Come out of cold and warm up with Saturday Crafters!
Happy New Year!
I hope you're ready to make some positive changes this year to keep you happy and motivated to keep crafting! Here is something I found to help you out with that.
15+ Ways to Enhance Your Day:
Get up early.
Look around outside before going to work.
Relax and enjoy your meals.
Spend time with friends (at Saturday Crafters).
Find a quiet place to go to.
Praise yourself and others.
Develop positive relationships.
See your mistakes as stepping stones.
Keep track of your own moods so you can watch out for them.
Say "No" without feeling guilty.
Learn effective time management.
Pay attention to health, diet and sleep.
Keep from comparing yourself to others.
And most importantly, spend time daily in the Lords's Word and prayer.
Here is a January Kindness Calendar from the Action for Happiness people. Check out www.actionforhappiness.org
Here is what was going on in December at Saturday Crafters - I forgot to take pictures of our pot luck, but there was lots of good food and tasty treats!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
And that means it's time for a pot luck lunch at Saturday Crafters this month! Bring your favourite dish or dessert and share in the spirit of the holiday season.
Did you take a look at the Kindness Calendar I sent out last week? Did you notice that on December 16th it says to "make a card or decoration for someone special" - I've got you covered! I have a pattern for a small paper pieced Christmas tree that could be used as a post card, decoration or a mug rug. I have not made this before, but if you'd like to join me in trying, let me know and I'll send you the instructions to print off. You will only need small amounts of green and white fabric - it only measures 6" x 6".
Check out what was being created last month at Saturday Crafters:

Saturday Crafters September 16th 10am-3pm
Its that time of year again! Cool fall nights and a craving to get back to our regular routines and that includes SATURDAY CRAFTERS!
I can't wait to see everyone again to see what you've been working on over the summer or what you hope to work on in the colder months ahead. When the temperature drops, it automatically makes you think of warm and fuzzy projects to make for yourself, loved ones and even strangers who need a helping hand.
Come out and join us for great company, conversation and crafting!
Here are some things that were made by Vicky and Jodie over the summer. Vicky made the rag quilt and basket, Jodie the half square triangle quilt, knitted flag pillow and shawl in a ball shawl.
Here a few pictures of Adam and Jodie's trip to Stitches Mid-West in Chicago - so much yarn! and we got to meet and be interviewed by Kristy Glass Knits and also met Mr. Hugzzz (he makes Big Stix knitting needles). Adam is hooked now! (no pun intended haha!) **sorry the one picture is turned**
Valerie Judas, myself and some other Kingsville knitters/crocheters did another yarn bomb at the Kingsville Folk Fest:
