It’s Almost Time:

Hi Blog Friends,

As promised, I have some pics of the craft items I’ve been working on this week. I didn't get as much done as I had hoped though. I went to the doctors about this cyst on my side fully expecting him to remove it but he couldn't because it is infected and man does it hurt! I have to take antibiotics for 10 days then go back. I hate taking antibiotics they always seem to make me feel yuckier!(    Oh, an the spot on my arm, the Doc said is an age spot!! I said AGE SPOT, are you kidding me!! He said that’s what happens as you age, some people are lucky and don’t get them; others get them really bad. He tried to make me feel better by asking how old I am, and complemented me by saying I really did not look that old!( Thanks Doc…..

Well, on to some pic’s of the crafts. Most of the things I am making are for Fall and Halloween. I can’t wait to start making Christmas and Winter items; I love making snowmen the most.

Here are some large witch boots. I used vintage white porcelain buttons on these and filled the top with florals I found at GW.

Look at this little pumpkin girl. She turned out so cute.  She was created from a pattern in the October 2010 issue of Create & Decorate. Gabby Gourd, by Kim Grasso.

This scarecrow turned out much cuter than I thought he would. It was a free pattern from Crafty Ole Crow.  I have a ton of these old spindle spools I purchased a few years back at a yard sale. I could never figure out what to do with them, but seeing how you all here on the net create things as make-do’s I now know what to do with them.

Very cute bowl fillers – Frost on the Pumpkin pattern by Pineing for you prim collectibles. I got this at Prim Mart in the free pattern section. click here to go to that page. Some great free patterns!!

And look at these adorable little Annie's! I loved making these, they are simple and quick to make. It was another free pattern I found on the net. It is by Countin’ Crows and the pattern is called Annie 4 Sale. Sorry I can’t find the link for this one.

I could spend all day surfing the web for free patterns. There are so many generous designers out there and I truly appreciate there generosity. Try surfing sometime, you to can find all kinds of neat things.

Gotta get back to work, and my side is killing me:(

Don’t forget to watch for the drawing of my prim fall giveaway on September 1st!!

Prim Blessings, and have a great weekend.



  1. Love it all but gotta say that Louie and Pete are the best. Looks like Louie can be quite a handful when not playing with Pete! LOL!


  2. Wow, these are all great! I love the little pumpkin girl and the kitty with the green eyes, they're adorable. :D

    I hope the antibiotics help so you can get that cyst taken out. My friend has one right on his tailbone and has told me how bad they can hurt. I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Look at all the cute things you've made! You've been BUSY! Love the black cat...and those sweet Annie dolls! Everything is cute as can be! ♥

  4. I love the cat with mouse!

  5. Sorry to hear that you couldn't get the "quick fix" at the doctor. Will keep sending positive thoughts your way.
    And I must say those witch boots are to die for!! Love them!
