new etsy items

hello - sorry blogging has been so sporadic!  

been busy doing lots of stuff - like making new embroidered hoop designs to list in my etsy shop…

hope all is well with whoever stumbles along here :)

p.s. if you were following me on instagram you may need to change to my other account…I've combined my personal & blog one into just one to make things easier.  the one on the sidebar over there is the new one if you'd like to see what I'm up to.

guess what?

I'm doing my first craft show ever!  

if you're in the Kansas City area I hope you'll stop by and say hi :)

more than 100 Hallmark employees will display and offer their personal artwork for sale.  a wide array of artwork will be available including textiles, children's tents, sculptures, art quilts, jewelry, oil and watercolor paintings, and photography.  these pieces are the personal work of the participants, created outside of their jobs with Hallmark.

admission is free
and free parking is available in the crown center parking garages 
(the one on the east side of grand is the closest to the square)

in addition there will be live music by anchovy fisherman from 11-3 and food/drink/bathrooms are
easily accessible at panera or in crown center for your convenience.

time flies!

time does indeed fly…it's been awhile since I posted & oddly enough it coincided with a change of role in my full time job, funny how that worked!

actually not that funny…it was a bumpy initial transition but it's gotten better recently so I'm hopefully that I'll be back to blogging a bit more in the near future.

in the moments I did have to get something done I managed to work on some new items for the shop & I'm happy to announce they're now available...

the last one is a customizable variation on my paint by number hoops that I think might be a nice wedding or anniversary gift…I'm curious to see how it's received.

well that's all I've got…hope anyone still out there reading this is doing well & that you have a lovely day :)

…can't wait for it to be warm enough again outside for kid's birthday parties in the park like the one my little friend Luca had & where I took this photo back last summer.

tick tock thrifted clock

oh…I accidentally rhymed!

(thrifted this last spring during my blogging hiatus - it hangs in my work cubicle now & ironically enough ticks very loudly :)
