Long time, No see!

When you are as busy as I am, time just flies and before you know it you havent blogged in 16 months! I simply can not believe it has been over a year since my last post. It's sad, really, because I like photographing various things and blogging about them. It's one of those relaxing just-for-me things that exist in this world for which I do not find time.

The major change since my last post is the addition of our two little furbabies, Sprinkles and Isabella.

Sprinkles was a birthday present for my husband's birthday in June of 2009. We loved him so much that I decided to contact the breeder and ask if she would be having any more litters in the next year or two because I wanted to eventually add a little sister for Sprinkles. Much to my surprise she told me she had a female puppy that she was going to keep but her husband said no. She was ready to go to a good home. Long story short, this female turned out to be the litter mate of Sprinkles! We picked her up later that day and havent looked back.

Sprinkles and Isabella immediately clung together and have hated being apart ever since. They are the light of my life. I never thought I would love them as much as I do. They're part of our family and are not less important than any other person I know.

So, this is what happens when you sell cool supplies and had coffee twelve hours ago and finished a lot of the work you had on your to do list.
I have been dying to play with my little wood people but have not had the time or energy. Tonight I had both and made this little ballerina! I have to admit, I got the making-ballerinas-idea from my aunt, but this little girl is all mine! I can not stop looking at her. ♥

Fun Times

I am probably the person who likes winter the least. I cant stand the cold, wind, mess, greyness and coats. Yuk! However...I do have to admit that it can be beautiful. Some of you know that I have recently moved into a cute little house from a crappy little apartment and I want to share some of the pretty winter views from my office window.

I created these awesome gift tags but I am having the hardest time naming them! I can name other people's items lickety split, but for some reason Im not getting anywhere with these.

More Little Nighmares

I got another request for a batch of covered matchboxes. I was thrilled! Although the process of making them is incredibly painstaking, they're just too amazing when they're all finished!

This time a request was made to somehow make a box in which to place a little bunch of matchboxes. Thus, this way-too-cute bunch of pictures! ♥

My baby!

After months and months of staying up late packing my Etsy orders (which I love but I also have a more-than-full-time job) I finally saved enough money to buy the digital camera I have been wanting!

No more point and shoot for me, I got a real life, honest to goodness digital SLR! I must say that I LOVE it! The difference it has made in my ability to take good pictures is fantastic. No more buying film, getting it developed, fighting with the photo people because they did something wrong, wasting film, not knowing if a photo turned out or not. I have been reborn and Im SO excited!!! My interest, passion, and love of photography has been renewed big time! I can not stop playing with this camera, it's just awesome! Yaay!

The Cutest Little Nightmares

I had a request for paper covered matchboxes (with matches). I absolutely LOVE the end result but they were a little bit of a nightmare to make. I hand cut the cover paper for each box, added adhesive and stuck the paper to the box, and then cut the ribbon and tied it. Doesn't sound like much, but try it! You'll be throwing these sweet little babies out the window in no time. They sure are cute, though!
