things that caught my eye/ thirty-three

1. I generally like my fudge classic with walnuts, but this peanut butter chocolate fudge looks cute with the little swirl of chocolate on top. 2. Mini herb wreaths! 3. Now that I’ve conquered hats, its time to move on to mittens. 4. Salt dough ornaments have a cousin? 5. I don’t think I could ever eat these, but they look like a Christmas party.

What are you up to this December weekend? I have some animals to sew, a garden to protect from bugs, and we still have all the leaves in the world to rake. We’re tempted to get one of those extra large holiday bags that you fill with leaves. Hope you have a merry one!

a happy thanksgiving

How was your holiday? We got up early to start dinner, spent a hectic couple hours in the kitchen, then napped, went for a walk, watched a parade, ate leftovers, and watched football for the rest of the day.

I was in charge of the marshmallows.

With that guy I am super thankful for.

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.

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.

st patrick’s day

We had a pretty simple St Patrick’s Day. It will be fun someday to plan out green pancakes, and watch for Leprechauns. For now, we made enchiladas for dinner, and went on a long evening walk. We also have fresh, clean sheets on the bed, so if that doesn’t say holiday, I don’t know what does.green and yellow flowers
