Olive, The Other Reindeer

It's official! Not because of the poll but because when I woke up the day after posting the poll the entire family was calling her Olive. They had decided she needed a name and I don't blame them. I'm so indecisive when it comes to names. I love playing the name game...
So it's OLIVE! She's still super sweet but the puppy chewing thing is driving me a little crazy. She hasn't destroyed anything YET, it's just our hands and toes that she's after right now. OUCH! Puppy teeth hurt!
Oh and she's not an Ewok for those of you who were wondering. She's a Schnauzer. This family is an allergy attack waiting to happen and Schnauzers are just about the only kind we can handle. She's very different looking for a Schnauzer...she has a chocolate brown nose and lots of brown coloring. Even our vet said he had never seen one like her.

I plan to slowly get back to work over the next week or so. I have tons of picture posts to catch up on so I can show you what was going on here in December. Beware if you are not into the picture posts!! I'll let you know when I am officially back to business!

I know it's Christmas and after the long blogging break I should be posting about all the cute things my kids have done and showing you great pics of them BUT this sweet little puppy still needs a name and we just can't settle on one. Help us in that pole over there to the right. She's just so sweet and so cute...we're in love already...but she can't be "puppy" forever!

Christmas Came Early at Our House!!

I know it's been forever since I've had the time to sit down and blog but isn't this little baby a great reason for a post???

She's our little family Christmas gift and she's as sweet as can be. Poor baby girl doesn't have a name yet. We just can't decide. Maybe Olive (as in Olive the other reindeer) or maybe Fergie or maybe Hazel or maybe Miley Cyrus (Nora's suggestion) or maybe Violet...just can't decide and the list goes on and on. Hopefully she'll have a name by Christmas. Would LOVE to hear suggestions!!!
Hope this finds you Merry Merry and in the Christmas spirit! I LOVE IT!! I'm off to wrap presents while I think of puppy names.

Officially "CLOSED" for the Holidays

I'm so sorry that I had to stop taking orders so soon but in order to fill all the ones I already have in time for the Christmas shows that I have committed to, it is definitely necessary. Please be patient with me as I try to respond to all the email orders that I have received over the past several days. I'll be working as quickly as I can to get back to you but it may take a while to get caught up. I can assure you that you will have your pretty paper in time for gift giving or card sending. Thank you so much for getting all those orders in today!!! The last of the onesies...I will be discontinuing this item in cute...but such a pain to make...sorry!

You didn't think I really meant I was going to stay away for two weeks, did you?

Just because I won't be taking orders after tomorrow doesn't mean I won't be blogging. Due to the fact that it is 1 am and I have to be at school bright and early tomorrow for a fabulous Thanksgiving production, I will not be posting a lot of detail though. If you see something you would like and don't know the design name just refer to this post date. Night Night~!

Smencil Update

I've been getting tons of orders for Smencils and I wanted to let you know that the regular lead Smencils are on BACKORDER until December 5th at least. I will have Holiday Smencils which are regular lead and Colored Smencils available in a few days. If you have placed an order for regular Smencils I will contact you to see if you want to wait until mid December. I can't believe this Smencil-mania!

Last Call for Christmas Orders!

Unfreakinbelievable! My email has gone wild today! I'm feeling so blessed and stressed. Therefore, I'm saying "LAST CALL!" I will not be able to take any more orders after 5 pm Oklahoma time tomorrow. This will give me two weeks to fill orders before heading off to the Metro Holiday Bazaar and the American Girl Fashion Shows. The Metro Bazaar is open to the public this year so let me know if you would like details.
Please accept my apologies for being a little slow to get back to you regarding your orders. I will be in touch soon if you placed an order within the last few days.
Thank you so much for blessing me with your business! I am so grateful! I'll see you in about two weeks!

WARNING! Get your orders in NOW...Please.

I did not anticipate that the orders would start flooding in this week. I planned on accepting orders through the end of the month but it doesn't look like I will be able to do so. At this point I am getting close to saying "Last Call!" I am going to be doing a show at Metro on December 3rd and I will have a booth at the Junior League American Girl Shows December 5 - 7 (come see me) and I would really like to go into those without a huge load of orders. So...if you know you want to place an order please do it SOON...I may be shutting her down sooner than I thought I would have to.
I am so thankful to have this problem. Watching the emails flood in is much better than staring and waiting and wishing I would get an order.
I'm off to have another Diet D.P....I need my caffeine to get me through this!

Mommy, Can you put the leaves back??

This Old House came with some big old trees. That means LOTS of leaves to rake!!! LOTS! This picture was taken while standing at my back door looking straight down. You can't even see the porch under there and it goes on and on and on. Just the other day we raked up 8 bags and you couldn't even tell!! Charlie asked me if I could please just put them back on the trees. Isn't that cute?? Later he decided they were fun to play in so he'd like to keep them now.
