A "Breather"!

 I need a few days; a break; a breather as we call it down here. I've been working my tail end off completing orders and new designs since the first of August. I'm exhausted and sleep deprived.....and I just put the last 3 packages in the mail today. HALLELUJAH!!! Now, don't get me wrong. I like to sell my items which is the whole idea with the Etsy thing, ya know. I just like to keep my Hobby what it is. AND, I refuse to call it work.....however close it comes to the actual word itself!
 Here are some of my goodies I've been working, uh, 'hobby-ing' on!
Something a customer asked for. Brand new and my own design....4th of JULY GARLAND.
It's got a flag, an apple pie, a decoupaged star, a bat and baseball, and Uncle Sam, and a Firecracker!
Always a favorite for the Fall season, I've started filling orders on these THANKSGIVING GARLANDS and got a few sent out. Some of the pieces came from designs by Myra Mahey; just not sure of the name of the book, though. I'm sure I'll be busy throughout October making them, too!
 This little wooden gal is getting some fancy duds this weekend! She'll come equipped with a broom and her little wooden black kitty! She's a bit of a Proto type and if she turns out, I'll list her in the shop.

Pumpkins baked and primmed! A pattern from Kim at ORP or Old Road Primitives. I'm finishing up the kitty that goes in the Pumpkin Patch this next week and then I'll show you. 
If you haven't signed up for my FACEBOOK 600 Fans Giveaway, then run don't walk! It ends Monday, Sept. 30th. Just click on my badge on my right side bar and find the photo of the hat to leave a comment. SHARE for an extra chance!
Our temps have cooled down a bit and dryer air is moving in. We actually may get close to 60 at night!! WOOO HOOO!!!! HA!

I have all my Fall/Halloween out and love the fact that I get to think of you every time I look around my home, from my pumpkin "Happy Fall" to my "Best Witches" Aggie, hanging in my revamped kitchen, over the coffee pot! She makes me smile. :)
So happy you get some time off from your hobby. Bet you're just loving having your Sam home!
Love you, my friend!

Oh boy and you deserve a break too. I know you work hard. I've found myself feeling that same way in the past. Take a break so you don't get burned out young lady :)
