This is Melda Dean....Happy Birthday! Love You!


This is Melda Dean. For those of you who don't know Melda....well she means the world to me! She has worked for me for about 3 1/2 years and has become my best friend, and chearleader (other than my husband of course) She has been my children's (we'll call it nanny) REALLY! She has changed my childrens hinders, cleaned up there messes, lied for them so they wouldn't get in trouble. She has been my mother figure that I have so needed in my life. I am so thankful for her loving support and encouraging words over the years. I couldn't have made it through these last years without her! So I call her my side kick because she says she's to young to be my mother and actually she is right. Today Melda is 50 doesn't she look great! So here's to you Melda Dean! I love you! Thank you for some great years!

We had a girls day. Myself, Melda and our other best friend Tiffany (the tiny seamstress) here are some great pictures of our day in Pocatello!

One Door Closes Another Will Open!

That's a wrap! The Quilt Shoppe in Idaho Falls, Idaho is closed! Sad face, Happy Face! Just a quick thank you to all of you who have been a fan and have supported me! I really love you.

I am so excited for the future of Kati Cupcake! I feel like I've just been given wings! Really, I've been tied down (slave) what ever you want to call if for far to long! My children and I are going to have a fun filled summer. (Moab Utah is first on the list) The first week of July)! yeah!! My sister just moved down there, her husband is working for Moab tour company! You know what I'm going to be doing. Hiking, Hummer Rides, swimming, playing. I will share when I get home!

My house is in need of some major organization, which I will be sharing fun tips and projects as I find them and create them! I've always wanted to be a good cook. Yes I do know how to cook, but there is a differnce in cooking and cooking! My husband is much better at cooking than I am. The last few years he's been doing 90% of the cooking and 100% of the grocery shopping. I will attempt to take over the cooking and shopping. So I will be sharing some yummy recipes, maybe some this didn't work tips, I'm sure not everything will work out exactly as planned and I will share! I'm so excited. I hope you will hang out with me and share your thoughts as I enjoy my children, life and Kati Cupcake designing!

The Quilt Shoppes Final Days!

We are drawing nearer and nearer the The Quilt Shoppes final day! It feels kind of weird closing doors that have literally ruled my life for many years! I am excited about the extra time I will have for my children, for designing, for my husband, etc. I find myself sad a little, it must be all the great people I've met over the years! You really have made it good! You know who you are! Thank you for your friendships and support. (We really haven't told many people) shhh it's a secret! That we might be relocating to Washington State for a job transfer (it's still not totally for sure) which means I will have pull up the roots and start over. It's a little scary! I am excited about the adventure we will have finding new fun places to visit, new family traditions etc. But I won't be running into near as many of you there as I would here! Well that's enough sappy stuff. We have lots of great sales going on! Come by and say hello or goodbye! Those of you who didn't know I have a store (in Idaho Falls, Idaho), I will still be doing kati cupcake, I will still have my blog, I will still have my website and will still be designing no matter where I end up! So please don't stop following me! You guys are great. Thanks for listening to me ramble!

I am certainly not a blogger pro! As you can see my header is not centered and I've been trying everything I can think of to get it centered. I've been on the blogger help forums and help center. I really stink, although I did figure out how to get my background page up! yeah!!
So you blogger pros out there, help!

Thanks a bunch!

My Small Little World.........

Sometimes I forget that there is a whole additional world out there besides Rigby and Idaho Falls. Those of you just finding my blog, I have a quilt shop in Idaho Falls that I am closing. My website with all my original patterns and fabric will stay up and running. I will be adding new items as they are designed. Everyone is so sad and I'm so sorry. This is such an exciting time for me and my family I kind of feel guilty because everyone is so sad. Don't be sad! I'm sure there are many new quilt shops heading our way! But please come in and say good bye!

Thank you!

Amy Hamberlin

Bitter Sweet.......

After almost 4 1/2 years owning The Quilt Shoppe, my husband and I have decided it's time to close up shop. We are going to miss all of you so much. I will still be blogging, probably more than ever and designing fabric and patterns, so please check back. I've been playing with the idea of fabric parties (no guarantee's) but check back you never know!

Thank you all for your support and love we have enjoyed over the years.

We will have most of our displays on sale, I will be bringing displays and antiques from home, there will be something new (or old) everyday! Please come in and say goodbye!

Everything in the shop is 20% off!
