Christmas is right around the corner

I can't believe it's the 20th already. I have so much to do to get ready for Christmas. My big thing is that I've been making blankets for my girls. I've finished one, but I'm running out of time for the other. Oh well, she's only 9 months, I'm sure she won't care too much.
I haven't really been making too many things for the business lately. I worked real hard last week to get ready for the Sugared Plum. I made onesies, bibs, burp cloths and pacifier clips, along with a couple of new blankets. The boutique itself turned out to not be very profitable for me. Oh well, that happens. I've done pretty well online this month though. I hope it continues after the first of the year. I have a lot of new ideas for some blankets and other stuff. Here's a picture of one of the onesies I did last week. I appliqued matching designs from my blankets onto onesies. They really turned out cute. This is the only one I've posted so far. So keep your eyes open for a bunch of new stuff!

The Sugared Plum

So, much to my husbands chagrin, I am doing another Craft Boutique. Actually he's very supportive, it's just a busy time of year. The Sugared Plum boutique is going to be held in Herriman on December 14th and 15th from 10am-7pm both days. It's going to be held in a house that is for sale and there are quite a few vendors signed up for it, so I hope that it has a really great turnout! This month I have been mostly working on some things for my girls and getting Christmas ready, but this week I am busy at the sewing machine again trying to finish up a few things for the boutique. I always get kind of frantic when I'm preparing for one of these. I keep thinking of all these ideas of things I want to make and I feel like I just need to hurry and get more things done so I can sell them. I really hope I do well at this one. I could use a good boost before Christmas time. Anyway, wish me well. I'll be back after to report how it went. And if you're in the area, come and visit.
