So this picture is kind of creepy but I wanted to share it anyways. I'm not sure what this little guy is. A mole maybe? Do you know???

I let my dog outside the other day and she managed to find this little guy. Unfortunately my dog squished it a bit and he died. Kind of sad I guess...


I bounce around from one craft to another and lately I have been crocheting a lot. I decided to try and sell some of my crocheted items at the first craft show I did a few weeks ago and I actually sold more crocheted items than leather items. It may be because it was overall priced cheaper but it made me wonder if I should continue to crochet and sell stuff online and at more craft shows.

 Today I was dreadfully bored and uninspired and I just started crocheting. I didn't know what I was making but just crocheted along. I ended up with something I think turned out pretty cute. It's a little clutch purse (see above picts). I recently got a book out from the library called Beginner's Guide to Crewel Embroidery and did a little of it on the clutch. Expect to see more Crewel Embroidery from me in the future. It's fun and looks pretty. What an awful name though!

I love making stuff and I even like a lot of the things I make. I say that because I usually hate everything I draw or paint but I genuinely like most of the leather stuff and crocheted stuff I do. I guess I make what I would want to buy. However I am too cheap to pay my prices for myself but a girl has got to make some money somehow right? It worries me though. We are all so use to buying machine made junk-a-roo from walmart and everywhere else that people often get all bent out of shape when they see the price tags on handmade stuff. At the last craft show I did a lady picked up one of my leather cuffs and asked "where do you buy these from?" I was sort of confused. I told her I made them and she was like "wow!". Handmade items take time. Usually more time than a normal person would even consider spending on such an item. Anyways-I am getting tired...

Good night! Come see me at the craft show tomorrow!

craft show!

This is SOOOO last minute but I just got a call from a friend who has extra space in her craft booth and asked if I wanted to sell my stuff tomorrow. Come see me if you are in the area.

I have been dying to have some new music. BUT-I am cheap and spending actual money on music just doesn't appeal to me like it did when I was 17. I decided to take the risk and rummage through the stacks of cd's at the thrift store a few days ago. It's funny to see what people give away and it makes me chuckle to think what type of person might have owned some of the music before it got to where it is. I found one cd and bought it. Paula Cole-This Fire 2.99. Some of her songs were REALLY popular back in the day. The one song was the theme song for Dawson's Creek (my favorite show of all time!). Listening to it transports me back to high school but without all the high school drama.I am really enjoying it. There is one song that has become my favorite called Me.Watch it here on youtube.

Shop Update

I know I haven't posted in a LONG while! Does anyone even still read this???
In case there is someone out there that does-here are a few new items I just added to my store. I have a bunch more that need to be added. Those should be coming soon so check back.

I may be selling a few items this Saturday at a craft show. I am signed up for another November 13th and am thinking about doing one in December too. When I get more details I will share them here. Come see me if you are close by. I have a lot of things that will probably never make it in to my shop but will be for sale at the craft shows. Lots of unique earrings and crocheted items as well.

Craft Show

Hello everyone!
I just wanted to give you the details of the craft show I will have a table at in a few days.
It's an event called the French Market and it's basically a place you can come and do some awesome handmade shopping. The money the sellers paid for the table goes towards overseas missions. There will be coffee and snacks and plenty of awesome gifts. INCLUDING my awesome mom who makes really pretty Christmas decorations like wreaths.

It's this Friday October 8th from 4-9pm. Bring cash or checks. It's located at Fellowship Bible Church in their Back Barn building. Looks like a barn only cooler.
The address is:
1210 Franklin Rd.

I have been making all kinds of special things for this show including several crocheted items as well as some really neat earrings with leather charms on them.

See you there!
