Did you miss me? 😉

I missed you 🙂

Forgive me internet, for I have been absent. It’s been…well…WAY too long since my last post. It’s not that I haven’t been doing anything, it’s more that I’ve been doing other things (I place A LOT of the blame on a little game called Dice Masters.) But I’ve been sharing them other places for now–like on Instagram. I had NO IDEA I would like Instagram. I hate having my picture taken so, generally in return, I’m not a picture taker. But then I started doing Kathy Racoosin’s 30 Day Coloring challenges at The Daily Marker, and uploading a daily little snapshot was the way to go. I also wanted to try a few new made-by-me challenges and those were also easier to do there because I could take a quick pic at a crop or something and post it with minimal editing and narrative.

However, I signed up to be in a small local craft fair with my mom which means “HOLY COW it’s been HOW LONG since I wrote a blog post ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod.” Yeah. And I want people that like what I make to be able to come and find an active online me. Someone at least as active as the real life me. And I need to focus and simplify so maybe this will help.


Here’s some pictures of pretty things I’m selling this weekend.

I made some sweet wood ornaments (or just cute decorations).

Meet Chester!

I don’t decorate much around the house. Since we don’t often have people over for the holidays, we don’t have kids, and we aren’t religious, then the whole decorating a bunch for Christmas is a little time consuming and we aren’t home much to enjoy it. BUT these adorable little canvases will work anywhere!

When starting to think about what I wanted to make for the show, I started making these little pendant rings..and then apparently I couldn’t stop. I’ve made A LOT of these. So please, if you’re in the area, come and buy one so that I can justify making more. That would really work well for me 🙂

Circle Beaded Handmade Pendants

There are SO many more where these came from.

So now I’m off to price and tag a few more things. I hope 3 things for the future:

  1. Be on here more consistently.
  2. Work on my follow through with planning and challenges.
  3. Focus on the things that I enjoy.

I think by working on all of these, they will naturally feed off each other in a wonderful creative cycle. See you soon!
