Stamp Out Hunger 2016 

This year’s event was a success! We raised over $1200 and 1300 pounds of food! The door prizes were a big hit and the raffle prizes were great too! 

One of the raffle prizes was a night in a gorgeous hotel off the Pier and this basket full of goodies.    
Here’s the banner.

  One of the best prizes was this scrapbook tote packed full of awesome items!

If you’re in Oregon next April I recommend checking out this all day crop with make and takes and other amazing projects!


Blogging Block

To those of you who visit my blog as often as I visit other blogs, you may have noticed that it has been a very long time since my last post.  Many reasons come into play here, though I won’t go into them.  So, I will try to get back into my old groove of posting crafty things.  I am in the process of sewing, quilting, knitting, spinning, and scrapbooking.  There are lots of other things that I’m sure you will read about whether you want to or not, but we’ll get to those when we cross that bridge.  Unfortunately, I have no fun pictures to share at this time, but I will be posting more and more often.

I went on vacation with my family to Astoria this past weekend and went to Anna Lena’s quilt shop where I stumbled upon some very gorgeous fabric by Marcus Brothers called Surf & Sand.  It’s so pretty.  I bought a total of 4 1/2 yards, so hopefully I can get a lot of use out of it.

I will try to send more later.  🙂
