I got my soap from Savor on Saturday which made me very happy indeed!
Also, my mother got her licorice caramels and she loves them so much she's been doling them out one-a-day. What is also really nice is that the caramels are large and are a few bites each! I'll definitely be back to Earcmra's shop for more!
I've been busy lately with my "boys" who are sick with head colds that include fevers; that always makes me nervous! Fortunately, I've managed to stay well so far so that I can take care of them even though they are both really tough - my son certainly takes after his daddy who usually doesn't complain until he's ER bound!
As far as craftiness goes, I've got another 4 inch hoop to finish with the V2 version of moss and three 5 inch hoops to complete (one of each variety). I've also been working on V2 versions of all of my moss hair accessories and I hope to be done with those by the end of the week. However, we are about to move, so it's going to be a really busy two weeks ahead (another reason I hope to not get sick)! We'll just have to see how things go with updating the shop!
Here's what the V2 moss hair accessories look like while "in process."
I got the Moss for your Wall and Lichen for your Wall work done! Yay! It was a bit tricky, but I used a craft glue for them and they turned out really nice. I plan on posting them tomorrow, like I wanted, and I'll post images of the completed work here too!
Ooh, and I've been eying Earcmra's caramels for sometime and I decided to purchase some for my mother because she enjoys black licorice and Earcmra has Black Licorice Caramels! I bought a small amount because my mom's the only one in the house that likes black licorice:
Earcmra's caramels look so mouth-watering which is only helped by the incredible and original photograpy. Here's another variety in her shop:
Vanilla Caramel. And, a caramel that is something I wouldn't have thought of...
Mmmm...Pomegranate Caramel! Also, check out Earcmra's shop for Pumpkin Caramels and new Chocolate Caramel!
We got back from visiting family LATE on Thursday and we're getting back into the swing of things. We did go to Sea World with family and my son had the most fun petting Bat rays (they feel like Jell-o under water) and the tide pool area where he got to touch Sea stars, a Sea snail, a Sea cucumber (my favorite as a child) and a Sea urchin. We also had lots of fun visiting family and friends and we miss them already!
When we got back (my partner stayed home because he had to work), I noticed that we were almost out of soap from Savor! If you recall, I originally got some soap from Savor for Father's Day for my partner. I then got some for my birthday. So, this morning, I decided to get some more...these are my picks (all new to me):
This one is called Black Honey with the scent of black tea and honey; can it get any better? I think not!
Creme Brulee...just look at that yummy sugar topping!
Lastly, Snow Cat, with the scent of Scandinavian cloudberries!
Now for crafty news, I decided not to take the new embroidery hoop work with me because I figured I wouldn't have time to experiment with them and I was right! So, my goal is to now get them done to list in the shop for Monday. Goodness, I really want these done so that I can make some more!
My son and I will be leaving tomorrow (and returning on the 19th) to visit family in Southern California. It will be nice to see friends and family. We are planning on making a longer visit with my partner in February. While there, we are planning on going to Sea World; I'm sure my son and my niece will LOVE that! I may do some posting while gone, AND I may take my new stash of glue with me for experimentation...ugh...I wish that new projects didn't take so long sometimes!
I've mentioned before that I LOVE all the new, rad, prefab homes on the market (click on the architecture category for more), and here's another great modular dwelling. You can make this room in about a week for about $1500 (it would make a great studio); the plans can be purchased (scroll down a bit) from Readymade Magazine's website:
There is also an article on this cute little structure on Readymade's website.
This room was designed by Edgar Blazona, and (this is new to me) he has a website with other modular structures that are rad!
