Rain, Rain, Go Away ....

We've been in a drought for so long and now that it has started raining, it doesn't stop.  We received around 9 1/2 inches from Tropical Storm Beryl and at least 10 inches this last week.  My MIL is in Pensacola and she said they received 20 inches Sat., in one day.  

I recently won a give-away from Cynthia at Flowering Angel , I told her to surprise me and did she ever.  She sent me a patriotic wreath and a doll from Colleen at Colleen's Craft Shed along with some yummy spray and tart that Colleen made.  Thank you, Cynthia., check out her blog, when you get a chance.
 I made up two of these girls, I have had the pattern for a long time and found it again, she is about 30 inches tall, I used a Reet's Rags to Riches pattern.
 Made up two of these two, I used the apron embroidery pattern from above for theirs too.
 And I have been enjoying making my little elves, this is a Kat's Kountry Prims.
 While cleaning my craft room, a couple of weeks ago, I found these labels that I had put up about 2 years ago and couldn't find.  I used an old mason jar and grunged up the jar and added moss and a flicker light.
 Some more jars, that I had laying around, trying to use up stuff that I have.  I want to add peppermints, closer time to the shows.

I went to Joann's, I was almost out of muslin  and I only had one coupon, but I went anyway.  Luckily, I go there so much that one of the ladies that I know there gave me two more coupons, so saved $35.00 that day.  They have a lot of holiday fabric already, so bought some Christmas fabric for more elves.

Well, back to work tomorrow, I hope everyone has a great week.
