Santa's Workshop guinea pig style :D

I have a very special customer in France who I make tiny guinea pig hutches for. Some of my favorites are the novelty themed hutches. I've made a pink castle, a fire house, a train, and my absolute favorite. Santa's Workshop. This one was fun to make and create. It even has a little guinea pig with a Santa hat inside. Putting my little hutches together are like putting a puzzle together. First I use graph paper and measure out pattern pieces. Then I cut stiff felt fabric to the size of the patterns, and I end up with a little bit of Awesomeness when it's finished. Last night I was playing with my graph paper and thought about maybe making a bakery and a candy store. I never know what's coming up next :D

Didn't think October could get any scariar

Yup! October got scarier once again.
About a week and a half ago I started my journey through: (Here comes a kidney stone ville. ) No fun! Lots of pain, Lots and Lots of medication, no eating, hardly drinking and not remembering days at a time.

Ironically I finally passed the stone 16 years almost to the hour that I gave birth to my daughter. Weird huh. Well that was last Thursday and I'm recovering just fine. I just need to gain some of the weight back that I lost.

Yes, I'm one of those people. Struggling to keep weight on skinny mini. I've been like this all my life. Underweight, but normal for me. This afternoon my husband made me an apple pancake the size of my head. No one should eat anything the size of their head :o But I did finish it.

He said he has a plan to fatten me back up. Utttt Ohhhh. He's like 40 pounds overweight and I'm like 25 pounds underweight. This should be interesting.

Okay that's my catching up for now. I hope to add something fun very soon. :D

Just checking in (scary October)

Hey everybody out there in blog land! Sorry I've been slipping but I've been busy working on things for my shop. I even had some top secret prototypes to work on. So here we are approaching mid October. My daughter is turning 16 on the 15th. Hey now there's something scary for Halloween. I just can't picture her behind the wheel of my red Town and Country van. Another scary thing about October, is just as the air seems to get chillier and chillier your reminded of whats to come. About 11 more weeks till Christmas in Etsy land. This is my first Etsy Christmas to prepare for. I already have things in mind for my own family that I have to make. I'm just afraid I'll get all kinds of orders like a week before Christmas or something. I have so many different things in my shop that I really can't get started on much. And hey, "I'm only one woman! ". Anyway, Happy October and have a happy Halloween season. I just picked up my costume today. 1 tiger tail, 1 tiger ear headband, and 1 tiger bow tie. Yup going all out. "NOT". Well maybe next year. lol Hope to check in again within the next few days................. :)
