Stocking Stuffers!

I just added these fun cup cozy/ scarf pin sets to the shop :)
Are they not the cutest?

I'm thankful to my clever customer
that asked me about making these for her a while back!
When I was finished with the artwork
by the incredible Michelle Palmer,
I had to keep going,
so I decided to make some pins 
out of wool felt.

I have to admit,
I'm a bit obsessed with this gingerbread man.

Sometimes things just turn out even cuter
than I imagined.
I'm in love.......

As promised....
Here are the new bags and gift sets 
featuring Michelle Palmer's crazy talents.
The cats are just Purrr-fection!
When I stumbled across this adorable fabric
by Robert Kaufman that is out of print,
I knew I had to snag it.
I've looked high and low to find more
but so far, no luck.

I asked Cherise to make the matching fob
and she also made this adorable frogger!
It's so cute it almost takes the pain
out of froggin' out your mistakes :)
I'm just in love with the hand made lampwork beads.

There is only 1 bag left from yesterday's listings.
So if you are interested in one of these,
jump over to the shop and grab it :)

Tis the Season

I just listed all these treasures in my shop.
Whenever I list bags with Michelle Palmer's
Ah-mazing artwork,
they tend to sell out the same day.
I just want to keep them all!

I've decided to add custom scissor fobs
made by my very talented friend Cherise Smith.
Now I want to keep them even MORE!!! 
Serious cuteness!
I know I added lots of photos today,
but I just can't help myself.
I just have to share :) 

Stop by tomorrow for some more
"Purr-fection" by Michelle :)

This mouse is just too cute!
If it doesn't sell today,
I may just have to keep this one myself :)

Everything from Angels to Wild Kratts

Stocking Angels I by The Cricket Collection
I finished up this darling little angel a few nights ago.
Of course I changed the colors :)
Those french knot curls just remind me of my 
granddaughter Sofie.
How could I resist?

I also made 9 Creature Power Vests
for my oldest grandsons' birthday party.
He's a HUGE fan of the Wild Kratts.
Since there aren't any ready made vests available
his Mommy asked me to do it.
There are plenty of great tutorials online to make your own.
The kids were big fans!

Here are the "Kratt Brothers" aka "Torres Brothers" :)
They wore them every day since the party.
I also got the sweetest email from another Mom that her son
wore his to church, school and even slept in his.
I'd say that was a worthwhile project.
Makes my heart happy!

A lot to be thankful for!

Hard to believe it's already November!
It's a time to think about all the blessings in our lives.
There is so much to be thankful for.
I am especially thankful for my November boys/men.
My firstborn, Brandon was born Nov 7, 1980.
Brandon's firstborn, Elijah was born Nov 3, 2003.
My daughter's firstborn, David was born Nov 22, 2007. (on Thanksgiving :)

That's a lot of happy to fit into one month !

I thought I'd share my progress on the DMC "Red Crockery" kit.
I'm almost done.
Just the finishing touches
and then I can add it to the stack of projects 
waiting to be finished/framed at some later date :)

Today I'm working on Christmas items for the shop.
These little felt owls are going to get added
later in the week.
The larger owl is a pin  
and the smaller owls are necklaces.

Here's a peek at another gift set in progress.
I'm loving the scissor fob that was made to match
by my friend Cherise!

So what are you thankful for today?
