Goodbye Champlain Bridge

If you've lived in the North Country you've probably used the Champlain Bridge. It's sad to see it go today but kind of fun to watch Bridge Demolition

Also to commerate the event one of my dearest friend's father's wrote a song about it. Speedy's Song

Farewell Champlain Bridge!

Preparing for the big day

I've been making christmas crack(sooooo good you should try it), jewelery, soap, and wrapping like crazy.
The cats have been spinning around on the tree skirt (see picture of Etta playing innocent). Almost there- just a few more things to get ready! How are you coming?

Front Page of Craftster!

My towel made it to the front page of craftster :)

Haven't checked it out yet? It is a great place to share ideas, learn new techniques, and get to know other crafters.

Stitch in time

I'm so proud of my latest embroidery adventure. This hand towel was for my grandmother in law for Hanukkah. The pattern is from sublime stitching. Hopefully she loves it :)
Happy Hanukkah!

My 12 days of Christmas 2009

Last year I made a list when I found out that the 12 days would cost 21,000 dollars to round up (it’s probably 25,000 this year). Mine isn’t that rich but it’d work for me!
So here is what would make me sing this year:

12- Bottles of Riesling (repeat to the list- I love wine, I don’t see the issue)
11- Batts of Fiber (I will learn to spin in 2010)
10- New Embroidery Patterns (I’m in love with Sublime Stitching)
9- Skeins of Embroidery floss (to go with the patterns of course)
8- Balls of Yarn (Homespun please, just in case I don’t get to that fiber)
7- 7 lbs of soap base (I want to make some for myself for a change- make it Goat’s Milk & Olive Oil from Bramble Berry)
6- Pots of Mineral Eye Shadow (Just fell in Love)
5- Tubes of Lip Gloss (I admit I am addicted)
4- Things that revolve around Sons of Anarchy (can’t believe the season is already over)
3- Pairs of Shoes (Desperate need of black knee boots and who can’t use spare flats and heels )
2- Books (need Charlaine Harris’s latest and the book by the guys in Ghost Hunters)
1- Trip to New Orleans (This is the present my hubby and I are giving each other so I know I’m getting it)

Honey are you taking notes?
I have other alternates, but who doesn’t?! What would yours be?

Party at my Place

The Holidays are right around the corner!

Shopping is lots of fun but lots of stress, so I thought of a way some of my favorite co-workers and friends could do some holiday shopping without the fuss.

I’m opening my house up to anyone who would like to come to a Little Gems Party! I’ll have my work available for sale: jewelry, crocheted pieces, soap, polymer clay, metal stamping, glass pendants, etc (you can see a sample of my work in my online shop ). I can also do most jewelry repairs and modifications if you need anything fixed for the party season.

Snacks and refreshments will be served. Come and shop or just come and snack! Feel free to pass on this invitation to anyone else you think would like to come as well. If you bring a guest you'll get a free pair of button earrings!

Saturday December 12th 1:30pm at my house- send me an email for directions

Back from the City

Every year we go with our inlaws to see the tree and my husband's aunt and uncle for Hanukkah. This year was a particular wet trip but the tree was very pretty. We skipped the windows on the department stores and went straight to visit the relatives. And the champagne tasted the same when everything was said and done :) Any traveling plans on your agenda?

Pop the Popcorn

We are going to the movies!
I love movies. Always have, always will. No wonder some of my pieces are influenced by movies I just love.
Twilight Saga

Harry Potter Movies

Frosty the Snowman

Do your cinematic favs tickle your creative bone?
