WIP Wednesday - Last One of 2017!

Anyone ready for a new year?  I still have stuff I'm finishing up from several years ago, but new year means new lists...maybe some good crafting resolutions, like using up my stash or de-stashing things I no longer love... Hmm, too bad I love it all!

WIP Wednesday - Countdown to Christmas!

So...only 5 days until Christmas is upon us...anyone actually ready??  My final order went out this morning, now to start working on everything else...and maybe catching up on sleep...I've been seeing a bit too much of 1 am in the last week...
Last purse...random picture because I don't want to reveal before Christmas!

All the Jack - Sydney Messenger Bag

Still one of the most popular bags that I get orders for, the Sydney Messenger Bag by Swoon (affiliated link) was thrown into the lineup for my Christmas rush.  This one wasn't for a present, but it did ship with a wallet that was a gift! 

Christmas rush means rushed pics...someday I'll plan ahead better, or hire a kid as a photographer...they work for cookies!

WIP Wednesday - Already/Only Wednesday!

I'm alternation between "Shew, it's only Wednesday" and "GAH, It's already Wednesday!!"  By this time next week, everything that is going to be mailed should have already gone out and I'll be frantically trying to finish up Christmas cards (probably?).  My list is actually getting marked off, so my stress level is moderate at this point.  If I can get 2 project done tonight, and stuff for the teachers either done or send in IOU's, I think I'll be at a good place.  Then I just have to do one purse and 3 blankets...I can sleep after Christmas!
Order delivered!

WIP Wednesday - Singlehandedly Keeping Coffee In Business

I'm sure I'm not the only crafter/sewologist/hooker/knitter/etc going full tilt and skipping out on sleep (I'll sleep in January).  Someday I'll be better at planning and setting realistic deadlines, but for now, the rush of last minute crafting is part of the fun!  Or, I could be at the stage of sleep deprivation where I'm loopy...although that usually that hits me at 4 am and I haven't stayed up that late, yet.
It really is crooked, the way it's laying on the machine makes it look straighter!

Elephant Brandt's Boulevard

Would you believe that I had only a few elephant prints in my stash?  It's true!  I had to search high and low to find any for sale, and then they were either a huge scale or baby prints...but this one is perfect!  And even on purple which was one of her favorite colors! I really love making the Brandt's Boulevard, it comes together so nicely and now that I've made several (maybe 4 or 5? I lost count) I can get them done pretty fast!
Colorful elephants!
