MUT NEST (All-purpose year-round chat!)

Recommended Posts

@@DonnaD needs to do her own MUT craft fair around the holidays where we can buy her lovely creations and pretend we made them! ;) (No one would ever believe I did so, especially not those closest to me, they would say that since they have not heard that someone in TN accidentally broke all of the bones in their body while trying to crochet a scarf, there is no way I could have done it).

Spent yesterday in SF.  Thank you @@meaganola for recommending the XOX Truffle shop!  The Earl Grey truffles are AMAZING.  I can't believe 20 truffles are only 13 bucks.  That blew me away.  Hubby and I walked all over North beach.  Watched kids and puppies play in the park and had an amazing dinner at Park Tavern before heading to a friends art show.  The restaurant had smoked deviled eggs and they were sooooooo yummy.  

Such a great day!

Such fun accessories, they're all so pretty!!

 

I finally finished Z's squid today. I feel bad she had to wait so long after being so sweet to give it up for FGC but she's been dragging it around to all the stores today so she's happy.

THAT is too cute for words. You're also so talented! You all need Etsy shops or something, because I'm wanting all the things. :flowers:

I couldn't do an etsy shop. Zs ended up with 7 legs instead of 8, lol and because theyre sewn by hand there's visible seams, etc. They're just fun :)

 

Hubby has commisioned a shark so we went fabric shopping today.

I JUST GOT BACK FROM THE MOVIE. This is one of my favorite books from my childhood, and the movie didn't disappoint.

 

If anyone's on the fence, go see it. It's good. And I'm a fan of the liberties that they took that altered it just a bit. Loved the movie.

My daughter will be thrilled. She played Lily in the play this past spring and she is so excited to go see it.

So here's that shawl I did and a couple of other things.  I've got a craft fair coming up at the end of September so I'm on overdrive.

Oh man, I came home from the Ren Faire to over 100 MUT notifiications. All those crafts are so cute!  :wub:

Anyway, I sadly destroyed the eye shadow I use for my Elsa costume. But, today was the last day I'll be wearing that costume for months. So weh.

So I just got home from our family vacation to PA!! Had a blast, even with the ER visit (ruined the tendons in my foot while in Gettysburg), one kid throwing up (hooray for carsickness), & the 9.5 hour drive home when it should have only taken 5!!!! It really was fun though. It's good to be home & back on MuT again!

 

But I had to show you all the picture we did in Gettysburg! We found this old picture studio where they dress you up in civil war clothing & take pics! They told us not to smile & I thought there was no way that would happen, but check out this picture!!! Perfect right? I love it! I can't wait to hang it up on the wall!!

Oh no the shadow!! Your Elsa is so pretty, I'm jealous.

Thank you! You're too sweet!  :blush:

And broken pretties are always a sad sight. *a moment of silence*

That is adorable.  I envy people who can sew...well, not in the sense that I would ever want to do it because my least fav thing is sewing but because it's so professional looking.  I love the colours you chose!

I actually just opened one and most of the stuff I've posted here is listed and it's MUCH cheaper than the horrifying amount people seem to think they can get for a flippin' hat.  I can't link the store so pm me if you want to know.

 

I had a convo with @@Babs28 about pricing, which I had no idea what people were charging...I've never looked on etsy for anything other than patterns...and it offends the crap out of me how much people are charging.  The thing about crocheting is that you're going to crochet anyway.  The by product of that is you end up with a crapton of finished stuff and there's only so many hats you can give to one person before they don't want anymore...ya know?  So $30 for a hat that costs maybe $5 for the yarn and a few hours to make?  I can understand charging for your time if you're working but charging for your time when you're doing something you enjoy?  Puh-leeze!!!

Donna, I think the stuff that you make is amazing and I'm glad that you're going to be able to make some money from it! I do want to say, though, that you're lucky you have time for a hobby, and that it's one that could make you a little extra cash, but for some people what they make is actually an important part of their income. Maybe they're unemployed, maybe they are a stay at home parent struggling to make ends meet, whatever the reasoning, but they're charging for their time because they *are* working. After all, they say if you love what you do, you never really work a day in your life! But that doesn't mean you don't still need money :)

I realise some people do need the extra income but nobody is ever going to make a living wage off of crocheting...well, no regular person not connected to a yarn company anyway!!

Well, no, I'm not saying that, but they may be trying to cobble together a living wage from a variety of sources -- maybe they're crocheting, working part time at a store that won't give them more hours, babysitting neighborhood kids, and selling used books on eBay. And every part of that income might be important.

I just added your Etsy shop to my favorites, and you can expect an order from me in the near future ;) Scarves and hats and things like that are my weakness!

@@DonnaD congrats on the Etsy shop. Your stuff is so pretty, I know it'll go quickly ;)

 

 

 

 

I knocked out a snake for me real quick, i realized I'd been working on stuff for everyone and I hadn't done anything for me.

I filled him with white tea and bergamot scented rice so he's a hot compress/aromatherapy wrap since I've been sick.

    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
