CRAFTY CAT AT IT YET, AGAIN !!!!!!!!!!!!



My daughter made a covered wagon.It was for her class project in school.I was pretty busy the day she worked on it so her big sister assisted her.When she brought it home she left it sitting out.Sure enough that troublesome Crafty Cat found a way to get inside the wagon and get comfy.Can you believe it???
Theres more.........


Crafty Cat has influenced the Gray Wonder, who thinks it's o.k. to take a nap in the wagon.As you can see the project was made out of paper and cardboard,therefore with the weight added has given it a flat tire :0)

Tune in next time for more adventures of Crafty Cat ........... ♥♥♥

*** MMD OPen House ***
Day 1

Yesterday was the first day of my openhouse.As I always say,"It's always a surprise who shows up to these things".Two of my good friends were here, as well as a vendor friend I met this year,my daughters teacher,my husbands coworker,and a few other random people.And they all came at different points in the day,which was nice because I was able to have nice conversations with each of them :0) Some times it seems like you get busy all at once.I had a little time in between guests and worked on sorting my gift closet.The holiday is getting closer and closer.Time to start wrapping BLAH !!!!
Wish me luck today !!!!!!!
Oh yeah,this cute zippy can be found in my etsy shop

Happy Holidays !!!!!!!!

*** Annual Open House tomorrow ***


And I am not getting enough done.I NEED to clean,set up my display,cook and bake cookies.Blahhhh,I know its worth the effort but it seems like a lot of work.
I already disassembled my sewing area and took it down to my room,set up the christmas tree(I do need to put up some more festive decorations),and did some surface cleaning.
I can't wait to see who all shows up.Its always a surprise !!!
I sent out a bunch of my new postcards for my invitations.I invite some of the artist and customers that I have met at shows,people I see on a regular basis,long time friends and a few other people I have had contact with but never met in person.I hope I remembered everyone ??
It's nice to invite them into my home/studio and visit with them during this time of year.I have a few of my newest designs made up.I'm sure they will be a hit.
Wish Me Luck !!!!!

October is Breast Cancer awareness month.
I made this bag for a very special lady who is fighting the fight!
I had this idea to make this PINK and to give the seahorse a breast cancer ribbon but i did it with sequins ala' Mary Moon.
I wanted to make her something beautiful, something as beautiful as her even as she fights such an ugly disease, she still has such an upbeat and positive attitude, an advocate for the cause and a true inspiration.
I put much love and prayers into this bag , it is truly an OOAK for a OOAK person.
H.P. much love and prayers to you and your family always!
Celebrate your Life!

This is my newest tattoo .I had it done on my vacation in the Philippines.I went to the mall the night before I left.The guy who did it was only 20 years old and very talented.He warned me that the top of the foot is the most painful place to get a tattoo.I did it anyway . I didn't think it was that bad.It is my 4th tattoo and I think the one on my front shoulder hurt the worst. I will admit that my foot did swell up for 3 days and it was most uncomfortable on that 26 hour plane ride.Not to mention I dropped my hand carry on my foot,OUCH!!!!!!
The significance of the sea turtle = they live a long life and my goal is to do the same!

I had the most incredible vacation ever and it was for a whole month.I went to the Philippines to seek out my roots and grab some sun.This is a pic of me my mom and my youngest daughter ,Sela. If you know me,you know I live for summer, so I didn't complain about the 95 degree weather. I only went one other time when I was eleven and I really wanted to revisit the country and visit family through my adult eyes. The food was SARAP ( meaning = delicious) . My cousins were the coolest and I would go back in a heartbeat!
