Panic Time!

I just realized that the holiday season is upon us.  Time to PANIC!  I guess that will happen when crazy stuff comes up within your family, and that is all you get to concentrate on for a few days.  Now that it is all past, I get to concentrate on making some stuff! a hurry!   I got three wallets done and listed in my Etsy shop yesterday, and today is all about a HUGE stack of billfolds that will be going to Funk Shui in Eureka.  I decided to not do any craft fairs this year just so I could concentrate on filling up my Etsy shop and keeping it that way.  I'm crossing my fingers that I can keep this energy going!  It feels good to be productive!  I wish my poor sewing machine agreed:)

Along with sewing, the kids and I have been making things for the holidays, mostly from what we collect outside.  Lots of leaf collages, stars out of sticks and twigs, etc.  It has been so nice to deliberately go out for walks in hopes of finding treasures to work with.  I hope to have some pics of our creations soon, I just realized how badly I have neglected putting up photos from the last few months.  We have been busy little happy bees and plan to stay that way.

New in Red

I finished these two up this weekend and now they are waiting in my Etsy shop to go to new homes!  Can you tell that I really like how red, black, and grey look together:)  After a very busy week, I am back to cutting and sewing and gearing up for the holidays.  I have one more great big red pouch to sew up and then I'm on to some purple things and billfolds.  Wheeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!

Purple, Blue, Black, and Yellow

Many moons ago, my dear friend Kathy, who sends me lots of leather and suede in the most glorious colors and textures ever, sent me a HUGE school bus yellow leather trench coat.  I have made a few things with the leather but hadn't really found a good match for it in my designs.  Now I think I finally have!  These two are now available in my Etsy shop. I am hoping to add what I can to this years collection of goodies.  Thanks for looking!

New upcycled necklace in copper and brass with amethyst and moonstone drops

Peridot and Iolite are the accents on this one, which happens to be one of my favorite combos of the moment:)
 Happy November to you all!  I'm still sewing and hammering and all that so my posts are pretty infrequent as of late.  I hope to share some pics of my show at Funk Shui and some birthday an Halloween pics too!  Be back soon!
