We sometimes loose the meaning of the holidays with all the commercialism and shiny wrapping paper. True gifts come from the heart not the wallet and this was a lesson for me to notice all the things in my life and be grateful for the big and the small.  By no means are these all the things I am thankful for, nor are they necessarily in the correct order. To all a Happy and Thankful Day!!!!

Thank You!!

Holiday Ideas from and Hot Patterns

Hot Patterns and have gotten together again with more free downloads. Some of you may have already seen these as a few have been out for a while. I can see all of these as great gifts for the coming holidays!!

Ok, I am so behind lately and I know the blog is suffering - so sorry everyone. I am working on getting a few tutorials together for easy holiday gifts and that has put the purple purse on the back burner for a while. But we can always use new toots - Right?!?!?

(if I could get rid of this "Read More" link - anyone know how???)

Count Down to Christmas

I know - no one wants to hear it but we need to start thinking about Christmas. It's not to far away, and it's just far enough to get lazy and wait. Last year I made cute small gifts for friends and coworkers. We all can understand that with money tight this year we can't just go out and buy everyone we know something, so a small hand made item is just the right solution.

The internet is a great place to find helpful tutorials from so many lovely people!!
