"SNAP" to It!
Remember the cute colored snaps I used in some of my bags a while back that I had gotten at my local JoAnn's? I ran onto them one day when I was there but I hadn't seen them since then and that has probably been a year or more. Well Thursday when I stopped in for a zipper I see they had them again. So if you live close by me and are still wanting some you better "SNAP" to it because I don't think they will be there for long. They even had new colors like the brown and bronze, so I added those to my purse hardware stash. They just add a little pop of color to your bags I think.
You better hurry, supplies are limited because of me!!!
My hands are always busy, this has led to many crafty endevers, interior design, paper crafting, or sewing, but my favorite obsession is quilting and making bags. You can just call me an "Old Bag"! My husband, Stuart and I are empty nesters who like to travel in our 5th wheel trailer and spoil our three kids, two son-in-laws, one daughter-in-law and five darling grandkids. (if there's any money leftover from buying fabric!)
I work at Corn Wagon Quilts in Springville, Utah. The perfect job for me. I teach quilt and bag classes for the Corn Wagon and Dave's Bernina in Provo and St. George, Utah. It's a good thing we don't have to live off what money I make, 'cause you know it has to buy fabric! Glad you stopped by, pull up a chair, a diet coke, chocolate and lets get accquainted.
"The desire tocreate is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish tocreate something that did not exist before .... creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty ..."

This is my husband Stuart. This is who I share my nest with. He likes the outdoors, hunting, guns, and ME! He is a wonderful cook (am I lucky or what?) He is a fun, kind and loving father and grandpa. I'm so blessed to have in my life.
