This is what happens when Jonathan does not have a nap:/

He was so crabby when it was time for bed. He threw the biggest fit and he doesn't do that. He went under his bed naked and would not come out. I thought to just pick my battles. If he wanted to do that, fine. Matt got him out after he fell asleep.He fell asleep rather fast.

Friday was Carmen's party with her friends. This is one of my favorite photos of them.Next year they may think they are too old to play on the swing set:(They had so much fun together.

I have been adding some Halloween ornaments to the shop this year. Here was they look like. Their are a few different fabrics.

I will be adding more and the Christmas ones are in the making. There are only 3 more days until my BIG NEWS!!!!! So excited!!!

I moved some furniture out of my Studio and I have to say that I love the space it gave me. I love having one table in the room.All the cubes were moved from the back of the room and I put a cutting table back there instead. It so much better this way.The first picture is all my scrapbook stuff that I have not been able to use because I spend all my time sewing. I miss it and will have to make some time for it.A added this Halloween banner/garland to the shop today!!A closer look:)A girly banner, which I LOVE!

A closer look:)

I hope everyone has a very nice Thursday!

I miss him already!

It is Matt's first day of work today after he had 10 days off. I get really spoiled when he is on vacation and the kids as well. We had a great week. We always pack a lot in to the week. This week it was Carmen's 11th birthday!Isn't she cute:))))It was soooo hot and humid this day so we decided to head to our local outdoor pool and spend a couple hours there before we had this yummy cake! She had a birthday party with her friends on Friday.!

Jonathan always has the happiest smile on his face. He is having so much fun with his daddy! This is one of the reasons we love him (dad) so much!

I will ave lots to share for the next few days. We really did do a lot. We ripped wall paper down and painted (I HATE THE NEW PAINT). I painted furniture, we had a birthday party (2), we went to the lake, went to a family gathering ( I love doing that), I rearranged my studio and fit some sewing in at night mostly and there was probably more:) I will try and not be lazy and get those blogs in.

Dollie custom orders and more

I think I have said this before. When I have to make 1 doll I have to make more then 1. That goes for the owls too. I just can't help it. I thought I would share the process:)10 little dollies all cut out and ready for the pieces to be sewn together.I have been sewing stitches around some of the dollies hair to add some more cuteness.All little pieces sewn together. Now I draw the faces on.All faces are now ready to be painted:)I love what they look like at this stage.At this point I get inpatient and only sew a few of them together. My favorite part is turning them inside out and seeing how they turned out. You can see on the edge of the table how I started some owls because I was getting inpatient.These little ones are the gals that will go in the shop. I tried something new this time and gave them little ruffle skirts. I LOVE how they turned out. It was a little tricky, but I think I got it.This is Mindy! I gave her 3 sets of ruffles. A closer look.She has 2 ruffles.
I have yet to fill the 3 dollie. So what do you think, do you like the ruffles?

While I am busy sewing and stuffing I came up with a new thing for Jonathan to do:)

1 down another to go

Sleepover that is. Corrina had her "birthday" slumber party this weekend. Apparently they were up until 4 am. I am so glad we were no aware:)

I have been busy with the owl banners/garlands. I finished 10 of them this weekend.I have a couple new added touches to them. Some of them will have these on them:)LOVE these pom -poms!Some have buttons on them. The button ones are my favorites! I added this one to the shop already and will add a pom-pom one later.

Check out the shop to see more pictures of the Owl banner/garlands!

Wishing everyone a great Monday!

The 4th and more:)

This is always one of the busiest few days for us! Corrina's birthday is the 3rd and this year she turned 13!!!She has wanted a cell phone for a couple of years, I have always said she was too young and this year I still said that and surprised her with a phone:) She had no idea and she almost cried. It was really great!Matt said the night before, "can you believe we are buying our kids cell phones and make-up?". Time really goes by fast!Since Corrina is going to celebrate her birthday with her friends this weekend instead we went to my dad's for a BBQ and fireworks! Boys LOVe fireworks!

On the 4th we had another BBQ to go to at my mom's house!Once again Carmen took almost all the pictures so she is not in any of them and she hates having her picture taken...........gee, I wonder where she gets that from:/

I have soooo busy sewing and getting ready for the big surprise! Thought I would show you what I am working on:)These are all ornaments and some for the NEW banners I will be doing! I have been working on these for a couple of months. There are about 250 here!!!!

Once I am done stuffing all those ornaments this will be over flowing with them!! These are Halloween ornaments! Something new that will be added to the shop this year!

These little guys are for all the owl banners I have lined up to make! There is layer of owls underneath these hoots! And lastly, I thought I would share what I love about these owl ornaments!

LOVE ribbon!! Anyways hope everyone has a lovely day!!
