Gather ’round folks, I have an announcement!

I am now a distributor of Athena’s Home Novelties!

Everyone go run and look at my web page! Except for Swapna, you have a delicate nature, don’t want to shock you! ( you can look if you want, but be warned)

Gotta say the spa products rock….

On another note I set a goal to make 5 bracelets today to post on Etsy. And guess what! I actually made them and nearly done with number 6. YAY me!!!

Also for you wishlisters, I have printed out the list that have been posted and will be shopping when time allows or for when I come across something awesome. BTW, I need you girls address, please.

Be well y’all!

Update: I’ve now completed seven bracelets, one necklace and one pair of earrings. WOOT! Swapna, I am on now (obviously) but haven’t been online much. Just doing a quick e-mail check before bed. But I do hope to be on in the morrow.  The evening time.

Holy FOs Batman!

So anyone wondering how in the world I am about to post days in a row? Sure I know everyone in their mother is curious, HA!

Did I quit my job?


Did I become violently ill and on medical leave, or possibly lapsed more in to insanity had to take a mental health leave?

Nope again!

Did I have PLH I had to take with pay or lose them?

YES, baby thats it!

Gawd, I love mini-vacations! 5 days of decluttering and creating and crap and stuff!

Okay, I only have like 2 full days left but hello……………..I have FOs!

Seven pairs of earrings, one necklace thus far!

Oh AND I totally made my first matchbox, decorated and everything. I must admit although I think it’s cute I don’t get them. Oh well, I can at least say I’ve made one. I guess thats an accomplishment! YEAH me!!!!

Pictures to follow tomorrow, check ’em out on Flickr!

So if we do this wishlist blog, what shall be it’s name?

Off to lay about like a large well fed lizard, except I ain’t scale-y and only the ex calls me cold blooded.

Be well y’all!

Yes, I’m talking to whoever might be reading. Just because there are two posts this week doesn’t mean I’ve returned to the land of the living. Okay, well I am in purgatory, internet limbo. Sorta here, but not. I think. OY! Too deep for this afternoon.

But on with the meat…..Sink your teef into these pics, FOs!!! Who don’t love FOs?

A smallish bag felted with Patons Classic Merino Wool, loverly, me likes me some green.

A flurite and silver crochet necklace.

Next is a black copper wire with black czeck glass beads crocheted to make a snazzy bracelet.

I finished another necklace I will post later, it’s my fave so far, so ya know I gotta share.

And in celebration of my new found love for wire crochet, I started a flickr group for wire crochet, in hindsight I shoulda put wire crochet and knit. Not much activity is require, heck I belong to some flickr groups just so I can see the pics when I feel like it. The great thing is I’m not really required to do much admin-ing as I am not on the PC as much anymore, this is a good thing. If the linky no worky then just do a search for “wire crochet”.

I added some acrylic yarns to eBay. Adding more tonight and tomorrow, some olefin chenille and other stuff. I also found some trims I think I cna part with and live. So watch for those if you’re interested in the next week or so. If the link doesnt work, just search for user: Travelinfoot .

I wanted to take a minute to thank Deneen, who is fabulous beyond words. She saw my eBaying efforts and took the time to e-mail me with very helpful tips. I appreciate it so very much. So thanks a ton Deneen you totally rock!

And also Swapna needs a big old thank you, she sent a wonderful book called “The Adventures Of Tintin” I think the old man was slighty, although it be only a tad, more tickled than I was as he used to watched Tintin on HBO (I think he said) pre-wifey.

One last thing and I promise to release you from my grating voice, okay you can’t actually hear it but I know you can imagine it if you try. On my pages thingy at the top on the right hand corner of my blog I made a list called “ISO”….this list is not a great show of my beggerity (is that a word?, if not, now it is) but of things I am in search of and if one wishes to rid themselves of something I want, I will be willing to pay or barter.

Danke and be well!

Remember this? I decided to just work on this list for a while. I am trying to reach a goal and so this means less PC time, forum time, and limited e-mailing time. Such is life.

Anyhoo, here are some pics of items I finished off my list. More to come.

Beaded metal bookmark, glass bead bracelet, fullsize batik rag quilt, and the back of the quilt.

Thanx for looking!

Chugga, chugga!

Alrighty folks I made a snazzy copper wire bracelet tonight and a funky scarf. I have a pic of the bracelet, who the heck hasn't seen enough scarves, ya know?

Anyhoo, the bracelet is made of copper wire, Czech glass beads and I used a Clover Soft Touch "H" hook.  I really like it and hope to make many more. I like wire crochet MUCH better with a larger hook.


Tomorrow I gotta go do something that is making my stomach do flip-flops…..I hope to be online to visit my haunts but, probably won't, who knows……I keep looking for reasons NOT to go….but I can't even come up with a good enough excuse to tell me. Anyway, good thoughts people…I am so gonna need them.
