light at the end of the tunnel...

... I can almost see it tonight!
This has been a terrible week! I had low blood sugars at the start of the week and high sugars at the end of the week... there was no reason for such a fluctuation, either, I was doing the exact same thing each day. I have been an insulin dependant diabetic since I was 10 years old. One low sugar or one high sugar, can take you quite a few days to get over, but wacky sugars, days in a row, is almost too much to handle. I'm feeling so much better tonight, though! I don't know why. I guess my sugars are normal-ish today and I had a good sleep before supper. I feel like I could conquer all of my 101 projects before midnight!
I am so happy that Survivor started this past week! this is going to be such a good season, with the "villains" and "heros"! These are players that actually want to be there. There will be no one complaining or saying "oh, I wanna go home," this season! I am rooting for Rufus and Russell... I don't know why they voted out Sugar, tho. I guess they forgot that she got a point for them in the reward challange and wasn't afraid to go topless to get that point!

mental institute?

I think I'm loosing my mind. Quite frequently, I will forget what I am doing when I get there, my thought are so erratic (3 a : characterized by lack of consistency, regularity, or uniformity ). Maybe it's because I have so many projects on the go and don't know where to start first, sometimes, and often end up not getting anything done. I like being busy, and having a "to do" list, but it doesn't give me much time to create something new or something for myself... if that makes any sense... I wonder if I'm the only proper thinking person around. I see so many people making these bizzare choices and wonder what's between their ears. Maybe they are the normal ones and I'm the bizzare one...

New projects this week

I've been pretty busy since my last post and wanted to share, with you, my newest projects!

This is the cat stuffie I made for saltybean, for our stuffie swap. I think she will love it, as I am quite happy with it, myself. I used those foam chips to stuff it with: I'm not too sure if I'm fond of them yet...

Here are two coat that I made. The first is a tribute to Twitter, on the Blythe. The "t" is much more teal-y-er than what the photo shows. "follow me" is embroidered on the back. Available in my etsy shop. The second is a yellow duck raincoat made for Lati yellow. I made it for a swap I'm doing. It's made from real raincoat material and I think it came out wonderfully. I will list it in my etsy soon. I wonder if others will fall in love...?

Wayne found some wonderful skateboard catatlogs in a dumpster, they are clean and barely even used! I chose one of them, with the heaviest paper, and made these envelopes. I already had the template, traced out several of them, Wayne cut them out for me, and I glued them together. Really funky images on them. Lot of 15 available in my etsy right now!

Next, I have these twin mermaid dotee dolls to show you. A friend wanted me to make one for another friend, so I ended up making twins and sending one to each friend! I just love making mermaid dotee dolls! I tried to make them look the same, as close as possible. They always end up smaller than what I had hoped. Next time, I shall try to use more fabric, so that it comes out bigger.

This isn't a project, so much as I just wanted to show them off! My Sonny Angels arrived this week. Oh, I just love them! I fell so much in love, that I bought four more, second hand for super cheap. I think they are just adorable, anatomically correct and all!
