When I got back to crafting a few years ago, the first big project I took on was The Friendship Bracelet Book. When I designed and made all those thirty or so bracelets, I went straight to DMC Philippines for my thread. I had remembered stealing the same ones from my Mom’s cross stitch thread stash and used them to make my bracelets instead.
What better way to welcome the new year, than by being featured on one of my go-to craft sites!
One of my paper craft tutorials will be shared each day this week.
You might not believe it, but Teacher Emma was my preschool teacher. She hasn’t changed one bit. She’s still the same gentle, caring and supportive teacher from, yes, 25 years ago. About a decade after being my teacher, we found her back in my family’s life when my brother, Milo, ended up going to the preschool (The Little Farm House) she later opened. My friend Ninna and I even took up Kumon when they started offering it at their school.
At the last 10A Alabama Crafts Fair, I finally debuted my new Pressed Flower pieces. And as if everything were planned, it was the first event that Mom got to help me with this bazaar season. She is the whole reason I got into the craft or artform anyways. Most the flowers I used for the pieces were pressed by her over a decade ago. It felt like everything coming full circle.
