Almost Easter

I woke up this morning to see that we sold my Loopy Bliss Aluminum Big Cross Pendant to someone in Belfast Ireland. I guess they don't have a lot of celtic crosses there. Or they have sold out of all of them. In any case, it was quite a lovely surprise to break our 1 day dry spell of no sales yesterday and I thought it pretty neat that I could make a celtic cross design that appealed to someone coming from the land of celtic crosses. It's like selling ice to eskimos. Perhaps with the weakened dollar it was just too good a bargain to pass up. Yay weak dollar!

Our slow down in sales on Etsy has allowed me a little bit of time to work on the long overdue wholesale order I really need to bring over to the First Alternative Food Co op in Corvallis. I was also able to take some new pictures and list this new design:
Long Stem Dark Ruby Red Earrings. I was quite pleased with the way the pictures came out. i took them indoors on my window sill on a mostly cloudy day. I kept waiting for the clouds to get in front of that bright harsh sun.
I was hesitant to do a version of the "all in one earwire that is the earring" motif that you see around a lot these days. But these big luscious red glass beads just seemed to work too well on that 18 gauge wire.
Our 14 year old wild cat Fidel has been getting into a lot of nasty fights lately. We think it is probably with our neighbors cat Patrick (named after Spongebob's friend) who is an unfixed male. We tend to wait out most of his war wounds but he developed a pussy absess on his face that could not be ignored. Especially when it started to leak. Ewwww. So we pulled out our old trusty Pet Taxi and squeezed him in and took him to the vet. We hadn't put the cat carrier away yet since Henry and Max were fascinated by the thing. They thought Fidel would like to play chess in there. Every time I passed by and saw it out of the coner of my eye I would have a moment of panic as I thought it looked like there was a pile of poop in there.

Nope, just chess pieces. Fidel apparently had no interest in playing chess . Nor does he seem to ever want to enter that thing again.Who can blame him him?
Happy almost Easter!
