I'm not trying to scare you

but... Christmas is less that three months away!!  EEK!  

Okay, I know what you are thinking, "OH MY GOSH, can't we just get through Halloween before we have to think about Christmas?!"

Yes, totally... but kinda not. Because honestly depending on the size of your shopping list you might really need to get started. I have zero clue what I'm going to do this year but I know I should be thinking about it very very soon!

If you are going to order handmade items from me or from the many other super talented artisans online or even locally you really should start making plans. Hand crafted items take a bit longer to make but the impact and quality are so worth it. 

To help with your holiday planning I will be adding a coupon code on October 1st. so make sure you check into the facebook page for that. :D

I've been really throwing myself into work lately so I have a new toy or two to show you.  

Many of you might know, I was born and raised in Central Florida and lived there until I was 30. One of my friends from high school ordered two very beachy toys recently and I just love how they turned out. I do have a favorite though and he will eventually get his own listing on the custom toy page for sure.

It's the cutest stingray ever. :D

This toy is modeled after a Great White and I am so so in love with the final product. And I am going to try to get more of this sock pattern, it fits the shark so perfectly.

Life threw off my groove

I really was cruising right along. Then my daughter had surgery, which I talked about a bit. Well, about a week after we came home I started feeling "off". List of symptoms aside it turns out that due to stress, crappy sleep/eating I developed a lovely case of Shingles... yea, that rocked.... said no one, EVER!

It was miserable. I was miserable. lol Obviously I didn't sew. I didn't blog. It was just UGH.

So I'm back and trying to finally begin work on an order I should have already completed. I made a new template, sewed the body, cut the excess fabric, and really looked at it... It's a complete fail. This was actually a first. I've made mistakes, have thing I want to tweak for other toys, etc. But to fully fail where I have to run to the store for a new sock, that has never happened until yesterday.

But today, my friends, today is a NEW day! And I'm going to show this sock who is in charge. *fingers crossed*

Did You Know?: Giant Arctic jellyfish have tentacles that can reach over 118 feet in length.
