I must have a fabric addiction!

I don't seem to be able to stop buying fabric.  I check every day on ebay, etsy, artfire, twitter and the numerouse fabric sites I have to see if there is something I have to have or if a fabric I am almost out of is available.  It is crazy!  I just bought fabric today that I really didn't need but wanted.  I love Patty Young.  She has some great fabrics and she just came out with some new ones.  I had to buy some from her new fabric today.  Here is one of her fabrics I did a board from:

Amy Butler is my Fav!

I fell in love with her Lotus group and this is one of the fabrics
What do you think?  It is different.

Here is a new Board!

I have gotten some Amy Butler fabric that I can make one board from and here is one of them.  I just thought instead of buying lots of fabric for one board, I would just try enough fabric for one board and it would be one of a kind.  I love Amy Butler fabric.  What do you think?

Check out this board!

Here is another board I made to go in my Western Collection.  I didn't realize that there weren't many western memory boards available in the market so I am hoping I have a new thing going.  I put a concho in the middle and instead of using ribbon I used leather strips.

I have made ten boards

I am so caught up in Western Material that I have been making boards in several and now I have 10 boards and really no buyers.  I think they make great looking boards but I am not sure if they are going to sell.  My son picked up 5 to take to his church tonight because he thinks he can sell them there. But I guess I will have to wait and see.  I just didn't know there was so much fabric out there until now.  I am really hoping I can find a market for it because I have not found any other western boards for sale and this may get me out of the designer fabric I have been doing boards in for a while.

Its Crazy time!

I decided to retire and work more on my shops but I have let my blog go.  I have been busy creating new boards for my shops, trying to promote but just not adding any info to my blog.  I will try to do better.  Here are a couple of boards that I have been working on.  I have tried to go with the western them right now to add a new collection to my shop.  They are fun to make and I have added a few things to make them  interesting.

Well !

It was a beautiful day today but I just enjoyed hanging at the house.  I am shipping some boards to a consignment in Rhode Island and sold a board that I will ship in the morning.  It has been slow so I am grateful for any traffic I have.  I was so busy at the first of the month selling boards left and right then it just stopped.  I am not sure why but I guess with spring break and easter there were other things to do besides shop on the computer.  Check out my etsy shop and see the new boards I have listed.  My goal is to have 200 boards in my shop by Christmas!

New Boards!

I have been buying fabric like crazy to build more boards.  It is like an addiction.  I will see a fabric I like that I think will make such a pretty board and even try to not buy it but sadly I can't leave it alone.  I buy on line a lot and a new fabric line came out that I loved but thank goodness it was flannel and fleece only so I was able to pass it up.  There are so many interesting fabrics out there, so many creative designers that I have to check them out.  They give me great ideas for boards.

Finally Sat is here!

I wish I could just do my boards but I have to pay the bills and can't do that with my boards.  I have to work so off I go today and then I will be off tomorrow.  I would probably get lazy if I didn't have my full time job so it has to be a good thing.  I have made several boards out of Melissa Averinos fabric and this is one of them.  I love her fabrics.  This is one of my favorite fabrics that I made.  Check out my shops to see the other boards I have in her fabrics.

I am thinking Spring!

I have been waiting for the weather to change to spring and I have been looking at spring fabric.  I have found some fabrics I really like.  There are so many cute things at Etsy that show how crafters are getting ready for spring. check out her shop she has some beautiful flowers pics that will give you a breath of fresh air. 
Here is one of my spring items:

Check This Out! has a lot of knitted items that are so nice.  She has an apricot and carmel cowl that is to cute.  Check out her store for knitted hats and dishcloths.  You may find something that you can't do with out.
I was asked to make this board for a guy who loves flannel shirts, that is all he wears.  I found this fabric to make his board and he loved it.  My dnl said it was Tartan like, whatever it was something new I put in my shop.

Just another Day of Cold Weather!

I would love to stay home today and build new boards for my shop but my real job is what pays my bills.  It is not as much fun and requires a lot of my time.  Even as my sales have continued to increase in my shop, I still come home every night to build boards for my customers.   My fabric stash continues to grow as I am always looking at fabric to use for my boards.   I plan on putting more people on my blog in the future to show you how creative people are in their crafts.  It amazes me how many different things people can find to make.

Well Spring was short lived!

It started snowing about noon but it didn't stick just left a mess.  I was really hoping for spring.  I made a new board for a girl at work and I think it is so cute.  It has cats and kittens on it in a garden.  Lots of colors.  It is just so cute!  I bought more material to make more boards, I am like an addict when it comes to fabric.  I am always looking for something that will make a great board.  It is a good thing that I am selling some boards so I can buy more material.    By the way, I finally sold my 100th board.  That is quite a feat for me. 

What do you think?  You know what I think.

Its that time again!

I can feel spring in the air.  Today was almost perfect!  The only thing I had to work so I didn't get to enjoy the warm weather we are finally getting.  Check out this new shop it is the cutest shop.  Her work is great!  If you love your animals you will love her shop of animals that she makes.  They are so life like!  Please give her some support.

Check this new board! A customer requested a Southwest Board with these colors.  I am thinking it is Southwest but I could be wrong.  I just love the color of ribbon I used.

Thank you Artfire!!

I just checked out the new items added to my artfire shop and Love it!  Artfire seems to be on the ball about adding new things to shops and adding the urls to the items is great.  I can now see where my items were seen at.  I worked on my shop for a couple of days to besure I had all my boards there that were in my Etsy Shop.  It is great.  Have you checked yet?  She needs some support. She has great ideas for jewelry.
What do you think of my bird board?  I love the colors?  I am ready for spring

Check out this new shop!

LeeAlice has just opened her shop and really could use some help! Her ideas are unique and you might find something you can't resist buying. She is trying really hard to make this shop work for her. Also check my new boards in my shop. I have added several new boards since Christmas, some that I think are irrestible.
