I hope everyone enjoys a nice day off
and maybe some time with family and yummy food.
I feel so lucky to have the lovely people I have around me.
I will definitely be enjoying a completely relaxed day.
Love you all,
These new little pocket mirrors are up in my shop - among a few other new things. I'm hoping things will slow down so I'll be able to sew a bit more and get a few more things in the shop - new tote, new pouches, new Needlings - lots of stuff on the go. I'm excited for January when I'll have a bit more Needlings time.
December has been a busy month...
as I'm sure it has been for a lot of people!
I'm using today to wrap presents and get ready for Christmas completely since I will be at work all day tomorrow.
I hope everyone is doing lots of fun holiday stuff and enjoying some time off if you have it.
The year is almost over...see you in the next one!
I hope to see you more often than it has been.
These are my new note cards featuring my product photography printed by moo.com!
I thought they needed a little home so I made a felt envelope to hold the little set of 4 cards and envelopes. It's fun trying out new things. I'm still working on a few more holiday-y items so look out for those if you are so inclined.
I spent today doing a little Christmas shopping for my mom...I seem to always start with her because she's just the easiest. I love shopping for her. On the off chance she reads this I won't say what I got but I will say that I think she'll like all of it. My dad and brother always require serious spying, prying, and list-making. Thankfully, I am a cool-headed late shopper so I still have some time!
Speaking of holiday shopping...
I'm officially letting you all know that I have free shipping worldwide in my shop until December 1st! No excuses to empty out those favourites now. (wink wink)
I hope everyone is enjoying the starting signs (or full on pleasant/unpleasant effects) of winter coming.
If you hate winter...don't fret - it always goes away eventually. And if you love it...enjoy it until it is over and then don't fret - it always comes back again.
I've had a busy beginning of November getting ready and finally actually doing MacFair at the Museum of Art the past few days.
It was an overall pleasant first show for me and I was lucky enough to have my mom there the whole time.
This photo is of my set up before the show started and only experienced a little shifting and replacing of items over the span of the three day show. Definitely happy with how it turned out!
It was busier than I thought it would be and there really were no disasters or even almost disasters and I am now feeling ready to agree to more shows...which is exciting!
It was super nice to be able to talk to a few people who are really right there with me in a lot of ways. I'm really too much of a homebody most of the time so I really liked meeting some really sweet people.
Oh, and tomorrow is my birthday! Not a bad November so far.
In the middle of all my tagging and pricing prep for MacFair Thursday, Friday, and Saturday...I decided to make a tiny owl.
Added a little ring and ribbon and I think he makes the perfect little owly necklace!
I hope everyone's November is starting out as pleasant as mine has been.
Busy with work but definitely good.
I'll be spending the next couple of days frantically working to prepare for my show but I hope to see you all following the weekend with some good words (and photos) from my first big show!
It's Saturday night and I've finished another new doll!
My weekend is never much of a break in the week since I work at 7am both Saturday and Sunday so my work week soldiers on as usual.
It was quite a rainy day today but I managed to get a few photos taken between sun showers which made me quite happy.
I wish it were snowy so she could have a wintery background to suit her rosy red cheeks but these will do for now.
Well, here she is all finished up! And she's up in the shop too.
My plan is to get a few done to add a few punches of pattern to my table at MacFair!
First one down, polka dots!
I've been working on another one that's a little more Christmas-y looking. Red and white to be exact. With some vintage floral print legs. It's fun to work with patterned fabric every once in awhile on things other than bags.
Happy last weekend of October! I always miss October when it's over. But November is my birth month so the longing doesn't last too long!
I finally finished a big batch of pouches I've been working on and they're now up in my shop!
My fingers are quite glad that the ordeal is over but I didn't give them much of a break to be honest:
I've spent the past little bit finishing up that new doll that I'll be showing off very soon.
Can you believe how hard I'm working?
Talk soon and thanks for checking back with me; as always.
Just started working on this new doll last night while watching Pushing Daisies (I love that show).
I hope to get a few dolls (my felt plush with fabric legs) finished before MacFair...among a few other things!
Back to work! Hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday!
P.S. There will be a new batch of snap pouches in the shop very very soon!
Remember when I started this? Me neither. June, I believe.
I absolutely love knittydirtygirl's yarn! http://knittydirtygirl.etsy.com
Now I have an excellently green scarf to go with my purple jacket.
