Burlap Tree Skirts

I finished my tree skirts last night. I made one that matched my red burlap stockings, but it took such a long time to do all the pleats that I had to charge a larger amount than what I wanted to. I want them to be available for everyone, so I created a more simple one too. I actually love both of them. Lets hope they are a hit on Etsy too!For sale at

Multi tasking

Callie has recently been telling us when she needs to go to the bathroom. We don't want to not take her, so we take her each time she tells us. This night we were in the middle of dinner, and she wouldn't put down her corn. You might as well teach multi tasking at an early age.

Coloring pumpkins

Today Callie got to pick a pumpkin from our pumpkin patch. We've got several growing so I thought it would be fun to color one for daddy.
Here she is showing my the coloring.

My Etsy site doing pretty good and I've had a few people request items for free and in turn I get free advertising with their blog. I've done a Dr. Seuss hat and a couple of coloring wallets, but I've passed on many of them. I've gotten some good feedback from it though, but the best one so far is something I didn't have to do anything. Yesterday did an article on fabric quiet books and my COLORS book got chosen. I'm so excited! I've gotten so many views from their site. Hopefully it continues in lots of sales.

My Quiet Book

I've been making custom name books and selling them on Etsy for a while now. I've been meaning to make a generic quiet book for those who's names aren't long enough and make a pattern for others to make them self, but I just haven't had the time to do it. I had someone on Etsy want one without even seeing it, so it got my butt moving a little faster. This is my end result. I'm pretty excited about this book. Now I just need to write the pattern.
