My Favorite Etsy Shops, a Series: Tefi Designs

Ok, I should be working, or reading (hubby says I need to finish Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince so we can finally see the movie or ELSE), but instead I want to share some of my favorite Etsy shops and items.

I'll start off spotlighting some of my fellow Etsy Dallas artists, then off we go from there! And there are sooooo many awesome artists/crafters/whatever-ers on Etsy!!!

Hmmm, whom shall be FIRST?! Ok, Stephanie, you're IT!

Tefi Designs , Stephanie, is the founder of Etsy Dallas, and a large part of how wonderful it is today. She's an animal activist, and a new mom too! She also makes some kick-a jewelry. Here's one of my favs...

Insomnia ARGH

Once again, I am not asleep. I am supposed to be asleep; it's 3:23 a.m. for crying out loud! Drugs may be needed soon. Part of the problem for me anyway, is that 1) I've always been a nightowl, 2) I tend to get my creative energy at night 3) my schedule allows me to sleep in (usually). So it seems to get later and later...

Question: why do early-risers seem to get less grief than night-owls? I mean, if we are both awake the same number of hours, and get the same amount of work done, what difference does it make if you wake up early or late? Or go to bed early or late?

Night owls get a bad rap, I tell ya! It's discrimination!!!

Now when my kids are in school I have a much, well, a little, different schedule. My younger son has to be at football practice at 6:30 am!

Ok, enough babbling. Off to go drink some warm milk, or take an oxycodone hit. Would that work? Anyone with experience with Ambien etc. please comment here!

Knitting Again

I can't seem to stay away from my knitting and crochet for long. Maybe I am starting up now because my neighborhood book club is reading The Friday Night Knitting Club currently.

It's such a soothing hobby. Plus once you know your pattern, you can sit and watch tv, a movie (at least with one eye!) listen to music, have a conversation, all while creating. That's something I can't really do when I create jewelry pieces. Well, I MUST have music...preferably Paramore!

Here's the great lightweight piece in my shop...
