Do you have one of these?

You know an idea book, a journal, a history of your creative mind. I have had this book by my side since Thanksgiving 2004. I can tell you what we ate, who was there, what time I started the turkey, you name it its documented in this book. There is also Thanksgiving 2005, 2006, and now a new entry, 2007. Same for Christmas, Easter, my 50th birthday party, small family gatherings. All my ideas, my drawings, my patterns for anything and everything that comes in my mind.

Well this book is being retired on December 31st @ midnight. though it will remain at my side so that I can always refer to it. Sad but true it will not be going on trips with me, or shows, or family gatherings anymore. It will stay home and rest and always know that I have loved making every entry and will always enjoy sitting down and reading and remembering.

But, we need to make new memories and I need a new book to keep them in, so I have picked out this one and have it ready for 2008, 2009, 2010.......

I did it. I now have a shop on Etsy. I don't know why it took me so long. but today was the day. Thank you to all who suggested that this would be a good way for me to go. I love making things but I also enjoy selling them. I just posted this one purse to start things up but will spend the next week getting the inventory up. Come by for a visit and tell me what you think. If you have any advice I would appreciate it, all this is very new to me.

Thank you all for your support

Some pictures to share

I promised some pictures so here they are. First a couple of snaps of our Christmas tree. A lot of wonderful memories hang on that tree. It always takes me to so many places when we decorate it. The kids when they were little and now the grandsons, the places we have lived, all of our families and loved ones and of course our pets. I love looking at all the twinkle lights and the reflections that they make. I always get a little sappy at the holidays.
Now on to the other pics, some of the purses that I made for the show. I love, love, love the green and purple one and I don't really care that much for purple. But it turned out beautifully. The shoulder bag with the needle felted peace sign and flap (my first attempt at a flap). And then the winter white with the camel flowers and leaves.
Hope you enjoy looking...

Where is she, you ask?

Here I am. Still in recovery mode from the show last weekend. I'm trying to decide on how I feel about the show.... And I guess I still need a little more time to think it through.......

But, I did take a leap and I put one of my eyeglass cases on ebay to see how it would do. It's nerve-wracking. Well I know what I'm going to be doing the next 5 days. Checking the listing every 5 minutes. LOL

Well here is the item that I put up for auction and a link to it so you can help me keep track.

So keep your fingers crossed.

I made some beautiful purses for the show and will post pictures in the next couple of days. I need good old sunlight for the best pics and it has been a bit overcast here.

Take care and will talk to you soon
