We had a great time! Next class December 3! Stamp-a-stack in the morning and Christmas gifts in the afternoon!
Have you been creating anything fun for Christmas?
Last year she announced on her blog that she was fighting a cancer that was not treatable. Although we hadn't ever "officially" met, I did see her a few times at my work and had made a few reminder calls to her regarding appointments. Even has early as last month.
She had 3 young children at home and blogged about her illness, her feelings and everything she was going through. I really hoped she was going to beat it! Unfortunately, she didn't. Her service was last week, I really struggled with whether I wanted to go or not. It is such a strange thing to feel like you were friends with someone, you know so much about them, but haven't ever met. In the end, I decided the best way to honor her was to spend the day crafting in my craft cottage. The day was a gorgeous clear autumn day. I reminded myself to be Thankful everyday for the things I have in my life and crafted. ALL. Day. Long. I will miss reading your posts, hearing about your family and seeing your amazing work Katie.

Last month we had a craft class in the cottage. We made fall wreaths from fabric and felt then added silk sunflowers and ribbon. Each wreath turned out so different!
We also made bottles of homemade vanilla and a mini tissue paper pom pom. It was a fun class with great friends! We each brought a brunch item and I supplied coffee, tea, cocoa, and hot spiced cider.
Our next class is in a couple weeks and is already a full class! We are making Christmas Tags and a pretty glittered tin to keep them in or give it all as a gift. We are each bringing an appetizer to share.
Thanks for stopping by!
