I'm Still Here!

I was doing so good updating this almost daily there for a bit. But I've been lagging lately. Lagging in everthing Etsy it seems like. I did have a quite a few sales though. And I did just sell a yellow Duckie. But I feel lazy and not ambitious at all! That's not to say I'm not doing anything. I've been working on a cross stitch picture for a friend that I bought off Etsy. I'm making it for a Christmas present. I thought I should start early on it! However, I haven't crocheted for a few days. Which is weird for me! I normally crochet every day. Oh well, I guess a break doesn't hurt anyone.

I promise as soon as I get my ambition back, I'll have something new to post. I'm almost done with a particular project I was working on before I became lazy.

I also need to get my butt moving on promoting my shop again. I'm stumped on how to promote the wonderful items Mom has made. Hmmm......

Fish Tissue Cozy

Hello! A new line will be available in my shop starting this weekend. This is the first of four tissue cozies. The fish tissue cozy is currently available in my shop. These, of course, were made by my mom. I can't sew very good at all. But Mom is awesome! These cozies are made for a travel size tissue pack (one is included with a purchase of a cozy). However, you could even put some loose tissues in the cozy. Keep checking the shop for the other cozies!

Treasury and Memorial Day

My Frightened Fruit Kabob was recently included in another treasury. I've lost count of how many it has been in. I think this treasury is super cute. It would be really cool if it made it to the front page of Etsy. A girl can dream can't she? Thank you miasophia!
I would also like to take some time to pimp my mom's goods that are in my shop. She has awesome merchandise perfect for the 4th of July or any patriotic person you know! She has some spoons and a fork painted with a flag, such as this sugar spoon. Painted silverware not for you? How about a patriotic pin. Once again, there are a few different ones to choose from, such as this heart shaped flag pin. Are you just not interested in flags? Maybe you need something to put your cell phone or mp3 player in. Mom has also made some shirt shaped cozies, such as this Asian print one. Check them out!!
Have a great long weekend! Happy Memorial Day!

New Patterns Available!

The Duckie bunny ears, bikini, and tutu patterns are now available in my Etsy shop. Now you can outfit your Duckies! These patterns are sold all together. They will be available separately as well as together with the Duckie pattern (I'll be listing that later today). I hope you like them!
A (final probably) update on the dog situation. I asked my landlord again last night about getting a chihuahua. I told them that I found out the puppy would be fine in my apartment (in the bathroom) while I'm at work. The lady said she needed to talk to her husband and would call me back last night. But they never called me back. I'm thinking she was trying to think of a nice way to tell me no. But I guess we shall see. If she never calls me back, then I'll forget about the dog.
Have a good weekend!

I Survived!

Hello everyone! It's been a really long time since I posted on here. I've been playing with my nephews and now recovering. I don't know how kids have so much energy! As I'm sure you can guess, I haven't accomplished much. I am working on something for my shop that I will most likely be able list next week. With any luck anyway!

I have been working on my magna drawing. It's not perfect by any means and is really my first magna person I've drawn. He's not my original idea, it is a dude from the book I bought.

This Isn't Just for Eating!

Silverware isn't just for eating anymore! You can now decorate your home with these decorative forks (and soon to come spoons). Each piece is one of a kind. My mom (with masking help from my sister) did a fabulous job. The fork is now available in my Etsy Shop. The spoons will be coming soon!
I should also note that I will be on "vacation" from Tuesday, May 6th through Tuesday, May 13. I'll be helping my mom watch my two nephews (age 1 and 4, please pray for us). So I'm not sure how much of a vacation it will be. But it'll still be fun. However, due to that, I will most likely not be able to ship anything until I get back. Unless it's something Mom has made.
Also, an update on the dog situation. I talked to my landlords last night. They stated that I can't have one, well, in more words than that and for a different reason than I thought they would. I wish I could be like my friends and get one anyway. But I'm too much of a good girl. So I guess it's a no go for right now. : ( Tear.

I want a dog

A chihuahua to be exact. My family had a chihuahua mix. And ever since I moved to my current apartment, the thought of getting one of my own has kind of been rolling around in the back of my head. Recently, I've been thinking more seriously. And this weekend has got me wanting one really, really bad. For the past few days, I've been checking in on two pugs for a friend at work. Today, I went to a birthday party for a dog that another co-worker has. One person brought her teacup chihuahua that she just got. And then another person who was at the party went and got one too. Now I really, really, really want a chihuahua. A regular one though. I'm afraid a teacup chihuahua would get lost in my apartment.

Here are the cons. My apartment contract says I can't have pets without permission from my landlords. I've been a really good renter. But I'm not sure if they'd agree. I'm trying to decide if I'm serious enough about a dog to ask. However, I don't want to get too serious about wanting one in case they say no. I live in a duplex and my neighbors are chain smokers I'm sure they way the smell wafts over here. Maybe I should just call my landlords and find out and be done with it.

The worst part is I even have names picked out if I get a dog. Lelu for a girl (from the Fifth Element, of course) or Chevy for a boy. For the car, not Chevy Chase. Even though a drive a Ford. Then I can say I own a Chevy. :D I'm not sure if I want a boy or a girl. And I don't really care the color.

What should I do???

Canadian Shipping Now Available!

Happy Weekend!

I have updated my Etsy shop so I now offer Canadian shipping. (And international shipping, by request).

In other news, I rented Juno last night. I've been wanting to see it. It was pretty good. I don't know if it's something I'll eventually buy to watch over and over. Maybe if I can find it used. I did really like the music and the story line and the look of the movie. Ellen Page was excellent. And I am a huge Jennifer Garner fan, so of course, I thought she was good.
