So, it's been a while since I've posted, and I feel so left out of the loop! Thank you everyone, for all your sweet responses to my last post. Reading your comments REALLY cheered me up. I felt much better and got over my sad feelings - so thanks!
Getting this in the mail cheered me too - look what I won from Michele over at This Good Day! Isn't it sweet? And she threw in another beautiful tag that I wasn't expecting - and all of it was beautifully wrapped in tissue tied with seam binding. Thank you so much Michele! I love it!

And here's some new projects I've been working on. I made these trees and I really liked them. I'm going to try some more with non-traditional colors soon like pink and blue. I think that will be cute.
I've also started working on some new stuffed houses - here's a mini one just for fun and I'm working on a bigger one now. I don't know why I love them so much, I just do! Anyone else like houses as much as me? I have bird houses, doll houses, mini houses - all over my house - I think it drives my husband nuts! But I can't help it! I'll post the new ones soon.

And here's another project I forgot to post before - it's my "Jolly" letters from Say It With Letters. I decorated them in a kind of non-traditional color scheme and I can't wait to hang them up on my wall. After Halloween is over, of course!


Have a wonderful week, everyone, and thanks again for your kind comments - you're awesome friends! :)

As soon as I went to Deb's blog this morning and saw the "jolly" I just knew!!!! You have a signature look that is bright, whimsical and fun! You have a knack for putting fabrics or patterned papers together to get a big effect. Love it! Your new Trinkets are adorable, too. Are you going to do any "Laurie color" Christmas buttons? (I also loved how you trimmed your letter in trinkets-cute, cute, cute!) Can't wait for Deb to announce this year's swap. I look forward to it every year. Thanks for being such a sweetie! xoxo

I love your bright colors! I wish we had a place to buy fabric around here. I have to find a quilter's shop. Your letters look so good from SIWL.

Hey Miss Star! I just posted details on our ornament swap this year. :) I think Miss Joyce (and I) would be disappointed if you didn't join. :)
