Busy buzzing bee
So as usual the studio is an utter wreck. I am a very messy worker bee, but like to begin with a clean work space. Tomorrow before anything, I will be sorting and cleaning my work table. I know I should not be that messy, but no matter how much I try the end result is the same.

Here is a little snippet of one of my new fabrics. I am still tweaking it, but I am very pleased with what I already have done. I am thinking of many cute things to make with this print. So excited! I do have a couple more new designs, but need to make some extra monies before spending it all on fabric. Besides all the craftiness that is swirling about my head, only one thing on the mind...Thanksgiving! I enjoy cooking, so needless to say I love Thanksgiving. This week will be a whirlwind of squash, potatoes, cranberries, Apple and pumpkin pies! Can't wait to gobble them all up come Thursday! After Thanksgiving I will have some more cuteness to share, but for now have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Makers unite!
Things have been nutty around here. There is always personal and family happenings, but also lots of busy creation happenings too. I have been working on lots of new products and ideas for the shop. I have already introduced two new projects; The holiday "Bag-O-Cheer" and Monsieur molar. They had been floating around my head and my sketch book for a while.
I do have some exciting news that I can't share yet, but I hope to be able to share it soon! It is so super awesome and I am so honored to be a part of it! Eeek! Not to totally be a tease, here are some new things I can share!
I have been feverishly designing fabrics. It is my new obsession! This guy above is my ode to the 1980's. My Son recently saw an old Simon game commercial from the 80's and now he has been searching out all 1980s games. I have decided yet what I plan to make with it? I experimented on some designs, but nothings a keeper yet.

I also designed these 2 little birdies. I think I might name them Peep and Tweet! They will be making an appearance in the shop soon. After the holidays I really have to clean up my act, literally. I have to organize everything! This tend to get a wee bit unruly around here with the Holidays.

A couple of things coming up in the ityworld. Look for holiday sales on EtsyonSales , Lots of new items at Needles &Pens in sunny San Francisco, and if you haven't already sign up with my newsletter for coupons and events!
