My Naked Kingdom

Welcome to the Kingdom of Nakedness.....
I told you that I have a lot of projects in the works. Look at all these nekked babies sitting around freezin their hineys off. These are just a few of my projects in the works. I have set them all out so they can look at me & beg to be finished. LOL I am hoping, with them sitting here, I will continue to work on them one at a time until they all are dressed & ready for new homes. :)

I still have four other painting projects that I am in the middle of too. Multi tasking is the word for the day! Hahaha

Well, lets see how far I get today! Happy crafting!!!!

So Much Work

so little time!!!! It seems that the holiday season has kicked into full force. I have so much to do to get ready for the upcoming season & holiday shows. I have my first show in a month & am so not ready! Argh! I will be in & out until I get some stuff whipped up.

I am also trying to coordinate a Halloween/Birthday party for my son Travis' 10th birthday. We are trying to pull it off as a carnival theme. I am super excited about it!!! We are planning all kinds of games & contests. I want to try & get some of the props for the party built too. We have a cake walk planned along with bobbing for apples, fishing game, sandbag throw & costume contest! The kids are really looking forward to it. I will share pictures when it gets closer. What are some of your plans for Halloween? I am looking for suggestions for games & contests too. So email me!

I am not sure if I told you that my Dad & Stepmom are visiting from San Diego...but she brought her camera up to snap some pictures of my oldest son Taylor for his senior pictures. We went up to the Indian Mission here in town & took a few. They came out spectacular. It will be so hard to choose. I also had her snap some candid family ones. I think they came out cute for last minute planning. :)

Well I best get back to work.....will pop in soon to share completed projects. I have set a goal to get a few things done this week. Well a girl can dream cant she??? Hope your day is productive & fun! Until later.......

Good Saturday Afternoon

Well, last night was my first quilting class. It was so much fun! I haven't taken a quilting class in quite some time. I have had a stack of these gorgeous pink & brown fat quarters that have been calling my name. :) I have been saving them for something special. Well, after racking my brain on what to do with them...I finally decided to do the Turning Twenty Around The Block by Tricia Cribbs. It is such a cute pattern. I have pictures of the fabrics...aren't they cute??

Today I am determined to get downstairs & get some painting done too. These fairs are fast on my tail & I am far from ready. Hubby has to work a double shift so I should have lots of ME time to work. Will share some of the projects once I get them completed.

Oh I wanted to share the cutest gift ever. I am in a Halloween Swap in one of my Ebay groups. We are to exchange Halloween treat sacks filled with one prim item of choice & goodie treats. I was so excited to go out to my front porch & find a package. Here is my awesome gift from my friend Denni of Denni Doodles. She is so darn cute! I just love her. I just purchased this pattern from Denni this week. Thank you Denni. :) Go visit her shop & check out all her awesome patterns & dollies. The link is in my fav's.
Well I better get back to work. Hope your day is full of fun & most productive.

What Fun...

we had yesterday. My hubby & I spent the day together & had a blast. I was so excited because I got to go fabric shopping. (My absolute most favorite thing to do next to scrapbook goodie shopping). *Ü* I am thrilled that I found the Michael Miller "Dick & Jane" line. I have been wanting it forever. I have a new dollie in mind for this set. I also found some gorgeous Christmas fabric for some dollies to come for the holidays. Aren't the colors rich & beautiful. I am always on a search for great black homespuns. I found these & snatched them up right away. I cant wait to get back to work on some upcoming designs. Will be back soon hopefully with a new dollie to show off. *Ü* Have a great day!

My First Post

Woo Hoo....I finally have it done. I have been playing with this blog trying to get it just right. :) I know it still needs some work. For someone who is is completely lacking in computer skills....I am thrilled to be up & running!

Now that the kids are back in school I am hoping to have more time for crafting & visiting everyoneelses blogs. I cannot wait! Well I better get back to work. I have dollies that need dressing & some seasonal door greeters that need sanding & painting. Hope to be back soon. Have a great night!
