It's been raining a lot lately and it's making me feel pretty un-motivated. Today as the baby was taking a nap, I decided to take the oportunity to frolic and take some pictures. My feet got pretty wet, but it was well worth the fresh air! Mother Nature Rocks!

In remembrance of Austin Powers....TackledAndShackled is really "switched on baby!"
What I mean is, you should really visit her shop! I've made two purchases and I was impressed each time! I'm a big fan of original works, you know, something you never ever seen before...well that's what you'll find at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6147936
The switch plates are super cool, and affordable. Also the use of rice bags as a up-cycled handbag really rocks my socks!
Here are some of my favorite items in her shop right now that I think are really worth checking out!
I've been playing around with some ideas I had for new sections of things to offer in the shop. The toe rings have been a hit but it is obvious that once the colder seasons hit, there won't be so much traffic in my shop. I had made knit and crochet stuff before, but I wanted something totally original and unique...like the toe rings,so I used some know-how from my experience that I had with the "rock n' roll boho scarf" that I made some time ago. Viola!
I completed this headband, and am working on another of simular concept but thinner in style. Thanks to my lovely mother for modeling for me! I didn't list this for sale yet because I don't have any other pictures so this is a sneak preview!
I'm going to make some bags in this style too! More pictures to come!
It 's been raining all freakn' week so far which leaves me to do little gardening and etsy picture taking but today, ta-da! Finally a mostly sunny day. I decided to take some pics of my garden so far for you all. Also, here's the new toe ring addition!
P.S. Only a couple more days to enter the contest! Get the rears, in gears!
We pushed celebrating Donnovan's 1st birthday party back to this upcoming weekend because other family members already had obligations and I wanted everyone to be there. I am stressing out about the party because we have such a small house, and sooooo many people coming. It will be the first time that we ever had more than 5 people at my house at once. I really hope it doesn't rain, that is going to be horrible. It seems like everyday the forcast changes for saturday too, make up your damn mind weatherman!!!! Anyway, all this stressing and planning is leaving little time for me to craft and be attached to my etsy shop. I'm feeling a little guilty about planting my ass in front of the computer when there seems to be so much stuff to get done. Maybe I should start drinking more coffee.....that ought to do wonders for my already horrific stomach problems! Wish me luck this week peeps! Pass the xanax. Anners
I've got lots of new toe rings that I'll be listing hopefully, once a day time willing. You need toe rings to show off those little toe-zies during sandal season!! Don't forget to enter my contest for free toe rings by scrolling down to "all those little toes" blog. Here's the newest addition to the toe ring collection.
I'm an artist that started to go to college to be an art teacher in 1999, but then life happened and I ran out of money to finish. Since then I worked some crummy jobs, bought a house, got married, and had a baby. It is difficult to find creative jobs in my area without some kind of mega degree. I'd consider going back to school after my son is a little older, but I'm not sure if I'd go back for teaching now. I think I'd like to get into art therapy some day.
