~New Items Coming Soon~

Well, Christmas is all over, and it's back to work for me!! We had a wonderful Christmas...I was spoiled with lots of great presents. The kids got most of the things on their lists and we just had a great day overall. Now, it's on to designing and making things for the new year. I'll be doing a few Valentine things, but am mostly concentrating on Spring, so look for lots of bunnies in the future! I would post a preview, but am not far enough along for that yet, but hopefully by the end of the week. I'll have a couple of new items for Lemon Poppy Seeds on Thursday, so you can check there to see what I have new then, and I'll let you know when I update my Picture Trail or Ebay, and I am hoping to finally get something new on Etsy. I've had an account there for a while, but haven't done much with it. Well, that's all for now. I hope you all had a great Christmas, and here's to a wonderful New Year! Blessings~Jackie

I will be really busy until Christmas, so I wanted to make sure I wished you all a very Merry Christmas & a Blessed New Year!! I'd also like to thank all of you for your continued support of our work. I've met many new people on line this year & at the show. It's been a wonderful year for us, and I am looking forward to whatever the new year brings. God Bless You ALL!! ~~Jackie

~~Finally Finished~~

I am finally finished with all of my holiday orders!! Yippee!! I will be spending the rest of this week baking, wrapping the last of the presents and making a couple of gifts for family. Next week I will spend the week relaxing and enjoying family. I am going to try real hard not to pick up a piece of fabric, or a sketch pad & pencil, but it will be really hard for me. I always have so many things swirling around in my head that I want to do, and I hardly ever take time off anymore, but I will try! I won't be updating my Picture Trail or putting new things anywhere until probably mid to late Jan. I am going to work really hard at setting work hours and sticking to them in 2009. I have been getting up at 4 0'clock in the morning, and working until 9 o'clock at night including the week ends, and my old body is telling me I have to slow down a bit. I need to spend more time having fun with the kids & Derek as well. At least that is the plan!! We'll see if I can stick to it. I'll try to post at least a couple of times a week here to let everyone know what's going on and when updates will be. Well, that's all for today...I'm off to get some things done before the girls get up. They are on a 2 hr. delay for school, so I need to get busy!! Take care~~Jackie

**Ginger Bread House**

Well, usually every year I go and buy graham crackers, frosting, and a bunch of candy, and the kids make a little gingerbread house from scratch, but his year I saw a really cute little kit at the store, so I decided to go that route instead this year. We only have the 3 younger girls at home now, and the oldest (Courtney) is 17 & wasn't too into it this year, so while I was wrapping some gifts last night the 2 youngest (Hillary~11 & Gracie~9) dove into putting it together and decorating it. I think they did a pretty good job, don't you?? Usually we like to "display" their art work, but this year it looked so yummy that I thought....why not let them enjoy it before it gets hard as a rock!! So, after taking some pictures of them with it, I let them rip into it. We still have all the cookie decorating to do, so the fun will continue. Hope you all like seeing the pictures of my 2 littlest artists. Blessings~~Jackie

~2 New Patterns~

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! We had a great time eating lots of food and visiting with family!! The only complaint that I have is that my two oldest children were not here with us, but they have to spread their wings and start to live their own lives even though it's tough on their old Mom!!

Well, on to the patterns~~I have finally finished 2 more patterns and have them listed on Ebay, Pattern Mart & my Picture Trail. They are the Christmas Garlands & Mr. Kringle, so if you get a chance hop over to one of those sites to take a look!!

Now I am off to get ready for some shopping with my sister....we are going to hit some antique shops & a primitive shop uptown. Have a blessed day~~Jackie
