Well I have only been on Etsy a week and already I have been on two treasury pages! wow!
This is a snapshot of the treasury page I am on today ( yes I had to ask my 16yr old how to do that!) It is picked by Carolsglasscreations, mine is the hanging heart. The other page I didn't manage to get a shot of was by my good friend Tanya, visit her blog on www.thatcheekyurchin.blogspot.com . Thanks guys for featuring me! Go check out my Etsy store I need that first sale!!!

The question is "what are you thankful for today"?
Ok I have finally taken the plunge and opened an Etsy store, so please drop by and take a look. I have just listed a couple of items to begin with. Fingers crossed it goes ok!! Heres the address; www.purplecatscorner.etsy.com There is no dash in the name etsy wouldn't let me put it in.
I have so many lovely pieces of fabric, and I never seem to use them so today I was inspired to make something with them. I came up with a heart and a couple of houses.They are all hand stitched so by no means at all are they perfect but if anyone would like one just send me an e-mail with your details and I will post it off to you. Heres my address karenjtomlinson[at]hotmail dot co dot uk. First three to leave a comment and e-mail me get one!
I was beginning to think I would never get back to making something, I have been home a week now, gee my holiday sure put me out of my stride!! Anyway I made these 2 pictures which are in magnet photo frames and a few dolls- I feel sooo much better!!!
I am back from my Holiday and I had the most wonderful time! The thing that surprised me most was that I went totally into holiday mode and did NO art whatsoever! I cannot believe this!Anyway hopefully I am all chilled and refreshed and will soon get into my groove. Florida was great, we had a lovely villa with pool, we shopped , we visited Universal studios and Islands of adventure, we had a trip over to see friends at Long Boat Key, went to see Orlando Magic play Basketball, and generally relaxed. I got to shop at Jo Ann's and Micheals so I was very happy! I now have to spend a while catching up with everyones blogs!
