  1. I bet that class was wonderful! Her work is beautiful and I have a picture of one of her pieces on my phone. I fell in love with it at a show last year.
    I'm so glad you got to go and had such a great time. Happy belated birthday! :)

  2. Btw, i agree with your thinking on that exhibit. What an interesting concept!

  3. If you happen to be lucky enough to have gotten an Aurifil 12 thread assortment pack, the plastic organizer the thread works well as an organizer for the Rainbow Loom bands, too. My daughter hasn't gotten into that yet, though, but I have one ready!

    I was also a fan of ribbon braided barrettes (especially with the long tails with beads on the end that would whack you in the face when you turned your head quickly), and the friendship bracelets made out of knotted embroidery floss, AND had a massive sticker collection which I passed on to my niece about 8 years ago.

  4. I together with my pals were found to be looking through the best recommendations from your web site and then all of the sudden got a horrible suspicion I had not thanked the website owner for those tips. These young boys happened to be certainly happy to study all of them and have quite simply been using those things. I appreciate you for truly being considerably thoughtful and also for utilizing certain useful topics millions of individuals are really eager to learn about. My honest regret for not expressing gratitude to earlier.

  5. When you talked about your Lisa Frank stickers, I suddenly remembered that in middle school, I had a very small collection of those. We rarely spent money on such things and I only hand a small number of them. My mom let me buy a sticker collection book at a book fair, and the back page was "for trading" I loved that little book so much. When you mentioned your relative that gave you boxes of the stuff, I had a tiny stab of juvenile jealousy.. (ok bigger than tiny) and thought to myself, "Grow up lady!" haha. Seriously, though, thanks for bringing back memories of childhood when the biggest thing we had to worry about was acquiring pretty things. It was a nice trip down memory lane.. now I think I shall go design something with rainbow unicorns!

  6. Also, as a long time Annie lover and someone who has grown up in the cultural toilet of the south (no good shoes come here) I hope baby girl thoroughly enjoys the show! I am so excited for you! Please share a pic of you two and let us know how she likes the show.

  7. Thanks for your comments and pictures of Quilt Festival. It's on my quilty bucket list - some day I will get there. Thanks for the pictures of "What's for Dinner?" What a fabulous collection quilts! Thanks, too, for the book review of "The Rosie Project." That does sound like a good read. A movie I very much enjoy with a similar theme is "Mary and Max". It's a clamation film and 8 year girl in Australia who picks a random name out of a New York phone book and starts a pen pal correspondence with Max, an adult with Aspergers syndrome dealing with life in the city. It's sweet and funny and sad and is one of my favorite movies (although it is not that old). It's probably a little too much kids the age of yours, but I think you might like it.

  8. OMG those place mats ARE awesome! And pickle dish and Baltimore Bride are jaw dropping. Beautiful work!
