Happy Monday! Annies on Parade

Good afternoon friends! We sure had some crazy weather in North Carolina this past weekend! Last week the temps were in the high 70's low 80's  and Sunday we were having snow showers! I swear the weather is in need of some medication this year!! LOL

Last week I was busy making some new spring time raggedy's. I love the way they turned out! On my work table now are more bunnies and ducks.  I will be in a local shop soon so I need to build up my stock!  I have so many ideas floating through my head (they normally come when I'm trying to go to sleep).  I can't wait to get started on them.

Thank you to everyone for the sweet comments about my brother. I miss him everyday. But I want to make him proud, so I'm trying to push through and follow my dream.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!   Karen

Back at it!

I have been missing for a few months. I just couldn't bring myself to post anything, and I wasn't really  working on anything.  You see in November I lost my brother. It put me in a tailspin that I didn't know if I was ever going to be back to myself. I had no desire to create, I was having a hard time just functioning with every day life. I miss him so very much! 

After a few months to reflect, and a chance to grieve, I am doing what my brother Kevin would have wanted me to do. I'm chasing my dream once again. I have been hard at work. hoping to make my brother proud!  I've been making several new items, that are available for purchase.  I will try to be better at getting back here and keeping the few people that follow me up to date.

Back to work!

Time to get back to work! 
 I didn't accomplish as much as I would have liked to last week. My little guy had to have surgery. He was such a brave little boy, and this momma is darned proud! He had to take a week off of school, so I wasn't able to get as much done as I had hoped. But I did manage to get this pile of ornaments sewn and stuffed, and quite a bit of it needle sculpted! It's amazing how much you can do at nap time when you put your mind to it!  This week Mikey is back in school, so I will be finishing up these ornaments and moving onto other things!

Snowmen and Santa's

I believe that creating for Christmas has to be my favorite thing in the world to do. Memories from my childhood come rushing in. Yes I know we haven't even gotten through Halloween or Thanksgiving yet! But for me I could create for Christmas all year round. Here are a few of my pieces that I have done recently. Remember you can find me on facebook  for all your shopping needs! Have a wonderful week!

We made it through Matthew!

It has been one heck of a stressful week. For a week we have been hearing and prepairing for hurricane Matthew. This storm had me nervous! I am originally from Buffalo NY, so we don't deal with hurricanes, we deal with blizzards and ice storms!!!  I have been in NC for 15 years now, and I don't ever think I will get comfortable with these types of storms!  Thank God the hurricane, changed it's path somewhat, and we only had minimal damage. We lost some shingles from the roof, and our power went out at some point in the night, but was back on in the morning when we woke up. My heart goes out to all of those that weren't so lucky and have sever damage, some still without power, and dealing with terrible flooding.

I didn't get as much done last week as I would have liked to, I wasn't as focused as I should have been. I did manage to get one order completed, and another one almost done. I am waiting on a shipment of bells so I can finish it up. Now onto the next of my orders, and hopefully I will be able to sneak in a couple of new snowmen, and get my nativity done.  Thank you all for stopping by!!

Helloooooooo Out there~!

I'm late again posting this week! I have been busy making snowmen! I guess that is the only way that I'm going to get any relief from this heat in NC!!! I'm a Buffalo girl living in a NC world. My body knows that it's supposed to be jeans and hoodie weather, but NC weather sure doesn't want to cooperate! It's 85 degrees today!  I am truly thinking that it is time to look into moving farther north! I miss the cool fall days, the leaves changing and to be honest, I miss the snow!  I'm tired of summers that are so hot that you don't even venture outside. I want summers that you can enjoy, and changes in the seasons!  I want to go Christmas shopping when it is snowing, and have a fire in the fire place on cool fall evenings. I guess I'm home sick.... Any how here are the snowmen that I have been working on. I hope you enjoy!  Don't forget you can always find me on Facebook. Have a wonderful week!
