Holiday Fun




I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Ours was packed with fun and family. We had so much food that it would not fit in the fridge! Needless to say I ate more then I should have. But it was a great time for all.
Here are some of the pictures. The little turkeys were a gift to my daughters 2ND grade class!

Living Crafts Magazine



I found a wonderful magazine today while I was suppose to be shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. It is Living Crafts, a rich mix of fiber arts, toys, candles and more. I also went to there web site at http://www.livingcrafts.com/directory.php
and found a list of several shops. one shop at www.dewitteengel.com is packed with kits, embroidery supplies and 100% wool felt. My heart jumped when I saw the felt. My little local fabric store here at the beach is no longer going to carry it.
So it looks like Thanksgiving decorating will have to wait until I get my order done. Hope they take Pay pal!!

Gingerbread Girl







If you want to have a unique Christmas display this year why not think pink. It seems to be a great holiday color. Also, I have been seeing a ton of soft browns in the stores.



Here is a little pink Gingerbread girl that you can find at my shop www.mommylion.etsy.com
Oh, and here is a little mouse illustration in the making!

Christmas baking











Time to star making Christmas cookies! These are handmade and ready to go into stockings or to top a package.




My softies are all handmade. No sewing machine is used in the process. These little treats are beaded with glass beads and sequins. You can see them at my Etsy shop. They are sold with two tied together or separately. More are on the way!

Snow Dream Girl In The Making




It does not snow too often here in Virginia Beach. Living near the ocean keeps it just a little too warm to snow. I love snow! I lived in Buffalo New York for many years, so I have had my share of shoveling snow and snowball fights.


When I wanted to create a snow theme for a doll, I went to several fabric stores and fell in love with some soft flannel fabrics.


Here she is in the making...Snowflake will be in my Etsy shop soon. Stop by and have a look at what is new. http://www.mommylion.etsy.com/
