I love Christmas time and now it is done for another year….. Everyone is slowly going back to work.. kids will be back to school in a few weeks and it will be back to the same routines again… but not for me… I have decided that I am going to change things up just a little for me this year. Not a resolution or any such thing that I can lament that I have blown when the new year comes around. But more of a system tweak lol. I tend to be very much go with the flow. But this year, I am going to make some things happen. Fiberific is a new business and it needs some energy poured in to make it grow and be happy and flourish, so this year.. energy it is.. into everything I do.
One thing is to get the web store up and running.. and to help with that my DH bought me a very thoughtful gift of a Portable Photo Studio and Lighting Kit… I am still learning to use it and also remembering that I have it lol… I keep taking pics with out it, even though it is set up and ready to go.. but I love it and so does my daughter, I was going through the camera looking for pics for this blog and I found that she has been enjoying it ALOT… so many pics of her Monster High Dolls and Lego Friends, all in the Light box lol….
It has a grey and blue cloth to go in it for background and is LOTS OF Fun!! Awesome Christmas Pressie hey! I also got a Wii game I have been hanging out for for ages… Kirby’s Epic Yarn!!! Woot!!!!
Now as some of you know I love a little website called Ravelry… some may even say I am addicted to it… I would not agree of course. But this year I opted in to a Secret Santa Swap and I was a very lucky lady. I received my box just after Christmas so was like Christmas all over again.. gotta love that. And when I opened it, I was shocked and excited. The amazing PixieDuncan from Ravelry had made me a set of her awesome Pixie Claws! Handcrafted out of Cedar, they smell divine!
and a Pixie Diz
and because combs and a diz are not quite complete with out fibre, Pixie also added in some stunning Cormo cross Shetland Fleece… which combed up wonderfully I might add. And as you all know me, it doesn’t matter how many things I have on the go. I got a new toy and just had to play with it. So I carefully washed the fleece and let it dry and the next day I dug out some out knitting machine clamps and clamped it to the table on my back patio.
and got stuck in. While I was working on this Abbie decided that it was ok out on the patio in 35 degree heat that would be 95F for some others. And she proceeded to build a Lego Friends Community on the other end of the table.
