I hate to say it . . . .

. . . . but there are NO MORE "Fa la la"s! I just can't do anymore and get them out {long} before Christmas.

future Fa's - bare with only white paint and a little pearl!

Last night, I was getting started with the "Fa"s {as you can see in the above picture} and then I got a BUNCH of orders for these guys! All day I've been trying to get on here and tell you guys I'm tapped out . . . . but this is just the first time!!

Not only am I doing the normal stuff around here - I'm trying to prep for tomorrow's feast. Yes, that's right - I'm cooking for Thanksgiving! Pray we don't end up in the hospital!! With Hudson still puny, we thought it best to stay at home. My dad, step-mom {and maybe brother} will be here. Unfortunately, my sister has to work - or maybe that was her excuse not to eat my cooking!! And since Krista's fam is in Chicago, she will be joining us!! She is actually going home next week {due to shoulder surgery} - so she thought it best to stay in Nashville for the Thanksgiving holiday. I couldn't have her NOT eat a real meal on such a holiday - so I actually forced her to come!!

Speaking of Hudson - he went to Vandy yesterday and had more blood work. His numbers are all some-what normal {except for his protein.} BUT that has increased significantly and the doctor seemed impressed! So fortunately, instead of 4 to 6 months of steroids, we are looking at more like 4 to 6 weeks! Yeah! His trunk already looks so swollen from those things and they're not the easiest thing to give him. Actually, it takes an act of Congress to hold him down and then an act of God to get him to swallow that stuff. AND today he finally started walking. The poor fellow was just so weak {at first} then he was just so use to being carried! Lugging his 38 pound fannie around got old - especially when you know he can do it! It's amazing what they can do when they don't know anyone is watching!!!!

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! We all have so much to be thankful for.

I can't believe that I am the first to comment, that never happens to me. :) Yeah! I am so happy that it is only weeks that Hudson has to take his steriods. Poor little guy, I am glad that he is on his way to getting better. I don't know how you do it all girl. You amaze me. You are "Super Kim!" You are going to be Fa La La out! I hope that you have a wonderful break and know that I am thankful that you are my friend!

love ya'll!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!! Awesome on all the Fa La La orders wish I could had been apart of the orders this year, maybe one year. I am so happy that Hudson is doing better. Enjoy your dinner, I hope it is wonderful as do I of my own. :)

Scumbag Sam said...

Vandy is wonderful! I went there when we were stationed at Ft. Campbell and I found out I was pregnant at age 38! I am so glad that Hudson is getting better, one more thing to be thankful for! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Casey said...

Hello! I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to leave a note. I love love love your pieces...too adorable! Keep up the great work and creativity. Happy holidays!

MeganSloan said...

Wow, that's a lot! What kind of paint do you use? And the pearl? I noticed some shine on your monogram paintings in the previous post... is that pearl too?

seatea said...

im just casually browsing blogs, and have no interest in crafts or your page, but heres a tip. i'm familiar with the field of advertising and design and i noticed the image that says "Small Worlds: Incredibly Cute Personalized Art." I think it would do you a lot of good to make that image bigger. When people come to your blog, they will immediately know what it's about, which is important so they don't get turned off because they're confused. also, it is very hard to read because of the size. I'm 19 with decent vision and i have to squint to read it. think of how it is for older people.

Cool Fa-la-la-la-la's!

Congrats on your blog of note!

Marci said...

Thinking of your little guy. May you and your family enjoy the holiday with out a hospital visit. Happy Thanksgiving.

Robot Nine said...

Congrats on bewing a blog of note, and in the nice guy way, not the creepy way, damn you have pretty eyes.

Sheila said...

Those "Fa la la"s are very cool.

I'm glad Hudson is doing better and he doesn't have to takes the steroids for months.

Good luck with cooking Thanksgiving Dinner. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Lacy said...

Take it as easy as possible Kim...you plate is full girl...not your turkey plate, but life plate! Your work is amazing, but like you said you can only do so much. I hope Hudson is better each day and that Thanksgiving is a special one for you.

Dennis Fleming said...

I am sorry, but I'm not sure what Fa La La's are?

Blog of note...what an honor! I have just viewed your entrys and have enjoyed them...especially your replies to the unknown. There were more blogs listed but I was drawn to yours by name only...endless possibilities. Now that is a statement.
Happy Thanksgiving! Hope your meal cooks well and there are no lumps where you do not plan them.

Kimberly said...

Happy Thanksgiving Kim. I am glad Hudson is feeling a bit better.

I've been soooo busy, {although next to you, not quite so much, lol} and I am finally able to catch up on your blog. Your Fa la la's are fabulous! I LOVE them! And it looks like everyone else did too! Sorry about your camera. Mine is broken in the same exact place! I just deal though. I wish I could get a new one! Someday....

Anywho, I hope you get to take some time to rest today... between cooking and everything else! :o)

Driftwood said...

I just found your blog today on 'Blogs of Note'; I really like what you have going on here! Keep it up!

I have to buy one of those 'Fa La La's for my girlfriend.

Alicia D said...

I love the work! It's very cute.

I had to show your site to my mom too. We're both entrepreneurs, so we're also inspired by (and interested in) your success. All the best to you and Happy Thanksgiving!

midori01 said...

I passed by your blog page through Blogs of Note and I like those letterings in blocks and letters in art in general. I know I am not on topic, but I do not know where else to post:?

IHFB said...

this's an interesting post.

Su said...

I wonder if your anonymous is the same as my anonymous; mine can't spell either, and is also unfriendly. Maybe there is a whole clan of them.

Anyway, love your artwork! I'm a fabric-and-yarn-craft kind of girl myself, partly because "real" art is outside my talent. It is really inspiring that you manage to work from home with 4 little ones.

My Beautiful Mess! said...

So glad to hear that your little man is doing better and only has to be on those yucky steriods for a few weeks. Those things puff you all up - bless his heart!!

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!!

And BLESS your pea pickin heart Kim - you arent even going to be able to write after you finish all your signs!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Will Webbyte said...

I noticed that you said some people have negative things to say.
Well that is just the way some people are. I just bless them and go on. I used to take this personally until I learned this negativity has nothing to do with me.

I think your blog is great! Have a wonderful holiday season and great job on the blogging!

What a fun little blog. you are definately talented and very deserving of "blog of note!"

Congrats and best of luck.

Dotsblog said...

Hi Kim,
I'm new to your blog (saw you on blogs of note and had to take a peek). I know what its like to have a child needing help, yet not receive it because "he just a late bloomer", keep pushing for everything you feel your children need. I finally became a speech pathologist so my kid would get the help he needed.

Lisa said...

So glad I checked out the Blog of Note today...it led me here. Your blog is very funny and interesting and your artwork is fantastic!Such talent! LOVED the Fa La la art. Too bad I'm late...perhaps next year I will be quicker! So glad to read that your little guy is doing better.
