A Little Update…

…I’m crazy busy but wanted to say a quick hello!

Thank you all for all your congrats on the last post! I’m very happy to be where I am today business-wise and I couldn’t have gotten here without you all!

R and I just took a long weekend – kind of. It was more like half a week since we left on Sunday and came back on Wednesday. We love vacationing opposite of everyone else to avoid the crowds and are super happy that we are able to do that since we’re both self-employed. ANYway…

My Birthday was Sunday the 15th so we threw some stuff into the camper and headed to Maine. It was wonderful. Can you believe I forgot the CAMERA?! I know. Such a blogger fail. I did get a couple of shots that sum up the trip nicely…

I ate a lot of lobster rolls. ;o)

and we made sure to visit Nubble Light – our first visit back since R popped the question there 3 years ago!

We also had a nice visit with Amy aka Spunky Eclectic and family! It was great to be able to hang out with them when we weren’t all vending! I have some goodies that I picked up from her while at her shop but I’m saving those photos for another post. ;o)

Now, back to work for me! ;o)



Well, it appears…

…I’ve survived another trip around the sun.  For me, that’s cause for celebration SO, since I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve, in the tradition of the Hobbits, instead of you all giving me gifts, I shall give you a gift on my birthday!  (it’s not my eleventy-first birthday though, even if it feels that way on some days, hehe)

Yes, I said gift, but first, let me catch you up with my TdF spinning:

TdF 2010 - current spinning

Spun up:  ‘Champagne’ from Spunky Club December 2008, waiting to be plied:  ‘New Day’ from Spunky Club February 2009 and being spun: ‘Myrtle’ from Spunky Club March 2009.  (because I have readers who skim: THESE ARE NOT THE PRIZES!  I’m keeping these babies all to myself! muahahaha!)  ETA: All my singles for TdF are being spun on my Canadian Production Wheel, Mabelle.  Then, I’m winding off the singles from the CPW and plying on my Sonata with the Wooly Winder

My birthday gift to you?

Another herd of buckets...

A bucket bag – of your choice – from the stock in the shop.  The winner is welcome to look at what I have and then ask if I can make a bucket from a box listing.  What do you have to do to win this lovely prize?

  • Leave a comment! (and feel free to tell your friends!)
  • Tweet about it!  (no more than 1 tweet per hour, please – up to 5 tweets total.  If you include my twitter name @jessalu and a link to this post, you get an entry for each tweet!)

If we get more than 50 comments?  I’ll add a skein of handspun to the bucket!  ;o)  (handspun of my choice & it’ll be a separate prize from the bucket) ETA: Holy carp!  It only took 3.5 hours to hit 50 comments!  Okay, if we hit 100?  I’ll throw a third prize in – another bucket bag!

ETA again!: Holy carp on a cracker!  We’re up to 100+ – I guess this means if we hit 150 I’ll add a FOURTH prize, another skein of handspun!  See?  I love you guys! ;o)

This contest ends Friday night at Midnight – so you can spread the word via twitter, facebook and blogs until then!  Good luck!

Comments are now closed!  I’ll be pulling the winners over the weekend and posting them on Monday – thanks to everyone who commented and good luck!
