New Shop Section - Doll Clothes

Today, I added a new section to my shop, Doll Clothes!  I recently began creating accessories for a friend's daughters' American Girl doll, and I had so much fun that I wanted to share these with everyone else!

So, here's my first completed listing, Handmade Hat and Scarf Set for 18 inch Dolls.
Wouldn't this set make a wonderful stocking stuffer for your daughter or granddaughter?  This set can be made in any color/s.  These sets are so quick and easy to make that the turnaround time is lightning fast!  Want to buy this?  Click here:  Doll Clothes

First Day of School!

The new school year started today, and my daughters were less than thrilled to go back to 7th and 8th grade.  But being the corny mom that I am, I begged them to let me take a picture, and they grudgingly obliged under the condition that I don't post the picture on facebook.  They would rather die than read my nerdy blog, so I guess it's safe to post it here.  (hehe) 

With new clothes (that actually look like old clothes-but that's what's cool these days!), and new haircuts, including a feather hair extension, they stood against the dining room wall so that I could click this ONE photo of them.  They are growing up so quickly, I can't stand it.  I already miss them!

Day #3 of the Like My Fanpage Treasury Challenge, and here's two more entries, which are true works of art!  I love them both!  I have the difficult task of judging and choosing just one winner from all these gorgeous treasuries!  They are all so great!  I so much appreciate everyone's efforts in creating these gorgeous treasuries!

A challenge entry with my snowmen

Day #2 of the Like My Fanpage Treasury Challenge on Etsy, featuring my snowman couple.  The latest entry was created by Carice Monroy of ChatteJolie.  I love her treasury because it celebrates the art of crochet, which is obviously something that is close to my heart.  If you have a chance, please visit her shop and see her beautiful selection of vintage items! Here's the link to her shop, and a picture of the treasury she created.

Crochet Flower Appliques for CraftsHandmade Scrapbooking and Craft Supplies!  I've created these crochet flowers from cotton thread.  Aren't they pretty?  At 1 inch, they are the perfect size for scrapbook pages, embellishing clothing and hats, cardmaking, etc.  They are dark and light pink, and come in a set of 8 for just $4.00!  That's only $.50 per handmade flower!  You won't find these in the craft store!  To purchase these and to check out my other handmade items, please visit my etsy shop here:


Handmade Snow Couple

I have listed a brand new item in my shop, crochet snowman couple! This item is close to my heart, because the pattern is a very old one that has been passed down in my family. I remember these snowmen being a decoration in our home when I was younger. So it's one of my favorite items to create, and I'm so glad it's almost Christmas so that I can share them with everyone else on the web! They are made with acrylic yarn, over styrofoam balls. Here's a picture:

You can see these and other great handmade items for your home here:

While you are in this section of my shop, check out the other sections as well.  I have crochet hats, blankets, pet items, toys, etc.
