Quite a few changes have taken place in my life in the past couple of years. I opened my dog grooming business back up in 2011. My husband, of over 17 years of marriage told me he wasnt happy anymore in our marriage. After a year of me fighting to save my marriage I finally had to let go after my son was hiding away from him. I asked for a divorce on our wedding anniversary. He left 4 days later. Its been me and Kyle since that day on. His father left and never looked back.
Now, I am truly on my own and finally starting a new journey, The path to were I am now has been quite difficult, but I have found my way back to me. I have learned how to do this all on my own as my family members stepped back when I needed them and my ex washed his hands of us. I use to always be a pretty independent person, but I lost that in my marriage and now finally have found it again. I am learning. I am listening. I am patient. I am persistent. I am wide awake.
I hope to get back into my primitive world and doll making. I do hope to start making dolls again soon, I have made a space upstairs to do some work. I did a show a couple weekends ago to sell off my finished dolls and well the craft bug bit me. I do miss creating, but times have been tough.
For the longest time, I let fear control me. No longer will I allow fear to control me. I know that if I set my mind to certain things, I can do whatever it is! I had forgotten just how strong I was/I am. I just needed to believe in myself. I know I will be okay.
I will be offering my wool again in time... I am sorry to all my prim friends that I just dissapeared.. I had a lot to deal with and I never thought it would take this length of time..
Happy New Year to All Many new changes coming this year..
YES I will still be offering wool, but I will be listing it as I have it available and will also be noting to please email me big wool orders a week in advance so I can be sure to have all the wool washed and ready to ship.
Muslin doll part etc. I am going to be offering pattern pieces sewn up for sale, I will do up any pattern asked for. I have many patterns but if I do not have what you are looking for I will ask that you supply me with the pattern to be sewn up. I follow the pattern instructions stated in pattern.
PATTERNS... well I have wanted to do this for many years with a little hesitation of stepping on toes of other designers.... I have some ideas of what I want to do but now I need to figure out how to print up regular patterns and e patterns if anyone can help me out with sources to do this I would be forever grateful... I will do my best to not step on toes...
SHOWS... I did two major shows last year and they were great.. so looking into doing them and more..
I meant to share these pictures much earlier then now but so much has been going on here.... I had to back to back shows that kept me busy and then I deciede last minute to sign up for the winter show here in my town... so I have been working very hard to make some more goodies...
While I was getting ready for my first two shows my son broke his arm playing football for his school... so we had a 6 hour wait at the emercany waiting to get his cast put on.. I couldn't beleive they let him sit there for 6 hours before telling us it was broken.... anyways after that we were told his ex-rays would be sent up to HURK clinic and that they would call us for an appointment.. NO CALL I had to call them to find out it had been kicked back to University Hospital because my son was not 16 so PEDS had to look at it.. so after two weeks we got in to PEDS... here comes the shocker... the doctor asked Kyle to put his arm out and he took a hold of the cast and wiggle wiggle off it came no saw needed.. we were in shock.. the doctor said he thought it strange that kyle was making a fist with his cast on he said most people leave the fingers out straight.. he said he was holding it on.. So we got him recasted with a fiberglass cast... We go back today to get it cut off and x-rays done to see if it has healed or if he needs surgery...
Well it is that time of year again... busy working getting ready for our annual fall show at our store, I also ventured out this year and signed up for an additional local show that runs the weekend after our show.. so my deadline is Oct 14... twenty two days left that is not enough.. I have tones of stuff in the beginning and middle stages.. I thought I would share with you some of our latest store photos..
and here are some pictures of some stuff I have in the works and done..
