Is it Saturday already?!! I just dont know where the week goes lately. Wasnt it just Halloween a WEEK AGO?? Wow I need time to slow down , its going by too fast.
I guess its that time of the year to start our Holiday Shopping, I am definitely not ready for that. The crowds in the stores,,YUK! I am going to really try to be prepared this year by starting early. Many of my friends decided this year, we are going to only give Handmade gifts to each other, this way its really from the heart. NO mass produced chauckie (Not sure about the spelling on that :) ) that will sit and collect dust, I definetly do not want any dust collectors. I love getting handmade anyway. So its a great idea. Some make scarves, purses, homemade soup, cookies, a photo album, a framed picture of their Dog, you name it, wouldnt that be awesome to get? So Im promoting HANDMADE this year, since that is what I do, and love it. When you just dont know what to get that special person, buy handmade, they are usually one of a kind items that you cant find in a store, you know its made with love, and someones precious time.

I have been selling these for over 3 years now, with the keepsake images on them, they are images that I print onto cotton fabric, not the iron on, these will not crack. They are definitely a Treasured Heirloom, and I hope you pack a Hankie along with it, from my experience they cause the water to flow from the eyes :).
I have made Family, grandchildren, children, Pets, First Christmas together, Baby's First Christmas. Individual family members with photos from baby to adult. As long as you can email me the photo, I can print MOST photos.
I hope you have a chance to get one.

Hope you all have a safe and Happy Holiday season

Another Halloween is over, all the decorations are put away, and the Thanksgiving Turkeys are on display. My Halloween was busy,busy. Started out the morning painting a bunch of old furniture white, Prime, then paint...it was so nice outside , My sister and I decided to pull it all out on her driveway to work on it,,Being a Saturday Morning, we had the usual lookie lous, thinking we were having a yard sale, Obviously with all the paint, tarps and furniture partly primed and doors removed, we werent having a sale. But they still stopped to see what we were doing. We could have done a better job, I must admit, but the furniture it for our little shop we are attempting to get up and running in the next two weeks, and they will be used only for display cases, table etc. They are truely SHABBY CHIC. Most of the furniture we have picked up at garage sales for nickles and dimes, The primer and Paint was the biggest expense. A few pictures of the before on some, and Ill keep you all updated on the completion.
Not too many goblins this year, I didnt even buy that much candy, and still had alot left. Bagged it up , put it in the freezer, out of my eye site. Thats all I need. Im sure the kids will find it in the garage freezer soon enough.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween, and a beautiful start to your November.
