I have been wanting to make an amigurami for a while now and have looked at pattern after pattern but can't seem to get started. I'm a little intimidated, I guess! They look super hard, but according to the patterns, they're for advanced beginners. That would be me! Has anyone tried them? I'd love some advice!
Here are some of the one's that I've been looking at
2. I'm having my first trunk show and I'm making jewelry like crazy to prepare for that.
3. I'm trying to get my website finished for Pink Checkers Design. The "About Me" page is really holding me up. I'm having a hard time getting the words out!
4. I have to get ready for my almost 6 year old's birthday. She L-O-V-E-S to make up stories and draw, so I'm putting together an art and writing kit for her. Of course, it has to be one-of-a-kind! I'm sure I'll be working on it until the day of her birthday!
5. Girl Scout cookie sales are finally over!!!! I need to finish up all the paperwork for that and get it turned in. Being the Cookie Mom wasn't that bad. I just know the troop leader and I need to reward ourselves with a couple of pedicures!
6. Easter is right around the corner and Easter baskets need to get put together.
7. Taxes need to be done.
8. Loose ends here, there, and everywhere that need to be tied up!!!
Oh, and if that wasn't enough, I found out about this class this morning
Wow! I'm am sooo off my blogging schedule! I promise I'll try to do better next week! It seems like a have a blue-million things to do right now! I've got a 6 year old's birthday to get ready for, spring cleaning, Girl Scouts, and t-ball. Plus, I'm getting ready to sell Pink Checkers Design in a brick and mortar shop and I'm trying to get all that together! Time management has never been my strong suit!
So, here's a little something fun to hold you over until I get back to normal!
We're taking the girls and nephew to see this bunch of yahoos on Saturday. If you've never seen Yo Gabba Gabba, watch this video.
You either love them or you hate them! We love them, so off to Cincinnati we will go!
I got this from my aunt for my birthday! I love, love, love nesting dolls! It's nice when someone actually pays attention to what you say and gets you something you LOVE!!! Thanks, Becky!
Then, I got a card from my Happy Mail partner. I'm so glad I joined this because it truly made me happy to get this card in the mail! My partner, Lehua, has an awesome blog called Heart On My Sleeve. She's super cute!
Well, I'm still working on my new website for Pink Checkers Design. Hopefully, it will be done in the next couple of days.
I'm so excited to be a part of this, along with some other awesome bloggers. Thanks, Katie!
Yesterday was a beautiful day here. We got to go out and take a walk, ride bikes, and chat with neighbors. It made me realize that I have NOTHING to wear for spring! I think I'll go out for a little retail therapy today. I went back through my Style School Style File to get some ideas and here is what I found
All of this came from Old Navy. I don't know if these white legs are ready for skirts yet, though!
My birthday is tomorrow. I'm working on my 32 before 32 list. I'll post it tomorrow! I've got some good stuff on there!
I have not been creatively productive at all today. I've done a few random things, but nothing exciting. I'm still working on my Indie Biz portfolio. It's coming along, slowly. Class started yesterday! Eeek!
I feel like I need to do something, but I don't know what. I'm just not inspired today.
I got these paperdolls for my daughter for Christmas.
It's all the Red Velvet girls. They're so stinkin' cute! I haven't let her play with them yet because I keep meaning to put contact paper over them to make them a little sturdier. I love them so much and I know they will get torn if I don't reinforce them with something. So there, that is my project for today. I need to get busy, then. I'm sure she will want to go outside and play today when she gets home from school.
It's beautiful here. Perfect for taking a walk and riding a bike!
I'm so excited for the new AliceinWonderland to come out! I NEED to see this movie and I NEED to go this weekend. Let's just call it an un-birthday present to me! I mean my birthday is next Wednesday, but I can't wait that long.
Last spring we took our daughter to DisneyWorld for her 5th birthday. It had been 15 years since I had been there and all I can remember is wanting to see some of the characters and the only one I saw was Chip and Dale. Bummer. It was kind of ironic that the first characters we saw when we entered the Magic Kingdom was Chip and Dale! BUT, as soon as we saw them, we were walking to the teacups and here comes ALICE! She had just gotten off the teacups!
If Chip and Dale hadn't slowed us down, we could have been on the teacups with her! Grrr! I forget I'm 31 and turn into a kid and scream "Aliiiiiice"!!!! I was so flippin' excited to see her! She is my fav!
Doesn't she write pretty?
Here's some super sweet Alice in Wonderland things I've come across:
I own this domino pendant from The Odd Bird
You can get one here. I love what Tara does with her dominos. She's very talented!
I also have a similar set of Alice in Wonderland cards from Stephanie Fizer
Christmas was just a whirlwind of orders and I took a little break after the holidays and I just haven't gotten back in the groove. I've had some orders here and there, but I have such BIG plans for my business! I just don't know where to start, I guess.
Here's my goals for 2010:
*sell in a brick and mortar shop (any suggestions? I have no clue where to start.)
*hold at least one trunk show
*learn some new techniques
*attend a few craft shows
That's not much, right?
