I'm really not a seamstress. That's not one of my strong suits. (And as you can see I'm not a photographer either!) However, every once in awhile, I get the urge to sit down and sew. Because I know where my weaknesses lie, I usually choose projects that are not too complicated. Straight lines and a little bit of pressing, I can do that. This was one of my latest projects—a valance for my family room doors.

The first time I was involved in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life I made my Gourmet Dog Treats. Our team took them to our neighborhood dog park and sold them as a fundraiser. Even people who told me their dogs were finicky and never ate treats came back around for more because their dog(s) loved them. Even the finickiest dog will gobble these up!
Meet my best taste-testers.

Meet my model. She was a set of two sister dolls, however, someone came into Amanda Callahan's Doll Shop and stole her twin right off the shelf! So, my boss bought her for me as a play/dress up doll. Thanks again, Leigh! :)

I found this cute monkey pattern on the internet. When the daughter of a good friend of mine was expecting her first child I made one for her baby shower basket. You can do so much with these monkeys. Little touches give them so much personality. I added a little ruffled skirt and put a bow on her head to turn this one into a girl. The first one I made, I added a tie around his neck.
