I'm Still here!

          I realize it has been ages since I have updated on here!!  I'm still here!  Over the past few years my business has grown to crazy busy status!  I have to give many MANY thanks to all my wonderful customers here in the USA and all over the world!  Thank you for your business!!!
          To every business there are ups and downs. I have had many ups, and more recently, a down.  In the process of doing a browser check on my product I came across a copy cat!!  It broke my heart!  I contacted the shop owner that was selling my scarf design and she informed me that she got it off a Russian website!! She actually thought it wasn't a copyright violation, because it was an open source.  Yeah, all the scarves on the website were MINE!  I contacted the Russian website and they have since removed the post, Bless you Olga!  With that done, I wait for a response to the kind letter I wrote the shop carrying copies.  I kindly let her know how much this scarf means to me, the time and effort I put into it trying to be original and unique. I've had many come to ask me for a pattern, and I had to kindly reject.  I'm not ready to give it up. That said (short story) I truly hope she can find it within her to remove the two offending scarves.
          We were all blessed with some sort of talent, that's what makes us unique.  Please don't copy, you never know who it will hurt.  I have now experienced that kind of hurt and violated feelings.  Research is key.
         On a happy note, Thanks again to all my loyal wonderful customers!!!  I would not be where I am with out you all.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!  You are the best!!

        Oh yeah!!  Beware of counter fit products!!  The ruffle bow scarf is a Repent Industries Original!

Keep that Motivation!

Now that the winter months are closing in, its harder to keep that motivation, I know it is for me.  The mornings are much cooler, every window reflects the cooler weather ... I just want to curl up with a nice warm blanket and watch TV.  Wait, I can't!  For a brief moment in my busy day to day life I began to think of things that keep my motivation going.  Here's one of many:

1.  Make sure the work area / Personal living area is clean.  This is especially helpful when working out of the home.  I can't work properly when I know my house is a mess, even slightly.

So tomorrow, I'll be hitting on another motivation keeper.  <--helpful

Halloween 2010

What a night!!!  Full of so much fun, taking the kids trick-or-treating!!  Shay and Brody's costumes were a hit!  They got so many complements... I seriously thought about making costumes to sell.. but then I thought about how much time it took!  Well, it only took three days for the two of them (Halloween day being one of them!) What a rush, late nights and all.  I finally got to catch up on sleep!  Pictured are Night fury from How to train your dragon and Godzilla.  I was a Harajuku girl to go with Godzilla.  My husband, who was suppose to dress up, was suppose to be a viking.

Thank You Mary!!

For purchasing this lovely scarf!!

Thank You Tali!

Adventures in Picture taking

I always knew I loved all forms of art, but I never thought I would enjoy Photography this much!  I am just eating it up!!  Most of my pictures I have taken in my town!

Out on a morning bike ride, running errands... I am starting to see the picture quality of just about anything.  I am starting to see things in a whole new light, ordinary things are starting to take on an artistic potential.  I find myself making weird noises to catch the attention of animals I pass on my morning strolls, Yeah, I probably look like a dork.  What am I going to do next?  Probably knocking on neighbors doors asking if I could take a picture of the cat in their yard, just so I don't look like some weirdo peeping in.  Either that or use a zoom lens while in hiding...
