Working Hard

Good morning!! I am working hard getting orders finished and things made for the upcoming show. My fingers are so sore right now, but I am finally seeing some progress being made!! Only 2 more weeks to go!! After the show, I have a couple of orders to get done, and then I am hoping to take some much deserved time off!! I need to get at all of the Fall cleaning before it is Winter!! The dust bunnies are multiplying faster than ever around here. I do have to say that my children and hubby have been wonderful with helping with the everyday things around here, but they just don't do the deep down cleaning that needs to be done! Sooooo....when the show is over, and the orders are all done, I will try to tackle all of those little things that have been adding up around here so that the house will be nice and clean & crisp for my favorite time of the year...the Christmas Season!! Time to get out the flannel sheets, cranberry candles, pack away the summer clothes, etc. and settle in for the winter. I may even make a thing or 2 for my own house. After about 14 years of making dolls and other things, I only have 2 of my dolls in my house!! I call them Derek & Jackie, and they sit on a chair together holding hands. :) I will try to get some pictures taken soon of some of the things I have been working on and post a couple of Pre-views for you. Until next time, be blessed!! ~~Jackie

More Feather Trees

Derek has been back at making his awesome little Feather Trees!! We will only have a limited quantity this year, so get them while you can!! They are available in our ebay store & on our Picture Trail. They are hand made by Derek right here in the U.S.A. They are about 13~14" tall including the antique blocks they sit on. Each one is unique as no 2 blocks are the same. They are so fun to decorate with, and make great little Christmas gifts!!

New Patterns

It is a rainy, dreary day here in Ohio, so I decided to spend the morning getting a couple of new patterns together. I got three new ones finished, and listed them on my Picture Trail and on Pattern Mart. You can find the links to these on the side bar. I hope you like them. They are all so fun to make. Now I am off to clean my house. My Mom is coming for a visit!! I am so excited!! I haven't seen her in over a year. She is coming a day early, though, so now I have to rush around even more to get things ready for her visit. Take care until next time~~Jackie
