SOS.....


I never really knew what that means but I think it's a call for help! SOS...Help... my crafts have taken over my house. This is what you see if you come to the back door. Be careful.... they are wet!

Dont think about getting a after school snack out of the fridge.... they are still wet!

Use the bathroom sink please.... cant you kids see that they are still wet!

What's for dinner you ask?....ask Dad! They are on top of the stove and I cant move them cause they are still wet!

Nope... cant use any pots for Mac n cheese.

Ahhhh... these are almost done. Just waiting for their ribbons...

"doorbell rings".... tell em' to go to the backdoor.... just be careful cause they are.... I know MOM!!!! wet. GAH!!!

I wish Dad would build you a craft room so you wouldnt take up the whole house with your craft junk.... ME too!!

Has anyone seen my socks?

Did you dig in the pile?

I love fall!! Really I do...smile. Maybe just one day after these sweet precious children of mine grow up and move out I can have a room to call my own.... Ahhhhh

  4. Morning Susie,

    They all look BEAUTIFUL!! The things you have to do to get them made.......

    I don't even sell crafts and I tend to have stuff everywhere when I am working on crafting stuff.

  5. Oh, my goodness, Susie. You sound like me. I was just talking to my husband last night about needing "just one more room" for my craft and homeschooling supplies. But then I wonder if I'll find a need for "just one more room" after that.

    I LOVE all the plaques! Are you taking them to a show, a shop, or etsy? Oh by the way, I got my little fall birdie. She is SOOOO cute. I have her hanging on my hutch in the dining room. Thanks so much. I need to head over to etsy and leave you feedback.

    Take care!

  6. I love your artwork. I wish that God had blessed me with such talent. Still haven't figured out what my talent is - LOL -. Fun post.

  7. I have two rooms like that (children gone) and it can be a very lonely thing! Enjoy piling that stuff everywhere. Jackie

  8. My house is a bit like that at the moment too! Material squares lying around, painting gear in the hallway, dirty washing piled up. I'm in the middle of a big project at the moment (painting the girls' bedroom)which is taking up all my time, so to make things easier I made up a job roster for the girls to help with the house. Just mainly doing the washing up after breakfast and lunch and folding the clean washing at the end of the day, but it makes things a lot easier not feeling like I have to do EVERYTHING.

  9. That's hilarious! And your plaques are so beautiful.

    Loved those pictures of your daughter from yesterday. She makes the most adorable nerd.

  10. Oh Susie Q, you are living my life. It seems I'm always saying "don't touch, they're wet."
    You see mine are still small enough to like to touch everything. And of course, when the paint is out I always get, "Mommy I want to paint."

    "Nope you can't, these are going to someone else." And Caroline responds by telling me that "Mommy I can paint and sell mine too."

    Well at least she's creative enough to think she can sell her own. Because I would buy every stinking one of them.

  15. Your plaques are fantastic. They're gorgeous enough to have scattered all over the house!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Your stuff is beautiful...it is always a dilemma where to create isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  17. So are you going to sell those plaques or tell us how to do them? I love them!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love the plaques!! I can't imagine making that many! Where is the craft show going to be???? You really do need a room for all your goodies.

  19. HI, those are great! Welcome to an artist life... ;) I've made my kids eat thier dinner on the floor because there was so much stuff on the table!

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is hilarious, but despite that... there's a whole lot of cuteness happening here!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have stuff scattered everywhere too but mine is not as beautiful as yours.

    ReplyDelete
  22. You have been busy!!! Isn't crafting so much fun!? :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have to admit it--that "mess" looks pretty familiar! Crafts everywhere! However, that's a pretty beautiful mess you have! They look gorgeous!

  24. I have a study...but I don't study...so it is about to have a makeover...craft room! Love your artwork!

  25. You're so cute! Your crafty things are really cute too. Hope you sell them out.

  26. Hi Susie!!! Oh my gosh, you have got to have a craft room...you just have to.
    1. it would help keep the house clean
    2. you could get to the fridge
    3. you could CREATE even more, accomplish more, make MORE MONEY...
    4. you would have a place to go to work-after all you are making real money here....
    5. your kids could find their socks!!!
    There you have it!
    I love all your creativity, but let's face it...I'm sure Michelangelo had his paints and tools all over the chapel when he was painting...and people probably had to step over everything just to pray!!!
    Blessings

  27. It is hard to find room in a home for crafts. I think all of us bloggers can sympathize. I'm trying to build a craft space into our guest room, but I don't know how efficient that will be. We'll see. Love the pretty plaques.

  31. Hi Susie, you've been a busy gal. Now that's a creative way to get out of having to cook dinner. At least it's an excuse I'd use as I hate cooking. :)
    ps. I sent you an email yesterday re: the rooster plaque. I used the email addy on your blog. If you didn't receive it, can you email me please?

  34. LOL! Very funny post! You've done a lot! My stuff takes over the house too. I dream of having a craft room someday! Right now I'm working on creating a little craft space in the master bedroom.

    Your daughter's homecoming pics were so cute! She's a beautiful girl!

  41. Hi Susie,
    Hey no need to apologize for only getting over to my blog every once in a while! I know you are busy-I'm crazy busy too! I just appreciate the fact you do stop in every once in a while and say "Hi" Thank you!
    Tell your dad not to miss Washington too much-The weather is supposed to change Wednesday night and it is going to get cold and rainy for a long time! I think he is doing it just perfect coming here in the Summer and there in the Winter-Getting the best of both worlds~
    Love all the signs you are crafting!
    Take Care Susie~♥

  45. Will I see this at the Braodmore Craft Festivle? I am looking forward to it!! Seeing your stuff and that great Gumbo! Oh! How I hope it is cold weather!!

  46. How funny! I have to say I can relate!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I will take one of each please! :) I cant wait until I move to my new house. I know that I will have a craft room and that makes me VERY, VERY, VERY happy!

    ReplyDelete
  48. your artwork is awesome! how in the world do you do those?! OR, are they in your Etsy shop?!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I thin that you should just kick them out. They could live outside, or maybe in the garage. Just tell them it's all a matter or priorities-crafts---or kids-I can so see the dilemma!
    So-why the large amout? Are you doing another show-did all of your other ones all sell out? (of course they did?) You are so good-I love the bird nests ones-I don't like to pick favs-but I really like that one! Makes me happy!

    ReplyDelete
  50. LOL, Susie! Girl, you have been too busy! They are beautiful! I would love to have a craft room too! For now it is all over my kitchen anytime I do anything! ~Rhonda :)

  52. My friend,
    Thanks for making me feel normal!

    You are so incredibly talented.
    I wish you loads of luck in selling every single one so you'll have the space to make more, more, more.

  53. very funny - I don't have children but for some reason the same sort of things occur in our house with me crafting all over the place. I love the pictures you have made - OMG they are gorgeous! Are they going to be for sale on etsy or something??

  54. S.O.S = SAVE OUR SHIP!
    Yup, craft season is upon us!!
    I've got both boys grown and out of our house and yet I've managed to infiltrate all rooms...minus the bathrooms...oops I forgot I was spray painting some lil doodas in there too. My ship may not be completely sinking ...but it's definitely taking on water. I better start paddling faster.LOL ;O
