St. Louis

We recently took a trip with the kids to St. Louis. There is so much to do there with them and the zoo and Grant's Farm are FREE! It is about 2 1/2 hours away, so the car ride isn't too bad either---with plenty of snacks and drinks of course ;-)
Here we are at Grant's farm feeding the llamas

This is how Sam spent the majority of the trip!

Posing nicely!

They liked reading the map at the zoo and telling us where to go.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Lampwork breast cancer bracelet

A few weeks ago, my friend Christa asked me if I could make a breast cancer bracelet for her friend and I got right to it. This is what I created. I think it turned out great and her friend really liked it too. I think I'll list it in my shop too.
I really like the rhinestone ribbon!

Have a great weekend!

New football hat

It's been awhile since I've created a new themed hat and I owe this one to my friend Melody. She is patiently awaiting the birth of her fourth son and she asked me to create a football hat to complete his special take home outfit. I must admit, I did procrastinate just a tad as I always do, but this is what I created for her. I loved it so much I immediately listed it in my Etsy shop and made one for my little guy. Now to get one made for Quentin too! Football games are right around the corner---do you need one?? Click here to find it in my Etsy shop ;-)

Here's Sam sporting his new football hat.

It also made an Etsy treasury over the weekend too!! Do you see me??

Have a great day!

Knitty Bitty Bug Box

Finally....a new post. I've been meaning to get a new one out....really I have. I just haven't sat down to do it. And, I'm sorry to admit, I haven't even checked in on any of my fellow bloggers either...sorry!!

I'll tell you what prompted my efforts this a.m. for this post was a custom request I had received through Etsy last night. A woman had wanted a custom bracelet set for her and her daughter. She had seen a previous post of mine for a set I had made for a friend and her daughter---it had lampwork beads, freshwater pearls, and butterfly charms. So, I thought, I guess people really do read I'd better get a new post up ;-)

Anyways, all is well here. I've been swamped already with orders. I guess since fall is right around the corner, people are thinking about knit hats. My biggest seller by far right now is my little green pea pod hat. If you don't know what I'm talking about, please check out my Etsy shop for yourself---it's one of my featured items.

On to new business....I made this set for a friend of ours who recently had a little boy named Carter. I've had these little bug boxes for years now and I've been meaning to use them with my bug hats. I love the way the set turned out. Do you know anyone who is going to be having a baby and need a special and unique gift?? I also have them for girly bug hats and bees. Just let me know and I can get one of these out to you ;-) Now to just get it listed in my Etsy shop........

Have a GREAT day!
