i just joined in the hopes of finding a few like minded DIYers in my neck of the woods. have car, will travel, so oshkosh on up to GB are not out of the question. i'm in neenah, so oshvegas and appleton are especially close for me, but i get around the valley a lot. i'm almost always open on thursday nights.

isn't that the truth up here?  Wink my hubby works in GB, so he makes the run every day.

i know there are some crafty-friendly places in oshkosh, but i really don't know of too many in appleton or GB. i was really hoping somebody would have knowledge of a craft co-op or some sort of venue where people get together to work and swap.

yeah, there's not even a stitch'n'bitch group north of madison that i know of.  my coworkers are intrigued with the idea of kickin up a GB weekly craft night.  once i get decent tires on my van i'll be more confident winter wise.  last winter, i didn't bother getting all weather tires put on(i'd just moved from seattle) and that poor van slid everywhere!!  lol  what kinda crafts are you into?

oh, too funny, francie: hubby came home last night and told me he needed to get new tires before the weather starts up  Grin

i do a bit of everything and bounce between projects. i have made jewelry (mostly beaded) since i was a kid. i knit, embroider, make melt-n-pour soaps, sew pillow shams, do a small bit of quilting. i've started making a few clothing pieces. i make barbie clothes for friends' kids and decorate wooden furniture for said dolls. i'm an avid gardener into heirloom stuff, so i do a lot of canning and drying, which i then turn into gifts. for instance, dear hubby and i make our own hot sauces and chile powder from the 9 types of hot peppers we grew, i made lavender vanilla sugar from my herb bed, and we also are just trying mustards. i used to do graphic design, so i make all my own labels and tags for stuff. oh, and i make dog treats for my pooch  Cheesy

how about you?

libby's about 7 monthes old.  we got her from the humane society... as far as we can tell she's black lab/shepard/rott mix.  and she's a dearrrrrrrrrr girl.  i just picked her up from the kennel and all the workers just gushed about how sweet and loving she was LOLOL(insert proud mama).  we took her out to a farm field in denmark a few weeks ago.  another couple were out there with their enormous wolf hounds and i was amazed at how well libby was able to keep up.  she was running like a greyhound out there LOL  very playful and very submissive with other dogs.  i bet she'd love ramone.
