The Count Down Begins!!!!

2012 is just two days away and tour is just Six months away!!!!  So let the gathering, sewing, painting, gluing, hunting down, creating begin.  Here are a few suggestions to help you get going....

  1. 1. Ask your friends, neighbors, relatives, anyone really if they have any wonderful treasures that they would like to give you that you can then sell.  Clean them up, throw on a bit of paint, glue it if it's broken and a piece of junk becomes a treasure.
  2. 2. Start making the things that you make best - knit it, sew it, glue it, paint it, weave it, hammer it, chisel it.... you get the idea.  The most important thing is to start - now!
Let me know if you have any questions!!!  I have included some photos for ideas.
This is a great example to give you an overall "feel" of what your area at
