Three posts this week!

Three posts in one week! Wow! Now, don't get too used to it.
Today's post is about the things I made at a 60 hour Save The Ta-Ta's Crop at my LSS (local scrapbook store). I worked the 9pm-9am shifts Friday and Saturday nights. The first night this is what I what I got done:
My first thing for myself, an apron (yeah, I'm rocking an apron and arthritis gloves)
I made this using a pattern I picked up over the summer. As with most patterns I try for the first time, I followed the directions and all the while I was making mental notes (and verbal ones too) that this pattern was over complicating itself and I'm going to revamp it.

The second night was still productive, but in a different way. I labeled/priced/merchandised my doll clothes for consignment at the store:
My sign now hangs above it (and hopefully the rack is a little emptier)

Once that was done, I worked on a layout of my step-son. His grandmother had posted these pictures on Facebook a month or so after it happened, and I debated scrapbooking it since it was pictures of an open wound, but since it's now his "Harry Potter Scar", I did it anyways, and the close up pictures are tucked away in the green pockets and have big bandage pulls tabs with "Warning: Close up!"
"My Harry Potter Scar" - "November 2009 - Christian had to get stitches after getting hit by a rock when he surprised his cousin."

As of the moment, my sewing desk is cleared off in it's newest spot in the dining room, and I'm ready to get to sewing. No fabric tonight since I'm working on a scrapbook layout for work. 

Off to the sewing/scrapbooking desk....
Until next time...

It's beginning to look a lot like a logo...

As technically gifted as my sweet husband is, he is not gifted with artsy creativity. Therefore, after several attempts of making a me a logo for my Gomunk Creations, he seeked the assistance of a logo company. Here's the first 6 ideas they came back with.

So, what do you think? Which is your favorite? Which things do you like? Any suggestions?
They'll be a round two soon.
Until next time.......

New, at a store near you

If you are in the Charleston, SC area, make sure to stop by Charleston Scrapbooking. As of yesterday, my doll clothes are available for sale there as well as the other places I sell online (my website, Facebook, Etsy, AG Fans, and AG Playthings). So, stop on by to see The Mom and check out my inventory. Now that my inventory box at home is empty, and my sewing/dining room is rearranged (yet again), I hope to get back into my sewing groove soon.
Here's the display so far, it's just waiting on me to put a sign on it too. I'm thinking of using the one I used at National Scrapbooking Day Weekend.

I'm excited!

And we have a winner!

Yes, I know it's a couple of days late, but we've selected a winner. To make up for being late, we're selecting two winners. One from the blog and one from our Facebook fan page.
Blog winner: Laura (Sophie Amelie)
Facebook Winner: Patricia P.

Now, the outfits are not complete yet, and as it nears Halloween I've got a special order I need to finish first, but I can give you a sneak peek of the outfits since they are already cut out.

Yep, straight from the cutting board. The outfit on the left is a print dress, solid jacket, reversible hat, and solid bag with print accent. The outfit on the right is a solid dress, print jacket, reversible hat, and print bag with solid accent.

Congrats to the winners! For those who didn't win, have no worries, I am planning another giveaway for Spring.

Until next time...
