Life is Sew Good

May you grow old like beautiful lace, cherished and treasured and cared for with grace.  Doesn’t that just remind you of your sweet grandmother?  I lived with my grandmother when I was five and six years old so that I could go to school before the cut off date.  So, on the farm I learned many things; she started me out with a love of the handmade, sewing and quilting.  She taught me how to care for and respect our treasured heirlooms so that they might endure to be spoken about again with another generation.   Bits and pieces of that past found their way into my new designs this month.  I wanted a vintage frame, and the shape will seem familiar – it’s one I designed for my new logo although I had sketched it out for a die some time ago.    The fun part of the collection are the extra dies which work wonderfully to make a gift – they are spool toppers.  I thought it would be a special gift  to customize a spool set using the unfinished wooden spools you get at the local craft store – these are also going to come in handy also for making custom buttons.  Last of all there is a bobbin form for winding on a bit of  trim, ribbon, lace or bakers twine.   Come along and you can see what I made to go in the kit – the pictures are below and the link to the kit has a much more detailed view of the Vintage Spool Box.

There are a number of kits available that haven’t been promised to members and are an opportunity to try before you decide on a membership . . .

You can see prices and specifics at this link:  Becca’s October 2012 Kit

For the first month, we had to decide on an initial number and there are still several September Kits Available:  Becca’s September 2012 Kit

So many of you wrote when you received your kits a couple of weeks ago.  Thank you so much – I was so thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed opening the box and seeing all the goodies inside.  Do me a favor and share your honest thoughts of the kit – there’s a place to leave a review CLICK HERE (then go to the bottom of the page).

Ahem, I know this seems so commercial but thank you — the kits are allowing me the opportunity to keep on crafting.  Thanks for letting me gush about my memories.  The designs I’ve created are things that are special to my heart and I haven’t been able to find anywhere else.  I hope you enjoy or stop by to see what else you can do with the kit.  Cause you know we’re all about stretching it out, making it last and using it as many ways as we can!!

Hugs to you all, thanks for stopping by today!!  I’m a tiny bit under the weather, but health willing, I’ll be back tomorrow with a project :-)

    Becca, I love your designs …and begged my daughter to let me use her credit card as I didn’t see PayPal and I’m over 70. I don’t want to leave my kids credit card bills so I pay off what I use her card for by the next month—except when I bought the medical scooter. I did it over 3 months. The bad news—I was so sorry to see that this set of stamps were “clear” The description said cler AND cling so I signed up even though I hate “clear” sets. They just do not produce the saame results as rubber “cling” stamps. Please, please, please push for the better “cling” sets. Your designs DESERVE only the FINEST.ReplyCancel

    I ordered last months kit, and signed up for the year, and Oh My Gosh ….. I am fascinated!! The first project kit was WONDERFUL!! And I had a blast making it. I don’t normally copy and add my own style in but this was so perfect that I just kept right on going. Now I have a project that is just as beautiful as one of yours ….. hehehe.

    Love it and so, so happy you are doing this and that I am blessed to be a part of it.

    Thanks Becca.ReplyCancel

    I was out of town when my first kit arrived and couldn’t wait to get home when my husband told me it had arrived! Even though it was late when I returned last night, I opened it. I just could not resist the urge to “do something” so I began cutting out. Today I have set aside a little time between chores to play. Everything is lovely – my only problem is that I don’t own many inks and I would appreciate it if they were also included. They could be those little tear drop size. I am so happy to have joined your kit club and doublely happy that I can do anything to keep you crafting and sharing your tallents! Thank you so much.ReplyCancel

    Reviewer: Lillian Spitzer from Clovis, CA United States  
    I was writing a blog about your kits, and when hyper-linking back to your blog….was so surprised the second kit was being introduced.

    I am in love with my subscription!!!! (12 months) and my first package!  Becca, you outdid yourself.  These are way more valuable than what you are charging, for the simple reason… can use it over and over and over again…..because you added the dies and stamps.  Thank you so much!!!!!

    Becca – I also received my kit a couple weeks ago. I’ve have lovingly looked through everything but haven’t started my pieces yet. Life gets busy when school starts but I will make them soon. I am loving the October kit and can’t wait to see it. I am so glad to be receiving items that you have designed. I have admired your creations for a couple years and look forward to using the same supplies you do.
    I am so glad that the Lord provided this for you and that you can combine the gifts the Lord has given you and the need to provide an income.
    Many blessings dear sister,
