Rested and Recharged?

Well, definitely rested, prior to re-installing blog pages, shops and answering eMails..  now ready for another vacation.



Umm... perhaps I should have been more clear prior to taking my vacation, that vacation means "gone"... 
meaning away from my computer - meaning not receiving eMails, not answering eMails, not checking eMails, etc ...
I think I have now responded to all eMails which were sent to me - many answers which could be found readily on my blog under the heading of EULA; but apologies for anyone who feels that they had to "unreasonably wait" for a response of felt they were being ignored -  I would never intentionally ignore anyone requesting information.  If I have missed anyone's question, please kindly resend me another note, as there was quite a bit of SPAM in addition to legitimate inquiries.



Thank you very much for all the kind birthday wishes as well as the messages wishing me a restful and happy vacation!  It was very relaxing, but I am anxious to get back to some vacation inspired designs!!  There were several patterns mailed off to associates for testing prior to me leaving, and they are almost ready to be placed in the storefronts - so I will be updating very soon with new patterns!

Chomp, The Carnivorous Plant

I love to garden, and after weeks of either bone drenching rain or hot, sticky, "I don't even feel like moving" weather - I was finally able to get outside to tend to the yard work.
Imagine my amazement when I discovered a new plant just outside my garden wall.




Introducing.. Chomp the Carnivorous Plant... more commonly known as the "Venus Flytrap"
This little bugger was having a dandy of a time with the flies today. One landed right on his bud and sat there, without moving for the longest time.. never daring near those dangerous 'teeth' or mouth.


I'd like to be able to say that Chomp is just as fierce and useful as his carnivorous cousins... ridding your home and garden of all winged, leggy icky little creatures...
I'd like to be able to say that, but I can not...



I've since learned that Chomp is the first of his kind... he's a "Vegan" Carnivorous Plant. Yeah, made no sense to me either - but perhaps that's why he looks a little confused. Either way, I think he's just adorable... and if he doesn't want to eat flies and spiders...well, I can't say as I blame him - I don't want to eat them either!!
Chomp, the Carnivorous Plant contains 10 pages of pattern instructions, with detail oriented photographs and instructions to help you bring this odd little 12 inch garden curiosity together.
