catnap scrap packs....fabric bundles...


...okay, say that five times real fast....catnap scrap packs! lol!! can't do it can you? lol!! okay, so i feel like i have wasted most of the day, well, pretty much all of it. BUT, it had to be done - my oversized antique cotton basket - you know, the ones they used to pick cotton a hundred years ago, well... it has been over flowing for a while. but, what should i expect... i have made hundreds of pillows and have never destashed it. so here we go.... i have so many of these packets and will continue to list them - am trying to keep a theme with each, but, it is not really happening. each pack has lots of wonderful vintage fabrics - small pieces, mind you! sampler packs that are ideal for small projects, patchwork, etc. here are a few...


they don't really look that great! but...


each one has lots of yummy fabric...



for patchworking, scrapbooking...



making pillows, sachets...



and more....



it will be another 5 years before i do this again,believe me! :-)!!


so grab a catnap scrap pack and let me see what you do with it!!!

becca, the creek and the turtle

it's so hot! and this sweet picture of becca cools me off just to look at it! i can imagine dipping my feet in the creek and cooling off a bit!

the turtle says to becca..."kiss me becca, kiss me!"
becca says to the turtle..."i don't think so! i am already a princess and you are no frog"

stay cool, my friends!

etsyversary sale!


four years on etsy - wow - how time really does fly! when the girls were little, i would drag them and my wares to craft shows all over north georgia. loading the car, grabbing poptarts, and then sweating all day long in the heat, but oh what fun! while i would man my booth, the girls would wander around, coming back every now and then for a dollar or two for something they found - usually a toy. and they always filled their bellies with funnel cakes!

i got away from it for about 10 years, life just got a lot busier as they got older. but after i finished grad school, i was itchin' to get at it again. bought my first piece of barkcloth about 8 years ago and started making barkcloth and chenille pillows. well....they were all dressed up with no where to go until one day in hobby lobby, the clerk told me about etsy and the rest is history.

i have met so many wonderful people, made new friends and have the best customers a girl could ask for. to celebrate my 4th etsyversary, everything in the shop is marked down 10% and if you use the coupon code blog10, you get another 10% off. this is a small way i can show my appreciation to everyone! sale is running until the end of july - thanks again y'all for a wonderful 4 years! xx c
