The Dog Pound!

I love pictures of ornament groups. Here's a picture of my dogs on Etsy. They have a lot of personality, don't they. And don't ask me why one dog is named Cyril, I'm not sure where that came from.

I love working with embroidery floss on felt too. The bright colors are so pretty!

By the way, I had done a bunch of cat ornaments and bags...I didn't want the dogs to feel left out..I love them too!

My Large Gingerbread Man Purse

I just completed the larger version of my miniature gingerbread man purse. It is so, so adorable! I've never used felt to make a large purse before, and I love the way it feels and looks. It has a wintry and holiday look to it. The felt is thick and sturdy and it's easy to add bling when you're dealing with a neutral color like gray.

Look for more felt type bags from me!

I'm a Mouse Not a Rat!

Hi, I'm Aunt Vivvie, and I'm pleased to meet you.

Yes, this is a pretty dress isn't it? I love the ruffle and matching neck ribbon. I think I look good in this color, don't you?

Between you and me, I don't think most mice look good in this burgundy color, but I'm not most mice...I have a little bit of rat in me...don't tell anyone...I think it enhances my natural beauty...
If you tell anyone, I'll deny it!
Check out Aunt Viv on CarolJoyFashions shop on Etsy this week.

Gingerbread Boy Purse

Tommorrow, I am going to be in the Bags and Purses Showcase in Etsy so I thought I would think outside of the box. To the left is my first purse that I will show...This purse doubles as a doll purse or christmas ornament for your tree because the purse body is only 3" tall! What do you think? Were your fooled, did you think this was a big purse?

New Cone Gift Bags!

I just love these cone gift bags. They're as fun to make as they are to decorate with--a nice alternative to a Christmas stocking and of course I added bling around the top.

The black fluffy ring around the olive green flocked fabric is adorable--a nice touch. See this sapphire blueolive green flocked and green velour with beads  in Etsy in the next couple of days!
