Blizzard December 09




Ahhhhhhhh, I love all this snow we're getting. Looks like I'm finally going to get my white Christmas, it might not be snowing on Christmas Eve or Day but at least there will be enough snow on the ground to still make it a white Christmas! yeahhhhh!

I finally got my pictures downloaded of my snowflake felted scarves I've been making so I figure today would be the perfect day to post them together with a picture of our dog, River who loves the snow just as much as I do.

One more pair added to my Etsy shop



I looooooove the color of these booties I made. Chef's secret for getting that pretty color ... food coloring my kid and I experimented with. As you can see ... it worked!

More baby stuff for my Etsy shop!



I needle felted the polka dots with sheep's fleece on polar fleece to make this set. You can purchase them separate or as a set.

Update for tomorrow's Christmas Market in The Plains

Per Becky, our market manager, who went to take a look at the barns this afternoon and all looks good for having the market tomorrow. They cleared the roads and our parking lots, we'll have big heaters running in the barn so come and visit us they'll be lots of wonderful Christmas gifts to pick from. I'm bringing new nuno felted scarfs, really cute ornaments and some other unique things to choose from. Hope to see you at the barns tomorrow.

Update for Christmas Market this Sunday, Dec. 6th
























The snow has been falling in The Plains since 7:15 a.m. this morning! Preparations are being made to keep the barn open, and the show on schedule for tomorrow. However, with Mother Nature, you never know what to expect! At 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, the market manager will head to the barns and verify if the lots and roads are clear and passable. If she find at that time that we need to cancel plans, I will post an update later that morning to let you all know if the market will be open for this Sunday December 6th.
