New Items Added

So I finally got my pictures from my photo session with my new friend.  There are not as many photos as I thought there would be :( But she has been so kind to lend me her photography tent so over the next few days I am going to take some photos of my own.  I am excited about this and can't wait to see the results.  I have also decided, although I don't have many, but any unisex hats or scarves I have I am going to get my step son to model.  hehe I really need a little girl!! He needs new footie aka soccer boots so may have to bribe him haha.  Although I did do a photoshoot  with him about 2 years ago and he loads of fun.  He was quite the little stud :) I've added some photos of our shoot.  Ok so he doesn't look too happy in the last one.  Well actually he thought it was funny to pull a face.  I love the photo though!

Have a look here for my new child/adult halloween pumpkin hat

Item Sold

When I logged onto my Artfire this morning I was happy to see that I had sold an item!  http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/3493160  I wonder if it has anything to do with my new blog or my twitter account...?  Now if only I could figure out how to add a widget with all my positive feedback on here and on Artfire.  Stayed tuned for the Dinky Car Belt.  I have finished it and now just need to take pictures and upload it.

New Friends and Photos for Artfire

So after nearly 6 years of searching for Albanian classes so I would be able to communicate with my husbands family I have finally found one!!  It was towards the end of last year and really a fluke but I met 2 lovely Albanian ladies at my step sons school and found out about  Shpresa Programme.  It's a charity that helps Albanian women and also has classes for children to learn Albanian.  They also learn traditional Albanian dancing. Fun right!  Anyway I started taking my step son last year and this year on our first day back I found out they were offering Albanian classes to us ladies that were married to Albanians.  I am really excited that the next time I go to see his family in Albania, Italy or Greece I may be able to have an actual conversation!!  Instead of one that's half English half Albanian! lol  Tomorrow I am going to meet up with a fellow student who is going to help me re-due some of my pictures on my Artfire and take some one of the many things that haven't been photographed yet.  I am really excited about this and can't wait to upload them.  So check in to my account soon so you can see all the lovely changes.
