{ craft racks for all! }

I'm very excited to announce my new business venture! I will be taking orders for these amazing organizational units called "Craft Racks!"

I'd love it if you took a peek at my Craft Rack website to see firsthand what I'm talking about.

The pictures shown here are of my Craft Rack loaded up with all my ink pads. The one I have holds 70 ink pads... but the new version holds 75!

There are 4 different Craft Racks available. You can see photos, read detailed descriptions and more at my Craft Racks site. Please email me if you're interested in placing an order. We can ship anywhere in Canada and the USA.

{ yes, I still stamp... }


I've noticed a lot of blog posts lately where people are resolving to be more organized, especially in their craft rooms. I thought I would pass along how I keep my ink pads neatly organized in case it might help someone out there. If your ink pads look anything like this picture - you need help! LOL

Last year I teamed up with David from Ontario, Canada. He builds these awesome "Craft Racks" in 4 different styles and I sell them online.

<--- See how neat your ink pads can be with a Craft Rack! I just love mine! You can get one that holds 75 ink pads (practically any brand will fit), there's one for organizing your ribbon, another one for wheels, etc., and another that holds 55 ink pads plus several spools of ribbon.

Craft Racks are only $42 USD or $40 CDN plus shipping. If you'd like more info please check out the Craft Racks blog and then you can email me directly if you'd like to order one.


You Can Make This!

{ stitchery }

Click photos for a close up view!
Good Morning,

So, here's what I'm working on! Several weeks ago Rhonda and I went shopping at a couple of nearby quilt shops and I picked up this Crabapple Hill Winter Wonderland Pattern. I'd seen this quilt displayed in a few different stores before and absolutely loved it so, of course, I couldn't resist buying the pattern! The white fabric (purchased from Fabricland on sale - woohoo) is perfect for a snow man quilt because it has neat swirlies on it that remind me of snow. Now I am on a quest for bright red & white prints to complete the patchwork portion of this quilt. So far I haven't had any luck finding any. All the stores I've asked at say they only bring in red for Christmas! What's up with that? Red is a great color anytime of the year. Does anyone know of a good/reputable online place to order red fabric from? (somewhere with reasonable shipping to Canada).

Close up of my stitching. I like to embroider with stem stitch.

Here's a few patterns & kits that I purchased at the Sewing Expo that was at the Tradex in Abbotsford last weekend. This should keep me busy for awhile! The embroidery floss was purchased at my local yarn shop. The adorable little hangers were from the Crafty Secrets booth. Everything else was from the Quiltopia booth!
