I'm writing just a quick post today to let you know that I will be closing down this blog shortly.  I have opened up my new website and my blog is right there on my website.  It's much easier for me to keep up to date that way with everything being all in one place.  I also find that webpage much easier to navigate and create.  I hope you will all follow me over at my new website and blog!

I'm looking for input on the new site.  What can I do to make it better?  Let mee know what you all think!  =)

Good Day To All!

Hello all blog followers and fans!

I've been MIA for quite some time and I must apologize for my absence.  I've dearly missed the interaction on my business page!  I took a break to help relieve some stress and to help me get back on track.  This seems to be taking longer then I had originally thought!

In this time I have started up a small animal rescue with a good friend.  I run the bird portion, and she runs the small critter portion.  It's working out quite well and I really love doing it!  As you know I also have my own personal pets.  I have cockatiels.  I have a breeding pair who are sitting on eggs now.  They are both inexperienced and it hasn't been going well for them so I'm hoping for the best!  Our website is:

I've been wanting to take my business in a slightly different direction.  I've been designing some of my own personal patterns as I'm sure some of you are aware of.  This has been very slow going for me for a few reasons.

I feel cleaning must come before I can sit down and knit or crochet.  That way my family can feel relaxed and my son can have a clean place to play (and make messy again).  I have gotten severely behind in my cleaning as of late because I have been rather sick because...  I'm 12 weeks pregnant! =) Along with this news comes the 'morning sickness' which I much prefer to term as 'any-time-of-the-day-or-night-sickness'.  This is a constant feeling for me (although quite mild).  It's just strong enough to make me get VERY little accomplished!

I have been feeling much better this past week and I've managed to get my place back into shape.  It's not perfect, but it will do.  This and my rescue keep me busy!  But now that I'm caught up on housewife duties and feeling more like myself again, I hope to get back on track with my business.

I will be holding regular crochet and knitting lessons (please email me for details and to sign up -  I will still be taking a small amount of orders and I will be working on designing more patterns.  I'm always open to suggestions on what to design next!  And of course I will do my best to keep up on my blog (once a month).

New Adventures

I've been having a great time over the summer so far.  I've been keeping myself busy for sure.  I was able to sneak in a few custom orders, and design a few of my own patterns, and even get them on paper and out of my head!  I sent them off to testers so they will be released 'officially' soon.

I have a bunch of new items coming into my shop that I'm so very excited about.  They are at my most wonderful photographers place anxiously awaiting their turn to get their pictures done.  I hope you will all love my new items as much as I enjoy making them.  Once they are done at Middle of July Photography, I will be posting them on facebook as well as Etsy.

My baby birdies are now 8 weeks old and are ready to go to their new homes.  They are just stunning and such sweet hearts!  If anyone is interested, I'm asking $50.  You will be getting a truly wonderful bird.  Please email me if interested.

I am so so very excited about my next adventure.  I will be taking SPINNING lessons and eventually purchasing my very own spinning wheel.  I can not express to you how excited I am about this.  I've been loosing sleep and just can't wait to start this new journey in my life.  BUT!  Bills must be paid first right?  (Oh the joys of being an adult huh?)  So, a little debt repayment, and a little saving later and I'll be able to start!

So, to all my wonderful fans out there! - I have a referral contest going on right now, so hurry and get those referrals coming in!  The busier I am the sooner I can start spinning!  HURRY and GO!  :)

Update On What I've Been Up To :)

Hello Everyone!

It's been a long time!  So I will give you all an update :)

I recently held my 1000 fan celebration.  I had an auction to raise funds for Southern Ontario Animal Rescue.  This rescue helped me out so much with getting my wonderful dog healthy again (helping to find out what was wrong with her), and finding her a new amazing home.  The lady who runs the rescue (Jan) is truly amazing at what she does, so I wanted give back.  I miss my dog terribly but I know she is in a great home thanks to Jan!  With my auction and the vendors involved we were able to donate over $100.  Thank you again to all who were involved!

The month of June has proved to be very trying.  I closed my little shop to custom orders for a few reasons.  I needed to catch up, Canada Post was on strike, I needed time to get some of my pattern designs down on paper, and I need to get working on my top secret project.  Plus I was going away for a few days to Windsor.  The day I got home from Windsor I was supposed to have all four wisdom teeth removed so I wanted some recovery time.  However my surgery was cancelled (for about 6 months).  On the Sunday I was in Windsor I got Bells Palsy.  So half my face is paralyzed.  99% of cases it get's better but it takes a few weeks.  So I'm trying not to get too down about it.

Needless to say I am very glad I have closed my shop for a short time.  It's given me personal time that has been a life saver.  Thank you to all my fans for being so understanding in my need for time off.  I am very much looking forward to coming back with lot's of great new things!

I'm also looking forward to moving this weekend!  We will be the care takers of an income property that my mother has purchased.  So we are upgrading to a 3 (3!!!  3 whole bedrooms!!!) apartment!  This is exciting for me because we are currently in a one bedroom basement apartment.  It's been great but, way way too small for a family of three!  Currently my son has the only bedroom, so my husband and I get to sleep on a futon in the living room.  So...  Not ideal ;)  So I am very much looking forward to having 3 bedrooms!

Also I have breeding pair of cockatiels that have laid and hatched 2 babies!  I am very excited about this.  I have wanted to raise cockatiels for a while now so I'm very very happy about this :)
It's very dirty because the Parents weren't letting me in!
2 Babies barely visible but here's the fam!

Anyway.  I hope you all have enjoyed the read!  I am hoping to have some giveaways on my blog soon.  So suggestions would be great!  :)

New Spring/Summer Ideas?

 Hello everyone!  This is going to be a quick blog today.

I wanted to give everyone a glance at my little family.  I am ever proud of my family.  My son is now almost 3!  I can't believe that.  He is going to be a heart breaker when he grows up.  I realize I may have a biased opinion, but he is a very handsome boy!  Just like his daddy!

I married my husband in August of 2003.  We've been through a lot together and it's only made us stronger.  I'm proud to have him beside me!

Anyway.  I'm curious to what others have in mind.  I'm looking for new ideas for Spring and Summer to keep me busy!  Suggestions are very much welcome!  Hope you all enjoyed the quick look at my family!
