the most terrifying of pumpkins

Behold! The most terrifying of pumpkins:


Ahhhh!!!! Not the internet! It's funny to think how dependant on technology we've become (or at least I have...) so since my brain is overloaded with all those details that are complicating my life I figure it's time for me to crash. Now I just need to find my power button so I can turn myself off and reboot....

bring on the jewels

I somehow managed to whip out a week of blog posts despite my insane schedule (and important project procrastination...oops)! Hurray! Someone bring on the celebratory jewels! No? Wishful thinking perhaps? Probably. Oh well. Since it's caturday anyways this bedazzled kitty will have to do:

Me-ow. Happy weekend and extra happy thanksgiving weekend to my fellow Canadian pals!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better than Ylvis' "the fox" song and video (link) take a gander at this ridiculously cute t-shirt design (link):


Yep. It was pretty much destine to trigger an explosion of "what does the fox say" merch - but the cuteness of this one snags my attention for sure! Look at those little pudgy (and happy) dancing fox moves! Ah! I'm melting! If only real foxes were so jovial.

What does the fox say?

Just in case there is any chance you've missed this viral and extremely catchy piece of internet gold. Take the next few minutes and be bizarrely entertained:

Wasn't that something else? I'm certainly a fan...but not as thrilled when I realize that the song has been stuck in my head for the last month. Minor details....

More Yarn Basidiocarps Please!

Some people are just masterful at bringing together things that I love and these darling pom pom mushrooms (link) are no exception. Just take a gander:


Ack! They are just perfect! Bright colours, little dots, and oh so yarn fluffy! I will have to add these to my crafting list and string them into a garland or something. Heck, maybe you could make a few different sized ones and make one heck of an ascetically pleasing mobile! OoOo! What do you think?

Sorry, We're Closed.

Guess what? Running a crafting business is incredibly difficult when you work six days a week at two different jobs, struggle with a multitude of health issues, live out of a suitcase, don't have access to any suitable crafting space or supplies, and don't have any stock organized or unpacked! Imagine that! Yup. I'm no longer living in denial that my etsy shop will be open again before the xmas selling season and I won't be able to restock any of my consignment stores for this season. Rats. Looks like I'm closed for a bit.  


That being said, I haven't stopped dreaming up a whole plethora of fun and geeky craft projects I can't wait to start on in the new year and to share with all of you! Sometimes you just need to step back and reevaluate what needs to be done to keep your life happy and able to run smoothly. I'm a little sad to be skipping out on the best crafty season of the year, but will all the more enthused and revitalized to start strong again once the renovations and unpacking is done! Huzzah!

Taking a Moment

Since fall is in full swing, and we're making our way into October - I have come to the realization that I have been living out of a suitcase for five months now. Although I do keep telling myself organization, unpacking, and regaining my sanity is right around the corner - it may end up taking a tad longer than expected.  I'd like to look on the bright side of things and just imagine Fraser and myself like two little squirrels hibernating in our little hole (bedroom) on a tree (condo) with a whole bunch of growing (renovations) to do! I mean just look how darling this guy is:


Aww! Those little fuzzy whiskers get me every time.  Progress is slowly coming along and even though we have loads of work to do before unpacking can happen, it will happen at some point. That's a plus right? I think so. Oh...and I will get to those wedding thank you cards one of these days....I hope...
