Anyways, my hubby and I spent a delightful morning yesterday checking out the sites at our local arts market. Here's the logo with the name, but if you are a local, we simply call it the RAM.
Lots of really neat stuff there. I could have spent a good bit of money. One thing I did buy from a really sweet lady (we talked a good while about what kind of sewing machine I should purchase next) were these Bird-E Towels. Here's a neat picture I found on her etsy site.
And here's a shot (from her site again) of them all stacked up and tagged. I love her new logo!
I've been using barmop towels for quite a while as a way to reduce my paper towel usage. I really like them, but I am finding that after a bit of time, they tend to shred and leave lots of little fibers hanging around. Kerri assured me that these towels were super absorbent, fast drying and strong. I can't wait to try them out.
I also picked up a set of flannel cloths that I will use to tuck into lunchboxes instead of paper napkins. My youngest has been carrying a cloth napkin everyday in her lunch this year (she does not like the hot lunches at school so she brings a lunchbox almost every day) but I noticed they seem a little big for proportions. I think this size will be perfect.
I'm also working on a set of holiday stationery that I will photography today and get up for you to check out. And also, I may d-r-a-g out my dusty sewing machine (we got in a fight about a month ago and haven't "spoken" since) and work on a stationery holder to complete my gift set. No pattern here, I'm just going to "wing it" --- that means I'm going to ask my faithful engineer-of-a-husband to construct a pattern for me to play with. He's so good at it. Until then....
