Whoopd-what? That is right! Whoopdwhoop!

My friend, Jamie, introduced me to a new site (I believe it started in January-ish) that allows users to upload handmade items for trade without exchanging money. You do not even have to trade with the person requesting your item!

There is a credit system (Whoops) used for making trades based on the value and shipping of that item. The amount of Whoops ranges from 1-5 Whoops.

I have only listed one item so far, but I plan to list more once I get the hang of things.

Go to this link to sign up ( I also get.25 Whoops if you sign up with this link, so that would be awesome):

You can also check out their Facebook page here.

Let me know what you think!

My Newest Crafting Project!

Today I got up bright and early to give a presentation on "Producing Photo Books" and the Blurb program for Home Video Studio. Ever since I got home, I have been sewing up a storm and waiting for my sister-in-law to arrive. Earlier in the week, I had spent a few hours after school melting down plastic I had collected over the last few weeks in preparation for my new project I have been meaning to try out for the last year.
Today I tested out my pattern for a fused plastic bag lunch sack (the small size) and produce sack (the larger size). They turned out really night and the sewing machine did not screw up on my like it had been when I used it last. Here are some photos of my trials. I am not sure what to charge if I sell them at one of the next 4 craft fairs I have later this month and next, but I was sure happy with the outcome. I would love to know what you think!

Happy March!

Hello! Boy, do I have some catching up to do. I have been so busy with new crafting projects and teaching my art students... More in-depth blogging to come, but I wanted to share a few links and photos for now!


Here is the latest I have created! Help it get hot by visiting and clicking on the handmade items!

This is one of my favorite treasuries I am in currently (out of about 120), which has our Building Block Men Rainbow Crayons.

My shop is slowly, but surely getting a make over. I am changing up my listing photos so most backgrounds are white in color. I think the white helps the handmade items pop out a little more! Here are some of the new photos and listings...

Check back over the next few days to see what else has been going on in the crafting and art world!
