Master Procrastinator ~

I swear this year has been the worst ever.  My taxes are not hard to do and I use a computer program over at DSO's.  So why do I wait?  No good answer.  I WILL get them done today come hell or high water. 

A couple purchases I've recently made.  Not things I normally buy, but I just could not resist.  Friend Linda (Primdollie Koch on Facebook or Primitive Tymes on Early Works Mercantile) sews to perfection.  This little mouse just makes me smile. 

Also purchase on Early Works Mercantile (The Beary Patch ~ Billie Cudney) this little mohair elephant was calling my name.

Melissa and I leave Friday for the Ann Arbor hook in.  The hook in is Saturday but set up begins at 7am so we would have to leave hours before the crack of dawn.  All my goods are packed and ready.  I am not going to stress myself by trying to get any more done!  The fat lady has sung :)  Here are my completed hook pouches.  It is a new venue for us so we're hoping for good sales.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Those darn taxes are always a headache. Mine isn't done either.

My favorite hook pouch is the paisley one. I wish you a wonderful time and great sales.
Hugs, Julia

I am sure you will not have a problem selling those pouches. If any don't sell please sell them on your blog!

I just ship my tax stuff to my daughter. We sent Pam to college to become a CPA. She got her MBT on her own. enough is enough. Now it is paying off. Your pouches will sell like hot cakes ... they are perfect and so sweet. Enjoy your trip.
Folk Art Hugs and Peace for all, Barb

You made a couple of great purchases...I'm not into mice but that one is really cute.

I saw your cartoon and realized we have a 'card' the same that we have never sent to anyone...I like it so much I can't give it away lol
Have a huge success at the hook-in with your new creations! Love them.
