How are we all?
I am going to try and make a post every week, so we will see how i go.lol
Well last Saturday i bought a needle punch/felting machine. After much hunting around the Internet and asking around i decided to buy an pfaff- what i really wanted was the pretty husky star, but as it turns out they ARE the same machine in a different skin!
I am thinking that there must be a large number of needle felt machine blogs out there, as the shop said they had sold out of almost all stock.
The "butterfly" as she is called ,because of the butterfly on the machine is a real fun toy to have. She cost $500.00AU , i broke 8 needles in 5 Min's when i first started....do you think i was to heavy handed?? lol
I have removed the needle plate though, as i found the Little holes not forgiving when i do pull too hard on the felt.
In the thought of helping my self made income, i have opened four Internet outlets. I will be hoping to sell Fibre, Felt, Sparkling and Pretty items from my talents (??) lol, such as my love of photography- my pets, making cards, making beaded art, felting of all kinds and mixed media art.
As you all know, i have started art school this year and therefore have been exposed to many new styles.
I also really enjoy a good treasure hunt and love a good "find", so if i do, i will be offering it for sale.- if i don't keep it first.lol!
I have an Esty site, an EBay shop, an homestead website and an Free Webs site.
I think the free webs will really house my pets for sale and my photos.
http://heartfeltedcreations.com is my homestead site.
The etsy one i am having trouble working out, as i can get on to it but non of the links go there.
http://freewebs.com/nemcala This my free webs one and Nemcala is my registered stud name and farm .
http://stores.ebay.com.au/heartfeltedfibresandarts my eBay shop.
I might add now, that while all have been opened, non have been fully stocked or set up yet.-sorry.
Well, the breeding season is starting early here. Nemcala Park Petal has "come in" this week and so has been mated to Orlando's Blue Reilly. My new blue point birman bed buddy.
I can not wait to see the kittens this stunning lad makes.!! He has the most amazing loving- cuddly- friendly nature, although he can be a really goose and often gets called goose.lol
My computer is in a state of ill health and so don't have photos stored on it till its fixed.
On to family, my boys got their reports at mid year and all have gotten good marks or made much improvement.
Kalhan is however being bullied at school due to his bad leg. We will be working on this.
In the felt world, i am doing the market every 2nd saturday and its all gone nicely.
Last is the news that we have 8 maltese/shih tzu pups in the house! god help me.lol
Will take some photos soon.
take care and see you all in the next post.
