Kitchen, Health and Digital Stamp Update!
I thought I'd stop by with some quick updates! I'm so glad it's just about the weekend!
First the good news! I can walk on my foot now, although I still have problems going down stairs easily. That's partially because of my knees though. I think with a bit of exercise and some heat I'll be right as rain in no time.
Some more good news; I decided to combine some of my digital stamps into sets and offer them at a discounted price. Sometimes people are looking for a theme or a certain style. So, here are the sets that are available so far:
Wet Your Whistle
They are priced differently depending on how much I usually charge for the singles (if they're available as singles). I have another one called "A Little Whimsy" that I am working on. They are priced at about 60- 65% of the price of the singles combined. Check them out in my Etsy Shop!
As for the kitchen -- still waiting. :( Not great news! Getting to be a bee in my bonnet. Good thing I hardly ever put that thing on! Wink wink...
They called me about a 1/2 a week after the install and hadn't even ordered the new counters yet. Then they told me it would be another 3 weeks. Sigh, at least they left the counters that didn't fit 'installed' for now. They even put my tap in backwards, like I was left handed? I thought that was weird. Anyway.
Lol...can you imagine what it would be like if I had no counters at all. Dinner out every night y'all! Woohoo! (as if) Hahahaha....
I've been doing some crocheting lately and made a pair of slippers for my sister. This pattern is a "Two Girls Pattern" from Etsy. I love their patterns. They're up to date and my gauge seems to match theirs. They have lots of cute slipper patterns for kids and adults.
Here's a photo of the slippers I made. Notice I added leather/suede to the bottoms. I find they last much longer when I do that.
There's little gold flecks in that black button. Gives them a feeling of happy!
Well, that's it for me today. I've been on my computer all day working on my Etsy Shop and re-arranging things and I really need to get off and make dinner, fold laundry, iron the washed fabric for sewing, etc. Oh...and it's my Mom's 80th birthday this Sunday...will I have time to make a card?
Have a good weekend!!
