More new goodies from Wanda June!

Wanda just came by to swap out the summer stock for some new fall hats and dresses and as usual, they are fantastic! Come check them out!

What's new at Sew Dandee!

Melanie of Papertrail Craft Co. brought in a bunch more of her beautiful all occasion cards today!

And I've been busy in the card making factory, too! I'm all over using vintage house wife images lately. Here's what I've come up with so far.

Just to clarify, I do NOT support husband abuse.

These cards come from the fact that I'm getting on in years and want to remind people that we can't stay pretty forever but we can stay lovable!

And I've got a couple new switch plates to show you too! Just in time for Halloween, I've got our favourite sexy blood suckers and our favourite serial killer.

I recently acquired some fantastic vintage postcards from my Mom-in-law and they've inspired a new line of cards. I get great pleasure from seeing an innocent photograph of a loving couple and bringing out the rude, naughty thoughts that I imagine them REALLY thinking! Sick, I know but that's who I am. When it comes to making my cards, anyway.

F.Y.I. If you click on the picture you'll see it larger so you can read the text a bit easier.

That's just the beginning! Much more to come. And I've already started making my Christmas cards but I'm holding off until after Thanksgiving before I switch over to full on Christmas mode. It's twenty five frickin' degrees outside! Christmas should be the LAST thing on our minds right now!

My latest project: Crocheted Ear Muffs!

So, I've been experimenting with making some cool ear muffs for the chilly season that's fast approaching and here's what I've come up with so far!

I've been wearing my first pair under my bike helmet on my way to work in the morning and they're awesome for keeping the howling wind noise and cold out of my ears.

Keep in mind I can make you a custom pair too. I plan on making some with more appliques and button embelishments. And I hope to work on a pair of hamburger ear muffs at Where the Wool Things Are's knit night this Thursday! If you're a knitter or crocheter like me, come down to this great shop for good crafts, snacks and great conversation on Thursday nights from 5pm to 9pm in The Exchange.
