Working on orders and my Christmas present to myself

I am still trying to get caught up on orders. I finished up 5 of these today. These have done really well for me. But I have to say I am tired of making them. I have a couple of dolls, a Santa, and some reindeer to make, and then I think I might be finished on orders.

I am trying to get the Santa and reindeer pattern with the sled, finished up this week. Samantha will have a new pattern ready in the next day or so. She has got a new ornament pattern almost ready. She has really been selling the aprons. After her last giveaway on face book, she sold a bunch on Etsy and had some special orders.

Well, I splurged on me, I bought me an electric fireplace. I took out the sterno logs and inserted my electric log set. Luckily it fit, just barely. I love it. I just wish it was colder so it seemed more like winter. Going to be up in the 80's tomorrow.

I hope to get the rest of my Christmas decorations finished up this week. Trying to talk hubby into getting up on the ladder and putting up the lights outside. I may have to do that myself.

Hopefully the blog sale will start on Thursday. I hope to get in the trailer tomorrow and start taking pictures of the leftovers from the show. So keep checking in, I will post the night before when it is going to start.


  1. Beautiful fireplace Sandy. It has been chilly here in Arizona..a fireplace would be nice.

  2. Hi, Sandy, the stockings are adorable, but I guess I can understand why you would be tired
    of making the same things. I love 'em, though.
    The fireplace looks really pretty, good for
    you that you got a present for yourself.
    About time!
    Happy Holidays,

  3. we're having crazy weather like that too / 70's/80's one day droping into low 30's the next, now it's poring rain & freezing, the fireplace is beautiful, I say turn her on & crank up the air LOL LOL

  4. Sandy, that Fireplace is to DIE for! The stockings are super cute! Will have to come back and see your blog sale!! Good luck with getting the hubby on the ladder. Mine did it this year and I didn't even say ONE thing to him....go figure!!!

  5. Hi Sandy~

  6. LOVE your new fireplace Sandy! I am super excited about the blog sale. I have so many of your Christmas items and love them all. I would love to add to my collection.

  7. I love the fireplace! You'll really enjoy that! And I can't wait for your sale...I'll be back as soon as you let us know! Thanks! ♥

  8. Gorgeous fireplace!!! And so much easier (and cleaner) than the wood kind like we have! It's been cold and snowy here - but still no fire. Boo hoo....(It's hubby's job - as are the lights outdoor - and neither are his favorite things.....) Looking forward to the sale....hope I can pop in for it (and hoping you have some reindeer!!) ;o) Happy, happy, Tuesday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  9. The new fireplace is so pretty. We bought one similar to it earlier this year. We actually had snow yesterday here in Alabama, which is odd for this month of the year. It is very cold here as well :)

  10. Your stockings are so cute!! Your fireplace looks so warm and cozy...80? I wish, we are brrr cold here but not snow...Have a great day!
