welcome to our crazy world

Just a few days….

I’m going through my mental checklists for things I need to take with me on my trip… I’m trying to pack light, let’s see how well that goes, I’m thinking I might have to grab one of my market bags to stick stuff into when I finish it on this trip because there’s no way that my little Kerropi bag can fit all my gear and finished projects.  It does great for most things and I like that it matches my computer bag, but this is a little further trip than to my craft groups.

Right now I’m scrambling to finish up two more stuffed animals for my Dad’s Grandkids (Via my stepmother) I’ll be seeing them next week for the first time so thought I should bring them presents at least.  Which means I’m probably going to be working on something for myself in the car.  I leave Tuesday and have some baking to do before then as well.

The animals I’m making, so fat I have a bunny, and bear done.  I’m thinking an elephant next, not sure what to do for the last one for the kids, though I’m making a black cat for a friend of mine because she thought they were adorable and begged me for one.  I’ve owed her a present for a little while so I’m sending her one.  Might make a little toy for it to hold too.  I’ll try to transfer my scribbles into patterns for these because they really are adorable so far.

I still need to send my pattern tester my basket pattern so that she can test it out.  I’m so behind in everything!  Though on the third next month I’ll be posting every day, we’ll be getting more items up I’m going to take a break from creating (Okay at least at a slower pace) so we can get some room around here.  As much as I want to do a craft show this year I don’t think we’re going to have the time or energy for it.  Though I will try to scope a few out just to see what the local flavor is on the crafting front.  Reminds me I have to snag the toy box from the attic because I think it would be a cute prop for these new toys I’m making.  I’m almost always looking for great props for pictures.

And well my stomach’s grumbling so going to jet to go snag some food and get started on some of that baking.  So much to do so little time!

– Yes this would be Nicky running around like a nightmare Turkey day main dish!

Life in general

Let’s see, I know it’s been about a month since I last posted, the set I talked about last time is now on it’s way to the happy new mother (Beautiful healthy baby boy by the way!  Congrats Ash!)  Since then I found out that my cousin had a baby (Congrats Jodi she’s beautiful!) thinking I might have to send something her way for the baby and the other kids if I can find time to whip things together in time (I’m so late on ANY of my Holiday crafts).
