SUCCESS!-(I couldn't post this before, But it's here now!)

I can't believe I actually did it, but three projects done!
The first has no picture because I forgot (DUH) but are the rings I had an order for through Etsy.  Done, packed and ready to mail!
The second project is my MIL's stocking,

It's made from a felted sweater and a felt reindeer.

Then my last project was one that I wasn't sure would work, but I hope to sell these ornaments...

at the Atlas Craft Show that I'm in come November.  I will have to tinker with the design a bit, and also I need to make/buy a small tabletop sized tree so I can display them.


Since writing that post, I have signed up for ANOTHER craft show, also here in Greeley.  I hope I don't lose my mind before it starts!
it's here at
Zoe's Coffeehouse
On November 5th in the evening.

Poor malnourished bloggy!

I have a second crafty show coming up, and I also have a whopper of a swap to finish, and those are my excuses for not blogging.  Also, I am not feeling very clever. (What, you say?  The ones I have written were supposed to be clever? Well, you can shut it. How's that for cleverness? Huh?) 
Here is the new incredible show of awesomeness and fabulosity

Atlas Winter Show
(This is some of the work of artists that will be there, my thing is the purse)

It looks like it is going to be soooooo awesome, and I can't wait.  But I seem to be waiting a LOT to start on my new holiday themed stuff, and that's just no good.  I hope to accomplish no less than 3 projects tomorrow, and blog about them.  Also, I have mentioned that on Facebook, so now I'm putting it out there so I have a sense of obligation to do it. Hey- self motivate however you can, right?

Also, I have been informed by the crafty masters of craftularity that I need a website. Thus begins what I'm sure will be a long process of setting one up. yay.

Copper gOODIES

So my newest temporary obsession seems to be copper.  It's beautiful, strong, and complicated.

I hope to expand on my capabilites- But I have never been one to shy away from a challenge, and I fully intend to learn all I can before this gives way to whatever whim I have to act on next.

So I have been busy immersung myself in all things fall lately.   Anything pumpkin, apple cider, baking, leaves, and the beauteousness of autumn colors.  Simce I haven't bloggulared in a while, here are a couple fall-ey things!
This is for my sis, she doesn't have a fall wreath, and while I am far from great at making them, I think she appreciates the thought. :-)

I did not come up with the idea to put pumpkin in brownies, but O.M.G. it is fabulous. Not only is it pretty, it tastes like a chocolate pumpkin pie.  I wanted to share it with everyone I am sending cookies to, but sadly, it won't be making it into the packages due to my inability to control myself. I have made and frosted some more sugar cookies, which will be sent out as soon as I add some more cookies to the packages, and I also experimented with dried apples and make an apple cinnamon sugar cookie that I love. I have a few more fall baking ideas, and as soon as I get my buns back in the kitchen I will post pics and reviews.
Also, unrelated to cooking or crafting, but I have the cutest dogs in the world.
