Here it is the wee hours of Sunday and it's been a wonderful weekend. A little on the wild side too, but it's all been good! I am so excited about the prospects for my shop. I had a couple of orders last week that went into the mail on Friday, plus I sold off 2 of the Barbies that I have decided I no longer wanted. I included a couple 'samples' from my shop so hopefully that will help generate some business. I am also doing a couple trades with some awesome ladies...I am getting some fabulous Monster High goodies in exchange for Barbie items and handmade goods from my shop. =D
I've purchased several 'new' patterns for Barbie clothes (which hopefully I can modify for MH too) including a couple 1920s outfits and 3 japanese pattern PDFs that have LOADS of clothes! I have also been dabbling in miniature art work too. I am honestly a terrible 'draw-er' but I like these! It interesting that many of my ideas come from area rug designs!

one . While I love the idea of this design, the execution was not what I was hoping for. Not entirely sure how to manage a smooth solid background color, but the design is fun!
We got our first taste of winter yesterday! And to say we got caught unawares is a bit of an understatement! There was a Winter Weather Warning from Midnight Friday night until 3pm yesterday. Well when Hubby and I went to bed around 2am Saturday morning, there was still no snow on the ground. It must've started snowing right after we went to bed, because I woke up to THIS!
We were hoping to make a snowman, so my littlest one help me make some polymer clay snowman features. Sadly the snow was too fluffy to make a snow man, but we will be ready to photograph the pieces we made as soon as we can make a snowman. Since there was no snowman making to be had a giant snow fight ensued! =D There was snow flying everywhere!
Well y'all it's almost 3 am, time to go curl up into bed with my hubby and snuggle away the rest of the night. Until tomorrow!
