Just a quick note :)

Hi everyone!
I've started to have a few incidents, so I wanted to let you know:  If you e-mail me, I will respond via e-mail.  If you post on the wall, I will respond by commenting on that post and/or messaging you depending on the situation.  If you post a comment on the blog, I will respond here (unless it's for a giveaway--until I figure out how to make blogger let me comment on each individual comment instead of just posting another, I won't be commenting on those posts).

I am not a fan of receiving the same message twenty different ways and times (okay, twenty is an exaggeration), so I don't want to do it to you.  Please, let me know if you all would prefer that I do though.  I can, I just don't want to annoy or irritate you or make you angry.
I need to get back to work and I've a bridal shower to attend to later, but I'll be logging on later this evening to check for posts.

One last thing:  I am listed on the page as the Page Owner and Admin I believe, so feel free to send a message to me personally if you need to.

Thank you for your feedback!

So, I hopped over to one of the giveaways I'm sponsoring and noticed that people were posting that they were subscribing to my blog via e-mail!  This made me excited!  Thank you so much!  So, I logged on here to see if there was a tally (I kind of like to know HOW MANY people are "loving" my work, I promise you that I wasn't wanting your e-mails for spam or crap--which I hate spam, by the way; so much so that I'm close to blocking some family members from e-mailing me) so I could see a total number off "followers"... While I don't have a number, I did find a page that allows me to see who is referring me (well, not really "who" but which websites) and the total amount of page views for my pages.  My free pattern has over 6,000!  People actually check me out!  Sometimes I feel like I'm just posting to talk to myself.

As for the sale...

So, I really need to get on the ball and start linking my amazing friends, inspirations, and awesome competitors here on the page... I'll get around to that probably sometime this evening.  I need to cook dinner for the family and wait for my husband to wake up so that I can finish cleaning my craft and storage area that is in our bedroom currently.

I just wanted to post that and apologize to all of my loverly ladies.  You girls know how hectic it's been here.  I've been trying to get pieces done that aren't commissioned so that I have something on hand in case you want to buy something not commissioned as well as trying to crank out some amazing pieces for some models!
I've been donating some pieces to auctions and sponsoring in my competitors giveaways and I'm TOTALLY enjoying the new fans that keep popping up!  I just wish I actually had more people posting on pieces telling me I'm amazing... NO PRESSURE ;)

The April Giveaway ends in just over 24 hours... I am as excited as you are!  I hope you've entered it!
Well, I've taken long enough to type this.  I'm making spaghetti for dinner and it's just about done.  I'll pop on here and post when I've finally added those links :)

If I'm not back on here posting tomorrow:  Happy Resurrection Day!   (And Happy Birthday to me!)


Yep, my mental sticky note got lost....
Easter/Spring Sale:  April 23rd to April 30th--all orders $5 or greater take an extra 25% off!  Woot! :D  NOW would be the time to put in all those blanket and Christmas orders!  Christmas is only 246 days away!

Well, I am no longer going to be a work-at-home mom.  I had an interview earlier today and I will start work at a local restaurant on Monday!  (YAY for steady income...)   Don't worry, this will not effect the time it takes for jewelry to be made but it will lengthen the time it takes for me to crochet pieces for you.  I will still take orders and do them with love and care as always. :)
So, I took the time I had to work up some pieces so that they can go home as soon as you want them!

So, I have a few pieces that I'm going to add to this post that are pre-made.  They're just something fun I decided to do AND THEY ARE DISCOUNTED!!!!

Blogger Webpage Design

Hi, everyone!  I had a few questions, but first off, don't forget about the giveaway going on!  Comment on the blog "April Giveaway" and then go post on the status on facebook at (click this link) saying that you commented so that I can contact you if you won!

Alright, my question.. How do we set things up so that we can comment on comments?  I want to post on comments, but I cannot figure out how to set that up.  If anyone could let me know, that would be AWESOME.  And it would make interacting with you on the blog so much easier!  I'm not ignoring the comments on the giveaway post, but I don't want to mess up the tally on accident!

Also, if you want to place an order, until I get the etsy and paypal up and running, e-mail me at and I'll get back to you as soon as possible!

I hope everyone is having a nice week so far!  I better get back to work on some products.  There's a few commissions and I'm working on getting some ready-to-order pieces done for your viewing/ordering pleasure!

Boston Auction

I do not know the family directly, but we share mutual friends...
There's a family that lost their little boy on April 1st.  He was born at 9:09am and was 3lbs 12oz.  Breezybug Boutique has an auction going on that I donated a jewelry set to (it was the only premade thing I had around--and it's one that I like to wear).  Please, go check it out. I do follow the blog and they have a donate button at the bottom of the blog if you want to just donate instead of buying an item.
