So glad to be the first event to kick off your long weekend celebration! Happy Birthday to Tami Sever! It was also wonderful to spend the evening with 2 of my favorite former students ever, Kira and Brenna! I have to say that the Pumpkin Spice Mules that were added to an already fantastic night were the best libation to enter my workshop! Such different, unique boards but all equally beautiful! Enjoy your weekend girls!

From the first day we purchased our new stove, I hated the glass top. No matter what I did, it never looked clean. Today, I decided to make a stovetop plank which fits perfectly over the surface and can double as a tray. Great Christmas gifts! Just throwing it out there!

Another great night painting boards at Blue Ridge Winery for a fundraiser. It was an honor to be asked by my friend Teresa Lusardi to hold this event in honor of her daughter Kayla Gregson, as a start of a foundation in her memory. Beautiful job done by all those who attended! Same design with different paint choices and techniques always make it fun to see the outcome and all equally beautiful!

If someone ever would have told me that my life would consist of making cornhole boards I would have laughed. However, It is and I'm loving it! Always getting new and unique requests, and the beauty of customizing these is they don't have to come in a "pair".
They make excellent gifts and orders are coming in for Christmas. If you're interested, please contact me so I can make sure you have them on time. Also. I have to add that you're on your own for bean bags. I hate to even sew buttons on!

I’m so happy with this craft and the time I had doing this. Being with other people who share the love to help our addiction family, spread awareness! Much Mahalo for B & B doing this Fundraiser for Kayla Greyson and family.
Whew....... I looked at this way too quickly, with early morning eyes, and thought "Baskets and Broads!?!??"! Well, that, too!
We had such a fantastic time at Basket and Boards event at Blue Mountain Vineyards!
