I will miss you aunt B.
So in reflection, at least those of us who think we are too busy to say to those who mean a lot to us, we should take note, and express what we want to and need to say, cuz’ ya never know when it will be too late.
I also want to send out good wishes to First Mate Tia who is a dear friend to my BFF Moon Sister. Moon colored pieces of her hair pink in honor of Tia. You’re in my prayers First mate!
Till next time my crafty gal pals, Have a good one!

Yep that there is a bag of unfinished Crows! I have about 30 or so of the little critters. My fingers are tired! They are all stuffed and ready for paint and distressing, then a good dunk into a mixture of dark coffee and Cinnamon. Then I will dress them all up with a hat and rusty bell (which will also take a dunk in said mixture).
These guys did great at the Homestead this year.
Here is an example of one when they are done!
I have been making these dudes for a while now, I think I found the pattern in a issue of some ornament book/magazine. the original pattern is in my storage, so I had to improvise, I swiped my moms from the christmas tree and made a new pattern. ;0)
Till next time my Crafty gal pals, Have a good one!

I made my very first ever Ball Headed Snowman with a weighted bottom. (I can relate to the weighted bottom thing ;0) For those of you who ALREADY know this stuff, good on ya! But for us who are challenged, this IS a big deal! He still needs to be dressed, and of coarse I still need to coffee stain him, I just couldn’t wait to show him off. I even had to give him a belly button. I know who is going to see that once he is dressed. Who knows, I’ll know!;0)
I love the shy simple little face. I had to give his cheeks a little color too. So as soon as I dress this little nakey fellow I’ll show those pics...
Now give me a little time, I have my hands in many pots at the moment.
Disclaimer: I just want to add that I created this little guy from NO pattern and I can honestly say I don't think I have seen a little guy like this. He is of my own creation.
Well Ya all Have a good one!

I did compromise, I just down loaded pics and decided to finish here at my cubicle cave…
I managed to down load all my craft pics, but I thought I would spread it out, considering they are currently still in the works, and I have no idea when I’ll be able to take over computer again…
Oaky, so you can see how these turned out oh so lovely. What do you think Moon?
I love to use my creative mind and see what works and believe me I have found enough that doesn’t work. Let me know what you think.
Now I need to find a few frames that are suitable for them. Hey Moon, when ya get the tat colored I would like to show that on here.
Skeeter Bug, says "Hey" she loves those nasty smelly bones! She holds it like a cat. I'm sure she is made of all sorts of left over critter parts cuz sometimes she's part cat, deer and rodent. Silly dog! My dad has often said, "she is tiny in stature but she has a big heart." and big googly wet eyeballs...;0)
Till next time my Crafty gal pals! Keep em' rollen'! And Have a good one!

Plus my father had surgery, so I have been helping out with stuff around the house. Let's just say the new year proves to be very busy so far...
I have managed to squeeze in some craft time in, I know you have see the pic below, I have them done now and will down load pics of them very soon, (need to shuv a teen in the closet long enough to steal computer time at home, only place I can down load pics!)
I used a new technique, I used colored pencils. I know, Say What?! They will be framed so I'm not worried about fading. Must say they turned out well!
Also, I had some help from my best bud in in Hawaii with figuring out some new sewing techs, I learned how to make a ball for a head, I'll show pics of my version of "Samuel McFrosty". Coming soon. See I usually worked with wood, love the smell of all woods, and the varnish and all that, (cave women in me!)I truly miss my saws and sanders and all my tools..... (heavy sigh!) But now I live in limited space I've had to adjust my crafty side with learning how to sew and other nifty new crafty things to keep my busy hands working. So please stay tuned, I WILL get my stuff out there!
Have a good One!
