Etsy Store Now Open For Business!

Well, it looks like I have completed one of my 2007 resolutions before the year has even begun! I have just opened my Etsy store. My store location is: I will be adding more in the days and weeks ahead, but am very excited that I was able to take this step!

Where does the time go?

All of a sudden, Christmas is over and New Year's is just around the corner. It always seems that the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas moves in the blink of an eye.

I have been extremely busy the last month, finishing Christmas presents and spinning yarn on my new wheel. I participated in the annual craft fair at my office and sold my first skein of hand-spun yarn!

Unfortunately, all my fiber-related creative work has come to a grinding halt this past week. The day of Glenn's concert, I fell and popped my left thumb. I was able to put it back, but the damage was done. I had my friend Tonya bring me to the ER, and after waiting about five hours, I found out I had "soft tissue damage" needed to follow up with an osteo specialist. It looks like I have some tendon damage and am now in a soft brace. Sadly, I haven't been able to spin or crochet since my fall.

I am, however, working on other "creative" projects for 2007, including a self-published crochet pattern book and an Etsy shop. I am also toying with the idea of doing a podcast series.

So, I wish that 2007 be a positive, creative time for all with plenty of time to crochet and spin!
