Crafty Apron

I wanted an apron to wear while crafting in my studio that would help inspire me.  With a 50% off coupon in hand my friend EB and I went to Michaels and I picked up this pink plain bib type apron for $2.99.  We then stopped at the local antique market where I found this round table topper with this wonderful lace trim and stitching.  I just cut off a portion of it to fit the apron and sewed it on and applied some trim from the Fabric Outlet (next door) with Fabri-tac.  I added lace at the top that was cut off a portion of the fabric. 

Mini Book Making Class

Lynne Spurlock held this class at my friend Jean Van Brederode's Studio.  We all made these adorable tiny Booklace's (book necklace).


Last year was one and now there are three.  They are just too fun to create.



Something we look forward to every May is the Greek Festival held in Camp Hill, PA by the Greek Orthodox Church.  Lots of great music and entertainment and most of all the wonderful food.  It takes us back to our trip to Greece if for just one day.  So many great memories.  But now we can head over to Mechanicsburg to a new greek restaurant that just opened and they have a wonderful variety of greek food to choose from.  Did I mention the deserts??  Baklava Cheesecake......ummm.

Trip to Arizona

I had a wonderful time visiting my friend Glenda in Arizona in April.  We had great weather for the Tempe Arts Festival.  I love the mountains and scenery around the area.  We always go to the Swap Meet and lots of fun shopping places.


Sorry I missed April but things got busy with lots going on.  My dear friend Elizabeth Singer hosted a wonderful Tea at her home.  There were so many delicious treats to choose from.  We always enjoy getting together and sharing our latest endeavors and catching up.
