Phew …
I don’t know about you, but I’m REALLY glad it’s Friday. Last Friday – Monday were a bit of a blur with SEW much sewing! I had started some holiday table runners and then found out that I almost sold out of crayon wallets at the Holiday House Boutique. So I set the table runenrs aside and whipped up more crayon wallets and then finished up the table runners.

Tuesday and Wednesday were also full with trying to get the house in order, catch up on laundry, appointments, errands … you know, all the normal life things that make life … well, full!

All that to say … my Instafeed was a little light and BORING this week. Sorry, I’m going to try to make up for it this week. I have much to be thankful for and hope to focus on that starting NOW..

Table runners and table toppers. A very small run {uhm 4 total ;D} of these, but they were SO fun to make. Traditional Christmas colors with a splash of modern gray+aqua. A traditional pinwheel block with the modern white. The two table runners are already on their way to their new homes, but the two table toppers are still available in the shop.

November Happy Bundle Giveaway. This was such a fun group of items. I mean really, ombre+polka dots+happy words+PB MnM’s … how could you not love it?!? Speaking of, I haven’t heard back from the winner. I’ll give her a few more days and then pick someone else, maybe you!


Homemade Cinnamon Rolls. Need I say more? I’ve pretty much perfected {if I do say so myself} this recipe over the last couple of years. So, very sinfully delicious. Sadly {for my hips} they also re-heat really really well. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Ahhhh … Sundays. We have a love/hate relationship. I definitely feel like Satan is throwing the punches as soon as I wake up. I’ve really had to work at focusing my heart and mind on this day of praise and glory to Him and restoration for my body and spirit. On a lighter note … it takes me all of 2 minutes to switch from church wear to rest wear … every.single.Sunday.

I tagged this “Happy Monday” and I’m sure some people thought I was wacky. Really, it’s no way to start out a Monday …

…unless you have ZERO cavities and then get treated to a vanilla milk & lemon loaf by your mama. Then it’s a Happy Monday.

Cutie little crayon wallets. I want one for me! I haven’t had these in the shop for awhile now, but I’m wondering if they should make a come back? Thoughts?

And … remote blogging. Which may be why today’s post is more wordy. I’ve got a captive audience as I have several hours to kill in the car ;).

Happy Friday!


  1. Running out of items at Holiday House is not a bad thing! Just throws a wrench in your day. Heading to the Canyon County Christmas show this afternoon.

  2. as much as i hate for someone else to go without their prize bundle, i wouldn’t mind my name getting a second chance…know what i mean :o)
    i also think the crayon wallets are awesome. my kids have each had a few in their days made by their grandma and they were so easy and compact to take with me to entertain the little ones while we were out. i say go for it!
    happy weekend!
