of listings & contemplations


i've put more goodies in theshop! don't think i've gotten my act together - no happy dances just yet. these were all created & photographed weeks ago. i've only just gotten around to listing them. but! i have listed  them, so that has to count for something. perhaps a happy shimmy?

pictured above is a pair of funky acorns. as cute as they look in the photo, it's nothing to how cute they are in person. the caps remind me of illustrations from the 70s.

also listed today are the trios of mushrooms, large & small. these are painted the same as my minis, but their shapes are very different. they also are more than just toys - i shan't say how, you'll have to see for yourselves :)


to my local belfry-ettes: i have been contemplating holding open house days. i don't yet have the details figured out, but when i do, i'll let you know. i am very excited by this!

that is all for today. i need to help thehobbit with some words in cyrano. sigh. homeschooling was so much easier when he was little. (read: kat is so lazy.)

overwhelmed & underpaid


once again i find myself overwhelmed by all of life's goings-on. i thought that i'd be able to catch up once the holidays were behind me, but it seems i was drinking heavily wrong. an example? do you spy santa's hat in the above photo? are you thinking wow kat, couldn't you get it together enough to post a recent picture? don't you love us even a little bit? to answer your queries: yes & yes. i took that photo just a few days ago. that would be the day before i put away the holiday decor. pathetisad.

i tell you this in hopes that you'll forgive my abandoning you. i want to tell you that i'll have my head on straight before the week is out, & back to regular blogging. i also want money to grow in place of the forest of weeds that has overtaken my farm. the sad truth is that i doubt either is going to happen. instead i'll promise to post again as soon as i am able.

so as not to spend the entire post bemoaning my frazzled state, i shall leave you with this:

show & tell


did you miss me? did you even notice i'd been away? let's pretend you answered yes to both questions, shall we? i've been freakybusy since my last post: creating things for theshop, deep cleaning thebelfry, homeschooling, & doing the mama-thing. ok, one of those bits of busyness may or may not have actually happened. can you guess which?

the above photo is of my new squeaky-tight needle case. i have unstained ones too, but they're not yet photographed. these cases are perfect for storing extra needles, or for an on-the-go sewing kit. i've kept the prototype for myself, & have already filled it. (i use a needle book, so am storing the machine needles in mine.)

there are also two new pagan people in theshop: summer & winter. please ignore the fact that the dolls are out of focus & the fence behind them is not.

my favorite new item?

love shacks! i love, love, love these. you have to click on the link, so you can see how big each shack is.

it feels good to be back in the swing of things. there shall be a few more heart-themed items for theshop, most of which will be made from fabric. hmm. maybe i should get sewlie serviced? a new year, a clean machine? i refuse to tell you how long it's been since sewlie's last servicing.

also keeping me busy: projects for thebelfry, others for my sweet boys, & still others for you! yes, the long ago promised tutorials!!

the main reason i've been so busy has just informed me that naptime has come to an end. i'm off to snuggle. you go off to have a lovely day.
