Congrats!

One of my dearest friends, who loves me even when I’m being a complete pain in her side, was married to her soulmate today. Her journey hasn’t been an easy one in life, but she’s always overcome and shown amazing strength and grace even during her roughtest time. Mom to 4 awesome kiddos (2 sweet, brilliant girls and 2 sweet, brilliant little boys.) she is a force to be reckoned with.

Lauren is who performed my wedding to Mark, never doubted I’d marry that boy I was so determined to be with. She also listened (And still does) listen to me rant when things just feel like they’re stacking on top of me. It’s rare she loses her temper- at least to the outside world, but she is every bit the mama bear, protective wife, loving friend, everyone should have.

I haven’t gotten to meet her husband yet- everytime I think Mark and I might have free time- Lauren and her little ones or her hubby haven’t had free time. Schedules here don’t like to match up. But, I have 0 doubt in his commitment to her or the kids he’s lovingly taken to. I have a feeling he seems himself a lot like my Dad Rick, not a step parent, but the parent who stepped up.

I can’t wait to see the life they build together and wish them all the blessings in the world.

Update to Shop and Members Area!

Sorry, don’t get too excited, it’s not the pixel shop.

I’ve now added larger stuffed animals. This is from the book “Huggable Amigurumi” and it can be found here.

I’m super proud of how this little Pengy came out! (Click the image to go to the full size image).

Happy Holidays!

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

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.

Happy Holidays?

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?

Monthly check in

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?
