Friday Fun

I wanted to share a really great item I purchased at the craft show I was in last weekend. I love it so much and it went great with my dress. These lovely brooches are made by a very sweet and talented lady Jen Menkhaus . It was really nice to meet her in person. Her shop Littlest Bean is one of my favorites on Etsy. You should check out her shop sometime. Have a wonderful weekend :).

Thursday...almost Friday

What a week it has been. The weather has been very good to us out here in VA and I'm looking forward to wearing another dress tomorrow :). I've been able to finish a bunch of sewing projects this week and I wanted to share one of them with you. I started making these cute little birdies out of vintage fabric. I love them and I hope others will love them as well. I think they would be a great accent to a baby nursery or any other place in a home. I have one sitting on a bookshelf in our place. I've put some up in my shop.

The Weekend

So I had a very eventful weekend. Sunday I participated in the
Spring Baba-bing craft show at Plant Zero in Richmond, VA. The day before the show, I was at home sewing my caboose off! My mom even joined in the fun and helped stuff some owls. I was so relieved that I was able to get all my sewing done before the show. Anyway on Sunday my mother and I drove down to Richmond for the show. It was raining like crazy and we got lost for about an hour,but we finally made it. The show turned out to be a success and my owls were a big hit!!! I met so many great vendors at the show who made some really awesome stuff. Even one of my favorite bloggers/artist was there, Betz White! She brought some of her cute felted cupcakes and other fun goodies. It was very nice to meet her in person. Below are some pics of the show and a few links to some of the artists that I met. Hopefully I'll be able to do the show again next year.

Check these out... her jewelry!
Skull Knocker...very talented artist!
Big Pink Curlers....great pictures!
Littlest Bean...I had to have one of her brooches!
Spaghetti Kiss...bought some t-shirts for the them!

The Show

What a lovely day...

I hope you had a great weekend. I sure did, the weather was gorgeous , spent a lot of time with my family and was able to get some sewing done. We took Orion to the park and I took some great pictures of him. He loves the swing and going down the slide on his belly. He's getting so big and wants to explore everything at his fingertips. Below are some pics at the park. I put more on my flickr page.

In other news, I am working on updating my shop very soon. I have a craft show coming up, so I've decided to wait until next week to put post anything new. I'm really excited about the new stuff I've been working on. It's going to be very hard for me to part with a lot of these new Owls and other plush toys, but I know they will be going to some loving places. Well I must go, I will be back very soon!

Have a great week,

A Very Large Owl

I finally finished the large owl I was working on this past Sunday. I'm happy with the results and would love to make more of these "pillow sized" owls. I even put Orion in his new tee that I made for him. He seemed very happy in it! Have a wonderful Tuesday :).

The Weekend

This weekend went by very fast! Saturday I was in a craft show, which went really well. It was for women who own craft businesses in VA. I met a wonderful group of talented ladies and I hope to do another craft show with them.

Sunday Project - A Very Large Owl

I started working on this Sunday afternoon and I still have a bit to finish. Someone had asked if I could make an 18x18 owl. This owl is HUGE and its the biggest one of done. I will make a few more to put in my shop. Below are some pics of it. I will post the finished one probably tomorrow.

Rose and Daisy

So I just finished these two little owls that I will be putting up in my shop soon. They are a bit smaller than the other owls I make. These are better for smaller kids (3-6 months). I'm also working on some bigger owls. I'll have those posted in a few days. Things have been busy at home, so I haven't had much time to blog. But I hope everyone is having a great week so far. Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!!!
