My Fruity Friends

Meet my newest craft room buddies, Apple and Pear. OK, these little guys make me smile every time I see them as they just look so happy. Not a care in the world. My love for fruit and "trying" to eat healthy urged me to create these little guys. Although they are the size of the actual fruit, they are not edible and they will always be around. Oh, how I love their cute little faces.

The soft stuffed plushies can be used as cute whimsical shelf sitters. Or, if you like to sew, these can also be used as pincushions. Don't worry, the pins won't harm these guys.

I've listed these guys in my Etsy Shop. So, when you have time, take a peek and see what's going on. I'll be updating and adding new product throughout the next couple of weeks. I'll also be updating Crystal's Creations & Gifts with new items soon too. Stay tuned, some things are finally coming "off" the cutting table.

Just Ducky

Wow, can you believe it is July? Where does the time go? Am I really having that much fun? Of course I am. The sun is shining. The weather is oh-so-right. And... I am feeling just ducky. So much so that I had to create this little item.

When I saw this vintage style embroidery design, I just had to stitch it. I think this little guy is too cute. And, at the moment, expresses how I feel most days. I stitched this design on a heavy linen fabric. I thought it added just enough texture and adds to the vintage feel. I have a few other vintage inspired designs too. Maybe, one day down the road I'll get inspired to put these on a cute little quilt. Note to self... Go Fabric Shopping!
