Back to blog

I can't believe i didn't have anything to say last month at all!
Last weekend at the beach i got some great sunrise pics (on my other computer of course)
but here's a pretty one nonetheless.

Tropical Storm Fay

Is delaying the start of school
My daughter is bummed :( , but my son is gleeful :)

I'm choosing to believe that the sea turtles made it out before the storm.

** 8/22*apparently this is a live link to NWS, as this is not the pic that i posted... it shows the eye has moved away.

Still no baby turtles :(

We left the beach about a week ago.
I'm hoping they can hold on til the end of the month to hatch... of course they must hatch when i'm there with camera ready!

Monday, August 4, 2008

Rats, i was hoping it had been june 2 for the turtles, not July! That way, the hatching would be soon. Looks like we're going to miss it, as we only have another week down here :(

Sea Turtle Tracks July 2

This week was so exciting! A mama sea turtle laid eggs on the beach right in front of my parent's house. While i was not thrilled to be awakened so early, I was glad for the chance to get some great pics before the tide rolled in to cover the evidence.

Still at it with the sea creatures...

I am totally enthralled by the beach & summertime.
Nothing else seems important right now.

<- wish i had written the pattern down for this guy, as he is sold.

New Diet

But seriously, starting South Beach again... we shall see what happens.

New Obsession

With summer pretty much here (Florida), my new obsession is with sea creatures, especially the sea jellies.

This is the 2nd one, the first having been appropriated by my daughter (it was orange, she couldn't help herself).

Postal rate change May 2008

I have updated my personal cheat sheet to Postal rates for packages. It makes sense to me & here's hoping others can find it useful, too.

This is a screen shot, as i could not get a link to work. It's fairly readable if you click on it.

*missing info... in the pink area, it's supposed to say "Parcel post- zip dependent" & in the purple area, the weight limits & some pricing is missing... argh

Skull Flip Flops.
I couldn't wait til
I love the way the black fur creates a "low-lights" effect.

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Flip Flops are slowly taking over my etsy shop.
After Mother's Day, there should be a great influx of merchandise.

I impatiently await the arrival of animal eyes.. I did not have the correct size for this attempted hamster (thus his schnoz is too big too).

Granny Square Belt

I do love this belt. I've been making granny squares since 5th grade... that's a long time!

We survived Spring Break, now it's back to getting up early & homework- ugh!

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

I have a bunch of jewelry to list in my etsy shop, but today will be all about costume making. My son will be Jack in Jack in the Beanstalk, so I will be sewing knickers if i can find an acceptable fabric & pattern.

YAY, it's the weekend!

More painting in in store for me this weekend ..... I didn't get much cleaning done, due to a rapid HB scare... so kind of taking it easy.

Tried to Make a Website

I have no idea what i did, & fortunately someone helped me set up an URL with my shop name...
so my actual website which has a few redirects to my etsy shop is superficially up. Cool!

Another Sunny Sunday

Had a good day of clicking camellias.
Here are a few... more on my flickr pages.

My Crochet Jacket

I love this jacket! A couple years ago, I bought the Crochet a Day Calendar & this idea was the only thing that I found of interest in the whole 365 days of patterns in there!
It took me a long time (past the season to wear it) & some big buck$ of yarn (after all it was for me & not for resale- I'm worth it!).
I really enjoyed working on it- it feels so good, but it is VERY heavy!

hmmm... excessive use of exclamation points... perhaps a little too exuberant over this garment.

I'm still working on it.
Made the etsy mini smaller so it's not falling off the page.
Starting birdhouse gourds for the spring. Next will come flipflops & watering cans.

This was my favorite gourd... it sold at a show last year.

♪♫ Raindrops on.....♪♫


I had plans for taking tons of camellia pics @ Dad's yard today, but the battery exhausted.

More lovely pics on my flickr page, but you have to look past the beer cans

Sunny Sunday

It's a lovely day here in Florida. I should probably be doing yardwork. I'm simply too addicted to etsy & all things computer these days to get much accomplished.

I did finish the custom order of fingerless mitts last night... now to work on other things... Think Spring!

Added Flowers

Little by little I am figuring this place out.
Tonight I've added some flowers to my page. They may be a bit overpowering :) -Hello tiny ant

Found it!

It's been since October (4 months, whoa) since I created this blog... then I forgot about it... then I found it but couldn't sign in!
Guess I haven't had much to say.

Chugging along, I have managed to do well with the fingerless mitts in my Etsy store. Etsy does keep me rather busy.... now to figure out how to get the etsy mini over here....

My daughter is now blogging at school, so I figure I'd better catch up.

OK, got it!
Look down at the bottom of page for the Etsy Mini ( a small sample from my shop). How cool is that! The items are even clickable! I'm psyched! (Can you tell?)
