Please visit Spellbinders' blog for my latest tutorial.
I was given the theme of "Sports,"
but was also provided the out,
that if this theme was too difficult,
I could just create something "Fall" themed.
Not being one to easily shy away from a challenge,
I created a team spirit brooch,
saluting our local High School,
which both of my boys attended.
Wishing you all a lovely and spirited week!

This past Friday was the mailing deadline for the
"Masked Beauties" ATC swap.
Please check the status of your ATCs on my right sidebar,
and if I have not noted "mailed" or "received" next to your name,
leave a comment on this post to update your status.
Cards postmarked after Friday the 10th
are considered late and will be returned to you untraded.
Sorry to be such a stickler,
but it is just unfair to everyone who makes the deadline,
thanks for your understanding.

The design team was asked to fill in at the
Gilded Girls Stash Society
I created this project and a tutorial for the
Society's private blog.
How much do you love those sweet little glass leaves?
(info about joining GGSS can be found by clicking the
design team badge on my left sidebar)
enJOY a lovely week,

I promised myself that I was finished making pumpkins,
but while sorting through some things, I came across these darling metal leaves,
and beautiful candlewick fabric.
Then there were these pretty fabrics that screamed PUMPKIN!
(at least to me they did)
And these vintage blooms that I coffee dyed a few weeks ago.
They have all been listed in my aJOY2bheld shop.
A little side note about my Etsy shops:
I have always promised my customers 100% satisfaction,
and as such have never felt that I needed to take a prepayment or deposit on special orders
(with the occasional exception of a very large order or one requiring me to purchase special materials).
Of late, there is a growing trend for potential customers to request a special item,
communicate their specific wants,
agree on terms,
and disappear once the item is complete and listed.
This has happened to me 3 times over the past month.
Going forward, I find it necessary to ask for full payment in advance for any special orders.
I am heartily sorry that the actions of a few has forced me to make this policy change.
I appreciate your understanding.
One last little reminder:
(sorry, I know I am all over the place today)
"Masked Beauty" ATCs must be postmarked by next Friday,
that is one week from today.
I hope that our international swappers have already or are preparing to mail their ATCs.
I will now wish you a lovely weekend

It is that time of year again,
I have my Christmas music playing
(this year's favorites are Bing Crosby Holiday and Andrea Bocelli Holiday on Pandora Radio),
and I am sparkling head to toe in German glass glitter .
"Peace On Earth"
I am offering some small ornaments at very affordable prices,
this little quilt piece heart is one of them.
This is my first peat pot decoration,
I know I am years behind the trend.
"Let It Snow"
Thanks so much for visiting today.
en-JOY Your Blessings,
