Fiber Purse / Robbie Moriarty

I love Fiber!  Years ago I found this purse at a Thrift Store covered in a Turkish rug.  It was a great beginning for adding stuff.  I will not be happy until I have embellished it to death!  This is what I do when we rent movies.  One eye on the screen the other on whatever project I'm working.

Break on thru to the Other Side / Closet Re-Do

Yes, there is 4 additional feet behind my regular closet.  We are down to studs.  Now I wait for experts to relocate heat/air vents and install electric.  Sam (above) my favorite Stud/Handyman will drywall once complete.  Walk in closet...................So excited!  Takes square footage to make me happy:)

Demo / Master Bedroom

The top photo is the left side before.  Then right side before.  Next Bear and LuLu sitting on the bed with a view of the wall behind them.  This is the best pic  I could find of the wall...  It was cute but not really functional.

Ok....I need storage!  The base cabinets I built myself when I didn't know how to build base cabinets.   Which could explain why no before pictures of the entire wall.   The window seat required lifting up the cushion to get inside.  Flaw in the design.  So yesterday after the demo... I am back to square one and will have professionals build the base cabinets with drawers!!!  The window seat you get to storage without lifting and removing cute pillows.  And two wall mounted cabinets with storage.  I hope I can make it just as cute and functional.  But I suspect the art pottery and books will be sacrificed in the process.

Spring Fling / Kele, Zoee, Bear

Ok I have way too much time on my hands.  Kele in lilac, Zoee in pink and Bear in bunny ears.  Finally, I captured all three looking cute.  This weekend we took the pups to a dog park we recently joined.

Well to say they loved it is an understatement!!!!  Kele was the belle of the ball leading all the other dogs around the paths.  She must have remembered her time in charge of her own pack of wild dogs on 40th street before we rescued her.  Zoee, was the owner favorite because she is so friendly,cute, fluffy, and doesn't shed.  A woman demanded to know her breed.  I said mix.  Well, the woman insisted she needed to be her own breed and could win Westminster.  Well....I feel the same but I think they only allow pure breds.  Bear just loved being on his own and not having the girls chase him.  A good time was had by all.

Welcome Home / Post Kentucky Crafted

The doggies really missed me.  We have a chalk board wall where a message from the dogs was written to me.  The real Zoee is in front of her picture.  She is always game for a photo session. 

Thanks to everyone who attended The Kentucky Craft Market.  Sales were brisk.  Great wholesale orders. 

Always good to see my peeps.  Life is good.  I am so lucky to earn a living as an artisan.  The support of Kentucky Crafted: The Market really makes it possible.  A great weekend was had by all.
