We went Christmas shopping!!!!!!!!!

Anyone who knows me knows that I wait until Christmas Eve to do most of my shopping. I can never decide what to get, or don't have enough money! This year I opened a Christmas savings..... not much, but enough to make sure my kids get presents on Christmas once!

We bought some fun toys for Ash... I thought he needed some little cars and trucks to push around, so we found some cute ones half price at Kohl's. We got him some warm jammies.... green with froggies all over them. We were looking at some Bears outfits, when a little boy started yelling "Mommy.... they took my jammies... my froggy jammies".....and kept it up! We decided to look at slippers in another area instead! People looked at us kinda funny!

Winter already spent most of her Christmas money....... she found some shirts, socks, gloves, and a hoodie. She is way to practical! I think she has enough for a video game left! Tomorrow we will buy her a video game she wants for her birthday... she will be 17 in 13 days! Jeremy will be 26 on Thanksgiving! Where do the years go?!?!?!?

Circuit City had an ad out that said if you bought 2 Wii games, you got $20.00 off. We were going to buy the one Winter wanted, and one for Joe...... but the cashier said it was a typo in the ad... it only applied to some cheap older games. There were no disclaimers in the store, and that section of the instore ads were all missing. It will take a REALLY good sale(or giveaway!) for me to ever go there again!

Well gotta go figure out dinner... the males are crabby and hungry!

Have alot to make and list tonight.... so I will post some pics tomorrow!

So Much To Say!

First I wanted to show you this gorgeous locket I won in an etsy forum thread! I just love her work.
Right now Winter is wearing it, and doesn't show any signs of sharing! Check out her shop....

She said it's being sold in a museum right now for $68.00! She is VERY generous with her giveaways!,898,899

Winter will have to become more willing to share, as I believe Autumn will want to wear it sometime!

I had a nice lady make a special request for a necklace. It's a bit out of my comfort zone.... but I think it turned out nicely! I believe I will be making more of this type in the future! This necklace sells for $25.00. She also bought a matching bracelet and earrings. I think I will make this necklace for my friend Darlene for Christmas....... She loves jewelry!

I have to get busy and make more bookmarks... they are selling like hot cakes! I have everything ready to go... I just have to clean up my work area!

Oh my goodness.... I looked in Autumns store today, and she had added the cutest Nintendo DS cases... Ninja Turtles, Thunder Cats, and Ghost Busters! What great ideas... I have been promoting them everywhere! Check out her mini etsy store at the bottom of this page!

And lastly, for now, Ash is not taking steps anymore... the boy is walking!!!! He walks right across the room! Nothing is safe anymore!

Busy Busy Busy!

Wow.... I had a busy week! I just sent out 17 packages... and still have 9 to pack up and get out! I need to have another great week... I am saving my etsy money to buy plane tickets for my daughter and her hubby to come here for my sisters wedding on New Years eve. I relisted this watch today..... it can be resized as needed!

I am still sorting through my beads and supplies for my destash store. I am adding sterling silver findings, and some Swarovski sparkles this week.

To change the subject....... Ash is starting to walk! He took 2 steps, then 3 steps.... then he walked 7 steps before he realized and sat down! He is doing soooooo good! He is also getting 3 more teeth. He will be so grown up when people finally get to see him at Christmas. He is 9 months old now.

It is 1 a.m. here.... and I still have work to do. I need to make more bookmarks, and I'm working on some stitch counters. Will post pictures, as soon as possible.

What The Hell?

Why is it when I go to look at my lovely followers blogs....... a NASTY updated blog for PORN... DISGUSTING PORN, SICK WORDS AND ALL is advertised there for all to see. If you didn't know me... you would think this is a favorite of mine... since it comes up in the number 1 spot!! How do I get rid of this NASTY advertising?

UPDATE!!!!!!! Somehow a porn site had appeared in my blogs I was following. It seems to have been from randomly checking out peoples blogs on etsy....... reading the first entry that they sent that day, nice .... clean ... interesting. THEN a few days later the ugly truth comes out... it's a porn site.... someone was going around the etsy forums posting in the show us your blog threads... then quickly showed their colors after they hooked us with kind words.
It is gone now... rant over!
Please check the blogs you are following... to see if you were hood-winked too!!!!

Well my store is already in the Christmas spirit. I added Christmas jewelry and cards to it the past few days! I ALREADY SOLD a pair of earrings, and 2 cards! I have a bunch more to add, but I am tired of listing for today. I have a special order to make for I promised her I would have pictures for her on Monday! I HAVE to get busy! I see I just sold sme more beads at .... I really have to take pictures and list there too!
I need to split into 2 people , so I can get things done! needs bookmarks, and I have an idea for one that will cost $17.00! It's really pretty!
Must get busy!
