I can't help it. I know I have done him before but I just saw The King's Speech and I loved it. Absolutely the best movie I have seen in a long time. Jeffery Rush was brilliant and so was Colin.
And so was My Man Thursday is  Colin Firth.

Holly Raleigh And Harry Potter

Holly Raleigh is over. It was alot of fun. The weather stunk but I saw a lot of my peeps. I was also amazed at how quickly my Harry Potter items flew out the door. Here is a really bad photo of the House Garland

The little boy that bought my garland was so excited. I told him I was glad it was going to a good home.
I also made a notebook and that went to another little boy and he loved it and told me he is already writing in it. I don't have a picture of the notebook.
My journals sold well and so did my dress garlands. I am now moving my stuff down to Bliss Bake Shop and Munchkin Designs. I will have my product back there this week.

I am working on some vintage University Of Oregon banners that I hope to have in the shop soon.

Wedding Garland

Here is a sneak peak at my new Wedding Garland.  It will be available at Holly Raleigh. Dec. 11th at Raleigh Hills School Beaverton, Oregon.  This garland would make a great shower gift. Each bridesmaid can take a dress home after the shower so she has keepsake from the event and the bride can keep the brides dress of course :)

Sugar Plum and Gum Drop Garland

I'm back from my Thanksgiving vacation. I ate alot of good food and gained alot of bad weight. But I have been busy making new items  for Holly Raleigh like the above Gumdrop Garland and below my Sugar Plum Garland.

Sorry about the photos they're a tad blurry. I'm moving so fast these days everything is a blur including my photos.  :)

Two New Christmas Dress Garland

I thought I would share what I am working on. I believe these will be available at Munchkin Designs inside Bliss Bake Shop soon.

Sorry the photos are so bad we are having a really bad wind and rain storm which lets in very little light. Today has felt like 4:30 all day long. But I love the wind and rain. So very Emily Bronte.

What's A Girl To Do With . . .

cotton balls, glue, glitter, a paper cone, misc. faux gum drops, and a hot glue gun?

Well, make a cotton ball tree of course. Duh!

These just make me happy.

Here's how to put some joy in your life.
Round up your supplies:
Paper cone
craft glue
old paint brush
cotton balls
fire up the hot glue gun and you're off!

Start at the bottom of the cone and carefully apply the hot glue three cotton ball spaces at a time.

Next apply cotton balls and press the balls as you go. Keep this up for the entire cone. Then dap a bunch of craft glue on wherever you feel like it. Sprinkle glitter over the glue and shake of extra glitter. Let that dry.

Next I  hot glued some, faux gum drops I had tucked away in a drawer, around the tree. You can hot glue buttons or small pom poms, or old tiny ornaments wherever you think they will look good.




Have Fun!
