Interview up at Yellow Goat Design!!!!

CATEGORY: | Thursday, April 30, 2009

Hello friends...Petula of YellowGoatdesign.blogspot.com did an interview with me. She has an amazing blog and a super gorgeous Etsy shop. She asked me if I would be interested and I was thrilled. Anywho...I think it turned out really great and I love the photo mosaic she did for it...seen above...thanks so much Petula....if you want to learn more about me go to her blog straight away :)
In other news....I have been feeling very sick...no...not swine flu...my Sarcoidosis has flared up and I have also run myself down. Mr. Soren is teething again...tooth #12!!! Yikes....I am behind in my blogging/shop updates/flickr postings and well just about everything else except the kids and house work. I manage to stay on top of those things because well...I have to. So sorry to have fallen off the map but I think I am back. The other night I fell asleep on the couch at about 9pm and did not wake up until after 11pm...if you know me you know that is crazy. I had plans to sew and list and blog but my body said otherwise. Anywho, besides being totally freaked out about Swine/Pig whatever they are calling it flu...I am feeling much better. I was avoiding the news but they sent a letter home in the school paper, then they called last night to tell about a possible case in our hood...not our school but one that is very very close( it was an actual call warning us about Swine Flu and how to do your part to prevent getting it and or spreading it!!!)...and well...then this morning they talked about a case up North...a Pediatrician who had treated 22 patients and they are in the process of contacting them. So you see...I have my hand sanitizer, my masks and have given Memphis further lessons on the importance of washing her hands/hand sanitizing and trying not to touch her face...especially her nose and eyes but she is after all 7 years old....this is crazy and I for one am actually a bit freaked.
Soren is finally napping...his second bottom cuspid is coming in and the poor guy is in pain. So I must run a long and list a few Jacks I had promised to list and return emails and maybe rest...oh and iron...I almost forgot...
Happy Thursday....use your Hand sanitizer!!! :)

I just rec'd an email from Beatrice letting me know that I was featured on a blog called..etsy stalker....curated by Beatrice and Violet. I was and am so so so touched by it that while I was reading it I actually cried....weird I know but sometimes I feel so alone in my little Plush world/stay at home Ma existence. I have no co-workers...no boss...no lunch break...no travel to and fro so it's so amazing when somebody actually notices your existence and then on top of that likes what you do...and on top of that pays you such a HUGE compliment!!!....anywho....I just wanted to make sure and thank them right away. I really appreciate your kind words they made my day/week/month. I don't know why all of us creative types are so weird with our emotions but I guess it's what makes me...me....thank you so much Beatrice and Violet and Happy Bunny Day to you both!!! Go check out their blog....

Here is the mention.......:)

Look What I Can Do makes the most amazing plush rabbits in the history of plush rabbits. They bring plush rabbits to a whole new level. Take, for example, “Oar the Jack Rabbit Love Creature.”

He is most at home when out to sea. He loves Seagulls and lunches with them often. He has a wry sense of humor and it takes people off guard. He loves to bask in the sun and does so every chance he is awarded. He is very confident and also good under pressure. He takes life seriously when need be but knows how to relax and have fun. He says the key to a long and happy life is how you react to life and all that it brings to you. He is made out of vintage cotton, has wool felt details and safety eyes.

More Jack Rabbits have hopped into the shop and are waiting for their forever homes. I have a few more that will be in the shop by Monday....
Went on a play date yesterday. We went to the park and then to the Seattle Asian Art Museum. The current exhibit (Garden and Cosmos: The Royal Paintings of Jodhpur
January 29–April 26, 2009 )
is amazing and it was free ( it was free day)... if you have not seen it and can go....it's so amazing...we had a lot of fun. I left Soren home with Jason so it was a nice treat to be out with Memphis. I am still thinking about all the paintings. There were so many teeny tiny details in each one and so many glorious colors. It was also nice to be in the sun at the park. It's still cold here but it was nice to see the sunshine. Spring has definitely sprung....FINALLY!!! We have had a light dusting of snow here in Seattle 2 times this month. What is going on? So...today will be filled with more sewing and some cleaning time. I need to get organized so it is ripe time for a good ole' Spring Cleaning. Thanks for stopping by...I hope your day is filled with fun, love and relaxation.

Shop Update sometime today.............
