Another Sale coming up soon!

I can’t drive down the road to my supplier or just run to the store for thread, etc. anymore, so I am trying to get rid of most of the blanks I have left. It’s not much.

Many of the blanks are short sleeved bodysuits so it’s sort of an off-season sale. 

Once I get rid of most I’ll re-stock.  So please feel free to share with anyone you may know.  You guys know when I have a clearance sale it’s a REAL clearance sale.

I’ll post in a day or maybe tonight, once the sale is on.  My FB fan page and my Etsy store will be included so they may go fast.

You’ll have the option to personalize these blanks almost anyway you want.  So if you have time feel free to browse through my COMPLETED ORDERS ALBUM or some of the AVAILABLE DESIGNS for embroidering that are already digitized.

I also still have a couple scarves left that I made last week.

This is an extra long one that I’d love to ship to you.  It’s a cotton blend, that feels like 100% cotton.  No itching and it’s soft.  Just click on the name and read more about today’s featured item.

Extra long Ivory Crocheted Scarf – Unisex





Until later!

My Xmas tree Craft ...don't laugh.....

..all that really mattered was that my kids thought mom was so awesome for making this ;-) and I think it doesn't look too bad.

Anyway, I came up with one of my grand ideas to make a Christmas Tree this year.  I even dreamt about it the night before.  We moved yet again and were all out of sorts so I thought we'd do something different.

We have a huge Xmas tree on the property so I thought it would be cool, instead of going out to buy a tree that will be thrown out in a few days, I'll "trim" the bottom of the real tree in the yard and make my own.  I told Alyssa, it's 1 less dead tree this year. 

I am bummed that I didn't take step by step photos because I think this is a cool craft, but it's so easy maybe there was no need.

Anyway, all you'll need is a Powerdrill, large bits, a saw and any piece of wood for the base.  I drilled a bunch of holes at the top of my base (a piece of wood that was laying around the yard) to put the trimmed branches into.  Now your base doesn't have to be round it could be a square block of wood, etc..

I started on the decorations but never finished due to too much drinking.   I walked around the yard and gathered fallen pine cones, rub the glue stick all over them and sprinkled glitter.

This was the base

I want to do this next year again but I'll be sure to make some ornaments

I think you can sort of see some glitter on the pine cone, a little more on the purple one in the middle, to the right

I wrapped some of my jewelry making wire around the full length of the pinecone and made a hook at the top

I have a bunch more to share, including pictures of our drive but I will save that for a little later when the kids have settled down.
