Guess who did a little shopping? My birthday is this week, so I treated myself. Remember those 2 vintage necklaces I picked up awhile back? I think I spent $7 for both. Didn't really have anything that matched...until now! Orange you loving those shoes? Green with envy? Hope to wear them at Quilt Market, but I can tell you now, I'll be in pain. I have never been able to wear heels, and love them. At Fall Quilt Market I had these awesome heels that I was determined to wear (I'm 5'1" and feel more like 4'8" next to Amy Butler and Heather Bailey). Instead of looking hot, I staggered around in pain, leaning on anyone that stood close enough. Towards the end of the 2.0 party I yanked them off and wandered around bare footed. I'm just warning you. I will wear them and I will whine. Let me know if you don't like people leaning on you.

Nothing is going as planned today. Camera battery was dead. Trying to send an email to a fellow designer and no matter what I try she isn't getting them. My stat counter has not been working for days and took me hours to figure out the problem, so had to re-install that. All these mechanical things annoy me. It's a love-hate relationship. I hate the problems, but I do love to play on the computer and see what everyone is up to when I have time....and even when I don't really have the time.

So what did I do? I joined Twitter!!! Yes, way! I had never even been on Twitter, but last week was catching up on my blog favs and Heather was telling us she joined Twitter. I know Patty is a huge fan, so I got curious. Went poking around. Next thing I know, I am a legalized Twit. Basically got nothing much done all weekend. If you're interested come join me on Twitter. Check out my sidebar. But beware, it's definately addicting, and a time waster. On the good side, as a self employed person, I don't have regular contact with the outside world. Don't have that problem now! It's a great way to find out what other's are up to, what they're working on in a quick way. Are any of you Twittering? Let me hear from you.

Hey, look what I found on my Flights of Fancy Flickr group? Another handbag made by Simone of Gardenhouse using a bit of my Garden Trellis fabric. She always uses the most awesome brooches and vintage ribbon.

And look at this Orange dress! A combination of Sandi's Farmer's Market and another of my Garden Trellis colorways...orange, of course. Wonderful Spring color.

My second line of fabrics should be here this week. I can't wait!!! It will become busier than busy once they arrive, but I promise some sneak peeks.


  1. Happy Birthday Paula, I hope you're having a wonderful week!

  2. I'm so jealous of those cute green shoes! They are super!
    Blister Block and those little ball of foot pad thingys are the best thing ever to happen to high heels, by the way!

  3. Hey Paula! Awesome new shoes!! I'd better get me some tall ones too or you're gonna tower over me at the show, neighbor!

  4. Happy Birthday!! I think beautiful new shoes are a great way to treat yourself! I think April birthdays are some of the nicest- all the gorgeous flowers blooming just for you!

  5. Happy Belated Birthday! Great shoes! Try the ball pad things and see if they make a difference. Cute bag and dress made with your fabric. That must really make you feel happy!

    Hey, I'm a Twit too - just started and only have a few friends so far. Look for me: somethinglisa

  8. Happy Birthday!!! Those shoes are fantastic. I'm too tall to wear shoes like that, so I'm a tad bit jealous. :)
