A Giveaway, A Celebration and WIP'S

Wow I am just amazed that it is the middle of November, This year has just flown By. And I want to take a minute and do something personal...........

I want to Wish my Grandson a Late Happy Birthday his was in October, and tomorrow will be his mama's Birthday my middle child. Happy Birthday!! I miss you both and Wish there was a way to see you.

And day after tomorrow is my step daughters Birthday, this is her and her hubby. Happy Birthday to you!!!

And I want to remind you of a great Giveaway going on **Click here to Sign up for The Primitive and Folk Artists of Etsy**   Winter Wonderland Giveaway. There are Thirteen donations that one Lucky Reader will Win.  Also mark your calendars because starting this Friday The PAFA Team will be launching a Celebration on Etsy with some wonderful Handmade items for Winter.

Now..........yes I am busy still, I want to play with all my new spring fabrics I posted in my last post. I have made so many HUNDREDS of Christmas Ornaments !! yes you heard me I stopped counting because I was freaking out at the number or ornaments I was making LOL...........I only have a few more orders that are BIG and then I will start on Spring items.

I do want to share my WIP'S with you this is a sneak peak at a few of the things I will be adding to Etsy for the Celebration on Friday

Actually they are a little further along then pictured all I have to do is the finishing touches on them.
I have groups of started items like this all over the place. And YES I will get them done YES I will list them!!
**I Hope???? And if not they will go into next years Tote of WIP'S**

**YES my organized Work Area is all messed up again ALREADY**
I have out grown this tiny house if you notice in the next picture I have a big table sit up in my tiny Living room 

I am determined to finish my Holiday items this year.........I still have a tote of started items from last year that I never got back to!! my Goal is to finish that group early this next year to get a head start for next year LOL!

I have to address Boxes to take to the Post office this morning. And look does this show how Tired I am ??

I packed them upside down LOL.............I put arrows on them ladies so if you get a box from me, pay attention to the direction you should turn it to open it up?? Now Two of these Boxes are packed with Ornaments and The other one is my Swap going out to Amy, Yes Amy your box is upside down !! But I am proud that I met the deadline to get it shipped to you!!

I will get my errands ran Early this morning so that I can get back home and put on a Big Pot of Homemade Chili, and get to work, my day is going to be a busy one Today. Hope your day is Creative and Enjoyable

Hugs to all
