A little 'bout my Etsy site and a little 'bout my life!

It’s been a while… October 2, 2010

Hey all…it’s been a while for sure!!  🙂  I have been a busy, BUSY chica!!  Sooo, what’s kept me posting??  Well, business has been good, I’ve had tests and projects due at school, was sick for a spell, AND I was the Matron of Honor/wedding coordinator of my bestie’s wedding!!  Whew…I get tired again just thinking of all of it again.  LOL

PLUS, I have been super busy at work in my studio and as always, you get to see what’s been cookin’ FIRST!

All of the pictures except the last two photos are some on my newest Christmas goodies.  What do you think?  The last two photos are a new alphabet die cut series that will be listed in my shop soon AND my color options for die cuts.  🙂  Please let me know if you have any questions!!

  • Flowers are 1″ each.
  • Foam striped stockings are 2 1/2″ long by 1″ wide.
  • Foam polka-dot stockings are1 1/2″ long by 3/4″ wide.

LOOOOOOOOONG time, no see!! February 20, 2009

Hello all!!

Wanted to make a quick check-in post.  Life has been so super-crazy busy for me lately that I don’t even check my email but once or twice a week.  My workload at my “REAL” job has been severely increased and I am walking like you wouldn’t believe. 

I’ ve been through many a cast, walking casts,  a contraption, splints, two wheelchairs, a walker, crutches, and a cane – all in about two years’ time.  I am currently in a walking boot and am about to transition into a brace.  While for now it has been stated that I will wear the brace for “lifetime”, I am also in physical therapy to try to gain some strength in my weak little leg, as well as increase motion and flexibility in my foot/ankle.  I have hopes that I can get even better.  If so, I’ll be able to lose the brace even!!

I don’t get down too easily.  I mean, come on – I was told by THREE (count them, three) doctors that I should amputate from the knee down.  Did I listen? 

HELL NO!!

LOL  Imagine if I had!!!!  Have I struggled?  You bet, but I am better now and better for it! 

So that is THAT update!!!  LOL

About Etsy….as of now, I still am maintaining my shop in Vacation Mode.  Once things at work slow down and I am having to attensd physical therapy less, I will be back.  AND I WILL BE BACK….I definitely miss it!!! 

Please feel free to leave comments.  I miss everyone and would love to hear from you!!  🙂

WOW-de-dow!!  I know this sounds silly, but I am so excited about this!!  I now have THREE pages worth of items in my shop at one time!!  I don’t know why it’s been that I haven’t been able to keep more than two pages worth of product in my Etsy shop at any one time – sell it quickly or not productive enough…who knows???  I’ve been doing some FALL cleaning in my studio lately and have come across so many things that I know that I won’t use and most of it are things that have NEVER been opened.  I’m trying to not waste as much so I thought I might as well try to see if someone else might need it!!!  🙂  Plus, since I’m obviously at home more with my broken leg, I’ve been busy making all kinds of things.  Here are some pics for you!  Some of this is in my shop already and some of it will be added later today or tomorrow.  🙂
