The Sun'll Come Out . . . and So It Did

Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers for my grandmother and Mother-in-law after my post yesterday. As the day wore on, the clouds (figuratively and literally) began to part and everything seemed a little brighter.
Mawmaw was able to get around the house some. As well, Pat and I were able to visit mom. She looked so much better than either of us expected. Wonderful!

In addition to all that good news, I was able to get my craft desk cleaned off and actually focus enough to get some work done.

While I know that I haven't put anything in the shop in a while, I assure you that I have been creating. I have a basket of items that just need pictures and descriptions. I even completed a few items this week amid all the other drama (shopping included.) Take a look at these three pieces.

As well, there are still a few works in progress on my desk that I plan on tackling just as soon as I get done here.
Since I've barely made a dent in my blog feed reader, I have no more Halloween links (though the absence of them is a little eerie isn't it, bwahahaha [that's supposed to be my evil laugh.]) ANYWAY. . .Instead, here are just a few other links that I've been saving up. Perhaps I can get back to a regular link posting schedule (whatever that is.) soon :
  • Parrot surfing, that's all I'm gonna say. You just have to see it for yourself!
  • Back to the Future was probably one of my favorite movies as a pre-teen. I had a SERIOUS crush on Michael J Fox. I love seeing him in this video doing so well, despite his Parkinsons. This is one of the best interviews I've seen of him in a while. Makes me happy.
  • Clear clutter with a station for transient items. 
  • And in the spirit of Halloween, check out this childhood fears photography set. WARNING, these are pretty freaky and disturbing. A few of them actually bother me a little. Please pay head if you do not like scary images. However, that being said, they are still wickedly awesome.
 Now to get to work on those other items and eventually take pictures and maybe even list some stuff in the Crafty Hope Etsy Shop. Anyway, one thing at a time.
I'll leave you with wishes for a
Happy Halloween
May all your Trick-or-treat bags be filled with chocolate and not toothbrushes!


  1. Thinking of you with everything going on with your family. :-(
    Congrats on cleaning away the studio clutter! What a serious accomplishment and I know I sure wish I had a desk that looked like that!
    The childhood fears photos were really disturbing...a bit too graphic for me too!
    Hope you had a nice Halloween!

  2. Thanks so much for the thoughts. Things are starting to get back to normal now in regards to all that, thankfully!!

    There's still plenty of clutter in the studio, I'm just making myself do one section at a time. If I try too look at the room as a whole, the organizing process becomes too overwhelming and won't get done. But, it's a start anyway.

    I did try to warn you about the pictures. I did think they were well done though.

    Thanks for visiting!!!


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.

Winding down the 100DayProject

I awoke the other day with many thoughts about the 100 Day project and decided to jot them down here to share with you. Some of the bits I g...
