My shops are BOTH open, and I am THRILLED!!!! YAH!!!

I had an order this week for some of my Valentine Chunky Crayons, individually wrapped for a classroom. And I realized it may be wise to list these regularly--classroom favors! Beats moms having to buy a mold, buy bags, buy shredded paper or pretty ribbons, pay full price for enough crayons, then spend an eternity trying to unwrap all those crayons! whew! Someone else can do it--namely, ME! (I also have two helpers--Monster and Bug love to help--as long as their attention spans last!)

I guess it was a wise choice, as I've already had a bite! YAH!

So I am back--whew! Below are links to my shop!

Tow Truck Cozy Blanket

This fall I sold a bunch of Tow Truck Onesies. And one of them went to a new mom. She called me last week, wanting a blanket to match. It sort of does--only I used a different fabric for the tow part--cause the blanket is the original tow fabric, and it would get lost in all that red if I used the same color. And she wanted a red blanket. Monster is quite in awe at this blanket. He loves him some tow trucks--especially a certain one named Tow Mater. Bet anyone with a 3 yr old son is absolutely NOT amazed at this! ;) Anyway, this Tow Truck Cozy Blanket is now listed for sale in my etsy shop.

More Owls

Here are the baby bibs I made with various owl appliques I had (while playing and trying to find the right combo for my customer). I love the colors. Playing is so much fun!

Owl shirts!

Can it be that I'm writing a second posting in a month--AND including pics? ;) I AM! Here is a sweet pair of big sister/little sister shirts! My kids had a ball discussing what was similar and what was different in each shirt. (The impromptu learning that comes with homeschooling!) I love these little owls--and I am just realizing I have four owl bibs I did not photo....hmmm....must do so later.

I must be feeling more in the swing of things--seeing as I grabbed the camera and snuck outside to take pictures. I've been busy, busy sewing, but no pictures as of late. Of course, when it is 20 degrees outside, it makes wanting to be outside an issue! Today is supposed to be mid-40's! Yesterday got into the 50's--and I threw open my windows for some fresh air!

I am busy working on tax info, re-arranging my sewing room (I bought an AWESOME buffet to hide stuff in, cut fabric on top, and to unify the area where I had a treadle sewing machine and a drop leaf table), and re-arranging my whole house. Lots going on at once! And oh, lots of de-cluttering! It feels great!
