Christmas in July

I am posting 31 days of Christmas fun. To start day one : pieced ugly sweater card. #christmasinjuly 

Happy July

Welcome  July ! 

I glad that you are visiting here for some creative inspiration from Me. Who I am -I a Mom, Wife , volunteer librarian and Crafter who lives in Rural Louisiana. Meaning I am an hour away from craft store -so lots of my crafts are make do projects with what I have on hand or found online. 

What kind of Crafts I do :  Well I am a paper crafter , quilter (sewer) and dabble in candle making and homemade bath products . And love to gift homemade projects as gifts to love one. As well as having kids craft classes at the library for home school groups and library members. I find myself like most craft lovers a dabbler of many things -and master of none. But love learning New things and sharing with my online friends.... Lisa
