I made these in honor of my dad!! He loved watches! 
Project Time: 30 Minutes. Father's Day is a wonderful time to celebrate not only dads, but grandpas, uncles, cousins and brothers. And even those dads who have passed on. The day holds a special meaning for me for that reason – I love thinking back on all the happy memories my dad gifted to me.

Appliqué Tote
What do you do when you are an appliqué hoarder? You shut it down, that's what you do! But, what happens when you love all of those appliqués?  That was my dilemma with my fabric stash and appliqués. I decided instead of tossing them I would glue them all o...

I decided to support a local business rather than order my silver supplies online. I went in excited to get supplies and learn a new craft - but wow - the staff is so rude and condescending. The clerk literally turned her head and laughed when I asked a question about polishing silver. I quickly paid and left. I won't return. So sad that a local business can't treat their customers with respect, much less show appreciation for their business.
