My Octopus have 7 legs.....hmmmm

CATEGORY: | Thursday, November 30, 2006

These are the 3 Octopus I sent to Austin Texas...a little shop called Creatures Boutique.
I am still sewing and sewing up a storm and had a little break last night. My friend Andrea came over and cut my hair. She has mad hair skills and it was super, duper wonderful to see her. She is one of the most amazing friends I have ever had and I just adore her. The rain has started and the snow is melting....Memphis woke up and was sooooooooo bummed. Jason woke her up last night to show her the snow...well she wasn't exactly asleep yet, I was keeping the fact it was snowing from her because she already wasn't sleeping. Anywho when she woke up she almost cried. She's over it now but it's such a drag when she is bummed. Must keep sewing...happy Thursday.

In da house.......snowed in

Urban Craft Uprising is this weekend....December 2nd & 3rd.....Seattle Center Exhibition Hall...11am to 5 pm. First 100 folks in the door get free swag bags....wish I got one.
I am going to be there so I have been seeeeeewwwwiiiiinnnnggg.....aaaaahhhhh.
I will post some of my creations later but right now I guess being snowed in is not soooo bad.
We went for our daily walk and OMG I was sooooooooo cold. Poor little Gucci had on his Christmas sweater and was still too cold. Had to bundle him in with M and her blanket. Anywho...hello out there..... Can you see the Gucc...we didn't see him right away. He likes to burry himself in the clean warm laundry. It makes my husband furious but I just think it's cute.

Sewing, sewing, sewing and more sewing.....

Happy Thanksgiving........ Here's 5 of the 37 I just did for a whsl order.

It's raining it's pouring....

CATEGORY: | Tuesday, November 21, 2006

It's raining again and really windy. I kind of like it. We still go for our walk it's just a different kind of walk and when it's pouring Gucci wears a raincoat. He absolutely hates it but it keeps him kind of dry.

Did anyone say stuffing.....


So...I have almost completed my whsl order and all is almost right in the world. I only have 2 more left to sew, bios to write and photos to take. I photograph everything I make. I am still digging being an extreme homebody and I have to say I am a little afraid I like it a bit too much. Very weird for me to realize. I bet it's just a phase. Etsy has been giving me some trouble but it sure looks nice.
Anywho...it's super duper late and I must rest now although I wish I could just keep sewing and check more things off my ever growing crazy list.....xoxo Thanks for all the compliments and encouragment. I appreciate it very much. :)

Giving thanks....

So....I am sewing my little fingers to the bone to finish a whsl order and for Urban Craft Uprising.
I woke up at 5:30 am and can not go back to sleep. I had a mini break down last night. My hands actually started hurting. I am working so hard that I am wearing myself out. On top of that a recent visit to a friend's house made me have that same realization that I am beyond ready to own my own home yet feel this may never be possible.(I keep this fact on the down low most of the time) I know there are far more tragic and awful things happening in the world and I am very, very lucky in life. Wonderful and supportive husband...who is the light of my life, great family, super friends, gorgeous & smart daughter(who amazes me daily and is greatest gift), mad visual skills....ok I am trying to cheer myself up. I guess sometimes I just wish I was one of those people that had family to help me get ahead. So, I am going to stop that negative thinking right now and just be thankful for what I do have. Thanksgiving always makes me go all introspective. I guess it's super simple...be happy and thankful for what you have today. Happy almost Thanksgiving.... (photos...ikea rug-they only had one and it did not have a price, yep that's me, fall, crazy waxed lips a friend gave us...you should see all of our waxed lip portraits...hehe)

Supply vs. Demand

CATEGORY: | Monday, November 13, 2006

I really can't believe I am saying this but there is a larger demand than I have supply for. Due to my collaboration with Supermaggie, whom I love dearly, I have been getting a lot of whsl requests. I have also gotten a bunch of special order requests on Etsy and well....I am overwhelmed to say the least. I have also gotten requests from my in town whsl and other whsl for reorders. I am sewing my little heart out but I am afraid I have to just focus on the Urban Craft Uprising I am doing in Seattle and just do as much as I can after that is over. Urban Craft Uprising is December 2nd and 3rd in the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall from 11am-5pm. The first 100 people in the door will get a FREE swag bag filled with goodies from the vendors. It's an Indie Craft extravaganza!!! I can not believe I even got in. I applied the last day and have never done one. So...I am sewing my heart out. Here is a peak at what I have been working on. All for now....off to be a Ma.

Sneak peak at my 2nd Supermaggie order.....

CATEGORY: | Monday, November 6, 2006

This is my 2nd
order. I couldn't be more happy with how they all turned out.
I adore them all
and it was actually hard to see them all go.
I just love Maggie & Michael though and they have been sooooooo incredibly nice to me. Anywho if you see anything you like they should be on their site
within the next 2 weeks.
I just sent them today.
They all come with a small
photo and a bio. I also used
Supermaggie felt on a lot of
them. I sent them 8 Walruses,
8 Bunnies and 4 Rhinos.
I love when things turn out.
