Crafty Produce...


I'm not talking about milk and eggs here...

I'm talking about "crafty produce"...the end product that results from a whole weekend creating in my pajamas! Got it?

I had some birthdays that I was (very) late on and now I think I'm all caught up...for now ;)

Do you think the "Birthday Girls" will forgive my tardiness???


One more question, I need your expert blog advice please...

Do you think my "new" background is a wee bit too much or do you like the change?

You can be honest with me...I can take it! ;)


Lori said...

i am sure all will be forgiven when your recipients have their beautiful hand crafted creations to savor and love!!!

Diana Meade said...

I love the background. I would tell you. I think the colors blend in nicely and I wasn't distracted at all. Very nice. Good job.

Sandi said...

Is that a skull in the bottom right corner? Have you gone to the dark side? Just kidding. Love it. Love everything you do. You are so good.
Back home. Let's get together.

Theresa said...

Great produce:) Love the new background and all belated gifts will be LOVED! Enjoy your day!

Hope Ellington said...

I love the background....but I LOVED your other one. I was just saying so yesterday. I am not kidding...I seriously was making a mental note about how much I loved it. I also love your birthday creations....want to know when mine is...(LOL) Who would ever be upset getting something as gorgeous as that a little late? Hope you are well and had fun in your jammies.

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

Not only do I love the background - I love it way more than my own. Now I'm going off to pout.

(great produce!!!!!!)

I am not really sure what it looked like before...but I think a blog should reflect the not worry about your visitors. I think it looks great..very gothic romance.

I sometimes wonder if my polka dots..keep people away. Then I have to think....if I like it..that's what counts. I do get tired of my blog headers and stuff though.....and the polka dots may retire soon~who knows.

Debby said...

Everything is gorgeous, everyone will forgive. I love those PJ weekends. Your background is perfect.

LiLi M. said...

I don't think anyone will be mad at YOU! And I love these kind of speaking blog backgrounds! NB. you can change as much as you like. I try to change each month!

Linda said...

You were very productive this weekend and made so many lovely things. I think your background is interesting and blends in well.

sissie said...

Wow, you have certainly created some lovely things. Lucky people that will be receiving them.

I like your blog background. Looks good.


Julie Ann said...

Beautiful "produce"!! I'm sure your friends will be delighted!! Your background is wonderful!

Linda said...

What a fun way to spend the weekend!
I just love your "Beautiful Produce". The friend who receives this is going to be so, so happy! I just started reading your blog and love it, but I dont remember what your background was before. And I think this back ground looks fab! I think its a keeper!

Karen said...

Girl, if it makes you happy - it makes me happy! I'm not looking at your background, I'm looking at all your gorgeous posts.
All will be forgiven when see what they get! HOLY COW!!! Loving the lace and ribbons and VELVET! (Is that some of the private vintage stash that Sophie says you never use? ) Yummy! Positively yummy - every single item.
I wish I could change my background . . . I'm afraid I'll screw it all up . . . God only knows how easy it is for me to do that!
HA! Your word verification is "headmume". I think that means your background stays!

Debra@Common Ground said...

Love the background, Jodie, it's so YOU! (skull and all, ha ha)
Your Birthday girls are surely blessed!
big hugs,

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Jodie,

I am sure that you will be forgiven from the birthday girls, for your tardiness. They are going to be over the moon.
Glad that you had a fun weekend, creating in your jammies.
I love your background and it fits in very well with everything vintage.

Happy week

Jane said...

You create the most beautiful gifts....should I tell you when my birthday is now or should I wait until later?
I think your new background is fabulous. Very unique....just like you (and that is meant in a good way!!!)

Linda B said...

I love your background, and I'm jealous about you spending a whole weekend crafting in your PJ's;)

Julie said...

Everyone will forgive you! The background is very vintage...just at touch dark & very cool!

June said...

Your creations will thrill and delight and I sure don't think they will turn them down! Beautiful stuff girl.
I love the background! I'm with Tristan, I think I'll go pout with him.

