I think she's pretty cute! She'll be in my etsy shop pretty soon :) And you can read all of her details there... but I like her :)
I'm also pretty excited to announce that I got into baz biz again! WHOOT! It's a really fun event in San Mateo as part of Maker Faire. This is a MUST SEE event! If you've never been, it's just basically where all sort of cool, hip, urban people gather and show off their hacks (things they have made into other useful things!) Last year there were all kinds of cool things including a life size hamster wheel, that made a giant finger pick a giant nose when you ran in it... there were photography tricks, robots, a car completely covered in ink pens... you name it. Baz Biz is the crafty side of Maker Faire. There are workshops, classes, make and takes, sales. It's sooo fun, and it's a bigger even than you can even imagine... and yep... I get to vend there again. I'm a lucky girl I tell you.
And in other news! I've been tagged with the make my day award by 4 very sweet bloggers: Denise, Antoinette,Lisa, and Angelique. (Antoinette tagged me with the 7 random things about you one, but I'm lumping her in with this one cause she really does make my day! She's a super sweet fellow craft mafia member :) EDITED to add that I forgot Miss Trudy awarded me too! Which I can't believe I forgot because she is one of my biggest cheerleaders! If I'm having a bad day, I can read ANY email Trudy has EVER sent and feel better because she is so sweet! SORRY I FORGOT YOU FRIEND!!!
Thanks, ladies :) I'm still blushing! It really warms my heart when I see that someone has taken the time to blog about me or leave a comment here, so I am very thankful. And again, I'm just a lucky girl! Since I made someone else's day, I get to choose 5 girls that make my day! You know them already tho... I talk about them all the time. So here you go girls... you 5 make my day!
Have you met my past life? Back in 2000, I started making Raggedies and a whirl wind of a great time selling dolls and patterns all over the world from Little Missy Primitves.com. Over time, I slowed down because I was moving, having a second child, and just life in general. It's been a few years since I've realeased any new patterns, and I think it's finally time to close up shop for good (with a happy heart, or course :)
In order to go out with a bang, I'm having a HUGE pattern sale, where all of the PAPER patterns (I don't do e patterns :) I have left are only $3 each! So please stop by and check it out when you have a chance!
I put some pics up in my flickr and Tammie has some in her flickr too. The show was a lot of fun. It was mostly Sacramento Craft Mafia girls, and we really had a good time hanging out and sellin' our stuff! There were some real bunnies there and some Alpacas. There were spinning demos and looming demos. It really was a great show!
The first pic is of my little table (obviously...lol) and this last pic is of Daisy's baby quilt. It was hanging on display for the art show part of the show. I made the blocks while I was prego with Daisy and got frustrated with the assembly of it all. So mom to the rescue, of course... she always bails me out when I need her. So she added the pinwheels and crazy patch blocks and then of course the borders. At the time, 30's fabrics were my very favorite in the whole wide world, so that is what we used to compliment the little dollies and such! Don't forget to check out my flickr for more pics from the show!!
Because I don't have enough to do in life! LOL! Don't forget to come see me at Fibertastic this weekend on March 8th! Here's a link to more info from an earlier post.
I had to share this hilarious movie of me dancing with my kids. We are super fabulous, and obviously it runs in the family because not one of us is better than the other. And I have after all, tought them everything they know! And a big shout out to Rosie for sharing her version on her blog... so i could make my own version! WHOOT!
And YES... we have been working out, as you can tell from the movie... our arms are very buff... you can not do these dance moves if you don not take care of yourself. And that picture of my donut eatin' belly from the previous two posts... or when ever that was... ya... that's a thing of the past. LOL!
I promise to return to CRAFTY POSTS after Sat. I do have a show you know... in case you missed the first sentence of this post... so you KNOW I'll have some crafty pics from there!
