What's up...


So here I am, with a thought even. I have been away for much to long, I hope I have not lost any of my visitors. Everyone gets busy, overwhelmed, and stressed. But I am good. I have missed hearing from so many, but hope ya'll come in and visit again.
I really thought if I have to talk about the weather again, I may need to take some time away. I can talk about all that's been up, but that could be boring. It was just lots of doll making, and delivering. I sell the treasures I make to 5 stores near or almost near me. This time of year it really keeps me busy, plus I have a show coming at the beginning of November. I have this very small business, but It is mine, all mine. It's what I've done for nearly 18 years and I love what I do. I'm lucky that way.
Hubby and I just celebrated our 23rd Wedding Anniversary on October 12, and my Prince bought me a new camera. It is a Canon Power Shot A560, what ever that means, but I love it. I am just learning how to play with it. But hopefully my pictures will look much better. One thing I'll need to figure out is how to make the picture files smaller to fit on my Etsy shop. I'm not use to such power this camera has. Here's a few more random shots I took around the house...




Anyhoo, I have finished up the last of my Halloween treasures and I am on to Christmas work. I will (hope) to be even more busy. And I hope to stay on task as the holiday's approach. We'll see.

I made one last Hallow'd treasure to put on my Etsy shop. Last March, a good friend gave me these springs...
My friend said make something and this is what I came up with.


Meet Zelda my wicked beauty... Made of muslin, paper, and wool roving. Sculpted nose with painted eyes and lips. Wool roving hair and a paper hat I made topped with a rusty bell. And her double collar is made of cotton print of hearts diamond, clubs and clovers, and black netting underneath. And of course, she sits atop an ole' rusty bed spring.

So that is it for now. I will be trying to keep up the posting, and surely I will show some of my Santa's and Christmas Angels and Snowmen too. So stay tuned...
