My lovely long distance upline Debra Godfrey gave me a very cute yummy s’mores gift last year at Stampin’ Up!’s annual convention.
Now I’m finally getting to make some of my own for the craft fair I’m in this weekend in Twain Harte CA. I live along Hwy 108 in the Central Motherlode area of northern California. There are 3 more little villages ‘up the hill’ from me and then it’s national forest, rivers and places for hunting, fishing and camping. Or just plain sight seeing. Yosemite National Park is just 39 ‘crow miles’ from us, a bit east. And we and Yosemite are in the same tongue-twisting county: Tuolumne. Too-all-um-ee.
That said, there are lots of camp grounds in the area and what’s better for camping than s’mores? Especially individually packed s’mores?
I actually even found 3 cello bag toppers made with another old set. I’m just missing the Hershey bars right now. It’s fun to see how stamping styles have changed.
The tags are from a retired Tag a Bag Kit. When it comes to a mountain craft fair, not many shoppers know what items are current or not. I certainly hope to change that by recruiting them as interested class attendees and customers.
Tomorrow I’ll share some more of my goodies. I even have to make a few cards and items in the morning since I have nothing left from my favorite Woodsman stamp set, Wood You Be Mine, from the just retired Occasions Catalog. And since the Blendabilities have been removed as a tool I’ll be using my Blender pens to color ‘his’ shirt and jeans. I just love that guy! My sweetie even cut me some very thin slices of cedar branch to use on my cards so be sure to come back tomorrow to see them.
Have a great evening. And although I’m not really a basketball fan, go Warriors. It’s the first time they’ve been in the NBA finals in 40 years!
