Where is the sun?!

I am waiting for the sun to come out so I can take some pictures of the new hoots! I made quite a few for the show I did this weekend. What a bust:/ The lady who was putting it on, did not advertise at all!! Not to happy about that. I guess you live and learn. Although I had a great day on Etsy Saturday! This cute little owl is selling like crazy!

I used up all the fabric the other day and thought, well, that is it:( I did a big search last night and found more!! I bought lots :) Now I can't find the pink. I think it is Micheal Miller, but I can't find it. Ugh!

If you have a great online fabric store you shop at and would like to share, I would LOVE to know!

Off to the sewing room!

Small OWL Plushies!

The shop has been busy lately with these small owls "flying" off the shelf:)I have been relisting them and relisting them. You should see my studio. I have like 50 of these cut up and ready for the holiday season:)There are a few with the button eyes. Most of them have the felt eyes so that they are safe for the little ones.

Felt eyes! This size is perfect for anyone that needs a special friend. They are a great price at $20. You can't go wrong!

I only have 2 left of this size in the shop.

I will be adding more fabric choices of this size hopefully next week.

Getting ready for a show this weekend so busy, busy!

Wishing everyone a good Tuesday!

Stuff for the House!

I have been in this mood to make things for the home. Yesterday I went on search to find all the yarn I had to make this:)I have seen these adorable pom pom garlands around. Finally got around to making one for the fireplace. Now I want to make more and more!! So cute!The full view! See the little round picture on an embroidery hoop? I made last week! I loved how it turned out, but I got the idea from this adorable Etsy shop. She is so talented! I love her blog as well:)From the other side. I would love to see what decorations your home has!

A sneak peek at the quilt I am finally getting to, to add to our growing Christmas decorations.

So what projects are you working on???

Last day!

Another busy weekend put to rest, only to start another busy week! LIFE!
I made this adorable owl last week:)Meet Mushroom the Chubby Corduroy Owl:) One of my favorite local fabric stores had this mushroom fabric and the corduroy sitting next to each other and I quickly grabbed the two. I usually have new fabrics sitting around for months before I get to them, but this could not wait! Some of my owls have hearts on the back of them, for this I thought mushrooms would be the perfect touch.What do you think?

I have some more photos from the fall photo shoot to share.Kids:)CarmenCorrina

I just have to smile when I see this one of Jonathan:)


How was your weekend and what did you do? I would love to hear about it!

Fall is here!

Fall is my most favorite season!! It is so beautiful around here now!! We should have went and did our photo shoot last weekend, but glad we fit it in yesterday! Here are some of my favorites and I will be sharing more through out the week.Carmen! I wish we would have taken way more pics right here, but it was at the end of our 2 hour long photo shoot and the kids were climbing all over and making me NERVOUS!!! I HATE being in pictures, it reminds me how much weight I need to loose:/ Someday I know my kids will cherish these photos, I try and remember that:)The lighting is awful in this photo, I can't get over how tall my kids are getting! This was one of my favorite spots!This tree was another great spot!This was such a neat place to take photos! I took a ton!I took a bunch of Carmen in this little place and just LOVE them! She is so photogenic. These look vintage or something.

Me and Carmy:) I know lots of girls in this post, tomorrow some boys:)

Have a fab day!

Busy Day!!

Does it really have to rain on the one day that I get to get my shopping on! I will have my 2 boys with me and it can be challenging not getting soaked while putting them in out of the car seats:/

The rain will take a little fun out of it. I need some minky for a custom order. I only know one place around here where I can get it. I am sure I will pick up more than I need at Hannah Johnson. She has the best store around!! So many Amy Butler fabrics, Joel Dewberry, Micheal Miller, Moda and sooooo many more!

I have been kind of bad at putting the hoots I made for TCC in the shop. But here is some eye candy:)

If you know of great place online to buy some minky...................please share!!
