Corvallis Fall Festival

Aww! So many crafters. We went to the Corvallis, Oregon fall festival this weekend and saw 170 craft booths. A little crafting overload. Some amazing artwork and handcrafted work. Fused galss is all the rage. We picked up some things for Christmas gifts (can't list 'em in case the giftee reads this, perhaps something from the booth in the photo). It in inspiring but also shows how much work there is to going to a craft show. I saw some vendors I knew from shows in Arcata, like a women that does leather work and I was wearing her belt! Heal, arm, heal. I want to cut fabric again!

Thrift Store Volunteering

Cerise and Theresa vorked (volunteer working) their first day at Cat's Meow thrift store in Corvallis. The store supports Heartland Humane Society. Good thing: no cat box cleaning. Bad thing: lots of cool stuff. We only spent $22 today, mostly on fabric and craft supplies. They have great fabric. Before we started vorking there we got a bolt of wool fabric for $8. We can see that it will be expensive to volunteer there.

We also fund a super cool big pot and made dill pickles. POP! another just sealed.

The best part of the day: gluten free bakery!! What a yummy day.
Happy Pickling, C & T
