DragonBen's Flag

Here is an example of how creative people in our family are.
One afternoon, after school, DragonBen (8 1/2) sat down and decided he wanted to make a flag. He drew the elements and cut them out (with a little bit of help on the details from his Mom) and then glued it together.
His Mom (Terri) is the one who created our Happy the Crafting Crab mascot and DragonBen wanted to incude that in his flag (his own version).
We proudly 'fly' this flag from one of the posts behind the cash register.

Web site correction

It just came to my attention that the class listed on our web site for this Saturday afternoon (10/25/08) is incorrectly listed as the Herringbone Twist.

In actuality, it is the Herringbone Band which is pictured here. The price is $18, including all supplies.

Make and Take

Don't forget, if you want to make a few cards for the Fall, Birthdays or Christmas, we have a Make and Take going on this Saturday (10/11) from 10 - 5. And again on Tuesday (10/14) from 1 - 5. No reservations needed, just stop by when you can and stay as long as you can.
There are 10 projects to choose from. Each project is $1, but if you purchase $25 of crafting merchandise, they are free.
You can make as many or as few different projects as you wish. We ask that to let others make the projects also that you limit yourself to one of each project.
This is a good way to get a few special cards, get some ideas, or learn a little about stamping and paper crafts. No experience necessary.
Hope to see you then!
