I've been crafting like a fiend the last few weeks and am really looking forward to my first craft sale in Aylmer next weekend (September 10th if you're in the area- more info to come).
In my crafting frenzy I've rediscovered my favourite holiday ornament -customizable snow-people! I've been making a bunch of them and crocheting them each little mini toques to keep them warm. I've also been working on some stockings AND rediscovered how much fun it is to make chocolate suckers. mmmmmmm...
I survived another successful navigation of the sun on the 30th and spent the day sewing some new dolls and the evening eating thai food with my little family here.
I've made a number of little dollies and feel like I'm figuring out some changes to my pattern. I had a lot of fun making a doll in the image of my partner and another run the image of an old friend; I think they turned out pretty well.
I've also been working on some new Boogedy Shoos and have been having fun playing with them - there's big ones and little ones and orange ones and purple ones! They're everywhere :)
Now that I'm taking a few minutes to write a post I'm realizing just how busy I've been over the last little while. On top of all this crafting goodness I've also been working on a new website. My poor old computer has been very sick and has been really struggling the last two weeks...soooo I got myself a new laptop, which just arrived today! I'm excited to have it, but there's a bit of a learning curve from my old one (2006) to the new model. Hoping to have my new site up soon and then take some time to work on some tutorials that I've been thinking about for awhile and would like to post.
I'm learning so much every day and am amazed at how much time is involved in getting a wee shop like this up and running from scratch. If anyone out there has any tips, please pass them my way.
Have a great day!
