I'm having a sale!!!  The EtsyMom team is having a team wide Christmas Shopping Season Opening Sale.  I am offering 10% off every purchase, including custom orders!!!  You can also click here for a complete list of participating shops.

I had a very productive week.  I made a cellphone case for a returning customer to match the shopping cart cover and plush ball that I made her earlier.

I made two pillow covers for an Etsy client with a custom order that turned out fabulous!

I also made three custom art rolls:  a crayon roll for "Stella", a colored pencil roll for "Summer" and a marker roll for "Logan".  I LOVE making these;  it is sooo much fun to play with the different fabric combinations and to come up with ways of personalizing each one to the child receiving it!  Stella is getting a colorful crayon roll using the Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric with an applique
 heart.  Summer is getting a custom crayon roll featuring a Michael Miller print with monkeys doing yoga and her brother, Logan, is getting a marker roll featuring pirate sculls with an appliqued jolly roger symbol.

Coming up, I will be finishing a retro-style full apron in blue and gray.  I will also be framing a husband's 97 year old grandmother was going through some things the other day and came across a handmade dress that she wore when she was about 5 years old.  This dress is absolutely beautiful!!! I am waiting for fabric to be delivered that I will use for the background and the dress will be mounted on that.  I will post pictures as soon as it is complete.  
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and you were all able to look around you at the abundance of things to be thankful for;  sometimes it takes a holiday to truly examine our lives and see all that we "have".
