Feeling Blue...

Unfortunately I've been out of the loop for almost 1 year now, I have been too busy working to really get my hands dirty, but It's always there, just on the edge of my mind, waiting to get out.
Thank you to all who have been looking for me, I truly apprieciate that. Now that the Day Job is slowing down, just a little I hopefully can get back to my ol' self and get some things moving again...I do have a few things going on over at The Morsel, so check it out in about a week or so, and I do have some Christmas things in the works, but it is moving slowly.
I havent forgot about you gals over at Etsy Cottage Style, I go over and take a peek every once and a while, just for some inspiration and daydream time...

Off the Beatin Path...

I have been up to no good of course, not paying any attention to my clay, its just getting hard down in the studio :(
I have been neglecting my new business adventure that is Black Kat, only to be on the Motorcycle!!!
I know, I know, I should be responsible, and follow through with ALL my obligations, but I'm sorry I cant, when I'm not at the day job (yuck) I am on the bike, I.. have become addicted, I cant help it, all I want to do is go places on the bike, and I totally blame this cutie, Yes, Thats my Hubby, BUT its now his fault that I am now a biker!! I absolutely LOVE it, and I am hooked, the more I ride the better I'm getting, so Thank You, Mark!! Yay!! One of these days, (I suppose when its raining) I can get back to doing whatever it is I should be re: responsibilities and then back on the bike!!

Where has the time gone???

Hello all!! I cant believe its the first day of Spring already, this marks the beginning of a really busy weekend for us, Tomorrow is mine and the Hubby's wedding anniversary, (Let's see if he remembers) its 12 years and we usually go away for the weekend sometime throughout the year.
Then its my oldest son's B-day on Sunday!! 14 whew! How fast did that go??? He doesn't need me anymore and knows everything there is to know about life, so I guess my job is done WHEW!! That only took 14 years, I must be good!! Ha, Ha LOL!!!
In all seriousness, it does go by too fast, so if any of you out there have little ones, PLEASE take advantage of this time right now, they are only babies for such a short time, and pretty soon, they become teens, it is much harder than I thought, and I now know how right my Mother was. I say that more and more these days...
Now to change the subject...
I am embarking on new and exciting adventure, Opening my own baking business, after all I do know my way around the kitchen (Day Job) and baking is a secret passion of mine, that has been dying to get out for a few years now.
I have all the Business licences filed and the DBA paperwork is done, I am starting small setting up shop at our local farmers market every Saturday during the summer, it is going to be hard with keeping the dredded day job, but... anything worth doing is hard right?? I think this is exactly what I need to be doing and that is a good feeling!!
Next, I am going to change up the blog a little bit or even start a new one dedicated to the business,I will begin next week on one of my days off, I most likely will be starting another blog, named after the business, but I will reveal that when I finally get my ducks or should I say cookies in a row!!

Found this little beauty at Teamsugar, its a pretty cool site, I dont go there often, but I thought this was pretty inspiring!!!
Thats all for now, still looking forward to a swap I've entered for Easter, and I will be back from time to time, my inner artist comes out to play once in a while so I will post whatever I am up to with that, oh yeah and also I will be setting up a lot of cool art kits in my Etsy shop soon, I need to destash a little bit, so I will be keeping yall up to date with that too!! Whew!! I better get movin'!!

Love is in the Air...

Hello to all, I havent been on since before Christmas but I wanted to make sure when I came on to post it was about something and not just the usual update to let you know I was still alive but feeling uninspired Blah,blah,blah!!
I have been working on putting two Valentine Swaps together, and I think they came out really cute!! I'm not really the Valentine type, I mean the Hubby and I dont really get each other anything and I dont really care weather I get candy and roses or not. We like to get each other things and do things for each other throughout the whole year, so Feb. 14 is just another day in Love...... (yuck right??)
To be honest with you I have been feeling very uninspired lately and I suppose its just a case of the January Blues, I get them every year an then something happens, I dont know if its the anticipation of Spring, or the Birdhouse out side my Kitchen window, or maybe even that the days seem to be getting a little longer, I start to feel antsy to Create something!! I believe Thumper called it "Twitterpated".
I will be working a lot the next few weeks and getting all my ideas together for a new blog I have been wanting to create but never made a priority also getting so many of the projects I have started but never finished!!
Here are some photos of the little Valentine Boxes I made for the swaps, I did one for PWGL and Jeanne called it "eye Candy" so I took that idea and went with it I think they came out fabulous, and they are low in fat and have 0 calories!!

I altered 2 actual candy boxes with really pretty scrapbook papers and glass glitter...

Then I filled the little paper baking cups with all of my favorite pink and red Valentiny kinds of "eyecandy".

Buttons,Beads,Baubles,Ribbon,Paper Flowers,Pom Poms,and even some little Vintage Crystal Hearts made their way into there!!

A closer look...

Another closer look... oooooooooooooooooooo I LOVE those red paper roses, I dont know if they are vintage or not but I've had them in my craft stash for years...

Tied up with a bow and ready to go!!
Hope to hear from some of you guys!! It's been a while since I've chatted with any of my online community of friends! I will be adding something like these to my Etsy shop within a couple of weeks, maybe not all with a Valentine theme though!!
