I have them! Lots of them! I always have excuses because they.......well......they excuse me!
I had deactivated my Etsy shop items in the middle of June and didn't start back up until the beginning of vacay to myself. The beginning of August brought a surge in Teacher gifts so here are a few pictures of what I've been doing!
I have 5 more of these to do and ship out on Monday. I've already done 7 of them and shipped them out. Good thing I love making these!
I've also cut out another doll but this one is made of wood. 
I have to wire her arms and dowel her legs. She'll have a very pretty dress (for a witch anyway!) on her and  a broom with her little black kitty. 
I've got 2 swaps to finish this week.
I've got an order for 11.....11 of my seasonal Garlands I'm working on now!
I just announced my FB Mystery Winner this morning so check it out (badge on sidebar).
 I'll have a Tutorial up in a few days to show you how I make a Blue Jean Pocketfull!
My Blog GIVEAWAY is still on until Sept. 7th so sign up while you can on the post below this one. OR, find the picture of my Fall Garland on my Blog's right sidebar. Visit the other Giveaways while you're there!
SEE? I have excuses!
Thanks for my followers, old and new! I appreciate your support in Blog Land!
Stay Tuned!

I know most people gripe when we (retail) start to show off our 'seasonal' goodies before it's even time but, hey, it's just how we do things! 
I changed a few things on my Seasonal Halloween Garland. 
I added some deeper oranges and a Candy corn with one more star. Even added a
cute digital tag from Deena @
What started out as a nice 48" Garland has turned into an even nicer 65" Garland.
 I have this already in my Etsy shop as a MADE TO ORDER ITEM.
I don't remember where the pattern came from as I've been putting this one together for quite a while.
I'd like to offer one up for my Fall Giveaway! I'm busy cutting out extra pieces since they're popular so I might as well make an extra one for someone lucky enough to be chosen by Random.Org! (The fabric strips in between will be varied from the photo).
Simple rules will make this obtainable!
1. Be a follower; new followers are always welcome!
2. Leave me a comment!
Let me know you've done this in one comment!
This is opened to US Citizens and Canadian Friends.
I'll announce a winner on September 7th!
Don't forget about my FB Mystery Giveaway!
Thanks for playing along with me!
Stay Tuned!

Oh, but I've been so neglectful of my blogging lately. Life gets in the way and I've had a bit of the 'lazies'. School is starting in a few more weeks and the kids and I have been doing our school shopping. Happy to say that's all done and behind us except for what the school/teachers will need for their classes.
My table is FULL of many of my UFO's (Unfinished Objects)! 
I HATE it when I do this, however, it's just a part of me that comes with my creativity. I don't have much time to just sit and dote on one particular item. My attention gets a bit messed up when I have to attend to the daily necessities and the end production is a conglomerate of unfinished busy-ness!
My hubby is finally coming home to stay....YAY!! We finally got a project here in Florida and so we don't have to pretend to be married anymore!! It's been a long ! 1 1/2 years with him coming in every 2-3 weeks for only a few days. Hoping to not ever do that again!
Meanwhile, I've 2 other little girls SCREAMING for attention!
 This pattern if from Susan Dean of ThreadBare Primitives. They are so ugly, they are cute!!
Witch hats for the Jacks and a grubby Homespun dress for the little girls with their black hair and bows! So FUN!
I've got a Face Book Mystery Giveaway going on right now if you want to hop on over there and leave a comment.
Look for this picture!
Hope you can stop by!
The kids will go back to school and I might get a life so.....
Stay tuned!
