Say what!!! Christmas is just around the corner Dudettes!!

Are you getting ready yet?

I have been making these cute little Christmas Mice Pin Cushions!! This one is upcycled from a red cashmere sweater that had a hole in it. I hand sewed the whole thing. I love making the sweet little pins in it too. Brooke had all these beads so I thought I'd put them to good use. This little sweety is listed in my Etsy Shoppe.

Along with these two Mice. These are made from warm n natural and grubbied up with my special mixture. They smell yummy. They also have sweet pins in them that I made. I've got another red one to list tonight. I am also whipping up some Crow Hangers for Christmas. I am in the Christmas mood which is super duper amazing for me!!! Thinking of new things to make and what baked goods I would love to make for the season.
We will be having a homemade Christmas this year as our funds are very low. I believe that is really getting me in the spirit and making it seem more fun!! Tonight is trick or treating. Waiting for my neighbors little kids to come and show me their costumes!! They are so adorable. I remember when their Mama use to come and show me hers!! I love it!! And I am also off to make Banana Bread!! Have a great and safe night.
XOXO Love ya, Fran.

Hi dearest Fran!

I love those wee mice. How cute! I have been to your Pinterest board many times and I adore it. I love your old soul. Yes, I'm getting geared up for Christmas in my own little way with my wee little fairy folk and's gonna be a really cute Christmas!

Our funds are low too, it's such a struggle. Last night my kids grandma passed away and they are hurting. Please say a prayer especially for my son Darrin, he is hurting and acting out in anger. Kara's husband Shaun will face his first surgery on his heart on Nov 15th...thank you Fran. I love the fact I can count on you to pray when I ask. It's our only hope in this tough stuff world.

Love you! I'm getting ready for a one day craft fair at a church...matchboxes and gnome homes and my cards, bags and tags...

Happy Pinterest and blog days ahead!

Oh yes Fran, where is Jill? She simply disappeared out of my life and I don't know why? Is she okay? I see she is no longer blogging. I would hate to loose her as a friend and don't know why???
