Just Talking... about Blogging, Art, etc.

Posting is becoming such a thing of the past lately.  I am trying very hard to get my little shop of the ground but it's not an easy task.  I keep asking myself how to manage my family life with having a blog. Question of the hour I imagine.

I have been shopping like crazy for fabrics and then when they arrive at the door I don't know what to do with them.  I have made a few items and place them in the shop, but they don't seem to be getting the looks.  I love shopping for the cute fabrics, but there is a method to using them in projects to appeal to people. It is quite the learning process.  It's not easy. So I may have to make some changes.

Besides sewing I do paint with acrylics.  I have done a few a thoroughly enjoy it and I have to admit I am pretty good at it. Here is a few that I have done. More on the way.


I talk from the heart most of the time and you'll have to forgive if I sound emotional.  I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  Happy Crafting peeps.

Sewing Tip

Happy Tuesday,

Sewing tip #1 for those of you who sew:  Change your sewing machine needle often or you will end up with skipped stitches and not a good look for your projects. I suggest changing your needle about every eight hours or every project! 

It's short and sweet today! Happy Crafting Peeps.

I have Returned!

Happy Friday,

I apologize for the long absence.  I was sick for awhile and I am now back in the groove of things.  I fully admit that trying to keep a blog is quite the feat. 

 Don't get me wrong it's not that I haven't been doing anything in the way of sewing but I seem to be on a creative block.  I have made a few things for the shop, but because my mind constantly runs in several directions at once I can never be satisfied! There I said it.  I do believe that I have some form of ADHD, just my like youngest with Autism.  It's funny even with such things as body wash, I get bored with what I am using because I want use one that smells different.  Crazy I know, but I do have it under control but it took me 44 years to figure it out.  That's why my reading comprehension is about two minutes.

Well enough about my psychological health, on to creativity! Yay!  Take a look at a few things I have sewn for the shop.

 This is "pinky" my latest Little Hoot.  My goal was to get her done before the end of October for Breast Cancer Awareness,but that didn't happen.  That's okay, on to something else.

Shoulder snakes. These are made with long grain white rice.  Put them in the microwave for the ultimate in heat therapy.  Great for the boys, especially if they have sensory issues.  My youngest loves to play with these!

Now, since you all know that I like to do everything, my latest obsession is Zakka Life and all the cute(Kawaii) Japanese Fabrics.  I have some ordered from Etsy.com and will be making some cute stuff.  Stay tuned. 

I actually very addicted to all the cute Japanese prints.  These are just some of my favorites.
Now on to the last item to share.  I enjoy painting quite a bit and just last weekend I finished up an acrylic 24" x 30" painting.  I call it the "Quiet Coast."  It's currently gracing our living wall. More are in the works. 
I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend.  Happy crafting Pigeon Peeps.
