Finally Catching my Breath After the Country Living Fair

Wow!!!!! I am still exhausted from the Country Living Show last weekend in Columbus, Ohio. It was an amazing and successful show!!!! Thanks to all of you that visited my booth and showered me with wonderful compliments and a very special thank you to all that adopted my crazy creations. The show was a non-stop whirlwind of business!!!!! I barely had time to take any pictures, so pardon the lousy shots.
Yes, I am very camera shy but here I am (the tall redhead) with my awesome sister-in-law Sarah. I could not have done it without her! She is amazing. She was my anchor in times of all crazy thinking and stress ( about 98% of the show- tee hee) My other anchor was my beloved hubby that was on serious "daddy duty" for the last week. He did a great job keeping our little ones out of my hair and the muscle man behind my booth design/set up.

It was a cold and wet Friday morning but the weekend just got better and better from there. I learned many lessons in regards to booth set up. Lots of re-working for next time. Well, I am back to do what I love to do most - CREATE!!!!!! I have yet more new works underway and will be loading some works to my Etsy site soon. I have more exciting news to post later too- think Prims magazine Fall issue (hint, hint)! Cheers - Lurena

No Dear Smidge, This is not for you.........

One of my beloved cats (Smidge) is very interested in my little hat I just fashioned for one of my dolls. She is now begging me to make her one in a sassy pink with an ostrich plume and silk fringe. Oh, she is such a tart!

September Brings Fall Wishes.........

It is a cool, rainy, Fall like day today - my favorite! It has been a while since I have posted here in Blog land and the clock is ticking for the Country Living Fair. It is hard to believe that it's just a few weeks away. Yikes! I have been sewing feverishly and spending lots of time in my land of enchanted thoughts and characters. This angel is one of my favorite creations for the Country Living Fair.

She is wearing a warm Autumn color pallet - but I must admit it was hard parting with these wonderful vintage buttons I've had stashed away.

So, here is wishing you all a wonderful and magical start to the Fall season. I will try to post a few more sneak peeks before I pack it all up for the show! Cheers, Lurena
