Brrr...

My face and toes are still slightly numb from my walk this morning. The ground was covered in a thin glaze of ice and I could see my breath as I walked. There is nothing like freezing cold air to wake you up out of the morning fog.


I am looking forward to the snow arriving here in Bend. Yes, after 5 years I still love the snow. It definitely beats the cold, windy and rainy winters I grew up with.

I've been working like a crazy women to get custom buttons out for my customers who are using them on their own projects for Holiday Bazaars and such. I created a super cute set for one of Steve's coworkers. Apparently her little one is in to "Old MacDonald," so a farm theme was the request.

Oh, this was SO fun. Here is what I created for her. I hope she likes it :)

This was another special custom request. Pinks, blue, raspberry, lime green with lots of flowers and a little felt bird to match.

There is a new challenge at the http://www.cardalicious.blogspot.com/. This week's challenge was to create a card using: Hand stitching, felt and buttons. I used one of my felt tea cup appliques from my shop. Cozy and cute, don't ya think?



Well, I better get focused. I have about 35 sets of buttons to create this week, as well as about 8 large custom design orders. I suspect late nights, early mornings, coffee and good music will be in the works for the remainder of the week!




Hope you are all having a wonderful week. Don't forget to check out our Artist Feature: Kristina Proffitt below, if you have not already :)


If you have not visited my fan page, you don't know, but we have some more great Featured Artists lined up for the rest of the year! I'll make an announcement in the next blog post!

Stay tuned, friends :)
Have a great week!

Hi Tessa, thanks for you nice e-mail. Yes, the store closing is bitter-sweet, I'm anxious to spend more time at home and creating, and getting my stuidio organized. I will miss most of my customers...not the cranky ones (you know what I mean :) and I won't miss the whole 'dealing with women' thing. I've missed you the past several months...have been checking your store and blog out. Your buttons just keep getting better...they are absolutely adoreable!!!
Hope you and Steve are both well, tell him 'hi' for me =!

Miss you,
Suzie
