Teacher Gifts - School's Almost Out

I can hardly believe that school is alomost out for summer. My boys give me the countdown daily. Think we are on 14 days left today. WOW! If you are like me, it has snuck up on me again and I need a teacher gift. Oh the dilema..another candle? A box of candy? A gift card?

Wanting something new and different that you know your teacher does not have but would LOVE? I have the solution for you...

a  fabric wreath or keepsake quilted ornament!

I can create in school theme fabrics. school colors,  or can even catere specific to your the  teacher's loves...she have a favorite team? favorite college? hobby? colors? Let me know and I can get it done. $10 per keepsake quilted ornament and $30 for 18" fabric wreath.

Check out my website for all kinds of ideas. Order now so I can get it made and shipped in plenty of time!

Patriotic Wreaths galore...

America's patriotism is inspiring! I am so proud to be an Americana and apparently so many of my customers are too and looking to display their patriotism. I am working diligently to create all the Americana theme wreath orders I have recieved lately. The most popular wreath by far is the American Flag replica. It is so fun to create so please keep the orders coming!

I am also working on 3 of my biggest size wreaths (28") for a huge Memorial Day celebration held in New York. I make these wreaths every year for my customer. He emailed me a while ago to let me know that they remain outside at a cemetary and survived the harsh New York winter. What a testimonial!

Have a wonderful day. I am back to work on the wreaths....

My first post...

Howdy y'all!

This is my first attempt at a post on my new blog. Please be patient as I try to figure out exactly how to do it and how to organize my blog website. Any tips would be greatly appreciated as I quickly discover computers are not my strong suit. Now, give me fabric and I can create a beautiful wreath or ornament but until I can create a computer wreath...yikes!

I am a stay home mom who loves to craft! I divide my time between 2 school age boys who are sports-a-holics which equates to hours of running them to and from practices and sporting events, trying desperately to maintain my home, and of course my true passion- creating wreaths and ornaments for my ever growing customer base.

Currently I have 2 wreaths to ship, and 4 to create. I am waiting for the electricians who are working on our new outdoor kitchen to be done so I can run to fabric store and grab some much needed supplies. While I wait - I blog :) Since I now see them hosing off their workspace, they must be done (or looking for a free perm).

I will blog later and post pix of my newest wreaths and ornaments. I look forward to sharing my crazy wreathing days with you.
