Tomorrow is CYBER MONDAY!!! Come shop at I SEW LUCKY and get 20% off your purchase!! Here are a few things you will find in my shop:)Many hoots of this size and soooo many fabrics it will be hard to choose just one:) There are also a few chubby ones in the small section hanging around:)

A few BIG cuddly ones to snuggle up to:) Even a few in the medium size:)The medium ones have a few really extra special ones:)I LOVE the ruffles:)

Looking for a stocking stuffer:)Mini owls are the perfect gift for stuffing those stockings:) Even the small owls fit in stockings:)

I know one of my favorite traditions is getting an ornament for each child every Christmas.I made over 250 of these little ornaments and am running low, so have a bunch cut up and ready to be sewn. I like to stick these in the kids stockings:)

Hoooo likes to read books? My kids get new books for one of their Christmas presents! These Owls bookends are the perfect thing to keep them upright.This little hoot is just one of many fabrics you will find in the shop:)

How about decorating for the holidays with one of these!You will also find some for all year round or decorating your child's room:)

WAIT, I am not done yet:) How about those sweet dollies?

I have only a few of the dolls in the shop. They are very time consuming, but they are so dang cute:)

Ok, now I am done:) Hope to see you shopping at I Sew Lucky tomorrow:)

A new record for I Sew Lucky

Yesterday in the shop was crazy!!! First I met my 1500 sales goal for the end of the year!!! YAY!! Also yesterday was my highest sold items in one day! ( I think:/)

This size hoot is the most popular in the shop right now. I have been busy making some with Christmas colors. This is 3 of them. The blue one is in the shop now and hopefully the other 2 will follow later today. I have like 6 other ones that go with this collection. Sometimes I feel like I am little nuts. I have so many orders to get out the door and all I want to do is make new owls and new designs. It is an illness;)

Another example is this owl:) I had a custom order for a larger lavender chenille owl and I HAD to make another one so I could add it to the shop:) At least I LOVE my job:)

Tomorrow I hope I can set aside the sewing and have some quality time with the family. I really look forward to the Holidays!! The kids are so EXCITED for tomorrow, spending time at Grandpa Bruce's house.

Wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

A quick Hello!

I am just popping in to say Thank you for all the owl shopping going on at I SEW LUCKY! I am a little crazed right now because of a show I am doing this Saturday in WI. Me and the kids are all grabbing our pillows and heading out to my mother's to spend the night while the hubby gets to stay home alone and relax. It is just a small show, but my mom asked me to do it so how could I say no? I have a few things to put up in the shop next week. A little sneak peek at another one.
Wishing everyone a grand weekend!

A little bit like Santa's workshop:)

Actually as I was taking these pictures, I thought it really isn't that bad.Sewing table.Ironing board. I thought I would love having this on the door. But, it knocks around too much and the sleeping boys are on the other side of the door.My poor quilt waiting for me to finish it. MANY OWLS, waiting to be filled and sewn. I wish there was more time in the day.
I added a few new items to the shop:)
LOVE the colors of this hoot!

Victoria the Fancy Dollie! Let me tell you that my fingers are killing me today from making those little silly flowers in her hair. OUCH!

I will have a new dollie and a new chubby owl to share with you tomorrow:)

Hope you are having a great Thursday!

Now, I need to figure how to put the code under it for those of you who want to put it on your blog. Ya, good luck with figuring that out:/


This weekend I was doing some Christmas shopping on Etsy and Big Cartel I forgot about this shop that I had hearted. JANET HILL STUDIO She is sooooo talented! I can't get over all the detail. I want every single print. Of course I needed one for my house. The one below is the one I purchased.
I just love the typewriter and the pillows. Look at all that detail! This one is my sister's favorite. So cute:) I think this one will be next on my list. LOVE it, EVERYTHING about it!

Time to think about Christmas!!

My most favorite holiday!! I love it!! Decorating is kind of a big deal around here. I would love to start now, but I don't think Matt would go along with that. But................I can shop for gifts!!! How about some of these AWESOME shops in THE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE at Gussy's blog:) I would love to hear what shop you plan on shopping at this year. Mine is stocked full with hoots, hoots and more hoots. I only have about 4 dolls left in the shop so I better get busy creating some little gals:)Cute for a boy or a girl:)The chubby owl:)

You never can go wrong with Amy Butler's fabrics. I LOVE THEM!!

So, go get your shop on!!

What a blur!

Halloween is always quite the freak show around here. The kids are so excited all day to get ready for trick-or-treating and get all their candy.We has a hippie, a disco girl, a rockin' butterfly, wolfman, woody and Minnie Mouse. Quite the gang:)For the kids Halloween make-up I am used to putting on mascara and lipstick. I have never done anything like this. He would not stop talking which made it a little more difficult. One time I had to say stop talking so I can do this. After a brief pause and I do mean brief, he says, " I can talk in Spanish". We sure got a kick out of that one. These two were the first ones done trick-or-treating. Zhaina was hilarious, she was eating her candy like she was in a race. After a few minutes she couldn't sit still.

Soon enough all children were back home and the trading and sugar rush began.

Check out the shop today for some new items:)
