About me.... I live in the :flagus: with my husband and two children. I'm originally from :flagcanada: . I like to play Guild Wars 2 and am very fond of the quaggans in it. I like reading a lot and can lose hours doing so. I am no where near as good as my mom and sister are at drawing and painting (my hands shake, which surprisingly did NOT make it easier to play viola and get the vibrato right) so I would rather make physical objects or edit pictures. I like making things but run low on space and money quite easily..

:heart: :heart: I greatly appreciate all the favorites and the comments!! :heart: :heart: Forgive me for being poor at social graces and not responding to every one.

Do you see an item I have made that you really really like and want? Feel free to make me an offer on it. Most of my pieces I will happily reproduce or even sell the original of.

A few of the assorted Pokemon pendants I made using upcycled real trading cards, metal bezels, and Ice Resin.   Simple and cute. :-)

I realized that 2016 is already halfway done now. Eeeps. 

My goal for one craft a day has been going a little iffy but I have not forgotten about it. Count wise I might be behind but I think I will be able to catch up still for averaging things. I am happy I was able to get a bunch of circuit board jewelry done and I have been working on remaking some previous jewelry pieces to take to craft shows this fall. My plushie making has slowed down and currently no commissions means I am able to finish off personal projects that were sidelined or even start a few more. Hancocks Fabrics is closing and I bought a whole bunch for projects I had in mind. Seriously, like 4 shopping carts. (60-80% around anniversary time means I got a lot of fabric for my hobby. :-) I love my husband.)  I am putting the finishing touches on two skull goblets this week, one of the projects that was sidelined due to other priorities. 

Last year I built myself a large raised garden in the back yard.  So far this year my ability to grow things is better than last years, but sadly our area is in a moderate drought and I cant afford to water it as long as needed to grow really well. But I did still get some delicious veggies so it wasn't a waste and i did learn a bit from it. :-) Next year should be better.

For the last two months I have been working on improving my health and just generally taking better care of myself.  I feel much better after taking a good look at my eating habits and making healthy changes and after starting a moderate exercise routine.  I didn't have the motivation or desire to really implement these changes before but I am really glad I have been able to now. Embracing technology a little more has helped keep me on track. I'm not great at tasks and motivations but small improvements are better than being a slug. :-) 

I am a quarter done my to-do list for the summer, guess I better get back at it. :-) 
Pair of Cowggans by Koreena
Pair of Cowggans
The Good, The Bad, and The Cuddly. 

Each are approx. 12" tall (not counting their hats) and are made with an extremely soft, tri colour pony print faux fur material with black ultra cuddle soles. They sport removable felt cowboy hats which are held on by pinnable broach fasteners. Each plushie is hand made in a smoke free, pet free home and are made with my own pattern that was based off the quaggans from Guild Wars 2.

I heard that a GW2 player named Ravid aka ROovid the Quaggan from Tarnished Coast once found your page and left a comment because he thought it was totally CoOOOo.

Once I open the queue again I will post how to get onto the list on Facebook.  I am getting closer to the end of the current queue (finally!!) so hopefully that will just be a few more weeks. *cross fingers*
