Winter blues

Every year I have the winter blues in February. This year it came early. Living here in northern Minnesota, the winters are soooo long. Mornings are usually gloomy which has made it really hard for me to get on the dreaded elliptical trainer (have yet to hop on). We did however get a Wii fit and it has become a big hit with the kids. Me, not so much:/ It is really hard to get motivated. But, I have been very motivated in the studio:)) I added 26 NEW items to the shop yesterday!! The chenille owls have become the most sot after. They are pretty dang cute:) I only had a couple girl ones in the shop and finally got around to making some little hoots for the boys. You can also find them in white, blue and some other little girl ones in pink and yellow.

I only had 1 mini owl in the shop and add some requests so I have added a few of these also.The perfect little something for Valentines day or for any day.

The chubby owls are another popular item in the shop, so I had to add a few of them as well.Don't forget about the small hoots!I LOVE this color combo! Amy Butler's fabric with Riley Blake's, so cute!Hooty Hoot Riley Blake is another popular one.

Can you ever go wrong with black and pink? Check out this other pink and grey combo!

I also added 2 bookends. I am working on more, but have a wholesale order I need to finish first.

SO my question to you is how do you handle the winter blues if you don't live in a nice warm sunny place?


  1. I was just saying that my winter blues came early this year too :( How are we gonna last all the way through until spring?! I need a pick-me-up so today I'm getting a haircut in hopes that it helps...but who knows, sometimes it makes it worse :/

  2. These are all so sweet! I understand the winter blues....I think mine started early December! Ugh! Hang in there. ~Val
