Getting Closer and I've been tagged!

I have been tagged by Lynda Cansfield of I am supposed to list 5 things about myself and then tag 5 more people. So here goes.

1. I am very quiet and shy
2. I have been writing a novel for the last 2 years and I had a play produced at the private university I work at last fall
3. I was born on St. Patrick's day and I am also half Irish and I collect shamrocks and leprechauns
4. I believe in the magic that all of our children start out with and carry it with me everywhere (like: santa, fairies, lepechauns and the special myth involved with those things) Everyone needs some magic in their lives
5. I believe that everything (good or bad) happens because it was supposed to happen, I feel that we map out our lives before we are born because of the lessons we need to learn.

Ok so now I am tagging, I could only find 4 that I hadn't already been tagged:

11 more posts (including this one) to go

What am I talking about? Well this post will be my 90th and I am just a short way from my 100th post. I am going to host a contest with a handmade by me giveaway for the winner. I WILL mail anywhere too ;-) Keep watching for more information about my giveaway contest and help spread the word. I don't know how to do the fancy button thing for advertising though.

Valentine exchange

Each time my doll club meets, we have a challenge, exchange and class. We start our day out showing and sharing our newest creations, patterns, books and ideas. Usually we choose a theme and use it to decide our exchange and challenge. This time we had the fairy house class, our challenge was to make a fairy for our house and our exhcange was a valentine related item. I made this wall hanging out of red felt and a gorgeous red/purple plaid homespun. I love this color.

Another Swap

I got this gorgeous swap from Judirose in Australia. I love it all. I really love the gift bag with the map of Australia. I am going to frame it and hang it on the wall. The snowman is awesome. Thanks Judirose.

Fairy Houses and contest

At my doll club on Saturday, we made these little felt fairy houses. This was a really fun project, so much fun I came home and started some more smaller ones. This one stays with me, but I am going to make some of the smaller ones and try them on ebay. Maybe I might make some milk money for my grandson. Anyway, I noticed that I am getting closer to my 100th post and have been cooking up a contest. Not too sure what it will entail (it will be simple) but some kind of contest, with (YES) a free handmade giveaway!! Woo hoo, so check back frequently in the next week and a half for details about the contest.

First doll of 2008

Well, I am finally beginning to feel better and managed to finish a doll that I started right after Christmas. Her name is Ellie the elephant. I don't seem to be getting much traffic at my website, so am considering trying ebay, but I haven't got the first clue about how to do it. Anyway, Ellie is probably going to be my first ebay listing as long as I can figure out how to list her. I would love comments letting me know if you like her.

Well, I realized that there was one thing I finished over my Christmas break. I made this snowman ornie and had plans to make some more, but was too sick. So, I guess you could say that I was lucky to get this one done at all.

Happy New Year

(First step Christmas Eve)
(Santa brought him a trike)
(first bath as a 1 year old)
(Christmas train birthday cake)
(Fingers in cake)
With the holidays and some minor medical issues I have been out of the loop again. This Christmas was my grandson's first birthday, he was born on Christmas morning of 2006. Here are some pictures of him to check out, he took his first step on Christmas eve and ate ham and turket at Christmas dinner and was such a little gentleman when putting his fingers in the christmas train cake I made him. What a delight this little boy is and what joy he has brought to our home. We are so blessed. I want to wish everyone out there a Happy New Year and hope that this year I will be more productive and healthier. I am working on some new dolls and crafts and hope to post some new pictures soon. Some of them are for swaps and won't be posted until the person receives them.
