Come Create with us...

Happy Dance! 💃🏻 I'm so excited to FINALLY be able to tell you about the upcoming retreat at my home studio with my friends, Jennifer Allred (@stitchalongwithjen) and Amy (stitchalongwithcoko)! 👏👏. The Holiday Letter & Stitch Retreat in my home studio space in Shawnee, KS October 25th-27th!! 🎄 🧵 🖊

Our schedules have aligned and even though I know it's short notice, I hope you'll join us! I picked up a needle and thread for the first time in years back in March at the retreat I attended in Albuquerque - and then again in Nebraska when I taught at Handmade U. It was so much fun I haven't been able to stop and I'd love to have you join the three of us!

If you've ever wanted to hang out with my friends and I for a weekend of lettering, stitching, eating, laughing, crafting, shopping and donuts - this is your chance! ✂️🍩🖊🧵🛍🍁 You don’t have yo be an expert stitcher or letterer - we’ll show you all you need to know!

The retreat begins Friday, October 25th at 5pm and continues through Sunday, October 27th at noon. All meals are included - dinner on Friday, all three meals on Saturday and brunch on Sunday. All the supplies you'll need for every project are also included. Cost for the weekend is $380.00.

All the fun will be at my house - stitching, lettering, some other fun crafting, and we'll be wearing comfy clothes - no need to dress up! 🙌

Please don't feel you can't come by yourself - we're a gang of nice girls and you'll be welcomed with open arms! 💗 You won't be a stranger for long and I look forward to meeting all of you!

I hope you'll join us - if you have ANY questions, please email me at galenation@galenation.com and I'll answer as quickly as possible! Hope to see you there! 💗

New Fall Mugs

New Fall Mugs

It isn’t fall without the debut of my fall mug! 🍁 At least not for me! 😂 I went rogue and ignored #nationalblackdogday and found out about #nationalhandmadecookieday way too late so this is what I’ve got! 🎃.
.
Cooler weather is finally approaching (she said optimistically) and these cups are perfect for morning coffee on the porch. I did a limited run this year and when they’re gone, they’re gone.. ☕️🍁


.
Everyone in my Gale Gang private Facebook group got early access yesterday so they could have first dibs. And if you ordered a fall box, you got one early, too! 🎃 Because what good is a gang without perks? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Get early access to products and classes, as well as a fun virtual space to hang out and see lots of behind the scenes lettering action? We kickoff October 15th

Order here and let’s have coffee together:

Creating together builds bonds

Creating together builds bonds

Taking time to make connections with lifelong friends matters. Laughing is good medicine. Empowered women empower other women. Creating together builds bonds.

And inviting y’all into my home makes my heart happy. It’s where I’m truly at home 💗

Travel to my Kitchen Island

This week is nuts!! But I snapped a quick pic of my kitchen island this morning...a turquoise travel theme kind of came together without much planning!

My Target Dollar Spot gnome, vintage globes, a tiny car that was my Daddy’s, and a postcard from 1966 to my husband from one of the nuns at the hospital where he’d just had his tonsils removed!
