Catered Crop–The Fabric of Our Lives


Hello crafty friends!  Linda at the Catered Crop came up with a fun challenge for us.  This time around, we want to see your creations using FABRIC!  How fun is that?  Just use some fabric in your paper crafty project.

Well, you know that they say timing is everything.  I had a few ideas but when I went up to my craft room I found a pair of jeans my daughter put on my desk for me.  She said that since they are too small and have a rip in the knee, she thought I might be able to use them for something.  How right she was!


2015-05-15 CC Fabric challenge WM



As always, Linda has curated a Pinterest board chock full of inspiration.  Check out her board Fabric Of Our Lives.   Click on the photo to go directly to her board.



Be sure to link up your project using fabric at the Catered Crop.   I can’t wait to see what you create!


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
