Something to savor....

Here's a sneak-peak at my next tutorial.  It is a simple envelope-style wristlet that can be embellished in endless ways for a variety of different looks.  I'll give you the pattern and directions, but the decoration is up to you!  I'll post this next week.  But in the meantime, you'll need to locate a scrap of vinyl at one of the garage sales I know you'll be attending this weekend. 

I'm headed out to my annual family reunion, so I'll be gone until Monday.  The family in question is my late maternal grandmother's family.  They are Serbian (well, I am too!), and proud of it! Imagine a bunch of dark and handsome men with deeply dimpled chins and their female counterparts camping and fishing in the Beartooth Mountains of Montana as if they were little brown bears themselves.  While pale and freckly me and my red-headed children reapply our sunscreen and get our fishing tackle stuck in trees!   The best thing about my Serbian family, is they strive hard to make everyone feel welcome and you need not be "blood" to be "family".  Many of the regulars at these reunions are not blood relatives.  We have a history of taking strays into our fold and love them thoroughly nonetheless...

In the meantime, please check out all my posts and pages and leave me lots of comments!  I would love to return home from a weekend of camping to find my inbox full o' feedback!

Goodbye in Serbian is zbogom or dovidjenja.
Good morning is  dobro jutro.
Good night is laku no'c.

Happy crafting and big Serbian hugs from Montana!


  1. I hope you're having a great time at your family reunion. And yes, those Serbian men are quite handsome. :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! No-reply commentors don't get to read my witty replies, and that's just sad.
