TerifiCreations started at the dining room table in Americus, Georgia during my first year as a volunteer at Habitat for Humanity. Having easy access to paper, coloring pencils, a few well chosen stencils, a bit of a creative bent and a desire to give unique birthday cards and not a lot of cash made this endeavor a whoooole lot of fun. I’d always put “TerifiCreations” on the back of the cards, just like labeling a quilt. I still make cards occasionally these days, quilted for sure as they are a creative outlet in the midst of other business related to the creative side of what I do.
In 2006 I thought I’d invent tote bags, just like every other tote bag inventor. This took a bit of work and I had a bit of a following at a shop in NH. I still make bespoke totes however they’re for me carry around as they’re labor intensive between the quilting and the on the fly design.
So in celebration of this anniversary I’m going to have a bit of a give away. I know I’m going to make a narwhal from one of the Funky Friends Factory patterns (I’ve got the pattern, now just need some time to stitch!), and some fabric (because who doesn’t love fabric. I’m working on a couple of other things to give as well. Because of my location and shipping costs, the giveaways are limited to the United States. For my international friends I’ll offer either a guest blog post or feature you as a quilter here on TerifiCreations.
THIS JUST IN! I’m giving away an Oliso Mini-Pro Iron! Check out this video with Michele Muska and Bill Locke. Thanks Oliso! This iron has all the necessary convenient features, adjustable heat, easy steam button, swivel cord, and a silicone base for travel and storage.
I’m also giving away a fat quarter tower of Jessica VanDenburg’s new line Juniper by Windham. See image below. What I love about this line are the fresh colors, clean vibe and the whimsy with which Jessica designs the lines. These will, without a doubt, make beautiful totes. That reminds me, I need to order some hardware from her.
PS I’m adding a Quilters Select Rotary Cutter to the giveaway list!
PS Oh look! I’m Batt Scooters!
For my international friends I’m going to interview you and feature you, and your quilts on the blog!

Who were you with, what did you have, was this a special event, were you on an amazing trip? Was there candle light?
