Awesome Pirate Treasure Hunt

One of the wonderful ladies in one of my teams from etsy decided to gather up a few swashbuckling volunteers and create a fun little scavenger hunt/treasure hunt style game.

Melissa came up with the idea she even came up with a really catchy pirate rhyme to explain the game and it's rules. To find out more about the game and how to play and have a chance at one of twelve great prizes, visit this thread

Good luck to all of you scalleywags(sp)- I say that word all the time but have never known how to spell it! lol

Long time, no see...

I am terrible sometimes about getting into a fad and then not following through with it. Myspace- been there, done that. Facebook- In and out in a flash. Twitter- still attempting to keep my sanity there.

Well, my blog was another attempt at a fad I thought. I let it drop after only a few elementary posts and am now realizing that I wish I hadn't. It is a great way really to show my personal and business life all at once. And it is hugely important to me to help promote some of the people in one of my teams from etsy. Therefore, I have to and want to pick this thing back up and dust it off. I honestly want to try. And with all of my hand written journals and diaries in the past, I would drop the habit and pick it back up over and over again. So bare with me here as I relearn, redidicate and probably redo my blog.

You know how you read certain blogs and you actually know exactly what the author means, how they felt, and such? You feel that way because they write it in a certain style that is familar to you or because they have written it in such a way to really use their rhetoric to it's fullest extent. I want to have that sort of witty and fun blog so as I stated before, there will probably be some full fledged changes.

I have been updating my shop a lot lately and for those of you who don't know, my two shops are almost completely seperated now, thank God!

You can visit my shops here
KawaiiBuddies for all things of a cute nature which are made by me

WhimsyWingsAndThings for supplies like ribbon and handmade charms

Hats are way behind in the designing department. However, I will be working on more periodically. I have just been too totally overwhelmed with my addiction to clay as of late. The good thing about that is I never stay on a medium for more than three months at a time. Someone once stated it as "I have multiple personality disorder when it comes to my crafting and art- I always changed mediums."

Here are a few of the clay things that I have been working on...
