Getting Ready for Giving Thanks

Click here for the latest installment of "The Yarn" or "Crafty in AK"- whichever you'd prefer.  I'm including the illustrations because they make me happy to think of fall!  

 Along with this article I will be updating the sidebar of this blog to reflect any upcoming craft events I hear about in SE Alaska.  So let me know here if you have any to add or email me at tanna.craft@gmail.com!

Mom's are Wonderful!

I recently had a birthday in which I travelled out of the state (what fun!) to see sunshine, shopping and lots of fun animals.  More to come on that topic.  But as traveling gifts my mom and Cap'n's mom gave me some pretty killer gifts.

Here is the Vera Bradley quilted tote that Cap'n's mom gave me.  Wonderful colors that match all my coats and the size is just perfect for a carry-on purse!  
My mom went way over the top and got me a delicious iPhone which I used to take the above pics.  What a treat for a trip!  It was so amazing to have google, email and maps all at the touch of a portable button.  Not to mention how we used it to watch shows on the plane, talk to friends on the road, and find every taco bell within reach (weird what you miss living up here in AK).  So, now we're back all refueled and ready for a crafty winter!

Handmade For the Holidays!

How bees get wings

Always ask the beekeeper!  It's the easiest way!  Here's cap'n tying on my wings for halloween.

He's not very good as a beekeeper as you can see.  But he's a very nice fellow!

And me as queen bee, I'm not so nice you see.  That's why my minions were after Cap'n.  Poor guy.
