Hello folks, just dropping a note to say that the Luck, Love, and Hedgehogs Design Shop has been FEATURED for the first time ever in a Blogozine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The online-magazine's name is Fierce and Nerdy and can be found here: http://fierceandnerdy.com/

Not that I'm REALLY REALLY EXCITED or anything.

Ahem, of course.

The article launches tomorrow (Wed. 25th) at 10 Am. Be sure to go take a gander. I haven't even seen the article yet! So, head on over to Fierce and Nerdy and read the article tomorrow. Tell all your friends!!! :D

Okay, I'd better get going on all my other projects. Hope you all are having FABULOUS weeks.

Winter Cleaning?

I'm just feeling chatty today. I think I've been driving my sister crazy. The whole time she was playing various computer games I was asking, "And what are you doing now? What's going on? Whatchyadoin?!" Two-year-old-style. She'll be glad to get away from me.

Happy President's day! Yay no school! In order to celebrate, I've been...doing my history homework. Wonderful. Luckily, I'm all done with my work and it's not midnight, so perhaps I'll get some time to myself for crafty goodness. Cleaning my room shouldn't take too long...

On second thought...it's been a while since I could see my own floor.

Today has been productive so far. I woke up at ten am, ate some left over Olive Garden pasta for breakfast, did homework, started a loaf of bread in the bread machine, more homework, made lunch, did dishes, finished homework and renewed ALL the items in the shop in some desperate attempt to sell stuff. It's been a long time since I've sold anything. But I do have 31 hearts on Etsy. Hooorah for that. And I have sold two hats at school...and that huge order of twenty two crocheted chocolate candies was delivered to my teacher last. Okay, so for a slacker I'm not doing too poorly.

mmkay, I have to go take Tara to a Girl Scouts thingy. Hope you all are enjoying your day off of school/work as much as I am.

All my love,
Carolyn Michelle

The Toy Society: Bushfires: thetoysociety@gmail.com
I'm sure you've all heard, but wildfires are sweeping Australia. Thousands are left homeless and as of yesterday, the death toll is 173. Personally, it's hard for me to imagine being forced out of my home and wondering whether or not my house will be reduced to a pile of ashes by the time I am able to get back. These fires are personal for me because I know many crafters through the Internet who are based in Australia.

You may recall my involvement with The Toy Society, which began in Australia. If any of you are looking for crafty ways to get involved with relief efforts, you may want to read The Society's blog here as they have some good links. You can always make a plushie and send it off to Toy Society members in Australia who will make sure it gets into the hands of someone in need. Just send them an email for the information: thetoysociety@gmail.com

And the Red Cross always works, too.

Crafters, let's reach out!

I was featured!

Long time no blog.

Wow, life is crazy. I only have a few minutes to post this little blurb about the Treasury I got featured in, on Etsy. You can see it here if you check it out within the next few days. But hurry, Treasuries sadly are not permanent. But, it is exciting to be featured nonetheless. :D

Good deal.

In other news, I got two orders from people at school this week. One netted hat and a whopping TWENTY TWO crocheted chocolates. Wow. My whole purse has become infested with the things. I'm almost done and hopefully, at some point soon, I'll get enough "me time" that I'll be able to hot glue all the little buggers into their wrappers.

Still got lots to do, this is my only free night this week...I'm beginning to forget what my house looks like; I'm never home. :P

Hope you guys are having wonderful weeks and are staying warm *fingers freeze off*
