Made a goal and succeeded!

… here i am standing between my sweet , kind, generous , helpful , organizing , cheering and smiling sister, Nora, and “Mz Thang” the wire dress-form and prop “extraordinaire”- all baggy and all. I sold  $65 (at least 1/2 to family <3)!  What I learned… don’t cut vinyl patterns when you are tired ! I also learned zipper pouches  and coin/gift card snap wallets are the most popular of what I prepared. (what you cannot see is my sock wrapped hand with a bit of a digit missing !)

Ka-Pow Backpack

This was a fun and challenging product to design and create. I will be making one more for a lady who has an autistic grandson ❤

Preparing more Up-cycling

Up-cycling a IBMA City of Raleigh event banner for a Noodle Floaty to use in Lake Wylie next weekend!! (I have a hole in my left ear drum and need to get it checked out before I can dive in again…)

This was the most fun I’ve had with Up-cycling to date! I do wonder though, if the South Carolina Lake will take offense at a NORTHERN state’s banner…??? LOL!
