About Me

 My name is Lisa, I am a stay at home mom living in the suburbs of Calgary Alberta.  My three sweet children are Ben, Anna, and Sam – hence the inspiration for the name of my blog!  I absolutely love anything crafty.  I am a self taught seamstress, you will see several items on my blog that I have created and are sold on my ETSY shop 

I also love to write.   I strive to make posts on my blog meaningful and amusing.  If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to e-mail me:

This blog was started as a way to show off my creative little projects, I was quite sure that my Facebook friends were getting tired of seeing pictures of all of my crafts.  It has turned into something much more, I have discovered an entire blogging community that I love to interact with (thank you blogging friends!)  Considering we move so often, it seems to be one of the constants in my life.

What can you find on Sweet Benanna & Sam?

Crafty Things – here you can find all of my crafty tutorials plus many kids activities

Sewing Tutorials – I like to think of my blog as primarily a sewing blog with the occasional craft or recipe thrown in.  Under sewing tutorials you can find many of my original patterns, mostly for children, as well as full tutorials with photo instructions.

Opportunities & Advertising – Under this section you can find my media kit as well as current opportunities.  At the moment I would like to add a pattern review feature to my blog and I am looking for sewing patterns to review.

Typically I post craft or sewing tutorials on Mondays, something for the children on Wednesdays (such as learning activities, home made games, or crafts) and on Fridays you can find my Sweet Treats & Swanky Stuff Link Party.

I hope you enjoy my blog, hopefully you find it entertaining and useful!  Thank you for stopping by.

God Bless!

Lisa K
