I do love this month! I am looking forward to a month of fun balanced with work. That's my main "theme" right now-
I want Tender Arts to be successful, but I don't want to wear myself out and I especially don't want to cut myself off from all the things I love about my life. Especially those babies that aren't so baby-ish anymore! So, I am still stitchin', but I am doing it when my other loves and responsibilities allow it. I do have a bunch of cute stuff to photograph and list so keep your eyes on my etsy shop. By Sunday I will have new merchandise, including Dolly Dingle and hopefully a little Halloween doll! I don't want to give too much away, but her name is Princess Witch Megan if that gives you any ideas!
In the Ghoulies and Goblins department, I brought Witchy-Poo out to grace my work area. She is ALWAYS ready for Halloween! Anyway, our newest rescued cat, Mandy (named for the mean little girl from The Grim Adventure of Billy & Mandy-a cartoon I hate, BTW) has decided that she loves Witchy-Poo! How cute is this?
Poor little Mandy isn't really as mean as the cartoon protagonist. She's deaf and not very social, but she is slowly becoming more trusting of us. She loves to watch Carmen and I wash dishes! Look at those blue eyes! She is so pretty and soft and we all wish we could pet her more than she allows. Maybe someday... In the meantime, I guess it's Witchy-Poo who will get all the affection!
