It’s Hump Day

6 May

Can you hear that camel proclaiming the day? There truly are advertising geniuses out there. How many jingles can you hum or sing? How many ad quotes pepper your thoughts or speech? Oh yeah…geniuses.

I’m not one.

There is a lovely cardinal hovering around the window outside my workroom. He was perched on the fence when I first noticed him. Ah, Spring has sprung and the temps are hovering in the eighties this week. Time to consider opening the pool. The water will slowly warm and eventually we can spend an evening or two enjoying the stars.

Nights would be best. Either that or a full body suit for me. Either one would hide the many imperfections! Hehe…who cares? Every wrinkle and imperfection has been earned I think.

Today I’m posting again to my Etsy shop. Here’s the offering. Let me know what you think…or go shopping here!

4 x 6 Photo swapping frame. Rustic, country style, embellished with cotton florals.

May Day and The Sun is Shining

1 May

Good day! May 1st finds me still unemployed and energetically, well as energetically as possible for a woman of a certain age, in pursuit of a dream. That being creating a living without a job.

There is much to learn.

Today’s Etsy finds in aFrameJob follow. I hope you like them and would so appreciate some honest feedback. If you’re seeing them posted all over the place, please forgive me. I’m trying to increase visibility. You can help! Just share my postings. And thank you in advance.

Tomorrow I will participate in the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub Mini Maker Faire. My booth can be found in Craft World. Must say, this is beyond exciting. All the markets, fairs, festivals, events…get us out and about and meeting and greeting. Hopping about may be a great introduction to new places and spaces in Arkansas.

So here’s to May Day, also a Friday. Hope yours is splendid!

Farmhouse fancy, shabby or cottage chic, rustic, Southwestern...here's an eclectic bit of home decor for framing the moments of your life.

Ah yes. Three in four days. I really have to do something about my awful photos!

Dear daughter:

I needs help with pictures.

Love,

Mom

She and the grand visited for dinner tonight! Such a joy. We’re hanging out a couple of days next week. Oh yeah! Can’t wait.

 

 

 

Pins, Profits, and Getting Started

17 Mar

Today, I began the adventure…well actually the adventure started a very long time ago. Lots of preparation and a split in the space-time continuum and here I am,  finally making the first photo display board post to my Etsy shop.

There will be more!

Since I am currently unemployed (again!), this seems a good use of time and energy. I must remember to use a mask in the barn however, for once again I am also suffering a sinus infection. A week of it has almost done for me.

Reminds me of Wally Lamb’s novel, She Has Come Undone. Great book. Consider it for your next read.

And so onto tomorrow. It is another day and another board. Here’s hoping for one a day. That’s imposing for one such as myself.

But who knows?

If you know someone who loves the rustic, sorta shabby look and looks kindly upon recycling endeavors, please send them my way. I’m here!

I Love Yarn

12 Oct

There is another tutorial going up tomorrow. Here’s a peek:

Picture Perfect Card Carry

This frame is strung with wire and ribbon for easy pinning of  your holiday cards and photos . It was easy to complete and didn’t require much shopping. The items required were mostly on hand.  Two completed.   Tutorial tomorrow.

Today is ‘I Love Yarn Day’ according the Craft Yarn Council. My friend Sarah apprised me of the occasion. I bought three skeins of yarn for two hats and a scarf this morning. It wasn’t on my shopping list. I wasn’t thinking of the occasion.  I just love yarn. I have yarn everywhere. The small attic is full of yarn. There are projects packed in bags all over the craft cave. And every time I pass a yarn shop I have to back up and go in to check out the pretty fibers and colors and textures, and take a skein of something delightful home to my stash. I love to check out the local shops when we travel around the region.

Check out I Love Yarn Day at the Craft Yarn Council site. Way cool. I love the celebrant’s idea to yarn bomb her own yard. What fun!

I’ll probably just knit later.
