Craft Week!

In less than a couple of weeks, our very first Craft Week for girls will take place.  I can not tell you how excited I am! Each week, eight or more girls will fill my house with their presence, their enthusiasm, their joy, their silliness and their individual personalities.  The idea for Craft Week came to me one day - in a moment of brilliance (haha - not really), but maybe in a stroke of genius. ;)  Truly, God will take all the glory in this event and the idea for it as he uses my talents to help us raise funds for our adoption.

The fabulous fabric designer, Jennifer Paganelli (insert my squeal here), has generously offered to partner with me as a sponsor for Craft Week for Girls! Jennifer blogs over at and she is also the author of "Girls World: Twenty One Sewing Projects to Make for Girls". I've had a copy of her book for awhile now and love it!  Jennifer sent us some of her beautiful fabric to sew with and a copy of her book (which I think one lucky girl will be taking home with her this Summer!). 

Details are below for anyone interested! The July camp week is FULL at this time, but the June week has a few spots available.  The projects I have planned with the girls are going to have them in crafting heaven.  It's going to be so much fun!

1. Dates: June 17 - 21st and July 22-26th (July is now FULL - waiting list)

2. Time: 9 am - noon daily

3. What will we do?  
We will get creative with fun new projects and let your inner rainbow out!  
There will be sewing (beginners welcome & must bring sewing machine), painting, hammering, glueing, laughing and making new friends.  There will be fabric, pom poms, glitter and lots and lots of color!  We will teach you what you need to know for each craft and there will be helpers along the way.  Everyone will complete & take home at least five projects. We will have an AWESOME time!

4. Who can sign up? GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!  8-14 (if you are close to the age range-contact me!)

5. Where will camp take place?  At my home in River Chase (off 306 in New Braunfels).
It has workspace for everyone, large kitchen, living room and porch for girls to enjoy.
There are 4 acres to explore, feed chickens, collect eggs, cuddle with cats and belly rub the dog.

6. How much does it cost?  Price for the whole craft week camp is $125.  Everything is included (a snack too!)- all you need to bring is YOU!

7  How to sign up?  Just email me to get your name on the list! Send your child's name & age, name of primary contact person, contact info (phone and email) and which camp week you prefer (each
week will have 8 spots available).  A deposit of $25 will be due within 10 days to save your spot.  Balance is due the first day of camp. That's it!

Who am I? I'm Lisa Holcombe, homeschool mom to six (5 of those girls), sewist & crafter.  Contact me for questions.  email: - my blog           - my shop"Girls World: Twenty One Sewing Projects to Make for Girls"
