June Featured Etsy Blogger

In out Etsy Bloggers Street Team we have a multi-talented person who can't get enough of Etsy! Alicia Mae has three Etsy stores plus her blog and personal website. What a busy lady! I read she is going to be busy at the end of the month because she is moving more north. I live in Michigan so I can relate that the temperatures where she lives are unbareable to her. I would agree. All of us from Etsy Bloggers wish her a safe trip and a smooth move. Congratulations Alicia!

A most comfortable bracelet

This is a very comfortable bracelet. It stays in place very well, but if it does happen to turn around on your wrist, the clasp is very cute, so it doesn't matter! I had a lot of fun making this bracelet, and hope it goes to a good home. hee,hee.
This bracelet measures 7 ¾” long. It is made out of red sponge coral discs, a clasp made with antique buttons (purchased from etsy store “simonrocks”), and seed beads.

The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wind;
The snail's on the thorn:
God's in his heaven -
All's right with the world

Worm Poop!

Have you ever seen a leaf disappear into the ground?
It was probably a worm pulling that leaf down.
Because, when a worm needs something to munch,
it pulls a leaf down into its hole for lunch.
A dead leaf for lunch. A dead leaf for lunch.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about worms.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about worms.
And when a worm gets done eating a leaf,
like all animals, it poops for relief.
Now talking about worm poop might sound rude.
But worm poop is important plant food,
important plant food.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about worms.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about worms.
And when it rains, the water runs down into the worm’s hole.
If he stays there, he’ll drown. So the worms come out
on the sidewalks and streets to breathe some air
and get squished by feet (yeeech!), squished by feet.
Watch those feet.
Let the worm dig his hole and keep the ground loose.
It makes it really easy for all the plant’s roots
to get air and the food that the worm makes.
Just don’t step on the worms. That’s all it takes.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about worms.

Jaywalker Finger Cuff

Here is a hilarious e-mail conversation I had with my sister about an awesome finger cuff she knit up on size US 000 needles using handspun laceweight yarn!

“I laughed out loud when I saw the name. I wasn't slow on that one! Really awesome cuff!”
“I don't understand why this is funny- please do tell!!”
“Don’t you know?”
“No- should I change the title..... Is it perverted or something?? Tell me about it”
“What would you do if you were hitchhiking and the cars just passed you by?”
“What are you talking about? You are making me laugh and I still don't understand...”
”'Jaywalker’ is a super popular sock pattern that I loosely used as a guide for the pattern in this knitting.”
“OOOhhh, I was thinking “jaywalker” was “hitchhiker”. This made me think it was solely made to decorate the finger you flipped those cars off with.”
“Ah-hah! it is hilarious- you crack-a me up”
“The funniest thing is that I was so happy with myself that I wasn’t slow on getting that joke…it wasn’t a joke. Wow, I am slow! Now I have to laugh at myself! I like the jaywalker stitch!”
