Quilt Ladder

Today I put the finishing touches on my quilt ladder.  My husband got some "toys" for Christmas and he was dying to build something.   So he came up with a quilt ladder for me.  I started out with barn red and went from there.  I continued with the sander and "dirtied" it up.  It turned out Fantastic !!!!  I'm thinking a craft show seller.

First day of school- finally

Today is the first day of school here in Altoona Iowa.  This is a day of reflection and I have mixed feelings about the kids going back.  One hand the fighting comes to an end, my grocery bill goes back to normal, sleeping times go back to pre vampire time.  On the other hand I have to get up an hour earlier.  In case you haven't figured it out its all about me. 
My high schooler was not happy about the start.  She was trying to get out if going and that was not going to happen.

My new friends are done

I got creative and my new snow friends are done.  They turned out really cute.  I had a whole table done and no two are alike.

So, I have got a couple of shows under my belt but would like to hit one more before the holidays. Most of the shows have been packed and lots of shopping being done.

I have been thinking of some things for next season but, i am needing much needed rest and relaxing.

I still have some quote tiles and soy candles left for sale. Please contact me if you are interested.

Thanks again to all who came to the show last weekend in Beaverdale. Have a great holiday and blessed 2012.

My tiles are done and ready for selling. They come in 3 different sizes. Last fall I had a heck of a time keeping up with the sales. This year I am prepared!!! Happy Spring to everyone. This is the time of the year that I am starting to like. I am a "fall" person by nature by spring is starting to grow on me. We are busy around our house with softball and all things planting. We look forward to the summer and the kids getting out of school. With summer comes the fall craft season and all that is entailed with that. I am busy with planning and gathering, hunting and detailing. I hope you had a great spring and you all have a great summer. Spend this time reflecting on what you have in your life and what is to come.
Happy Crafting!
