It's Been Awhile ....

Wow, it's been three weeks, since I posted.  I have been super busy with orders, which is a good thing.
We celebrated my birthday last weekend, hubby and son took me to Bonefish Grill.  Very GOOD!!!  Then we had German chocolate cake and Reese's peanut butter ice cream.  My friend Debbie, made me a chocolate cheesecakey dessert, YUM.  So needless to say, I don't need any more sweets.  I need to start walking again.

We have three of these little guys living in our yard, and of course, each have their own hole, so you have to been careful when  mowing.  We haven't had that many in years.

I did another white-haired witch, I found ghost material for her apron.  I am going to make a ghost to go with her. 
 Some Santas, because it will be here before you know it.
 I made up three more sets of Raggedy Babies, a pattern by Happy Hearts.
 These were two special orders, I used the Sweet Meadows Farm pattern for the basic body.
 Can't leave fall out, I had a large order for these.
 I was also the winner of Sandi's cute little doll, Thank you Sandi.  she has a special place next to my other dolls.

As some of you know, I work at a public library and I have always wanted to host a crafters and flea market as a fundraiser.  I was able to talk the Friends of the Library into agreeing to try it.  I am very pleased with the turnout, we have some awesome crafters signed up.  So far, we are up to 35 vendors and counting.  We are starting an album on FB
You'll notice my little witches, we are still working on adding pictures, we have several quilters, woodworking, ornaments and more to add.

I took today off, my son had to have an implant in one tooth and another bone graft in one that didn't take, so he needed a driver, as he was out of it, he's been in bed most of the afternoon with ice bags, pain pills and a mouth full of gauze.  

You'll remember some of the pictures I posted previously with some of the "uglee" face jugs my hubby collects.  He is now into the serpents, religious and such, he just bought this, 
a serpent box, made by Eric Cunningham, a folk artist.  He picked up some snakes when  he was at a pottery show a few months ago.  It is a good thing he has a room to keep these in!

Guess that is all for now, I hope you have a great weekend.
