This book just happened to be sitting on my desk and I thought it was quite appropriate to our situation. Although the little girl clutching the cat at our house isn't quite this lady like. She's every bit as happy to have a kitty to hold and cuddle, though.

No, we didn't adopt an eight legged cat, Sugarwings is carrying them both.
Everywhere she goes.
Plus, she has other things on her mind, like learning how to walk and celebrating her first birthday this week!
There was no school on Friday and Sugarwings kept me hopping. That and the new kitten/lost kitten/ new kitten/ found kitten excitment that we had. Then, along came the weekend including a concert, a fun craft day with Beth, a big family dinner, and before I knew it, I'd missed three days of getting photos posted in the shops.
But I did get a chance to make some new things!
These decorated 1" wreaths are in the Boutique.
And their ready to be decorated cousins are in my Etsy shop.
There are lots of trees added to the Etsy shop, I got to work on listing some Monday afternoon. The white ones are always popular.
Some of my paper clay fairies are now in the shop too. This one is made on a vintage cake topper.
And this one sits on a wallpaper covered box.
Her eyes are vintage crystals taken from an old necklace. I pushed them into the wet clay, then added a black sequin crystal pupil, and painted the rest of the eye. They really have a nice sparkle when the light hits them.
I'll leave you with some photos of more new stuff listed. There is more to come too. I'm wrapping up purchases today and will have more photos taken to list goodies after that gets done.(thanks so much to you shoppers out there!) I also need to get pictures of all the new things I've been making. It sure felt good to get some time to sit at the worktable and mess around with all my toys!
