So when you come the coffee pot will be brewing and we have lots of goodies that Barbara Strawser is bringing so come early and stay all day!! Please, for me!! check out the colors this is what a Sis Boom Christmas looks like. I'm a girl that can't seem to do red and green..Wassupwidat!!

I love to write so calming . The big blue signs are up , the buzz is beginning to take hold and i am so excited to see you all..I so love your enthusiasm for the handmade. If you see or know anyone from the New York Times I've been trying to get them to come for years. Being in the New York Times is on my bucket list..

That Andrea at Thomas Parks Gift had the sweetest job ever to create beautiful lush purple satin dresses for one incredible wedding that of Carey Harrelson!! Is she stunning or what. If you have a special day talk to Andrea because she is one of our very talented and lovely peeps!! She used our Marissa pattern for these cute dresses and I can not get over how lovely..Carla is going to swoon!!! I know my Carla!! Carey you are a stunner and surrounded by all the blueberry taffeta you glow..Hope your day was magical!! Forgot to mention the handsome groom..Match made in heaven!!
It's always hard to open up your home and display your work to the world and hope that it makes folks happy and that it brings a smile. I don't really ask for much more than that. I hope that you can see it in your home and that it touches you in a special way that handmade items have the capacity to do. So come bring a friend there is always coffee and cookies and lots of good convo as they say on ETSY. I can't wait to see you. Below Katie in our latest pattern called the Angie after our beloved tester Tom's wife. A truly beautiful soul. It will be at You Can Make this by next week. You know that Carla she doesn't sleep much debuting both the Leighanna and the Angie in one month. We are so grateful to her. So keep watching. My daughter Kate also holds one of our burlap hearts with a vintage jewel to give someone special. Oh and by the way the Angie has deep pockets and no zipper..you will make it your everyday dress!! Try Marie Madeline for Chandler in Blue! The blue is more like the Blue in this picture.
Please come, bring friends , laugh with us, be amazed with us!!! Stand in awe of what a village can do!! Thanks to everyone who makes this so special!!! Remember Christmas Ornaments, Jewelry, Bedding, Pillows, candles, handbags, oh and bring your book (Girls World) for me to sign or purchase one here..It will be worth a bunch of money one day!!! (I can only hope) I've made lots of artwork to share with all of you. And of course the ever accomplished Folk Artist Barbara Strawser will be in the House!! You asked for years about the artwork in my home so i thought I'd bring her to you!! Some furniture will be for sale, Huge handmade Banners, the wreathes that you can't live without. I haven't stopped and the seamstresses are in overdrive!! Some of you seemed a bit disappointed that you wouldn't be getting your handmade goodies now that I was big and famous!!!!! I would never let you down not after all the years you've shown up at my doorstep!! So let me say what I say every year there is plenty of stuff for everyone and there's no need to set up a tent or stand in a long line..we would never do that to you!! So watch your facebook and twitter feeds for more Show Highlights!! Hugs are awaiting you!! Tim Geaney thanks for the fabulous photoshoot with daughter Katie!!!
I love this stole it from my Flickr Sis Boom Sightings Group and had to share and I'm afraid I don't know more than that !! At the end of the day it's the quilts that get most of your attention and that makes me so happy. Look at the addition of the wonderful pieced pillow in Honey Child. Somewhere I see beach and waves in this quilt could it be because winter is quickly approaching? Tell us about yourself the creative person behind this quilt we are madly in love..xoxoxo Update!!! We found her!! or she found us! Melissa Quintana from Sew Addicted to blogs you are fabulous!!

Let these images represent inspiration for you to create and we love a hollaback if you saw it here first. Sis Boom loves to be original and loves to give credit to all of our creative peeps with new and fascinating ideas. It's what we are known for..in otherwords we share that pie. love you guys, get that creative thinking cap on and dive right in.
