Confessions of a theater junkie


So I said I wouldn't but I did. I got involved in another play. I'll be assistant directing and stage managing Damn Yankees at a local community theatre. Because it's a summer show, I'll get to hang out with my girls all day and then head out to rehearsals. That's so much better that the mad rush after school to get them outside to play, fed, cleaned up, and spend quality time with them before rehearsals. We'll have all day for quality time.

I'm sure I'll squeak in some craftiness to share along the way. Be sure to check out Strong Arts & Crafts on Etsy and you can follow me on Instagram where I post more often. I hope you enjoy your Summer!

I took this to heart today. #goplayoutside by @katieisadaisy I finally got my #garden planted.

Vintage Market Recap







Lisa and I had a beautiful weekend at The Vintage Market in Coon Valley, Wisconsin. Friday was a little slow because it was a chilly and rainy day but Saturday we had a lot of traffic in our booth. I'll be adding a few more things, like some felt roses, to our Etsy shop this week so be sure to check back with me.

I love crafting with my sister. She's so talented and we always laugh when we are together. That really is the best part of this little job.

I hope you have a beautiful week and again, thank you to all who supported us at the market this weekend.

Last minute craftiness

The Vintage Market is Friday and Saturday. I've been spending the morning updating my Strong Arts & Crafts inventory while enjoying my Bewley's Irish Breakfast tea. Now comes the mad rush to finish as ALL THE CRAFTS! Well, maybe not all, but I am going to churn out a few more hoops today and finish up some picture frames I started.




Have a crafty day! Hope to see you at The Vintage Market this weekend.

Spring is in the air

Spring is in the air, well, almost. We've had some below average temperatures this past week which even included some snowflakes. I'm choosing to ignore that. The leaves are out on my trees, the grass is green, and the catkins on the Birch are long. Before you know it, I'll have apple blossoms on the tree. Spring is coming even if it is slow to arrive.

I had very little time to craft while I was working on the play for the past month. Then my sweet littlest had a virus that had her dehydrated and in the emergency room. I am delighted to say that she is back to her healthy, happy self and expecting me at school to volunteer in her classroom later this morning.

I now have some time to get crafty. It's a good thing too. In just over a week, Lisa and I will be selling our treasures as Strong Arts & Crafts at The Vintage Market in Coon Valley, Wisconsin. I'm looking forward to it. It's a two-day event with over 20 venders all selling vintage, antique, upcycled, repurposed, and handmade items. I've been working on some felt flowers and they are turning out beautifully. Here's a peek at what you'll find at The Vintage Market.
