Saturday, June 22, 2019, 9:30 – 3:00, Hearts and Paws 16th Annual Hearts and Paws Pet Adoption and Care Fair at South Park Fairgrounds!

If you’re wondering where I’ve been, I’ve been pretty busy making things lately! Hearts and Paws (information below) is coming up, so I’m stocking up for that and for my loosely-planned Open House next month. That means I’m making way more things than usual and it takes whole days. So when I have several things to make for events and to have in stock—tiles, magnets, pins, accessory bags, totes, little purses, plaques, frames…and more—I have to spend more time each week in production.

    As if my fridge can hold any more magnets…LOL! I pick up a new one one every trip, then ‘gift’ them to The Hubby. Manny took great interest in the butterfly magnet that I brought back from Georgia, so that one had to be removed. It’s on the side of my metal filing cabinet, with a myriad of other magnets! The Hubby really doesn’t want anything, but how can I not remember him somehow while I’m gone?
