mine & yours

mine & yours, originally uploaded by hobocampcrafts.

I've had this design in my mind for quite some time. I finally got some time to make it! These are in the shop now, along with a few other goodies.

Been under the weather- now the whole family is. Dang sinus infection! We're hanging in there as we re-coop. Bella our pup, goes to the vet tomorrow. The house inside is feeling like Christmas. Lights up in some places, the mantle is all decorated. Trying to work on a new attitude. Some new parenting ideas, more patience. More patience- leading with my heart and not my ego. All and any advice on the subject is welcome!

{this moment}

this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see. From Soulemama's blog. This is our picture:

Question of The Day

How do YOU get work done with a toddler in the house? Whether you sew, make soap, metalsmith or make your own wine- How on EARTH do you get this done while caring for a toddler? As you can see- I'm a desperate mama, but I think other crafty peeps with kids might also like to know!

New New

My parents are coming up for a visit today. They haven't been here in over a month. We usually see each other every week- but last week we missed a get together. So, today they'll come up and maybe we'll grab a bite and share treasures I've recently acquired or they have brought up for us. They love spending time with Hazel, which is nice. They'll get an extra dose of her this weekend, when Zach and I go to see Harry Potter and they babysit! Can't wait- I so love Harry Potter- but the near end of the movies and books is so sad!

In other news, my brother came up to help install new cabinets.

And a week ago yesterday, we adopted a little 6 month old pup, we are calling Bella.

We were told she is a Hound/ German Shepard mix... either way she may be about 70 pounds! whoa!
New things popping up in the shop!

New Faerie Hat in the Shoppe~

Last night I finished this magical little cap and listed it in my shoppe! It was so much fun trying to imagine what a butterfly faerie's hat might look like.
Yesterday, my brother came up to help Zach rip down the old cabinets and put up some new ones! Yay! While I am still getting use to it- I am enjoying the new space and picturing what the space will turn into. A quick trip to the Goodwill with the family. Zach found a great pair of Clark shoes, I found a Gary Null book and a pair of chocolate brown cords and a burgundy sweater for felting.

Well, I think Zach fell asleep in the rocking chair while putting Hazel down. I want to try and get some more hats finished to put up on Etsy.

I heard some Christmas music in a store today- it made me smile. The most fun time of year! xo

Hazel's Second Halloween

With a free dress- handed down from a yard sale. We made a TinkerBelle- Faerie of sorts. I added some trim and felt to freshen up the dress. Grandma found the wings and wand for $1.oo at the Dollar store!

Even Papa dressed up:

Note: I should add the pumpkins were our neighbors, not ours!
