Small Notepad Holders

I've finally finished my smaller notepad holders for Christmas!! I'm VERY happy about that. They came out wonderfully well I think. I will definitely have to make some of these to sell. I think they'd not only be handy to carry in your purse, but very unique as well!

My Birthday

Today is my 41st b-day! Yay me!! Haven't really done anything special to celebrate. I believe the older you get, the less you care about making a big to-do about b-days. At least that's the way it is with me. But, here's what's happened so far today:

Mike made biscuits and gravy for breakfast (he even went to the store at 7 am to get the biscuits).
We went to the shooting range (always fun).
He took me to Compadres for lunch.
I took a nap.
I did laundry.
My Boogie Face called me (he's my great nephew--that was great!).

That's about it. Normal day lol. Tonight is the Steelers game but unless we go to the firehall, we won't be watching it. Can't get the channel that's airing it. Bummer there. Good thing it's just pre-season or I'd be mad.

My First Whimsy Doll

I'm so excited!! I made my very first doll from Bit of Whimsy! I decided to make the guinea pig for my great niece's 5th b-day--didn't she turn out cute? I realize her ears aren't exactly right, but I think that just adds a bit of character to her. I even decided to make a carrier for her so my niece could tote her around if she wanted.

I must say that the Bit of Whimsy designs are very easy to follow and fun to make!! You should check out her patterns. I have a link for her etsy store on my blog. If you're not a sewer then that's ok--she also sells premade dolls.
