hey there mystikz, guess the baby let you get some computer time to yourself!

and a craftytime reminder for us all: next idle hands meeting is at featherz house (me and martha have patched things up, for all who were wondering) at ten a.m., first tuesday of the month so that Vinyalz can make it. We are making holiday cards, or tags, or whatever! So bring: paper, gluestix, scissors, ephemera, string, whatever you can think of!

I've got all sorts of crafty things (as you all know) to use, and i'll be picking up some more holiday colored/themed papers to work with, and some enevelopes! That's all I can think of, see you all this weekend!

Wool Addicts Unite

I mentioned felting the other day at the glass studio and this cute lady making a glass project turned out to be a wool person, I thought I'd pass on her info if anyone is looking for a place to buy wool from. She sells the stuff! All local goodness. Seems there are wool addicts everywhere I look!

Debbie's company is the Oregon Trail Natural Fibers

Felt options

So I went to Mill End to get some fabric & felt. I didn't love their selection so I started chatting with a felting "expert" about options. She wanted me to buy colorless wool roving & dye it myself with various vegetables... since I didn't feel that adventurous she suggested I just buy wool yarn (so much cheaper & so many color options). Maybe you all knew you could use wool yarn, but I didn't, so I thought I'd share. Maggie, do you have an opinion on using yarn?
(don't tell anyone but Byron's attempting to felt as I write this :)

Inaugural Idle Bitchez meeting!

Is that how you spell inaugural? I guess it is cause spellcheck liked it. Hey Idle Bitchez, I had a freaking awesome time making some felted birdz with ya! And I am pleased to be the first to post pictures of our party on the blog. Ha!

So here you all are, lovely ladiez, drinkin' the tea and admiring the wool:

The wool gettin' ready to be made into birdz:

And our darling birdiez nesting! We are some crafty bitchez!

I'm thinking I will try a four legged critter next, perhaps my parent's westie, bailey. If it turns out, I will bring it on down to the market before I give it to them for christmas...

So, next up is Christmas cards! Or, cause I know some of you have card ideas already that may not require a whole lotta stampin', you can make gift tags, or decorate envelopes, or make thank yous, or who knows what!

Too much social hour makes me crazy!

Well If you didn't sell at the Bank Corp Tower....good move. I would really like to thank the One (Sweet) lady that bought earrings from me. She might have purchased a piece of my soul... Also the ladies that couldn't figure out if I was selling bracelets or earrings, I apologize to those ladies for that shitty look on my face. I might of had a crinkled nose too! I'm working on correcting that.

I did have ALOT of valuable social time with some crafty bitchez! Now I even have an antennae cozy to show for it(Thanks Featherz)! Also, I realized that if I were a dog, I'd be a black lab/ border collie mix. I think people think I'm crazy. Crazy enough to be an idle hands BITCH! Can I throw the word classy in there somewhere? I think Vinylz might swing into our meetings sometime. She's coming around. See you Sat ladies;)
