I was blogged

That's right! To my knowledge, this is the first time I've been blogged. Check out the one post of glory about me here, on Noricum's blog. Special, huh? I thought so. :3 She apparently was quite taken by my Tin of Sardines with she found on my Flickr page, so she posted a little tiny blurb about it.

Thanks Noricum! You made my day...even if I found the post a little late....

Okay, now that I feel all warm and fuzzy from being blogged about, I think I'm off to bed. I do have work tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get a chance to talk to Bubba, my in-house accountant, about my SS-4 form tomorrow. That crazy governmental mumbo-jumbo made my head reel a little. *sigh*

Goodnight dear readers.

This is Getting Scary!

Guess what my plans are for my day off of school?:
Filing for a tax ID number using an SS-4 for Luck, Love, and Hedgehogs Design.
That, my friends, is scary. That means my little shop is sort of...moving forward? Moving towards, I don't know, becoming more of a legitimate business? By that prospect, I am excited and also terrified. The future is a scary, uncertain thing and the thought that I am taking steps to insure that my future is what I want it to be makes me quake in my boots a little. I keep telling myself that if I don't have to power and courage to take initiative and stake my claim on my dreams, then who does?
Okay, maybe I'm over thinking this a little. But that's just how I'm feeling right now. I want to spend the rest of my life doing what I love and today, it's all a little tiny bit closer to my reach.
It's just the IRS, after all.

Two quick things before I dash out of the house:

Happy Friday, loves! I've officailly survived the first week back to school after my glorious two week break. This week sure felt like a month-and-a-half. But, I did get a lot done. There'll be pics later, I promise! :D

Now, for the two quick things before I dash out of here for my Friday night festivities:

1. Look at the banner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!! Isn't it spiffy? Made for me by my new friend on etsy: FashionCandy. I met her in an almost random way. One of my friends, Allison (also a Fiber Freak), was telling me that her aunt made all sorts of stuff and sold on etsy. She gave me the URL and I introduced myself. She is pretty much one of the coolest designers I've come across in a long time. I'm a major fan, now. *girly squeal* Her stuff is so durn cute!!!

2. I'm debating something important right now: shall I or shall I not book a table at the famous Pecatonica "Pec Thing?" Okay, so it's not very famous if you don't live within thirty miles of Rockford, IL but, oh well. It'll be my first show if I decide to book. I'm kinda wary, considering it is primarily geared towards antique buyers. creations are not antiques. >.< BUT it is a huge sale, and all the other area sales are, well, tiny. I want to get a big audience. It's in May...I believe. Debate debate debate. Any advice??

Okay loves. Thanks for reading. Enjoy your Friday night!!!!

The Fiber Freaks Update

Sorry about the long wait for this post. Life went a little berzerk for a while. Getting back into the swing of school is almost as hard as going back at all. My alarm clock is SO not my best friend right now.

Okay, without further ado, here are some quick shots from the Fiber Freaks party on Saturday December 27th:

Top to bottom: My new sewing machine!!!!!!!!!, the jelly donut pinchusion I found time to make, Sammi (in blue) making some shrinky dinks with Jessie Jo crocheting in the background, and me, freaking out a little.
The party was a total success. Everybody made some super spiffy stuff. I only wish I had a ton more pictures to show you. The whole thing was like a whirlwind, I only remembered to ask Tara to get her camera out at the last second. Too bad, there were some great projects. Such as:
-Sammi's rainbow crocheted american girl doll turbin
-Jessie Jo's Huge massive lime green knitted scarf
-Rachael's crocheted acorn
-Tara's tiny tiny tiny shrinky dink cupcake
-Kody's crocheted bug
-Dan's crocheted...thing
-Danielle's crocheted "Texas tie"
And about a trillion others.
There are a few more pictures on my Flickr so check em out!
In other news, two new shop items, go look!!!
Love you lots!!!
