Hello and welcome!

“You can do that.”

If I only had a dime for every time my mother and I have said that to each other…. Well, I’d have a LOT of dimes! Mom and I spent much of my pre-mommy years wandering around craft fairs and the quaint small town shops dotting Northern California’s tiny tourist villages. When we came across something we felt was worthy of our attention we would often gleefully declare, “YOU can do THAT!” in a hushed whisper. However, once back at home, Mom was always significantly more likely to actually try out an idea than I was. A crafty pioneer!
“Martha” earned her knick-name because (like the real Martha) she could take any project on and arrive at success….eventually anyway. I didn’t get interested in earnest until I had matured enough to have the patience for all the screw ups that happen while trying to make stuff….needless to say, over time, the seam ripper and I have become close friends.
Mom has been gone nearly two years now and it was after she passed I took to handcrafting things with zeal. Mostly to keep my hands busy while my heart mended. I had heard work was good for grief and took that to an extreme. I’m hooked. I can’t seem to be able to get enough of trying out new techniques and learning all I can. Always a new project on the horizon.
Kelly and I wanted to have a place for all of those who are less then confident about taking on a handcrafted project. We are here to show you our triumphs and failures and to hopefully, sometimes show you the way to triumph yourself. With all that said I want to invite you to see my creations at CrzyBagLady.Etsy.com or be inspired to create your own from the fabrics in SewFineFabric.Etsy.com
So sit back, relax and laugh along with us (or at us).
