the holidays are...

so awesome! I can't wait to get a tree and burn candles that smell like peppermint!

black friday is coming and yes i have to work which sucks but i guess that keeps me from spending money i don't have.
what also sucks is that's the day the sanrio pop-up tour rolls into atlanta.
i wish  could get video of it rolling in but heck i'm just glad it's coming to atlanta. i will make it there with cash in hand and getting some cute things so don't worry about me! i will upload pictures and video so keep checking back.

i!'ll be adding more details soon so go ahead and add us on facebook or join the blog roll!

10 October 2010

working on a halloween giveaway...

for the blog. here's a peek, more details to come very soon! :)
 

an unpublished post from last year - neko neko...

yes, cats!
we went to a neko play place in tokyu hands by sunshine city.
it was called nekobukuro cat's house.



now i'm more of a dog person but my husband loves cats.
so this was for him more so than me but i did enjoy it!!!!!
i was worried it as going to be creepy and the cats would be in bad shape.
i couldn't be more wrong, these cats were well taken care of and there were rules set up for their protection.



also there was a worker there to watch as people played with the cats.
there were maybe 13 cats in about 3-4 rooms.



there were places to sit and a tv with cat videoplaying.

09 October 2010

i got it....

my spoon flower fabric and it came out great!
i can't wait to start making bags with it!!

07 October 2010

new plates and...

new items for the shop. part one, i picked up these plates yesterday for me and the hubby. they are super cool and i might have to buy two more to save.

now, part two...new items for the shop! i made some cute card cases/coin purses and a lovely wristlet.
i need to go back and get more of this wristlet fabric, it would make a great skirt.



now i'm off to be creative! :)

01 October 2010

crochet bows and pink toes...

is what i'm into right now. i'm looking into making crochet bows for the shop since i'm almost done with my super long black glitter scarf (pictures to come). to hold you over here are my pink toes, i just finished doing them!

update time....

so i have been super busy and working like mad in my shop.
it's paid off, sales are great and people have been super great!!! :)

i've had some commissions and started making some new things.
right now i'm obsessed with making phone charms.
working with the beads and charms are a real joy.
also some jewelry making added in there for variety has been a real pleasure too.
watch out sewing you have some competition.
i guess you could say i want to be the mistress of most if not all craft mediums.

i will try my hand at some decoden as well, looks like fun!

so here's what you've been waiting for my recent work, enjoy!

31 March 2010

such pretty...

flowers this past weekend.
me and the old man went to macon for the cherry blossom festival.
the trees were lovely and there was clear blue sky as far as the eye could see.



i got a lot of great pictures of the trees and the girls!









also my too sweet hubby won me a cute panda, i named him jerry.



it was really fun, we laid out our sailor moon blanket and played tic-tac-toe and checkers!
no need to tell you who one the most games...okay it was me! :)
i noticed we laid our blanket in a clover patch and it was lovely.



while i was on a hunt for a four-leaf clover i did one better and found a five-leaf clover!



as day went into night it was all neon and ice cream cones, i had sugar-free vanilla!





all-in-all it was a great day and i can't wait until next year!!!
