My Favorite Things!

Hi! I hope everyone is having a great day! I had an especially wonderful day because I had a phone call from my friend Su all the way from France! We got to catch up and talk about all things crafty. Her calls always make my day extra happy. We're under a bit of a cold spell here in Charleston and I'm still getting over this respiratory infection so I'm hibernating a little this week. I've got a pot of  corn chowder simmering on the stove and some cornbread in the oven for our supper. Our home feels so cozy. I just love being able to give my family something warm and comforting at the end of the day. 

I've spent some time in my craft room as well. Today I pulled out this book that I purchased some time ago but never got the chance to look through.

I'm a long time fan of Spellbinders dies and this book from Annies Attic is filled cover to cover with fresh ideas from several designers. It includes easy to understand instructions for each project, several special techniques, and the photos are absolute eye candy! It showcases the versatility and layering possibilities of the dies, letting you put your own spin on the designs found in the book. Well, I'm off to change another load of laundry~the gift that keeps on giving. Best wishes to all for a fun and crafty day!


  1. Nancy, I wanted to thank you for being a follower of my blog, The Patchwork Ark. I have featured you on my blog today! I hope you can stop by and visit. Have a good weekend.

  2. Hi Nancy,

    I can't decide which I like better, the bowl of corn chowder or the book of craft ideas!
