Is fast approaching!!
I can't believe January is just around the corner.
I can't believe that in a matter of weeks I will be a married woman!!
All the arrangements for our wedding is done...everything else will be handle at the resort
I DO....hahahaha
Believe we are ready
Christmas was good but quiet this year. I unfortunately had to work both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
We got together with Mom on the 22nd and had a great time. Stuffed our face and exchanged prezzies
Mom bought me some beautiful doll clothes and some antique sewing kits! A beautiful quilt that is perfect in my sewing room.
Haven't done to much creating...slowly working on a new dog...very slowly...
So much else going on
I did make a wreath for my room. It's not finished yet..I'm waiting for the perfect embellishments for it....
It's not quite that bright of a pink. It's a much softer pink.
It was fun making it. There were feathers every where which of course the kitties were
And here's my Lilly girl taking a moment to look cute and pretty!!

Well I'm off to drink some coffee and eat some yummy monkey bread my mom made us :)
maybe a few oreo truffles too!!

Time is flying!!

I can't believe how quickly time is going. I am going to be very busy for the next month and a half...with Christmas and our wedding!!
Which by the way is only 44 days away!!!
I was surprised with a bridal shower last Saturday! That was a great time and I was completely shocked.
I can't share any pics at the moment cause well let's just say the few pics I have aren't suitable...LOLOL...
I should be getting my wedding dress soon...we've emailed all the details to the resort and we got our marriage licence!! much to do...Can't even imagine trying to organize the whole event...NO thanks!!!
Let someone else do it!!
So I did manage to create a critter..
His name is Cricket!!
Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Winter Has Arrived

Well it snowed and I think it's here to stay!!
Today I put up my tree..well most of it. It has lights and tinsel...that only took me 3 hours to do
I'm getting slow in my old age!!
The test now is too see if  Boomer will decide to eat it!! After all he eats everything else that's not tied down!!! Actually he will eat that to...hahaha
So far so good! All he has done is sniff and stare at it. It's the cats that were going crazy!! Caught Sophie wrapped in some of the tinsel she pulled down BAD kitty!!
It's a good thing they are all cute!!!
They were super good last year so fingers crossed they will be again. And hopefully the dog doesn't chase the cats up or around the tree! I have of course reinforced the tree with some fish line...
lesson learned many years ago when some other pets chased each other and knocked the entire tree down!! We can laugh now but it was something right out of a Christmas movie...and it all seemed to happen in slow motion! lol
Things have been moving along here...haven't done to much creating....busy getting the wedding stuff organized. Had my 1st wedding dress fitting for alterations!
It was so nice to wear it again....
Got to stand on the podium and do my little
Mom came with me and it was just PERFECT!!
So I haven't been completely slacking off..I'm working on a few mini orders and
I did finish a new bear.
I had been wanting to try to make a bear from blue jeans and sooo I did!
Here she is..

I'm really happy how she turned out. Will definitely do that again!!
Happy Wednesday!

Sad day/Remembrance Day

This past week Colin and I lost a friend. He was tragically and suddenly taken.
27 years old and life only beginning.
He was a very kind, pleasant and funny guy!
He will be missed by many, many people!
His memorial message was...
"Don't Cry Cause It's Over;
Smile Cause It Happened!"
I love this quote and it's so true.
It's hard to understand why things like this happen...and truefully I really struggle with it.
Mom and I talked about it and it's a time when you need to stop and appreciate what you have and remember how fragile life is and how important it is to live this life to the fullest.
And remember to let those you love know how much they are loved!

Cold Days Ahead

I think it's official the cold weather as begun and very unlikely to go
The colors of fall are all around and the crispness is in the air!
Which reminds me I need to buy a new winter coat!!
So the doll and bear show we did...was for a lack of a better word crap!!
Don't get me wrong I love doing it and I always get some nice doll clothes and I'm always in good company...but the show is dead!!!
I'm not sure if any of the club members read this post and if they do this can't be a shock to them.
For the past few years the show has been dying!
The date on which it's held on is now a popular weekend. The city offers a free day that all attractions are free for families...which is really cool but not on that particular day! lol
And trust me I don't think the city will move their date to accommodate us...highly unlikely! LOL
And to top it off that same weekend also has Comic Con!!
We still have our die hard people who are there every year but it's just not enough.
They need to change the date and change some of the policies and get the show back to what it once was!!
I really hope they take what I suggested into consideration. I know I'm not the only one.
If it's on the same date next year I will not participate. I will go and long as I know the vendors I buy from will be there...which is also a possibility they won't be.
Keeping my fingers crossed!!
Other then that I got some great little clothes and some sewing supplies.
I made and brought a whole bunch of my mini tins and canisters and came home with only 4...lolol..
That was awesome! One lady pretty much bought all of them!! I love that!! She was so excited which of course tickled me pink!!
So now I'm in my studio full of inspiration!!
Creating new critters and working on some minis as well!
Happy Day To All!!

Lemon into Lemonade

Well that's what I'm trying to
Been kind of an icky day but I know it can always be worse!!
My dislike of Ebay has come through again..errr that place is just not good
The fees are horribly awful!!!
And there are just way to many issues that I don't want to deal with.
 It really does take the joy out of creating and selling my critters...and that makes it just not worth it!
I enjoy it waaayyy to much to have Ass***** ruin it.
So my lemon has turned into lemonade and I've decided to do the bear show and sale with Melanie. I didn't think I'd have enough bears but I do and I can make a couple more before then.
 I think I will also bring some of my miniature tins and canisters with me to.
Cause you just never know!!
So I created a new critter...a cat!!
I haven't made a kitten in over 3
so I thought I'd give it a go.
To be honest I didn't think it was going to turn out..
but I kept on it and did my usual thing and now..
And I can't wait to make another!!
so here he is...

Where did the summer go?.....
It happens so fast and I really do believe our summers are getting shorter and our winters longer.
This morning I woke up to the sound of my furnace kicking in!!! lol
That can't be good!!!
Yesterday I actually pulled out my slipper socks and come to think of it I sure could use them now!
My footises are cold!
Well this month holds some fun times I think..
This coming Saturday is the town of Gibbons garage sale...Mom, Melanie and I always go and always have a great time!
Colin and I are celebrating our anniversary so we have booked a dinner theater thingy at West Edmonton mall. This one is a parody of The Pirates of the Caribbean... should be good!
Then there is the Doll House show and sale. Which we will go to and see what we can see. Also I think the Teddy Bear Show and sale is this month to..but I won't be participating this year..not enough bears to sell but I will be going and spending some money!!
So lots of fun things planned!!!
Not to mention I'm that much closer to our wedding!!!
and Happy Monday!!

A Gloomy Wednesday

It's nice and cool here today. A lil gloomy as well.
 That's okay with me...I kinda like it!
Monday we brought our baby Boomer in to get fixed.. I can't believe he is already 7 months old AND he weighs a whooping 75 lbs!!
OMG when he's full grown it will be like living with a moose!!!
He is doing really good...being a good boy and only having to wear the cone at night.
He has not had to walk the cone of shame...heehee...
BUT I can still hear the cats laughing when he does!!!
Did some more sewing yesterday...working on a rabbit!! Hopefully have him or her finished by the weekend.
But I did finish a new bear and she is available for adoption on ebay!

Happy Wednesday!
