In case you haven’t read the news on Facebook yet. We had a false alarm… no baby to report yet. Baby and mom are doing fine… baby is just content to stay put for the moment, so we wait. Gammy (aka Kimara) packed up and headed out of state earlierRead More →

Fairy’s request this year for Halloween was to be Little Red Riding Hood. Mainly she wanted this cape! I was a bit worried when I cast on a couple weeks ago whether or not it would be done on time. We have our first Halloween festivities next weekend. Although I missedRead More →

Just another teaser… Over break I have been working on some new projects too. The first one I am sharing is this cute sweater I came up with for our 12" homemade dolls. Fairy had found a sweater on a stuffed bear and switched it to her doll (although it wasRead More →
