Ah, summer! I hope everyone across this great land is enjoying summer and all its joys! Since we’re well before Labor Day, I thought I’d put together a gift guide featuring the most crisp of summers colors – white. So please scroll down to check out the great options from your fellow Handmade Philly members.

Well hello! Yes, it has been many months since I’ve last posted to this here blog. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been posting, it just means ASID has not been my priority. I apologize to you for that! Since I don’t want you to think I’ve been neglecting life or the things most important to me, I’ve decided that I’ll be reposting or putting up links here to all the other blog posts that I’m responsible for on these here Interwebs.
To give you an idea of my blogging schedule, here are my responsibilities:
- Every other Thursday, I post either a Gift Guide or a Creative Challenge on Handmade Philly’s blog
- Every other Thursday, I post an interview on Philly Modern Quilt Guild’s blog
- Whenever I can muster the time and energy (possibly every week during the summer months), I’ll be posting many different topics on the Oakmont Farmers Market blog
- In my extra time, I post to the Friends of the Haverford Township Free Library blog
Obviously not all of my posts will interest you – unless your a quilter/crafter/artisan living in the HT area who frequents the library and loves locally grown products, in which case call me because we might be twins separated at birth – but I hope that some of them will be interesting to you. And I always try to make the eye candy worthy of a visit to the blog I’m posting on
So branch out! Check out my interests and see if maybe they interest you too!
There are very few things in this world that I love more than a pile of new clothes. Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer at and participate in the Philly Swap o Rama Rama. It was my first time there and let me tell you – it was so much fun!
I volunteered at the Handmade Philly table at which we were making monster pins or collage pins. We were a kid friendly station and had sooo many creative people sit and chat with us throughout the day. And of course, periodically I’d meander to the swap tables and snag some sweet additions to my closet.
I saw less and less of the items I provided with each visit to the tables which made me a happy camper. And I seriously ended up swapping out all the fabric in my wheelie suitcase for clothing! I managed to complete all the alterations to make everything fit within a day or two which really made the whole experience worthwhile.
Thanks a million to Megan for putting the whole thing together! And I don’t know who got Urban Outfitters to open up their headquarters but it was AWESOME!! I wonder if there are any openings for accountants….

Yes, it has been over a month since I’ve posted here! Time flies when you’re having fun I guess…
Needless to say I’ve been busy – just not here on my own site. Every week from Aug through this week I’ve been posting shop interviews on the Philly Modern Quilt Guild blog. And every other Thursday, I post either a gift guide or a creative challenge on the Handmade Philly blog. And somewhere in between those two projects, I’ve been working with another person to set up and start blogging on the new Friends of the Haverford Township Free Library site.
And did I mention that I was the quoit queen? Really, that’s just because the winning team was all male, but I’ll take what I can get!
