Excuse me, have you seen 2014 around here anywhere?

So…um, this is awkward. I’ve been meaning to write an entry for awhile now and it looks like it’s been more than two months since I last did. Whoops. And here we are not only in 2015, but midway through the second month of 2015. Yeah sorry about that. I did get around to making […]

Holiday Gift Guide

Posted by miss m on Friday, December 5, 2014 @ 12:49pm in General Blather, Holidays, PhoenixFire Designs |

The holidays start showing up in store decorations months in advance these days, yet it seems we STILL manage to get ourselves overwhelmed trying to figure out the perfect gift every year! And despite “Christmas creep” taking over Thanksgiving and even Halloween, it still normally blindsides us. My first suggestion: Avoid the mall and mass […]

2014

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, January 1, 2014 @ 2:19pm in Blog, Family, General Blather, Holidays, kitties, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics |

2013 went out with a whoosh as it flew past me and my intentions of posting more frequently in the blog. The second half of November and all of December became unbelievably busy and there was simply no free time available for updating, despite the fact I really did intend to many times. So here’s […]

Holiday Wishes 2013

Posted by miss m on Friday, November 15, 2013 @ 3:07pm in General Blather, Happy Mail, Holidays |

Holiday Wishes is a fun idea where you post your wishlist – anything from cards to pipe dreams like a car – and then you go through lists other people have posted and see if you can fulfill any of their wishes. I’ve been doing it on a community on Livejournal for years and years […]

PhoenixFire Designs 2013 Holiday Order Deadlines

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 6, 2013 @ 3:16pm in General Blather, Holidays, PhoenixFire Designs |

HOLIDAY SHIPPING DEADLINES I know people don’t want to think about Holiday & Christmas shopping yet. BUT…as everything is handmade by my two very human hands, there is more lead time required than grabbing something made in China from Wal-Mart. Especially factoring in shipping. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS REQUIRE THE MOST TIME. International orders shipping first class […]

Your Daily Cat

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 @ 3:37pm in General Blather, kitties, Photography and Pics |

Ok, not literally daily but I do find myself taking a lot of pics of my girls. First, because they’re always around. LOL And second, because dammit, I think they’re adorable. Plus, cats are a great way to practice photography because they move a lot, they’re quick, you have to really get a good lock […]

Photo Update

Playing catch-up in photos… I managed to get the village up around the tree the night before my craft market but I still haven’t gotten my monorail up yet: Of course, you know what that means. Tree + village = Gracie! The craft market went great. Not only did I have a pleasant amount of […]

Love’s Surgery Tomorrow

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, January 11, 2012 @ 10:30pm in Family, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

Big day tomorrow. Love goes in for his hernia repair tomorrow. He’s nervous, I’m a wreck and the place is a disaster. Getting sick with the food poisoning was the worst timing ever since it left me in a lurch this week preparing for his surgery. Never got the tree down Sunday because I wasn’t […]
