Boy! Have I been busy....

Hey everyone, I didn't realize I have been gone for almost 2 weeks. Time really flies when your having fun. Well some of it was fun. Let me give you a little run down of what I have been up too. Last time I posted I was working on my tissue box dolls. Well I still have one to finish. I did find good homes for 2 of them. I gave them as gifts.
 I made her a sweet bouquet of flowers to hold.
I made the flowers from muslin. The yellow and blue flowers I tinted using decorating chalk and the orange one, I just dyed some muslin orange and garnished it with a purple glass bead.  Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of the other one. I cant believe I forgot to get a  pic.Well actually yes I can....lol

Well in the process of sewing the dolls bonnets, I accidentally  sewed my finger instead. Yes, I said my finger.
 It really wasn't that bad. Surprisingly it didn't really hurt until hubby started to clean it up for me. Unfortunately I broke the needle in my sewing machine and I didn't have any extra. So my sweet hubby actually went to Joann's for me and bought me some new sewing needles.  Wasn't that so sweet of him? After about 2 hours I was back to sewing.

I have also been working on making some pantry cakes out of wax.

 Here I have some of them looking all pretty and primitive. I just love how they turned out and most of all how they smell.
Grunged up pineapples
more pantry cakes

and even more

choc bunny

choc eggs
I also made these cute chocolate looking bunnies and eggs out of wax that smells just like the real thing. They almost smell good enough to eat.

I have also been working one a new selling blog "Jager Hollow Primitives". Hopefully I'll have it up and running soon. Wish me luck....lol

Ouch, that hurts. Wow, you have been busy! I can't believe you tint the muslin with chalk, what a neat concept!! They look great. I love the purple glass bead in the orange flower, such neat detail.

Yes, your pantry cakes are pretty and prim. Love the huge pineapples! The chocolate bunny and eggs have got to be real chocolate, I can't believe that is wax. Just looking at them is making me crave chocolate, lol.

Best wishes on your selling blog~