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

I would for sure keep some chicken in our home if they would lay such gorgeous "eggs"! Even though you are 7 months late for my birthday I forgive you ;-).
Your new background is wonderful, just the scull iritates me a tiny little bit off Halloween season. That certainly won't hold me back from visiting and loving your blog though:-).

T's Daily Treasures said...

I'm surprised you changed your background. It is different. Looks very romantic. Obviously I'm missing something because I don't see a skull anywhere. :) A weekend in pajamas creating such wonderful gifts sounds heavenly to me. You always come up with the most fabulous things. Sending lots of good wishes and blessings your way, Tammy

Alison Gibbs said...

If I were one of the licky birthday girls I wouldn't care how late my present was, especially when it was something so special.
Loving the background

Geralyn Gray said...

I love what you made........I love how you mix your love of vintage paper with is a beautiful mix.......wanted to say I love your new backround and it is you.....but, honestly I am not crazy about the skull in the lower right corner.

Cozy Little House said...

You're asking "the queen of a bit too much" about your blog background? I think it's fine, lovely in fact. And what you make, crafty produce, is delectable!

Dreams and Decor said...

I do believe those birtday girls will forgive you! I think they will LOVE their gifts!!! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I am signing up as a follower right now on yours--your blog is gorgeous! Such eye candy! And I love your background! Stop by again anytime! Patti

KarenHarveyCox said...

Given how lovely these creations are, I think that your Birthday girls will squeal and forget that they are overdue. I just found you blog. It is lovely.

Rebecca said...

Thanks so much for stopping your birthday gifts, they are wonderful! You have been busy, wish I could be that productive but lately I have been busy with life's details. I enjoyed your blog.

Becca said...

lol....Love the skull! and the glass of bubbly :) looks great Jodie!

My Grama's Soul said...

First the things you made for your friends. asked for honesty.

I feel it is TOO OVER THE TOP to quote you. I much preferred the other one or I'm sure you will come up with some other fabulous design.



sexyjavabelle said...

I love everything about it except that skull. that thing is very distracting, its creepy. but if you keep it i will still read your blog just try no to look that way-lol!

IM GIRL said...

The first thing I noticed was that you changed the background before even reading your quest for comments. My first thought was....
Wow! I love the background!
Great job!

Yes your friends will forgive you when they recieve those fabulous treasures! You are so talented-I just love seeing your creative artwork:). As for the background-I love it!!! Of course, Kramer thinks you need something with more cats:).



BTW, I didn't even realize that Kramer was in any of the pics in my last post-only his beloved auntie Jodie could have spotted his fuzzy face!

Pearl said...

Your pillows are dreamy and all that lace and ribbon yummo! A whole wkend in your jammies now thats the best. I really like your background it's very vintagy, it does contrast with your header. Well there's my 2 cents worth. Thanks for the comment on my blog and the incouragement, I will have to have you make some stuff for my shop!

Hey girlfriend! When I get back from Sri Lanka, I expect, mmm ... let me see, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28 ... that's 5 birthday wishes from you so get your thinking cap on. I've decided to do something special with them all so keep them coming! Thanks for stopping by and always being such an inspiration. Best wishes always, Tammy

T's Daily Treasures said...

Hey! It's moi again! I just read the post where you replaced the second thoughtfulness with thankfulness. HA! Yesterday I went back through all the posts to write down the wonderful wishes you've sent me and I did catch the repeat, but I was gonna let you slide. I hope your list is all in order now. :) Wishing you a beautiful day. Tammy

Teacup Mosaics said...

Yummy wonderful produce! What a fun weekend in your PJs, we all need a weekend like that every once in a while. OK on to the background. The skull is scaring me:) just my opinion but I think it takes away from the beauty of your blog. There I said it, will you ever blog with me again????
OOX, Kelley said...

I am a wee bit behind in your posts. Seems my 3 kids expect to be fed sometimes, please mama stop gluing! But your creative weekend was most productive! I want more pics of each item so I can savor more. The Amour heart really caught my eye, there is some really amazing sheet music out there. Lisa
