Post # 177...

So 1 year ago today I started this blog. Why? Why not? It seemed like a good way to spread my Sassy-ness around a bit more and I have met some wonderfully cool folks. I have learned so much (but my typing still sucks) and been super inspired.
So thank you to everyone who stops by to see what I have to say. Feel free to leave a comment, let me know you are really out there and not just figments of my stat counter.

To celebrate I will be loading my Etsy shop with goodies all week. If you mention "Happy Birthday" in the comments section of your order, I will send along a little extra thank you.
More sweater purses and clutches plus some fabric postcards are all on deck.

The ornaments were hung..

on the wall with great care,with hopes that many shoppers soon would be there.
The image below will take you the rest of the collection. Josh at Clay Squared asked if I could make more if they run low or sell out completely. Inside I was jumping up and down at the thought of that but I calmly nodded and said, of course I would be able to do that. Yoicks! Check out the bliss series. Those are images of my Fiesta cups and saucers, I sold on eBay last year. I am more of a mug gal. They were loads of fun to do. Look for some in the Etsy shop some time soonish.

I had a little bit of time while I was out so I stopped by Crafty Planet and picked up a few goodies for myself. I will show those tomorrow.

Where the hell have I been...

A vaild question indeed. I have been right here working my ass off.

I am sure you figured out I always make the halloween costumes, right? Here are this year's
Robyn's is based on a drawing she did( with some minor alterations by mom)

and Q's is all about the light saber.

He was a knight last year so I had to relent on the whole weapon thing but I do draw the line at guns, we shall have none of that, thank you very much.

Z is just doing her thing, she found a tutu in the dress up box and we just went with it. The girl loves to twirl!

I also whipped up a t shirt for myself. I am totally digging this raw edge applique look.

On another note I am finishing up wee quilty ornaments for the
Fourth Annual Made in Minnesota Show My plan is to have 25 so I best get back to it. I am going to set them up on Sunday, I'll try and remeber top take some pictures.
