HO! HO! HO! It's Christmas time for me!!!

What a month it's been!

Christmas parties, Christmas shopping, awful traffic and pissy people EVERYWHERE! Plus, I had such a slow start this month on etsy. I promoted and promoted and promoted.......god I hate promoting, but being relatively new, it gets people to see my stuff. After all that promoting, I had one sale this month! I finally decided the hell with promoting and vented in the forum about my slow month and WAMO! Sales! I had 'em! Maybe I should vent a little more often! Anyways, sales = money. ALL FOR ME TO SPEND ON ME!!!

AND...this month I finally broke down and bought something I have wanted FOREVER. Well, maybe not FOREVER, but for a while now. The only thing that held me back was a lack of cashola. I have a hard time justifying buying anything for myself really. BUT it's Christmas and I wanted it so I got it!!!!! What is it???? FELTIDERMY from Girl Savage. I know you've seen her stuff. It's always in Treasuries and always on the front page. My feltidermy however is the best ever! It's an albino jackalope! Pretty sweet huh?



The next awesomeness for me this month was being contacted by the Spruill Gallery in Atlanta. They want to include my bears in their gallery store! Holy crap that is sweet. I've had a few people mention to me at shows that they have a "friend of a friend of a cousin" that has a store and may like to have your bears in their store, but......nothing. So this is HUGE for me! YAY ME!!!

So, Merry Christmas to me, and YOU!

1. That feltidermy is AWESOME!
2. Mark your prices up. Just a little, but the way the bears are flying out of there, you need to make a buck or two more.
3. I put all my stuff at Spruill this holiday season and they're nice!

Where I'm At

I have no internet access at work and it's killin' me. It's nuts how hooked on that shit I am! I'm used to havin' Facebook open all day.....chattin' with friends, lookin' at all the stupid shit posted.....no mas. One day, I'm gonna go missin' and my new co-workers are gonna find me huddled in a corner rockin' back and forth droolin' on myself mumblin' somethin' about Facebook destroyin' my life. I hope they just put me outta my misery right then and there.......

Unfortunately, my blog's gonna take the biggest hit. I've always blogged from from work. It was nice and quiet and I could THINK which is somethin' that's dang near impossible to do at home. This whole havin' a husband and kids thing doesn't really afford me the time or the quiet I need to write.

Today though I decided I don't really care about all those hours of Facebook updates. They were amusing at work, but once I'm at home, ehhh...…

ADD Overload

My brain is suffering from a major case of scatter smothered and covered (mmmm....Waffle House) today.

I keep staring outside hoping it will rain some more. Then I think about how bad it would suck to have to go to Walmart and have a cart full of groceries to get in and out of the car in pouring rain.

Man, I need groceries. My pantry and fridge are lookin' a little bare these days. Last night Jerm was in the kitchen makin' all kinds of clinkin' noises and shit. I totally thought he was cleaning the kitchen for me. Uh, no. He was all pissed off cleaning rotten shit outta the fridge (sour cream and blood oranges). Dammit! I TOTALLY thought he was doin' some dishes....he coulda totally gotten some if he did. His loss.

I don't think men realize that helping around the house is like the most romantic gesture you can make. Fuck flowers, the hell with a candle lit dinner.....clean the damn house yo. I ain't kiddin' either. I loathe cleaning house, but I still freakin…

His Obituary has also been posted. There are a lot of great positive messages that have been left in the Guestbook.
