Thanksgiving and Christmas - Please Read

Thanksgiving is a BIG DEAL around here. We have relatives and friends for a day in the country, horseback rides, tractor rides, and just plain fun plus plenty to eat. But it does require some of my attention before hand. So any orders place 10 days before Thanksgiving day might be delayed.

If you're ordering for Christmas, order early, this is a one woman shop and I'm not as young as I use to be. No all nighters, 18 hour days, etc

My strength is my husband who is also my best friend. My most precious gifts are my grandchildren (1 beautiful preteen girl and 3 rough and tumble boys), and my Labradoodle Jada born on St Patrick's Day 2009.

This didn't have to go very far in the mail system. I have received items much sooner from MA, PA, etc. The item is nice but not 5 stars. The order was placed on the 16th and didn't leave until the 22nd. Not used to it taking 6 days before it is shipped out.

About

I finally arrived at the place I should have started.

Ever since I was a child, I have been interested in art, my mother use to say I was born with a crayon in my hand! Unfortunately I decided to forget about art (except for the occasional poster or drawing I would do at various jobs) and went through several different phases in my youth and didn’t get back to my first love until I approached middle age.

I began with oil painting, but found out that I would never be a great artist and couldn't afford it so I quickly switched to acrylics and decorative painting. I finally began my trip to creating and wanting to share what I loved, so I started doing local craft fairs and Farmers Markets. When I found I couldn’t compete with China and I was getting too old to lug all my creations around -loading and unloading - I knew I had to find something else to satisfy my need to create.

I started looking around for an answer to my dilemma and found fabric and the palette that it offered. I did something I thought I would never do, I took up sewing! I started with tooth pillows, and branched off to all the fabric crafts I do from there. Luckily I have a very understanding husband who doesn’t mind that our house isn’t always clean, meals aren’t 5 stars, and a semi-understanding labradoodle who just insists she gets her share of hugs and kisses.

My studio or sewing room is stockpiled with tons of fabric, but I know where everything is, most of the time.

I have separated my Children's Clothing from my Wallets, Purses, Hanging Towels, etc, please visit my Children's Shop at www.josiesclosetboutique.etsy.com
