Some new items..

Hi!  I made this pillow because I couldn't NOT make it.  I got the idea in my head in the middle of the night on Tuesday?, and I just had to make it.  :)

It's available here.

There are five new quilted list-makers too.

Rainbow...available here

Russian Nesting Dolls available here
(one of my favorite quotes ever!)

I made this one using Hoot by the owl :)  Available here

Stripes and Polka Dots, available here

Fairies and Mushrooms, available here

Happy Thursday!


UPDATE: I just opened up an email from Samaritan's Purse about the Alabama Tornado Response. God very quickly let me know I was to donate any and all proceeds from the items below straight to the Disaster Relief Units.
Sometimes I hear Him in whispers, sometimes it's loud and clear. :)

Virtual Coffee

If you were coming over for coffee this morning, I would direct you to my little coffee station.  French vanilla creamer and sugar?  Yes, please!

We would go outside on the pool patio to sit.  The couches are full of laundry but it's nice out here in the morning anyway.

I would probably apologize about my yucky cushions, and then if would confide that I am terrified to sew new covers for them.  I've never sewn with outdoor fabric, and I think it might be a lot of work, and do I have to pipe them all?....  And then you might think, wow, she really talks a lot!

We would be looking at the pool deck, and I would be glad that I made the kids put away all the swim toys after their swim session yesterday.  And then, even though I am so enjoying adult time, I might feel a tiny twinge of missing them. 

If you were here for coffee and conversation I would probably lament over the fact that my baby boy is turning 11 this weekend.  I would probably show you some pictures of us in the beginning...

How is this picture almost 11 years old?

...and I would brag about him a little...:) hehe

I would show you the date that this chair has with a can of yellow spray paint.  You might try to talk me out of it, but all of a sudden yellow is my favorite color.  I want little splashes of it everywhere. 

After our coffee is gone and you have to leave anyway, I would drag you into my newish craft room.  I would beg you to sew me a new ironing board cover and curtains, and then you would laugh and say, do it yourself.  I would tell you about my new pinterest obsession and how I can't stop thinking about how to set up this room just right, and then I would realize I did all the talking today, dangit!

Will you come again?
Next time I will keep my mouth closed and let you get a word in edge-wise  :)

Linking up here:)

Shop Update!

I've got a lot to show and tell today!  Mother's Day is less than 2 weeks away!  For a safe arrival, all orders that you want before Mother's Day need to be ordered by May 1, which is the end of this week.  I can still take a couple more custom orders, so if you are interested contact me asap!

Here is a new print for you...pop it into a matted frame and you've got a beautiful gift.
8 x 10 print available here

I'm excited that I've been doing a little fabric shopping and I have some new checkbook covers for you!

I had two leftover from my last batch that are on sale now for $10...check those out here.  

I want you to know that I do listen to your feedback...I have gotten quite a few emails requesting to be notified if the quilted list makers ever go on sale.  I've decided to change the price for you so they are more affordable, so they are all priced at $20 now. Here is a custom one I finished this week...isn't it a sweet gift?

I'll be back on Wednesday with some more new quilted list makers.  :)
See you then!

Doodle Bug

I do a lot of doodling. :) This time around, my doodle turned into my Sunday Scripture print for this week.

prints will not have copyright watermark on them :)

8 x 10 prints are available here.


Just for fun, I took pictures of the process.
Here it is in the pencil doodling stage...

When I realized how much I liked it, I traced the lines with a fine black marker.

And then went on to use colored pencils. 

Did you have a nice Easter?
We went to church, had an Easter egg hunt, and then spent time with family swimming and eating way too much!  :)
Happy Monday everyone!

Happy Easter

My weight has been lifted...
I feel His grace and I am happy and excited for tomorrow...

I hope you have a beautiful Easter!

He himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed.
- 1 Peter 2:24

Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day and Good Friday!
Ashton is our leading Earth Day Activist and has requested a trip to the local playground.  Everyone is required to bring a plastic bag to pick up garbage.
It is a request that I cannot refuse!  :)
Do you do anything to celebrate Earth Day?
