I spent most of today in bed after waking up feeling like I’d been run over by a truck. I did only one thing that could be considered productive today. Well, make that two things, if you count making a pitcher of sweet tea. I shipped out my first orders! That was fun and kind… Continue reading Another first! Still so excited!
I completely forgot to share my finished pillow that I was working on before Christmas. I finally finished embroidering the snowflake and then pieced together the top using solid white fabric and a snowflake print. The back is also the snowflake print fabric and I used bias tape around the edge for contrast. I was… Continue reading Gettin’ Crafty! – Let it snow!

I saw a really cute homemade ornament a few days ago when Nicolina re-blogged Jessie Euletha’s post – “A Very Pinterest Christmas: Volume 1”. Now, I don’t have any rug rats with chubby little hands to commemorate. What I do have is a geriatric dog, who, at 16 years old, is going to leave a… Continue reading DIY Puppy Paw Ornament – Ilex helps me make stuff
