If you are in Nappanee this weekend..........

Come visit me at the festival! I will be in booth R071 (in the red area, between the gazebo and the barn, 2nd row from the gazebo and 2nd from the end). Just look for my tote bags and scrapped creations. Hopefully we will have great weather. This festival is one of the best arts and crafts festivals in the US, it is HUGE and there are lots of faboo vendors. You are sure to find something for everybody on your shopping list.
Here is a picture of one of the tote bags I machine embroidered for a wedding party-

How do you like it? I will be making more machine embroidered items soon. I will be listing some things on etsy too, I'll keep you posted. Hope you all have a fabulous week! Hope to see you at the festival!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
