CHARITY SALE!!!!

I recently made and sold cross stitched buttons at the Fan Expo Vancouver convention that took place a couple weeks ago. I sold a lot of items and had a really great time! I still have some buttons and magnets left and now want to sell off the remaining stock and DONATE ALL THE SALES TO CHARITY!

My sister is part of Team Finn and the Ride to Conquer Cancer this year. Together with Boston Pizza Newton they have raised a lot of money that is going to a great cause.

Included in this post are pictures of the items I still have, so if you are interested in anything, please get in touch with me by sending me an email to: erika.glover@gmail.com. There are a few of the Mario buttons left, some Space Invaders, Zelda Health Hearts and a little something for the Hipster in your life! I have limited stock, so it’s first come first serve! I’m in Vancouver BC, Canada, so I’ll do by best to deliver items to you in person if you are in the area, but I can also ship items to you, where ever you may be!

How to dye clothes pins.  I have 100’s of clothes pins and I’m trying to think of what I can do with them.  I love this tutorial on how to dye them from Raising Orange.  Check it out here.

I’ve seen it done with scrapbook (12x12) paper but never fabric. Using a filing cabinet for fabric is genius! If you love repurposing, organization and crafting (Which I know you do because why else would you be here?) you need to visit Karen @ Sew Many Ways. She is a Jedi and I am a mere padawan.
