Hippity Hopping it's almost Spring


It's another beautiful day in NC ! The sun is shining and the windows are opened letting in some nice fresh air! Tomorrow it is supposed to be in the 70's!! All this sunshine has me thinking about Spring and all the new things that I can create! I listed both the bunny nodder and the primitive bunny on etsy, they are both my own designs. I just love this time of year when it's not too hot and not too cold! In a couple of months I will be complaining of the heat and how I hate having to keep my windows closed :) 
 I really have been seeing so many nice punch needle designs, and am thinking I may want to try my hand at that. If anyone has any advice please give me a yell! I don't have any clue how to do this or what supplies I need, but boy you all make such pretty things that I just have to give it a try! Have a great day everyone!

Spring is in the Air!

I never thought I would be so happy to see a dandelion! This has been a long winter for everyone, even here in North Carolina! This year we had snow three times! That is so unusual for this area. Today the sun is shining and I spotted some dandelion's growing on my front lawn as well as a bee that is ready to start pollinating everything! Well to say the least I was one happy camper! I love this time of year, when the grass gets green, the flowers start to bloom and you can open the windows and get some fresh air!  It won't last long before I have to re close all the windows and start running the A/C. That is one thing that about Buffalo that I really miss, open windows and fresh air all summer long! 
This type of weather puts me in the mood for creating too. I am working on some bunnies, and I just listed a prim chick and prim duck on ETSY.  Wishing all my prim friends a wonderful spring like day!

Crazy week of running but I did get something done!

It seems as if all I have done for the past two weeks is run into town! I live about 30 miles outside of town it a country type setting and for the most part love it. That is except for when I have weeks like this and spend my days running back and forth to the city! It can be so frustrating to this former city girl that is used to having a store around the corner, or maybe 5 minutes away! Not to mention this CRAZY weather that we have been having in North Carolina! We have had 3 snow storms this year, and they thought we were going to have another one yesterday but it ended up passing us by. I don't have a problem driving in snow since I am from Buffalo New York, but.... I do have a problem driving in the snow with people that haven't driven in the snow and don't know how LOL! I did manage to get a few things done this week, and just listed one of them on ETSY that i wanted to share with you all :)  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

BEAUTIFUL weather if you are a DUCK!

Well it's beautiful weather if you are a duck!!! It has been pouring rain for the past two days! Do you know what rain does to my hair???? It turns me into a big frizz ball!!! I guess I shouldn't complain because at least you don't have to shovel rain!  But on the plus side :) since I'm not out running the roads I have gotten a few new things done, that I will be listing on etsy tomorrow, providing I get their clothes done, I will have 3 new dolls listed that are all one of a kinds!  Plus I will be listing a cool candle box thingy, and a few other surprises!  Well I am waddling off to work on some clothes so I don't have naked dollies! I hope you all enjoy your weekend and stay warm!

Running like a chicken that may be dinner!

It seems like I haven't gotten much done since the new year. I feel like I am the chicken that has  been running from the butcher that wants to have me for dinner! I love where we live, it is on the outskirts of the city, in a country type setting. At times though I do miss city living! When making a trip to town, which takes about 45 minutes, you need to have a plan to get to all the needed stores, and places that you have to get to. It ends up being an all day affair or at least it seems that way! I have a pile of doll bodies waiting for me to get them stuffed, as well as several painting projects that I want to get to, but it seems as if I have had something that I have had to do in town almost everyday!  I am hoping that things settle down so I can get back into a routine of creating!
On another note, the first of the year I started dieting, and exercising! Now this is a big thing for me because I hate to exercise! lol  But I have been doing the wii fit, and weight watchers, and I have dropped 11 lbs!  So I guess the running and exercising is a good thing!
Spring is around the corner, and I will be making some new spring prims, so please stop by my ETSY and see what's new!
