Waiting for Santa








Well, I have just about the SWEETEST 4 Year Old who ever roamed the planet! His name is Tiger, and this was THE year that he REALLY remembered Christmas from last year, and absolutely could not wait for the day to arrive.
We put our tree up a week before the big day. And he decided that instead of falling asleep on my arm, which he has done almost everynight since he was born, that he would sleep on the couch.
Well, as the big day drew closer, he started to fall asleep on the floor....looking up at the twinkling lights of our 10 foot tree.


After this particular night, he woke up cuddled under the tree with his head on the tree skirt.

Busy Busy and health!

Well, I can happily say that this is my most busy year ever, since I have been developing Dreamin Bohemian. I have been working from sun up to sun down, painting, sewing, and getting my kids to where they need to be...oh yeah, and getting to my work outs as well.
As some of you may know, I have been working on my weight for about 2 and a half years now. How much have I lost, you ask? Well, not very much...I have gained muscle...LMAO...which, ok, that is good...but still, I want this weight to COME OFF. So, I started seeing Dr Price...She is an AWESOME Lady! The food plan is reasonable, but here is the deal...She finds out the issues behind not being able to lose the weight. A couple of my issues were #1, being Insulin Resistant, on my way to having diabetes. My body doesn't process sugar correctly...another issue was hypo Thyroid...Which kills any metabolism. Well, the good news is, after supplimenting the thyroid, those numbers are in balance now....so it should be working properly. Next is getting that blood sugar down. Here is my theory...once that is in check, the weight should just drop right off of me. (I am REALLY HOPING THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS) I have been working sooooo hard and more consistantly than I ever have at my health. It has to start paying off!
Some other perks to Dr Price, is that I have been able to get my emotions in check going off of antidepressants and getting my neuro transmitters supplimented correctly. Ok, I am sure some of this sounds pretty boring, but I am really feeling good about seeing the results of all this hard work.
If you would like to learn about Dr Price...here is her website... www.nutritionaldirection.com

If you happen to be one of my customers waiting on an order, please don't give up on me, it is coming soon! I promise!! ;)
Until next time...

Accents

This is interesting...I got this off of my buddy Cheryl's Daughter's Blog...I have lived in Texas 28+ years and still....

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North
 

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The Midland
 
The Northeast
 
Philadelphia
 
The South
 
The West
 
Boston
 
North Central

The Mountain!




I am embarking on a new venture. Ever heard of Canton, Texas? THE CANTON? Ever Been there? Ok, now, if you have been to Canton...ever been to THE MOUNTAIN?



This is my third month, on November 1st-4th to sell my wares in Canton at the Famous First Monday Trade Days. It is soooo much fun! Alot of work, but the kind of work that is hard, but easy! LOL



Anyway, Come and see me on Blackstone Trail, not quite half way up the mountain.



Here are some pictures of my shop there. I am hoping to expand one day, and own my own building, but as with everything in life...all in good time.

Up and Down



Well, I must say, that I am still not used to this blogging thing. I have no clue what to say about anything!


I guess I can start with what I have been up to once again. I have been sewing blankets, buying fabric, and painting a little bit.


Trying to figure out new ways to market myself. (aren't we all?) and well, only to get dropped on my head once more.


One of my best friends has left the scene. One of My businesses has hit a plateau and yet the other business ended as quickly as it started. Why is it, when you KNOW with all of your heart, what you are supposd to do with your time and energy, is it so hard to keep going with it at times? It just doesn't make sense!


Anyway...Here is something I listed today. I love these! BUt I love painting and drawing mermaids. I guess we will see what happens with them. You can check them out at this link...

I have also been scouring the web for Indy Artists and Crafters. Man, I have been in a whirl wind life of my own, and now am so inspired by so many people I have been finding on the internet. I don't know why I didn't realize they were here! So much to learn and so many people to meet!

Midcities Antique Mall

I am so excited, I finally got pictures taken of my boutique booth in the MidCities Antique Mall in Hurst, Texas. I had been working pretty hard to get it looking a little more cohesive....mostly with my own work, but I do have work of other artist friends and designers as well.
Please let me know what you think....My hubby says...THATS ALOT OF PINK...LOL...but it is mostly little girls stuff and I wanted it pink....afterall, I have three boys, 4 including hubby, so I think it is only fair!

Well Well Well

Can't believe with as much as I am at this computer, I haven't been blogging religiously, I guess I just can't get used to the fact that whoever can read what I write, and what if I look back and wonder WTH did I write THAT?
LOL...Well, I haven't gotten to design much new stuff in clothing lately, tho I have done tons since I posted the last design....I started homeschooling my kids and have opened a boutique in an antique mall. Mid Cities Antique Mall in Hurst Texas. I have sold a few things there, but not enough yet, so yesterday was devoted to painting the furniture and cases that I have been meaning to paint, to get them up in the mall and get my booth beautified! It is getting there....just like everything else, it takes time. Why is that so hard? LOL
Also have a huge show coming up at the end of April. It is in LA and tho I thought I would get to be there, Mateo has sort of put a damper on that idea. It is expensive, yes, but has soooo much potential. I will be there with my art and in spirit as the few people that will be there running the show, are working their booties off! ;) WHo knows, maybe by then, things will turn around and I will get to go to it. It is called Baby Celebration.
Umm, what else is happening? Just trying to keep up with ome of the latest ins and outs of children's clothing. If anyone has any ideas of what they would like to see out there, give me a holler, as I love new and fresh ideas to ponder and experiment with. OK, that last sentence sounded really southern...LOL...

Lots going on!


I have had so much happening lately, but wanted to share a few designs I finished this week.

One of them in a Day of the Dead design painted on size 3t jeans. They really turned out cute! Some do not like skulls on children's wear, but they are so popular at the moment!

Here is a picture...
I must add that the skulls on here are from some fabric supplied by my customer, I did not design them, but I am not sure what the fabric line is called.
