busy week

Well it looks like this week has been all about pincushions. I made up a new design with circles and made it in several colors. I made a spring chick one that also has circles. I guess I've been in a circle frame of mind lately. They are all listed in my etsy shop createitcottage

I went to my local native american festival tonight and won a goldfish by throwing balls into little bowls. We won five so we traded for one large goldfish. We go every year and win some new fish for our tank.

Last night was an adventure. My little chihuahua(ittlebittle) was coming in from outside and right before she came in the door she went after something. I thought it might have been a frog, but then my big dog(Ginger) went out sniffing and I got the flashlight and there was a opossum staring at me from the screen door. It is twice the size of my chihuahua. I thought I scared if off, but when Ginger went outside the opossum came running up and attacked her. I chased it away and it climbed the closest tree and sat there staring at me. Bold! I sprayed it with the hose. Now we have a big utility light out back so we can let the dogs out until we can catch the opossum. I've never had a run in with one before. I figure it must be a mama. I'll never forget that possum staring at me.

Rainy Day

It rained all day here in the sunshine state. No sunshine today. I did get alot of things made today though because I didn't feel like going out. I did have to make a run to Joanne's due to the last day of the sale. I couldn't take any pics of todays creations, but I have a pic of a bracelet I listed today. createitcottage

My latest creation is a diva brooch. I turned one of my girl sketches into an embroidered pin. I love the wild red hair. That's about all that happened lately. I'm still nursing my swollen foot from the table incident at my show. I made a new flower brooch, but haven't got a pic yet. Next post I'll have a pic. Stay tuned.

Hippity Hoppity

Well I had my fest (my etsy street team) show on Sunday at Dinosaur World in Plant City Fl. I did quite well. I sold several items. I'm so happy. It was only my second craft show, but I hope to do many more. It was a beautiful day. The only problem was that my table fell over on to my foot when I was setting up and now it is all swollen and purple. Oh well I know what not to do next time. Here's a pic of my little bunny plushie I made in front of my orchids I'm so proud of. They are doing so well and they don't take much work. I've always heard that orchids are hard to grow, but mine sure aren't. I don't have a green thumb at all.

It's been awhile

Well I was in a bit of a creative slump for awhile and didn't create or post. I'm getting back in the groove now. I've got some new items in the shop. I have a show this Sunday. Feels good to be back on track. Here's some of the new items. Enjoy! The first is a card case keychain with a bird needlefelted on. The second two are brooches hand sewn from felt.
