Happy New Year All you out there…..

Hi Everybody-  I have been MIA for a while.  I sure hope that you have all had a wonderful holiday season.  We still need to remove the lights from the outside of the house.  We can then get all the Decorations stored away in the attic for another year….  Jen goes back to college on Tuesday.  ugh.    So what have you all been making?  Anything exciting?  I might get inspired by your projects.  I am really trying to get my head on straight.

At this moment Yahoo says that they cannot retreive my email.  That I need to walk away from 10+ years of contacts and other info.  I have been making a list of places I need to contact.  Ugh.  That does not help my Head…  But it does clean out my old  emails….  So if you are reading this and have tried to reach me by email you know why I have not responded.

January is running fast and I pray you are all having a great time making things.  Is it sewing, painting, drawing, what kind of textures or glitters are you working with?  Christi Friesen Blathered about playing with glitter.  Check out all of her great work!  http://www.cforiginals.net/ I know my friend Dawna has a clean work surface she was bragging about today on FB.  Maybe I could start there.

Happy New Year! K

Mellowcreme Pumpkins in Polymer Clay

New in my Etsy Shop….

itty bitty polymer clay Mellowcreme Pumpkin beads!

I love the candy! I could eat a whole bag(or two) no problem. I may try to make the other things in the bag, maybe. I think this may require more research….

Yum! – Tina

Back To Business

Whew! I got Nikki’s birthday party done. She had a great time with all her funny friends. Apparently, to keep this crowd happy it takes is a pool, noodles, squirt guns, bubbles, glow sticks, stick on moustaches, a couple of sombreros, sour patch gummies, pizza, soda, skateboard keychains, cake and markers to write on the tablecloth. Good times…good times…

We had to use the table that I work on for the party, so now that I have it back I’m back in biz! I’m still into Halloween colors and goodies, getting stuff together to sell.

Why is it always food?   – T

Making Birdhouses!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have been planning on making Birdhouses for some time now.  We had a bunch of wood pieces left over from trimming the ends off of board when we built our fence.  They are nice boards and I thought that they should not be wasted.  So I decided that I would make some birdhouses and decorate them in some fun ways.

Today Marty and I got them all put together.  We cut all the sections and then did an assembly line to put them together.  I have big plans for the finishing of them.  But for now they are all natural.  I plan on putting wire and beads on them and possibly painting or washing some with a color stain.  I figure I will do as the spirit moves me.  -K

A Black Beaded Bag

Well, I received another special request. This time the customer wanted an Amulet Bag that I have listed… only in all black. I knew I could do it. I just forgot how long it takes and where the pattern was! I remember I enjoyed making the bags, not the prep. I asked for at least two weeks knowing that I would have to find a/my pattern, cotton, beads and needles and time. I figured it would be mostly taken up by searching.

This is what she saw…

After a little research I got to work. It all came back to me.

This is what I did for her.

It is hard to know what someone else has in mind. I hope she likes it.

This project has kicked-in the knitting bug again…yup, I’ve started two more! – T
