Terrible me

I have been a terrible blogger. Actually as of lately I've been a terrible crafter. In my defense, I've been waiting to get moved out of my parents house where I have the room and the peace and quiet to actually work. Once I get my sewing/craft room all set up I'll be back up and running. Shouldn't be much longer. The biggest problem with the house has been dealth with. It now has all new electrical and even lights and outlets where there weren't any before. Here's hoping I'm out in the next couple weeks.

School has just started and I'm excited to be going back healthy. I have been working on several projects since I came back from Florida but I've been neglecting my blog and I'm sorry for that. I'm in a 2D and 3D Fabrics design class. I'll be learning croceht, knitting, felting and basketry. Super excited. I'll update soon with more pics of the things I've been working on.

Finally Updated Etsy!

Woo! So, I finally updated my Etsy. I added the owls previously mentioned. They're named Popsicle and Momo. On the left in the pink and blue is Popsicle. On the right is Momo in green and brown. They turned out so well. My lovely boyfriend took the pics for me. He did a good job. The pics look greally great.

Still on the house hunt. Lame. I hate looking at houses. Especially in the summer. It's too hot.

I've been rather craft lately. I decorated a birdhouse in scrapbook paper and modpodge for my mother, created three Mario themed perler bead costers (fourth one to follow), taken lots of pictures (check my flickr), and I cross stitched a Pikachu. Picture to follow once I frame it. Personally I feel super creative these days. Though... there are so many things I want to try I'm not sure I'll ever have the time to do it all... lol I want to try some glass etching, play with polymer clay, and make resin beads/jewelry.
I'll be going to Florida with my oldest brother in a couple weeks. I'll probably spend the ride down cross stitching and maybe do some cross stitching on the beach as well. I'm excited. Can't wait!

I need to get a gallery going on here so people can look through all my projects. Hmm we'll see about that. Anyway, it's late. Off to bed. <3

Rain :(

Sadly it's raining so I haven't been able to go outside and take some good pics of the stuff I want to put on etsy but here's a crappy pic of my owls anyway.

A life update.

So here's what's up. I'm healing nicely though I still have one more hand to be fixed and one of my incisions from my gallbladder removal isn't doing too well. I'm keeping an eye on it. If it doesn't start looking better soon, I'll have to go to the doctor and see I can do. I've recently decided that cross stitch is awesome depending on the subject matter and that I simply must become good at it. I have finished two owls and a purse to sell on Etsy. Tomorrow I hope to try and get some good pictures of them and show you guys what I've been working on.

I've been asked to make curtains for my brother/sister-in-law and also I have to start on a pirate softie for a friend of mine who is having a baby. I've had tons of ideas lately and I've been sketching a lot.

Loverboy and I have been looking at houses lately. Lots of houses. We found one that, though out of our price range a tad bit, is perfect for us. It's four bedrooms, two full baths and an attached garage. It has a screened in porch and a POOL. It also has a fairly nice sized kitchen as well as a dining room, living room, and family room. In short, it's huge and perfect for us to start a family. We haven't put an offer on it yet. Still weighing the pros and cons and trying to make sure we can afford it before we jump in and buy it. Hopefully everything works out because I'm simply tired of looking at houses.

Pics of my projects tomorrow hopefully. Meanwhile feel free to check out my flickr.

And hey I have a follower! Thanks for following! :)

Since I haven't shared any pictures in a while I figured I'd share this one of my niece Lainey with the stuffed Koala I made her for Christmas. I'd tell you the koala's name but she changes it every time you ask her. haha Plus it's always a weird name. I think she has her own made up language or something. She's three, four in July.

Souvenir Giveaway

Souvenir Giveaway: "Use your imagination ;)"

The Owl Barn is having a pretty sweet give away. Lots of really cool stuff. I'd like to win. :)

An update on what's going on with me. I've had carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand about two weeks ago. I had the stitches out on monday so I can finally do stuff. Still difficult to grip anything tightly. Still needs to do some healing but overall its going well. Last week on Tuesday I had my gallbladder removed because it was believed by my doctor that it was what was causing me the abdominal pain. I still have to have my left hand done but I'm recovering well and feeling much better. I have been sewing on and off though right now I'm actually working on a purse to sell.

Anyway I'm going to go lay down. I'm exhausted.

I’m excited. On eBay I’ve found a sewing machine I want. It’s a Viking Husqvarna Model 6430 Heavy Duty Sewing Machine. I’m pretty stoked. I’m currently the only bidder with 2 days left to go. Cross your fingers and hope I get it.

In the meantime, I should be at work right now but I’m not because my gallbladder hates me. I woke up today and got in the shower. By the time I got out of the shower, I was in pretty good amount of pain. Obviously I stayed home from work. I’m calling my doctor tomorrow and telling him to move up my tests. I can’t wait until the 3rd of May to get this figured out. This needs done immediately. It’s getting worse.

Life loves me I tell you.
