Hello! It's Sunday and I am sitting here watching What's Eating Gilbert Grape. I LOVE this movie but it's totally sad when the mom dies! ugh i hate that part. they set the house on fire. ugh...

My husband is out of town this weekend visiting his family in Branson. My mom came to visit me Thursday-Saturday. We had a fun time cooking, shopping, watching movies, and just chatting. But today-I am on my own. I worked on some leather items this morning. I posted a really neat peacock feather cuff and also a medium sized purse that also has a feather on it in my store today.

well-I hope you all are having a nice weekend. I think i am going to pop a few cookies in the oven.

                           till next time.

I seem to have a weird chronic rib issue and because of that I have to limit my exercise a bit.

It's been really bothering me this week and so I have hardly moved my body at all. I was starting to feel pretty stiff (pounding holes into leather with a hammer doesn't help either) so I thought I should do some stretching. I found this yoga video on youtube this morning and did it before I came into work. It was fun and I really did feel better when I was done.

Don't you just love technology sometimes?

I hope you all are having a nice Tuesday.

UPDATE on Leather Stuff:

I have spent the past week or two working on a large bag and now a smaller version of the same bag. One of them will make it into the shop. The other will dangle from my arm. ;) that is if i don't destroy it by punching a bazillion holes and hammering in just as many rivets into the leather. Carpal Tunnel setting in :(

Photos From Grandma's Farm

I recently took a trip to WV for a family reunion. I got to spend the day at my grandma's farm. I love walking around the property because it's so beautiful out there.

Travels and Lattes


Sorry I have been M.I.A. for a little while. I have been BUSY(you probably saw that in my last post but it continues). I traveled to WV for about a week to attend my family reunion. I did lots of chatting, shopping, a smidge of volleyball playing, and rocking on my grandmother's rocking chair. It was a fun time with the fam.

Since I have been back I have been busy working on a really awesome purse/bag for myself. I rarely make something for myself and decided to go all out and make it exactly how I want it. It is taking a REALLY long time to put this baby together and I have many a sore fingers from all the hammering and hole punching involved. Photos soon.

Last night I met up with two other Etsy ctafters in my town. Sarah from Flowers that Rock and Megan from Kaleidoscopic Crafts. Both are super sweet talented gals with really great items in their shops. Check them out! We chatted over iced chai tea lattes and had a really fun time. We plan on getting together more regularly and seeing what crafts we can get into.

Happy Thursday!
