I received this little wood elf from Lolly Trolley over on Craftster for the Poppet swap 3! She's adorable and I had a blast taking pics of her at work. I also received a snow dragon for a pet for my winter poppet Fable from the 1st poppet swap! I plan on taking some wonderful snowy pictures this weekend of the 2 of them together.
I named this little gal Fay! She reminded me so much of a fairy, only with no wings. I know she's an elf, but Fay just fit. She makes a wonderful addition to my poppet family! Thanks Lolly!

he Tumbler. She delights in giggling as you stumble over your own feet, get tangled up in tree roots, or slip on hidden ice. She's always there to lend a helping hand!

I 'd share another picture from my work. I took this a few days ago, because the color is unreal! It looks altered, but I assure you it is not. I'm not a photographer by any means, but I do love those macro shots! So for now enjoy the color and hopefully I'll be able to post some crafty goodies by Monday!

The magic machine is my old trusty sewing machine that changed my life. It is an ancient Dressmaker brand green monster that has quite a history. It started out belonging to a great aunt of mine who was an avid seamstress and liked to have the top of the line equipment. Well, old green went out of style for her quickly and she was just about to toss it in the trash when my grandpa saved it from certain doom and took it home to grandma. Grandma used it for years and then passed it on to my mom who used it for common mending and making a bunch of denim quilts. When I moved to Idaho it came with, even though I had no idea how to sew! It collected dust and then made the trip back home with us. I stumbled upon Craftster and decided I could master the magic machine! With the help of the poppet pattern and good old trial and error I became a whiz! I wouldn't trade it in for a new top of the line machine! It has helped me to craft so many things that have made so many people happy, including myself. To watch a work of love go under that foot gives me so much joy. So there you have it my story of the magic machine! A part of my life that can never be replaced! It may be old, a bit tattered, and dirty, but it is shiny and new in my eyes.

Tink made it to Canada in one piece! Jenny was kind enough to send me the first reaction pics of her little one Belle! This is the first picture she took! Look at that smile! Really makes my day! She'll also send me some pics when they go to Disney later on.
It makes me feel so good to see such a smile on a little ones face. It makes everything worth while.
Thanks so much Jenny for putting a smile on my face today!

right after I finish this entry it is off to the craft dungeon until work time!
I made this cute little platypus for a swap recently on Craftster. My partner's user name was The Platypus Project so I thought it was perfect! I found the pattern online and gave it a whirl. He turned out so soft and cuddly even though he was smaller than I had wanted.
Well I'm off to make something creative! Who needs breakfast anyway right??!!

In other news, today I start work! Uhhgggg! No more crafty afternoons! I get up early in the mornings to do my computer stuff and craft for an hour or so before I leave, and that keeps me sane! In case you don't know what I do for a living, my family runs a fully operational greenhouse. Meaning I start planting today! I'll be a muddy, wet, cold mess for the next long while.
Off to play in the dirt now!

I took her out to the snow to take some finished pictures. I love the natural lighting! I'm so happy with her! I'll be boxing her up tomorrow and sending her away! I can't wait to see pictures of her at the Magic Kingdom! I guess this way a little part of me get's to visit the one place I've always wanted to go!

I just had to share a photo of my little furry monster. I swear he usually doesn't look this evil. He was napping and just as I went to snap the pic he opened that eye and gave me the worst stink eye I've ever seen!
