This boutique season has just about been the death of me. I am exhausted from using every spare minute (and some not so spare) to craft everything from crayon holders to birthday books to candy jars. Not to mention the billion or so banners I have created in the last two months. So it is with great pleasure that I announce my second to last boutique for the season! It is going to be this weekend and it sounds like it will be tons of fun. Leave a comment if you would like me to send you the flier. Erin has done a great job with advertising, especially since this is her first time hosting a boutique. Thanks Erin.

It says grateful in case the contrast on the yellow pennants is not enough for you to read it. (as with almost everything on this blog, it looks better in real life.)

These are some close up shots of the stitchings that I do. There is a bride on one that says "I love to see the Temple, I'm going there someday" and the missionary is on another that says "I hope they call me on a mission."
So, I havn't posted for a while because I have been frantically trying to make enough product to have for the fall festival hosted at a local charter school this past weekend. As you can see, my booth ended up looking quite festive and I had a lot of positive responses about it.
Some of the most popular items were the banners (Fall in particular) and the Missionary and Temple stitchings. It was a fairly successful weekend and I'm glad it's over!

So I finished the Gobble Gobble blocks. What do you think? The blocks turned out darker with the stain than I had originally planned, but I still think they look good. Do you think the turkeys are too big? What about the pumpkin? Is it too small, does it look out of place with the two turkeys up on the blocks? Hmmmm......no wonder creativity is such a complicated process.

This is most of the figurines I make for the trick or treat set. There is also a ghost, pumpkin and bat. They sure dress up the wood blocks!

These "Trick or Treat" blocks were a hit last year, and this year they are turning out to be just as popular! I have created a couple of new figurines this year as well, a skeleton and a mummy- to DIE for! (get the pun?)
This is my daughter's personal stitching, but I make them custom to each customer- matching hair and eye color when requested. I also change the paper on the frame (yes- they come differently than this one) to match the recipient's decor. I will show more of them later- they are really cute.
I love this Happy Birthday banner. The colors are so bright and the beaded appliques add just a little sparkle.
