Happy Holidays :)

It's been quite a while since I've posted.  Life has taken over!  It seems as if I live on the road these days.  My kids are heavy into sports.  My son just wrapped up cross-country and is now starting middle school basketball.  My daughter's soccer team has had to travel out of state a couple of times within the last few months, which put my creativity on hold.  My mind is still coming up with ideas to work on, but I need to find the time to actually do it! Don't forget to visit Cat's Alley on facebook

Meanwhile, I'll be posting pictures of life's treasures every now and then.  
Here's one to get your appetite going!  These Biscochos have been a tradition in our family for as long as I can remember!  They are a must-have at Christmas... along with some good 'ole Mexican hot chocolate!  My daughter made some for her semester final in food & nutrition and I'm soooo happy she did! :) yum!!!  She used a combination of our home-town recipe and one from Muy Bueno Cookbook.  The cookbook should be available in the fall of 2012.  I can't wait to get my hands on all those recipes!

I hope y'all are enjoying the cooler weather and wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Don't get me wrong! I'm so happy to be super busy these last few months!  So many things are going on at once, finally :)  Homecoming season started off with a bAnG!  I've been steadily taking orders for the school spirit rings and have also gotten the chance to make spirit rings, spirit sticks & head wear for youth team sports!  Thanks to my wonderful friends/family, I'm now branching out to different parts of Texas!  Homecoming mums & Garters have always been a Texas tradition but Spirit rings are a new novelty item to those in the west Texas area and can now be found at Jazzi Girlz Jewelz Boutique 4555 E. University Suite B-11, Odessa, TX

Jazzi's Owner has an eye for the trendiest fashion accessories.  You won't find what every other store has in west Texas.  She offers a variety of items!  Purses ~ jewelry ~ shoes ~ home decor & tons of children's accessories!  Cat's Alley is one of the artists featured at Jazzi Girls Jewelz Boutique! Look for Jazzi on FB and "like" her page!

You can also visit Cat's Alley on Facebook and "Like" the page to let me know you were there!  More than likely, I'll be posting on fb a lot more than my blog.    Browse through the pictures of the cute caps I've been working on!  If you see something you'd like to order, leave me a message :)
Enjoy the pics!

Fluff & Stuff

If you're on Facebook, like Cat's Alley

While I'm making these fluffly things, I catch up on my novela, Triunfo del Amor.  I'm too impatient to watch it on TV.  My BFF told me about  Apparently, the novela is ahead in Mexico and now I can watch episode after episode...I can't get enough of that soap!

More Hair Candy!

What else could you call these round, yummy hair clips and headbands? They look like candy to me :) You can now find these goodies at Madison Jane and Bumble Beads, located on the south side of the historic Denton Downtown Square!

My daughter's favorite! 6"

This hair clip has a movable spinner.

Steam punk fun!

A touch of vintage tapestry and ribbon makes this special.

Playing Catch Up

It's been forever since I've posted!  Things have been super busy in my world.  I could probably start another blog about the other "stuff" that keeps my busy.  I'm afraid if I started, I wouldn't be able to stop.  I'm sitting here listening to the thunderstorms once again.  They've been a little scary and the aftermath has been stressful.  
My husbands going camo!

I'm so glad I love my neighbors.  We get to visit more often :)

I guess I really shouldn't complain.  Most of the state of Texas has been ravaged by fires due to dry conditions and high winds.  It's been horrible!!

Anyway... Sorry if I dragged you down a bit.  In the midst of all this chaos, I've managed to keep on making things.  It really is a stress reliever for me!  Hope the pictures below brighten up this post :)
