Recap of Mandeville Market (guest post by hubby)

I guess you could call this a "guest post" from Haley's Husband. Haley is currently driving to Waco Texas for her sister's wedding on Saturday. She has done a lot of amazing crafts for that wedding that hopefully she will do tutorials on in coming weeks. In the mean time I thought you might like an update on some of the crafty things that she has been doing lately. Especially since some of you may be visiting this site in reference to meeting her at a recent craft fair, or the hardware store. She seems to make friends everywhere she goes :)

2013 Craft It Forward

Craft, Forward, Craft-it, 2013, DIY, Chain Mail. Chain Letter
My Sorority Big posted this challenge to her Facebook, and I thought it was brilliant! So in lue of my love for the idea, I am doing one for Facebook, one on here, and one on Pinterest! 18 chances for me to send you something cool :)
Even if you arn't one of the first 6 on each platform, I would love to hear if you are starting a chain, so please comment! I love any feedback. Feel free to use image to start a chain. I can even put your blog title on it if you like...???

2013 Craft-it-Forward: The first 6 people to comment will receive from me, sometime in the next calendar year, a handmade / homemade / crafted item. There will be no warning and it will happen whenever the mood strikes me. (Don't forget to message me your address!) The catch? Those 6 people must make the same offer in their FB status to at least 5 other people. Go! Craft! Do!

Yay for new beginnings! and Happy Pinning Everyone!!
