Owlies & Twittering

The little owlies are already starting to fly out the WhiMSy love doors. I've been a bizzy little crafter makin' lots more for the holidays! I'm excited to bring them to the Christmas bazaar---which, honestly, I'm starting to freak out about! It's only 1 month away! I've no idea how much stuff I'll actually have made by then. I still have to make, like, a bajillion more things. I've not a clue how I'm acutally gonna set up my goodies on display either. I want my space to be cute. And whimsical. And lovely. Oh! I also have to create a "WhiMSy love" banner of some sort. I'm trying not to panic. There's so much to still do. (**Breathe in.......breathe out........Eat cookies.......Eat cupcakes........**)

I really think I will go into crafty hiding now. No visits. No social events. No leaving the house. Of course I'll blog. And craft. Blog & craft. That's it. Until the holidays are over at least.

Oh & I've been hearing & seeing a lot about Twitter. So, I joined. I copied this from an article in The Storque on Etsy's blog: What is Twitter describes itself as "a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: "What are you doing?" After creating an account, people can choose to follow other people's Twitter posts, viewing posts online or via a mobile phone. Twitter is about quick glimpses into you or your brand, as you have 140 characters to type or include interesting links for your Twitter followers to read and respond to.
Simple enough. So, add me as twitter follower !

Here's my Flickr photo today for 'Self Portrait Thursday':


  1. The owls are cuteT! I am loving your new hair BTW!!

  2. For display, what if you got some cool branches and spray painted them cool WhiMSical colors? You could put them in painted terra cotta pots filled with plaster of paris then hang your owlies from the branches?

  3. Tweet, tweet! I'm followin' you--where are we goin'? :)

  4. jennifer--I LOVE that idea! I'm on it...
