Week's almost over

I know it's late to be doing this but I have been busy. Not going to get the pic of Mom's votive holders on here because she came by early to grab them. Pictures of the faeries to go up during nap.

Here's what I am doing today:
* Finishing up the hats
* Work on Kye's lapghan
* Make a crochet mushroom with a top that opens and a little mouse to go in it

Accomplished today

Well, I got the faeries done, cleaned up the livingroom, worked on Kye's blanket and got 2.5 hats done. Pretty good for working around 2 very mischevious children!

Wednesday Morning

Last night I got several rows done on Kye's lapghan and more painting on Mom's votives. I finished them up this morning and started a neat little project that will be a secret until it is done.

Today's List to do:
* Finish the Faeries
* Sew those darn hats
* Work on Kye's blanket
* Get to that shopping cart software

Tomorrow morning I will have pictures to share of Mom's votive holders, and a preview of the lapghan (it's at the 1/2 way point. I will also have pictures of Alicia's dolls to share and the hats if I get them done.

Half Done

I worked on Alicia's dolls, Kye's lapghan and signed up on a crochet forum. I also painted Mom's votive holders. Didn't get everything on my list done but hope to get more done tomorrow.

Back on track

Okay, having the dental work done has thrown me off kilter but now that I am fully recovered I plan to start regularly making my "to do" lists and follow-ups letting you all know if I kept to it. So here goes...

To do Today:
* Work on Alicia's Faeries
* Get a couple more rows done on Kye's Lapghan
* Sew hats for kids
* Start setting up my shop with the new cart software

Monday afternoon

Spent the weekend Re-arranging the dining/craft room. I expanded my daughter's corner a little and gave her some storage as she's following in Mommy's crafty footsteps.

I've been working on Kye's lap afghan as well.

Nearly done with the 2 faery dolls I am making for a friend of mine, they are looking so cute!

Sewing fleece hats for all the kids since I can make them for $3 a piece or buy them for $19 each. :-O

I think that's it...

Oh wait, I nearly forgot, I set up a page to sell my Birds, Bugs and Flowers Decals as well.

Been exceptionally busy lately. Working on 3 faeries and crocheting my son's lap blanket. Also had another trip to the dentist. I also made some awesome peppermint fudge. Here's the recipe:

Peppermint Fudge

1 bag milk chocolate chips
1 cup Andes peppermint baking chips (plus extra for topping)
1 - 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
pinch of salt

Prepare 8" square pan with aluminum foil. Melt all ingredients in pot over low heat. Pour into baking pan and tap pan on counter to get bubbles out. Sprinkle with Andes peppermint baking chips. Cool in fridge for 2 hours then remove from aluminum foil and cut. Enjoy.

I know, I have been slacking in my posts but with the dental issues...

I am nearly done with my mermaid and will be starting my angel soon.

Thursday, October 05, 2006


My scroll is 100% complete. Will post a pic of it Monday.

Faery #2 has body and hair finished, but the wings are drying. Tomorrow I will finish putting her together and will post a pic when she is done.. My next 2 doll projects are an angel and a mermaid.

I also forgot to mention I started a cranberry cordial. Really looking foward to that.

Hump Day

Sorry about my lack of post yesterday. I broke a tooth and had to go in for emergency dental repair which turned into a root canal. Needless to say I did not get anything creative done.

Today I have finished lining the scroll and it is 3/4 finished being painted. I plan to finish it up at the beginning of nap and work on another faery for the rest of nap.

Monday afternoon

I finished my faery, here's some pictures of her: Top, Front, and Back.

I've also nearly finished outlining the scroll with black and will be (hopefully) finishing it tomorrow. Will post a pic of it after this weekend since I can't post it until after it is given to the recipient.

Chili is in the crock pot and has been simmering all day.
