Occasions Catalog DSP and Buttons and Bows Share

New Buttons and Bows and DSP share


I have been a little behind in keeping up with my posts this last week.  Those of you who know me also know that I work as a tax preparer for H & R  Block and this time of year is very busy.  But I have been working on projects for my classes as well as projects for family and friends.

This week the goodies for the share arrived…… Packets of beautiful paper and vellum,  spools of scrummy ribbon and the cutest buttons and clothes pins!

I spent a lovely couple of hours cutting and sorting them all ready to go to their  new homes……… If you would like to join in the next share please contact me….. I will be delighted to welcome you to the club 🙂
