I don't think anyone is even checking my blog anymore, but if you are I'M SORRY! I really intended to keep blogging! Without internet at home I've been lucky to even check my e-mail once a week! If I ever figure out how to make this work I'll be back! I loved being able to share the things I was making! If your curious I've been making and selling my wallets. I think I'm finishing number 25 today! I've also made some cute aprons for the girls. My Christmas gifts were mostly handmade too! Ahhhh....someday.... :)

My wonderful mother is celebrated her birthday yesterday. I made her a couple pretty quick simple things, but I think they turned out super cute. First was this little drying towel mat.

Maddy had to make a pumpkin out of something other than a pumpkin for school this week. I wasn't feeling overly creative, and we were short on time after a busy weekend so this is what we came up with. I think it turned out really cute. We did use a real stem. In case you think I did all the work let me assure you that she really did help. She sewed the circle on the bottom of the fabric and we filled it with plastic pellets. She also started sewing the yarn to gather the top, but I had to finish that part as she was too tired.

We have a wood burning boiler to heat our home for the winter so we've been spending our free time cutting and stacking firewood. Even though the kids are young we're trying to instill a good work ethic in them. They help stack the wood for a little bit and then they play hide-and-seek the rest of the time. We all enjoy this time especially because we've had perfect weather for it. We've also hiked up to Butler Rock recently. It has been a beautiful fall!

I just wanted to say I am alive and well! I have been crafting and will have some new posts this week. I'm working on a few "orders" now, but I made my little tool man a tool belt this week and I'm working on some new pillows for the couch. I'll get some pictures and post more about that this week. Now I'm off to a campfire with my adorable little son who is begging me to come outside with him! More coming soon, I promise!
