Crafter Highlight - Lauri!

Lauri is one of those people who does a little bit of everything. She has taught numerous art and music classes in the local elementary school, was a room mother for 21 straight years, and has taught kid's cooking classes in her home since 1988. She enjoys doing calligraphy and any other artsy/crafty thing that might tickle her fancy. You could also call her a collector--of great quotes, fun ideas, and tasty recipes--and she loves to share them all! We never know from year-to-year what she will come up with for the boutique, but we'll mention a few of this year's creations. Her bestseller is something called "The Twelve Gifts of Thanksgiving." It's a unique and meaningful collection of thoughts about Thanksgiving that can be enjoyed one per day in the 12 days leading up to your celebration or you can take turns reading them around your feast. She also makes sure that we have a great selection of our very favorite Hobblecreek candles at great prices. Since the boutique won't be at her home this year, filling up her kitchen, you can also look for some of her family's favorite baked goods - sweet rolls, gingerbears and gingertrolls, and her most decadent cream-filled chocolate cupcakes! Her family also has a tradition of filling their huge front windows with beautiful hand-cut snowflakes. She has literally cut thousands of them. When you visit the boutique, you just might find a few of these framed hand-cut snowflakes for you to add to your collection of Christmas decor.
