I Sold a Pair of Earrings!!!!!

I am so excited!!! One of the goals I had for my Etsy shop was met this morning: to sell a pair of earrings. It was a goal for me simply for the reason that it is very hard to sell jewelry on there due to the massive amount of competition. PLUS, the ones I sold were ones that included my very own needle felted beads! :D

I sold my "Earth Day" earrings to a fellow chat room member!!!:

Yaaayyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

"Fashioning Felt" Exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum

So I went to the felt exhibit on Sunday, and it was pretty cool. Don't know that I would bother traveling very far to see it, though... there's not all that much there. I also was not allowed to take pictures (I snuck in a couple anyway, though, until I realized I was on camera and they could see me with my camera...):

entrance to the "yurt"

Anyway, you can see the pictures of everything there online:

Or buy the book with all of the photos and TONS more info than is offered online OR at the exhibit here:

AND, they mentioned nothing about needle felting!!! :(

Oh well... you win some, you lose some. Luckily, we also had a visit to the Met planned, where -- interestingly enough, you ARE allowed to take pictures:

And then on a walk through Central Park on our way to get dinner, we saw at least 12 American Robins, a surefire sign of spring!!! :D

All in all, a very nice day!!! :)

Little Lambie #2

O.K. so here he is: the other lamb vision I came up with:

...and I don't think I like it. I think he's cute, but he didn't come out exactly like I was hoping he would. At least this one has legs, a tail, and isn't balding though, lol. But his legs are too short... note to self for next time.

And as for the face and ears, well, I don't know. Which one do you prefer? Lambie 2, or Lambie 1 (posted below)?:

Please let me know which one you prefer, and why, if you don't mind!!! I really appreciate your input!!! :) Thanks!

Bored... and Unmotivated

Lately I've been feeling really unmotivated to work on my stuff. What do you all do when you feel this way? Any special tricks or techniques for snapping out of it?

First Robin of the Year!!!

Just wanted to stop in quick to mention what a lovely day I had outside today! It was in the 60s, the sun was out even though it wasn't supposed to be, I saw 24 different species of birds today, and the most important one was the American Robin, a symbol of the arrival of springtime weather!
