She's SEW in Love ...

So I recently got the advanced copy of Sew Sommerset ..... it is soooooo wonderful .... Ruth Rae is featured in here among many other wonderful artists ... when i first started in blog land i did a swap and I was partners with Ruth Rae , she made me one of her amazing sewn cones and I have it hanging in my studio , along with a gorgeous pair of nest earrings - I covet them , Ruth is an amazing inspiration and talent .... so make sure to check it out .... also in the issue are my felted cuffs - I am thinking of teaching some fun felting classes at the blissful studio this spring
like this one... the girls are begging me to teach the felted purse I made for myself on Thanksgiving ..... here is me at the studio with it on (terrible photo of me, I know) it reads She Dreams Big ....
Well , I have been super busy finishing orders and preparing for the holidays , not to mention running kids to the dr (yes we all got the cold that went around) and making 24 cookbooks for my sons class & teacher - a true super mom - not sure how i am doing it all , but the laundry is piled to the ceiling , the dishes have remained in the sink , and my house & studio look like a bomb went off - Oh and did i mention we are having the entire family over for Christmas Day ? LOL !!! AND my christmas shopping is only half done .... so I guess i best get busy .... hope you all have a truly blessed and RELAXING holiday !!!!!!! I know I am looking forward to just taking a week off and doing nothing ... so I will to be taking a blogging break ....but I hope to share one more post of some of my holiday decor before I sign off .....
until next time,

she enjoys life...

So I am a little bit under the weather with a cold today and not much of a voice -so I am taking it easy on the couch when there is a million other things i should do today... i called in sick to my hubby and he said he thought i had a few sick days saved up that I could take one ... So in the meantime I thought I would share some new things in the store ...

a new necklace....

and this bracelet is in the works ...and many more things in the works too ....

so happy that SHE loves her "white hot " cuff and that she loved using my new crowns in her amazing doll creations ! Also managed to get my house decorated yesterday ... my boys are soo excited this year ... it makes christmas contagious to see them soo giddy with joy - so i will be sharing my holiday vignettes this friday for this .... be sure to let Maria know if you want to play along would love to see all your decorations too...
see ya soon,
