Only 2 Days Left

I haven't blogged in forever!  I have been so busy with my shop and other things, I haven't had a chance.  I have completed an item at least once a week this year.  My goal for next year is to create something each day, weather it be a cookie or a shirt.  I will try to be better at blogging too.  It's just too many social networks out there and facebook is enough for me.  My son wants me to do twitter, but that is a bit much for me.  My shop is doing great! 

I also have a facebook fan page as well.  Feel free to become a fan!  Here is a link .!/pages/Roszberries/218028024884886  I will be doing some give aways next year too, it should be lots of fun! 

I am currently working on some peasant tops for a Valentines Day order.  I have one completed and the other almost done.  It will be done before the New Year though.

Well it's late and time for me to hit the sack, got lots to do tomorrow.

Hope you all have a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!!!

Spring Break!

Well it's spring break here in Cali, but it doesn't feel like it.  I am still running my heat!!!  Sunday was such a beautiful and sunny day.  The kids are out for  2 weeks at least the little ones are.  My high schooler goes back to school next week.  I let them have a break yesterday and today they are going to do some spring cleaning.  We have to get rid of the small and unwanted things that they no longer need or want.  My church is having a community outreach on Saturday and we are giving away clothes.  We are also giving away turkeys and hams so people can have something to cook for Easter dinner. I haven't decided what I'm going to cook yet.

I have been working really hard to sew down my stash, but it seems as though it's not going down.  I sewed a lot this year!!!!  Made a cute little Tinkerbell pants set too.  Praying that my etsy will pick up as well.

Got to bake a red velvet cake for Thursday.  Plan to make a bunny cake for Easter too.  Will have to post a pic of it when I'm done.  Well have a great and crafty week!

Happy Birthday Aziyah!!!!!

Wow, I can't believe you are 11 years old today!  It seems like just yesterday you were born.  I remember when you got your first play kitchen and you were running around the house telling everyone to see your kitchen.  You were cooking up a storm!  We had lots and lots to eat! 

Now you are 11 and cooking in the BIG kitchen with mommie.  Aziyah loves to bake, sew, craft, paint, etc.  She is following in my footsteps and we are so proud of her.  She is growing like a weed.......wish she would slow down though. 

We are planning a "Wizards of Waverly Place" birthday party.  It is going to be so much fun and I'm looking forward to it.  We plan to have subs, since on the show they own their own sub shop and we will have a sign hanging over the food that says "Waverly Sub-Station"!  I'm so excited!  Will have to share pics once the party is over. 

Until next time......happy crafting!

Happy February Everyone!

It has been a long time since I last blogged.  I have to do's almost Valentines Day!  My how time flies.  It seems like just yesterday was Christmas.  I haven't done much for Valentines Day.  My daughter and I did make her a M&M's vest to wear on Valentines Day.  She did the outside and I did the lining and top stitching.  She really enjoys sewing.  YEA!  Her class is having a tea party. HOW FUN!!!  I remember for her 8th birthday we had tea party and all the girls had a great time.  In fact her birthday is Thursday.  She will be 11!!!!!  She is growing too fast!  She is going to be tall too.  I will share a pic of the vest we made.

Made a cake last week for a client too.  She really loved the cake.  Her only request was a strawberry cake with pink frosting and flowers.  I did this cake the day they released me from the hospital too.  All this in one night.  WHEW!  It was a lot of fun though.  Her daughter was screaming as she opened the box.  Another satisfied client.

WOW! It has been a long time..........

Well hello everyone,  I had a great summer and I hope you all did too.  The kids went to spend 3 weeks with the grand-parents and can't wait to go back next year. 

It is October and it's "National Breast Cancer Awareness Month."  I have 2 friends that are affected by this disease.  One is doing very well and the other not so good.  My family and I are walking on the 16th of October in honor of all those that have been affected by Breast Cancer.  I will also try and wear pink when I can.

A lot has happened in my life since my last blog.  I started cake decoration school and it has been a blast!!  I love it.  I will show you my final cake at the end of my entry.  I had to make a 3 tier wedding cake.  It came out great, everyone love it.  The first tier was chocolate chip, second tier was red velvet, and the third tier was a pomegranate pound cake!  MMMMM 

I have acquired MORE fabric!!! (SMH) I have been sewing up a lot of it though.  I made a few things to put on my etsy.  My shop has been doing ok, I know it takes at least 3 years for any business to be successful.  I do a lot of business off etsy though, so that is good too.

I am making some bows right now to list as well. 

Well I will try to blog at least once a week, so you all enjoy the rest of the week and I shall see you next week.

Here is my final cake!!!

Here is an outfit I completed today.  It is a one of a kind Top.  It is a size 2T if anyone is interested.

So tell me what you think.

Hello There!

Well it has been a while since my last blog.  Been super busy.  My oldest runs track and he and his team mates made it to the Penn Relays.  They ran the 4x100 relay and they came in 3rd Place!!!  So proud of them.

I had an order for a tote bag and a DST pillow.  They came out great and needless to say to say she loved them both.  I also made a patrotic dress and bow for a friends grand-daughter and again she loved the set.  I am now working on restocking my etsy.  My daughter's seashell angels have been selling like crazy!  She is saving for something special, and at this rate she will have it soon.

I have put myself on a fabric diet.  I have TOO much fabric!  I would like to sew something everyday, but that can't happen if I'm on the computer, now can it?  I will try to write once a week to keep you up to date and show you what I've done that week.  I should be able to write frequently.

Well here are the things completed in the last few weeks.

Hello Blogland!

I have a pretty busy week ahead.  I have got to finish up some projects.  I have a few designs sketched out just need to finish coloring them and then bring them to life.  Tomorrow is St. Patricks Day....can you believe it?  It's the middle of March already! I am cooking cornbeef brisket, cabbage, potatoes, carrots and got to have some cornbread to go with it.  Aaron loves cornbread!!

Aziyah sold 3 more seashell angles today.  She is so excited!  She is saving up to buy an Ipod touch.  She has expensive taste for a 10 year old!  

The kids have 1 more week before they are out for spring break and they can't wait.  Kind of strange out here though, Jordan only gets 1 week for spring break (high school) and Aziyah and Aaron (elementary) gets 2 weeks.  Don't make any sense to me.

This is "National Craft Month" do a craft with your family.  I am on the hunt for a craft we can all do together as a family.  I will post it when we are done. 

Well I shall see you all in about a week.  Chow!
