good things

Some things I can't get enough of for Fall 2011.

1) Sam and Zoe's. Seriously, Nashville, I miss you so much, and my favorite coffee shop and artisan salad stop. I think I've almost figured out what all the acronyms for the S.A.W.F. salad are. So far I have strawberry, avocado, and walnuts. Is F for Feta?

2) Drinking any sort of hot beverage from my new mug that I bought at the GRADD festival for myself. It's the pretty green one in the top photo.

3) Crocheting. I have a new fox wrap that seems to be pretty well liked, I'm just hoping I can sell some during the cold weather!

4) Apple Chamomile tea from Twigings. It's seriously the most calming delish tea I've ever found.

5) The Windows phone answer to Instagram, Bubblegum. I wish it had more filters, but it is seriously fun to play with.

We're moving on into the Christmas season, so ready or not, here comes some snow and sparkle! I could deal with some cool weather here to get me motivated! All these days in the 80s are making me mopey. You heard me mother nature, middle Tennessee is over summer time!

this is one coyote who's still howling

When mother nature gives you zits, use a filter!

I really cannot believe what a great sales weekend this was for me. I feel truly blessed, and am so thankful for everybody who showed interest in my product, or bought something! Skittish Coyote is something I just have not had the heart to let die, which to be honest sounded pretty good during the economic downturn in 2008. I'm so glad I haven't given up on it. So if you're looking at this blog from my business cards, thank you thank you thank you!

Please don't laugh at the blog too much, it's still in the development stage. ;-) Making this blog a place to be is a real goal of mine, it's just a matter of reaching a point financially where I can hire a web designer. Because if there's anything I learned in my web design class in college, it's that I sure don't want to do it myself!

What's great about this past craft fair is that I didn't even have all of my ideas present, which pumps me up about getting back in the studio to sew! I have a sketchbook full of things to do in the coming year, including a stuffed animal line, pillow line, and handmade necklaces from copper and silver. I figure they taught me a few things about jewelry in art school, I might as well use them!

None of this would have been possible without my mom though. If I had known crocheting and sewing were the tools to success I would have saved my parents a lot of money and hassle. I love them!
