Judy Bag!

I just finished a bag for a friend, Judy. I wanted to share it real quick because I think that the cupcakes are super cute!
Don't you agree? The colors are super fun too! 
This is quite a large tote...about 15 inches wide and 16 inches tall. It is meant to be used for scrapbooking, but you know us gals, we'll use it for everything! 
Fun contrasting fabric on the inside. 
The feet on the bottom will help protect the bottom of the bag.
  I hope you love your new bag Judy!

New Scripture Totes

I have had some requests for scripture bags. These bags are on the way out the door and it is sad! Every time a bag leaves, I actually get sad! I get so attached to each and every bag that I make...but I know they will have a better life if I let them go...sniff, sniff!

Just kidding! I love to send these little babies out the door! I hope everyone likes them as much as I do!

I am such a fabric hoarder! I love them all! 
This little pretty is for a 12 year gal for her birthday! I have to say, I love the turquoise! 
I also love the layered flower on the front of the bag, as well as the jumbo size ric-rac! 
By far this is my favorite fabric, Heather Baily! As a matter of fact, this is the fabric that I am using for the inspiration of re-do I am doing in my sewing room. 
Polka dots rock! 
Speaking of polka dots.... 
I love the teeny tiny red polka dots on the lining! 
This funky bag is so fun! The front and back fabric is canvas, so super sturdy! 
Love the pink on the inside, it definitely softens to outside fabric!

I am sure that these bags will be put to good use, and that makes me happy!

What can you do with 2 cans of spray paint????

Last week I was in my sewing room and as I looked around, I felt that it needed a little bit of color. I usually stay in the safe zone when it comes to decorating - but I just had this urge to jump out of the safe zone. I have an idea in my head...slowly it is coming out. So, I thought I would show you one wall that is done in the sewing room. But first, let me show you the before picture:
Don't get me wrong, I loved it before, just a little bit bland.

And...here is the after: 
I love this wall now! I painted the chair, magnet board, wire rack, clipboard and all the frames a bright cherry red!  
My mail holder looks great with the red. I put some of my favorite prints in the red frames. 
My mom let me commandeer the mirror from her garage, and with a coat of paint - looks awesome! 
I like the magnet board much better flipped up on its side.  
My favorite part of the wall has to be my print of Wonder Woman! My sister, Liz, gave me this print a couple of years ago, and I am kinda using it as my new color scheme for the sewing room!  
Aren't we all just like Wonder Woman???

As I work on the other three sides of the office, I will take more pictures!

Must be time to make dinner, kids are getting cranky!

Crafty Girls Cabin Getaway!

OH MY GOODNESS! Ever since I quit working a month and a half ago, I feel like I am so much busier than when I worked! I feel like I was more relaxed by going to work! So crazy! But, I have loved every minute of being home with my kids!

I wanted to fill you all in on what is going on at Crafty Girls Workshop! I am so excited to let you all know that I have teamed up with one of my best friends, Barbara, and we are hosting a weekend getaway at a cabin in Zion National Park in Utah!!!!! The getaway is September 30th through October 2nd, perfect timing for the changing colors of fall!

Just look at these pictures of the cabin!

Look how beautiful!

Can you just imagine sitting here with that view!


A great crop room looking right out into nature!!


This two queen room is still available!

The rooms are fabulous!
Barbara and I have been working on some really fun things for this getaway! We have designed it to be almost like a "boutique" retreat! With only 18 Crafty Girls attending, we can really pamper to them!
This is going to be a weekend of laughter, crafting and fun! We have one room left if anyone is interested! :) The room has two queen beds in it, so there is room for four crafters! Just leave me a comment or email me if you are interested!

On a side note...the kids go back to school in two and a half weeks...I am so hopeful that I will be able to blog more and show you so many fun things that I am working on!

Have a great weekend!
