I am hosting a Woman’s Crafternoon event at my local library in March.

Our project focus will be on making spring wreaths.

  • You will receive something handmade from me within the next few months
  • Post about Pay it Forward on your blog/social media site of choice, and send something handmade to the first five people who comment on your post before 2011 is over. Keep the craftiness going!
  • You can send anything, big or small, it just must be handmade.

New HGTV Show: Cash & Cari

Many of you may have already seen the last month on episodes from the new HGTV show Cash & Cari, but I thought I would share this tidbit of info anyways. The show is filmed right here in Michigan!

The host Cari Cucksey has a shop called RePurpose in Northville, MI. How cool is that?! I see a road trip coming on.
