New Doll and Giveaway!

Hey ya'll! I know it's been a whole week since I last posted but MY GOSH have things been springing up all over in our lives lately!

I finally got a chance to finish up another doll before starting back to work on Monday. I didn't have a name for her and thought she was a plain jane so I think I may just name her Plain Jane...not sure yet.

Anyway...she will be listed in all of my shops this weekend. (as of writing this post, she is not listed anywhere).

Ok...on to more news...

It's been awhile since my last giveaway, so....I'm thinkin we need to have one! Problem is...I'm not sure what to give away. I thought about a custom blog...patterns, ornies, I just don't know!

SO....I am gonna leave it up to you all! Throw your ideas out there for me to see what we can come up with. If I use your will receive a gift from me. I can't tell you what that gift is due to my it will be something (other than air too!).

Let's hear your ideas. Just leave me a comment on THIS post and I'll sift through. As soon as I hear an idea that strikes my fancy, I will let you know and start the giveaway!

And if I don't get any ideas from you...well...then we are two peas in a pod and you are just as indecisive as I am! LOL

Good Saturday morning everyone! Just a quick note to let you know that I finally got the printable hang tags listed on my website. I have six sets so far, each with 6 different tags!

I think i'm addicted to making them (standing up) My name is Mandy and i'm a tagaholic (waving) :-)

Here is the link for them...

I also have them listed over at The Pattern Cupboard, Etsy and Digiprintables. You can find the links over to the right of the screen!

I will be working on scanning photos today for a memorial video I need to get done this week before going back to work on the 30th.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Adding another one....this set is for doll collectors...

I am very excited to be going back to work full time! I've been off since June 30th of 2008 due to our OPLOC being under BRAC. In other words, the federal government decided to downsize and close many bases and entities within certain bases. My new job, again, is with the federal government at the same Army base as I was before. I've been working on getting this job for over 5 months Gotta love the government...everything is a "process" and takes forever.

Anyway...I enjoy working from home but am so used to always working full time outside the home too. Don't worry...I'll still be crafting! I don't plan on slowing down...working outside hasn't stopped in me in the last 8 years and it wont stop me now!

I'll have some new products due out shortly and i'll give ya a sneak peek! Digital scrapbooking items. Right now, I will be focusing on hang tags and may add more in the future. I figure since I was already doing graphics, I may as well find another venue for them!

New Easter Bunny Egg Fairy & Grand Opening Giveaway!

Sorry about the delay between posting everyone. We had another passing and had a family viewing today. UGH...I am almost numb to all of this at this point. It just seems to have been a real string of bad luck this last month.

Anyway...on to more positive things. Today is the Grand Opening of the Soatp Emporium! They have some really awesome artists over there and they are giving away some really great prizes! So be sure to scoot on over and get yourself entered!

Lastly, I FINALLY finished a piece I was hoping to finish earlier last week but didn't get the chance. This is a little bit different style for me but I am happy, for the most part, at how she turned out. You can check out my ebay to see her auction and more pics!

It's been an exhausting weekend so I am retiring early tonight. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves this weekend and have a wonderful week ahead!
