Playing with homespun :)


Well I’m sure like most this time a year, its been super busy. Lots of shopping and wrapping, and I really dislike wrapping!!
So I took a break from wrapping presents and decided to play. I have lots of clothespins and lots of old Christmas bulbs, so I started wrapping. I enjoyed this wrapping much more than the presents :)

If you are interested in purchasing either set, you can get more info on my Facebook page

Well enjoy your night, looks like its back to the presents!

A little accomplished :)

Well I did manage to finish a doll, some salt dough ornies and some grubby candles :)We've been spending alot of time outside, with the weather in the 80's, I cant seem to stay indoors. I did get some flowers planted and a few dips in the pool. The pool is 85 degrees though, DH says its bath water LOL
So, here is my Annie, candles and ornies, I will be offering them on my selling blog this afternoon. I've got another cheer daughter and cheer camp coming, so Mama needs to make some money! :) If anyone is looking for some cute/prim address labels or business cards, let me know! I have lots of samples :)

Cleaning out my stash...

I have been trying to sift through things that I haven't touch in ages, so I have a stack of sewing/wood patterns all intact to offer. They are full patterns, nothing cut, I am asking $4.00 a pattern (I paid anywhere from $8.00 to $11.00) Shipping will depend on how many patterns you want and where they will be shipped. (US only please) I can ship First Class or Priority Mail.
If you are interested, email me @ with "pattern" in the subject line and I will reply with a list of patterns I have available.

They are great patterns and it's a shame to have them just sit around and not be turned into something wonderful.

Fun Little Things

I've been having some fun making these cell phone cozys and travel tissue holders.
I have a few more to finish and then I plan on starting some dollies. I miss them, I took a slight break from doll making but that break is over and I can't wait to get started.

I plan on listing the cozys and tissue holders individually on my selling blog today.

Gotta run!

My First Apron :) and some pastel hang tags

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter with family & friends.
I made a wonderful dinner and enjoyed the day.
After I colored the Easter eggs Saturday, I thought there must be something I can use the rest of the dye for. Well I decided to soak some mini hang tags in the dye and WOW, I cant beleive how pretty these tags turned out!

I finally got around to completing this apron, it was my first attempt and I love it!
I was alittle nervous at first but it turned out to be easier than I thought and hope to make more.

I have also started a new blog, a selling blog where I can offer my handmade items. Click on the link to go there, I am still in the process of adding all my labels and business cards I have to offer as well as some handmade goodies. Please stop by, maybe even become a follower.

Until Next Time...
