As a Martha Pullen licensed sewing teacher I love to learn new sewing techniques and I equally enjoy teaching sewing techniques to others.  You can also find me teaching Bernina Customer Courses at my local Bernina dealer.  In addition, I demonstrate Stampin' Up products.  I am a servant of the Lord of Lords and King of Kings, wife of one, mom of two, and grandma of five.  Welcome to my sewing and crafting studio!

A New Endeavor

Here's a sampling of but a few of the coupons I've cut in the past few days.  Extreme Couponing on TLC fascinates me and I must delve into the world of coupon obsession.  Okay, mine won't be an obsession, but it is really cool to get items for free or for a drastically reduced cost.  I don't aspire to even come anywhere near the savings of the coupon collecting elite on TLC's Wednesday night show, but I did use 20 coupons when I purchased my groceries this morning.

All these coupons (and the fact that they fell out of the paper clip that secured them while I was shopping, and I had to re-collect them all from the Commissary floor) tells me I must come up with some kind of tote for them.  Which leads me to sewing - but of course, doesn't everything lead to sewing?!  Enter the May/June 2011 issue of Creative Machine Embroidery magazine.

Ta-Da!  My next sewing project.  I already have the fabric selected from my stash and I'm ready to go.  I must take care of some personal family business for the next few days, but hopefully I will have my new coupon clutch ready for next week's grocery shopping trip.

Do you clip coupons?  If so, in what do you carry your coupons?
