Monday,'s just that day

Ah...the refrain from the old Mama's and Papa's song...if you're old enough to remember that classic melody! We need a weekend to recover from our uber-busy weekend.

*watched 2 important football games on TV - KState Wildcats WON!!
*watched 1 basketball game on TV (attempt to see local high school BB game was unsuccessful - sold out!)
*attended winter outdoor decor workshop (I'm enjoying my new wintry porch pot, pic below)
*toured 3 historic homes, all decked out for Christmas
*wrapped my first Christmas presents
*went to church, Sunday school, dinner with friends afterwards

AND...made almost a thousand of the new Faith Inspiration Boxer kits! We toted pre-assembled kit materials to the house and set up a couple temp tables in the family room, so we could watch TV while we worked. We kitted through ballgames, our favorite shows and even a episode of the Tudors from Netflix. Is anyone else watching this series? I feel a little smarter just for watching this historic account of the life of Henry VIII!

Now the finished kits are in our office and we're packing orders for shops all over the US and around the world. We do about 10% of our biz outside the US...who knew? We'll ship everyone on the same day - Wed. - but there's a lot of work between now and then.

Below is a SNEAK PEEK of the new B36 Faith Inspiration Boxer. Now that you can see the bottom of the verse, can you guess the top part?

Each Inspiration Boxer comes with a BONUS design inside. Here is a pic of the sweet little bonus design for the Faith kit. It echoes the colors I used in the main kit project - they are yummy! The kit includes the patterns and embellishments for both projects, including heart charm and beads on photo above. was nice to sit and do this post...but it's back to work at the shipping table! 


  1. Wow!... it has been a busy time for you! Your winter pot is just gorgeous! You've inspired me to get busy on mine :^) Can't wait to see the whole boxer kit...

  2. Can't trust that day? sometimes it just turns out that way? I am actually not quite old enough to remember the record's release though I did have a cassette of it that I wore out. :)

  3. Oh, so pretty! I love that saying! This is going on my wish list for sure!

  4. I love your "sneak peeks", and Oh I want them!
    BTW it is nice to know I am not the only one fond of handling raw turkey. Ever since I was pregnant with my middle son, I just feel a bit queasy looking at an uncooked turkey! My sister is kind enough to feed us all at Thanksgiving! Thank you for some many charts and inspiration over the years!
