Out of the (Broom) Closet  

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Hey, so lots of folks know Denise and I are practicing witches ( or are wiccan , of you prefer). We love this time of year, and one of our favorite holidays is coming up. Samhain is on October 31, and is the witches new year. It is also believed that the veil that separates the living and the dead is at its thinnest. What fun!

We always take our vacation at that time of year, as we get to celebrate and really enjoy the season. Also a fun time to drive down to the valley and see the pumpkin people. Denise absolutely looses her mind and you almost pee your pants laughing at.... er, with her.

I've always loved Halloween as a kid, and I love any reason to dress up. I miss the dress up day at work, which makes sort of sad. Sort of. I prefer the classic costumes. You know, Viking, Devil, Vampire and Zombie. Denise likes to dress up like a Turkish lady, whatever that is.

To clarify, I was in fifth grade and wanted to be nothing other than a Turkish lady, and woe to those who looked at me and said "What a cute little gypsy". I was a TURKISH LADY!

And for those who don't know, the Pumpkin People are simply the BEST THING EVER!!!! A whole town that sets up scenes of pumpkin 'scarecrows' in selected themes. It is my favourite part of the whole year!!!

So Want to Shop for Fabric

Annapolis Valley

It's that time of year, our favorite time of year, autumn. Denise and I LOOOOOVE the fall. We always take vacation in the fall, usually a few days before Samhain and we always take at least a week, maybe more.

I so can't wait for vacay. We love to rent a car and drive down to the Annapolis Valley. It's always a great time in the valley. It's so beautiful, and the people are so nice, and
the towns are so cute. No wonder our goal is to both live there. It is just blissful.

So, I'm now wanting to get some money to shop for new autumnal-ish fabric. Here are some of my faves right now.

A Different Kind of Celtic Earring

So I've not blogged in a bit, been super busy with many sales. Yay! I'd just like to extend our thanks to all those who have supported us thus far. You guys are awesome. Hugs.

We are very excited, as we are working on more new things for our store. I'm too excited. No really, I jumped out of bed yesterday to get to work on a new idea I suddenly had. I am NOT a jump out of bed person. Why do you think this post is so short? Ha!

Will be letting everyone know when the new things are hitting the store.

Silly Cats  

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

A Father's Day surprise for Bob.

Cats are silly. They don't like to think they are, but we all know it's a fact. They are the biggest silly willys ever.

Our cats are particularly silly. Vanian is my cat, and the man of the house. He's also white and has actual bun shaped buns. That is very silly. Along with the usual cat-like zanyness of tail chasing and sister stalking, he's terrified of socks and shoes. Yeah, only when there are no feet in them. He once jumped three feet sideways because there where socks on the floor... and had been there all morning... and hadn't moved. Weirdo. He'll walk by either socks or shoes and will just reach out and hit them to ensure they know their place and do not attack. I guess.

Solstice is Denise's cat, and is the black girl. She is the silly, bossy girl. She tells Denise what to do. She meows very loudly when she wants Denise to get up and come upstairs and get her for bed. When she feels Denise should wake up, she'll meow at her. That's typical cat behaviour. But she also brings Denise cat toys when she's sleeping, in case she gets bored.

Well, now Vanian is wanting to be fed, and if he doesn't get fed right away, he pretends to pass out. He'll meow a long, whiny meow, and then flop (loudly) onto his side and look sad.

Silly cats indeed.

New Bags  

Saturday, September 5, 2009

Punky Pink and Purple Pretty Bag

I'm really super excited about my new bags. Yes, I am tooting my own horn, but I really am very excited. I've made two new totes ( one will be listed today, yay! ), and I'm starting a brand new bag today.

My new bag is called 'Punky Pink and Purple Pretty Bag', and I so want one. I love my totes. I love that they are reversible and have pockets. And they are cotton. I just love making bags, and I can't wait to do that full-time. I'm always thrilled when it's the weekend, as I get to sew!

Tie a Choker Round My Neck Necklace

Also, very exciting, I took the best photo I have ever taken. Man, when we started the store, my photos SUCKED!!! But now, wow, I love this photo. Really jealous Denise looks so cool.
