Finished red and black crocodile stitch ladies bag with inner pocket and double-sewn inner lining. Oh, am I so proud of this accomplishment. And just in time for winter accessories or that perfect gift for that special someone for Christmas! Available at Anna's Custom Crochet

Well, I have been away for some time, because I have been very busy trying to get my Anna's Custom Crochet up and running. I opened a store on if you would like to check it out or just share it around and spread the word.
Christmas is just around the corner and you will find a variety of items from baby booties to ladies fingerless gloves, boot cuffs, and gorgeous bags.
Don't let Christmas sneak up on you!

I would like to personally invite you to Youth Festival Summer Expo 2010! (-:

Youth Festival Summer Expo 2010 has a bunch of moving energetic parts over 2 days that will thrill the whole family!

The concert is full of very unique artists from around the world. Check out the line-up The auto and motorcycle show will be awesome with all classes of vehicles participating thanks to the Phil Long Dealership Group And the S.K.Y. Streetball Syndicate basketball competition will involve both a “Kids Clinic” and an “All-Star Event”. Both will definitely be a huge hit!

Come to Colorado and stay at the Colorado Springs Marriott Hotel

All autos, trucks and motorcycles, and vendors and exhibitors are welcome! The applications, Paypal account and more info can be found on the new Youth Festival Summer Expo 2010 website

Youth Festival Summer Expo 2010 tickets are $40 in advance (for 2 days) or $25 at the door. Military and seniors are $20. And all kids 12 years old and under are free! Price includes the concert, the auto/bike show and the basketball competition with S.K.Y. Streetball Syndicate. Tickets go on sale at all Independent Records and Videos June 8st!

The Dale House Project, and all contributions to Youth Festival Summer Expo 2010 are tax deductible. My personal goal is to help remove the ugly term, “at-risk youth” from Colorado Springs forever!
