The Christmas Crafting is starting to get to me! I've got about 15 projects and 2 days to get them all done...oops! I think I can manage most of them...

First off - the PJ's for my cousins
A - helicopter pants with a black shirt with helicopter applique. I have A's pants completely finished, and the helicopter applique is on the wonder-under and just needs to be applied to the shirt.
L - Purple princess pants with a white shirt with a crown applique. Pants, not done :-( Applique is ready to be put on the shirt.
R - Monkey pant with a red shirt with initial applique. Pants - done! Applique not ready :-(

These are the projects on my to-do list for this evening. I am also knitting mittens and wrist warmers for all the girls in my family and I don't think I'm going to finish this in a timely manner :-( But I've got some nice fleece that I could sew up a couple of pair quick if needed :-) So that might be the perfect solution!

Merry Christmas to all of you! And wish me luck finishing my Christmas Crafts!

Sharing Ideas

My cousin called me a while ago and offered me a great idea for my etsy store. B is a runner and she was looking for something to keep her ID, keys and some cash in that didn't involve having anything around her waist. She saw a cute wrist wallet in a catalog and she wanted one, but she thought she'd see if I could do it before she bought one. I've done some research on them and found several different types, sizes and materials. I think that I can do something similar, so now it's just a matter of finding the right fabric. I can't wait to give it a shot and see how it comes out!

Etsy store is live now!

I finally got my etsy store up and running...have yet to sell anything, but I've gotten some views on my items! I'm excited, can't wait to actually sell something :-) I still have more items to get up, including tie purses, more coffee cozies, checkbook covers, purse organizers, finger tip oven mitts and more! check it out at!
