I had my first purchase on etsy :) I have been seriously slacking on listing items on there (I only have like 6 items) with getting ready for the craft fair. I'm so excited!! I can't wait to get this craft fair completed & put some more focus on my shop.

A giveaway!! :)

This year I'm participating in Chambanachik's Christmas Giveaway. Eeek! I'm excited! 1. I think you should follow her because she is super sweet, and her blog posts are heartfelt and amazing. I love the way she talks about her kiddos. 2. You should follow her because you don't want to miss out on all of the amazing giveaways she's got lined up!!


I'm giving away one of these custom applique shirts. You can chose it for yourself, your child, a gift, whatever! You pick the size, color, and applique design. Who doesn't want to win a t-shirt that no one else will be wearing?

My date is December 15th, so make sure you stop on over and enter. I'll try to remind you, but I am back to being a horrible blogger, so I don't know if you can depend on me. Ha!

On another note, I'm crafting until my fingers fall off. I've got 18 days until my first craft fair, so I'm trying to build up a huge inventory, with a wide variety. Beyond overly ambitious, but I'm still trying! I need to stay off pinterest, because every time I get on, I see something new I want to add to my table. I can't wait to tell you all about it! I hope it goes well.

Also, I've got a post coming about a fall swap I did since my lovely swap partner (who was in the midst of moving during the swap) has retrieved her package from her mommas, and I wont ruin the surprise.

This & That

I've missed the Friday link-up like 3 times now. Thankfully, I remembered this week. Although, if you're on the east coast, it's already Saturday, but here in Alaska, it's only 8:30pm.

I have a few things I wanted to share with y'all :)

First, I probably should have posted this on Halloween, but I suck, so here is the cutest tiger on the block!

Yes, I totally bribed her with candy corn to sit still while I took pictures of her.

Second, I made this cute pillow, and I absolutely loooooove it. It's probably my favorite thing I've made so far. I had an idea in my head, and I'm glad it came out exactly as I pictured it.

Third, What does the fox say?!?!?! ;)

Fourth, I've been so stressed out lately its not even funny. We rented our house in NC to one of the guys my husband knew, and he totally screwed us over... like good-bye savings. Between him skipping out 6 months early on his lease, and leaving the place a wreck, he's lucky I'm not in NC kicking his ass. I'm contemplating now if a plane ticket is worth taking him to court over what he owes for the rest of his rent. I've spent the last month and a half pimping the house to anyone I can think of to get it rented, and its still not rented, and I'm getting worried.

Fifth, Don't forget to thank a Veteran!

Our last picture together before he deployed to Iraq in '09

This kid would paint every single day if you let her. She absolutely loves it. Turn your back for a second, and she will be covered from head to waist in it. Ha

I wanted her to paint something pretty like this on the canvas, but instead she did it on ugly lined paper :/

I took a cheapy canvas and added an A in painters tape, then let her go to town :)
