Hello, My Name is Bennie.

Well meet Bennie. He is the latest addition to my turtle creations. I just think he is so cute. I really enjoy making these little guys and they a very popular with my customers. Thank you. You can't help but smile each time you look at the turtles.
See... he even smiles back. As with all of my turtles, Bennie will make a great pet for anyone. The best part is, he doesn't eat much and takes up very little space. If you would like one, feel free to pop over to my store or my Etsy Shop .

The End!!!

I've Been Tagged

OMGosh, my blog has been tagged by one of my crafty, blogging friends. Thanks to Debbie of Teddy Bear Gifts, I get to play along. It is a fun game played by some of the most creative people who blog. Basically, if you get tagged, you are to post 5 unknown things about yourself on your blog and then tag 5 more.

What you didn't know about me...

1. I love watching forensic type shows on T.V. I secretly would love to be a homicide detective or have the opportunity to solve cold case files.

2. I taught undergraduate computer course for a college. I really miss this as I loved working with the kids of all ages.

3. In my free time when I am not working on business, I love to bake and cook. I collect cook books of all kind.

4. My husband and I have been married for 4 years and there is a 14 year difference in our ages. In May, I will be a 38 year old grandmother. I don't have any biological children of my own, but have two loving stepson's who I love as though they were mine.

5. Along with my husband, my crafty friends inspire, encourage and support my creativity. They all are a true blessing.

Now....Tag! You're it.

Nothing but Cupcakes

Colorful glass beads make wonderful sprinkles for a crocheted cupcake. I was asked by a customer to create a cupcake for her upcoming wedding. She wants to use it as the ring pillow. Wow, I had never thought of using my cupcakes in a wedding. I was honored to create the cupcake using her wedding colors. I not only made one, but several for her to choose from. The one above was made using a bright orange yarn. I think it is pretty.

This one is made using a soft peach color yarn. It is one of the ones she picked. All the glass beads on this one are peach as well.

Another one she picked is this dark orange, almost pumpkin orange, cupcake. As I said, I really enjoyed working with this customer. Maybe she will send pictures of her wedding. I don't have these cupcakes on my website for sale, however, you can find them in my Etsy Shop . I so love doing custom work and seeing the end results.

Letting Go

Wow, time flies when life gets in the way and everything else around you comes to a screeching halt. My 2008 challenge of 52 new items was put on hold for a few weeks. This time was spent saying goodbye to my dear, dear grandmother. It is so hard to let go of someone so dear and near to my heart. However, until we meet again, I will miss you "Mother Bug".
