this and that

'tis the season where i am making stuff like crazy.  the holidays.  they sneak up on you... quick, quick, quick.  feel like i'm pretty prepared this year.  but, we'll see!!  i hope you are all having a lovely weekend!






louie and the cooker say hi!  they'll be hibernating until spring:) 



xox..jenn

love you



hope y'all are having a good week!  
we had a little cold snap here and it's been completely rejuvenating!  such a treat to not sweat to death every time you walk out the door.  yep.  what are you up to this week?

famous last words


i really should know by now... not to make any grand exclamations about finishing work and organizing my life.  (couple posts ago).  often times, life has another plan for ya!  immediately after saying that last week... one of the boys got sick.  ugh.  and then i went down.  I've been dealing with chronic hives for a long time and i sometimes get huge swelling on my hands... (delayed pressure urticaria... so fun, not).  if i pull weeds (with gloves on obviously) or work with my hands for an excessive amount of time... my fingers and palms get huge, itchy swelling.  i'm painting a lovely picture for you, aren't i?  sorry:)

but the point is... i got it big time last week... after moving furniture around, etc.  and i couldn't work for days.  so all the custom orders i was finishing?  didn't happen.  i have to catch up this week.  and that's okay!  you have to listen to your body and go with the flow!  so i got some unplanned calm and relaxation and i'm easing back into this week.

and i get plenty of help from these two...



hope y'all have a great day!  here's to a brand new start... we get one everyday!  whew!  xox..jenn

i like old blocks

one of my favorite things to paint on is OLD wood.  just something about it.... adore the texture.  i painted up these cute halloween houses using some of my vintage blocks stash.  all hand painted and distressed.  have i mentioned i'm kinda obsessed with wonky plaids lately?  in the etsy shop now!







let's go...

hello monday,  i have big plans for you!  
it seems I've had more projects and work than i can keep up with, lately.  but today, that changes!  i'm getting this house organized and i'm getting ALL my current customs FINISHED this week.  i might even catch up on laundry.  i think that better be the end of the list.  that's a lot:)  it just seems everything takes me longer than i thought it would originally.  and that's okay!  sometimes it takes a little while to get into the groove.  that has certainly been the case with the new house.  but i think i'm on a little roll... moving some stuff around... i think it's working!  
definitely the case with my custom work too.  i can stare at custom notes for 2 weeks and just not even know where to start... and then it will hit me... and i do it!  my last round of doll orders has been like that.  i'm usually really good with deadlines.  they push me in a good way.  but with these dolls... they are so personal and special to the recipients... i want to get them right!  i still have a handful to finish and i'm excited to finish them up this week.  enough rambling... here are some recently finished gals.  (this is only a portion of them!)







aren't they fun?  love their little personalities.  
well, i better get to it!  
hope you have a super monday... sending you xoxo
