I’m Back……………

I have been so super busy!  I have been trying to get my 3 year old ready for preschool, my 6 year old ready for 2nd grade, and apparently this month is the hot month for me to make cakes!  I am just now starting to get back into the groove with sales starting up for the winter months!  I am always super busy during the colder months.  I have a lot of new things that I have been trying to spread out and keep everyone interacting with my Facebook page as possible!  As a Mad Mad Maker one of the biggest things for me to keep up on is having my present year round.  With 3 kids it is really hard when all they want to do it play outside.  I have had to get creative this year so that I could keep crocheting while they played.    I have been debating with myself whether or not to enter into the local craft shows.  I found a website that allowed me to have the contact info for the 3 biggest ones around Northern Kentucky area.  I am scared to go ahead and enter myself into these craft shows one is because shoppers like instant gratification.  I don’t feel that I have enough merchandise ready to be shipped and out the door for 5000 + shoppers for that fair.  I think that I will be ready for sure next year.  But I have also been looking at the smaller craft shows that are not so local.  I am just so torn on what to do.  If all else fails there is always next year right?!

Anyways here is a few pictures of what I have been up to lately.  Enjoy!

So….Where to begin.  lol I have been quite busy the past few days and have been meaning to post things on here.  So what I am going to do is tell you about my busyness and then show you all kinds of new things!

Started out as a good week was getting things accomplished around the house laundry was going, dishes were being washed.  I then received a phone call from the school nurse informing me that I needed to come and get my son.  He had an accident and needed to go and get possibly a few stitches.  If you know my oldest, you know that this is totally out of the norm.  He has always been the one who doesn’t like to get dirty.  He is definitely not the risk taker.  He is afraid of heights and doesn’t like to rough house.  Took the babies next door to be watched so I could go and get #1 and take him to the doctor.  When I walked into the nurse’s office he was sitting there on the table and you could tell that he had been crying hard.  Thank goodness that the cut was not any worse than what it was.  It was really deep but very small.  Long story short.  We met the hubby at the urgent care close to where we live.  I tried not to tell #1 that he would have to have stitches because he hates being in pain.  He may be the oldest but he is the biggest baby out of all 3 of them. I wish that I would have video taped the procedure.  I could have submitted it to America’s Funniest Videos and possibly won!

Now onto some crafty stuff!  I recently posted on my Facebook page a question of what would everyone like to see next in the shop for crochet hooks.  I got many responses.  I chose one so far.  I plan on making more of the requests though in due time.  So here is what I have been working on lately.  Enjoy the show!

Clay covered crochet hooks!

I have recently fallen in love with clay!  I have even made some small charms for necklaces that I thought I would never do because of the tedious small detail work that goes into them.  But I fell in love with everything that I have tried lately that deals with clay!  Here is what I have been up…..   I don’t know what it is about it but I can’t get […]
