Time simply just does fly!

So much new news! I'm loving the opening up that has happened in my creativity, and in my life. I'm loving not being a restaurant manager and having to leave my kids. I'm so grateful for all the support and love sent to me by YOU!
This is what I really want to do next. I want to make puzzles using nine blocks. I thought it would be simply awesome to put a puzzle in a case. Dream with me now....imagine one side of the blocks with a name (if the name doesn't take up nine blocks, some could just have characters or designs.) the other sides with different picture puzzles.

What if it was a puzzle of the child's family. What if I made a puzzle family. Each block had a name and a photo of the relative, so you could either line up all the names or faces. For example "Aunt Memee" on one side, and my beautiful face on the other side???
Wouldn't that be cool? Obviously I'd have to pull out my math skills so I don't mess it up. The difficulty level may be above me. lol

I joined Etsy a couple weeks ago and LOVE it! I just had no idea people knew what they were talking about. Kristen, I shall make it public that you told me so before anyone else! About the 50th time I heard it though, I signed up. I've gotten so many orders from I've started shopping on there! Have you seen some of the things there? Wow...if I ever run low on inspiration I shall just go to Etsy.
If you live in Canada and want to order, please get your order to me on or before December 1st.
If you live in the States, please get your order to me by December 10th.

Umm.....I believe I've emptied my head sufficiently now. Here are a couple photos I like of some recent work.

I'm so excited about Christmas this year. I wanted to send a quick message out to all of you and let you know that my turn-around times may be a little longer. If you are considering ordering blocks for Christmas for friends and family (or yourself :) you may want to start considering what you'd like. It would be most helpful if you ordered sooner than later. I know the post office tends to get bogged down close to Christmas as well.

I've started doing wall hangings. If you haven't come by for awhile, please come and take a look. I'd love your feedback. I can match blocks to any wall hanging to create a really nice little set too!

I also wanted to include some gift ideas for the holidays. I've listed them below.

Teacher Blocks
Photo Blocks for Grandparents of their grandchildren.
Using the Decor blocks, spell out a last name. It looks great on a mantle!
ORNAMENTS!!!! Personalized ornaments, photo ornaments, character ornaments...etc...
Pet Photo Blocks
Vacation Memory Block that includes the date, destination and photos!
Customized Traditional Blocks in antiqued wooden case!
....and so much more!

What can you dream up? I'll do that for you!

Thanks so much to all of you for your encouragement and support! Continuing through Dec 31st, we will be giving 15% profit from every sale to Divine Inheritance. They are a phenomenal group. Please visit their website for more information!
If you know of a children's charity group that you would like to recommend for the new year, I'd love to hear about it!
Blessings to you all! Thanks again for your support!
