so much to do

Check out these reviews for acne treatments. I love reading reviews before purchasing. It's always good to know the most you can before you spend the money. This week is going to be very busy for me. Lots of good things, lots of "alright" things. It doesn't leave me much time to do crafting, but i'm sure i'll the time! I have quite a few things done for my shows, but I still have a lot to do!

Felted soap


Felted soap for sale!! During my craft shows this fall I will be selling felted soap. They are really great because you don't need a loofah or scrubbie or the like, because the felt on the soap does the scrubbing for you! They are quite handy and make great gifts! I will be busy this month making lots of these loving soaps!

so much!

I've been thinking a lot about Christmas. I'm so excited about getting gifts at craft shows and making stuff to give away. I already have a few things together, which is exciting. I think i'm going to get troy some industrial safety supplies . He needs to keep safe on the job. I know i can write about it on here because he doesn't read this! Ha~ I'm home this afternoon for a few hours but then I have to go back into work tonight. I needed a little break. I've been getting headaches a lot lately.

busy bee

Alright. It is official. I am going to be involved in FOUR craft shows this fall - maybe even five. I've been spending any extra time working on getting stuff made. I have quite a few earrings made now, i just have to keep working on other felted things. I'm having a lot of fun making felted balls as well. I just made some the other day with bells insides. They are really fun. I have to figure out how i'm going to set up everything as well. It shouldn't be that difficult. I think I am going to use a canvas type fabric and needle felt some designs on it. I think it will be cute!

car

I'm having trouble with my car again. I really do need to get it fixed by the winter though or I will in a lot of trouble once the snow starts to fall. I was thinking about buying a new car. But i'd rather not spend the money every month to have one. I'm trying to save for schooling and my future but it's difficult. Troy's always looking at new trucks and car accessories online but it's hard to save money when there are nice things to buy. haha. I swear i am NOT materialistic. It would just be nice to have nice things for once. :)

New and improved wooden pendants.


Alright. So it took me basically all summer. But I finally have my new pendants all figured out. I made some for the craft show i was in a few weekends ago, but I'm planning on make lots more for the craft shows i'll be in this fall. What do you think? I really like the natural look at them. I even left the bark on the edges to give it an organic look. Anyways. I'm not selling them online yet, but maybe soon! I am just focusing on craft shows for now :)

cabin!

I'm giving myself 2 years to save up for our cabin. Troy and I have been dreaming of layout and things to put in it. I'm excited because we received "hand me downs" from his sister and parents. We now have a fridge, oven, toilet and bathtub. We may also have a bunch of cupboards as well. So exciting! We'll need to invest in a lot of new things, if we can't find some reasonable used items, like faucets. Kohler faucets are very nice too. I'm excited, I just want time to pass very quickly. Even though i know that you shouldn't wish time away...

acorn earrings.


So excited. I started to make felted acorns for decorations. But I also started making this into earrings as well. Check out the photo! Aren't they adorable. I'm really excited about them. I will be selling these for $12 each. If you want one in a specific colour please contact me! I also have some felt balls made as well, i'll take a photo of those soon!

all that jazz

I am always curious to how people find out about my work, and my blog. I don't know if people get popular by going through paid web directory and the like. I am happy that people are out there and want to view my stuff though. I started a facebook group so people can join that too. I'm very excited about this fall and what it has to offer me.

what a great week!

Things have a funny way of coming together. I felt calm today. I went to a meeting today. We had workshops done by other resource centres. One of the workshops was how to cope with stress. She talked about aromatherapy and your "ora". She used dowsing rods to measure this woman's ora. It's hard to explain, but it was absolutely fascinating. She had this book there, "Heal Your Body" by Louise L. Hay. It's all about how mental/emotional thinking causes physical illness. I looked up some of my little aches (shoulder) and cuts on my fingers. It suggests that i'm worried and angry. They even give little affirmations after them. Is it strange to stand in the "self-help" section and read. :) Someone called that something. Book therapy? no that's not right. now that's going to bother me all night.

AND then i went to the park to find acorns, and i met up with "nature man" (i found out his real name today) and i fed some chipmunks and chickadee's; once even at the same time. It was magical. That made my week. :)

AND I went to PEI and visited my grandmother last weekend and it was SO great. I had such a great time and I think Troy did too. I even found some good deals. Work tomorrow then craft show on Saturday!

stash away

I happen to have cardboard moving boxes stashed away in my apartment. I don't know why. I always seem to collect strange things, then get mad at myself afterwords for being cluttery and junkie. I cleaned my art room the other day so i'm actually being productive lately. This is very exciting. I have quite a few pendants almost ready for sale. I have a lot to do to get ready for all the craft shows i'm doing this fall. Does everyone like my felt acorns from yesterdays' post? :)

felt acorns


Post #800! Wow that's pretty intense. I'm so excited for this fall. I am hopefully booked in for at least 4 craft shows! I'm very antsy. I just need to make sure I have LOADS to stock ! :) I have been very busy felting as well as re-creating my wooden pendants. I have actually started to create my own wooden pendants (not yucky bought ones). They are very sweet. I'll post a photo soon. I'm working on a bunch of different ones now. I'm going to do a lot of tree ones, don't worry :) I already have 2 tree ones painted. I have also been very busy felting soap as well as these sweet acorns. I am also waiting on some wool batting in the mail to do some balls for baby toys :) Exciting!
