Still Not Sewing!

Ok, so I'm still being lazy about sewing and reopening my ebay store so I thought I'd show you that I'm not just spending my time in front of the tv or reading. These are 2 more tags I made for my paint shop pro group. I'm really hooked on these scrap tags, in fact I've been spending way too much time over at . Between her fantastic FREE kits and the links she has to other sites with more FREE kits I'm spending way to much time downloading. I must have over 100 by now!

Maybe by my next post I'll have something about the businness to report. :)

Yahoo is closing Geocities, Now what?

First, the graphic above is another of my psp designs. I started with a mask provided by the Master's group and added scraps from various kits. Most are from a kit by Yvette at They've got some nice things there. I don't know who made the fairy but if you do, please let me know so I can give the artist credit. If the artist doesn't allow use of their art I'll remove it.

Now for the big news. Yesterday when I went to log into my geocities account to do an update at my psp results site, back when I used to post everything I made, I found a message saying that they are going to close geocities. That means I have to move my store site which is spread over 3 accounts plus all the others I use for pictures and psp. I guess I'll finally move the store to godaddy where I bought my domain. I'm even thinking about buying another domain name to use for non-business stuff just to avoid ads. I'll keep you updated here and at the web site.

Look for July Doll Crafter & Costuming!

I know it's been awhile since I last posted. I've been fighting health probs and spending most of my time reading instead of designing and crafting like I should be doing. Yesterday I receievd 2 free issues of Doll Crafter & Costuming July 2009 magazine. My pattern for flower ladies is in it! They did a great job of using a lot of the picture jpgs I sent. I really think pictures help so much with directions. Now I just hope the readers like them.
I'm still working or should I say ignoring the rabbit patterns I've been working on since Feb. and the tatting patterns. I lost so much time because we were having trouble with the computer. We thought it might be a virus but it turned out the IE7 I installed wasn't downloaded right so it installed bad. Now I'm back to IE6 and I think I'll stay with it.

I am still taking Paint Shop Pro classes and enjoy making things so I thought I'd post 2 of the graphics I made. We were given things for an egypt based scrap so I thought I'd do one using the title of a book I just finished. The Elizabeth Peters books are fun mysteries set in the late 1800's to the early 1900's. I really like the butterfly tag and have been thinking about designing new graphics for my web site similar to it.
