Book Publishing & "Kinder Surprise Eggs"

Hello everybody!!! I hope this post finds you well. I know it's been awhile since I've written, but I promise I'm going to start posting more often really soon. I've been busy making new things for the shop and writing a book. I'm writing a Limerick book with corresponding pictures that I've taken of this and that. I should be finished with it in a few days and I'll certainly let you know when it's published. If you are interested, you will be able to purchase it from "Blurb.com". While you are there, you just have to check out my friend Van's publications about Jacko the Sock Monkey. It's hilarious! Van is quite the writer and I tell him often that he missed his calling. I really think his books will be very popular. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about it. I'll be sure and pass the info on to Van.

I was cleaning out the pantry yesterday and ran across a few
of these "Kinder Surprise Eggs" that my friend Tamara up in Canada sent me. They are the neatest things. Of course you cannot buy them in the USA ~ I'm sure it's because of the wrapping & the small parts that come in the "Surprise". But if you know somebody outside of the USA, get them to send you some. They are sold all over the world except for here. What it is, is a White & Milk Chocolate Egg that is hollow in the middle and comes with a little yellow and orange plastic capsule inside which houses a tiny toy, with instructions on how to put it together. A lot of the little toys are interactive and cute, cute, cute. This one shown in the pictures had a precious little "Fox" Motorcycler in it and the chocolate is very, very good ~ yummy ~

I'll leave you with these awesome earrings that I made for the shop and one of my limericks ~ {hope you enjoy it} ~
Sometimes my brain's in a fog
My creative mind needs a jog
When I'm not at all tired
and feeling quite wired
I'll sit down and write in my blog

Have a happy Tuesday!!!!

xxoo ~ Peace ~ Kathy

My Interview, House Selling & New Stuff In The Shop

I've been missing you all so much! But, we have been awful busy here lately. First of all, we are 99.9% sure that we have the house sold {Yay}. The cute little couple that are buying it are really really sweet and nice and we know they will take good care of our house and love it as much as we do. Selling houses is a pain ~ you have to constantly keep everything picked up and clean, so you can show it in the drop of a hat. So now I can relax {a little bit}.

I was so excited last week! I was contacted by "I Love Bling" and asked for an interview. So, if you want to read it, it's here. It was a really nice interview, I thought. Let me know what you think.

Today I've been pretty much making new stuff all day long. My favorite thing is this pair of earrings:I named them "Rock Me Tonight" ~ my fav "Billy Squier" song ever! You know where to find them if you want a closer look. Besides these, there are several other new things listed as well. Plus, I have some really cool things I made today that will be listed either tonight or tomorrow. Check out the shop when you get a chance.

Well my little peeps, I just wanted to drop in and say hello and hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
xxoo & peace ~ Kathy
