I got invited to join a web ring!

Hmmm...whats a web ring? lol Well it is a FABULOUS blog with very talented women, making Delicious paper eye candy. If you love paper these shops will make you swoon. Sigh........paper I love you so.
The tags above are part of my Cabinet of Curiosity's and Natural Museum series. I really love how they came out. I cant wait to make more. Now if I just could find the time. I have really become obsessed with ideas behind cabinets of curiosities and natural science. Shadow box's, jars, cabinets full of plant specimens, bird eggs, nest, and bugs. It all just makes my soul hum. This is the heart of my art. I do LOVE the glitter and lace but my heart belongs to nature art. So far I have not found much in the way of information on using these things in art. So if anyone knows of where I could find it please let me know. Catherine Moore and Anna Corba are the biggest inspirations to me.
Well, I must go. I have my step sons 5th birthday party to put together. Another weekend of a house full of wild boys. Oh so fun! Have I mentioned how smelly it gets with a house full of boys? One of life's mysteries: how can something so cute and small smell up a whole room? lol

I have been feeling bad lately. Allergies I think. So I have not gotten much done. I have however made a few more Halloween items. I really like the way Scruffy owl #2 turned out. He is fatter than the first one. I will be adding new items to my ETSY shop this week. I have a new series coming out I am calling "Cabinet of Curiosity's-Natural Museum." I have been working on the idea for months. There will be tags and bottles and all sorts of fun things.

Oh good grief I have been tagged by Rachel from FH Design. lol

Here are the rules:

Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

My middle name is Kay. Haha

K- Keegan is the name of my adorable sweet son who is missing his front two teeth at the moment.

A-Always. I am always working on one or more projects. I am always busy. I am always forgetting stuff. I am always running out of glue.

Y-Yippee(oh come on. Y is a hard one) Yippee my booth and etsy store are doing awesome. Yippee Halloween my fav holiday is around the corner.

I LOVE having a studio!

Today we enjoyed just staying at home. The fair last night was fun. Not much to take pictures of however. Our fair is.....well.....kinda....crappy. Lol No cool crafts or booths or any thing. Just live stock and small rides. So I didn't get many good pics. I did how ever get a shot of this little boy. I have no idea who he was but, he just had all American Fair all over him. He was eating a corn dog, holding a way to big cap, and was very dusty. What a cutie! I have decided one of my all time favorite smells is cotton candy. But, giving kids cotton candy at 8:00 at night is NOT a good idea. It was how ever fun to watch.

I also had time to work on my studio while the hubby and boys went hunting. was so
quite. I feel so lucky to have a studio. Tomorrow we might go fishing. It was my idea. No, really it was! lol

Feeling Birdy

Today I made some little bird things. One is a cute little altered book or journal and the other a wax collage. You can find them on ETSY.
I also found these wonderful, cute keys at a junk store yesterday. They were 10 cents each!!!! I cant wait to add them to my art and make a few jewelry pieces with them.
Tonight we take all three boys to the fair! I hope between rides they let me see the exhibits. Or just maybe i will sneak away to see them alone. No........that would be way to cruel to leave my hubby with 3 wild boys at a fair. Oh well.....I will take pics to share!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Happy creating,

Well I did a total make over of my ETSY store! I have been thinking about it for a while. So I have a new banner and avatar. I have a TON of stuff on sale. I decided my business online and at my booth were doing great but needed something. After alot of thinking I realized I just needed to make them more professional. So far most of my items have been one of a kind. The ppl that seem to have the best ETSY stores and online boutiques have a lot of the similar items. So I made a list of items that sell well for me. I will be making more of those items. But, each one will still be a little different. Example: altered comp books, I will make a lot of them, all looking different, THEN list them. I think a group of items just looks better too. Not to mention the time it will save me. I really do not know why I didn't think of this before. I guess I just really enjoy creating something new everyday. So I am transitioning from a fun way to make a little extra spending money to wanting to really make a business. So be on the look out for great new stuff!

I thought I would update from previous post. To everyone who commented on my Bat Man post I feel honored to have touched a cord in y'all. Since that post I have gotten a hair cut, bought new shoes, and bought new make up. But, I am still using Bat Man hair gel. I guess I just like it. lol

I am also almost done with my studio. I just have a few touches left.

My sons birthday party was a HUGE success. Thanks to all who wished him a Happy birthday!

My booth did AWESOME! I made alot more money than I ever thought I would. I sold almost everything!

So there you go! Updates in a nutshell.

Have a wonderful day!
