EXCITED to share . . .

I just could NOT wait to share this with you!

Back at the end of last year, I was asked to become a Freelance Crafter for Jo-ann Fabrics & Craft Stores which is headquartered in Hudson, Ohio, and create a few projects for them.  Of course I was thrilled to do so and made two different projects which were to be shared Spring 2012 as 'Project Sheets' in the Jo-ann Fabrics stores across the country.  HOW COOL IS THAT!

So if you are in your local Jo'ann Fabrics & Craft store and see the project sheet shown below ... you will know who the creator was ... " ME " ... LOL!

They supplied me with all the product needed and the idea ... 
all I had to do was make their vision become a reality.

I LOVED this creation and really enjoyed making it!  
It looks SO COOL when the lights are lit!

The project sheets they provide 'FREE' in the stores are so helpful.
There is a list of supplies & directions on the reverse side of the project image.
So you can get everything you need and get started!

As soon as I see my other project posted, I'll be sure to share it with you.
Thanks for letting me "Toot My Horn" a bit ...
