I experimented with handmade sequins this afternoon, not altogether successfully, but in the process I took a trip down Memory Lane and learned a bit about the evolution of sequins. http://www.judy-nolan.com/2018/06/02/an-experiment-with-handmade-sequins/

Has it been a while since you opened that journal you were gifted several years ago? Not sure how to fill the blank pages? Then visit this post to start a list of ways to explore "The joy of journal writing." http://www.judy-nolan.com/2018/02/18/the-joy-of-journal-writing/

One month before the December holidays, most folks I know are getting serious about finishing (or starting!) their handmade gifts, or wrapping up (pardon the pun) their gift purchases. It’s also that time of year when my local scrapbooking store, Memory Bound, holds its Holiday Open House. This past Thursday through Sunday, the Jingle All the Way Holiday Open House saw many visitors, including yours truly. Visit http://www.judy-nolan.com/2017/11/08/idea-starters-for-handmade-holiday-trees/ to see a few ideas for handmade gifts.

Santa's North Pole Village Craft Sale is now behind me, so thanks to everyone who stopped by. The craft fair was a successful one, but I always learn something new. http://www.judy-nolan.com/2017/11/05/six-lessons-learned-at-craft-shows/

As I mentioned yesterday, I will be selling boot cuffs (among other items) at Santa's North Pole Village (Ankeny) on Sat., Nov. 4th, from 9-4, at Northfield Middle School, Space 86 in the East Gym. (Visit www.jnoriginals.etsy.com to purchase online.)

A friend asked if these boot cuffs can be worn with short boots. Although they are intended for taller boots (calf-high boots), you can scrunch the bottom part inside your short boots, and fold over the cuff. I have a very old pair of not-so-lovely boots that look much better with boot cuffs than they do without!

The road less traveled produces unexpected discoveries, as we learned when we visited north central Wisconsin over New Year's weekend. http://www.judy-nolan.com/2017/01/08/the-road-less-traveled/

I’ve concluded that librarians, or at the very least, library clerks, are athletes in disguise. This weekend, as I was organizing my craft, needlework and sewing books, I rediscovered muscles I didn’t know I owned. Visit http://www.judy-nolan.com/…/18/organizing-your-home-library/ to read the rest of my post.
