And we’re off!

Yikes!  Summer has come and gone as well as some FabUlous friends and a whole lotta crafting has been go’in on in here. You all know Miss Charlene was here and just a few weeks after she left, my crafty and VERY camera shy friend, Robin, spent the weekend when we worked on 4 different projects. Sorry, no pics cuz some of them are gifties!  hehe  Of course, there's been some MAJOR jewelry making, vintage hoarding shopping at the Vintage Marketplace, Urban Barn and Matilda's Mouse just to name a few FabUlous spots.

And then it happened  . . Every crafter in a 100+ mile radius of Rancho Cucamonga, CA has died and gone to Crafter Heaven!  Hobby Lobby has come to Southern California and I'm only about 15 mins from their doorstep - OMG FINALLY!! 

And now it's officially the Holiday Season - already???  Well, it must be because I shopped the pre-Black Friday sale at Michael's on Nov 1st and they were playing Christmas music on the PA - OMG??  And now the rest of the retail world has jumped on the pre-Black Friday bandwagon.  So good luck out there in the Holiday trenches, stay strong and remember your local and on-line handmade artists.  They inspire us all by following their dream, doing what they love and sharing their talent.  There are a quite a few upcoming shopping opportunities, so click on the links above, mark your calendars and I'll see ya out there!

Happy Holidays!

They were playing holiday music at some of the stores here back in OCTOBER! Insane!

Happy Sunday Sweet Sandy!
