The Perfect Sun

I have wanted to take a good photo of Pearl now for awhile. It seems that there is always something off in the photo or the lighting is not the most flattering for her. Well this morning Pearl was sunning herself looking so...well... Pearl like. The camera was in the right spot to grab quick before she moved which happens all the time. She looks so lovely.

Coy Pearl. How do you spell coy? Is that right?

No photoshop, no special lens, just pure sunlight and Pearl.

Busy Little Elves

I would like to thank the busy little overnight elves who finished the face. I think they could improve their stitching skills but I am happy that I do not have to worry about finishing the face.

I made a little Dotee Doll to put into her reversible pouch so she has a companion to accompany her on her journey to her new home. I loved making this little Dotee, it was very fun to make her tiny!

I'm Stuck

I am making this for a friend and I am stuck.

I don't make faces really well. I make clay faces and can stitch a face on a Dotee doll but when it comes to something else I get stuck. I want to get this out in the mail and the last thing is the face. I guess I will "just have to try harder." We will see what happens in the morning. Maybe some little elves with finish it for me. That would be nice.

The wonderful pattern is from Emily's blog Inside a Black Apple. take time to check out her wonderful blog and stop by her Etsy shop too.

Dotee Doll ~ Bloom where your planted!

I love making Dotee Dolls, not because they are quick, easy, or cute (even thought they are) but because I make them with some one in mind. It gives me joy to know that she is stuffed with love, kind thoughts and well wishes with every stitch, and hopefully she will share all the kind thoughts and love that has gone into her in her new home.

Why do you make Dotee dolls?

Creative Orginzation

I have been trying to get more and more organized over the summer. Today I thought of a way to store my thread so I could see it. I have been using this napkin holder for mail, stamps and my address book.

Today I came up with this using knitting needles to hold thread spools and to store the spools that come on a plastic card as well.

Here you can see the back side of the spool caddy. I made a box to fit into the top so I can put the extra thread there. I did not realise how much thread I had and this is a good way to see it and know what is there.

Also, I still do not have my Mac back but I really needed to post, I was going through blogging withdrawals. I am getting used to the PC but still do not like it!

My Mac is still in the ER!

I have photos to show but my Mac is still in the ER. I could try to use Paige's pc to upload the photos but it just seems like it would take too long to learn how to do it on the pc or maybe I am just too stuborn to do it on a pc. Ya, that is it. I really don't want to do it on a pc. Being a Mac lover is complicated or maybe really simple, it has to do more with passion than tecnology. Oh well. Just a few more days and I will be back and have a lot of updating to do. The parts are in for my mac and now it is in the waiting room. I love my Mac.

Faith restored

I took in my computer today to the Apple store to see what was wrong with it. The unknown is the worst part of having a problem with your computer. I was very unhappy when I took in my computer and I have to give Apple credit for great customer service. I will still be without my computer for two weeks or so but it seems that they will be able to fix the problem. Faith restored.

My Mac seems to be dead...

My mac seems to be dead and I do not know when it will be up and running again. It seems like it is a fatal issue. I will be taking it in on Monday and we will see what the people at the GENIUS bar in the Mac Store say. I am not happy right now out computer is not even 3 years old. I would hope this is just a glitch and not a costly or fatal issue.

I am using a PC to give you this update and will not be back until the problem is solved.

Happy creating. I will have a lot to show you when I get everything sorted out.

See you in the blog world...
