Friday Morning

And I want to roll back into bed until sometime Friday evening.  I think I’m going to blame it all on just being a tad bored.  I know I have things I need to finish getting done.  One of those getting more items shot for the shop, queuing up Tumblr for a few days, and I have a wrap that’s currently about halfway done that I want to finish, though mine might have a hood where the pattern doesn’t have one, just because I want a nice summer hoodie.  I fell in love with the pattern when I saw it in the book and it's been the bane of my existence for a month now.  I get a row or two in then work on some other things for a bit.  At the rate I'm going, should be done by next summer. 

I should make a few more bags for the shop too.  Because so far the people I’ve shown them to have loved them.  I want to look at a few craft shops around here too though that could possibly wait until the weekend when it’s supposed to rain, because I hate being stuck inside when it’s raining. 

Today I think is just going to be a blah day.  The Tumblr may just get a week of random stuff in queue so I can focus on the shop only.  Wouldn’t be the first time I pulled that.  I know I try to post one item in shop in it once a day, but out of items that I have photos of up.  I need to update the facebook  page too.  Oh, and need to make some of my mesh gloves too, next time I go on a yarn spree I should pick up more sock yarn, right now I have one skein of black, it’s a little easier to use than the lace yarn I used for the pair of fingerless gloves I use when driving.  But not everyone would want black gloves.  And the usual weight yarn I use is a bit too heavy for gloves to wear in the summer. 

And to help with the lack of pictures today, how about some reader interaction? 

What do you like to do when you're having a blah day?

Wednesday, March 21

I'm alive, I think.

Well I know I said I’d blog more often, got tied up in the shop, literally, I’m surrounded by a mountain of projects in various stages of incompleteness.  Though I think today I’m putting on shorts and taking the box of things we have made out to the yard for some shots.  Hopefully I can get some time to edit them and pop them up on-line.  Though I have to admit I think we need a bigger box, because right now we have about 100 items we need jewelry boxes for sending, and need to photograph, I’ve just been waiting for a few nice days where I can lie out on the lawn going trigger happy.

And rereading that last sentence, I sound like I’m psycho or something.  I’m going to blame it on my fondness for survival horror games okay?  Good. 

I’ll leave you today with the newest item up in the shop, just in time for Summer!  Bring on the slushie fruity drinks!  Bonus with the umbrellas okay, yeah it’s been one of those weeks, and it’s only Wednesday, and really I don’t drink that much! 
This necklace and earring set, made of pearls, shell and a brass finding, is great for the summer.

The pooka shells mixed with pieces of other shell and pearls just screams going to the beach or boardwalk. Pair it up with a tank and shorts to give a more classy look, or a simple black dress at night for a romantic walk in the sand.
