More Embroidery Art Designs!

I am really enjoying the whole embroidery hoop thing – I just can’t get enough!

Here are some new designs I’ve added to the shop:

Inspired by my sister's peacock feather tattoo.

A simple, sweet and affordable gift for someone you care about.

Tufted Bird + Thick-Rimmed Glasses = Bird Nerd!

And one with a nautical twist!

Science Quote & The Number 20

I have 2 random things for today:

1. In the most recent issue of Chemical & Engineering News (if the fact that I receive and read this magazine on a regular basis doesn’t tell you I’m a nerd, I don’t know what does), the cover story was all about the regulatory and science gaps exposed by the disaster in the Gulf.  If you weren’t aware, in a year (provided I am accepted to one of the graduate schools I apply to) I will begin studying for my Ph.D. in the area of environmental chemistry, specifically aquatic chemistry.  The following quote by Amy Scott, one of three young scientists who founded Project Tantalus, completely sums up why I want to do what I want to do:

“This is exactly why you’re trained as a scientist.  As a chemist, I feel I have an obligation to protect our environment from harmful chemicals and pollutants.  I think that it’s important that this information gets out to everyone so people know exactly what they’re swimming in or drinking, and along the way I’ll learn some new science.”

2. At this very moment I have:

  • 200 shop hearts
  • 20 sales
  • 20 positive feedback responses

What beautiful round numbers!!  My favorite number is 20 by the way – “Why?” you ask?  Because it is divisible by many other numbers!  I think it is just the most perfect round number and that is all.

Have a favorite number of your own? Comment and share!  I have proven that no reason is too weird … :)

New Shop Additions to Expect This Week …

Happy Memorial Day! I hope those who have the day off today are enjoying it and those who do have to work are able to escape early and spend time with family and friends!

Just wanted to update you all and share with you some new items I will be listing in my shop throughout the week:

Set of 12 Mini Felt Plush Hearts

I think these little hearts would be cute to send out in cards or packages to let someone know you love and care about them.  Or they would look super-sweet arranged haphazardly in a bowl for decoration! **NOW AVAILABLE**

Felt Christmas Tree Ornaments - On Sale!

Planning early for the holidays!  I’m testing the Etsy waters and listing some of my holiday and autumnal ornaments and decorations early to see what the response is.  Buy now because all of my cooler-weather decor is only on sale during the summer months!

Dopamine Molecule Heart Felt Ornaments

These awesome Dopamine Hearts sell whenever I list a new one, so I made 2 more to put up in my shop.  I love them and they are such a cute and unique ornament or door hanger.
