Sort of like the groundhog who was forced out of his hole five days ago to check for his shadow, I've been holed up in my studio... surfacing only to let the dogs out, make more tea and throw a log on the fire.
What's been keeping me so "nose to the grindstone"?
Deadlines looming and things to hook, sew, draw, bind, package, unpackage, prepare and get ready!
I think I may have taken on a bit more than I realized!
But I am excited! Things are happening!
My class has 7 lovely ladies signed up now! I'm pretty sure this one's a go. It starts in 18 days! So there's plenty of time for any one thinking of signing up to do so. However the class capacity is 10 so if you have been thinking about signing up I'd give the school a call right away to assure you have a spot!
I am working and getting everything ready to fly..... these ladies want to learn to HOOK and I won't let them be disappointed!!
So was this a crazy time or what to sign up for another fun selling adventure? Maybe you noticed on my sidebar I have a link and announcement that I will be selling my hand made wares on the new selling blog Primitive Handmades Mercantile. We have an update coming on Friday Feb. 17th (there will be one on the 3rd Friday of every month.) This is the first time I have ever participated in something like this so I have been learning the ropes as well as getting my hand mades made! I've given you a little sneak peek in the photo above of one of my items. It turned out sooooo nice....... you don't mind me giving myself a little plug do you?! Hey.... I need all the self confidence I can get! The sellers who are participating are the best there is in the market today! So I have been a little nervous as well that I can measure up to such talent!
I'll give you another reminder as the day gets closer for the update and a preview of my things..... so keep on the watch!
I am still diligently working on my patterns for sale and hope to have another paper one ready for your spring hooking! So stay tuned for that too!
My deepest thanks for all the sweet comments on my last post for my sister Michelle. She is doing fine. No doubt she still has sad thoughts about the life of that young woman and how helpless we are when we can do nothing to save a life. What we can do though is be aware of those around us and treat each other with all the kindness and respect we can. Whether blogging and commenting on blogs or standing in the line at the grocery store. You never know how a smile or a simple kind word will affect someone you meet. It creates a positive energy flow that keeps on going like a river. You never know that your simple kindness may in fact save a life of someone down stream!
Sweet blessings my friends!
