What a winter….

Whew! December is almost over… and to be honest, I think I’m glad. I really overdid it this year.ย I took on way too much to see if I could really do it but I guess it’s not always like the movies and sometimes one can only do so much. :/ I got a lot of wholesale orders through Etsy which was so amazing but the downfall of it was that it made ALL other orders this winter late. I had some angry customers and some nice ones (thank you!) Overall, it was a learning experience. By taking on a bunch of orders, I ended having to give refunds, rush shipping, etc, etc, etc, rather than make extra money. Oh well… you win some, you lose some.. ๐Ÿ™‚ I had some medical emergencies that pushed back everything even more. All the while, I still hosted THREE different Christmas celebrations at my house and still tried to maintain a normal life. Many sleepless nights (up doing orders) and now I’m down to the last of my orders and still trying to play catch-up with my not so happy emails.

I still have dial-up internet (I live in the middle of nowhere) so I am rarely online. If you get an email from me it is because I sent it with my phone while looking like a contortionist looking for service.

I plan to do MANY MANYย more blog posts in the new year and to only post ‘ready-made’ items in my Etsy shop because I learned the hard way that you never what the future holds and yes folks, there is such thing as putting too much on your plate.

I wish the happiest New Year to everyone and thank you to all my customers that were so patient and understanding.

Much โค



Winter Wonderland

Gracey has been enjoying her time off from school to play in the snow. I have been slaving away at my endless orders and keeping the fire stoked. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love winter and everything it brings. I love the bright white snow everywhere, bundling up in a million layers, sitting by the fire with some coffee, and being surrounded in yarn and packages to put the finished project in.

Yesterday, I made Gracey hot cocoa with homemade whipped cream, marsh “smoosh” mallows, sprinkles, and a candy cane.

I will try to post more soon but I am still without internet. I didn’t think I could go this long without it. It hasn’t been easy but I should be getting my part soon and I will have tons of blog posts to share…





A few weeks ago Gracey and I went to Thomasson Family Farm to get some pumpkins. I photographed the animals but the nose shots were my favorite. ๐Ÿ™‚

The other day I made this cute little hood. It is SUPER soft. ๐Ÿ™‚ My friend Lindsey was nice enough to take some photos of her daughter modeling the hood and here are some of the photos!

you can find the hood here in my shop and visit Lindsey’s vintage shop as well!!

It has been almost a month since I have had internet….sigh… It is terribly frustrating especially when you have an online business. I should have internet up by the 21st and then I can go back to updating my blog and listing some new fall items in my shop.

Gracey’s 1st Day!

Gracey started her first day of school on the 30th. I can’t believe how fast time flies.

She was so excited to ride the bus and meet her new friends. What a big girl!

Fresh Produce

(Child’s Fresh Produce in Red Apple)

Why not start the school/fall season with some Fresh Produce? Here is my harvest so far ๐Ÿ™‚

(Child’s Fresh Produce Hat in Green Apple)

I had so much fun making these cute little hats. I have a couple more designs that I am working and will probably have them listed (just like a garden) as soon as they are ready.

(Child’s Fresh Produce Hat in Lemon)

They are made with chunky soft yarn so they have plenty of stretch and warmth. These hats fit babies from 6 months-2 years. I can make any size really so if you would like one for your 10 year old, your teen, or yourself, just send me an email or etsy convo and I can whip one up for you.

(Child’s Fresh Produce Hat in Pumpkin)

I might wear a pumpkin for Halloween ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m excited to see how everyone likes them. I generally just make adult knit wear but with all my friends having babies, I have been inspired to make a baby line.

What do you think?
