Halloween Ribbon Wreath

Have you checked out Pinterest?
Beware, its terribly addicing!

Amy recommended it several months ago, so I got an account.
And the acceptance email sat in my email box for (literally) months.
Until another blogger mentioned it again. Sorry, I can't remember who.
Sooooo, I went and checked it out.
Did I mention its addicting?
You can check out my boards by clicking on the "follow me on Pinterest" button on my side bar.
Now, its on my list of places to go at least once a day. Sometimes twice.
Sometimes I sit down and several hours later realize that I am still there.

I need to take some pictures of things I've been working on. Some are for Jen and I can't share those. But other's, well, if I took the pictures, I'd have something to show you.
For now, I'll leave you with this:

I got the idea off Pinterest and I am very famous for "OH, I can do that!"
Although, usually, I'll buy the supplies, realize I don't have time to make it right now, and a year later, when the holiday rolls around again, I'll think of it and finish it.
But this one, I was determined to get done. And I love it.

Not blogging, but sewing!

I guess with only 3 followers, no one probably misses me too much, but I have been BUSY!
Nothing I can really blog about tho, sorry!
I've been working on the girl's halloween costumes.
They need to be done by next Friday, so I'm getting down to crunch time and really don't have much progress. Some, but not near enough!
I've also been working on my Santa Sack Swap gifts.
THOSE I am so excited about!
I wish I could share!
Suffice it to say, I'm thrilled with what I am working on and may be making duplicates for myself.
And my family.
And the homeless guy on the corner.
And the crossing guards.
And.......I'm joking, I'm not really going to make it for all those people!
But they are darn cute!

Ok, my dear son is begging for the computer and its time to take the teens to their Homecoming dance.
Have a great night!

More Presents!

I'm a bit late posting, but I got my newest set of Santa sack gifts in the mail last week.
Friday? Saturday? I don't remember cuz Allie brought it to me while I was in the cave sewing.
But, it came! Thanks Jen!!!
Everything looks fabulous and I can't wait to open it all!
I know you believe me that it looks great, but here's the proof:
My sack is filling up!
A peek inside!

Jen did send me an extra treat that she let me open right away.

It was a 2 part suprise:
A Bath and Body Works purse size hand sanitizer.
That Teen #2 promptly sniffed and stole and I don't have a picture of.
But here's the other gift:

OMGosh, it smells amazing!!!! One of my very favorite scents!
I'm not sure what Bath and Body calls it, but it smells exactly like Yankee Candle Christmas Cookie!
Sooooooo good!
Jen, thank you so much for everything!

And just to tease you some more:
Here's a small piece of something I just completed for you:
I love his smiling little face!
