Time to Add Some Fall Items to both Etsy Stores

I was working on some projects today, I finished another painted plate for Halloween and I am adding a few products to the Etsy stores.  The picture below is a silly scarecrow and a black goofy crow, both dolls were designed by me and the letter B I kind of sound like Sesame Street for stating it that way but that's okay I love Sesame Street still my favorite has always been the Count.  Back to the dolls, the crow is made from black broad cloth and the scarecrow is muslin, both dolls are actually make with making a pattern out the letter B.  I will be adding these two also because the OFG is putting on an event call Fall to Thanksgiving and these sets of dolls will be in it and tonight I will be busy adding them to the store.
 The picture below is a cute small rag cloth doll that I designed on my own and I am thinking about making some more dolls.  This cute little doll has the body of a pumpkin which I made from some nice cotton Halloween fabric, the head, arms and legs are muslin filled with fiber fill.
I also have a few more projects going on I am working on the 20 inch doll still and another Halloween Painting done on a large chalkboard, it will make a very cute wall hanging for the up coming holiday.   Next week I should have the 20 inch doll completed and I will share that with you all, so be sure to peek in next week and see how she has come out.

Prayers and Hope for JoJo

I was really not going to blog about JoJo but today is when doctors will decide about operating on her and I decided to ask you all for prayers.  It has been 7 days since the accident.  My daughter accidentally spilled a 16oz cup of boiling soup onto JoJo.  She is very badly burned and the burns cover most of her little body, she is now at the Portland burn center.  This has been one of the toughest things to go through, I love her so much so I am asking you all to pray for her.  The stay at the hospital will be a long one up to 3 weeks.  I am so thankful to the LDS Missionaries for going and giving her a blessing.  It's so hard seeing someone so little in so much pain I want to take the pain away and put it on me, she is like a little mummy with all the bandages, she is now 3 months old and I am worried about the operation, but I need to stay truly believing she will be just fine.
I know it all will be alright I have to faith in my heavenly father and I do.

Marmalade Rasin Biscuit Rolls

One day I was playing around in my kitchen wondering what I could make up for a quick breakfast.  I had some Bisquick mix and there was a recipe for biscuits on it so started to make up the mix thinking I was going to have biscuits and gravy.  But I saw I have some marmalade, brown sugar and raisins.  So I decided to mix up the raisins, a cup of brown sugar and marmalade in a sauce pan and heated it until the sugar and marmalade got bubbly.  I also decided to add one cup of sugar to my dough mixture and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon.  I greased my muffin pan well and added the marmalade mixture first then the dough mixture on top and baked it all in the oven at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes and this is what I got!  They were quite yum with a hot cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk and they lasted about 1 whole day!  I was fun just creating something yummy while using just a little of this and a little of that.
