Matchbook Notebook Fun

I've been busy creating these fun little matchbook notebooks to give away in the swag bags at the Etsy RAIN Holiday Show. Each is 2"x3" and filled with blank paper, ready to fill up with secret notes. I just love these. My daughters create little books filled with pictures and stories. Santa even used one last year to keep track of his naughty and nice list. They are the perfect size to slip into a pocket or little purse. Be one of the first 50 customers either Saturday, November 21st or Sunday November 22nd at the Etsy RAIN Holiday Show at the Intiman Theatre in Seattle. Or if you can't make the show, I will be giving them away as a free gift with all orders from my Etsy show through the end of the year.

Spin, Spin, Spin

I've been spinning in so many ways -- the most enjoyable has been this beautiful yarn. Each skein, except the dark grey, is hand dyed light grey Corridale wool. I then plied it with metallic thread to create a soft, wavy yarn. Very fun! Right now I am building up my stock for the two craft shows I'm doing next month. And then I will list it all in my Etsy shop. I thinking $5 per skein, plus $.25 per yard. $17.50 for a 50 yard skein, $30 for a 100 yard skein. It seems reasonable for hand dyed, hand spun yarn. Let me know what you think!

Busy Days filled with Feelings

I really thought with 3 of the 4 kids in school I would have more free time. I'm now realizing that isn't going to happen. I'm just busier driving around, volunteering at school, supervising homework and entertaining the four year old. I guess, it's just time to get used to it and get to work.
These are a few more from my "I Felt" series. The small format seems to be about all I can accomplish these days--even the 12"x12" size seems larte. It's a season, right? Just wanted to let you know I'm still around and my intentions are to be a better blogger.
Oh, and look for posts coming up for the EtsyRAIN Holiday Craft Show and Indie Banditas Bazaar because I thought I need a couple more things to do this fall!

Check It Out!

Make sure to head over to the Twelve by Twelve blog and check out our latest quilts based on the theme "Twelve." I bet you'll never guess what mine is titled, unless of course you know obscure geometry facts. We have a lot happening over there as we finish up our first 12 sets and begin the next!
