Looking forward to 2010

I hope everone had a wonderful holiday and a Merry Christmas. I had a great day with family, friends and in the evening I went to see the new movie Sherlock. I really liked it alot. The movie theaters were packed! I guess thats the new thing to do on Christmas night these days. I am really looking forward to starting the new year. This is a year that has had many good things, but a very hard one for me. There is nothing like a fresh start and a new attitude. I normally dont make New Years Resolutions, but this year I am. I hope your New Year is an exceptional one. I wish each of you a Happy, Healthy, and Successful New Year! May all your dreams come true :)

This is a few gifts that I made for my sister this year for Christmas. :) The cat on the purse is her cat Lily. It was a photo transfered on fabric. Lily likes having her picture taken. My sisters living room has a little red love seat and she uses the leopard print as accents, so I though why not a leopard cupcake pillos. lOL

Quilt and Stitch Ornament Exchange

I participated in a really fun ornament exchange that the Quilt and Stitch Marketplace had. I made cupcake and ice cream cone ornaments for my contribution. The three I received are so sweet. I hope they will do this again. The first one is a sled from my friend Nancy at . She also had a bag of wonderful potporri sitting in the sleigh. The second is an ornament made from folded papers. Its very intricate and detailed. I just love it. Its really nice on my tree and it was made by Rebecca Dean from Utah. The third one is a sweet knitted hat and mittens made by Liz Sampson from Norwood New York.
This is my Grandaughter Mya at her ballet perfomance last week. She did awesome, of course. LOL She is really growing up fast.
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy, Healthy and Successful New Year! Gail

Earrings and Fabric ~ Oh My :)

I have been as busy as Santas Elves the last couple weeks. But while I was working on some gifts and orders I made 3 pairs of earrings. I havent decided if they are for me or my website. LOL The first set of 3 is for one of my best customers and she is only 6 years old. Her name is Lily and she is the grand daughter of my friend Marie. By the way,,, if you love yummy, soft, beautifuly fragrant soap please visit her website.

I was out trim shopping and I was at this store called SAS. If you are from the Tempe area of Phoenix you probably have heard of this place. Its been here forever and you can get lost for hours. The prices are unbelievable too. Alot of trims are .25 and .49 cents a yard. I stumbled upon the designer samples that they were selling for 4.99 for each set of samples. My sweet friend that I was with, Pat bought these for me. They are plenty big enough for the projects I do and I am really looking forward to creating with these!

I hope you are all about ready for the big day. I dont think I am, but its all good. This week I have a ballet recital and school program for my grand daughter Mya and a cookie baking day on friday,,,so fair warning,,,Grandma alert!! My next post will probably be Grandma brag pictures. LOL Have a great week.... gail

Quilt and Stitch ornament swap

I got to participate in a Christmas ornament swap with the ladies at the Quilt and Stitch Marketplace. I have already received my first one in the mail. Dont you love getting suprise gifts in the mail. Especially if it comes on a day with no bills. :) I received this sweet hat and mittens made by Liz Sampson. I love them,,, they are so adorable. I hope she likes what I sent her. I will post the others as they come.

I went with my daughter April and Mikey to her holiday party at the dental complex where she works. It was a very nice party. Great food, entertainment, Santa Clause and the best part, a chocolate fountain! I have been doing my best to get ready for Christmas. I have a few gifts to get done and then let the wrapping begin! I hope you all enjoy your week. (()) gail
