To Do List

Figured I’d better make a list of everything I hope to complete this week.

leaf-stencil-red11. Finish and mail off bunting for customer.

leaf-stencil-red12. Start to design a cartoonish animal puppet with an old and seriously pilled dark green fleece blanket I have lying around.

leaf-stencil-red13. Now that September is here, I really need to get organized for the christmas season. I need to put together my new ideas for garlands, dolls and gingerbread men, and such like.

leaf-stencil-red14. Play patio tennis with my son, Jacob, and actually win!

leaf-stencil-red15. Start making time to relax and read some vintage children’s books that I used to LOVE as a child.

leaf-stencil-red16. And, design the measurements for some patio seating so I can be outside more.

leaf-stencil-red17. Last but not least, smile and laugh more, be thankful for everything I have.

Keyring Dolls, almost finished

These are another cute creation of mine. When completed they display the words “I heart Barbados” … with a picture of a heart not the word, lol. They also have a ring attached to the yellow ribbon you see at the top, so you can add them to a bag or a keyring, etc. Yes, they’re in the shop too.

The lady over at Little Cotton Rabbit is so talented, she makes the most exquisitely beautiful hand knitted softies. Each is a work of art. Amazing.
