Mid-January Greetings!

Well, here we are in the middle of January and I'm just now posting. One could look at me and think I've been lazy....but I haven't been. I'm having another busy month! So glad I took a few weeks off around Christmas. I'm still having a hard time getting my head back into the game. I've not created anything new except for these as I've had my hands full with orders. Hoping to finish these today with added buttons and ribbons.
I helped a friend out with her daughter's wedding last week. She had some old doors that needed to be painted and distressed. They had a beautiful outdoor wedding and she propped the doors onto trees.
 There were 2 of these and she had them propped against 2 trees that were side by side to make it look as if you were coming 'in' to the seating area.
 This one was also propped against a tree for decoration. The place was wooded and done up so lovely. Lights were in the trees and the 'wedding party' was gorgeous!
I've been working on a large order of chalkboard signs.
Just some 1x4s cut into 12" pieces with rounded-over edges and a wire for hanging. Similar to this but with out the apple or ribbon.
I'll be finishing up all 25 of those today and shipping them off to a company for their individual office signs.
These guys were left-over from Christmas. I will eventually finish them up and get them off of my table so I can have room to put more items on there that require finishing touches. SIGH.
 She was supposed to be a little Valentine Raggedy but she's still sitting nekkid in my green tub. If I can get this week behind me I might find time time to clothe her!
 Orders for these are starting to come in. Really pretty to put/keep up anytime and so fun to make!
I was gong through my inventory and discovered I had this. Didn't have any photos taken so I listed it back in my Etsy shop.
That's my motto for our home!
Hoping your New Year has started off on a positive note. We're pretty cold here in Florida. I'm actually enjoying the cooler temps as it's keeping the dreaded 'hot flashes' at bay.
Easter is around the corner. Coming early at the end of March. I need to have a Giveaway so stay tuned in!

You have been way more busy than me!! It IS hard to get back into the swing after the holidays for me too. But I just ordered two new to me embroidery stitch books for inspiration so I'll jump back on the stitching path pretty quick.

Looks like you have been busy! I agree it is hard to get back into the swing of things, but looks like you are doing good. :)

The doors are so awesome. Great work you did. I love the Valentine's "nekkid" doll, lol. I am sure she will be darling all clothed :)
