ReUseable Swifter Pads

I finally finished up my swifter pads! I love my swifter but throwing those pads way was killing me so I whipped these up they Velcro around the swifter and I bought some concentrated floor cleaner put it a squirt bottle with water and I can either squirt my swifter pad or the area on the floor I want to clean. I can even flip the pad over for another quick clean up before tossing it into the dirty laundry.

First Aid Pouches

I tried to sew sew sew on Saturday and I got a lot done but never enough!

I made a few of these first Aid pouches for my last little venue and sold them all! I put band aids in them and I'm try to find a place to buy individual antibacterial ointment things like in the first aid kits to put in there too. I think these little cuties are fantastic and would be great to hang on a beach bag for that moment when you cut your heal on a pop top!

Creation is Done!

Here is the creation! It's totally fabulous when your vision turns out better than you had imagined! So the flowers are made from an anthropology magazine, the stems are sticks from my front yard, pot well you know about that but the "fill" in the pot is white caps! How awesome would his look in a foyer of a house?

What Swirls in my Head

My mother in-law bought us this cute Easter tin filled with popcorn bags & other goodies but now Easter is over & I have no room to store the tin & it's such a great size I hate to toss it in the recycle bin so what am I to do? Well like most of my ideas it came to me while drifting off to sleep! Here is the start of what swirls in my head, doesn't look like much but I hope it all comes together as I have envisioned it will but you too will have to wait to see!

Why is it after a vendor show I just gel the week following? maybe it's all the excitement and craziness of trying to make sure I have enough stuff made and hoping to go home with nothing but a big fat wallet? yep, I think that's what it is~ but while at the show I chit chatted my butt off and have idea's up the wazoo not to mention the folks that gave me the ideas~ gotta love that! So my week has turned into a big number headache! I took a quick book's class (2days) for my day job and I learned a lot but when I when back to the office to apply my new found knowledge seems it doesn't work as smooth as the instructor made it look! of course right that's why they want you to purchase $600 worth of DVDs so you can reference back! well good thing I spent the companies money and did just that! we'll see if he (he being the boss man) will let me keep them you have 30 days to return them!! So number talk not only bores the piss out of me but gives me a headache and makes me sleepy! funny how that seems to be my main job something I hate numbers~ oh one day hopefully soon it will be over or at least be more crafty time than number time~ let's bow our heads and pray to the crafty god to take me over to the other side where the glitter shines so bright you have to wear sunglasses all day long!

This is my latest obsessed piece~ can't seem to make enough! wallets, I said I was going to keep the grizzly one for myself if it didn't sell this weekend and seems it was in the stars to be in MY purse! not sure if folks figured out what it was~ grizzly snuff if so they may not have wanted to carry it!

New Friends

When your at a vendor show it's always fun to meet new like minded people such as yourself and that is just what I did when I was at the Green Street Fair! Next to me was Teresa Rogers, who's hubby's name is Mike too, she makes the Fantastic bags from Coffee Bean Burlap Sacks~ Local coffee shop's supply her with her material and they are to dye for check them out at:

Then across the way from me was Michelle Taber she owns Consciously Hip~ love those women owned and operated business! We gave each other ideas all weekend! She is a Great person and I am glad I got the chance to meet her! One of her motto's "Wearing it on the outside will remind you to Wear it on the inside". You can check her tee-shirts out at:

On Saturday Shell moved next to me (which had been an open space) seems there was dust storm issues where she was located at the fair on Friday~ My dad harassed her and she loved him so I knew she was my kind of gal! I wanted to get some of her salt scrub but time got away from me! She (and her business partner) make salt scrubs, soaps, lotions all kinds of goodies! They can be found at:
