Feeling Peachy

Peachy Keen Rose Ring by Robot Pop(me)

It's a new year.  I started a new craft(dyeing my own wool and spinning my own yarn).  I have some new friends(Hi, Etsy Fort Worth newbies!).  I'm hoping to start blogging more, adding more to my Etsy shop, pinning more, completing more craft projects, eating healthier and just all around getting more done.

To start me off I'm going to get back in the habit of posting up some of my favorite things from across the internet and my life.

I hope the rest of your week is filled with blissful peachy moments!  Now I have to get back to work on my February Craft Challenge project.

Etsy Fort Worth January Craft Challenge Winner!

I found out yesterday that I won Etsy Fort Worth's January Craft Challenge to upcycle sushi trays.  The picture at the top of this post features two designs from my entry.  Thank you to everyone who voted for the challenge entries.  Please take a moment to check out the other entries:

Cuff Bracelet by Bespangled Jewelry

Leather and Woven Wire Choker by Beadtanical Buzz
I would also love it if you would take a moment to check the awesome write-up about me on the Etsy Fort Worth blog.  The February Craft Challenge has started and this month's item is empty thread spools.  Luckily, I have a habit of keeping anything I could possibly use in a future crafty project, so I have a small pile of vintage wood spools and some plastic ones.  Now if only I could figure out what I want to make.
