New on Zibbet


Some sellers on Zibbet are starting to see their new websites from Zibbet.
You can see mine at http://cozy.zibbet.com
My first impressions are positive. I love how the products are visible above the fold. I like that inside the shop my categories are displayed in a list on the left.

For a comparison my Zibbet shop is at http://zibbet.com/cozy

Twitter Tips

I have been working to build my Twitter account into something that is useful, friendly and full of sharing from many sources. I follow and have followers that have interests in knitting, crocheting, jewelry, vintage, books, photography and more. I have really enjoyed interacting with so many people by retweeting, tweeting, direct messages and replies. It does keep me busy and out of trouble.

One of the simple things I have discovered are Pinned Tweets. When someone retweets me I go to their profile to find something to retweet (or RT) of theirs. I think that is more friendly and useful to us both than just sending a quick thanks. I like it when I see on the profile a pinned tweet. It means that tweet is something they really want shared and I am happy to do so.

I have started doing pinned tweets on my own profile and change them once a week or so. Sometimes I pin a tweet about a blog post, other times a product from my shop. It makes it easy for someone to find something to retweet of mine.

You may want to try it for your own twitter account if you aren't already.

I found some other Twitter Tips on the Just Unfollow Blog.

My latest pinned tweet is this one.

Handmade Fuzzy


Handmade Fuzzy, a featured shop of a group of friends on Zibbet, has a name that makes me smile to think or say it. The variety of items in the shop will make you smile. Babies will smile wearing the great hand knit socks, hats and bibs she has for the little ones. I will give you a peek at the hats and then send you off with links for shopping and connecting with Handmade Fuzzy.




And here you go. I am sending you off to shop, explore and connect.

Flowers by LJP


I'm a crafter who loves to press flowers and use them to make pendants and cards. I make beaded jewelry and beaded bobby hair pins, too. I love to work with vintage postage stamps to make magnets.
I am a crafter myself. Silly obvious statement if you have ever read this blog at all. What is want you to know is that I take great pleasure sharing what other crafters do. The crafting community is filled with so many skills, techniques and styles that it is simply amazing.

Today's shop is Flowers by LJP. The variety is impressive here with items made with vintage stamps, pressed flowers and vintage components. You will find these materials in earrings, necklaces, bracelets, eyeglass chains, magnets and lanyards. There are too many to show you all in one blog post so I have chosen a couple of my favorites to share today. When you are ready to shop just click on the pictures and you will be whisked away to Flowers by LJP.

A Jackson Lake Weekend

This was a weekend of firsts for me. I drove a pickup with a trailer. I drove a boat. I drove a pickup with a trailer with a boat on it. We spent the night on the boat for the first time as well. It did not take much expertise on my part since I only drove the truck straight up the boat ramp. The boat driving was big giant circles in the middle of a wide open lake. I did try out reverserse on the boat. There was no docking or putting the boat on the trailer for me, those tasks are still Jim's job.

Our first and last stop on the Jackson Lake was Moran Bay using the Signal Mountain boat ramp for getting in and out of the water. It is a beautiful spot at the base of Mount Moran.


All around the lake you could see the gold of the coming fall. That is Mount Moran in the center. The gold hillside on the right is at the back end of the bay.

We had dinner, spent the night and had breakfast in Sergeant's Bay. Jim grilled steak and mushrooms for dinner. As the sun went down the stars came out and we could hear elk calling all around us. If you have never heard that sound google it. We were the only ones in that spot as the day ended. The reflections on the water were so breathtaking.

While waiting for those stars a couple of games of Phase 10 were played and we each won one of them.



Morning started with coffee of course and breakfast. As we were leaving Sergeant's Bay a couple deer came down to a grassy spot on the shoreline to have a morning meal too.

One more leisurely cruise around the lake where I drove the boat for awhile in big circles. We took in all the beauty of gold and green, blue water and gray stony mountains.

Saying goodbye to those mountains and the lake we got the boat all buttoned up for the ride home.

So those were my memories for this Monday. Do you have any memories to share?

Wow Friday Already!

At the end of what has been a prolific week of blogging for me I do find myself with just a couple more things to share with you.

My newest listing in my Zibbet shop is a gray and silver infinity scarf.



It was supposed to be a red infinity scarf. That red scarf is a lovely deep tomato red color that for the life of me I could not get a good picture of. All of my tries came out faded and to orange looking. Will have to try that one another day.

I spent a great deal of time on twitter this week. There are some amazing people to follow and interact with out there. I enjoy them all. If you are interested in following me on twitter or google+ the links are at the end of the post.

In other random news I am currently knitting another scarf, blues and purples this time. My current Netflix marathon is Dawson's Creek. It will disappear tomorrow and I had never watched it. The teenaged drama made a not too distracting background to computer or knitting time.

Monday will be here soon and I will be back then.

Monday Memories Wind River Canyon

Monday seems like a good day to reminisce about events large and small. That is my plan, a new plan. I am great at making new plans. We will see how this one goes.

We recently took a drive along the Boysen Reservoir and the Wind River Canyon. This drive goes between Shoshone and Thermopolis in Wyoming. Not a long drive but certainly a beautiful one.


Our first site was a man and his dog fly fishing. The dog is named Bear. I know that because I heard the owner call him, don't know the fisherman's name though.


Farther up the canyon and around every bend I saw again and again the beauty of where we were. You can barely see it here but there is snow at the highest levels of those mountains.

Our little journey included a stop for lunch at the Thermopolis Cafe. The food was good and the service very friendly.

So, how was your weekend?
