Stamp A Faire 2015 is here !

Papertrey Ink presents Stamp A Faire this weekend, starting tonight with an online party. Pop on over to Nichole Heady's blog to see the fun introduced.

I am at my home in the country with my hubby all ready and prepared for a brilliant weekend.
The kitchen has been taken over my all craft supplies. I am sure I will need everything!

Our first challenge was to take a tee-shirt and make whatever we wished. I did not buy a tee-shirt but instead I used a very new shirt belonging to my son.He had torn it within a few days of wearing it. It was too small and no mending would work. The cotton was of very good quality and  I decided to make myself a little momento of this weekend. I will hang it on the tree at Christmas to remind me of SAF 2015.

I used my treasured embroidery/sewing machine a very special Christmas/birthday gift a few years ago.

Oh and this is me. I hate taking my photo. I deleted at least 20 before I gave up and settled on this one.
I am off now to sit down with a cup of tea and watch Nichole's video to welcome us all from around the world this evening.

Well happy Stamp A Faire weekend everyone. Pop by tomorrow as I share all entries for Papertrey Inks challenges.


  1. Hooray for crafty stuff taking over the kitchen. Mine has, too! :)

  2. Hi Anne, from Clovis, California, USA! Loved your warm welcome, and sweet story about setting up for the SAF. I can't even count how many shirts, and other articles my children ripped, or lost over the years! I love your beautiful pillow! It will look lovely on your tree. And I'm dropping hints about a new sewing machine for Christmas! Looking forward to seeing more of your projects tomorrow!

  3. Love the set up and the little pillow! Wasn't that video hilarious?? :)

  4. Love your ornament, Anne. And you look gorgeous!

  5. Anne, what an amazing idea. I've always thought embroidery is so beautiful, and so are you! Happy SAF!

  6. Anne, what FUN photos you've shared.
    WOW, I love your beautiful pillow!
    So impressive!

  7. You are so clever--love your ornament! Boy--everyone is so prepared for tomorrow & I'm just winging it! Guess it's obvious I haven't really done SAF in the past--just picked a couple challenges after work. Oh well, I do better under pressure--sometimes!

  8. What a great idea !! I feel the same way about pictures too, I guess why I decided to take one of the room instead. Looks like you're all ready to go, have fun!!

  9. You are quite the seamstress too. What a great project! Happy creating today, looks like you're ready to go....!

  10. I love how you've prepared for today! Great little pillow!

  11. Love the embroidered pillow keepsake! Wonderful take on this challenge.
