A RECAP of Fourth Semester of Handmade U!

Fourth Semester RECAP!!

Our Fourth Semester began at the Hilton Garden Inn on Thursday night for our Welcome Dinner!  The space is amazing with lots of natural light and windows to open!

Lots of goodies to welcome the gals!

Name Tags were School Pennants and the stars represented each semester the ladies attended of Handmade U.  Shelley has attended all Four so far :)

The Students got to know each other over dinner, followed by Nothing Bundt Cakes :)  YUM!

After Dinner we all shopped at Vendor Night!  Lots of fun things!

Once we all shopped til we dropped we exchanged our swaps!  We had an ephemera swap, a handmade envelope swap and a one on one vintage box full of ephemera.  WOW did we have some fun looking at all the amazing boxes!

Julie got this amazing Cream Crackers tin from Jennifer.  Very cool!

Each gal picked a color theme that her partner used to fill up the box!  Michelle put together the above RED vintage jewelry box full of goodies for Laurel.

This Yellow Tin was Fabulous put together by Mollie!

A Green Box

This Red little box full of Red and Turquoise items was put together lovingly by Julie for Jennifer.

Kadee put together these AMAZING packets of ephemera for all us in the swap!  We were so sad she had to cancel at the last minute!  But hope to see her at another semester soon!

Michelle's ephemera swaps!  She's got a wonder stash of good stuff!!


More envelopes!!  WASHI TAPE!

More to come soon!!!



  1. That is the most perfect Bundt cake I have ever seen. This event looks like so much fun. All of the boxes and crafts look amazing. I hope to someday join for a semester and enjoy handmade u.
