Working On

Here is a sneak peek of what I am working on for my shop. I am trying to center it around cross-stitch now. Something I would like to be know for. *puffs out chest*

The strawberry cake is my own design. I can somewhat draw...besides a stick man and stick woman. I'll be calling this piece, "Let Them Eat Cake".

OH! and to give a little cuteness here is a few pictures of my guinea pigs.

I have no idea what is going on here. Usually they each have there own separate igloos to sleep in. They remind me of teenagers sometimes since they can't be in the same igloo together. My oldest one Ethel(calico guinea pig) would only cuddle and sleep with her sister Lucy when she was alive. I honestly think they were plotting against me.

Then I asked Suzette what they were doing and "plotting", she gave me this answer. Guinea pig way of telling me where to stick it?

I will never know....though latter on I did find some poop that they launched out of there cage....

NOTE: If it looks like they are not being feed because of the bowl there that is not true. They only are feed once every day. They are bored eaters like there mother so I maintain what food they get.

NOTE 2: No guinea pigs were harmed while taking these pictures.

It's So Hard To Say Goodbye

For those that do not know my Uncle passed away on Friday Oct. 11th. He was my dad's brother. I think tears have been shed all over the world this weekend within our family.

My Aunt woke him up along with her daughter, husband, and there child. They said happy Birthday and sang to him. They all left to let him sleep in a bit longer. My aunt went to make coffee. Returning about 20mins later she found him gone. I think the fact that really upsets her is that morning he asked her to stay in bed a little longer. She refused stating she was old and it will only make her feel worse. She is just completely besides herself.

I think it was said later he died of heart failure. I'm not really clear on the details and more then likely will find out when I go out there for this celebration of life. I will have to fly back to Northern, CA this weekend.

There will be no funeral as my Uncle hated them. He will be cremated and we will have a celebration of life. I have never been to one so any advice on what to expect I would love to hear.

What is really shocking is my Uncle wasn't sick for months. My parents talked to him last weekend and he reported no sickness/etc. He was there and now he's gone which I think is a bigger shock to us all. I still can't believe it myself. It brings tears to my eyes whenever I think about it or talk about it.

I will miss my Uncle dearly. RIP Uncle John. You taught me laughter through tears helps to get through things.

Halloween Etsy Update

I just wanted to show the last update for Halloween in my Etsy shop!! Now to finish off my Halloween packages and send those off as well. This month is actually a busy one for me.

Hopefully my boyfriend Nick and I can go apple picking again. I really loved when we went last year. Wall to wall pumpkins and animals. I wasn't thrilled on the prices for picking apples but maybe we can just go to "look".
