I am still here...

I have not been a good bloggy friend.  I know this.  I feel guilty about this.  So, that's why I want to get you all up to speed on why I haven't been a good friend...  It's because I overbook, take too much on and otherwise do too much.  How does one not do this?  Especially when there are so many fun crafts to do or when life is generally occurring?

Since Halloween, we had our second, sweet boy's birthday, a crafting market I showcased some items in, Christmas orders (arising from said market,) and decorating for Christmas; all the while, having our daily life occur.  I want to show you some of the fun, we have had along the way...
I made two balloon wreaths for the front door to celebrate birthdays.  Well, correction, I had one half-way made for the past year.  So, I finished it and another for our double doors.  I also made some fabric bunting; I like the idea that it's good for the Earth (no throwing it away) and maybe the boys will want to use the decorations for their children some day.

There are billions (like Dr. Evil says) of tutorials out there on the wreaths...  Word to the wise, buy more floral pins and balloons then you think.  I kept my receipts, just in case I had any leftover...  Not a chance as I had to go back and purchase more balloons and pins.  They don't go that far and I didn't even worry about the sides.  I just did the top, outward facing part of the wreath.

At the crafting market, I showcased some caddies and zippered pouches... I simply stained the caddies, which were 12 and 18 inches.  Left plain for the recipient to use as they wish.

Of course, I couldn't help but Aggie up a caddy.  Unfortunately, this one didn't sell, so momma gets to keep it!!  I know it's not a sound business model, but what the heck!  I love it!!

I did get a large custom order out of the market.  I will be showing some of the things I will make for one lovely customer in the next few weeks.  So, I was actually doing stuff and even documenting it along the way, just not blogging about it.

I will be better about completing my blogging duties, but as you can see I am a work in progress.  This is supposed to be fun (which it totally is!) but also, this blog was to help me finish crafts, too (which I have been doing.)  So, stay with me...  I am here and will continue to blog.  Thank you for hanging in there!

Take Care,


  1. Thank you, Maureen! Unfortunately, the things that I was doing were not the holiday projects I already wanted to do... I am going to have to sneak some in during the next couple of weeks! Thank you for stopping by and dropping me a few lines! :)

    Take Care,
