Craft your fingers to the bone and what do you get?? Boney fingers!

Hi--it's boring old me again! lol I have nothing new to talk about. Just crafting and doing the Mom thing--as usual. I have a little extra running to do now--Joe joined the Academia Squad in his ROTC class and Lindsey just got into the Dance team at school--so proud of them both! So that means even more taxi service for me! lol I swear I spend half my life in the car. Another reason to love the portability of embroidery.

Trying to get ready for this show this weekend--which I'm really looking forward to. I go in with a friend--we get a big space and split the cost and just combine our stuff. Her and I have been doing the shows together for about 5 years now. Last summer she and her husband sold their home in town here and moved up to their cabin--about 5o miles from here--so I don't see her much anymore, AND it is a big deal for them to get to town for the shows. So, we are only doing this one show this year together ( I may do another one or two myself, MAYBE-- if I run across any that sound interesting). I may just hang in and see what happens with Etsy this year--I don't really know yet. You know, just flying around here by the seat of my pants--living reckless! LOL ;0D

Oh, and I spoke with Misty today--she is doing so well in her new place! It just makes me so happy that she is doing so well. Thanks so much for the prayers on her behalf--they have really helped so much!

Well, I'll leave with a few pics of some of the new things I've been whipping up. I will have to bring a lot of the stuff I have in my ETSY shop with me to the show, so if you have your eye on something, you may want to grab it now!

This is a 2008 planner--with a handmade colorful cover and lots of pockets, ofcourse!!Retro Verde Coaster Gift/Desk set. I reached back--way, way, way back--to my high school years , the 70's, for the inspiration for this newest desk set.How about some really colorful cuteness?? Another little tin bucket pincushion--in such a fun fabric, not for shrinking violets!

***a little add on--I've decided to run a special from today until Friday afternoon--10% off orders over $20. See my shop for details!***

Love the orange and green - it's fun to mix up the colors once in awhile, huh?

Well, I didn't think it was boring at all. I wish I lived close enough to do a show with you. that would be fun!

Hugs, KJ

You definitely are productive! Like Jenn said, it's nice to try different color combos together and see how they come out-the orange and green are retro but refreshing! You tin can pincushion is adorable!


How come when I work my fingers to the bone, I get bony fingers, but it never works when I work my butt off? LOL!

You should do great at your show 'cuz your work is terrific!
