I hate being sick, but what I hate more is when my lil gnomes and fairy are sick!  It's been quite a week...or two.  Me & Max are still sick.  He has double ear infections, and I have the never-ending head cold.  I thought I was doing better yesterday, but woke today feeling "big-headed" again.  Needless to say I haven't been creating, shoot, I haven't even been doing my chores.  I am sllooowwly adding products to my new website.  Go check it out at, so far only some jewelry has been added.  I am going to keep added my stuff and other "fun finds", so come back often, and shop!

Wow~almost 100

I can't believe i've almost got 100 signed up for my giveaway...if so, I'll have 2 "mystery lots".  Here is another "peek" at my giveaway... 

My Best customer

Tonight I made a lil gift for my best customer, who just happens to be my best friend, who also happens to be my mother!  I can't thank her enough for her support and inspiration!  She has been such a BIG help and I wouldn't be where I am with out her...SO Mom...Thank you and I LOVE YOU!

What a deal!

I went thriftin' friday and found lots of goodies, but by best deal was these cute coffee/tea mugs.  They were marked .50 cents each (originally I had only 3), I went to pay and she said these are buy 4 get~4 free, so of course I got 5 more, then she charged me only .80 cents... a dime a mug!  I have one at my workbench that I forgot to picture.  The little green guy holds a stick of butter, his head comes off and he's perfect for butterin' corn on the cob.  Aren't they cute?

Lil Lovelies

I made some Valentines cards last night and listed them in my etsy shop.  I was up WAY too late...after I added my stuff to etsy I started blog-hopping and well, ya know, I was up even later.  I need to get some work done now, so I can play later :0)  I want to add an etsy link and pics to my blog...maybe I can figure it out...

Pay it forward

This is an idea Charlotte Kemsley started at    thatcharlottekemsley
She has invited everyone to take part in this Pay It Forward. 

I was blog-hopping, which has been my obsession since I heard about One World~One Heart giveaway event, and I came across a "pay it forward" giveaway.  I've been wanting to get involved and here is the perfect opportunity.  So the first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive something I create, I only ask that you re-pay me by adding the above info about Charlotte, and her brilliant idea & to "pay it forward" on your blog.  Fair enough...hmmm what should I create...


Well I've been busy redoing my workspace so I haven't created much.  I did list some of my items on Etsy.  I already sold some of my tags, woo hoo, my 1st Etsy sell.  So now I have a clean, organized workspace, no reason to not create.  My reason for the overhaul was that I wanted my sewing machine out, and accessible.  I have some really cute vintage fabric I want to use, for what, I'm not sure yet!?!  
I do have a sneak peek at my "Mystical Mystery" prize...Hope you like!

Craft Swap???

Well I'm having sooo much fun blog-hoppping and making new friends.  I am curious about craft swaps.  Are there "craft clubs"?  Any info would be appreciated.  I would love to be involved in a swap.  I don't even know how to do an ATC exchange!  I'm a newbie to ALL this blog & web craft stuff, several of the blogs I've been to have all sorts of fun things to do, I just don't know HOW to get involved.

I've been seeing this all over the blogs and finally went and signed up for it.   You should too~Go~NOW.  She has beautiful easter stuff as well as all sorts of holiday "Goodies".  You won't regret it, I only regret not signing up for it sooner!

I'm a rock star!

So I found this blog-hopping and thought it was it is~get your rock band album   In case your wondering about mine, here is the info.  Blish was a writer for Star Trek in the 60's, my quote ending was from Woody Allen, and I lucked out and got a cool train scene.  They all melded together nicely, I envision an old B&W movie scene and when the train roars by the hats go flying.

That ME!

My littlest stinker (3) took this wonderful pic of me...future photographer???   Hmmm maybe not!!!.  It's funny tho, here he is with my other stinker, we were at big brothers hockey practice (he is on the green team, The Shamrocks)

project completed

So I finished my altered art project I started awhile ago.  It is so darn cute...I love it...I don't know if I can sell it took lots of love to create, I had beaded all the leaves and some of the flowers.  Of course it is made using recycled materials.  Some beautiful danish woodcut fabric, old flowers and fake tree remennants, and a picture from one of my favorite fairy painters, Warwick Goble.  Of course it has one of my beloved "BELIEVE" signs...that seems to be my mantra for 2008.  What do yo think?

Egad...I need to get busy on adding goodies to my site!  I didn't realize how quickly this One world~One heart annual blog event/giveaway would take exciting  This sounds really fun and is sooo exciting...I could spend ALL day on the internet, jumping from blog to blog to blog...oooh and maybe I'll win something.  I am going to gather some of my goodies and list them.  Any way back to the hunny just switched my website over to a new system (joomla was being hacked to much), so keep checkin back, i'll be adding stuff often, I SHOULD be doing that right now, but I'm having way too much fun, maybe I'll make a freind or two (the reason for the event...right?)

Hmmm...some thought on our thoughts

So...I haven't been on in a while again, but I am hopeful for a productive weekend.  It has been a busy week and I've been feeling crummy.  I did make some super cute tags with botanicals and old fashioned ladies on them.  I am hoping to get them, and a lot of other stuff, on my website to sell.  I also started a fun blog motivator called "Thing-a-day", the idea is to create or be artistic or cook a new dish, basically anything  you can do, and to do it daily.  Kinda like how I started this blog out to be, only the daily thing trips me up, life gets busy with kids.  here is where it is at....

So the thought thing is from my aunt, she sent this neat email about negative & positive thoughts.  I took out the good stuff, so here is the gist of it...We are told to write down our goals...WHY?  Written goals produce visible thoughts.  Thoughts produce actions.  Actions produce results.  Your thoughts determine who you are, what you do, and what you have.  Choose wisely.  The you that peoples see is a collection of all of your thoughts up to this moment.  You are what you think why not think positively!  The beautiful doll in the pic was given to me on my 3rd birthday from my sweet aunt.  She made the clothes for her 33 years ago.  I have asked her to do a craft swap, I'll make her some jewelry in return for a new outfit for my doll, I'm excited to see what she'll make!?!?
