New Grinning Pumpkin pattern

This is my newest pattern, available on etsy, ebay, and patternmart. This has some of my favorite elements.....grunging to make it primitive, party streamers, party hat, and buttons. I also love adding glitter to my items, since I feel like I am a glitter Queen. One of my work tables in my studio is always covered in glitter!

My Slugger

This is my daughter's last softball game tonight....the "Sea Monsters" rocked!!! She loves playing each year with her team. This is their 3rd year. The girls learn soooo much each year and most the dads try to help out where needed. My husband, Selina's dad, loves to help, as 3rd base coach. I love to watch and cheer!

Witchy Halloween badges

These are my new Halloween badges, the finished product...for sale on ebay:
Halloween is so much fun to work on, but a little strange making these when it is 88 degrees!

I will have three more different ones to put on in a few days. I also have a new Halloween stitchery that will come out soon and some more surprises as well. Sometimes when I am making Halloween items and it is not fall yet...I put on scary movies or my favorite halloweeny record- Dark Shadows (the soundtrack from the old tv show). I love my old records!!!!

Happy 233rd Birthday America!

I know I am a little late on posting for the 4th of July, but better late than never! WE had a spectacular fireworks display in Downtown riverfront park in Spokane, Washington. Gone are the days of a firework stand (atleast around here!)...I remember going to the local store and there would be a firework stand, and all of us kids would buy smoke bombs, snakes, and sparklers a week before...letting them off whenever and then mom buying a big box for the 4th. Now it is illegal and you never hear a piccolo pete anymore. Some things are not better now than in the past. oh well, atleast I can tell my daughter about it....she loves those stories!
