The Beach

So, my Aunt and Uncle have a pair of Labs that they take for a walk on the beach every time they visit and this time was no exception. I decided to tag a long since it seems a day by day thing weather I feel better or not. (overall I feel much healthier living here) I took my camera so I could share a picture. I have never taken my camera out. lol. All it knows it taking pictures of my accessories.
I hope to practice and learn to take better over all Real life pictures.
Probably would help if I study the manual.
Ah, practice will make better.

Feltmeup Designs


Have you EVER seen such CUTENESS??!!!!!
I could scream!
I actually might have if it wasn't near midnight!
Well, since I haven't been able to use my Photoshop I haven't had any new pictures of my own work to share...
BUT, even better, I have a NEW Favorite Designer of mine to share with you!!!

Let me introduce you toFeltmeup Designs
SUPER TALENTED and creative maker of Such cute felt creatures I almost feel the need to go brush my teeth!!!

Here is a little more about the creator/designer taken from her profile:

"I am a felt maker and fiber artist based in Hull, UK. I make bags, purses, tea cosies, slippers, embroidered felt art works, felt sculptures and a currently attempting to make fairies... bad fairies!

I started as an embroiderer but I became addicted to felt making after several years of flirting with it on various courses and even teaching a couple of sessions on felt to my students when i taught in Dewsbury.

Eventually the call of the felt became too much and I took up a little community course for fun where I met some of my best friends. I fell in love with felting almost as soon as i finished my first tiny little sample."

I am SOOOO IN LOVE with these that it was difficult to choose just a few to share!

Awe, such a wonderful alternative cake topper!

I can only imagine who wouldn't get joy every time they they looked at these little critters!!!
I love that they are so unique in color and design. It's wonderful to think that you are giving something that is made with such craftsmanship and care! Oh, did I mention they are made with "100% organically farmed merino wool tops from happy sheep on the Falkland Isles."
Now how about them apples!

I'm being a bit silly because I am REALLY TIRED!

Well, it was bound to happen in this economy.
I just received a "Special Notice" in the mail from my State Board of Equalization effective April 1, 2009, the state sales and use tax rate increases by 1%.
"The 1% tax rate increase will expire on either July 1, 2011, or July 1, 2012 depending upon weather the voters approve the proposed Budget Stabilization constitutional amendment in a statewide election to be held May 19, 2009. "

I'm kinda cheating since I haven't had the time to make "new" items...and since I have been feeling AWFUL the last few days, I put a few existing pieces together to make some GORGEOUS sets!!!
I thought to share a few pictures and then I am going to bed early again!
...I barely dragged myself out of bed after 12 hours of sleep!
I think I am getting acclimated to the Northern California weather. It HAS to be that. I just feel FREEZING or COLD ALL the time!!! I am bundled up like that poor child in "A Christmas Story" I KNOW you people HAVE to know who I am talking about! (I LOVE that movie)
Heaven forbid you come knocking on my door because you would laugh to see how ridiculously bundled up I am.
I caught a glimpse of myself passing a mirror and literally "laughed out loud" seeing how silly I looked!!!

Back to sharing pictures!!!

ugh...I think since I was pushing myself through my "not feeling well" for the last several days...last night my legs and feet were REALLY BAD. I don't know WHAT I did different but the flair up was not pretty. I actually haven't had an episode this bad in months!
I just felt terrible this morning and didn't get out of bed until almost 1:00.
Sorry everyone, I didn't make it to the post office today. I'll make sure to go tomorrow.
My sinuses are hurting like crazy and I am SOOOO Congested.
I just received some great products from Joyful Girl Natural. I got the allergy nasal decongestant product. PERFECT TIMING!!
...I am having problems with my Photshop so it's not working otherwise I would have listed a picture of my new products.
Perhaps I will when I get it working again!
Anyway, Sorry that the packages will go out tomorrow.
I am actually going to turn in early.
Thinking positive I'll start fresh and new tomorrow morning!

Feeling better!

Ah, I am feeling much better...I am still a bit under the weather but compared to a few days ago...I feel MUCH better!
I think I'll turn in a bit early to be on the safe side.
I can see in my eyes I'm still not well.
But, I just HAD to share a few pieces I finished!!!
Being sick kinda had me a bit behind...but I know I can only do what I can only do...SO thanks for your patience everyone!!!!
I am working as diligently as I can!
So, like I was saying...
I FINALLY finished a few customs I wanted to share with you all!
Here is a lovely set I created for the Bride. After a little drama (I'll post about this later) everything turned out wonderfully.

I had another client who LOVED my Winter Satin piece but wanted it in Ivory. So here is my rendition of it in Ivory.

I LOVE this earring set! The Bride wanted a matching pair to her Queen's Lace flower.

I just adore Gardenias. My realistic flowers are so much fun because they indeed look VERY realistic! My Bride requested my signature jeweled center. Dazzling "A" quality Freshwater pearls glow against the sparkling clear Swarovski crystals!
Classic Beauty.

Thanks again to all my Brides!!!!

Ugh...I imagine it was bound to happen.
I am NOT feeling well AT ALL.
I think I caught a chill a few days ago taking the garbage containers out to the street.
I started with a scratchy throat...
Last night and today I have the stuffy head, itchy throat, headache and congestion.
I sound like a cold medicine commercial.
...I did go buy some DayQuil and NyQuil.
Not really a fan but I like that it helps me sleep. Most "sleeping" med don't work on me...even the prescription stuff.
So, I sleep for at least 5 hours with this.
I am SO tired since I don't feel well.
I think today will be a short work day.
