I am still full from the feast this afternoon but I had to go back for at least one more piece of pumpkin pie! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Happy Holidays!

The calm before the holiday storm....

Related Posts Widget for Blogs by LinkWithinI can't wait for Thanksgiving & Xmas, I have to say I love the holiday season and can't wait for the pig outs & presents! Haven't gotten around to putting up Xmas decorations or the Tree but hopefully soon, maybe this weekend! I have managed to get about 70% of my holiday shopping done & mostly online! Do you do more holiday shopping online or in stores? Everyone says "Oh, I like the atmosphere & decorations, puts me in the holiday mood to shop the stores," personally there's something about that 20 person long line in an overly warm Kohl's that takes the cheer right out of it for me :D! I love online shopping!

 Anyhow, I'll be baking it up tomorrow making Pumkpin Bread (Libby's) & Lemon Thyme Bread for Thanksgiving and working on Owl Iphone Cozies to fill the orders that are piling up! (Seriously, that many phone cozies?!) It's so difficult being a one woman show during the holidays, I need some little elves! My arm hurts, for real.

I wish I could get this Turkish Crafty Blogger over here to lend a helping hand! Here's her version of my owl iphone cozies! (And this isn't a diss for copying my work, I actually think its fun & flattering, and really who cares?). Makes me wonder if I shouldn't start selling patterns? I miss coming up with new designs all the time - have sooo many cute things in mind that I never have time for or I make prototypes and they never make it in the shop. Might be a good way for me to get my creative juices flowing again! 

Any thoughts out there? Would you be interested in patterns if I started making them? Would you prefer embroidery sheets (a page of fun & random designs) or full projects (softies, cozies, pins, etc.)?  I've been seriously considering it lately!

Who Needs Sleep?

Here's a few workspace photos, I'm more functional than well designed fancy but I'll get there one day!
I got featured on the front page of Etsy! It had been a while so it was super fun to see!
Here's a rather bad photo of my 'Big Tree' in a storefront window!
I've been so busy! It feels like I've been sleeping in shifts for the past month!

November is so busy!

Related Posts Widget for Blogs by LinkWithinWell now, it has been a super busy Holiday Season so far! I've been steadily trying to add a few new items here & there to the shop, but have been super busy with orders to shops who are busy restocking for the season! I'm doing a small shop update tomorrow and will try to post some new goodies throughout this week!

I've barely started my Xmas shopping! I feel like I haven't left the studio in a month (or two)! How's your holiday season going so far? Done any Xmas shopping?? 

Here's a look at some new goodies & what I've been up to! (I apologize for the poor photos, my studio has been a disaster with no free spot to shoot) ha! 

I made a Big Plush Xmas Tree! This is first large plush anything I've made - I think it turned out pretty cute! It looks even cuter in person (terrible photo, I have the worst light in my house!). It was made for a store window in my hometown, it stands about 4 foot tall. I was going for kind of a modern pennsylvania dutch kinda motif! If you're local you can view the tree at PONshop in Fredericksburg, VA     

NEW! Lucky Fat Kitty Cat Brooches & Plush! I'll be posting a few felt kitty brooches & i heart you brooches in the shop tomorrow!
