New Blog

Hey Everyone, It's been SO LONG since I've added new info to this blog. It's actually a bit sad to me to see it sitting here, abandoned :-( But, I will not shed a tear! I've created a new blog! One all about my life and crafty happenings! So, go check it out!!!

Juice Feast

I'm so excited to be announcing that I am embarking on my first Juice Feast tomorrow morning. I have been trying to figure out some kind of cleanse to do for a few weeks and just hadn't found what I was looking for until I was inspired to do a Juice Feast.

One of the main attractions to this idea is the name. The word 'Feast' invokes a feeling of abundance as opposed to 'fast' which makes me think of lack. And, for some reason, that's a really important factor for me. Maybe I'm just tricking myself with words, but I don't care :-)

So, I'll be spending the next few weeks partaking in little more than fresh fruit and vegetable juices (I say 'little more' instead of 'nothing' because I know that there's a large chance I'll give in to some outrageous craving during this time, and don't want to give up on myself because of it!) And, I haven't given myself a set end date, just playing to take it day by day, but at least last for 2 weeks.

I can't wait to share all the mood swings (not having my daily large amount of sugar is gonna have some heinous effects I have no doubt!) and triumphs (be they physical or emotional)

My life has recently entered into a definite state of transition. This is truly an exciting time of changes for me. A time of closing doors and opening new ones.
As I stated in my previous post, I will no longer be making stamps. And, after even more deep thought, introspection, and listing to my intuition, I've realized that it has come time for me to close the doors to my Etsy shop all together.
This is a huge decision for me, and was not taken lightly by any means! But, I am a firm believer that shutting the door to something that no longer fits my life's path will open another door. I have no idea what that new 'door' looks like just yet, but I can't wait to see!

I haven't yet set a date to close up shop (sometime within the next couple of weeks is the plan). So, please stop by to see if there is anything you'd like, since they'll all be gone soon.

This blog will remain, although it will definitely shift. I'll share more about my journey through this state of transition and be sure to write a post all about that new Door once I find it!!

End of an Era

...Well, sort of.
After much deep thought and debate, I have decided to stop making hand carved stamps. I realized that I need to find something more creatively challenging for myself, and carving stamps takes up much of the time I could be using to find that creative challenge.
Thanks so much to my stamp customers. It really was a delight creating stamps for you, and working to make custom stamps was a great experience as well.
But, it is time for me to move on in my creative journey
Note: I have decided to sell my personal stamp stash, and as of this post a few stamps are still available in my shop.

I'm Loving this song right now!

Humble Beginnings

While helping my mom clean out a room in her house I can across a few of my old crocheted creations. I must have made these well over 10 years ago!
It's sometimes amazing to look back at items like these and see how much a talent can progress.
Often I find myself wanting to be able to create amazing works of art with a brand new (to me) medium, and forget that it takes time to get really good. And that time is important. So much is learned with each project no matter how hideous it may look to me today! Each one is a step toward mastery of that craft.
