Theme Goodie Baggie plus Other Goodies

I have plans to have some Theme Goodies Bags for Halloween, Fall and Christmas. These are in "the works". I've been making some Goodies Bags right along. Recent ones were for Alice and Lori in the color "Yellow". These Goodies bags contain fabrics, beads, buttons, laces and some threads.
I'm really looking forward to the "Fall" one. I have some brown silk velvet and other great fall colors in silks and rayon, linen and velveteen. Sorry, no HONKING ORANGE at this time. It doesn't lend itself to the color plan.

These photos kinda show you what I'm working with. Only they just show a fraction of the "goodies" that I have on hand. I have several metal hearts, broken jewelry of all kinds, hole in the belly spiders and ... well so much more.
I can't begin to tell you just how much more, but if you have a THEME in mind, contact me and I'll tell you what I have that might work. I'm certain that I have something here. As much as there is, there just has to be something. Right now I know that I'm short on fish buttons or beads. I have plans to sort all these baggies and boxes and other containers and get this stuff organized. Ja ja ja. No, really!

I also have needle book Goodies bags in your choice of colors. This pattern shown is one I made up myself. It's a double fold with a padded heart reverse applique to embroidery an initial on. The $40.00 Goodies bag contains the muslin pattern, enough different fabrics for the outside, fabric for the lining and pockets, batting, wool to pad the heart, Coordinating color of Wool for 8 pages, an assortment of buttons and beads, laces and other trim.

This photo shows one of the Needle book goodies bags partial contents.

I also have some old embroideries and hand made laces and edgings. These are very limited to stock on hand.

And not to forget some free clip art that appealed to me. Like this froggie

Thanks for looking. Let me know if I can help you with your projects. You can contact me at:

What a beautiful Spring day........

And I'm stuck inside trying to get some more of this housework done. I had to take Ray back to the hospital last night. He couldn't breath and was coughing his toenails up. Actually, he has been doing that for the past 4 or 5 days. He wanted to wait until Monday and me phone Dr. Clairborn in Wichita for an appointment. He has so much work to do over at the shop and felt that he should be working on it. Yeah, right. I finally talked him into seeing his primary physican, Dr. Stevens. Then about 10:30, he decided that he couldn't wait any longer. I talked to him just a little bit ago and he said that Dr. Stevens was reviewing all the test and x-rays that they took during the week that he was there this month already.
I'm moving furniture around. Did you know that to move this piece out of the file room into the kitchen, you have to clean the kitchen in the area that you plan on putting it. Then the piece in the file room that needs to go across the room has to be cleaned off, the kitchen machines moved to the kitchen, and then the shelf unit in here in the dining room has to be unloaded, un-screwed from the wall, moved, screwed into that wall and ready to re-load. You cannot believe the mess all of this is causing. Or should I say "adding too?"
I'm not handling this second trip to the hospital as well as I did the first time. I'm worried about Ray. And I must admit, I'm worried about me. What am I supposed to do with him gone? I guess I should consider keeping those thoughts until I really do need to worry about it. I could cry. Poor me. Poor Ray.
Sorry this is so doomsdayish. Back to my mess.

Taking time off

Ray asked this morning if I couldn't do something about the dust. And there IS dust. I have, between trying to get baggies out and pain, let this place go. It IS bad. I'm not much of a housekeeper to begin with and ... what else can I say?

So, starting today, April 2, 08, until April 14th Crazy Judyth's Stuff will be closed. I have a few orders here that I will continue to work on and mail out.

Sorry to do this but my husband's health comes above all else. Ray has survived Lung Cancer TWICE. The first time his right lung was completly removed. And as his left lung has to share space with his heart, his breathing is a major problem. Also the fact that he had a spot of cancer in it..... He is on Oxygen full time. The exception is when he is here in the house watching tv.

Thank you for your understanding. It is appreciated.

I love you guys. You are what keeps me sane.
