Too much to do!

Do you ever feel that you have so much to do that you just shut down and don't do anything? That is how I have been feeling lately. I just don't even know where to start with all of the things that I have to do. Suggestions are greatly appreciated :)

Tangled Yarn!

One of my nieces got some of my yarn all tangled up. I am working on getting it untangled so I can make an American Girl Doll blanket. The only good part about it, is that it is so soft it feels really nice. Anyone else have problems with tangled yarn?

I went yarn shopping today! What could possibly be more fun than shopping for yarn? I don't know! I love all the different colors and textures. I bought more yarn for making dishcloths. In the next couple of days they should be ready to go up on Etsy. Keep an eye out for them :)

The Apprentice

I was hoping that Trace Adkins would win ( he has such a good voice!) I also think his charity is really important. I have nieces and nephews with severe food allergies. Of course Pierce won because somehow he was able to win more money. Trump didn't have a choice but to pick Pierce.

Sugar High!

So is everyone on a sugar high from Easter candy? Did you find your Easter basket ok? They said on the news today not to eat your Easter eggs after 2 or 3 days. I just stick to eating candy, lots and lots of candy! Bye for now!

Hand Made Directory

I just found out about this website today. If you sell hand made items you can put your name and a link to your website on this website. Also it is a good place to find handmade items. They make great presents :) Here is the link to the site: I am listed under the children's section b/c most of what I make is American Girl Doll and other 18 inch doll clothes. Have fun. Leave a comment if you post your website and I will check it out :)

I can't believe that Easter is in less than 2 days and we are having a snow storm! How crazy is that! I was hoping that we were done with lots of snow for the season. I'll have to get my snow boots back out. Anyone up for some sledding? Maybe on Easter we can do some sledding. My nephew will probably want to help me plow snow with his favorite tractor :) That will be fun! Maybe we all can make Easter Bunny Snowmen :) lol! Have fun playing in the snow if you have it!

Bitty Baby, Bitty Twins, My Twinn Baby

I am starting to make baby doll clothes. Hopefully by the end of the month I will have some listed on Etsy. I will update you when this happens. If you have any suggestions of what types of outfits, colors, etc... you would like please leave a comment. I will see what I can do :) Thanks!


I am trying to improve my photography. I have set up a makeshift "photography studio" in my house. My husband is a photographer, but he does outdoor photography and doesn't have time to help me. I have taken one photo that I love and have been trying to duplicate it with my other products to no avail. One of my main problems is it has been really foggy lately, so the lighting is horrible. I am having fun trying to perfect my photographs. I hope that other people think they are improving :) Thanks for listening.

Green is my favorite color

I love St. Patrick's day b/c green has always been my favorite color! Don't forget to wear green tomorrow or someone may pinch you :) I would never do that to anyone! lol! My husband loves St. Patrick's day b/c McDonald's has green shakes. Every year he has to make sure that he buys his fair share of them. Mint bothers my stomach so I don't share his enthusiasm for them, but I try to help him remember them each year.
I have a neon green sweatshirt & matching neon green hat that will be perfect for tomorrow. I want to make sure that everyone knows I am wearing green.
Have fun tomorrow!

It should be lots of fun :) Their are lot's of great crafters at the show. I am trying out a new way to display my items, I hope that my display looks better and is more customer friendly. I will let you all now how things go. The only bad part is having to get up early in the morning :( Wish me luck tomorrow :)
