My Macro Textures

I know it's been awhile since my last post. Just not a whole lot going on. I took one of my kitties to the vet today because I've been noticing her pacing around when she walks like she's not sure where she is going. And the last week or so have noticed that her eyes are dilated all the time. Turns out she is almost totally blind. They are doing some blood work on her to see if it's her kidneys or heart failure. They said there isn't a whole lot you can do. She is 16 years old. I've had many cats in my life and never one that has gone blind. It's amazing how well she does get around our house. So they will be calling me tomorrow with the blood work results.

I've noticed a lot of gals have been posting pics using their macro setting on their cameras. is my collection.

Another Productive Day!

Today didn't have to babysit and got a ton done! Made up these cute little Halloween pumpkin gourd ornies and have them listed in my etsy shop.

Getting dark and cloudy again as I type this. Another storm coming. We had one rain storm early today that flooded the street out in front of our house. Since they redid the whole street in our neighborhood last year it floods all the time. Then the city has to come out and unplug the storm drains. Very irritating for how much we had to pay for the new street!

Had fun yesterday with my granddaughter. She likes to spend time in my sewing room. Most of the time she likes to look at Sesame Street videos on youtube. She has her favorites that I play all the time. She had fun playing in a box that I get fiberfill in and thought it made for a cute picture. Try not to look very close at my messy sewing room. LOL

I'm in the Sunday paper for my Etsy shop!!

I'm so excitied! It's finally in the paper after they did a photo shoot a month ago. They did an awesome job on a story of my mom's etsy shop and mine. I had no idea that it was in the paper until my mother in law called. I hadn't gotten around to reading the paper yet today. Lately I've had a bad habit of storing up the papers and then reading them all at once. Here is a link to the article online.

Primitive Mini Witch Pumpkin Ornies & Crow Doll

I cannot believe how much I've gotten done in the last 2 days and even had to take time out to take my mom to the doctors. And I've been living with a sore throat and feeling kind of crappie. When you are on a roll, you are on a roll. Maybe I'll put up my legs tonight and watch a movie. So I just listed these cute mini pumpkins that are now in my etsy shop.

And yesterday finished up another crow doll and have her listed in my etsy as well. I just love the fabric for her dress. Saw it in Ben Frankin Crafts and just had to buy some. They just got in their Halloween fabric.

Oh...and also working on another set of bat ornies. The ones I listed a few days ago sold already. Me is busy as a bee and loving it! :)

Primitive Halloween Brown Bat Ornies

I first made these cute little guys a couple of years ago and they were a big hit when I sold them on ebay. They are now listed in my etsy shop waiting to find a new home. I beginning to wish it was fall with the way the weather has been the last couple of days. We had to turn on the air on Friday. The humidity has been terrible along with temps in the 80's. We've hardly had to use air conditioning this year with the cooler then normal temps. I guess I can't complain, I'm sure it's going to save us a bunch on the electric bill this summer.

Caught in the Act!

Today I walk into my sewing/computer room and what do I find!? A squirrel all cozy in one of my bird feeders eating up all the sunflower seeds! I guess it's time to trim the tree branches. I've been noticing that they are almost touching the house now. Bonsai sure did have fun watching him. I had to open and close the window a couple of times to get him to get out! LOL
