Acorn Earrings.


I have had a bit of practice felting since the fall. I have made quite a few different things, but I think my favourite thing to make are these felted acorn earrings. They are sweet to make AND wear! I am hopefully going to getting my work into some stores, so that will help me with some sales. I really want to focus on selling my work locally. I used to love selling it online, but local sales is what I would really like to focus on. I’m also trying to get a website made as well, waiting for that to get off the ground as well – hopefully before summertime :)

healthy me

I’ve been really proud of myself lately. I’ve been exercising lots and also tryinnnggg to eat healthy as well. Troy asked me if I wanted to go for ice cream last night and I really wanted to, but I made smoothies instead. I’m not on a diet and don’t plan on taking alli diet pills pills or anything, I just want to be healthy. I having been attending an exercise class as well. Well I have been to 2 so far, last weekend. I only have one yoga class left as well but I’m going to try and take another one in a couple weeks it will start.

skin your in?

I read an article this afternoon about a man who died from the flesh-eating disease. Things like that really give me the heebee-jeebees (is that how you spell it?) I luckily don't have any major skin problems like eczema or anything. I just have dry skin when the season's change. I'm not looking forward to the change into spring though, my eyes get SO itchy they will soon be driving me crazy!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! I didn't even wear green today - I forgot when I woke up this morning. Instead i have on white and grey - so colourful I know! :) Almost the weekend, I'm getting excited!

23!!!

So 6 days ago, last Wednesday which would be the 10th of March was.... my birthday! I turned 23. And when i told people that's what i was turning everyone always says, "oh your so young". I don't mind it as long as they don't say in a few years down the road, "oh your so old". I think that would be worse. So I'll enjoy this side of the flip-side for now. This picture was taken on the eve of my birthday. Troy and I went out for Chinese food then popped over to the SuperStore for a cake. When we got there we found this gem 50% off! I could not - not get it. My friend Caleigh called and came over shortly after that to share in the cheesecake fun. My sister on the weekend gave me a ticket to see the B52's this Friday! Very exciting!

oh the thoughts

Illnesses freak me out. I am always a wee bit paranoid that i have some sort of illness, just don't realize it. I don't dream up symptoms or anything, it's just a thought that's i the back of my head. Thoughts like these that create anxiety and won't let me sleep at night kind of thoughts. I always think of all the illness and diseases that are man made or created by the environment we live in. Like mesothelioma prognosis for example. Stuff like that freaks me out because you never know what kind of place you are in that may have that kind of stuff around. It's hard not to be ignorant about it. The vast majority don't seem to take note of the environment as a problem. In my opinion we are really polluting ourselves.

wedding crazy talk

Troy and I were talking again - well i was talking and troy was listening (mostly) about wedding stuff. Since we don't live with each other full time it would be silly to think about marriage right now and everything that goes along with it like, invitations, clothing, rings, etc. But I just can't help it. I was never one of those girls when we were younger who would fantasize about weddings, but sometimes I get obsessed and think about it a lot. I have it basically planned out in my head, which is exciting.

dear help

It's been a couple days since i posted last! Not a whole lot going on, trying to make some decisions, and if they are made, i'll post about them (hopefully sooner than later). Another week of work and it's going by fast, it's Tuesday evening already. My sister is gone to Newfoundland. She got accepted into a program where she'll be able to put her skills to work, she's almost done her dental hygiene program from a local university. Found this website about dental implants Mexico, it's crazy how Americans don't have insurance and travel other places to get health care. Canada is awesome for that - the fact that we have free health care. I wouldn't want to live somewhere that I had to go to the hospital but couldn't afford it. Thoughts anyone?
