What a busy few days it has been!! Christmas Eve started off with the my Dad and step mom, Julie at our house celebrating Christmas! The kids had so much fun eating Pizza Hut and opening their fun presents! I tried to take some pictures of them all together and of course never got everyone smiling at the same time! This is the best I could do.....
I tried again after everyone go their traditional Christmas Eve jammies on.
They all seem to look happy:) Jonathan's expression is my favorite! They all wanted to hold a present in this next one......
AWWWWWW:) So happy, it makes me wish I was kid again:)
Preston and Jonathan doing a little playing.
Preston putting out cookies and milk for Santa!
After lots of excitement the kiddies finally went to sleep and I did one of my favorite things. HO HO HO!

If you notice, half of the side of tree has no lights:/ We can thank the cat for that one. I caught her up in the tree. I hand no desire to fix it. One last cute picture of Christmas Eve.

I love his little shaved head:) He is too dang cute! Love you Preston!

I had both my cameras going all night and decided to Matt in charge of the digital on Christmas day. I wish I would have had both. This is the only one I have to share of our very busy fun day!

I was so disappointed that I did not have more to choose from. The digital camera does not take very good pictures, but it would have been nice to have more. I will have to wait to get my film developed for the hopefully better ones!

We had such a fun time with the family! LOTS of food and laughing!! I wish my brother and wife could have made it home this year and also my sister Melissa had to work:( Too bad that it had to end a little earlier this year due to the bad weather.

I wish everyone has a great New Year!

I am not ready!!!

I am not ready for Christmas to be here yet. I am not even ready for Preston's birthday which is in 2 days!! Tomorrow I am hoping to get almost the rest of my shopping done:) We will see how that goes. I am trying to get the Christmas gifts I make, finished. I barely have started:/ Maybe I should stop making these...............

These bookends are fun because they can be toys as well:)................A little heavy, but cute:)

SEWING nonstop

That is kind of how I feel. So much sewing going on over here:) I really never imagined that I would be so busy this year with the shop. Last year was so quiet.

While I am busy doing custom orders and sewing ornament after ornament, I squeeze in some items for the shop. Here are a few of the newest little dollies!
3 of them are for the shop:)
Sally has a similar one:)

Which one is your favorite? Tell mw what you think of the eyes. Do you like them better with shut eyes? You will have to look at old posts or my shop to see the other ones.

I have a ton more ornaments to make. have a good night:)

Santa's workshop!

My studio definitely feels like Santa's workshop right now. It has been so hectic with everyone having the stomach flu. I am now the only one left to get the awful sickness:/ In the meantime this is what I have been busy doing.
There is really bad lighting on this side, so sorry for the bad picture.
The ornaments are selling so fast. Luckily I have a few of them already cut up and ready to sew. I hope I have some left to give as gifts:)
These ones are one of my favorites to make.
This one is waiting to be stuffed. I was crazy busy the other night making stuff for the shop. I made 13 owls, like 20 ornaments (can't remember exactly), 4 dolls and 5 mini owls!!!!! Some of the owls were bookends.
A few of them have sold already. I enjoy making these as well:)
More projects to finish. Dollies are the most work out of all the little creations in my shop, besides the quilts.

I am so grateful that I get to bring these to the post office twice a week and sometimes more:) LOVE what I do!

Here is a cute picture of Preston as Hockey:)

He is doing sooo much better this year. No laying on the ice yet:)

Today is another busy day of bringing Preston to school and working on the dollies while Jonathan takes his nap, only to be woken up in a couple of hours to go pick Preston up and then Corrina and Carmen from school and then back to the middle school to pick up Corrina!!! Lots of running around with all these little kids. What else would I be doing?

Have a great day!
