This is the time of year when everyone says to themselves, look at all that Holiday eating, it went straight to my hips!! I am working up to finally shedding a
few, some substantial pounds. I am tired of feeling more tired than I should and am ready to have more energy! I am thinking of doing what works for me and that is more fruits and veggies, no snacking and less breads, sugars and empty carbs. I guess I should dust off that treadmill too. Oh Joy! I think I liked it better as a make-shift hanger.
In other news, be watching soon for another giveaway here!! I am excited to announce that I am working hard to get my first pattern ready for sale!. I am having trouble though, I cannot figure out a cute and catchy name for this pattern. SOOOO I thought I would have a NAME THAT PATTERN GIVEAWAY. :-) The suggestion I actually use wins! I will post a sneak peek of my finished doll soon, although there is much work to be done on the pattern itself. I will be offering my patterns in E-patterns and mailables.
I want to thank Kim of Old Road Primitives, and Carol of Buttermilk Creek Farms for thier encouragment to me on starting this pattern adventure! Sometimes all it takes is a gentle push from friends. I have over 24 years of experience in sewing and creating, so I do think I am ready to offer my ideas as patterns. I will have Carol and Kim critique the pattern before it is released so I know they are user friendly.
My tree is down and I am back to normal around here, Christmas is over and it is time to move on! I will be adding pictures soon to my painting tips page, I also need to fine tune it, but I am hoping that this will be helpful. My goal is to add enough pictures to that you can see some of the steps and techniques I use when painting.
I hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday!
