Cleo in Saint George

Cleo couldn't come with us to Zions, but she enjoyed Saint George nonetheless!

My Color

I saw that Crafty Moose Crafts had taken a quiz to find out what color she is ( you can check out her blog at ). I thought it would be fun and I found out that my color is GREEN! Haha! Who would've thought? I have always been a 'green' person, green books, green paintings, green is my favorite! It is a known fact that I subconsciously pick green books off of a shelf more often than any other color. It is official, green is my color.

I just received some Merino yarn in the mail yesterday with my dyes! I spun one skein this morning and dyed it with my Cochineal, IT IS BEAUTIFUL!! It is a bright pink and amazingly soft. When it dries I will take pictures to share, but it is beautiful!!!

Color vote!

Hey I need your help! We are NOT voting for favorite logo... that will come later, but please help me by voting for favorite color scheme for each design. If you can please put them in order of your favorite to your least favorite for each design. Thank you thank you thank you so much for doing this! When I make final copies I will have you vote for your favorite logo! Exciting, I know!

Laying in bed..

Last night I couldn't fall asleep. I was just laying in bed while my mind was going 100 mph. I had so many ideas and thoughts that my brain would not shut down for some well needed rest. I also had a strange dream... anyway, here are some of the thoughts that went through my head last night-
1- I should make a label name for my etsy products
2- I like Coldplay... alot
3- I wish I could knit a sweater in an hour (impossible you say? yes.)
4- I should do the laundry before leaving town
5- I need to re-take my product pictures
6- I should re-take my product pictures when I am in Saint George
7- How am I going to pack my paintings good enough to send back to Sacramento
8- Why does it take so stinkin' long for my light yellow paint to dry.
9- I need to buy a headband, just a plain black one.
10- I can't wait to get my fiber to spin! Gah! Exciting!!!

So there is a sneak peak of what goes inside that funny mind of mine, hope you enjoyed it! Oh, and if you have any ideas for any of my thoughts please post a comment! Thanks!

Wool rolling in!

Yesterday I bought a pound of merino wool online. I am so excited to recieve it! I also bought some natural dyes (dyestuffs made from natural plant and animal matter, NO ACIDS). The moment I get them I will post again! I can't wait to get more hand-spun yarn on etsy! I am also working on writing a pattern for my Cloche, would it be interesting to you if I sold the pattern on etsy?

Pictures of Cloche!

Here are some pictures of the Cloche I knitted. It is so wonderfully comfortable! It is like a beanie, but stylish! I posted it on my etsy store, but it is so fun to try on I am tempted to keep it for myself! I think I might do another and change the design a tad. I have had this hat sitting around for a week now and it has taken me this long to finally get some pictures of it!

I have some very cute items but I don't want to get dressed to take pictures of them. So it will be posted...even later. Shame.
