Freebies and Sneak Peak

Everyone enjoys a good freebie, especially when my very creative and talented friend Janelle is doing it.  Starting today, she is having 40 days of giveaways to celebrate her birthday. 

Some of her equally creative friends are also supplying items.  Today is day one and Sheree is giving away a gorgeous Bear hat that she has crochet for a Blythe Doll.  Poppy Tree Lane is her new etsy store where she sells cosies for tea cups as well - nice.  They look well made and if I drank a lot of hot drinks I would certainly get one for myself.

Back to Janelle's giveaway.  In the time it has taken for me to write this she has already posted giveaway number two!!!  This time it is one of her creations.  If you are into quilting, this is a gorgeous table runner pattern.  I have added a link on the side of my blog to her giveaways but you can link to her blog in general from here.

As for me, well I got told by my friend at work that I am wasting my life away working where I am and that I should be out there creating and selling my creations.  I have my hand in so many crafts right now that I don't know where I would begin.  I started my Etsy store years ago and it has been sitting empty since.  Back then I only had a few craft skills, now!!!!

Let me see: card making, scrapbooking, sculpting, carving, sewing in general, quilting, photography, jewellery making, mixed media, my doodle artwork, embroidery, poetry, creative writing, doll making, soap, and woodworking but I don't have the tools for that so it probably doesn't count.  If anyone can see how I can make a living off of all of that and not worry about the bank taking my house or where my next meal is coming from, please let me know.

My photos from Tassie are coming along nicely.  I hope to finish sorting them this weekend.  Here is a sneak peak of a couple of them.

Well I was going to give you a sneak peak but I think I will be lucky to show you any.  Apparently I now have to pay to upload my pictures because I have met the free quota!!!  Will have to sort this out another day.
