Happy Holidays! (0) Comments

Posted by admin under Uncategorized on December 22nd, 2019

I celebrate Yule on my own, and Christmas with family, so for me there’s multiple holidays!I hope yours are full of joy and laughter. I’m hoping two people get the karma they deserve though. Full circle and all that. πŸ˜‰

I am working on a members area. I should have some graphics made for it by March next year, enough to open and have it be worthwhile. I’m not sure how regular updates will be, but by that point I’ll be back into market prep so..

Guess you’ll have to bare with me! And this layout will be changing too! Oh! If you see a page labeled “Mom’s tags!” I collect tags for my mom. She loves snowmen. So, if you’ve got an extra snowman tag, throw it my way with “Denise” on it πŸ˜€


Coming soon: Freeware and Resin Jewelry (0) Comments

Posted by admin under Uncategorized on December 8th, 2019

Yep. You read correctly! Soon I’ll have Freeware pixels up and Resin Jewelry you can buy.

Freeware pixels will be shared with anyone who requests them. You will have to request them as I have a no use list and while it’s only 3 users deep, I’m not going to have my pixels given to those people.

Also coming soon! Resin Jewelry!

I’ve been playing with UV Resin. And my friend was kind enough to send me addon’s for it. So now I have glitter and dried flowers and duckies and.. the only thing I don’t have is resin dye.

Last night I had way too much fun, as you can see with the following picture.

Click for fullsize

1st row (L-R): pink/green rose, double dose Dark blue/teal glitter, big chunk gold/silver glitter.
2nd Row (L-R): Blue Rose (spoken for), Purple Rose (Spoken for), Deep pink rose/Rose glitter.
Bottom Row: (L-R): Pink/white opal glitter, Big Chunk Gold/silver and celebration glitter, Celebration Glitter Square (spoken for)

You could also use them for wire wrapping, less brittle than some stones. πŸ™‚

And the pixels? Oh have a preview.

Hi! Anyone else excited for the holiday season? No? Yeah I’m not yet either. Likely because I feel like I have far too much to do. So, to catch up what’s happening:

Hubby and I got photos done! Our Photographer is amazing and will be linked below too. If you’re in the Southern Illinois/St. Louis area, you should consider her as your photographer.

Thank you Angela Our photos are absolutely gorgeous!

Second, my friend and I have started to stream again, though it’s rather uncensored. It’s mature audience rated on Twitch because we simply need the break, him from his job, me from running a business. It works well. I’ll share more on that on a later date.

I am back to pixels, and will soon have more pixel sets up. My markets for the year are done and I’m somewhat grateful.

How are you all? New things going on for you?

I never promised to be good with titles. But I am working on trying to check in more so here I am. It’s been a whirlwind of things.

First, as far as markets go, the next Meet the Vendor Event is October 26th 9-3pm at Lifehouse Community Church. Please come see us, the event can be found on Facebook.

Second, Shopping for Wellness went decently well! We raised, between donations and the silent auction, $340! For my friends first event he headed, and hopefully the first of many years we’ll do, I’m amazingly proud of him.

Third, I’ve been working on new baby blankets and baby sets. It will include a lovey sized blanket, and a baby hat/baby shoes all matching. I’ve been working on the blanket portions, they take me longer. Preview image is below of a blanket I finished. I’ll have the whole set done soon.


Fourth, I finished the law Module I was taking and passed with flying colors. Now I’m onto Criminal Profiling (Passed with a 90%) and Forensics (Just starting tonight). I will up my skills!

Are all you precious people doing okay? What’s new?


Good news! (0) Comments

Posted by admin under Update on September 4th, 2019

So it’s time to start updating the site. I’m going to try and teach myself to do this at least once a month if not sooner.

Onto good news! And I’ve a lot of it.

First, I made it 6 months seizure free! I did it! This means I can go for my license now and redo my hours of driving so I don’t have to rely on my folks to get Mark and I places.

I will look into that after the new year since live is pretty busy as is now.

Second, my summer market season is over, however, that doesn’t mean the entire market season is over. I have Shopping for Wellness coming up Sept 21st, and October means my last event with my mom’s church.

HOWEVER, I am still looking for Christmas markets locally, so that may not be the end of my season. Now, would you like to see some of the highlights of Market? I may even have a photo with a demi god!

OH! And best yet, there was a vote for riverside attractions between everyone who has businesses/art along the Mississippi River. My yarn bombing group got third place! It makes me excited. I did just do a piece for the next canopy installation to, that’s below.

On a personal level, I’m taking online modular classes to try and boost my revenue, and I’ve stopped pixels- for now. I’m still working on sets, but I’m not actively working on that end of the shop- yet.

Below are photos from my night market season- my table, 2 of the stuffed toys I made (The bear was claimed instantly by our markets tiniest customer. She’s adorable.) See Maui? Midwest Maui is the page to find him on. He’s absolute sweetheart and it was awesome to watch the kids at market bounce when he showed up. He even fire spun, but I have no photo of that.

The above photo of me working was taken by Andrew Dobson, a local photographer you can usually find at our local events. He’s a sweetheart, if a bit quiet (opposite to my loud self) and he may be the only person to ever got a picture of me looking so calm as I crocheted. I was working on mini octopi (And this was the week before my teddy bear was done).

So what am I working on now? Fall decorations. I’ve made a pumpkin so far and working on more within more colors. I even got a suggestion for a Pokemon. A season ghosty one. We’ll see if I can do it. Below is a photo of my pumpkin. The pattern came from: https://stringydingding.com/pumpkin-amigurumi-free-crochet-pattern/
