Unfinished projects and Free Patterns

A very nice lady named Cathi sent me a link to make up pdf files, so I have attached another free pattern of one of my You are Special patterns. I think I must be doing something wrong though, when I print it out it looks smaller than the original, so if it prints out smaller, just enlarge to desired size. I also got the prairie doll clothespin pattern printed up. Both are in the share box on the side. So be sure to get all the pieces. I will have the other snowman clothespin ornie ready tomorrow to download. Ran out of time today, don't know where it all went.
This Free pattern I am offering is called Gingerbread Annie. I know I have a lot of people have been emailing me wanting finished dolls lately. So I think dolls are going to be real popular this year.

Finally got my Simple Santa's finished today, here is the finished picture of this Santa. He is from our You are Special line also.

These are some of the gingerbread men I have gotten ready to go with the I love gingerbread Annie I was working on last week. Some are still kind of wet, but when they dry, they have a baked look to them.

Now, here I have a pile of unfinished snowman heads, I will try to get these finished this upcoming weekend. I have the rusty springs and everything, just need to do the noses, faces and hats and they will be finished.

This is a picture of the completed snowman heads I had at the show last year. They always sell out for me. One of my favorite items that I make. They are from a pattern by Sassafras Hills.

Picture of my display with the snowman on. Time to start working on updating my display. Shows will start in about 2 1/2 months, running out of time.

  10. You make me tired just READING what you do! Thanks for the free patterns.


  11. Thank you so much for the free pattern. She is adorable and I love gingerbread men! You have been one busy little beaver. All your projects are just awesome. I wish someone would tell me how to make pdf files. Have a great weekend, Valerie

  12. I just stumbled into your website and I think I'm in love. You are so kind to share your recipes and patterns! I LOVE the pictures of your craft show booth. You are one talented lady. I don't have time to do crafts anymore because I am raising my grandson. He is four years old and a special needs child. All my creativity is funneled into his care right now. You made me so homesick for the wonderful handmade gifts I used to make for Christmas! I enjoyed your post so much and I feel sure I could at least put together the room sprays to use this year! I can't believe you were willing to share all your info! Thanks for encouraging me and making my day. Blessings to you!

    P.S. The reindeer food sacks are just too cute! Are they pillows or are they filled with something?

  13. Glad the pdf thing is working out. If you think they are printing out at the wrong size, check the scale in the print dialog box. Somewhere when you click on print and the box comes up, there should be a section about "scaling" or "zoom". Make sure that box says "No Scaling" or "none". Sometimes printers automatically default to "Scale to page" or "Fit to paper" which is making the file fit the paper. Hope this helps.
