Busy behind the scenes

I have been very busy lately – both at work, and working at home, behind the scenes, on my Etsy shop, which is ridiculously exciting.  Just checking in here, saying hi to heaven-knows-who, and I hope to share a very exciting development with you very soon!

Sick Day

Stayed home from work today after waking up feeling like I was on a dinghy in the middle of a stormy sea.  Blech.

Tied to the sofa, I was able to tweak the photos for some new items I listed this past weekend.  What do you think?  I am really having fun with Etsy.  It’s awesome!  I made my fifth sale this weekend, to my dear friend Scott, who purchased 2 sets of my crochet coasters.  The rainbow ones are my absolute favorite, and I am so strangely relieved and overjoyed that they’re going to be in the home of someone I love, and actually know.  Your package shipped this weekend Scott, you should be resting your beverages in style by the end of this week!

Hooray!

Why all the excitement, you ask?  My crochet coasters were featured in another Etsy Treasury today.  I’m not sure this treasury thing will ever stop being this thrilling.  Thank you so much JeraLunaDesigns!  Check out the fun collection below:

Dog Days Are Just Beginning

Florence and her Machine should write a song about that.

About to get into what is sure to be my busiest season yet at the day job, and I anticipate much less free time in my life, so before that happened, I thought it was time to get something launched I’ve been meaning to do for a long time:

My new Facebook Fanpage!

Wintry Mix

First of all.  “Wintry Mix” sounds like something dreamy, like the inside of a snow globe.  What’s happening outside is actually just cold rain, and is keeping me wrapped in this bathrobe and drinking coffee way longer than I should be.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate it, BUT, I’ve got to get to the supermarket.  I promised my “little” 28 year old brother cupcakes for his birthday party tonight.

Anyway…although I am really loving the way NY looks with all this snow (the beauty of it far outweighs the inconvenience), I find myself thinking of a sunnier time on the Island.  A deck in Greenport in the middle of August, with a fresh-brewed blueberry Keurig, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.  Barefoot.

Oh, and staring at this treasury from TheMayFlower (I love her shop!) isn’t helping to get me moving.  Doh!

Nice Ending to a Blah Day

Today was blah.   But then…

I got a wonderful notification from Shelley, proprietor of Sam’s Stuff (check out her shop on Etsy!) letting me know that she posted a treasury, “Lavender Fields,” and guess who’s got a featured item in it?  That’s right…this girl right here!  Check out the beautiful collection HERE or click over to the article on Handmadeology.

I am so excited.  I love making stuff, whether it’s good, bad, or ugly.  It’s therapeutic, it’s exciting to do something I’ve never done before, and when I can make something that I would have otherwise spent money on in a store, well, my heart just about sings.  But when someone else likes what you put your heart into just as much as you do, it’s even better.   I will fall asleep (under my own eye pillow) with a smile on my face tonight.

Here’s the little guy that cut the mustard 🙂
