I Want That!

I found this amazing print in the Treasury on Etsy!

I say this a lot, but this is definitely the first purchase I make after someone starts giving me a paycheck! Check out the rest of HamburgerPanda's cheeky illustrations! It's my new favorite shop!

I'll admit I'm not giving as much TLC to my Artfire shop as I am to Etsy, but even so I do enjoy it over there. I'm not an expert on the Artfire bells and whistles yet. It came easier to me on Etsy (who knows why). One thing I absolutely love is the one page listing process! It's so much faster than the 50,000 page Etsy version! Also, you can't beat the $7 flat rate over on Artfire! It's only for a limited time though! There are about 1,600 slots open and then the rate shoots back up to $20/month!

What's New?

I'm so excited about my newest line of necklaces! Who doesn't love a giant yarn wrapped bead?

Unicorn by B. Radley

I bought these huge wooden beads about a year ago with no clear plan of what to do with them. Even the checkout girl asked and I told her it was a secret, rather than admit it was just an impulse buy! After mulling and mulling I finally found the perfect use! Don't you love the colors? They are so much fun strung up on a longer chain!

Beach Blast (coming soon) by B. Radley

I also love that I've found another way to use up my explosion of a yarn stash!

Write a Letter

I'm flipping out! The people closest to me can back this one up. When I get angry about something I always say I'm going to write a letter. For example, one of the main arteries of my small town is aptly named Walker Rd. There is a small stretch of it that is heavily commercial and the speed limit is 25 mph. The residential part is 35 mph. Does this make sense? NO! I'm going to write a letter!!

I never do but just the threat of letter writing always calms the rage a bit.

Now to the good stuff! I've found a like minded chap who actually follows through!

Read it, love it, laugh, cry.

N*SYNC had it right...

So, unless you're living under a crafting rock, you've probably heard that Craft Magazine is going online only. They expect disappointment from their subscribers and they're right about that. (Although I'm not a subscriber...I foolishly pay full price at my local bookstore.)

There are times when I'd rather sit in a comfy chair and read rather than squint squint squint at the computer screen for another hour. *sigh* Yes, they can reach more people this way. Yes, it's "green". I want my paper!! I want to collect my little craft magazines, read them, put them on my bookshelf and then read them again three months later. Get to cuttin' down them trees!

I'll be better...

A Girl Can Never Have Too Many Bags

Grey Cotton Twill Multi-Purpose Bag by tippythai

Straight out of "The Land of Smiles", I bring you this lovely bag! I always assume The Land of Smiles is Portland, but upon further investigation it turns out to be Bangkok! (Add Bangkok to my list of smiley travel destinations)

All of my smart@ssery aside, I must say that this bag is most enjoyable! I am in desperate need of a new purse and this ranks quite high on the "purchases to be made once I get that reliable paycheck" list. Oh heaven, it's on sale too!

Artfire Love!

I just realized I haven't been showing enough love to Artfire! To show my sincerest apologies I plan on sharing and Artfire favorite every now and then (I'm horrible with scheadules, "every now and then" is a huge commitment for me). Let's get it started with Gulf Coast Cottage!


I really want to make this for my niece! She would get a kick out of it! Although I doubt I would be able to make it as well as Gulf Coast Cottage. I can dream, can't I?


It's a great price for such a cute pattern. She even offers a steal of a deal! B
uy three ultra cute patterns and get one free!

Drat that groundhog seeing his shadow!! What am I supposed to do with six more weeks of winter? I've had enough of blizzards and icy roads! Don't get me started on the sub-zero temperatures! Well, we're not speaking Mr. Phil...and don't expect any tonight either! I still love you in your magnet form from Pearson Maron. I've always wanted some of their work and perhaps if you buy this for me, I'll forgive you. I said perhaps!
