BlueBird of Happiness!!

 


 
  This is my OOAK hand sewn and designed by me BLUEBIRD.
 
 Her Funky necklace is a book mark.
 Her Market bagg turned out so cool.
 
And her dress is just like the color of the breast of the real Blue Birds. We have them here in the Spring and Summer. I get so excited when they show up. I have named this one ROSIE after my Mom. We had a special bond of bluebirds.
I have decided to take special orders on my Blue Birds. The dress material may differ as I got this one thrifting. This one is mine. If interested just let me know.
 
And isn't it so cool when your grown kids get you!! And give you the sweetest gifts!! This is from Ryan and Christine. Ryan is in Africa til March and this is perfect. Sim and I both LOVE coffee and take trips in the car a lot with it. They say Proud Navy Dad and Mom!! This gave me tears when I opened it!! 

 
AND this very cool rusty Coffee Can came from Nick n Danielle, Madeline's mommy n daddy. They know me so well that when they found this very old coffee can workin on their house they saved it for me for Christmas and put the flowers in it for me!! I love it!!
 

 
And the very cool deer with the flowers are from Sim.
 
I have been takin down the Christmas, but will leave these cool deer out for the winter. We finally got some snow last night and today. We'll see how long it lasts cuz now it's suppose to rain. Prayin it doesn't freeze.
 
Keep on Keepin on!!
XOXO Love Fran.

Feelin JaZZy in 2015!!

 
So I have been tryin to think what should be my new word for 2015. ha ha all I could come up with is JAZZY!! I love this word and so I looked up the meaning.  The first two words to describe it was Hip n Funky!! Well for sure that is gonna  be my word!! LOL
And most days I feel kinda Funky n Jazzy!!
 
 
I was so excited to get this one cup Coffee Maker from Sim for Christmas!! I wanted one so bad and didn't think I would get it!! BUT he did get me one!!! and he gave it to me early. Just like the two Goat shirts he got me and gave me back in September!! LOL He can not wait to give things to me!! But I just love that I can whip me up a cup of coffee like bam!! 
 
 
 
 
Hey kidds it's kinda like we are getting a do-over!! So let's make it the best ever and move forward!! I want to create as much as I can cuz it makes me feel better about myself kinda like I can be productive even though I can't work. And when I need to rest I am still doing something. I want to be a better friend, be more considerate, pay it forward like crazy and be a better blogger. And THANK GOD for all HE has given and done for me and for all HE is gonna do for me!! I also pray my little Handmade Business grows as I use the talents He has given me. And that I use it for His glory.
 
Happy New Year and
Keep on Keepin On!!
Peace Out!
XOXO Love Fran.

Hey there Chicas!!

 
 Hola from Madeline Grace!! She has her Papa Sim's Navy hat on so we could send a pic down to her Uncle Ryan who is Africa with the Navel Reserves with just 2 months more to finish his year assignment!!
 
 
And this is Caylee Roxanne, Ryan's baby girl my other grannie girl!! She and Mommy came up for Christmas with us!! They live about an hour away and it was so awesome they came up for Christmas Day. We picked out 4 different menus and let Caylee pick one out. She picked out Tacos!! So we had a Taco Bar and I made White Chicken Chili and lot's of other goodies!! It was so much fun!!
 
 
 It was so cool both girls had on Christmas dresses that matched only one was green and the other red. They didn't know it!! lol
 
 
AND my baby girl Kaitlin was here from Connecticut!! It truly was an awesome family Christmas!!
 
 
  This is Madeline's great big bear her Daddy got her for her first Christmas. Kaitlin really liked the Bear too!! lol In the background is the cool barn wood Bird house Sim made for Nick n Danielle. It is like our church we attend uptown. We had a homemade Christmas this year and I think it was one of the best. I sure enjoyed havin everyone here. AND some how the great big bear seems to be hangin out here!! hmm...
 
 
Just before Christmas we went to a benefit dinner for a local gal with heart problems and a lot of medical bills. I bought a couple of tickets to try and win a shellac for my nails. AND by golly I won! I couldn't get in before Christmas so I had them done today!! I felt so cool and pampered!! Wish I could afford to keep it up!! But at least I'll have them for a few weeks. I am gonna try to do it myself more often. I sure feel jazzy!!
 
 
 These cool brooches I made are uptown in a new lil shoppe that is trying to make a go of it. It's called THE HOPE CHEST. She's just opening up and wanted some of my things.
 I am so geeked I have three orders right now, one for a daschund dog, two mice, and a Mrs Farmer Crow doll for three different people!! Woo Hoo what an awesome way to start the New Year out with!! It is my goal in the New Year to do better in my Etsy shoppe, and on my blog!! And to design and create a lot more. I feel like I am moving in that direction already!! God is good. I have been praying a lot!!
Kaitlin is leaving tomorrow to go back to Connecticut. She's at her Dad's house tonight as it is an early flight and I don't do early very well. lol I miss her already. We went to Applebee's today and just hung out and last night we caught up on our Pretty Little Liars shows. New ones start next week!! I just feel so blessed.
 
Keep on Keepin on!!
XOXO
Love ya Fran.

Well my Goodness Dec. is just a flyin by!!



These two little beauties are ready for shipping and for gift giving. Available in my etsy shoppe!! I just love the look of these FOX BROOCHES!!
WOW the time has been flyin by on me!! I have been workin real hard on a craft show at my church. ALOT of work. I got it all done packed up on last Sunday from it and then had my surgery on Monday. I had to put myself on sick leave. LOL This chick was exhausted!! I am havin pain but a good excuse to sew. I felt really good about the craft show. Mainly I sold from my Hot Cocoa Bar. I had a lot of fun with that!! Almost sold all out!!
 

I have been spending a lot of time with my sweet lil baby girl Madeline Grace!! Oh my goodness this Grannie is in love!! She is 5 months now!!
 

 
I am gonna re do this lil beauty for Madeline Grace. Making it more child proof and removing the buttons and faux fur. She loves it. Then I got a a-ha moment. Remember a few posts back when I showed all of my vintage coats I had gotten? Well I am gonna make up some more dogs making them child proof with that vintage cool vibe!! I will make other things too but they will match my cool livingroom.

This is all vintage and found items. I LOVE LOVE how this turned out!! SO sweet available in my etsy shoppe. And ready to ship.  

A week from today my baby girl Kaitlin will be flyin in from Connecticut!! I CAN NOT WAIT!! She's gonna be home for 9 days I sure wish it was longer!! But at least she'll be here for Christmas!!
