Elephant finished, Etsy shop open, went to the LYS

I finished that elephant and put it up for sale… the first ever item in my Etsy shop!

I was not successful in my aspiration to not start anything else before something was done… I did crochet a quick doll dress before finishing the elephant. Oops. I didn’t get a picture of it before it went off to the black hole of the kids’ rooms either. Oh well.

The other projects are coming along nicely, I really should take some progress pics. X|

I went to Spinnin Yarns – the local yarn store – the other day and ended up spending more than I meant to…

Anyone that knows Yuji can tell by the buttons that she went with me. I’m totally blaming her for how much we spent.

I’m horrible, but this is the first time I’ve been there since they moved to a bigger place back in February. The new place is amazing though! My middle-years resolution is to support local businesses more. It’s kind of annoying how difficult it is to find out about local businesses and events here. The town website barely lists anything, and we get a “newspaper” listing weekly events… but we get it Thursday evening and it lists things from Monday -Wednesday. So basically with just that paper to go on, I have to scour the internet finding out if that organization is doing something else in the future. And I have found out a few events from that, but I just wish there was an easier way.

As for local businesses, the only way to find out about them seems to be to go out walking… and it’s been dangerously hot (though I really have no excuse for not walking around to them sooner since I have lived here for over 4 years). Not to mention I don’t have much money. I don’t want to go walking to those places and then not give them any money. I want to find out about them, then get money and go. Sigh. WHY U NO HAVE WEB PRESENCE? I think I found Spinnin Yarns through ravelry… I would never have known it existed if not for that.

Ahh well… here’s hoping for a day that isn’t dangerously hot so I can walk around… *drains coffee cup*
