Halloween and our trip to Ohio

It's been so long since I've posted anything on my little blog.... I thought that I'd finally start writing again.
Let's start with Halloween! Layla, my oldest daughter, wanted to be a go-go dancer. Matilda, the youngest, wanted to be a butterfly (although I just bought her a fairy costume and it had wings..... it worked out okay!). You wouldn't believe how far those two kids walked to get their free candy!!! They're definitely troopers!

Two days after Halloween, we were on our way to Ohio for a two week visit. You have no idea how happy I was to finally go back up north and feel some of that fall weather! I actually got to wear a jacket! Plus, seeing all our family and friends was awesome!

My dad is always so excited to see the girls- we spend hours at the park with him!

Now it's Thanksgiving day..... I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by! Christmas is only a few weeks away..... I'm so excited to start decorating the house and putting up a tree..... AND wrapping pretty presents!!

It only took about a year.....

but I finally managed to get some new clutches in my shop. Well, right now it's just one new clutch, but I'll be working like a busy bee this week to get a wider spectrum of colors in my shop.

So here it is! (Really, it isn't groundbreaking, but it's quite pretty!)

Of course, it's in gray- that really seems to be my favorite color these days. You can find it here in my shop.

On another note, I just got in a picture of some of my clutches in action (at the cutest wedding EVER!!)- All of the pictures taken at the wedding are quite incredible, but here's one of my favorites:

Aren't the girls adorable???? I really couldn't have asked for better models! :) Thanks again Jamie!

My new wish list

I've been spending way too much time on esty drooling over things that I think that I need (but probably don't)...... I'm saving all of them for my Christmas wish list:

The cutest coffee mug (plus it's 3D which I think is sooo cool!)..... and I can never have too many coffee cups! You can find it here.

Amy, over at PonderandStitch, was showing off this fantastic calender- I think I need one!!! LittleBrownPen has a great shop!!!

I love Margot from The Royal Tenenbaums!!! Plus all of Nan Lawson's prints are super cute and fun.

This one probably can't even wait until Christmas- since I'm a terrible cook, this is one thing that I buy on a regular basis (and it never lasts long in my house!)- I love the simplistic label- plus the shop name: JamGeek makes me want to buy from him even MORE!!

it's time for a sale!

It's about that time of year before it gets super busy on etsy..... so I thought that this would be the perfect time for a sale!!

All my ruffle clutches are marked down to $18.00 (they're usually $25.00)- so take advantage while you can!!

Everything is in my sale section right now!

Youtube made me happy this week....

I never cared for this song at all until I saw this earlier in the week.

Notice how the guy look disturbingly like Ben Affleck....
They do a couple of other covers that I love- definitely worth checking out!!

Something that always cheers me up....

It's been a long time....... but I thought that I'd post a little something before I get back to sewing.

Here's something that always cheers me up. Enjoy!

If you haven't seen Wristcutters, it's a must see (especially if you're a Tom Waits fan!).
