Back To Work


Hello Everyone~
I wanted to let you know 
that I am back to work~
although still on a light schedule.

The Etsy Shop is open 
and I am ready to pack orders! 
A click on the shop banner above will take you there 
~*~




Many have asked
 about the bunny in the Peat Pot~
and this is the pattern that I used. 



The body has to be cropped 
and adjusted to fit your pot.

How fun, right?

And you can always go through 
the shop and see what else would work~

like...


or


and if you just can't live 
without a touch 
of Halloween
A Pumpkin head would be fun! 


Use your imagination
 and let the pattern 
be a tool to let your
creativity 
and 
vision to shine through!

My New Hand


Well...new to me.
"Stacey Scissorhand"
and
"Frankenhand"
have been met with lots of giggles!

Tomorrow,
it will be a week.

Two procedures at the same time
has proven painful,
but it has gotten better each day.

Tim has been wonderful 
and beside me all the way~
he is a wonderful caregiver.



As the swelling goes down,
I am beginning to feel the difference.
I can't hold a pencil or 
silverware just yet...
and 
I giggle at 
my lack of coordination with
the mouse....
but I do see improvement.

 I had to stop by
and tell you 
THANK YOU!

The comment's, notes,
private messages 
and emails
are amazing.

It is true~

you never know,
 just how many people that you touch
on this big web.




And so,
 while I am not able to work, 
I have been working on 
some wedding plans ~
research...
and
making silly left handed sketches and notes...

My Imaginarium
is going full tilt 
with new concepts 
and techniques.

I can't wait 
to dive in!

A Little Time For Me


I wanted to let everyone know,
 that I am taking a little time away 
from the work
 that I love so much.

I have needed 
surgery for
quite a few years now,
and it is time.
(thank you Affordable Care Act!)
I will be having
 a couple of procedures done 
and I know 
that recuperation time, 
is supposed to take two weeks
for one of the procedures.

I have closed my Etsy Shop
until
March 11th
because, 
if you know me...
I am not one to keep idle.
I am sure that by then, 
I should be able to pack orders!

I am also sure that my Pinterest pins
will grow enormously....
and
my sketch journal 
will probably be full 
of wonky sketches,
as I don't always do so well
with Lefty.

But I am excited to get this done 
and move on.

I have so many characters coming to life
and some new ones ahead...
there are 2 new models of Sleepy Mice
and a new Ratty all stitched and ready to stuff.

It may look and sound like Spring 
is happening at the cottage~
but most of my new friends
 will have a Halloween flair to them.
Oh yes~ 
Sparrow Witches are happening!!!
