I didn't think it was possible for her to get cuter but she gets more beautiful the older she gets :)

This was my first attempt at some mixed media, it was really fun! I made it for my friend this is her youngest and she is such a doll! Doesn't she make the perfect butterfly?

We had two full rainbows this weekend, it was pouring rain and lightning so I didn't get the full pic but they were beautiful and sooo bright you could see every color!

Tea Roses

Me and my daughter went to the Winterfest yesterday, it's kind of turning into a tradition for us. There are always cool artists and beautiful jewelry and of course all kinds of yummy junk food! We always come home with something cool to show off :) My daughter fell in love with an Alaskan Jade stone ring,very beautiful and the name of our late Boxer so she had to have it :) I got a coral and a turquoise ring and cute little hippy top :)

I have to show off this jewelry from Busarin Designs Her jewelry is made out of real flowers and leaves! The website does NOT do it justice, it is just beautiful and delicate and very vibrant! Her booth was lovely and I really wish I could have gotten a piece from her, but she does have a website thank goodness. The flowers are mostly tea roses and the leaves but she has some with big rose petals and orchids, really unique and beautiful.

Etsy and Easter

My mom makes these beautiful nests and she made some new ones for Easter, go check out her Etsy store at . These are two of my favs and she has one that would be perfect for Valentine's day with red eggs and glitter! She hand twists the nests and hand dyes and felts the little eggs, she makes pincushions and hanging ones.

Visit this shop at to buy this apron pattern! How cute is this ?! It's reversible and the color combo is great, I hope I can find that same color of aqua fabric! I will be so tempted to where this out of the house just like she is wearing it. Have a swell day :)

How do you like the new banner?! I'm trying to make my blog a little more pretty and simplified.
Also, come check out the new book store! I opened it through Amazon's astore, I get to pick what books to sell and I get a percentage off of the sales :) It's a pretty cool little thing and it's run through Amazon so the check out is the same. It's called Dottie Lou's Little Bookstore and I've got some really cool ones and one's for children too :)

I finally received my pattern for the skirts, it got sorted wrong at UPS but it finally made it to my house! I can't wait, I'm going to get some fabric today , I think I am going to make the skirt that's on the cover first I like the rough edges on it.

The Winterfest is this weekend and I'm going to get some info on how much for a booth etc. , I really want to open a booth next year! I want to sell my handspun yarns and maybe some roving etc. It gives me a whole year to plan and spin alot of yarn and save up for the booth fee..LOL!
My friend Sarah is starting to get very good at making purses and maybe she will want to do it with me?
