Good News


  Image via

I’m feeling so lucky and blessed lately.  I just found out that I won a trip to Creative Camp 2011 at the Custom Sewing Institute in Navasota, Texas !

The camp was started by Susan Kostelecky and is 3 full days of hands on classes, seminars and camaraderie.  I am excited to learn new techniques like tufting, making cornices with firmaflex, workroom efficiency and much more.  Even though I’ve been fabricating for over 20 years I think there is always something new to learn and more education is one of my goals for this year.

I wanted to say thank you to Judith at Creating Balance.  She had a give away to celebrate her 50 followers milestone and I won $25.00 to a great online store….. CSN.  Her kitchen makeover was just featured on Tatertots and Jello, so be sure to check it out.


More happiness………… Elizabeth at Life of Style awarded me the Stylish blogger Award ! She is a designer in Raleigh and blogs about all kinds of stylish things so I’m honored that she would think of me.  Thank you !

I was so excited for you when I got the email about the winners for the camp! I entered too but didn't get chosen though. You are right, even though we've been doing this for over 20 years, you can always learn something and just the fact that you are in the presence of ladies who are artisans at their craft, well, that is priceless!

I love my chocolate too!

take care, Tammi
