today: jan 24

today was a day full of sugar and spice. Home Ec shop was hosting a bakesale for Doctors Without Borders so i whipped up a couple of batches of lavender shortbread, stitched up some wax paper envelopes and hopped on over for some sugar and socializing.

actually, there was a lot more socializing going on than sugar, at least for me. i picked up a bag full of amazingly gorgeous sweets and passed them all off to the mister. i did however partake of the italian poundcake. so very very good!

there were elvis cakes

salted brown butter rice crispy treats

more shortbread than you can shake a stick at

homemade jam

banana spice muffins

and so much more.

i headed home around 3pm and by that time we had brought in over $500! isn't that awesome? i need to head back sometime soon because jenny has some nifty packages of roving for needlefelting, a new selection of charm packs o' fun and i think i may be teaching a dilly bag class there soon.

**whoo-hoo! we made over $1000! thank you to everyone!


  1. Your link for the roving peaked my interest. I've recently become interested in this product (never heard of it before) in that it's used to make "rocks" for a rug on the VivaTerra site. I would love to have the rug but it's $500. I have no idea if I could really make it. I'm not very crafty; I just have great ideas.

  2. i LOVE Viva Terra..those enamelware dishes are on my list for the trip.stupid expensive but so so pretty!

    i think you could totally make the rug. i haven;t yet tried needle felting but kidlets can do just "punch" the roving and shape it as you go. my brain won't be able to make anything other than a rock or blob but i'm gonna try making some valentines.

    good luck and go for it!

  3. This is so awesome, such a great idea, thanks for posting. I wish I could've come! ;)
