My newest offering.....

Well I know it seems early, but the witches and ghosts are already making there presence known in the ebay world. I thought it time to create some myself.

Let me introduce you to Matilda and Hoot.

I had fun making this pair.

Hmmmm maybe next up a pumpkin gal? We shall see. It`s a good day to stay in and create. The weather here today will be rainy and quite dreary. So no excuses I must get myself to work!

Natures Beauty...

What a sight to be seen! I haven`t seen one of these since 9/11. The most beautiful rainbow filled the sky after that tradegy and I was blessed to see another. I had just gotten home from the grocery store and said to hubby how we haven`t had many sunshowers here the last few years(enjoying the one we we`re having) and when I got out of the car I looked up and saw this:

So beautiful isn`t it!

Tonights the night!

Oh the anticipation! So who do you all the think will end up the IDOL? I sooooo want to see David Cook win it, but I`m afraid to say that I think David A might steal it in the end :(

This is the first year that I have watched it all the way through. I must confess I`m one of those who like to see the comical ones in the beginning and then lose interest, but not this year!

Next I can`t wait for the Mole to begin. Have any of you ever seen that? I loved it and it has been a few years since they`ve aired so I`m real excited about that.

I did manage to get 2 new things listed before the big fianle tonight. Here`s a peek at them:

Cora Mae

and A snickerdoodle scented beeswax flicker candle.

Well get your popcorn ready and enjoy the show!

Phewww never thought saturday would get here!

Well we finally have a nice sunny day after a few days of rain it`s much appreciated! Hoping to get out there and plant some flowers in the beds. This is my favorite time of year!

Wanted to share a cute story. My 9 year old daughter Mackenzie was watching the God you tube I have posted. Some time passes and she comes up to me with arms crossed and says "so you know how I`m a tomboy, well God has a plan for me". I couldn`t help but laugh. She is so cute, but even more amazing was the time she must of spent reflecting on the video.

She`s too funny every year when picking out halloween costumes she goes right over to the boys side...LOL I try and bring her in the middle, but she`s not having it. She`s been a power ranger (the blue one as thats her favorite color), Dash from the incredibles,spiderman 2X and a swat officer. No ballet shoes or tutu for her..LOL
Gotta love her!

Would love to share a lil tidbit. The ebay group .KSGP is having a Day at the Circus launch. The listing date starts tomorrow sunday the 18th. Be sure to stop by and see all the wonderful creations that will be offered.
Heres a sneak peek at what I will be offering:

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

I just wanted to pass this along.....

I stumbled upon this at Heidi`s(aka crabbygabby) and I found it so uplifting that I wanted to pass it along and share it with you all! No matter who he is to you I hope you find as much comfort in it as I did.


Sunday evening.....

It`s been a long and productive weekend. I managed to finish up 2 dollies to be up for auction this evening on ebay. Here`s a sneak peek at them both.
First is Blessed Be Mary an Americana primitive:

and also Tabitha with her pet ants. Some like to carry their dolls around, but not Tabitha she brings along her pet ants ;)

I`ve also decided to start dabbling with paper clay. So today I went out and bought me some new supplies..woohoo! I`m really excited about getting started. I`ve been so inspired by the members of RagsToRichesDolls (r2rd) their work is so amazing. So wish me luck! If all goes well I`ll be having a new offering some time soon so be sure to keep checking back.
I still have five other dollies sitting here begging me to just stuff them ;)So that will be on the calendar for tomorrow.
Now it`s time to just sit back and relax for the rest of the evening.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
