Friendship Feast

Last week at school the kids enjoyed their annual Friendship Feast. It is held the day before Thanksgiving and the teachers prepare special dishes with each class. On the day of the feast, the kids have a special lunch in the Commons where parents serve bite-sized portions of all the Thanksgiving dishes to the kids.

Thanksgiving Day

My family had a very nice Thanksgiving and hope yours did too! My Aunt Linda was visiting from Colorado and we always enjoy seeing her, even if it's only once or twice a year. The kids really bonded with her and I think they wore each other out with the games they were playing. :-)

My parents also kept the kids at their house for two nights. It was great having a little break this weekend, and I know the kids had a blast!

Mom-Made Sales

It's time for another Mom-Made sewing update! Several infinity scarves sold when I ran my flash sale last week, and reduced my inventory quite a bit. I also just finished up a big Christmas order for The Gingerbread House, but some of those pictures are still on my camera and will be posted very soon.

Reminder: There are only FOUR days left to get those custom orders in for Christmas completion!

Old + New Sewing Orders

Hi there friends! I have several sewing orders to post here to get all caught up. Some of these are pretty old and were taken in not-so-great lighting and such. Oh well!

I have ended my year-and-a-half partnership with girl Friday selling my sewing items, and have all existing inventory back at my house. I've been going through everything and am trying to get my pictures and recorded sales up to date.

Christmas orders are coming in, and I am getting very busy. And wouldn't you know it, my sewing machine is acting up! I have to take it in for a professional cleaning in a week and cross my fingers that it doesn't need anything else! In the meantime, I do have a backup machine, but it isn't very user-friendly. :-)

Anyway, here is what has sold. Warning: picture overload ahead.

Fall Sewing Orders

Welcome! It's time for a Mom-Made sewing update. I feel like I haven't been sewing as much recently, and don't have as much time as I used to have for sewing (except on weekends). But Christmas orders are starting to come in, so I will have to make time to fit everything in!

The Cat and His Monkey Friends

Well, our outdoor cat Biscuit has turned into an indoor-outdoor cat. You're not surprised, are you??

He has a litter box in the garage and likes to hang out there sometimes. He also darts in the house every chance he gets, which is a lot, considering how many times we come and go throughout the day. He still uses his food dishes and cat house on the side porch when he's outside, as he does need his daily "prowling" time.

Kids' Halloween Costumes

Well, a very eventful Halloween has come and went! As I mentioned in a previous post, we celebrated Halloween in several different fun ways leading up to October 31st. It was great giving the kids so many opportunities to wear their costumes. Although at times I was thinking, seriously, I have to wash those green and black clothes AGAIN?!
