Why on earth did mother make her wear this silly dress to the party? How is she supposed to hunt for bugs and play football all covered in lace. Mothers are not always practical.

Happy weekend everyone!

Etsy and Buyer Privacy Concerns

Etsy, the site in which I currently sell my work is changing a lot.  The recently have recieved some bad press in regards to buyer privacy issues.   Making all buyers now searchable by user name or real name on the site.   They recently tried to combat this by making all feedback private and making it clear when you sign up that you have a choice in whether to display your real name or not on your user account.

I want my buyers to feel confident and secure in making a purchase from me.  If you in anyway do not feel comfortable with registering or creating an account on Etsy to make a purchase,   I ask that you please contact me through my blog or my facebook fanpage . 

Now, done with the yuckky stuff:)  Meet Melissa, shes looking for a new home...her current one is not the best.

Helen and Rachel

Both of these gals have sold but I thought I'de share them here on my blog anyway.   The girls tend to get a little jealous if they don't get equal air time.

Carnival 2011

Another Carnival season comes to a sad end.  The magic has been dispersed, the beads have been thrown and caught and the glitter and wigs have been put away for now.

Unfortunately I had to sit Mardi Gras day out this year, my RA keeping me on the couch.  No worries,  I 've learned to take pleasure in watching my family revel in the celebration and that brings warmth to my heart and a smile to my face.

I love that my daughter, NoraLeigh has taken after her mama and works weeks in advance on her costume and preperation for the magic of Mardi Gras day, so if I'm not there in body I know I'm there in spirit.  She is so creative and inspired, I like to think perhaps that is a bit of myself rubbing off on her.  She inspires me everyday.

So it's back to work for me, with a renewed inspriation and a touch of Mardi Gras magic to motivate me.

Marcy wishes they would move back to the city, there is no one to play with out here in the boondocks.
