Dressed for Valentines

I've been making lots of Valentines stuff the last couple of weeks and so I thought I'd share these little dresses with you. I'm sending them to someone special for a Valentines gift. I have a "clothesline" that I'm sending along with them and some clips to hang the dresses up with.

All of the dresses have a heart on them except for the all pink dress. It's all pink though so it kinda says Valentines anyway.
It's so much fun to pick out the paper and then embellish the little dresses. I love my boys, but I could have been very happy with more little girls.....2 just wasn't enough for me. I guess that's what grandaughters are for, right?
Anyway, Have a great day and I hope you enjoyed seeing my little dresses and if you want to see the rest of my Valentines stuff there are pictures on my sidebar in my Etsy Shop.

More of What I Made

Here is a picture I borrowed from my sister Robyn. I had her family's name for Christmas and so I Made here a scarf and fingerless gloves in a really pretty rusty, turquoise and gray blend of the Lion Brand Tweed Stripes yarn. It is my favorite color of all of the tweeds. I also made some zebra striped pillows for my niece Ashley because Robyn and Ashley painted her walls in zebra stripe and it looks so cool! I had to make something to add to it. I also made some hotpads and then Emeril's Baby Bam and some chocolate covered pretzels. I really need to learn how to make things for guys though. Sorry Matthew and Darrin!! I had fun making everything up for Robyn's family....I just wish we lived closer so I could actually see them!!


Lately I have been having some really weird dreams.
Before Christmas I thought it was just the stress of the holidays and now
I'm not sure......
stress, hormones, medication, ?????
I really wish I new what some of my dreams meant though.

I have had several dreams about being in a house and finding "extra" rooms in the house. Like another kitchen and living room complete with furnisher and treasures (pictures, costume jewelry, letters, clothes, etc....) from the previous tennants. Sometimes there are extra bedrooms. There is always a door though that connects to a different part of the house that someone else lives in and it always scares me.

I also have lots of dreams about people that used to be in my life. Some of these dreams make me so angry and upset that I wake up crying and angry. Other dreams are quite pleasant and they are usually about people that I haven't seen for over 30 years.

I also seem to get a lot of crocheting, sewing and baking done in my sleep. I will wake and my hands will look like I'm crocheting. Last night I woke up and I was measuring a teaspoon of baking powder. My hands are cramped in the mornings sometimes when I've dreamed about sewing with needles the night before.

So.......who has a dream diagonisis for me?
What do these reoccuring dreams mean?
I've been having them for several months now and some of them I really don't mind to much, but some of them are annoying and others just scare me or make me wake up in a bad mood.
Anyone willing to take a deeper look into my mind?

Snugglely Scarves

I made scarves for my grandaughters and daughter in laws for Christmas and wanted to share some of them with you.
I used Lion Brand Tweed Stripes Acrlic yarn and the pattern off the wrapper.
I think they turned out really pretty and
I like the colors of the Lion Brand Tweed Stripes yarn.

I got so busy with Christmas that I never had a chance to finish sharing my beautiful matchboxes that I received in Linda's swap.

Box 19 is from Kelly and is has a jolly Santa on the box and a
beautiful green hair clip on the inside.
Box 20 is from Wendy and it has a pretty little Snowflake Faerie on it and a beautiful ornament on the inside with a fairy in it.

Box 21 is from Grace and it as postage stamp of Santa on it and a little game piece as the #. On the inside is a really pretty little acorn necklace.
Box 22 is from Nicole and it has a pretty paper flower on the front and then beautiful little embellishments plus a tiny little angel on the inside.

Thank you all so much for the beautiful matchboxes!
They are all so beautiful and unique
and I will treasure them always!

Here are the matchboxes that I made for days 19-22. There are snowflakes, a bag with "Candy Cane Seeds" in it, mittens and a wreath. I hope everyone liked the boxes that I made up!

Here is an afghan that I made for my daughter, her apartment is mainly black and white so I thoguht this would fit in nicely.

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
