Family stockings

Some of the stockings that I had made for the Christmas in Anchorage show ended up hanging from our mantel this year! I am so glad that my family liked them. I had a great Christmas holiday! I hope that you did, too!

Here is the second of the four custom dolls that I have created lately. This is Erin!

Erin loves animals so much, hence the dogs and cats on her jumper. Because of this, I had to be sure to make her a special friend- a little kitten named Caramel.

I hope Erin and Caramel will make a little girl very happy on Christmas morning!

I have had 4 orders for custom dolls for Christmas. Today I wanted to share one of them.

This little doll is named Olivia. She is the sweetest little ballerina, dressed in pastel colors. I just love her facial expression!

She is ready to dance into her owner's heart on Christmas day!

I hope the little lady receiving her thinks she's special!

Christmas in Anchorage 2011

On December 3rd I did the Christmas in Anchorage show for the first time! I was very proud of my table display and had a good helper that day!

I was even able to whip up some more Christmas dolls for this show, that I just love! An elf named Holly, and a little Gingerbread boy.

They looked so cute sitting with Ingrid on the table display.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

At least I hope these stockings will be! I am making them for the Christmas in Anchorage show next Saturday. I am hoping that people love them as much as I do!

Each stocking has different fabrics and trims, so each one is unique!

I had a blast picking out the fabrics for these with my Mom. She has a pretty good eye for color and is very supportive of my crafty biz! I like to think that the care that goes into each one of my handmade items makes them special, and that people will be excited to see what I've made.

Other things I am working on for the December 3rd show include more Elf dolls, gingerbread ornaments and plush, and zip pouches. I've got a busy week ahead of me, but I love crafting!

Small Business Saturday

I am way behind on my Christmas gift list. I haven't made or purchased one thing yet! So, even though I haven't been shopping yet, I wanted to post some cool things I have purchased in the past from local businesses, in honor of Small Business Saturday.

J and I picked out 2 awesome art prints from Mad Pixel at a local art show. He picked the cat dreaming about sushi while I picked the sunny print of our neighborhood- Germantown!

I got some note cards at the same art show from ModTod that feature some of the neighborhoods from Louisville, KY, the city where I live.

Last Christmas, I picked up a cute hair barrette with this little snowman at Just Creations. I decided it would be better as a pin, so I refashioned it.

Other cool places to shop in Louisville include WHY Louisville, Carmichael's, and Scout.

What will you buy for Small Business Saturday? Share your favorite independent shops with me!

P.S. D.I.Y. Louisville is hosting a giveaway of a fabric tote made by yours truly. Visit their page to check it out.

Christmas stockings!

Three years ago I made 2 simple matching stockings for my boyfriend J and I to celebrate our first Christmas together. They were made from some red, white, and blue IKEA fabric. Every year, we pull them out for Christmas. I had originally intended to make new stockings every year because I thought that it would be a fun, visual catalog of our Christmases together. Last year I wanted to make a Mary Jane stocking for me and a Converse stocking for him. I never did get around to making any more stockings... but since I am doing the Christmas in Anchorage craft show on December 3rd, I thought it was the perfect time to start up again! J may even get a fresh new stocking out of it!

St. Margaret Mary craft show

I did my first real arts and craft show today! I have set up before at events, but this was my first time being with all artists and crafters. A few friends from D.I.Y. Louisville mentioned the St. Margaret Mary craft show to me, so I decided to go for it! The show was today and it went pretty well.

My good friend Amanda was there with me, which was great. It really makes things easier to have help. Here I am at my booth!

Halloween Goodness

I love Halloween! (Get ready for picture overload!) Halloween is absolutely my most favorite holiday of the year! It's only natural then, that I have collected several Halloween decorations AND made lots of little crafts for the season. So far it has been a rainy transition into Fall, and while I appreciate the cooler weather, I hope it slows down a little. It'll be Winter before I know it!

I bought these cute vintage looking decorations (owl and cat) at World Market at the end of the season last year when they were on sale! I'm so glad to finally be able to pull them out for display!



These little cuties are from a local boutique in Louisville called Scout on Market. I could not resist! They had so many cute figures it was hard to decide, but I went with the witch and pumpkin kids.

I updated my booth at Unique Creations with lots of Halloween goodies. There are plush pumpkins, trick or treat candy bags, and character piggy banks. I also have lots of witch dollies in progress and will take them there as soon as they are done. I would like to list the rest of them on my etsy shop.

Today I put the finishing touches on a ballerina doll! Her name is Amelie, and she will soon have more little ballerina friends. The dancer dolls will be headed to the Fall Registration at The Vision Dance Center on Sunday, August 28th, where I hope to sell them to a few good homes!

I have to say that I think that Amelie is my best work yet! Plus, her little ballet slippers crack me up!
