I’m Back…


I’ve been MIA lately but I am back and ready to get busy!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We had a great time with family & friends but I am looking forward to a new year!

I have been working on Valentine items and do have a few things listed on Ebay.
I finished this Valentine Annie today and have a few more in the works.
My birthday is tomorrow, the big 39! My baby sister reminded me today that I will be 40 next year! Thanks Sis!!
I will be busy over the next few days, Taylor has another Dr appt. with the orthopedic Dr tomorrow, hopefully no MRI is needed. Oh, you probably don't know what happened to her! Well, this is quite a story. Taylor, Tori & Taylor’s friend Jessica decided to slide down the basement stairs in a laundry basket. Well Taylor tried to stop herself half way down and flipped out of the basket, dislocating her elbow!! Yeah! Not fun I assure you. Nothing broke but no weight bearing, at least until tomorrow. That  broke her heart since she is a cheerleader and just started Competitive Cheer a week before this happened. Phew! KIDS! A few more grey hairs to add to my collection!
So in case I don't get to blog before then, I want to wish you all a safe and  Happy New Year!!!

Until Next Time…

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I spent 2 days cooking then stuffed myself silly. It was a great day!

While decorating the tree I found some cute Christmas cards that we received last year (since I never throw anything away) and decided to scan them. I think I will make some gift tags with them and thought maybe some of you may want to use them as well.

I'm not sure about copyright infringing when it comes to sharing this kind of stuff, so I will ask you to only use them for personal use.
If anyone has more info in regards to this type of sharing, I would love to hear from you. I don't want to get into any trouble.

Just click on the image to get full view and right click and save to your computer. If I hear any info about sharing these that might get me in any hot water, I will immediately remove this post.

Candy Cane Annie

I just added this little Annie to my website. I cant afford to list too much on Ebay when I'm not getting any sales. It puts me in the worst mood, makes me question my work. BUT, I keep at it, probably because I have so much material and such that I just have to put it to use, even if the finished product ends up in a box! :( LOL

Hang Tags

I was busy this morning creating some holiday hang tags with my PSP.
I love the graphics (Trina Clark Designs/Digi Scrap Kits).
Now I have to print/cut & add hangers to them,
Im thinking I may make a couple sets and list them on Ebay and Etsy.
But first I have some dollies to sew, so I can plop on the couch
and watch 17 Again while I STuFF STuFF STuFF!
If you are interested in a set of these cute tags
before I get them listed, just drop me a line.
Im thinking I will make 2 of each tag for a set of 12 tags for $3.50.

A day with the squirrels!

Rob & I went on a bike ride today to a nearby park. We stopped and bought a bag of peanuts to feed the squirrels. I got lots of pics and a few videos of the little critters. Here are a few.
