Life seems to be very challenging for me at the moment. I am having the worst time trying to manage it and as such have not blogged in some time. I have two shows coming up and have been busy ramping up for them. Here is a really cute bag I made from vintage fabric.

I will have to make another or I wont be able to part with it! It has silver rope for the handle and silver fabric inside as the lining, with a vintage button accented by a rosette of more silver fabric.

Come by and see me if your local to the central valley. Check my calendar to the right for dates.

Just a quick blurb tonight. I have been busy trying to finish projects and then I have to slam my daughters homecoming dress out by Sat morning so I likely wont post the rest of the week. I am up tonight as I was watching election coverage like the rest of the US. (BTW I have an editorial post over on my other blog Disclaimer you may not agree with me and thats OK. Anyhow I am also testing out a new hosting over at squarespace. So far Im liking it, as it has ease of use for designing my blog, and lord knows I barley have time TO blog let alone design it. Plus later I can integrate my website with it. So please check it out and leave me a comment there telling me how you like the look of it!

Odds and ends

Ok so I broke my record of blogging daily. Well I'm just not that perfect okay? :) Plus Ive got tons going on. Just moved again, thats the 5th time in 5 months. But you don't want to know about that! I thought I'd post some things Ive done the past week that Ive been MIA, like for starters here are the four pouches I made to go with the NKOTB messenger that I did. And I'm happy to say that the new owner is thrilled with the results!
I have also started on another project for a local church. I am embroidering 12 vests for a program they have called Well Versed Kids. The kids learn a bible verse and get a patch for each one they memorize. The patches are put on the vest. Its a great idea. The funny thing is I met the woman in charge of it, Debbie at the Wal mart fabric department. She was asking about how to iron the patches on and of course the employee was no help! So I said, well you can use wonder under and we started talking and next thing I know I get an order!

In other news, I also wanted to show off a recent custom that I made for an ebay customer in canada. She loves Donnie of course! I hope she likes it!

Right now Im getting settled in my new place and trying to finish up the vests as I have two more nkotb Jackets to do and then I need to prepare for HandBorn which I am doing on the 29th. Whew! This running your own label stuff is hard work! And to think Im debating a part time job for christmas??? Im just nuts!
