    I hit the fabric sales after Thanksgiving and am planning more chicken related stuff.

    I am also going to try rubber duckies set in melt and pour soap that I got on sale. I will just need to be careful how hot I heat it in the micro so I don't melt the duckies. Hehe, what an image. Melt and pour is fun to play with.

    I took new pics of my Etsy potholders with my new camera and I know I will have fun doing that.
    I found a bunch of really old greeting cards in the origianl box that I will see if I can do something with.

    I hope to knit more, probably felted stuff. And I'd like to sew more stuff for the house. I want new curtains in the living room and kitchen.

    I have 2 new soaps coming out, Pine Tar Soap and Tea Tree Oil Soap. I'll send out fliers to folks on my mailing list when they're available.

    My goal is to finish the sweater I started knitting a couple weeks ago (first real knitting project besides scarves). We are also going to start making and selling aromatherapy candles.

    I'm planning to introduce reproductions of homes or buildings in clay. Working on my own home as a sample.
    Here's a (not a reproduction) barn I did a couple of years ago:

    DW wants a leather jacket dyed aqua/turquoise;I'll complete the ensemble with cowgirl boots belt and hat. Also have a matching purse with a concealed holster for her Lady Smith .40 semi-auto. I certainly pity the jerk that tries to mug her!

    I have 9 full hides of cow leather from year-end clearance discounts. I'm giving my leather work another go. See if I get any takers on that etsy web that y'all talk so much about. If it doesn't work out...the family ends up some nice gifts around the holidays...yet again.

    Wow, do you all live where there is that much crime? Why do you want to carry a concealed weapon? Just wondering......I guess it never occured to me. We go into New York City and Boston a lot and maybe I"m oblivious (probably am!) but I've always felt safe.
