I'm participating in my first ever Holiday Boutique this year. It's a little nerve racking. I've become pretty darn good at juggling. I must admit, I sure will be happy when my 'to do' list gets a little shorter.
I will also be creating some exclusive pillow designs for a specialty company in Boston. I'm very excited about this new business opportunity. I'll keep you posted.
Back to more dolls!

Some the newest items making their way to my shop are my wool blend felt flower hair clips. Super sweet! Here are just a few samples. Hope you enjoy!

I love the smell of scented pine cones and getting ready for Halloween. Something strange happens to me this time of year. I go a little nutty with arts and crafts for the kids. I get in full blown holiday mode, making cupcakes and cookies. I pull out the decorations. Sift through last years costumes and can't wait to see what the kids want to dress up as. It gets me all giddy inside.
With all this said, there is not much time left for sewing. Maybe the wee hours of the night? I'm still amazed that anyone can sleep through my late night sewing fits. I've had lots of dolls, pillows and bears on my cutting table these days. Finally the dolls and SOME bears are done. Here is a sneak peak. Enjoy and HAPPY FALL!

Check out these beautiful new fabrics from the FRENCH HAT BOX COLLECTION by Tanya Whelan . Aren't they delicious? Her fabrics are just glorious. I love them all.
This little pillow for Aliza turned out super sweet. Hope she loves it! Maybe one day I will have a camera that will take a decent picture... oh well. I have fabric scraps to remind me =)

This was a custom pillow created just for baby Aaren... love that name! His mommy sent me the sweetest pictures of his nursey. All different shades of blues and yellows and yummy greens.
This little birdie was just about to take flight. Once I had him laid out and pressed, that's when the real magic happened. The stitching is very time consuming, but watching this bird come to life is so much fun!

Emma and Spencer had so much fun running around Oak Canyon Park. It's such a beautiful place. I had to share this fun pic of them on the bridge.

They will be in my Etsy Store this weekend along with some new bibs. I wish there were more hours in the day. I have so many ideas in my head.
Enjoy these cuties!

I can remember sitting for hours watching my mom sew these intricate dolls as a child...how she had the patience? These dolls are much more simple, but equally fun to make. I've had this pattern lying around for a very long time. I've never made dolls but boy I'm in love! It's so fun picking out the fabric for their clothes and choosing the color of felt for their hair. I want each one to be unique. It will be interesting to see how that all comes along.

A special thanks to Kathy for allowing me to create these one of a kind cuties for her three nephews. I don't often get the chance to work with retro boys prints, so this was A REAL TREAT! Thanks Kathy. I hope your nephews truly love their new pillows. I had so much fun creating them. These are some of my all time favorites.
I've got alot of new designs lingering in this brain of mine. The house is quiet so I'm going to take advantage and get back to the cutting table. :)

I did update my shop with lots of new hair pretties...finally. I'm working on 4 custom pillows at the moment. I'm so excited. I love creating these little cuties. I know children love them just as much as I love making them. Well, off to the cutting table I go!

Flowers have always been a passion of mine. Beautiful Blossoms grew out of my own love of flower hair clips. Needing them for my own daughter Emma (now 4) and also wanting to give them as gifts. I love creating new sets. I spend hours searching for the most realistic looking silks.
