I got spotlighted on someones blog

So I got very excited the other day to get a note on Etsy that another blogger spotlighted my bracelet here along with other great crocheted artist. check their blog out......

Business has been very sloooooooooow....but I'm trying to keep optimistic about it. I hope this gets a bit of a boost in my shop. I know people are liking my items.....

Well I hope everyone had a great holiday. I know we sure did. I would blog on more about the family fun of our holiday but standing up to type at a computer desk is now fun.....but saddly or should I say painfully I took a spill on our stairs the other day and bruised my tailbone so it hurts like no other to sit. So I'm off to lay down on my stomach and watch a movie with the kids.

Her name is Betty

Ok so we had another great snow day. Normally I'm not one to play in the snow cos I hate getting cold.....but it wasn't to bad and I have My hubby and son to attack with snowballs in revenge, HA HA HA. I've also never made a snowman in my life beside itty bitty ones that sit on the porch rail, LOL. So today I took my scuplting talent to the test....TEE HEE.
Her Name is Betty........

I was cheated on, LOL.

I am her creator

Leave it to my 4yr old to mention to his Mamaw (my mom) that our snowlady had "boobies"

Meet Billy

So I was at a store the other day in the toy section and noticed those Ugly Dolls. Well my theme this year for gift giving is homemade and upcycled. So I couldn't resist making one with more a teddy bear look for the cutness. I named him billy. He's made for a little girl I know out of upcycled upholstery and vintage button with a scrap fabric heart. I know he doesn't have a mouth but I thought the eyes had enough personality that he didn't need it and my friends that was over agreed. My hubby thought it was a horrible looking bear and couldn't believe I would do this on purpose, LOL, but my 19mo old LOVED him. So I guess I'm going to have to make one for her as well....LOL. So I figure Hey if it passed my toddler test I'm sure the gift will be a hit with the toddler (leaving nameless so the parents don't know, LOL) I'm giving this to for christmas. I even added a note....

"Hi, *****!
My name is Billy.
I may not be the
Cutiest bear on the
block but I was
made with lots of
love and a unique

So anywho, I know I've been gone awhile in the blogging world but with the holidays I've been busy busy. Busy with having fun with my family, now that my hubby is home, like going to or having christmas parties, went to an awesome Concert (first childless date we had in a LONG time, TEE HEE) and busy with getting all the christmas gifts done or bought. I kinda can't wait for the holidays to be over so I can get back to a slower routine. Though I have been enjoying life. Happy Holidays
