Handmade gifts for the Holidays & Birthday.....

Here are some gifts the kids and I have been working on... we made homemade Banana breads for all of our grandparents (the kids great grandparents) and I made this cute set for my nephew who just turned *3* I think it came out sooo cute! Fun and easy to make as well.. no pattern just kind of went along as I was making it. The crayon roll holds 8 large washable crayons and some scrap papers! Fun stuff! I hope he likes it! I have a few more things to make so off I go......

Have a great day!

A book signing & some gingerbread....

The kids and I stopped Friday night at the local book store for a special book signing. A really good customer of mine(has been since I opened my business over 4 years ago) & friend wrote a really sweet childrens book about an experience in her life. I am so proud of her & the book is sooo cute! If you are local head down to Apple Blossom books and pick up a copy! 10% goes to charity.

Here is Jen & The kids! :)

The kids and I also made their very first gingerbread house (we cheated and bought a kit) They still had fun... although Jada had a little cold this weekend and was totally not her noraml creative self! It turned out very cute & they are oh so proud of it!

It is chilly cold today and I have a few appointments.. I am also a little sad my sweet lil' christmas flag on the mailbox blew away last night! (I bought it in New jersey when my Grandma was sick) Anyhow.. I have lots to do today!

Have a warm and cozy day.. if you can!

Pleated purses awaiting vintage buttons...

is what I am working on today! I just finished up this batch and I have quite a few more to sew. These 4 are awaiting their vintage buttons to be hand sewn on. (I will get to that later)

I love this batch.. alot of vintage wools, and corduroy some denim... oh so lovely and winterish! :)

I have some errands to run and off to the dentist.. I have a tooth that is bothering me, not to mention I have to have my wisdom teeth out!!! (at 33 that is CRAZY I tell you.. I am cutting one now so I am hoping that is what is bothering me and not something else!) wish me luck!

P.S. Some of the pleated purses I am working on will go to the shop, some to the craftacular and a few set aside for Anthology! Yay!

Have a good day!
