Maybe I should sew something. Oh wait, my commissioned projects are frozen until I can get my PDF pattern out of the chokey. WAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!
I could learn Japanese so that I can translate my Japanese pattern books. Or I could learn French so I could read that one blog that has translated the Japanese pattern book. Wait, what?
Well, at any rate, my house is 3/4 clean and I have made apricot fruit leather and jerky today. So I guess I was a little more productive without my laptop. It does seem to distract me quite a bit. I can't pull pics out of my camera and load them in this comp because if it has more than 10 pictures stored it becomes the poster child for the La Brea tar pits. Oh ya, and my PhotoShop CS5 would probably cause smoke to come out of the damn thing, so no edited photos for you or me!
I have been browsing through Macs all day, drooling, wishing, hoping for a magical giveaway somewhere. I may just have to call my sis in Alaska and see if she knows of any good deals on one. Chels? You reading this? H.E.L.P!!!!! PLEASE!!!!! Sob sob sob and s.o.b.!!!!

As a small token of my thanks I'm going to give you a link to an AMAZING blog I love following!
The Idea Room. She is giving away a Silhouette! Yes, the nifty gadget we crafters drool over. I'm going to go to bed dreaming of heat transfer now I just know it.
Get on over there, check out her blog, enter the giveaway (she even gives you more than one chance to enter!) and get your craft on!!
Yup, this is it!! Don't you just love that design!!! Best of all, there are NO cartridges!!! It hooks to your computer! You can use any design, font, etc from your computer and their software! How great is that!!!!! Oh, you're still here? Get over there already. But please come back to me! I promise I will try harder to post more often. ;)

I have been entering my projects in linky parties in the hopes of generating more traffic over here at PoppySeed. I have a couple more followers!! :)) YAY! So in my book, it's working! You will notice that I am adding linky buttons on the side of my blog. Those are the parties where I have added my stuff. Click on them and check them out! Help support the crafting world, and those of us that are just starting out.
In the mean time I'm trying to come up with something fun as a giveaway. Does anyone know how I could track how many people other's bring to my blog? Or is that impossible? If you can help me that would be great!!

What is that you say? Still no clue?
It's the blade to the Sky Ski. The first two pictures are of it assembled. It is razor sharp and really heavy. I have several marks to prove my hard work on it today. I shaved the top of my foot on it and sliced open my thumb.
I hope Woody is happy.

The reason for starting this is all due to the blog Crafterhours. I entered a contest they were having. It was all about skirts. I entered two that I had just finished. I didn't win, but when I scrolled down a couple pictures. There were MY skirts. MINE as is the ones I sewed! With my own hands! My breath caught and if it hadn't been 1:30 am I would have screamed like a littel girl! Or tried, my voice doesn't go that high. My skirts were listed as some of their favs!!!! I couldn't believe it! To top it off, Anna of Noodlehead posted one of them as one of her favs in the Flikr pool!! Oh my!! Two heavy hitters in one day!!! Is this surreal or what??
This has inspired me to jump out there full force and get my stuff into the big time. I suck at blogging so I'm hoping that having to post my sewing creations will keep the blog wheels churning. Here is a link to Noodlehead. Swing on over there and check out her amazing stuff!! As soon as PayPal confirms that it is in fact me who has been using my account for the past 9 YEARS and lifts their security thing off me, I am buying her pattern for the gathered clutch tut. I already know how to make it (she's great with a tutorial) I just want to be able to sell them!!
