sharon from farm and fru fru

very fun idea! i love the use it up husband loves to say farmers (him) were "green" before green was "in"....he's should see his work coat....LOTS of patches!


these are precious! i think part of the joy in "small" creating is the "finished" aspect, maybe? of course, YOUR things are just so beautiful!
Merry Christmas!


Hello Charlotte,

Love these!



Fun ideas. I'm of the same philosophy. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Charlotte.


Hi Charlotte!

I wanted to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas...I treasure my heart ornament from you that you gave me years ago so very much. Thank you for all that you share so generously!

I've been enjoying making gift tags from scraps of paper this year, too. A little ink, some paper punches . . . we're all set in Franklin, Indiana! Merry, Merry Christmas to you!

I think the reason crafting using readily available materials is for me the pleasure of making something that represents my own personality and not that of any one else's. Not that mine is better it's just mine.
Have a blessed Christmas Charlotte. Am enjoying the box of "gold" that I purchased from you.


oh I love it - and that is pretty much how we work too. Little scraps come in hand for all sorts of projects. Merry Christmas!

Necessity truely is the mother of invention! May your year be prosperous in love and creativity and minimal in stuff and strife. Merry Christmas Dear Charlotte!
Stitching on your cute girl sampler next.
