It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

In my house that is! That's right the decorations are up, christmas tunes are playing on the sirius radio and presents are finding there way under the tree.

Here is the fireplace in our family room

The Dining room

The stockings hung oh so carefully. I have to finish the other banister with more garland.

I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. We ate until our jeans popped! The little pup got her fill too.

Friday I got my wisdom teeth out and believe it or not I'm in no pain, my jaw is just sore. It's weird to feel four holes in your mouth though. I'm happy that I got away with no pain. I'm still taking it easy and relaxing. I'm taking advantage of it by crafting away. I have some new stuff in the Shop stop by for a look.

TTFN Enjoy the weekend! K

Little by Little...

These will be finding there way in the shop.

Has it really been that long....

Since my last post? Hello bandits. I've been so busy with family, work and crafting I've haven't a minute to stop by and "chat" I have a ton of new stuff to share on the crafting front. I'm starting to up load pictures now. I hope to get them in the shop asap since they are mostly Christmas items.

Are you ready for Turkey day! I am I just love hanging out with family and eating until your busting! I have to get my fill that day, on Friday I will be going to the oral surgeon to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled.

Long story short I cracked one of my wisdom teeth on a tootsie roll, how you may ask? Good question after going to my dentist I've come to find out my wisdom teeth are slowly decaying. I must of had a slight fracture and the tootsie roll did the trick. My dentist doesn't pull teeth so I went to any oral surgeon for an evaluation and decided if he is going to pull one do them all and get it over in one shot. I know I'm crazy. They aren't impacted so I don't expect to have too much pain. Eating is going to stink b/c you can only have soft foods.

I woke up today to a lovely email from an etsy member who featured me in a treasury

We'll back to editing pictures. Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.

Oh and I already decorated for Christmas, tree and all. Only because I usually do it this coming weekend and with the surgery I'll be in no mood to do it.

My Creative Chaos

Hello Bandits! I have a little treat for you! A peak inside my creative space. It's a work in process as far as 1. organization and 2. all out decorating. We plan on painting the entire top floor of our house next summer.

Here is my creative mess from Sunday. I normally don't have my ironing board in the room but I use it when I paint shirts and I happened to be painting a shirt sunday for a lovely loyal customer. After I finished the shirt I moved all my works in process to the board to give me more room on my desk. OK so here is picure 1.

My closet is FULL of supplies lots of t shirts in bins from when I was heavily painting shirts on ebay. A roll cart with paint, stencils, paper blah blah. I want to eventually get a nice bookcase with bins that are labeled. I have no idea what is where and usually go through several boxes before I find what I need. I also have tons of stuff still in bags from AC moore and Michaels.

In the corner of the room is a little cut out that perfectly fits a bookcase we had in our apartment. I love my bookcase. It holds all the books Joe and I have read over the years plus drying or finished projects LOL. Oh and one of Zoey's beds has to be there. She likes to supervise. She also likes to stand on her back feet and look out the window.

Next is a close up of what's going on, on top of the ironing board. Some may become gifts for xmas or wind up on Etsy there are some wood blocks I covered with yummy christmas paper, a wood doll half painted. and one ornament finished. If you notice I tend to start many projects at once.

Lastly is my desk. I really shouldn't be crafting on it but I don't have anywhere else to do my projects yet. Joe will kill me if he looks at it closely. It has some war wounds :) I have some pendents in the works, more ornaments, blocks and dolls.

There you have it my lovely space to create that more often than not looks like a bomb hit it. Next year I hope to show you a more organized and smartly decorated work space. Do you have a spot devoted just for you to create? Show me! I love looking at creative spaces. Inspires me, I hope I inspired you!

I almost forgot. Here is the shirt I was working on. Beast from Beauty and the beast.

5 Things I can't live without...

Hello Bandits I had a very productive crafting weekend. I took a picture of my crafting mess and will post a picture tomorrow. It's quite a site.

I thought I would share 5 things I just can't live without. Here they are...

1. Peanut butter(how could you think not?) I eat peanut butter with a banana every morning.

2. Chap stick - I must have one in every room of my house and 2 in my bag

3. The unconditional support of my husband.

4. Coffee - Enough said

5. Sirius Satellite Radio - I literally can't listen to regular radio anymore. My portable goes with me every where. The work day would drag with out it.

What can't you live without?
