home is where you rest your hat

For the past week I have been completing orders and taking orders! Yay I am super excited about the new web presence and am hoping the next round of hats brings in some more orders!

How sweet is that, I love that she felt it because I enjoy creating all of the hats and want them to have a special place and noggin to keep cozy! So she is my favorite customer and friend! Here are the new hats hats hats!! If you like any please email me and order away or if you have an idea you want I'm all ears!

I came across this quote this morning in my adventures of early morning internet surfing... "Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties." ~ Helen Keller It made me really think about the choices we have in this short life. We have to try to relish every moment in health, happiness, sickness and sorrow and remember this is the one life you have been blessed with. So each day I will take one moment to be thankful for all that I have been blessed to see and experience {the love of my children, the warmth of the sun on my face} I will take one moment to be proud of all the obstacles I have overcome and I will look with excitement to the future and for all it holds. I will walk through my life with my eyes, my mind and my soul open to all this wonderful world has to offer!

Creating it all

When it comes to daily life, mine is not complete without some form of learning or experiencing a new creative outlet. My latest interest is photography. I got this awesome new camera and am obsessed with learning to use it. The Cannon 4Ti is so amazing I want to use it for taking lovely pics of my kids, my aprons, my hats, my skirts, my dog, heck even my garden {which is a work in progress}. I have signed up for a photography class so soon I will have pictures of all of my heart and hand made creations which will be up for order and purchase! That said I am off to tweak the site and look at my e learning assignments for my photo class! {I love online learning because even a stay at home kind of working mom can fit in a class here and there!!}

ta ta for now...

wherefore art thou?

Although for the past several months there has been no news from the "studio" I have still been creating/designing/crocheting/knitting. We are living in the Charlotte area and really getting settled. It was a tough transition but I am starting to love love the south. In finding my way building new friendships and maintaining old I have learned many lessons. The lessons don't all relate to sewing/crocheting/designing but lessons learned, some hard and some rewarding. My most valuable lesson is to stop trying to please others, do what makes me happy and don't feel guilty for it! I have learned to enjoy myself more this way. Like everybody else I have some great qualities that I am strengthening and some not so great qualities that I am working on. One of the better qualities about myself is my interest in trying new things and exploring possibilities. Which is a reason there is so many pieces to Twinkle Design Studio! On that thought over the next few months I plan to reorganize my "hobbies" and try to find a place to sell my goodies! Any and all suggestions are welcome! ... For now I must bid adieu
