Isn't this pic toooo cute LOL. Well its a little cooler here in Sc but not much instead of 100 feeling like 115 . Its 91 feeling like 101. Has been raining I will takes some pics of the beautiful trees that surrounds me here in Gaston I love it so green. A few things IM going to write today about my Granddaughter first day at school and feature a pattern booklet I have on sell at my eBay store and other things on my mind. So thanks for coming and please sign my guestbook. This Blogging stuff is not as easy as I thought so bare with me I will get better with time LOL.

Today I like to talk about the pattern IM going to talk about today first off here is pictures. Sun Moon and Stars is a Cross Stitch book I sale at eBay and other auctions.Its by Linda Gillum it has 17 pages and sells for 6.00 but I sell it at eBay for 2.49 plus 2.00 shipping and it is brand new. Very cute projects it has for babies and children as well as for adults. I like the cow jump over the moon. If you have any questions email me at .

Here is a booklet that IM wishing for its a Japanese Amigurumi Volume 4 . I haven't made any of these yet but I would like to start at making the monkey in this book. These books are going crazy here in the States. Ebay sellers are taking advantage by selling this books outrageous prices.

On August 8th my granddaughter Katelynn went to her first day of kindergarten it was soo fun day for her when she got home she could not stop talking about all the things she was doing and her back pack was full of stuff to do at home.

Craftypiggies Goodies

Welcome to my first blog.

Hi there IM a retired Librarian and I sell books for a living..Not much living LOL. But its fun. I sell at ebay, Yahoo, Bidville, Loudfrog, Hibidder, Bid Usa...And my Ebook Site yep lots of fun. Below the link section I show a few of the books I sell in the kaleidoscope.

I stay at home due to illness and take care of three grandchildren (post pics). So each day I try to stay busy and not go crazy LOL. We are talking about 3 small children. I hope you come back and check in sometimes I will have new stuff.

Does it resemble hello kitty I hope so?

I made this for my Granddaughter Katelynn she is 5 years old. She starts school this year and IM so happy for her because we live in the country and she has few friends and wants to learn so much about life. I have introduce her to the library and she loves to read so IM hoping she will love school. IM working a black stripe handbag I will post when I finish.
