May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Nancy

Around the House - Candy Bar Card and Free 4th July e-Book


Dear Friends,
I want to show you the card my children made for Father's Day. It is called a candy bar card. I bought quite a few candy bars and packaged candy with names I thought we could use for the card. The three children worked together and this is what they came up with. Note, you can always cover up letters you don't need and add letters to the front or end of a candy bar name.
The card reads: "Dear Mike (Mike and Ike Candy) and Dad, Even though you are a (Nerd) you are full of (Smarties). We think you are an (Extreme) (Lifesaver). Mom thinks you are a (Big Hunk) and a (Sugar Baby). You are a (Bounty) of fun and worth more to us than (100 Grand). You're a (Whooper) of a good dad. You're everyone's (Mr. Goodbar). We love you (Now and Later). So here's some candies including your favorite (Reeses). Happy Father's Day. Love, Mom, Tim, Katie and Emily


The other thing I wanted to tell you about is that over at FaveCrafts they have a free 68 page 4th of July e-book full of recipes and crafts. The crafts are really sweet and include sewing, painting, paper crafts and more. Sorry, no basket weaving but it is cute anyway. Here is the link to download it.

Happy crafting, weaving, cooking, or whatever else you are doing this weekend.
Blessings,
Nancy

The card is cute. I will have to remember that !!! Our garden is slowly coming on. I just think it won't be the year for peppers. My adult Daughter was with her church group at a camp in Glorieta, NM. She lives in Texas finishing college. She was born in NM but never been there since. Loved the time spent there.

The card came out great, Nancy. I'm sure Mike loved it! I think its fun that you used "Big Hunk" (instead of "Chunky") and especially the use of Nerds!
