Bye bye ebay, hello Amazon Handmade?

In so many words, I also informed him that I’m seriously considering pulling out of ebay after this is resolved, and going elsewhere because I cannot be ebay’s ping pong ball for vague guidelines and ebay-end representative description approval disagreements…

Arkansas Trip 2017

I’m back!! Over the course of the day today, I will slowly be relisting all of my items.

I had such a wonderful trip to Arkansas and thought I would include some images for you! I miss the Ozarks dearly. Among the places we visited were Long Pool, Haw Creek Falls, Blue Hole, Dover Lights Look-out, and a hwy 7 viewing stop. I also stopped by Jesseville and picked up some quality Arkansas quartz! Expect crystal items to be available in my shop very soon!

I’m finally caught up, and YouTube woes.

I hope all five of you that regularly read my posts and the handful of spammers that proposition me daily have had a wonderful week! I am happy to say that I have finally…. FINALLY… caught up on all my back orders. What does this mean, you ask? This means that tomorrow, I will be able to complete the production on my latest video tutorial: Carving a bone hook | Movie Prop Replica (From Moana)

Leu Gardens

Because we have been so incredibly busy, we had a late Valentines Day and the Squishy surprised me with a trip to this wonderful place. A garden with romantic walkways, benches, flowers, history, chirping birds, etc? – He knows me so well.

Goals: Homesteading and RV Dwelling

SO… I have a lot of wonderful things going for me right now. I have a wonderful husband who also happens to be my best friend, I’m working on my first full length book, I’m starting a YouTube channel and blog, I have a wonderful Etsy shop and amazing customers, I’m working on opening this functioning eCommerce website, and I have wonderful friends and family.

So what is missing?

Monarch Butterflies!!

Butterflies, Butterflies, and more butterflies! Did I mention butterflies?

For the last few months, I have come to the realization that I am now a monarch butterfly surrogate mother. A while back, Adam and family from Adam’s Art and Bonsai gave me a little butterfly plant that he obtained from Epcot. I took it home and began cultivating it and all of it’s cuttings and seeds. While I knew it would be great for several species from butterflies to humming birds, I never quite realized the positive impact these plants have on the local monarch population.

Website Matinence

Soooo… As most of you know… I am a graphic designer. I have NEVER claimed to be a good web developer and would rather be head to toe in paint than sit and code. With that being said, I will be initiating some changes on my website within the next few days in an attempt to set up an eCommerce shop. I’m a complete noob, so hang in there with me.
