Introducing a New Line...

I am introducing a new line of magnets to my shop. I'm very proud of them, and they are SO much fun to make. I added my first magnet listing today in my shop!


RIP Rocky


Rocky "Broccoli"

March 23rd 2008

12 years old

Words simply cannot describe the heartache I feel over my dogs passing. It was sudden and traumatizing. This picture was taken on his last day alive. I am so glad that we got to enjoy an absolutely beautiful day at the park with him. The weather was perfect, he loved the fresh air, we had a wonderful picnic. It was so lovely, and I'm glad we were able to make his last day special. I miss him so much. I've had him since I was about 9 years old. Without him the apartment feels so empty and eerily quiet. I miss seeing him lying around. After having him since childhood, it feels so strange to not have him here.

Well, Rocky baby, I hope you're enjoying doggy heaven and I am glad you're free of pain and suffering. I love you.


New Project

I'm starting work on a new project. I'm super excited about it! My wonderful mom bought me some craft supplies as an Easter gift! It felt like Christmas. I began working on pretty things right away!

I'm experimenting with wood tiles, papers, epoxy resin, pretty glass beads, you name it. I made my first batch today...just waiting on them to dry.


Vacation Time!

I'm on vacation!

Well...sort of. I'm still working- just from my Mom's house in South Carolina instead of my place in California. My trip here was an absolute nightmare! I am NEVER flying with Northwest airlines again. Period. I was supposed to arrive in Charlotte, NC on a Friday and didn't get there until Saturday at around 1:30 PM. My luggage was left somewhere in Minneapolis so by the time we got that all figured out we left the airport at 2:00 PM.

My babyshower was at 3 PM in Columbia, SC. Yeah, we had JUST enough time to get to the shower straight from the airport. I was wearing the same stinky clothes I had from Friday morning, same makeup, everything thanks to getting stuck in Minneapolis. It sucked. So I looked and felt like crap after no sleep and no shower.

Out of the 35 people invited to my shower 7 showed up. It hurt my feelings a lot, but I still had a lot of fun. The guests that DID show up were lots of fun and very generous. I got tons of wonderful gifts from everyone.

I also started listing some of my pastel artwork in my Etsy shop. Sales are sluggish at best. I'm just waiting for the day that I can buy all my materials to begin making my pendants, magnets, and containers. Save, save, save. Hopefully things will fall into place soon!
