Holiday Bustle, and SHOWS!

Its crunch time kids, less than 20 days to Christmas, am I ready for this? Not in the slightest!

A recap of November! Sales have been steady and crazy at i like you- (yay!). We had our annual holiday ornament show, and I made yarn ball ornaments for your knitty friends, and yarn kitties. OMG the cutest cat faces ever. Each one is special in its own way, and the faces… I mean purrsonality. Seriously, one of the funnest gifts I have ever made. I got to send one out to Colorado and one to Michigan through my etsy! My mission for tomorrow, make all the yarn kitties…. all of them! Army of Yarn Kitties!!!


I have two shows this week. Art and Soul is Dec. 11th 4-9pm (6-9pm Adults only for opening party) I am planning on bringing my wheel for some demo time.
Dec. 12th 4-9pm Also bringing wheel, dependent on customer traffic on demo time.
Dec. 13th 12-5pm

I will have my gear there all three days but will only be able to attend the first two, B will be covering my booth on Saturday (12/13) since I had previously committed to another show at CoExhibitions from 10-6. If you are in town, please stop by one or both of them, I will have different items at both since I will be having 2 booths simultaneously, and the artists I get to sell with are really fabulous at both locations, I dont know which one I am more excited for! I am trying to keep it all together, I need sleep but I want to keep making all the fun things!

I still have no idea what I would like for Christmas, I keep asking B, hoping he will get me to think about something I would really really like, but I am kinda at a loss. I have been blessed this year with a whole new attitude, a new job that I love, a new creative side, I have no real needs. So this year’s Christmas will be just icing on the cake. 2015 is going to be even more amazing than 2014. AMAZINGER. yes, I said it.


New year, new possibilities!

Wow, January is sure flying by! I have been a bit more quiet as of late, I can’t keep up with it all. Work, friends, home projects. My work life is still continuing busy. I like being busy, if you arent busy, you get bored. I finalized a demo schedule for my staff to work on and I have 2 (yes 2!) demos in February. Inktense IS on that schedule, so get excited. I sure am! I think for March I will be doing some more on Acrylics again, getting back to my roots. Either way, I am pumped for teaching!

The home is ever changing, got new carpet in the office, where I am writing this note, and downstairs in the basement. I haven’t spent much time downstairs since the flooding in June, it was pretty sad and in disarray. Now, I have new carpet, and shelving. And decorating… oh the decorating! Next will be paint!

A little sample of my decorating talents. 🙂 IMG_1112


Like all new things they take time, so I am trying to be patient. Because patience makes awesome.

Oh yes, speaking of new!!! I bought my computer! I am now typing on Jazz, my new iMac. For those of you who do not know, Jazz is a type of apple… 🙂 I can be clever every now and then.



Having a real Saturday off and not having to do anything really confuses my body. I want to sleep all day and stay up til weird hours doing nothing like reading about celebrities. Yup, I can be that person. I was determined to get some etsy work done. I was pleasantly surprised that my new computer has a nice photo editing software, and was mildly easy to manipulate and size. Then comes the descriptions…  I so far have 7 posts completed. I will call that one a WIN.

Check out some of the pretties I posted today!

I am still plugging along on my bobble stitch scarf, its getting long!!! I am regretting not weaving in the ends as I change colors, for a couple reasons, one, it looks messy, people see it as I work on it and go, “ooh whats that?” and then see it and kinda step away in horror. 2) finishing the piece will be that much harder because when I am done, I am done. Taking the extra time to frame something or put a coat of varnish on (something I ALWAYS do by the way) I hate it, well, no I should revise that statement, I do not take enjoyment in doing it. It feels very chore-y and annoying. Maybe I can work on that.

Anyways, keeping on! Thanks for reading
