My day...

I can't believe it's going on 5:00 already! The day really sped by. This morning I worked on a few final pieces for a large wholesale order containing hundreds of pieces. Then I added the identification labels and hooks for all the ornaments. Then I spent several hours (wow...hours?) packing it all up safely for it's trip overseas. When I was packing it up I realized I was missing two skiing Santas...so I had to stop and make some, which are drying as we speak.

While working on those Santas, Paige got into a her snuggly mode. She jumps on my lap and drapes herself over my left arm (always the left)...rendering it almost useless. It's so hard to resist her when her smiling kitty face looks into mine in a "I'm so happy right here...in this exact spot...on your arm" kind of way. She slows my progress somewhat for the remainder of her stay.

It's been a while since I've made non-custom wedding cake toppers. It was lots of fun and I pulled out and played around with lots of fancy materials that I rarely use. These toppers are heading off to Japan.

Phew! That's a lot of pieces! No wonder it took so long to pack. I started these pieces months ago and it feels good to be finished with them. Accomplishment!

This sweet little girl is part of a smaller order going to the Taft Museum in Cincinnati. Ok...I better start packing that one up right now! :)

Oh...and my shelves are coming along great! I just need to add the baseboard and the crown molding and then it's done! Yippee! I think I'll have time to make us a dining room table too...tonight I'm going to raid the loft of my dad's barn for some nice old wood.

And Oh yeah...this week I'll be having a give away! Hint...it's really awesome...but probably not what you think! Stay tuned!
