Can't Wait

So I just purchased my labels for my clothes. One step closer to getting my stuff listed. I have been working on some things the last couple of days. Samples to find what I want to list besides my pillowcase dresses. Now to design my hang tags and figure out my packaging. I am so excited.......

One for my son

I made this guy for my oldest son. I've named him Sir Archiebald the Knight. Can't wait to see what adventures they go on together. I am having so much fun making these dolls my mind is already spinning about what the next one will look like. My dd really wants one for herself.

My First Atempt

So after reading a post from houseonhillroad about Erins home made gifts, and following her link to wee wonderfuls, I made my first Olive doll. I am sending it to my niece as a surprise and I am getting ready to make an Archie for my oldest son. I will post pictures of him when I get him finished. It was a lot of fun putting her together and seeing her face emerge, putting the bottom on was a bit of a challenge. Not all that bad in the end.

Hello 2008......

The pork and sauerkraut are in the crock pot and most of the decorations are down. I still need to get to the tree today. Christmas was good with the exception of both the little guys getting ear infections. Two nights spent at the ER and a morning at the Drs they finally both got their antibiotics and are much better now.

It has been a low key holiday and with it being our first spent at the house and not going home to visit my parents I thought it would be sad. To tell the truth it was nice. I have made a few resolutions with the new year and what we will do differently for Christmas 2008. All in all it has been a good year, and I look forward to what this year has to hold.

Now to get to sewing and my new passion, finally decorating my house. Remodeling is done with the exception of that last 10% that everyone is guilty of putting off. I am ready to make this house feel like a home so there will be posts to follow about that journey too.......
