Bloggy Love

Special thanks to Starr at Grandia Road for the mention on her blog. Thank you!!

I have a few blogs I like to check out now and then - I'll have to get my list together so I can share the love.

I debated a long time before starting my own blog. I don't always have anything profound to share, sometimes I just have something I want to say, or I have something I want to show off. I don't know if anyone else even cares to read about it!! LOL. But hopefully I get better at it. I have so many things I'd like to share - tutorials, ideas, photos... I just need to get my crap together and DO it!!

Don't forget to enter the contest below. Make sure you are reachable in case you are the winner!!

AND I should have something else up for winning this weekend. You'll have to check back to see what it is!!

I just received notice that my Twilight Set of hardback books has shipped! Eek. A day before the release date, so that's great. I'm happy.

Been sewing something 'new' for the shop. I call them Zippity-Do-Dads. They are a variation on my littlest pouches with the zipper down the center. These have a 1" base, a strap, and a swivel clip. So they can be worn through a belt or belt loop, on a purse strap, or just used as a wristlet. So cute!!

I'm also working on some 'special' zippered pouches (hopefully) for the shop. It depends on how they turn out... And I wanted to try the same basic theme for some new totes/handbags. I'll see how it goes.

You Say It's Your Birthday...

It's My Birthday Too!!!

I remember when I was younger, 40 seemed OLD. Now that I am here, 40 really isn't that bad.

AND I had nice birthday presents. Money is always good. LOL. I want to get a new MP3 player. Now I just have to make up my mind which one I want. Decisions, decisions. My husband got up early and headed to Circuit City to get me a Wii Fit. He also gave me an Edward (Twilight) poster, and a Twilight calendar. The last two items were really no brainers considering I dragged him into the store and showed him exactly what I wanted!! AND I got to pre-order the Twilight Saga Hardcover Boxed Set.

I feel the need to spread my birthday joy, so I am giving away a FREEBIE. Just leave a comment and be entered to win. Be sure you are reachable if you are the winner. This is what I am giving away - a Zippity-Do-Dad. It is 5" x 4" and is made from 2 Amy Butler prints. It has a strap, a d-ring, and a spring clip so you can attach it to your belt, belt loop, purse strap, or you can just carry it. I will pick a winner on November 1.

Final Twilight Trailer!!!

Oh how I love this!! I just hope the movie lives up to all the hype!!

More Autumny Goodness

I love autumn. I love a bit of a chill in the air. The sky is always so BLUE and pretty. It's so beautiful when the leaves start changing colors, but I'm so sad when the trees are bare all winter.

I managed to make 3 new purses this week. I have 2 listed already, the 3rd one should be up soon.

I also have a bunch of fabric cut out for zippered pouches. The kind with the zipper down the middle, and with a clip to attach to.... whatever. I'm making them a little different this time around - it's hard to explain, so you'll just have to wait until they are listed to see how they turn out.
