Embroidery Business

Hi Ladies,

If you've checked my blog lately you will see I'm going in another direction.  I recently bought a Babylock Flourish Embroidery Machine.  I'm seriously making an effort to go into business selling my items, so you'll barely see Paper craft items posted. To those in Paper crafting, I will understand if you don't want to follow me anymore and remove me from your blog.  I do hope though, you might see something I post, that you might be interested in buying.  I'm just getting started with my business so I've got alot to learn about how to go about it.  Check in ever so often!  You might see something you like!    

Embroidered Place Mats

Decided to make some place mats and embroider them.  I'd like to make some to sell if anyone is interested in using them as gifts or for yourself.  Take a look.  These embroidery designs are from DesignsByJuJu.

Since my mom's death I realize the importance of utilizing the creative skills the Lord has given me.  Don't waste time wondering if what you create is any good.  Enjoy your creativity!  I've decided to maybe slowly go into business creating Sewing, Embroidery and Paper craft items.  I even have an Embroidered Logo!  Check this out!

These are the Keyfobs I'm working on now.  I recently purchased a Baby lock Flourish Embroidery Machine and I want to embroider everything!

They're selling pretty good!  They make great gifts.  I'm preparing for a Craft Event here in Chicago in July.  So I better get busy!


Hello Lovely people!  I've been away for quite some time.  Boy, do the years pass by.  Sadly, my mom passed away last week.  It was expected.  She wanted to be at home with family during her last days.  We had her on Hospice Care.  We had a very good experience with Hospice.  They supplied all we needed to make our mom comfortable during her last days.  Her transition was slow but painless. We thank God for that. We prayerfully believe she accepted Christ before she left this earth. From her wisdom we learned to be kind, considerate and self sufficient.  She raised 4 daughter mostly by herself.  RIP Mom.  We will meet again!  LOVE YOU!

Hi Lovely people,

Who knows what Mug Rugs are?  I didn't know until recently.  Was playing around on YouTube and discovered them.  They are actually small placemats, usually 6x10inch in size.   They are used to place your coffee or tea mugs on and maybe a cookie, biscuit or Cell phone .  I fell in love with them after making one for myself.  See below:
 Isn't it cute?  So guess what I did?  You know I usually make Christmas gifts for my Sunday school class each year, so I decided these would be perfect as gifts.  So I made 20 of them!  Each different in some way.
I just love them!

What do you think?  Can't wait to hand them out.  I might add a packet of Cocoa mix or Instant coffee to give with them.

Anyway, thanks for taking a look and as always, I love comments.

A Special Gift

Hi everyone!

How are things going with you all?  I'm blessed.  No major illnesses or catastrophes in my immediate family that I know of, so I'm happy.  Oh, I forgot, there is a little setback in one of my son's life but with prayer I think things will work itself out.

Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner(are we forgetting about Thanksgiving. I've already started making my Christmas cards.  I  can no longer send out store bought Christmas cards.  People expect handmade cards from me at all times.  Does anyone else have that dilemma?

Below is one of my first Christmas card that I will be sending out (I don't know to who yet). I thought this image from QKR-Special delivery was so appropriate for the sentiment.  Tell me what you think!

Materials used:
Sentiment is a Rubber stamp by Stampendous
Design Paper is from My Minds Eye Christmas Pack
Digi stamp by QKR (Special delivery)
Copic Markers
Bazzill card stock for card base
Bow made using WeR Memory Keepers Envelope Punch board
Adhesive Cut out borders by K&Company
