I just wanted to take a moment to invite you to my fashion Tumblr here: http://splashion.tumblr.com/. I spend more time over there than I do here. In the side bar of that page is also a link to my belly dancing tumblr.

[Current Mood |excitedexcited]

We are off to sell arrows at the Robin Hood Tourney tomorrow. This is the one that got postponed due to rain earlier in the year.  It's an SCA event, though I'm not looking forward to wearing garb in the heat. Better heat than rain though. I guess I'll work on my atlatl and my walking stick. The event is in the Van Nuys, CA area, so a bit of a drive for us. We should be loading the truck right now, but our neighbors decided to hold a football game family/ gathering between the garage, the backyard, and the driveway.  I couldn't even get my garage open.

Spring Day in CA & Happy Mardi Gras [Mar. 8th, 2011|12:31 pm]

It is a beautiful spring day in S. CA. My boyfriend is out on the patio making arrows. I might go out there and work on some gourd projects while the weather is so nice. I want to paint too. I am trying to organize my clutter so I have more room to paint and sew and bead and craft. Saturday is an SCA friendship tourney right down the street, so we are planning to go to that. Which reminds me that I should practice my juggling. I've neglected my juggling over the winter because I have nowhere indoors to practice and too many neighbor's geeking at me to do it outside if and when it's warm enough. I really need to start stretching daily, because I feel like I'm getting stiffer by the minute, mostly from sitting too much in front of the computer and the TV. How did I become so sedentary? Hope you are all planning some fun for Mardi Gras today.

Plagued with Glitches [Feb. 21st, 2011|10:52 am]

I'm not sure why I'm getting so much spam lately, but such is the nature of the Internet. I'm also getting email from American Express saying I'm overdrawn but I don't have an American Express account and the name listed isn't even my name. I'm not sure what to do about that one. I finally wrote back and said I don't even know this person. Please check your records.

I wonder if Mercury is in retrograde or something because I've been plagued with technical glitches this week. The library didn't notify me that I had seventeen books overdue, the bank charged me for printing the checks that were supposed to be free, and so on. I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to hold on to my money that other people seem to think is theirs.

I Hope I'm Done Shopping [Jan. 8th, 2011|10:30 am]

[Current Mood |anxiousanxious]

I'm a person that doesn't shop very often. I do my best to make do with what I have.  I think I've bought more in the last 30 days than I've bought in the last year.  Most of it was mail ordered.  Usually it's my boyfriend that gets all the packages, so it's nice that some of them lately have been for me.

I just haven't had time to re-purpose any clothes lately.  My boyfriend got tired of me looking ratty I guess and bought me 2 new skirts.  Well, they were so wonderful, that I went back to that company and bought 5 more things with some holiday cash that came my way.   I'm wearing one of the dresses I ordered right now, and I must say it's one of the most comfortable dresses I've worn in a long time.  I got it from Http://www.holyclothing.com.  If you are a big beautiful woman (BBW) I recommend them highly.  I believe they go up to 6X.

Then I bought some belly dancing hip scarves.  That was kind of a fiasco. I haven't gotten those yet. I just made the Ebay payment yesterday. It's been so very long since I ordered anything off of Ebay that all my feedback has expired.

Then I hit up Art Supply Warehouse twice recently. I can't resist art supplies.  It's my weakness. I got a great plush book featuring all kinds of plush artists. It's called Plush You! by Kristen Rask. It's fun to see what others artists are making. I also got some opaque matte watercolors as well as some sparkly watercolors in a palette.

And we also went to the Welburn Gourd Farm a few weeks ago and I got a bunch of gourds to make into dolls and things.  I've got so many projects; I may have overdone it. That's one reason I rarely shop. I'm so suggestible, I always over buy, and then live without for the next 3 weeks of the month.

Meeting a Little Redhead Today [Jan. 7th, 2011|12:19 pm]

In just a few hours I will get to meet my new grandson.  He's already a month old and I've been trying to meet him since the day he was born, which is a bit tricky when we live 300 miles apart and everyone is traveling all over the country for holidays and a funeral. I'm going to take a million photos and bore people to tears with them. HAHAHA.

Trying to Send Cards But... [Dec. 12th, 2010|01:50 pm]

I'm working on my holiday cards. I guess it's a sign of the times, but I have almost no real life addresses for people I care about. I have emails like crazy, but very few people seem to keep real life address books updated these days.

A Quick Post Before Bed About Knitting and Crocheting [Dec. 6th, 2010|01:49 am]

[Current Mood |annoyedannoyed]

It's cold and rainy tonight. I was going to go to Michael's to buy yarn for the Special Olympics Scarf tutorials, but my windshield wipers don't work, so to be on the safe side, I didn't go.

The scarves have to be made from Redheart in the colors blue and turqua. They should be six inches wide and six feet long. Within those parameters I'll design three scarves, one for the knitting loom, one that is knitted on needles, and one that is crocheted. It's a big project and my editors just asked me and wanted them immediately. I told them there was no way, not this close to Christmas, not when I already have too many projects and far too little time. The best I could promise them was after Christmas and before the New Year, and maybe not even until after New Year.  This is crunch time for artists. I have five Etsy shops to keep full, plus gifts I've already started for family and friends.  I can't just drop everything because the editors want more and more from me.  I'm not a machine.

Archery Gathering on Sunday. [Nov. 25th, 2010|09:22 pm]

[Current Mood |tiredtired]


I was just adding stuff to my archery blog: http://paleoarts.blogspot.com/ I get a lot of visitors there, but no one is following it. It's my fault probably because I don't leave long detailed posts. Our bowmaking group is meeting in the Pasadena arroyo seco area on Sunday.  Guests are welcome. I'm not sure what I want to work on yet. I bought the leather to make a quiver, but haven't figured out what design to emboss on it yet. I still haven't made my atlatl either. There is just so much I want to work on and I lack time management skills and I am often too tired and unmotivated to work on big projects.  I don't want to muck it up either. The leather alone was $25 and that doesn't count buckles, straps, stain, and so on.

I was going to vend at an SCA event on Sat.but I found out there is no room for me in my own booth.  My boyfriend has expanded his archery line and there is not room in the truck or the booth for my arts and crafts anymore. And I'm tired of arguing and hassling over it so I'm just staying home.

Oh well, I need to get back to work. My Etsy items aren't going to list themselves in my shops.
