My Magic Pink Overnight Bag

I have done nothing shop related for the past four days. In many ways, this is probably very, very bad. And in many ways this has been very, very good. Although my shop has only been open a month and I should probably be spending […]

Monthly Challenge KET

One of the teams I am involved with on Etsy to help promote my shop is the Kansas Etsy Team. The idea is to help promote the shops here in Kansas. Every month there is a themed challenge where the artist must create an item […]

Projects in Pictures

It has been a long couple of days, so I am just going to give everyone a sneak peak at what I have been working on. Acquired on my trip to my LYS today: None of these three things go together, but they all have […]

Autumnal Ennui

It is officially fall, even though in Kansas the temperatures are still nearing the 90’s during the day. And believe it or not, I have been working! But probably not as much as I should have. I finished the wedding afghan, did a lot of […]

And Now, What You’ve All Been Waiting For

So you come to this blog, and I am writing that I am going to start a business selling yarn, but so far, there have been no pictures of yarn, just  a lot of complaining about school. And while school has been an evil dictator […]
