Butterfly Sign & Rag Banner Set

This one is for my niece, and it’s the first rag banner I have ever made. First, they are SO much work.  Second, they are SO much cuteness!  I am really proud of how well this set turned out and I think I will definitely be listing them on Etsy shop today as a custom order.  I will have to think up a couple different themes for the sign, and some boy themes too. This sign is 12″x 12″ and …

September Already!?!

Wow.  September came in like a flash.  It seems like we just rang in the new year! It’s just about time to get to the “fall things” like cleaning up the yard, garden, and flower beds.  Preparing for winter.  Doing the autumn cleaning and preparing for the house to be closed up for months on end.  Wash the curtains and air everything out.  Wash away  the summer allergens.
