Back into the Blogging...

So I guess I have been kind of distracted lately. Luckily I came up with some new items, like the Teddy Bear Beanie and kitty hats in that time, despite the distractedness.

Random word of the day:

foofaraw \FOO-fuh-raw\, noun:
A fuss over a matter of little importance.

I've been trying to become more focused. Meditational yoga helped, but now I need answers to my questions about how to better run the Lightning Cat shop. So I am reading up on the subject and making a few changes to my shop. One of those changes, as you might notice, is an increase in prices. Last year, I did not make much money due to charging too little for items and not charging for packaging and gift wrapping. The increase in prices is so that I can sustain my business and not fall into a bottomless money pit of doom. I'm sure you understand. No one wants to fall into a bottomless money pit of doom, or so I would like to think so.

Anywayz, I hope you enjoy your day and avoid any foofaraws!

Marriage Is Like A Bandaid

On top of my culmination of crazy ambitions to be rich and rule the world (See previous post), I have a crazy strong urge to get married and have millions of babies. Although I am deathly afraid of being married and having kids, I feel that I need to be married and have lots of babies. Sometimes I am confused as to whether I really want this or I am just being incredibly impatient. I see all these cute babies and I wants one! They're so cute. I know my babies would be uber-cute and rule the world; and they'd have the brains to do so. Perhaps marriage is like a bandaid, and you've just got to pull it off real quick and get it over with.
I don't want some big religious wedding. It would be hypocritical since I'm an atheist. I want karaoke and drinking at my committment ceremony (or wedding, whatever you want to call it)! I just want the whole thing to be a fun time with close friends and family. (I'm not into traditional stuff.) I really want to sing (perhaps with a band) meaningful songs to my sweetie. I think it would be awesome! And then get drunk and have a ball. ;-)
Forever impatient with the slow pace of life,
Stephanie ;-)

Edit: I just added a new page titled Live Green! to my blog! Scroll down to find it under the "Pages" column on the right, or click here. This new page has tips on how to live green and a recipe for a natural household cleaner! :)

Figuring Out What I Want

This is my attempt at figuring out what I want. I suppose most of what's bothering me is figuring out how to get what I want, since I pretty much know what I want. So I made a bubble chart in an attempt to figure it all out and help myself to be more focused. I guess I'm just an impatient person who wants everything now, now, now.

Edit: Actually, right now all I want is a nice tan and not to worry about this crap. I'm thinking about making my bubble chart into an artpiece. My scribbles are somewhat illegible; sorry! :P

New Teddy Bear Beanie

My newest and cutest creation is the Teddy Bear Beanie! A few nights ago, I was crocheting a beanie with big bear ears, and I decided to add eyes and then a little bear nose. ^ - ^

NEW Teddy Bear Beanie!

I'm getting ready for the Art in the Bar III on June 4th at the Knitting Factory in Boise, Idaho. If you live in the area, please plan to attend! :) I'll be there, along with 40 other artists, selling my original artwork and handmade goodies. I hope to see you there! It's going to be a fun event.

Join me for Art in the Bar III!

In other random news... I just discovered the awesomeness of the music by The Stills. Unfortunately, the band broke up last month. :C Fortunately, there's such a thing as digital music and their albums are online. ;-) I just downloaded "Don't Talk Down," "Being Here," and "I'm With You."

Have a nice day! ^ - ^
