Mandy's off to SNAP! this week and has been busily preparing. Last night she got frustrated with her embroidery machine while trying to add her custom logo to a canvas bag. It just wouldn't work for her. She vowed that she needed a new machine, which I knew would cost more than all three of my motorcycles put together (don't judge me because I spend differently than you).

Email from Mandy today: "did you pray for my sanity?  I tried to sew that bag again this morning and it worked.  awesome."  

My reply: "I pray for your sanity several times daily."

Fortunately, she's heading to a place where sanity is not questioned for things like embroidered bags, frame walls, spray painted lawns, pallet furniture, or dumpster diving.

  1. Good husband! Sanity prayers are a much needed commodity in the crafting world! haha

  2. Haha, I can beat you on this one. My husband started with the $500 sewing machine with embroidery functions and upgraded to the 6-needle entrepreneurial level machine within 6 months. Why? Because he wanted to make patches and hats and shirts for his Star Wars light saber group. He got his machine on layaway from a local business though and has almost paid it off in less than a year. It was under $6k.
