Isn't the button pretty?
Another Polar Bear hat... This one made for and sent off to Alison, the giveaway winner.
I'm working on a Pink Polar Bear hat order and then I think I'm gonna make a bunny for the Little Mister to wear on Easter.
Yup, I'll have plenty of embarassing pics when Em's a teenager. ;)

I think it's ok, but I'm not quite convinced yet. We'll see how I feel about it in a few days.
Since I've been on vacation I haven't done a whole lot of creating. I've made several of the same hats, but I haven't created anything new. I'm feelin' kinda itchy to make something new.
Guess I better get on that.
Oh. And I've sort-of opened up an Etsy shop, but I've only listed the Koala Hat so far. Kind of as a test. I'll get the rest up soon, and then we can have a grand opening party! :) It'll be fun; you're all invited.

I think this is the best discription of how I feel when I'm performing that I've ever heard.

But I'm nervous.
I've gone to the 'register to be a seller' page on Etsy like fifty times.
Then I just stare at it.
And do nothing. Well, nothing but stare.
It feels like this huge step and what if?... What if my product isn't as cool and cute as I think it might be? How do I effectively market so that people will actually SEE my stuff? 'Cause there's a lot of people selling. What if people think my stuff is cute, but not cute enough to actually invest? What if they think it's crap?
*Sigh*. And so, I stare.
Then I make another hat for Eme. And don't waste my time worrying that he's gonna reject my stuff.
'Cause he won't... At least not for a few years yet.
Have any of you 'taken the plunge'? Any words of wisdom or encouragement?

-Helen Thomson 1943
I'm a dancer. Even though I rarely get to dance anymore I still identify myself as such. As in, when people ask me to describe myself, I lead with "I dance..." I'm not a pro (my boobs pretty much guaranteed that I wouldn't be - I developed big and early, even though I was a stick) but, like this quote says, it touched me forever. There are few things I love more.
(I have another hat in the works at the moment... it's almost done. It has ears. And a chin strap.)
