Wish List

So if you are out there wondering, "Just what should I get Stephanie for Christmas," you have come to the right place! While my wish list is much longer (and grander) than what I have here, these are a couple of things I would just loooove to see under the tree come Christmas morning. 1. Felted Coasters from rosetutu I love the floral motifs she adds to the coasters, and I orchids just happen to be my favorite flowers. ever. 2. One of the Symbiosis zippered pouches from UnikatHK. I really love the yellow one pictured, but honestly I'd love it in just about any color! 3. Absolutely ANY skein of super bulky yarn from beeskneesknitting. Anyone who even slightly knows me, knows that I love yarn. I don't even need to have a project in mind, if I like the yarn, I want it. This is no exception! 4. Last but not least, a sugar and creamer set from whitneysmith. I do not drink coffee (in fact my hot beverage of choice is rose hip tea) but I love this set. I figure I don't really need an excuse to want it, it's beautiful and who doesn't want beautiful things on their table?! I already own one of her red dogwood plates, and it is gorgeous!

So there you have it.  A short but wonderful list of things I would love to find under the tree come Christmas morning. Have your own Christmas wish for under the tree? Let me know, it might inspire a second (or third) list!

Oh, and obviously, Happy (early) Thanksgiving! :)

It's About That Time!

Yes that's right! I'm having a sale over at the Etsy Shop! From now until December 18th I am having a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale on every item in my shop. Here's the deal: Buy 2 of whatever you like and then pick a 3rd item of equal or lesser value for free! Instead of purchasing the 3rd item, simply leave me a message in the 'notes to seller' during check out saying what it is you would like for free. It's as simple as that. Happy Shopping!

I Have a Secret Talent

Actually it's not that secret and I'm not that good, but I just love to knit. I learned how to last year and I haven't looked back. In preparation for this coming winter I've made myself a tam (slouchy beret actually). My very long hair is actually quite wavy and I get sick and tired of crappy looking hair from being out in the snow. As long as no water touches my hair I'm usually okay to be out in public. :) I'm hoping this hat keeps my hair nice and dry. If not at least I'll (hopefully) stay warm. Or look cute. I'll take 1 out of the 3!
If you like the hat and want to knit one for yourself you need to go here and click on the Gretel pattern. Or if you are a member of Ravelry you can get it there. (just search for Gretel)

I'm in Love (part II)

Today my second package of Red Flannel Elephant cards arrived in the mail!!! :) After receiving my first set I knew that I would have to make a point of getting every other card offered, because these are some of the most beautiful illustrations I've come across. I now own all the cards you see to the left, plus just about every other card in her (that would be Gretel Parker) shop! 

She slyly added a cute new card, 'Wheely Bird', which I will own at some point. (He's the adorable yellow bird with blue wheels pictured below.) Okay maybe she didn't slyly add it, but I'm glad she did because now I have an excuse to purchase more of her cards at some point!

Do yourself a big favor and check out one of her two shops (if it they aren't already in your Etsy favorites!)
