Pitter Pattern!

Yahoo!!!!  I did it!!!!!  This is so exciting!!!!  And also, makes me totally nervous!!!

So, I have wanted to write a felt stitching pattern for ages.  Finally, this year I put it at the top of my new year's resolution list and wouldn't you know it...I did it!!!  This has been my secret little project for what seems like a really long time but it is now finished and I just posted it in my etsy shop here.  I hope and hope and hope that people like it and buy it and make their own little set of cheery veggies!
Whooo.  I think I can take the rest of the night off...

Oh Happy Day!

This is so exciting.  This is so exciting that I almost don't know how to put it into words.  Just a few years ago, this little gal was pouring over magazines, blogs, show guides, books, you name it.  Completely DUMB FOUNDED as to how anyone gets to be in there.  Or gets their work in a magazine or gets accepted to a show or gets to make a go at being an artist full time.  It was my one and only dream for my career.  I just had no idea how to do it.  But while I searched and learned and dreamed and hoped soaked in all that I could, I kept making and making and making.  And making more.  So I could write about 15 posts about this but I will just say that something happened recently that means the world to me.  If someone would have told me from a few years ago that my work would be featured in Niche magazine, I would have giggled.  And then passed out.

Thank you to everyone that thought my work would fit in to this feature.  And especially to Hope Daniels.  Please hop on over to for more info!

Happy, Happy, Happy Day....

Pretty Beads, All in a Row...


So...For those of you that have read my old blog many moons ago, jewelry making is something that I absolutely LOVE but every time I bust out the beads - everything that comes out is...Well...Not going to win any awards.  I always think that I just have to make things that I would love to wear and I just haven't been able to accomplish that.  I almost always prefer someone else's jewerly over my own.  BUT!  Hold the phone!!!!  I LOVE THESE!!!  And I MADE THEM!!!!!  Happy, happy girl.  I want to keep all three and wear them proudly.  I am only hoping that it is like working a muscle, the more that I make, the better that I will become and the more the jewelry will develope into what I have in my brain.  These will be for sale at the Ligonier Country Market this Saturday.  If you are local - please come on down and say hi!
PS!  If anyone sees these and wants to purchase, send me an email!  We can arrange that to happen and they are quite affordable in my opinion!
