Queenie



Here's Queenie--pretty and practical, as any good queen should be! I took one of my little felt birds, and perched her in a beaded wire "nest" for her throne, and perched that on top of a paper mache box that I gussied all up with papers and glitter--wah lah! She's pretty sweet! and can be found in my Etsy shop.

Speaking of Etsy--I was just reading through a great thread in the forums and thought I would pass it along. It's all helpful crafting tips--basically from the experts, you know, all the wonderful Etsy artists and craftspeople. It's a fun read and I picked up quite a few new tips . Check it out HERE.

Is anyone else out there a fishing widow?? LOL, well, not a widow actually--but in the 15 years that Mark and I have been married--there has only been 1 Mother's Day that we have spent together! Yup! Opening fishing season weekend and Mother's Day happen at the same time here--and guess who loses that battle?? Sniff. I'm just kidding really, I always get very thoughtful cards and gifts for Mother's Day, just not on the actual day. It's kind of a standing joke here, and I get to pout and pretend that my feelings are hurt and everybody hugs me and spoils me. Sigh, I love Mother's Day. *grin*

Well, I need to go get back to work--this house is a sty! lol I can't wait until I make so much money with my Etsy shop that I can hire a maid (wake me up when this pretty daydream is over........).

And I love your sweet bird too! I want to say thanks for the coupons too! I had a two-soop sundae with jamoca almond fudge, pistachio almond, caramel sauce, nuts and a cherry! Heaven!!

I'm so glad Nick's not a sportsman. I'm more of a computer widow. I don't have kids yet so he hasn't left me for Mother's Day yet. I got a card from my cats today though, lol.
