Tags for  Swap !
Want to swap .?


Art Is You in Petaluma

I'm  getting excited and getting ready for "Art Is You in Petaluma." I'm making these adorable tags just in case someone wants to do a swap with me. And I'm going with a friend and hope to meet new one as well.

I'm taking two classes this year. One with Carrie Clayden "TuTu Much Fun and one with LoriMarie Jenkins "Encaustic Book .
The trunk show on Saturday is alway worth the trip even if you don't attend any classes. It's open to the public 6:00 to 9:00.
Nightly Art in the Bar sounds like it will be fun along with daily motivations.
So I will be posting from day to day pictures to share with you. 
Oh and it's also Halloween and Vine a super crafters showcase ! To bad I'm going to miss it.  I'll be in class all day but my friend Gina will be able to go . Next year I'll have to plan my classes around it.

Fire In the Foot Hills

Wild fires still burning in my area. The King fire has burned over 18,544 . So sad. Every time I turn on the news I here more bad news,more evacuations of towns.
My house in in the flight path where the plans fuel up.  I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. The winds keep shifting.
I pray we get the rain they are predicting on Thursday !

We are going camping next week. Going to Castanoa in Pescadero  Ca .It's on the coast, 25 miles south of Half Moon Bay.  I will share so pictures of the trip when I get back.!

  What twice in one day !  I needed to step away from a sewing project I'm working on for a mother of the groom.
 Now I can finish what I started to tell Yaw all. 
New ventures. I am one of three instructors at Brothers Sew & Vac. No I'm not a sales person silly. I'm one of the sewing instructors . So far I have 0 students , I know funny right ? It's ok this gives me time to learn on all the sewing machines Oscar has for sale, serger's, quilting and embroidery machines .  One day a week and a bit of a drive . We will have to see how it goes.
And  I have gone over to the dark side , say what ! yes I'm going to quilt. This is something I thought I would never want to do but quilting has come a long way with the new machines that do just of about everything for you. I'm taking a long arm class at a Viking Sewing machine store in Folsom ca. I'll be certified to use there very $$$$ mega quilting machine. This machine finishes up the top of your quilt. And that is a big job if you just have a reg. sewing machine. I cant even imagine stuffing all that fabric under mine. What a class right !
 And I'm opening up a Etsy Shop to sell my lovely's . A little of this and that. Meaning doggie bow ties and apparel and SOAP ! I know really. All organic. No Lye at all in the ingredients. Goats milk and Shea butter soaps. What nice gifts. And a fun project to keep me busy this winter.
 O.K. that it for today and I will be keeping pic. up of my soap makings at the end of Aug.
Any questions e-mail me at

I post new recipes weekly. And I promise this is the last one .
 So much has happened with my career this last year I just know I can overcome any obstacle. I'm venturing into something completely a little different in my creativity.
