Meet Patience Howland & Jasper More

Okay- it's still November, so I can still post my Pilgrims.
I was working on these the night before Thanksgiving. I wanted to finish them, and not just end up with  a bunch of Pilgrim-parts floating around waiting for NEXT Thanksgiving. 
I was so proud of myself for finishing them. 

I took them with us for the whole day on Thanksgiving.   We had so much fun!
They were meant for decoration - but there were some special children that fell in love with them.

Happy "Dachshund" Thanksgiving

There is so much to be thankful at this time of year!!
I am thankful for my dachshund!
I am thankful for my loving daughter that made me this thanksgiving plaque!

What's better than ONE thanksgiving plaque?
The other one was for my "doxie-lovin" mother.

Friday Finds

This one made me laugh 
(I think I have even said those words!!)

This website has LOTS of uses for pallets - but I think this one was my favorite.
I guess I wouldn't need to use a pallet for this one.  I just love this idea!

Hollandgirl, over on ebay has THE cutest dachshund related Christmas decorations

This one was too cute!!

Ornament Swap

So, I signed up for an ornament swap over at Tuts and Tea Parties.
You are just randomly paired up with someone to swap an ornament (homemade or purchased)
I was paired with someone in Ohio.
 (I don't think I've ever been to Ohio!)
Our ship date deadline is November 22nd.
I finished mine, and I am going to mail it tomorrow during lunch.

I think it turned out very nicely. 

I hope that she likes it.

I'm anxious to see what comes in the mail for me!!
  Stay tuned!

I have some "Uh-Mason" Volunteers!!

So, WAY back in August I was reading Smashed Peas and Carrots. She had a great idea for a teacher gift for the beginning of school.
Well, I don't have children in school... but, I do head up the children's ministry at my church... and I have some A-MAZING volunteers.
And, I began to think...... 
And, this is what was birthed!!
 I bought 2 packages of mason jar cups - 3 in each
 Then, I spent a couple of weeks trying to collect items with matching colors!
 I had fun!  Tic Tacs, Gum,  Drink mix, a clip, lollipop, one even has a pen
I'm giving them out tomorrow.
I hope they know how much I REALLY appreciate them!!!!

Friday Finds

 This is a picture of a give away on
 Thrift.Nest.Sew. that she did back in 2010 - 
It was just too cute.  
One more thing to add to my list for food for Mr. B.
 No pattern here - but it is something that I could make!!
Had to post this one.....
Too Much!!! 

And... what would "Friday Finds" be without a Doxie Pic?

American Girl Outfit

My sweet little niece is turning 10 on Saturday!!

I made her sister a sleeping bag 2 weeks ago.
Didn't want to do the same thing!

So, she gets a sweet little outfit!

It turned out better than I had anticipated!

I  hope that she enjoys it!

Working on a Personal Challenge for 2015

I'm in the process of working on a Personal Craft Challenge for 2015.

I am "beyond" proud of myself for sticking with the October Crochet Challenge.

So, let's see if a 30 Day Challenge can somehow morph into a 365 Day Challenge!!!

I am almost embarrassed to say that I have OVER 3,000 pins on my Pinterest.

I don't even think I know what is on there.

So, for the last few days I have been weeding through my crochet/craft boards and actually picking out the things that I TRULY have a desire to make.

While I am typing this, I am thinking about all the recipes that I have, too.
Maybe I should do the same thing..... Either delete them or make them!!
That is my mantra!!!

Keep watch - when 2015 rolls around!!

Saving it for Halloween
