Happy New Year! You Tube Booty

But First!

I am happy to say that my blog was awarded a blog award on the Bambole Di Pezze! You can see who else was included here!

Now to celebrate my traditional new years i am uploading some of my fav you tube vids of the year, sometimes i list the best movies of the year, but i really didn't like many at all this year, as far as i am concerned the internet is way more entertaining!
I am listing them in order of cute to funny see the strange progression!

Many good wishes in the new year and my resolution is to keep my crafts going this year with the upcoming baby and all. haha we will see:P

I want to go here for my cute!

i think this is the one i have watched the most particularly the last cat" old don johnson get s me everytime!"

This song has been stuck in my head since...

the snow is melting! the snow is melting!

I have been hibernating like the squirrels in my neck of the woods for the last week, however
the snow gives me time to do house cleaning i suppose as i am pretty done with sewing for a while after all the stuff i had to make last month! I really want to make a little quilt for the baby and perhaps a bear with the mohair i just ordered, I am terrified to make a mistake with the mohair as it is not cheap..$$$!

I regret not taking pics of xmas, the turkey was sooo yummy and jayson and i made the best stuffing ever!! I am also posting calenders that i really like for the upcoming year so check them out if you are looking too!
Handprinted Calendar at Pistachio Press Etsy Store $35 with free shipping!

this one is from the joom etsy store for $20

I really want to make some calenders for next year, a small run of pics of my toys and cute

Zakka Pencil Boxes

These are the only two left from the craft show, i just saw the boxes and got the idea to make something out of them. I am keeping the one with the keys to myself, i like it too much!

Each box i stained with pickled white stain, this one is still for sale on my etsy!

Then i hand carved the mushrooms and key designs from stamp material and used stamp ink that is wood friendly to stamp onto the tops and voila! Zakka style boxes!

Online Christmas Shopping List!

With the Economy now and the government trying to shut down the craft business altogether i want to make a list of great stocking stuffers for everyone to support handmade because that money will stay in our country and that is happiness all around:D

The following is regarding the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). This Act, which will go into effect on February 10th, 2009, puts forth much more stringent safety measures for products intended for children under the age of 12.

Under the very important auspices of child safety, the Act may have grave unintended consequences: fewer choices for families who are looking for handcrafted alternatives. Many Etsy artists and craftspeople have expressed fears that they won't be able stay in business due to the burdensome cost of testing and certification pursuant to the proposed legislation.
