Easter Eggs and My New Trunk Show Tackle Box

I am exhausted.  This past weekend was a long one even though it went by really fast.  A friend of mine was having 3 different parties, and I got the chance to attend all three.  So it was an opportunity for 3 different mini-trunk shows.  It was a lot of fun.

I was able to unveil my latest charm creations for Easter.  Eggs!  Pendants and earrings :)  There are still some left.  They range in price from $5 to $15.  Not sure if they will make it to the shop this time around.  Easter is just a few days away.  If you're interested in something just send me a message.

Within the last week or so, I invested in a case so that my finished pieces can travel in style.  At the moment, its still pretty much just a tackle box, but as time goes on it will morph into something more amazing.  A decorated, stylized tackle box!

Ahhh.... I can see it now.  In all of its detailed tackle box glory.
It's going to be epic.  I can feel it.

I have been slacking off. I meant to update this last week, and the week before but time just got away from me and, well, here we are late for updates again. Ah well, no big deal right? Right.

Moving on...

I've been toiling away in my living room the shop.  Getting creative with some square picture jasper beads, and playing around with peace sign charms.  Soon they will be up in the shop ready to be adopted.

Shortly after Christmas, I started working on a hat for my sweet.  I wanted to adjust a pattern I found so it would be workable with this yarn I fell in love with at the craft store.  Silk bamboo.  Its so soft.  Well, I got a book for Xmas that teaches you how to knit anything on your own.  Long story short, I just finished the hat yesterday.  The pattern I had found originally would not work at all with the yarn.  I guess, I basically ended up making my first knitting pattern.  Which I was pretty excited about in the end, because its something I always wanted to accomplish.  I'm so proud of my hat.  I wish I could wear it myself, but I look ridiculous in them.  :)

Finally, today was daylight saving time.  Spring forward.  I am completely thrown off now.  :P  It didn't help that I went to bed late because I drank too much coffee.  But I shouldn't complain too much, it does mean it will be lighter out later and that spring is well on its way now.
