Book Fair Week Is Done!!!

Man why oh why do I insist on being the book fair chairperson!!! Of course because I love books and I love my daughter. It just takes up sooo much time. But it is done. and while I was there I got more orders from teachers needing embroidery. lol. so I squeezed in two shirts for a baseball mom and of course I forgot to take pictures, but I did remember to take pics of the outfit for my daughters former teacher. It is too cute. She came up with the saying I just did the stitching. The fonts are the #355 Zebra filled font

and the #147 Curlyque from AKDesigns Boutique. Angie has alot of great fonts in different sizes you can use for just about every item imaginable. Back to my machines I have more dolls to make and some Koozes to finish. Enjoy your day.

1st order done

Yeah! I got my first order done. I made a Kimberbell doll with two outfits for one of my mom's coworkers. If you haven't tried this pattern yet it is great. Super easy and fun. The Queen of hearts outfit and Gift giving outfit is great to. I sold this one for $45 for the set. I am trying to raise money for my daughters cheerleading. Everylittle bit helps since I am a Stay at home mom.

What I have been up to!!

Last week we had a silent Auction for my daughter's school. I hate to call businesses and ask for donations. And each PTA board member is required to bring 10 donated items. Sooo I just make things to donate. I took a bow board for hair bows, a bulletin board that said Jacks which is the peewee team for this area, a towel set that had a football player and a cheerleader that said Jacks (that I embroidered my self, okay the machine did but hey) two Kimberbell dolls one light skinned and one darker skinned each with two outfits, a crocheted bag and blanket with a little doll, a chili pot gift set, and a wheat sack and sleep mask gift set, a size 18 month outfit with a t shirt bloomers and tutu, and a baby bouquet. Plus my mom made a bracelet and two bead people necklaces. Unfortunately not all my things got bids, but we raised over $1000 with all the other things that were sold over the course of the evening. And wouldn't you know I ended up getting 5 or 6 orders from people who saw the things I had made. I had pretty much decided I couldn't keep trying to run my business and I get new orders. Yeah!!
