Purse Projects Completed and GO ROYALS!!

First, I have to say....GO ROYALS!!!  

I have been a Kansas City Royals fan since  I was a little girl.  I grew up 2 hrs north of K.C. and I still remember watching the Royals play the Cardinals in the World Series when I was 9 years old!  We had to hurry up and milk the cows so we could make it into the house on time to actually get to watch the game.

It still seams unreal that the Royals are really going to the world series, when we have almost consistently been at the very bottom of the rankings for the last 29 years!!  It's just so EXCITING!!

Anyway, back to my post! :)

Life has been a little crazy lately.  Sickness, teeth extractions, more sickness and just plain exhaustion.  I have days where I feel like sewing, but not blogging.  Then, I have days where all I want to do is blog and not sew.  Then there are days where I just don't feel like doing either and all I want to do is spend more time being a mom.  I actually also have days where I REALLY want to clean my house because I honestly cannot think if my house is too dirty.

With all that said, I have managed to complete some projects over the past 4 weeks.  I thought I'd share them with you today!  :)

I'm stocking up my Etsy shop with these cute little purses.  They are made using Simplicity Pattern 2617, if you are interested in making one for yourself.

I'll be linking up at THESE great parties!

**Don't forget to stop by tomorrow and link up to OUR FAVORITE THINGS PINTEREST PARTY where you can link up 3 PINS!  All pins are re-pinned by our hosts. ***

3 Things to Think About Before Shipping Your Crafts


I did some posts on how to brand your business a month or so ago.  There was the Creative Branding Ideas for Your Business post and the DIY Business Card Ideas post.  Well, I've been trying to work on this with my home based busines: Gina's Craft Corner.  My Etsy shop orders have picked up lately and a few weeks ago I had to ship out 2 packages in one week!  Woohoo!  I know, probably sounds pretty pathetic to some of you (LOL!).

5 Great Fall Pillow Tutorials Using Burlap

What says fall more than burlap??  How about burlap pillows!  Not exactly a pillow you would snuggle up with by the fire, but they sure look festive during the months of October and November.

If I had more time I would make pillows to set out for every season!  I just love having a different look in the living room every few months, and pillows are a great way to change things up.  I feed my need for change by simply rearranging the furniture.  (hey-it doesn't cost me anything).  My husband jokes that he never knows what the house will look like when he gets home!  (LOL!!)
