Christmas Dolls

I just listed some dolls on ebay. I love the Christmas fabric on these dresses.
This little school girl cracks me up every time I look at her.
I love red heads and orange heads.

You know me I had to add a little snowgirl in the mix.
I just love making dolls!
I put up our Christmas tree last night while watching Christmas Vacation.
It took me 2 hours to put the branches and the lights on...I really want a new tree with the lights attached. What would I do with that extra time?
I'm off to decorate a little more.

Time Sure Does Fly!!!

I just got back from Las of my favorite places to go.
This time we stayed for six days.
I know that's a long time but Mike and I needed to celebrate our...
25th Wedding Anniversary!

This is the view from our hotel room.
We stayed at the Signature at MGM.
This was our first time staying there and I have to tell you it was perfect!
From the moment we walked in it had a calming atmosphere and oh did it smell nice.

Our room had a balcony, which was wonderful! It was so nice to sit out there with temps in the 70's when at home it was in the 50's and raining.
We did alot of gaming, from betting on horses, football and baseball to slots to craps.

We went to see Frank Caliendo the comedian.
If you watch football I'm sure you know who he is. He is even more funny in person. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. We are still laughing at some of his jokes.

We were in Vegas so long that one day we rented a car and took a ride to Lake Las Vegas, Green Valley Ranch and of course....
Hoover Dam.

It's a pretty impressive sight...just thinking how you would even start to build something like that. No we didn't go on the Dam tour but we walked all the way into Arizona.
It's a loooong way down...I'm looking for the door Clake Griswald walked out of when he was on the tour.
Now that vacation is over back to the real world...and back to crafting. I have 3 more shows all in November. I also want to put a few dolls on ebay and some things on etsy.
This was an outdoor fair I did before I left. It's not the best picture but it was a beautiful fall day.

Until next time...
Happy Fall,

Looking Forward to....

Packers Football!!!!Tonight is the last preseason game.
Look who's on the cover of this weeks Sport Illustrated.
Yep, that's our quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.
I like watching the Packers...
I get a lot of stitching done...the better the game the faster I stitch.
It's when I try new appetizer recipes...
you know everything taste better while watching the Packer game.

Wouldn't it be fun to try to make this?
The best part of watching the Packers....
it brings the family together.
Go Packers,

What does a boy do on a summer day?

Have a garage sale!
Welcome to Jack's Big Garage Sale!
Jack is the one in the blue shirt and white baseball cap.
Jack found some friends to help.
Notice the scarves...they help direct customers to the sale.
He wanted to offer valet parking but you need a drivers licence for that.
This all started when Jack wanted to have a lemonade stand. He thought why stop at lemonade...I could sell some of my stuffed animals and t-shirts. What about some of my baby books, and old soccer balls.
An entrepreneur is born!
Yes, he sold lemonade at the garage sale.
Happy Summer,

My New Annie

I just had to pop in to share pictures of the new Annie I made.
I fell in love with the daisy fabric and knew I had to have it...I didn't know what I was going to do with it but I had to buy it.
I think this Annie is the perfect way to use the fabric.
I'm so happy with the way she turned out.

Happy Summer,

Today is...Funky Hair Day

Today is Funky Hair and Hat day. It took two large handfuls of gel. Tons of hair spray. Some blow drying.
Red hairspray. White hairspray.
And a boy with an idea.

I just love days like this.
Jack asked me if you could wear his hair like this for his baseball game...I told he sure if you can get your cap on.

Don't you think it would be fun if adults could have a funky hair or hat day?

Have a Happy Friday,

What does baseball, sausages and Danny Gokey have in common?

Miller Park
What do you do on a beautiful Friday night?
Go to
Miller Park
to watch the Brewers play ball.
It started with an idea....
This would make a perfect spot for a ball park.
Miller Park is the second ball park built on this spot...I just love this picture of Jack.

Miller Park
It has a retractable roof so we can take any kind of weather Mother Nature throws at us. This was the perfect idea because spring in Wisconsin can look a lot like winter. It's not that fun watching a baseball game in the cold and snow.

Ready to play ball.

Time for the racing sausages...
Polish (2), Brat (1), Chorizo (5), Italian (3) and the Hot Dog (4)

Go Dog Go

Today is Danny Gokey in Milwaukee.
He is singing the National Anthem tonight at the Brewers-Cubs game.
He will throw out the first pitch at the game too.
Go Brewers!
Go Danny!

Do you play LaCrosse in the rain?

YES!!!My son Jack is trying a new sport....lacrosse.
Here he is all geared up and ready to play.
This is the first game this team has ever played.
See how shiny and wet the parking lot looks. It's been raining and pouring the whole morning with no sign of sunshine.
Still raining.
It was about 57 degrees and pouring rain for most of the game.

I think the ball is somewhere in the puddle.
Well, Jack says he loves playing lacrosse. He said it was the most fun game he has ever played. If you can play the game in the rain, playing the best team in the area, loosing 15-0 and still say I love this game well I guess you do.
Jack, I'm just happy you can play something you love.
Baseball games start next week...another game he loves playing.
I'll be spending most of time at the lacrosse fields and ball park watching my favorite player.
See you at the game,

I really want to sew!

I've been spring cleaning
and although it feels good to have the house clean
I really miss sewing and my favorite things to sew are...Raggedy Dolls.
I like to make them for every holiday.

I love strawberries.I love this school girl Annie.

And polka dots are my favorite.
I have just one more room to clean and maybe I will have time to sew.
Have a happy day,
