It's almost time ladies...  Just a few more weeks until the 
I am so excited!!  I have had so many emails asking 
"What exactly IS Craft Camp?"  
So, let me tell you about the fun filled day.

Craft camp is an all day event where you come to the beautiful Wings Event Center to eat, craft and shop all day!  We will start the morning with a home cooked breakfast then jump right into crafting.  We have set crafts that we will teach you to make during the day.  All the supplies are there and ready for you.  By the end of the day you will take home 5-8 finished projects and a ton of ideas.  My mama is the chef for the day and has already planned a delicious lunch that will be hot and ready when we break.  Mid afternoon she bakes a YUMMMMY Italian Cream Cake and has lots of snacks to munch on during the day of course.
 Wings - A Special Needs Community
WINGS Event Center is a non profit organization that supports the WINGS adults with disabilities community.  You will learn more about them and the programs they run as well as their dreams for the future of WINGS when you come to camp or check out the website and see how you can help!   WINGS has a gift shop on site that has an assortment of unique gifts as well as products made by the WINGS will not go home empty handed!

We will Also have our own shopping area full of crafting supplies, patterns, fabrics and a few other goodies you cant live without.  

What are the crafts we will be doing???  Well, I can't tell you today but when you get to camp you will not be disappointed!

So what are you waiting for???  
SPOTS ARE LIMITED so reserve your spot today!  
You have 2 choices when you register:  hold your spot with a $50 non-refundable deposit or pay your registration in full.

I can't wait to spend the day with you!
Happy Crafting~

It's National Craft Month (and how I got started...)

WOOHOO!  It is National Craft Month, which means it is time to dust off the old sewing machine, buy a few new paint brushes and heat up your glue gun...  There is only a week left to get your craft on so get busy sister!!   

In between making hats and being a mom taxi, I like to squeeze in a little late night crafting just for fun. That's how this whole "business adventure" started.  I was sneeking in a little painting after my babies were finally in bed and before I knew it Doodle Design Shop was born.  7 years later, products have changed, painting had to take a back seat and hats became the primary focus of my business (more on that change of events another day...)  We left the craft show circuit and jumped into wholesale and going to trade markets.  What a whirlwind!  And now, I have come full circle and have started easing back into more crafting and doing a craft fair here and there with my momAll that to say, crafting is just who I am.  I love it, all of it!  

So, let me show you what my Spring Break craft project was
 I have been slightly obsessed with this since I saw it last year and after my friend made one a few weeks ago I knew it was time to bust out the paint and brushes for myself!

I found the tutorial here from the Pleated Poppy. Definitely check it out and start painting!  I cant wait to find the perfect spot to hang her (and I will definitely post pics of that!)  

Here is the finished project from the Pleated Poppy 
{insert oooooo-ing and awwweee-ing here}
More craftiness coming this week... I have a few more obsessions to share :)

Happy crafting!

Monday Mania

Mondays are perfect for a little mania, am I right?  Mondays at Sew Craftastic are a time when we will share some favorite things, current obsessions and things that are just a little crazy.  So to start this Monday Mania....

I am crazy about gnomes for some reasons (I am secretly planning a gnome garden for my backyard but don't tell my hubby!)  I took a few minutes to find my favorite gnomes on Etsy and thought I would share them with you today.

Who knows...a little gnome may even find its way into the FABULOUS FRIDAY GIVEAWAY!
