This and That

7 Mar

The hens have started laying eggs again.

It seems to be the start of cat fighting season.  I am not a fan of this season.

Rocky cracks me up.  He always lies like this.

I’m still knitting.  I’m up to five completed hooded scarves and started a sixth.  This pattern is so easy  that I can still knit it when I’m sleep deprived from checking goats in the middle of the night. I think I need to sell some so I have money to buy more yarn.

I am bringing all of my products home from the store in Des Moines.  It just wasn’t working for me.  I’m thinking about Etsy or something else.  I do have my on-line store, but there’s something to be said for the platform recognition with Etsy.

I’m also trying to add fine art prints to the items I have for sale.  I love the paper they are printed on.  It’s a really heavy art paper.


Wish me luck finding a venue that works better.

And Sky.

Why is it every time he’s lying there looking handsome and I got to take his picture, he jumps up to come see me?

Almost Back in Business

17 Jul

I have spent a lot of time this summer cleaning and painting in the soap room.  I’ve been making new inventory and getting ready to be open on the weekends again.

I’m almost there.  My hope is to be open every Saturday after the first of August.  If the garden cooperates, I’ll even be able to add fresh produce.

Inspiration

8 Nov

I love when people ask me if they can use one of my images as inspiration for a painting.  I’ve had several of these requests.  The first was years ago, and I shared the results then, but I’ll share them again.

Last summer, I had someone ask if they could use a selfie I took with Joe as model for their painting.  I was lucky enough to purchase (for shipping) the painting after it was done being displayed.

The latest is this adorable rendition of Bullwinkle (Cinnamon’s triplet brother).

It really is nice to know my animals and photography inspire others.
