Looky Looky what I just picked up!

Prims Handcrafted Dolls Winter 2015 magazine. Love!

I'm so very excited. It feels SO FLIPPIN GOOD to get back into the sewing, the creating. It makes me so happy.

So simply happy.

I'm good at this. Yes, I am good at a LOT of things, but this really feels like where I'm supposed to be.

Seed Cataloges Are IN

Seed Catalogues are in.

After going through my seed stash from last year, I really REALLY don't need to buy any new seeds. Except for some Zucchini (how did I save ZERO seeds last year?) and also green pepper. I have TONNES of lettuce seeds, mesclun mix, beets... I have about 10 seeds each from about 5 different types of tomatoes. Lots left.

Provided all of them are viable. Which you just know they won't ALL be.

So, I should TOTALLY place an order.

Oh Hey January 2015

How are we 2 weeks in already?

I cleaned out the CRAFT CORNER OF DOOM, and reorganized it, so, like, I can actually access my sewing machine. I've got a few craft shows booked and THAT'S pretty  motivating to get back to work!

There's been a part of me that's been freaking out a bit (as I do EVERY year at this time.) that says "Hey, maybe you should get another job." Sigh. Because I'm going to find the time for THAT somewhere. (I'm part time at a Wellness Centre as a Reflexologist, I read tarot cards in the office as well as at parties, and I'm at a local thrift store part time.) I LOVE all of these things that I do. It's just that time of YEAR, when it's quiet all over.

Why is it THIS time of year I decide to go over my budget? Mental Self Flagelation.

So, it's NICE to lose myself in the making of monkeys and dolls. It's nice to completely ignore the dishes and laundry and housekeeping in general, and instead sew while episodes of Supernatural play in the backround. I love that show.

I have a show at the end of the month at the Huronia Museum in Midland, but I'm only reading cards there - no dolls or toys. Another show booked for the first day of spring. That's pretty exciting. And when I have enough stock, I'll get a table at one of the Farmers and Artisans markets going on locally.

I'd leave you a picture, but I currently cannot find my camera charger. Avoiding housework. ha!
