Handmade Scarf

I made this scarf on Wednesday when I was home sick. I really like it. I am thinking about making some to sell in my etsy shop.

It’s not the best photo cause I just layed it on the scanner. I’ll try to get some better pics tomorrow. I have a few other things to take some pictures of too. Like this cute little bunny plushy that I made tonight!

Time Flies

I saw this picture on someone elses blog today. It was made by a kid using a kitchen timer, some batteries and some paper wings! Very creative.  I have really wanted to keep up with my blogging. It is one of my goals this year.  I just can’t seem to find the time.  Well truthfully sometimes I am afraid that what I write will be really boring to every one else.  But then I realize that I am really writing for me.  So I am re-commiting to my goal to post more. I would LOVE to post everyday but realistically I don’t see that happening. So…I want to try to commit to at least 2 times per week.  Let’s hope I can do it!

I am in LOVE with etsy.com! It is a great site where you can sell all your supercool handmade goodies.  I have been selling on etsy about 2 months now and it is so fun! Lately I have been making ipod cozies.  Today I made this really cute Owl one.

Etsy has so much crafty goodness that I wish I could buy it all up! If you haven’t had the chance to see this site yet you MUST go visit soon! It is just too cool.  You can visit my site by clicking here. http://willowartist.etsy.com.

A friend from maryjanesfarm.com requested that I post the Christmas Punch Recipe that I mentioned in my Christmas post so here it is!  Hope you all enjoy! It’s good any time of the year.

Christmas Punch 

1 lg. plastic jug of Hawaiian Punch

1 lg. can of Pineapple Juice

1 can of frozen lemonade (pink or yellow)

1 Bottle of Ginger ale

Sliced Citrus Fruit

Ice Ring 

Mix together all ingredients in a punch bowl. Add ice ring and float slices of fruit.  For an added kick, Adults can add a splash of rum to their glass before pouring the punch!  Save the Hawaiian Punch jug as it makes a great place to store the leftovers.  Refrigerate any leftovers.

It’s Raining, It’s pouring!

Its a wet and rainy saturday.  Not much to do today but sit around and listen to the rain pitter patter on the roof.  Oh well I cant really complain. I kindof like days when there is really nothing better to do than just sit around.  They happen so rarely and it is nice when they do.  Monday will be here in a blink of an eye so I think for right now I’ll just sit here and enjoy the simple solitude of a rainy saturday.

A poem about rain from www.poemhunter.com

Rain Rain Rain
  Rain Rain Rain,
Up above from the skies
u come,
As drops of joy
As drops of sorrow
As a shower of blessing from the heavens.Rain Rain Rain,
Pitter patter pitter patter
on the window panes,
thunder and lightning fill up the skies
creating an orchestral symphony.

Rain Rain Rain,
With wind, sun and clouds,
seven colors u bring together
and joy in our hearts.

Rain Rain Rain
A miracle to a drought
A curse when in glut,
tiny silver crystals trickles from up above.
