In a early post I stated that I was having problems with my van. It's running okay now, but it's days are numbered and my husband and I are done sinking $$$ into it. It has over 110,000 miles on it. So I thought I would list somethings on ebay to help off set the cost of a "newer" van sometime this late spring. I don't have any crafts listed at this time (maybe I'll get there before I run out of steam). Right now it will be patterns and supplies. Some of these patterns are from my stash and some I purchased second hand. click here to go to my ebay page. I will be listing about 10 items each day. Some of my auctions don't state this but I will combine on shipping. Right now I'm using paypal for shipping so everything comes with delivery confirmation. Thanks for taking a peek.

I finished up four of these black dolls. I made the dresses from vintage flour and feed sacks that I have been collecting for awhile. This doll is made from a pattern by Chestnut Junction. I still haven't made it to the store because of car problems - I'm hoping to make it tomorrow. I have the cutest kitchen table & chairs for the store and some other neat handmades.

Today I turn 39 for the first time. I love birthdays and I am so lucky I get to spend it with the people I love most. Each year gets better and better. Although last year I got to spend my actual birthday in Disneyland with 80 degree weather - it is pretty hard to beat that. Today we are going out for breakfast and then to see The Princess and the Frog with a couple of friends and then dinner at my mother in-laws. It is going to be a super day!

I finished a couple of more dolls for the store and two more stitcheries. I also repainted these neat sewing drawers I picked up at a garage sale a while back. I will be dropping these off items off later on today.
Here is the before of set of drawers and the after:
And the Annies

My family and I are big fans of Disneyland and are planning on going this summer. I thought my son and I might do a day of volunteering early this summer and participate in this fun program. I was lucky enough last year to go on my birthday and receive a gift card ( I was already an annual pass member). Anyway enjoy!

Well, I am finally back to crafting now - it always takes me a while to get back into the swing of things after the holidays. I started these dolls a couple of days before Christmas and just finished them tonight. I am going to the Girl's Back Porch to drop off Valentines goodies and other treasures I've managed to pick up. I hope to get some more dolls made soon, my space needs some more handmades and I love to make Annies this time of year. These dolls are made from a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern. I'm not sure what price I am going to put on them yet - they sure were fun to make, but they were also a lot of work.
