You just have to Love Early Spring Blooming Flowers!! My Crocuses always put a big smile on my face and make my heart soar with JOY~ Our whole Winter has been very mild so hence my wee delicate, delightful beauties have arrived early!
I have been very busy creating symbols of Spring! My first creation is this crocheted bowl.
But this bowl is far from being finished. In my next posting you may not even be able to recognize it. It may turn into something totally different.
I have gotten back to doing some wet felting. I just love the feel of creating with wool.
So one afternoon I decided to make some wool felted eggs. Nothing fancy but the wee eggs will soon have a home.
These baubles were on My Country Bucket see photo on My Header. I thought they needed a bit of sparkle so I added some beads to them.
When I was felting my eggs, a thought came to my mind to felted some wee Pink Baubles to "Celebrate" My Retirement and Spring"!
The Wee Pink Baubles can be made into ear rings, a bracelet or to embellish any creation.
I now have over "200 Followers" ( Very Big Smile) so I thought a wee giveaway would be nice to celebrate all three wonderful events.
Along with the Wee Pink Beaded Baubles I am also giving away this very unique embellishment I found in a Yarn Shop this past weekend. It shaped is very unique and on the package it is called a "Ruffle". Can anyone guess what it is made from???
There will also be a "Surprise" "Handmade by Me with Love"!!
As always My Sweetie will drawn the "Winner" on March 22nd. This time there will only be 1 winner for all three gifts. Good Luck to All.
I have been waiting for over 1 year for the release of the BBC Land Girls Series 3. It was release the day after my birthday in February. My sweetie bought it for me and we have now watched 2 episodes. I absolutely LOVE this Movie Series. I would highly recommend this movie series to everyone. Has anyone else watched this Movie Series?? I would love to hear from you.
In January I "Retired" from being a nurse for 36 years. For the last several weeks I have been thinking of all kinds of things I would like to do.
First My Sweetie and Me will be spending more time with family. Exploring new places with our RV. I hope to spend more time in My New Studio My Sweetie created for me a couple of years ago.
Which bring me to the "Next Step" in My Journey of Retirement. I have decided to open a "Etsy" shop and see if anyone would like to buy any of my creations.
I have been thinking for weeks what to call this new "Etsy" shop and in the middle of the night it came to me to call it
"CJ's Artsy Creations"! What do you all think??
So now I need to create some Fancy Business Cards. Then actually go through the process of setting it up. In the next few weeks hopefully I will be taking "The Next" step.
I feel blogging makes the world a little smaller and shows me each and everyday that "Our" Journeys are not so very different after all.
I hope you all will continue to join me as I slowly venture down this new of path of my life called "Retirement"!
A Very Heart Felt Thanks to all my Blogging Friends for their many years of chatting with me. I have enjoyed every minute of My Blogging Experience!!
