I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but you can now sign up for a Newsletter from KimsCraftyApple (upper right on my blog).  Here’s what you would have received today from me if you were signed up….


Happy Wednesday everyone!

I just put a few things in the mail box (a typewriter ring and my application for a Columbia County Barn Quilt) and I saw TWO baby Sand Hill Cranes!  How neat is that!?

Anyway, lots going on!  The second Project QUILTING Challenge – Road Trip is currently up for voting.  We had 10 amazing entries this week.  Please vote (upper left of blog) and comment on this blog post:

If you follow the instructions on commenting you will have up to SIX chances to win a $20 gift certificate to my etsy store, theApple!P5230190 Unfortunately my baby girl, Capri, has had a fever for the last three days so getting things made for the Dragon Art Fair (  this Saturday has been a bit difficult.  But I’ve still managed to get a few things made…

A sneak peak at what I’ll have at the sale:

I’m making bags out of fabric that I have hand painted!  I just heat set more fabric last night and hopefully I’ll find a little time in the next few days to create some more amazing bags from them. 

One last bit of news.  Etsy is organizing a Mass Craft Party Meet Up on June 18th in honor of Etsy’s birthday.  The 50 locations that have the most RSVP’s will receive free craft kits from etsy!  They are looking on June 7th so that doesn’t give us more time to spread the word – but if you are in the Madison Area you can sign up here:


With that, I hope to see MANY of you on June 5th in DeForest and if you can’t make it (or if you can) again on the 18th!


Take care and Happy Crafting!


PS.  Next Project QUILTING Challenge is posted this Sunday, June 6th at NOON EDT!

  1. I am really very sorry that this is a form letter :(

    However we spent days following everyone on the Simply Follow list, and out of 690 people, maybe only 10 followed us :(

    I don’t know if you joined our blog or not, but if you have a moment, could you PLEASE go over to and give us a quick follow?

    Again, sorry for this form letter, but I am going to to back to ALL 600+ people that we followed and leaving this note. Hopefully we will get a super great turnout now!
