Exciting things are happening in my craft room!!

Well OK, they're not happening just quite yet, but hopefully soon! I'm gearing up for two craft shows my friends and I have coming up in November, so I dug out a bunch of yummy fabrics that will hopefully turn into some fun items very soon.

Look at these fabulous colors!! The plan for these is to make some funky, chic baby rag quilts. I've never made one, so hopefully they go fast.

I think babies need to get into the holiday spirit too...

And these will become some more baby blankets with super soft Minky fabric on the opposite side. Love, love, love Minky!! I didn't pull that out yet, but believe me, I've got a ton of it. It's a disease.

I must admit most of the fabric I purchase is kind of girly, but I haven't forgotten the boys. Space ships, robots and bugs, oh my!! So cute, I can't stand it!

And look at these!

I'm also going to make some super cute pin cushions and I can't sell them without including some super cute Quilt Pins. I just got these in the mail yesterday from the UK - love them!!

I have to include one more thing. This isn't something I'm going to make, it was made for me for my birthday by my crafty lady friend Linda. Isn't it awesome? It sits on the shelf in my craft room! Thank you again Linda - I love it!!

OK, I'm off to spend the rest of my day off doing some crafting!

Come to my October Close to My Heart Card Workshop

Happy October Everybody~

It seems like I just had my September workshop. Maybe that's because I just did... last weekend. Well, it’s that time again. My October card workshop is this coming weekend and I hope you can make it!

As promised, this month I’m adding a Saturday workshop for those who cannot make it at my usual Sunday time. The workshops this month are both this coming weekend, Saturday, October 10th and Sunday, October 11th, from 1pm – 3pm both days. The workshop will be the same both days, so if you come to one you won’t miss anything by not attending the other.

The October workshop is all Halloween themed! This time around, rather than making 5 greeting cards we will be making 2 greeting cards and 4 or 5 other little fun projects. A couple of these projects are treat holders and would be fun to give away for Halloween. I wanted to hold the workshop earlier in October in case you’re inspired to duplicate these projects for friends, classmates or co-workers. This will give you enough time to gather supplies and get them put them together before Halloween.

For those that didn't have the chance to come last weekend and try out my new craft room, I thought it worked out very well! I have enough room for 12 attendees at a time in there. Love it!!

See the previous post for photos if you haven't had a chance to see the space.

So, for those of you that can make it this coming weekend, please RSVP and let me know which day you will be coming. I’d appreciate an RSVP by Thursday evening (10/8) so I can make sure to pre-cut enough supplies for everyone.

All right, for those that haven’t been before (or haven’t been in a while), here are my workshop details…

Workshop: Make 5 greeting cards (or a mix of cards and projects) using Close To My Heart papers and Accessories. We’ll try a variety of fun techniques, some that are new to me too. I pre-cut most everything and I supply all the tools and adhesives, so you don’t need to bring anything with you.

Location: At my house in Forest Grove, OR (please contact me for the address)

Cost: $15.00 OR place a Close to My Heart order of at least $20.00 and the workshop is free. I don’t charge shipping to my workshop attendees, so take advantage of that.

My contact info:

Kandi Gallegos-Garcia

I hope to see you this coming weekend. Again, please RSVP by Thursday evening, 10/8/09 so I can get to cutting.

Thanks and have a great week!


Oh, and of course if you have any interest in doing a Gathering and earning Free Product or having a customized workshop, please contact me and we can chat. I’m always willing to host events at my house if it’s more convenient for you.
