We've Moved!

I think I finally have the website in a good spot and figured out how to do it myself. What a nightmare! I have to say that the last 7 months since I opened the shop I have barely been hanging by the skin of my teeth. I should have kept the website up better and been blogging more but Ive had a really hard time doing it all. I think at this point I have somethings figured out so I dont spread myself too thin and end up getting nothing done like I have been. So please update your links to which you will find HERE
Im working on uploading photos tonight and there should be more to look at in the next few days. Oh boy how I have missed you all!

Lots of things going on around here,the website disappeared and I had no idea and handed out tons of cards and flyers and then found it wasnt up,spent alot of hours putting it back together,it looked great and I checked before bed....GONE! So hopefully soon that will be done. But for now Paul has the new shop started for me and you can find it here We plan on adding new stuff everyday but for now its embroidery patterns. They are pdfs but I have actual printed patterns,if you are interested in the printed ones just let me know! Ok I need to get off of here and go pick up the kidlet from school. I will come back later with a flyer for where I will be this weekend...Mermaid Mercantile!

my theme song for the rest of 09

if you are feeling old this is perfect!

I feel like all of my posts should start out as sorry!!!

I think finally Iam to the point that I can catch up. I fell Saturday so Iam using this downtime to catch up and add photos to flickr,here,facebook and myspace.My plan is to list some of the things I have in the shop on the website so all of you who arent close to here can have a chance to purchase some of the amazing things Iam getting in. Iam so thankful to all of the artists who are bringing things to the shop and sending things in. I just love it!! Ilove having my own workspace and sometimes spend 10 hours a day creating away. Its also been a wonderful time for me to get closer with my daughters and Iam very thankful for that.
Here are a few pics,the rest are on flickr! I miss everyone,if you have the chance please come out,its beautiful!

Meet Miss Cherry,she lost her true love to a tragic pie what do we do now? Do we eat him? Oh but it looks so good......
Sorry this is a crappy photo,I was in a hurry this morning. She still needs some tears and work on her stem and Im trying to think of a good way to make a pie. Hopefully soon she will be done,Paul has another show this weekend and we have been a little busy with that.Otherwise all is well here I have art spouting out of me at least 9 hours a day lately. I cant wait to show it all to you... I have a ton of free patterns I want to get posted,I just need to scan them.... can you say procrastinate??

I'm so happy!, originally uploaded by noflickr.

I was just mopping my floor thinking how happy Iam and how much I love these days with the girls cleaning and listening to beatles with the house wide open (yay california) I was thinking about what my goal in being a mother has been for the last 20 some years and its this ...your sense of value should come from how you treat people, not what you have or how clean your house is but how you treat every living thing ... I think Ive accomplished that with my children and I hope they pass it on to their children. Iam thankful to my parents and grandparents for giving that to me. :)

Happy New Year and a shop update!

Hi everyone! How is your new year so far? Mine has been very busy. I spent the afternoon uploading a whole bunch of stuff to the shop,dolls,printed patterns,paintings ect. Im very excited about it. I dont know if you have seen the new issue of Stuffed or not but it is totally inspiring.
Tomarrow my daughters and I are leaving for a few days to see my mother and my sons.My oldest is flying in from D.C. and we are meeting up at my moms. Iam looking forward to it. Even though Im old now theres a comfort I get at my moms house that makes me feel like a kid again. You know what I mean? I will be back in a few days,if you get a chance check out the shop or flickr to see what I have been up to! xoxo
