourself too. Won't you help us meet this make this challenge a success?

I hope you all had an opportunity to find all the little hidden totes and enjoyed a bit of shopping while you were visiting the shops.
In the meantime, I have been a busy, busy person. (Doesn't feel right to say girl - cause I am soooo far from that...........and don't care for the work "woman" here either.........so person it is).
I have a couple new Signature Bags to show you today that have been just added to our line-up.
Here they are:
I have also been working some other goodies that I cannot wait to share! It's going to be another busy week so I'd better get at it.

Today, I am excited to be sending off a special package to Enchanted Makeovers. If you haven't had an opportunity to visit this site, it is a MUST. Terry Grahl, founder of Enchanted Makeovers, is doing some pretty awesome work revamping and prettifying women's shelters in Michigan. I am pleased to say we share the same metro area of southeast Michigan.
Terry has a special cooking class scheduled at her newest shelter for young women. The aprons you see below are a collection of simple, but sweet aprons that I made to donate to this very special day and cause.
Doesn't it just make you feel good?

Here's the oldest three of us (there were seven!).
These are pics of me as a little tyke.
These are my parents - Dad on their wedding day and Mom as a young teen.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this little journey into my past. There were also pages for each set of my grandparents, and more of Mom and Dad.
Thank you so much, Gayle, for this special gift.
