Tickled to Death


Have you ever made something and decided it was so darn cute you had to make another?


And then another?


I tell you I tickle my own self sometimes when the characters I create turn out so unexpectedly sweet.


I absolutely love these little leafy elves with their banners announcing the coming of their own special days of the year.
.

Any excuse for a celebration in this beloved craft room is fine by this Creative Breather.



Tickled to Death , I tell you!

Some one is helping you this is a good thing E. I will look forward to more on that. Thanks for always encouraging us to make your darling little felt characters with posting the patterns. I agree on the special orders you are not a machine but do all the work with your dear hands which can give out on you if you overdo. Take Care E we love you.

Miss E!
I'm jumping up and down! I don't know how that blog or craftroom could get any cuter but I can't wait to see it. I bought a table and hung new curtains in my craftroom then spent all afternoon and evening there yesterday thinking...what would Elizabeth do with this?

Oh E,
I am so happy to hear you have some helping you to make your blog even more magical! I found two special somebodies and I was so blessed And an Etsy shop!!!!! Oh Boy ! I see the little red guy.....EEKK!!!!!! I think the Etsy shop is perfect for two reason...one...INCOME! Two, if you want to have it empty or fulll that is totally OK....it is your shop! Sometimes for months mine has nothing, but I know it is there is I want to try to sell anything....Just pace yourself...and I have my fingers crossed about the other subject! :):) Sandy

Glad you have someone to help you, Elizabeth. I guess that's what I would need. I tried setting up a shop and I tried using paypal and couldn't figure out either. It made me feel so stupid that I gave up. Yeah, I like things to be easy. :) there's enough hard things in life already! ♥

Elizabeth, I knew your Flickr badge didn't go to Flickr. How exciting for you and for all of us. Can't wait to see and oh the Etsy shoppe... And....my mail lady delivered a heart today, a day for me that needed a touch of kindness, I am simply enchanted, the stitches so fine and delicate. I am inspired anew with a piece of your talented handwork I can see and hold. My heart is touched by your heart. Thank you.

Your little 'fall guys' are as cute as can be, as usual...

I think you are very wise to open an Etsy shop.

Good luck on your new venture!

Dear Elizabeth,
I'll never forget searching and searching for an Etsy shop on your side bars when I first came over. I'm thrilled to hear you will opening one soon. You will just love it! You can be your own Boss and can put your Shop on "vacation mode" whenever you need to.
I scrolled down to see the lovely wedding pics of your TSG and her Joe on the beach. I can only imagine the joy you feel having both of your children happily married now. So much has happened over the last few years.
Please forgive me for not being the blogger I used to be. You'll always hold a dear place in my heart, just because you're you.
Much love,
Mary Lou

I am so pleased to hear you are going to have an Etsy shop! I have been drooling over your adorable characters for a few months now trying to work up the courage to make one...now I won't have to. I can't wait to buy one from the artist herself! I only hope I can beat the hoards that will be sure to want one too. Best of luck in your new adventure.

Mine has been bare since March. I haven't found the crafting time that I need.
Best Wishes <3
