almost christmas vacation

Can you believe its almost a week until Christmas? We’ve been in a holiday spirit for several weeks here, with lots of hot chocolate and candy canes, Christmas cartoons, shopping, friend dates, and breakfasts for dinner. I am very excited to do all those things with family soon.

And as much as I love making things, it will be nice to take a little break from sewing too! If you are in the market for a handmade stuffed animal or cute Christmas cards, be sure to get your order in today!

new in the shop: card and tag kits

I grouped together a couple of my cards and gift tags to make combo kits! The most popular one so far is the snow day edition, because that rocking horse rocks.

This is what part of my shipping station looked like a couple days ago. A super eclectic bunch.

i’m so famous

So yesterday was my birthday, and we took a field trip to get some yarn. While we were in the store, we browsed some magazines, and look what we found.

Something I made is in a real life magazine! It is the winter Do It Yourself magazine from Better Homes and Gardens. We only bought 2, so there should be plenty left for you. And you can find my claim to fame here!

new in the shop: redwork holiday cards

I am generally a firm believer that each holiday has its time. This is probably because I have a November birthday. I like to celebrate my birthday, then Thanksgiving, and then it can be Christmas music time. BUT it is time to start thinking about any gifts you need to make. If you start those after Thanksgiving, you may not finish in time. Plus, working on gifts and crafts in these early evenings is sort of what fall is all about, right?

So by that logic, now is the time to begin working on these cards! I am really happy with these classic redwork designs. Those deer cards are selling like gingerbread cookies at Christmas, or hotcakes, whichever you prefer. Find them in the shop now.

new in the shop: pumpkin bracelets

One of my earliest obsessions was tiny things. Making little bitty clay foods. Dollhouses. Basically the more miniature, the better. Which is probably one of the many reasons I like making these little fabric bracelets. Sure, you could sew a large pumpkin. But why not sew a tiny wee pumpkin, and then wear it around? You can find these pumpkin bracelets in the shop!
