First up, the winner for the ornament giveaway is Kent. Yay! Kent, email me your address and I will send your awesome little penguin on his way.

Things are finally slowing down a little and I have big plans for a studio re-do. We had some water damage in the ceiling and had to make some repairs, so I thought why not spruce things up with some new paint and finish painting the trim we put in after the wood floors. Also, doing some organizing which means some purging. I've already donated two boxes to our school and still have more to go through.

Thanks to everyone for their comments on my new pieces.
Have a creative week, I know I will

Craft show and giveaway

This is only a handful of some of the critters that will be on display this weekend at the local craft show. I had so much fun creating all these pieces. I am partial to the caroler below. Hope they all find good homes this weekend. I am still not at all ready, but I am still hopeful it will all pull together at the end. Gotta get back to work just wanted to drop in and post a few pics. (not great ones...due to weather). There is still a few days left in the giveaway. If you want you can still post your comment here and be entered in the random ornament giveaway.


My daughter Rachael's birthday is today and we are about to bake birthday cookies.
My husband talked me into making this one. He thinks everything should have a little Husker love.

New header

Totally stressing these days. I'm letting go of all the negative opinions and working like crazy to get prepared for this coming weeks craft show. I have been wanting to design my own logo for months now and just kept putting it off. Today I sat down and accomplished what I thought would be impossible. So, here it is as my blog header.
I have been watching all the Christmas stuff being put out in all the stores and I have to say it is putting me in a great mood. I love the holiday season, but what I love more is spending it with my family. My sister is coming out this Christmas and we always end up with funny stories to tell after spending a week together. We once made a song about how many times we had to drive into town from my house and it was set to the 12 days of Christmas. We named it 12 trips to Kearney. Let me just say, it is like a half hour drive and there is nothing but vast fields of corn, and cows, and an occasional small town. That year we laughed like crazy even though we spent most of her vacation in the car.
I already have the Christmas music playing for a little inspiration, while I am creating all these winter folk. It's funny, because Christmas has already been on my mind since August. I guess that is just how the life of a crafter goes. I have already been sketching ideas for Spring, because I know I will have to start creating for the Spring show right after my family leaves. I love being able to work like this.
What are you looking forward to this Holiday Season? Leave me a comment here on my blog and you could be the random winner of this little CUTIE.
