My First Sale !

WooHoo I made my first sale yesterday on FeltCHicks ! It was a custom order for a watermelon Snap Hair Clip. I am giving myself a pat on the back because i did it in less than a week of being open. I just hope it continues that way.
I just listed the cutest flip flop keychain/chapstick holder. I added velcro to the top to keep items safely stashed inside.

Felt CHicks

I am so excited that I have another ETSY store now ! It's almost up and running ~ YAY
For about a month now I really have not been feeling to well (Gallstone issues) I have rarely been up to sitting in my studio and working with clay, so I have been going a bit crazy. Anybody that has spent any time with me knows I love all kinds of crafts and have tried many.
I needed to think of something I could do to pass the time since I am no good and just sitting and watching TV or even just sitting still, so I started making things with felt and they turned out really cute. My partner in Crime (Jade) ...I mean crafts will be joining me soon, making Felt creations for the Felt Chicks store. I am making snap clips, headbands, keychains and more with them. I have checked out what others are doing on ETSY with Felt and there is tons competition with this type of item, so hopefully mine (and Jades)will be good enough to stand out and attract buyers. If not I guess we will just have a bunch of cute felt items to give out as Gifts ~ LOL

I don't Believe it !

I can not believe that Kris Allen won American Idol !! I think I stopped breathing for a minute.

Adam Lambert was the winner in my opinion ~ He is Amazing and he is going to have a Phenomenal career and well....He ROCK's !!!! I LOVE ADAM !!!!

Aside from my shock the Finale was Absolutely Fantastic ..... Queen, Kiss, Santana, Rod Stewart, Cyndi Lauper, Keith Urban, Lionel Richie, Fergie and the Black eyed Peas, Queen Latifah and even Steve Martin ~ WOW

I still Love American Idol and Look forward to the next season : )

Live Life to the Fullest

I was saddened today when the kids got out of school and told me that Cam's reading teacher Mrs. Crofts passed away this past Friday Suddenly and Unexpectedly. She was only 55 years young and will be missed by all those that knew her.

I think we all need to be reminded to live every day as if it could be your last and NEVER Sweat the Small stuff (I Don't)! Life is way to short.

Had a Good Cry Lately ?

I had a good cry last night, at the end of the movie 7 pounds. If you enjoy a great story ending with a good sob be sure and watch this one. It stars Will Smith and Rosario Dawson.

Need another good tearjerker to add to the list ? Nights is Rodanthe is another must see. I really didn't know anything about this movie when I started watching it, but knew I wanted to see it because I loved the Stars ~ Richard Gere and Diane Lane. By the end of the movie I was sobbing, not just a few tears rolling downing my cheeks but honest to goodess crying.

If you are done with the tissues and just want to see a cute movie that's kind of silly I recommend Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler. I bought this one and my family and I have watched it a few times already in the last month.

I am just loving the way these turned out so I am offering them on ETSY with customized team names. Cam snatched the first one I finished and put it on right away. I am only charging 3.50ea for them to cover supplies and anything left over will be donated to JDRF.

I Have been really productive ~ YaY !

I feel so much better about myself when I am productive ! Yesterday I spent quite a while cleaning up my studio and even did a little rearanging. I also go caught up on some housework and still had some time to play with clay. This morning I got some listings done on ETSY and hope do get a few more listed later. I am really pleased with how my first ever bottle cap pendants turned out. If not later today definetely tomorrow. For now the weather is nice and I want to get out and enjoy it with the kids !

American Idol

I know it's that point in the Season where only 4 people are left, They are all good and someone has to go........ I just can't believe it was Allison. Allison rocks and no matter what she is going to Have a Huge career, It was just sad to see her go. Good Luck Allison Iraheta !
