More Did You Know

Boy time just flies by doesn't it. Can't believe it is almost April. I have been busy getting merchandise made for the summer markets and festivals. What have all of you guys been up to lately?

Hubby and I have been busy on making these candles and mats. The tourist love to take these home with them. :)

So I thought it might be time for some more..........did you know......:)

  • Bee stings - meat tenderizer
  • Chigger bite - Preparation H
  • Puffy eyes - Preparation H
  • Paper cut - crazy glue or chap stick (glue is used instead of sutures at most hospitals)
  • Stinky feet - Jello !
  • Athletes feet - cornstarch
  • Fungus on toenails or fingernails - Vicks vapor rub
  • Kool aid to clean dishwasher pipes. Just put in the detergent section and run a cycle, it will also clean a toilet. (Wow, and we drink this stuff)
  • Kool Aid can be used as a dye in paint also Kool Aid in Dannon plain yogurt as a finger paint, your kids will love it and it won't hurt them if they eat it!
  • Peanut butter - will get scratches out of CD's! Wipe off with a coffee filter paper

Always amazes me on the everyday things we have around, how they can have more uses than what they are intended for. :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your week!

Let's Make Carrots!

Ok...Easter is coming soon and I just can't handle it when it is in March! LOL! Just messes up my internal calendar something terrible. :)  I like to visit Pinterest for ideas and recipes and all the good stuff that is on there and I found this video the other day from Missouri Star Quilt Company on how to make carrots for your Easter baskets out of your fabric scraps! Now I know we all have lotsssssssssssssssssssssss of fabric all over the place so this is a way to use up some of them. They looks very easy to make and what a great idea for a project with the kids and grandkids!

Happy Sewing!

Wishing everyone a happy St. Patrick's Day! Make sure you wear your green so you don't get pinched, unless you want to be. Wonder where that pinched stuff came from...hmmm.....may have to Google that. Anyway have a great day!

More Fabrics

I am so happy that I decided to add fabrics to my Etsy Shop. I just love all the new fabrics that are coming out and the wonderful designs. The best thing about it is that I get to buy all this great fabric and pass it on to all of you. I also get to increase my stash by telling for for the shop. Ha!Ha! :)

I have been busy adding more fabrics to the store and I thought you might like to see some of them. 

I absolutely LOVE Susan Winget fabrics with all her gorgeous designs. Her designs have such an old fashion feel to me. I just can't get enough of her fabric. I buy it every time I see a new design. Here are a couple of the new one's I found for you.

summer fabric

I have mostly novelty fabrics in my shop and lots of fat quarters. I love owls and we have a resident Great Grey Owl around our house. I think these owl fabrics are so cute.

Then of course you know I live up north and we call us "northers" so I decided to carry a few designs of wildlife.

So you can see what I have been up too. Still working on getting my product supply ready for the summer markets up here, but I always have time to get new fabrics!! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Hmmmm......What To Do With My Stash

I am always trying to find new projects to make with all my stash. I was always a person that only bought fabric when I needed it for a project. that has changed. I see a fabric I really like and I think...I am sure I can find something to make with this fabric. :)  :)  :)

So now I have a stash. I am always getting neat tidbits and information from and I saw this the other day so I thought I would share it with you. She has some good ideas that you might like to try. I especially like the one that tells me what the dots on the selvage of the fabric are for!! Here is the link or you can click the picture below. :)  

Thanks for stopping by and happy sewing!

Hello March!!

Hello to March!! Got the two hardest months of the year out of the way for me. January and February are hard to get through for us. I guess it is because it is cold and dark up here. When March comes along we begin to feel like we have made it through another winter. :)

Speaking of March.......March is National Craft Month!! Yeah!! All you crafting people have your own month so enjoy!! 

Have fun with your crafts!!

Colleen :)
